This is a really easy way to make more of your scrambled eggs in this one-pan healthy breakfast scramble recipe. It tastes good whilst kick-starting fibre intake for the day with the addition of baby spinach and sweet cherry tomatoes.
Eggs are a really good source of protein & contain 11 different vitamins and minerals!
Every day we want to aim for 5-7 serves of vegetables and as well as a different variety of plant foods to look after the health of our guts. The one-pan healthy breakfast scramble contains nearly 30% of the recommended daily intake of fibre, so can 100% be classified as a high-fibre breakfast and in my opinion, a great way to start the day. You can mix up the veggies and use whatever you have to hand. Mushrooms would make another great option too!
Key Nutrients - Breakfast Scramble
Protein – protein is used in every single cell in our bodies and this recipe contains approximately 12g. A rough guide rule of thumb for the amount of protein we need to consume in a day is 0.8g per kg of body weight and this requirement goes up if you exercise.
Fibre – fibre is king and starting breakfast with a grain bread and some veggies hits nearly 30% of the recommended daily intake of fibre. Fibre is helpful to regulate bowel movements, reduce cholesterol and keep you feeling fuller for longer
Magnesium – the vast majority of people don’t consume enough magnesium in their diet and similarly to fibre, this is a perfect way to give your intake a kick-start with approximately 100mg of the recommended daily intake per serve (recommendations are currently 320mg for females and 420mg for males).
