Salad Egg Scramble


This is a rather unusual dish. I mean, scrambled eggs on your salad?  Believe me, though - it's good! So simple, too. :)

Ok, to make - you will need:

2 eggs (or 1 egg, 1 egg white)
diced red onion (1-2 tablespoons) 
1 teaspoon coconut oil
mixed greens
fresh salsa
Ranch dressing

That's it! Just fry up the diced onion in the coconut oil before adding the eggs to your pan. Toss onto your salad plate, garnish with a little fresh salsa and use Ranch for your dressing.


The finished product!

The eggs added to the salad today were inspired by my attempts to get in some more protein. I'm not really a meat eater so if I'm not careful my diet can consists of just salads and carbs. he-he! Workin' on that. :p


Organic kale for the green smoothie today! Kale is one of those things that, if possible, you want to eat organic because it's subjected to high levels of pesticides. {Click here to learn more}

Just over a 3.5 mile run this morning. :) It was a slower run for me, but I was okay with that because my right leg was not happy with this run and felt more like a muscle strain. Did you workout today? If so, what did you do? 


I got outside for a few minutes mid-day. It's always a refreshing experience to look up at the sky! Wouldn't you say? :) 


My snack for the day. :p {Hopeless apple lover . . .} 

How's your wk coming so far? 

Tell me, have you ever eaten scrambled eggs on top of salad? 

Did anyone watch the inauguration? :)

hmm eggs on a salad- not so sure on that one tehe. But I'll give it a shot! I have eggs as often as I can for breakfast and it would be good to fit in some greens too!

I watched the inauguration- it was awesome! Loved when Barack and Michelle were taking a kissing photo together! soo cute

That looks amazing! I love eggs on salad but have never tried scrambling them for salad. Normally I boil or poach them. Can't wait to try it!
