Turkey and Egg White Scramble

who says you can't have turkey for breakfast? ground turkey is a delicious alternative to greasy, fat-nasty bacon. it tastes wonderful when mixed with scrambled eggs and spinach and tomato. now this is the way to start your day!


8 egg whites
1 pound lean ground turkey or tofu
2 cups shredded spinach
1 clove garlic, minced or passed through a garlic press
sea salt and black pepper to taste


1. chop and prepare veggies -- (i added some stoplight bell peppers; i have to get rid of these guys!)

2. cook ground turkey or tofu in a medium skillet until cooked through and lightly browned. drain excess juices from the pan. place turkey in a bowl and set aside.

3. in a small skillet coated with cooking spray, lightly saute the tomatoes, spinach, and garlic. (and bell peppers)

4. in a large skillet combine all ingredients and mix until evenly distributed. season with salt and pepper and serve immediately! (:

i served it with a 1/2 of an orange left over from last night's dinner (:

TIP: if you want totally fat-free turkey, rinse the cooked ground meat in boiling water before adding it to the remaining ingredients!
