This breakfast has everything you need to start the day on a healthy foot and nourish your gut health.

To manage blood sugar and hormones, it’s good to start with a healthy dose of protein and fat.

To help the gut, you want fiber, phytonutrients, and live-active cultures.

This recipe has it all!

Plus it’s super simple and quick, making it great for an everyday breakfast. I haven’t made a pop-tart in a million years, but my guess it takes the same amount of time to toast that as to make this deliciously nutrition breakfast.

Mixed super greens, pastured eggs, hummus and raw fermented kraut in a gray ceramic coated pan becoming a scramble, stirred with a wooden spoon.

The Ingredients

  • Pasture-raised Eggs: Great source of protein and choline, a super important nutrient for female health
  • Hummus: Make sure to get a kind with olive oil so that you get the healthy fats (and not inflammatory seed oils – the brand I typically use is Hope. The hummus, in addition to adding protein and fiber, is a great way to make creamy eggs without dairy which can be inflammatory to many people.
  • Greens: Use whatever greens you have on hand. I often use swiss chard, spinach, or the Organic Girl’s super greens mix.
  • EVOO: Extra virgin olive oil is a great oil high in omega 3s (and typical Americans need to up their omega 3 to 6 ratios). EVOO is good for low-heat cooking like this scramble.
  • Kraut: Make sure it’s raw and fermented. I typically use WildBrine which you can now find at Costco! Kraut in the unrefrigerated section is usually dead and has its tang from vinegar. Raw kraut goes through lacto-fermentation and is going to have a probiotic-like effect on your gut. Read more about prebiotics, probiotics, and live-cultured foods here.

How to make it

Sautee greens

First, you’ll saute the greens in a little olive oil until they are slightly wilted. Do this on medium-high heat using a ceramic-coated pan.

Mix in Eggs and Hummus

Turn the heat down to medium-low low and add the eggs and hummus. Add a few grinds of salt and pepper if desired. You want to make sure the hummus blends in really well with the eggs. This makes them super creamy without the dairy.

Stir in Kraut and Serve

Just before the eggs are done, stir in the kraut so it is evenly combined and warm.

The kraut is alive and raw, so we get certain benefits by leaving it less cooked, hence adding it at the end. If it ends up cooking the whole time with the eggs, it isn’t the end of the world, because it has benefits even when cooked, but I try to reduce the heat for the kraut in this scramble.
