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.
Turkey Egg White Scramble
4 oz. lean ground turkey (about 2/3 cup cooked)
2 egg whites
2 tsp olive oil
1 roma tomato, diced
1 cup baby spinach
1 tsp minced garlic
Salt & pepper to taste
- In a frying pan over medium heat, cook lean ground turkey until fully browned. Drain excess fat and place in a bowl.
- In the same pan, scramble the egg whites and cook until done. Add to bowl of cooked ground turkey.
- In the same pan, sauté olive oil, diced tomatoes, baby spinach, and minced garlic until baby spinach is slightly wilted. Add to turkey and egg white mixture.
- Stir all ingredients together and season with salt and pepper.
Delicious! I'll be having this for dinner again tonight.
Have a happy and healthy weekend, everyone!
