Breakfast Recipe Review: Hula Scramble

I know I have told you all before but I am just not a breakfast person. Maybe I should rephase this. I am not a healthy eating breakfast person. :) I love breakfast but I want pizza, cupcakes, donuts and anything else unhealthy.

Eating a healthy breakfast has been one of my biggest struggles along this journey. You can ruin your whole day by eating an unhealthy breakfast if you are not careful. I am still struggling with it and trying hard to make it work. I have shared this before but I am willing to spend more money on my breakfast foods just because it is so hard for me to find something that I want to eat.

This recipe is from the Hungry Girl "200 under 200" cookbook. It looked good in the book so I decided to try it. It is really, really good. I am not much of an egg person but I really found it interesting. The pineapple and ham really made the dish. I am actually going to make it for myself for breakfast again today as soon as I am done posting. I can't wait!

I hope you all enjoy this recipes!

Bring a pan sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Add ham and pineapple. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add egg substitute and scramble with the ham and pineapple. Once scramble is a little more then halfway cooked, add cheese pieces. Continue to scramble until cheese has melted and egg substitute is fully cooked. Eat up!

The crazy crabb - I used deli ham from Aldi.

Foodie Girl - I think turkey sausage and apples would be awesome!

Secret Mom Thoughts - I just checked the book and it says 186 calories and 3.5 grams of fat.
