Green Eggs & Ham – Farmer’s Market Style

Every Saturday my routine is to meet up with my friends and then we walk to the farmer’s market.  Going to the farmer’s market makes me feel proud to be a part of a healthy, compassionate community that is wellness-conscious. I absolutely love prepping and eating the items I purchase from the market. I swear, it just tastes better and feels better in my body.

As summer is winding down, there is lots of end-of-season produce that fills me with one last taste of summer. For the past few weeks, I am obsessed with this egg scramble that I have been making featuring green peppers, jalapeño peppers, fresh basil, and spinach.  Enjoy!

1 TBS olive oil
2 Eggs
¼ Cup egg whites
½ Cup Green peppers, chopped
1 Slice Canadian bacon, chopped
1-2 Jalapeño peppers, sliced (optional)
1 Handful baby spinach
¼ Cup fresh basil, loosely chopped
1/8 Cup Swiss cheese, shredded

2.    In a mixing bowl, beat together eggs and egg whites.
3.    Add jalapeños, spinach, and basil to skillet. Sauté for 1 minute.
