Happy Friday! I hope you had a great week and are ready for some rest and relaxation this weekend! I have to start off today’s post with a big…..

“HAPPY 30th BIRTHDAY BOYFRIEND”!!!

You have finally hit the age that you have been dreading! I told you that you would make it to see 30! πŸ˜‰ You are a smart, successful, supportive, caring and of course, good-looking πŸ˜‰ boyfriend and I feel blessed to have you in my life! Now, stop working and start enjoying your birthday! πŸ™‚

Ok, the sappy stuff is over with! πŸ™‚ Like I mentioned yesterday, I will be working on that ‘unhealthy’ 7- layer birthday cake that the boyfriend requested for probably 90% of the day today! I will be sure to take some pictures to share with you next week! But before we dive into a decadent cake recipe, lets kick off the weekend with a fall inspired breakfast scramble that is loaded with protein and fiber!

Fit Ingredients

  • 3 large egg whites
  • 2oz (56g) ground turkey breast
  • 2 tbs (13g) ground flax
  • 2tbs diced onion
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 large apple (about 90g), chopped
  • 1-2 tbs (7-14g) walnuts
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions

1. In a bowl combine your egg whites and flax.

2. Heat a non stick skillet over medium heat.

3. Saute your onion and ground turkey breast for 2-3 minutes, making sure that your turkey is mostly cooked through.

4. Add your egg whites and flax to the pan.

5. Scramble your eggs until desired doneness (make sure to keep moving the eggs so they don’t brown).

6. Remove pan from the heat.

7. Add thyme, salt & pepper (if using) to eggs. Mix well.

8. Mix your diced apple into your eggs.*

9. Put your egg scramble in a bowl and sprinkle with walnuts.

**Another option is to add your diced apple in with your egg whites and flax so that they cook slightly. I wanted mine to be left raw, so I added them after the eggs were cooked.

This breakfast bowl was out of this world! It had the sweet flavor of apple and the savory flavor of left over thanksgiving turkey from the ground turkey breast and thyme! It was amazing! Plus it can very easily be adapted to meet your personal nutrition needs by adding more egg whites, turkey, apple or walnuts!

  • Did you use pre-cooked ground turkey? And when did you add it in? When you put the eggs into the pan or afterwards? This sounds amazing and I cannot wait to try it!
