Just like pancakes, toast, and cereal, scrambled eggs are one of those dishes that first pop to mind when someone mentions breakfast. They’re one of the easiest breakfast staples to make in just a couple of minutes, but there are steps you can take to improve your recipe and make it healthier.

Oil Choice

Not all oils are created equal, but picking the one that’s generally considered healthy isn’t the only thing you should be looking for. Scrambled eggs are usually prepared at high heat, and that’s why you should opt for extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, or butter, because they’re stable at high temperatures.

Healthy Add-Ins

It’s impossible to make healthy scrambled eggs by adding a bunch of unhealthy ingredients to the mix. If you’re not sure what extra ingredients to use, veggies will add fiber and vitamins to your dish, and they’re always a good idea.

Proper Portions

Eating in moderation is the best way to keep each meal healthy and nutritious, including scrambled eggs. Many people tend to add them to their toasts, sandwiches, and burgers, but if you find scrambled eggs filling enough on their own, there’s no need to use them as an extra ingredient.
