Mexican Breakfast Scramble

Hello and Happy Monday! Two main reasons for this post: 1. I just have to share that I slept 10 1/2 hours last night! Oh man it was super. Reason 2. I have a new favorite breakfast recipe and I just have to share because I can't get enough. Breakfast is undoubtedly my favorite meal of the day but recently I've been a little burnt out on egg whites and toast so I started thinking of other ways to get my morning protein and carbs in. 

If you follow me on Instagram you've probably noticed I'm loving black beans and salsa lately so I used those as inspiration for my Mexican Breakfast Scramble. 

- 3 egg whites
- 1/4 cup brown rice/quinoa (or just brown rice) 
- 1/4 cup black beans 
- 1/4 cup ground turkey with taco seasoning
- 1/2 cup broccoli (or your favorite green veggie, I did spinach yesterday) 
- Salsa for topping 

- Add everything to a pan and scramble up! 

This is a great way to switch things up if you need a little change and it works great for pre-workout too. Speaking of, I'm off to the gym to hit shoulders and I'll be back tomorrow to share my workout! 


  1. looks delicious! and yay for 10 hours of sleep! :) that must have felt awesome :)

  2. Woah! So much going on in that breakfast. It would be a bomb for my tummy, especially with the beans! ;)
    Good way to change things up though! Thanks for sharing

  3. Yay for sleep!!! Anything you did differently? Funny, I have also been on a uber black bean kick. I literally plan my meals around black beans so I can have them LOL!!! Okay, this is going to sound weird but trust me. My fav way to eat them: Black beans topped with coconut oil, pepper, garlic powder, Mrs. Dash onion seasoning and microwave for like 30-40 seconds mass them up and OMG. SO GOOD. My version on re fried beans hehe! Mexican girls gotta have her re fried frijoles ;0P

  4. This looks amazeballs. Making this week. Shell-less taco salad is probs my fave dinner, and this looks like the same thing in breakfast form! Thanks. :)
