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. 

Ingredients
- 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 

Directions
- 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!

  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
