Fresh Baked Friday: Turkey Egg White Scramble

This recipe is intended to be a breakfast dish, but I've eaten it for dinner three nights in a row. What can I say? I like to break the rules.

I've been a little more conscious of what I eat lately because the wintertime tends to make me a little lax on the health side of things. It's cold outside and all I want to do is eat cheesy pasta and cookies until my heart's content. And I have.

Of course, these habits have caught up to me and I found myself running a little slower and getting tired more quickly. Pasta and sweets are fine in moderation, but my overindulgence began to impact my fitness routine, and I couldn't have that.

I found this turkey scramble in my mother's clean eating cookbook and knew I had to try it. Lean ground turkey, fresh roma tomatoes, spinach and egg whites make this a balanced and satisfying meal. Try it out for breakfast (or lunch, or dinner) this weekend to get back on the path of healthy eating.

Delicious! I'll be having this for dinner again tonight.

Have a happy and healthy weekend, everyone!
