Feta Egg Scramble!

Today I was fortunate to have the day off (even though that means I have to work over the weekend!) and got to make myself a nice, healthy breakfast. I'm a little tired of the same old cereal and fruit that I've been doing and wanted something a little I also wanted something to give me protein (and carbs!) to help fuel me up for my trip to the gym this afternoon.

Looking in the fridge for things to make an omelet with, I forgot that I bought the feta! And having tomatoes and avocado left from my quesadilla night I got to work on a quick healthy meal!


  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 very thin slice of feta cheese (maybe 1/2oz)
  • 5 cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 avocado
  • 1tsp lime juice
  • Cilantro, salt and pepper, to taste
Chop tomatoes and avocado into small chunks. Mix with lemon or lime juice and season with salt and pepper as desired. Set aside. 

Beat the egg and egg white well together until a bit frothy. Heat a small pan over medium heat, spray with cooking spray. Add eggs to pan, stirring frequently. Once eggs are about halfway done, crumble in the feta. The great thing about feta is that it is naturally lower in fat and it has such a strong, wonderful flavor that you really don't need much of it to flavor your food! Continue to stir eggs and cheese over medium heat until cooked through and cheese is melted.

Top scramble with tomatoes and avocado and sprinkle with cilantro. Serve with some multigrain toast and/or a piece of fruit to round out your meal!

*This would also be great with some red onion and a little spice (think cayenne pepper, hot sauce and/or jalepeno).
