We've been told time and time again that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Some lucky people have the time to hear this saying with the ears of devout health fanatics, but there are those of us who only have time to consider it another precautionary nutritionist's tale that can be made up with other healthy practices. Fortunately, this super scrambled egg recipe is quick, easy, delicious and perfect for anyone looking to add it to their healthy breakfast recipe repertoire or for those of you who finally find the time to make a healthy breakfast and are looking for where to start.

This scrambled egg recipe gives you all you need for a healthy breakfast. There are four main ingredients: eggs, kale, peppers, and onions. Eggs are rich in protein, vitamins, and minerals like zinc and iron. Kale is the superfood, providing your body with all kinds of ingredients that protect against cancer and encourage healthy bodily functions. Peppers are full of antioxidants, vitamin C, and folate (needed for cell division and creation of DNA). Onions are also a superfood because they help all kinds of functions of the body, including hair growth, digestion, and immunity. Pair these scrambled eggs with some whole wheat toast to get your daily serving of grains and the complete healthy breakfast experience.

Note: You'll also need some salt, pepper, butter, and olive oil to complete the seasoning and cooking process.

Step 1: Set up your pan

The first step in making these eggs is to set up your pan. All you need is a small pan, just big enough to scramble eggs. Turn your burner on to a medium heat. Take a pad of butter and put it in your pan to melt. This will give your eggs great flavor and prevent them from sticking to the pan. If you do not have butter, cooking spray can also be used.

#SpoonTip: always make sure to cook your scrambled eggs on medium-low heat. If you cook them on high heat, the eggs will dry out and lose their ideal light, fluffy texture.

Step 2: Chop your vegetables

Next thing to do is chop your vegetables. Cut the peppers and onions into small chunks, then add them to your pan. There's no specific amount you should chop; add as much or as little as you like – although the more veggies the more flavor and the healthier it becomes.

Step 3: Cook your veggies

Once your veggies are chopped, add them to your pan. Give them an occasional stir with a spatula. Cook them until the onions are slightly brown and the peppers have a slight char on them.

Step 4: Prepare the kale

Kayla White

Preparing the kale for this recipe takes an extra step than our peppers and onions. First, you'll need to tear the kale into small pieces and put them in a small bowl. I usually tear up about one leaf of kale for this recipe, but you can do more or less depending on your preference. Don't worry if one leaf seems like a lot of kale – it'll cook down in the pan.

Next, take a little bit of olive oil and drizzle it over the kale. This should not be a lot of oil. Just two or three light drizzles over the top of the kale will do. Adding too much oil will make the eggs greasy and heavy, and we want them to be light and fluffy. Once you've drizzled the oil on, give the kale a quick toss with your hand to distribute the oil evenly over the pieces. The olive oil will give the veggies extra flavor and also act as extra non-sticking agent to the pan, as the butter will most likely be used up cooking the peppers and onions.

Finally, garnish the kale with some salt and pepper for added flavor that will elevate the flavor of the eggs in the end.

Step 5: Cook kale and add eggs

Now that the kale is prepped, add it to the pan. Cook it until it is cooked down (it will have a sort of wilted appearance) then add 2 eggs to the pan. I cracked them into the pan, but if you want to scramble them in a bowl beforehand that works just as well.

As soon as your eggs are in the pan, take your spatula and start scrambling. The more you scramble, the more air you incorporate into your eggs and the fluffier they will be, so scramble until they are done.

Everyone has a preference for how their eggs are cooked, but I usually cook mine until most of their shine is gone.

Step 6: Serve and enjoy!

Once the eggs are cooked, take them out of the pan and enjoy. This is a base recipe for my moderation of scrambled eggs, but you can definitely mix it up with other vegetables or add toppings like cheese or my personal favorite for eggs, hot sauce.

This super scrambled eggs recipe is perfect for anyone, no matter if you're a breakfast loving champ who is looking for more options or someone who maybe never has time to make a healthy breakfast and is looking for a place to start. These eggs are healthy, delicious, and easy to prepare. They will be the first thing you go to when making that healthy choice.
