Healthy Recipe – Gluten Free -Dairy Free – Soy Free – Scrambled Eggs
For the past couple of weeks I have been experimenting with a healthy recipe for scrambled eggs. I tweak it the recipe just a bit each time. Now I realize that there isn’t much of a “recipe” with scrambled eggs but I am rather limited when trying to stay on our healthy diet plan.
Milk and bacon were always favorite additions to scrambled eggs. Since we now have eliminated not only dairy, soy and gluten, we have also eliminated corn, tomatoes, food colorings, monosodium glutamate, nitrites, sulfites, sugar and much more.
Even turkey bacon is out – at least the Oscar Mayer turkey bacon I have sitting in my freezer. The primary ingredients are: turkey, water, salt, and sugar. The “other ingredients”: sodium lactate, canola oil, sodium diacetate, sodium phosphates, smoke flavor, sodium ascorbate, autolyzed yeast extract, sodium nitrite, dextrose, and soy lecithin. The “other ingredients”, although <2%, are death for a super sensitive person.
NOTE: Next post, what the <2% did to a super sensitive person…
There may be a more natural and healthier turkey bacon. If you know of one please comment below. I will research another time. Right now I am just trying to get into a healthy diet menu roadmap with the basics.
Back to the scrambled eggs. Here is what I did this morning that was such a hit:
Sauteed: onions, garlic and chicken sausage (I use a particular brand of healthy chicken sausage .)
Eggs mixture: eggs, coconut milk, salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder.
When onion, garlic, and sausage was ready, I added the eggs mixed up everything and let it sit and cook for awhile. When the bottom was firm, I then turned it over in sections.
I think it was the coconut milk that made the eggs fluffier.
Unless someone has another idea, I will just repeat this for the next month and try to spend more time finding new recipes for dinner.
PS I am looking for some new things to do with ground turkey. I looked for ground turkey and beans recipes but they all have either ketchup or barbecue sauce.
