Mix it up for breakfast with 5-ingredient Asian Scramble, done in 10 minutes: Keto and Paleo!
Why an Asian Scramble?
Who hasn't gotten sick of eggs yet? It's inevitable in this diet! But eggs are so nutrient dense and great for so many reasons that we should try to fit them in as much as possible, especially while Baby is being stitched together! So to mix it up a bit and eat eggs in different ways. What I love about this Asian Scramble is the flavor and that the veggies are freebies, so you can add as much as you want! But I get that sometimes you just can't eat another egg! So skip it and just saute the veggies.
Since the veggies are freebies, meaning they will not have an adverse effect on your blood sugar, you can use as many as you want. You can swap them for different veggies, just make sure the ones you use won't have an effect on your blood sugar. (Currently developing a list of freebie veggies and will link it ASAP.) Just keep in mind that swapping veggies will change the flavor, so you may stray away from the Asian profile.
Who wants to chop anything in the morning? Not me! So I used a frozen pepper and onion blend and pre-sliced, fresh mushrooms. If you don't already know, you have to extract the excess water from frozen vegetables before you add them to the dish. If you don't, the dish will be watered down. So to extract the water, heat the skillet to high heat and drop the frozen veggies in when the skillet is hot. DO NOT ADD ANY OIL OR BUTTER! Water and fat react and will pop you! The veggies will sizzle and that just means the water is evaporating. Give them a stir when you see the water is barely visible. You'll know the water has evaporated when you stir it and the wet spots dry up immediately. At this point, reduce the heat and cook them regularly. It's also safe to add any fat at this time.
Keto and Paleo
Use your favorite butter alternative.
Eggs are a nutrient powerhouse! Perhaps most important, they are the #1 source of choline: a nutrient directly linked to significantly aiding brain development in babies! The only food that comes close in choline content is liver.

- If using frozen veggies, heat the skillet on med-high heat. When hot, add the veggies and cook until you see that the water has evaporated and the skillet is dry.
- Immediately add the sausage, and when the sausage is almost done, add the egg.
- If using fresh veggies, heat the skillet on medium heat. When hot, add a little butter or oil and cook the peppers and onions down for about 4 mins, then add the mushrooms and sausage.

The green peppers, mushrooms and maple sausage are the ingredients that give the Asian flavors.
