Breakfast is by far my favourite meal of the day. There are so many breakfast possibilities that are low calorie and delicious, I could eat breakfast for every meal. I am also obsessed with eggs. Not only are they an inexpensive source of protein, they are loaded with nutrients. This cheesy bacon scramble is a great way to start your day off without the carbs.

Truthfully, I have never been much of a meat eater. While I do eat meat, it’s not something I have or crave all day every day. I like to grab my protein from vegan protein powders and eggs, among other things.

Eggs are incredibly nutritious, containing: Vitamin A, Folate, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B12, Vitamin B2, Phosphorus, Selenium and more! I think that eggs have received a bad rap for being high in cholesterol. While that is true, eating foods that are high in cholesterol doesn’t necessarily translate to a higher blood cholesterol. You can check out this study to verify that. (Fact checking, always important in my books!) It is important to note that there are few people – labelled hyper-responders – that cholesterol in eggs can raise levels of cholesterol found in the blood.
This recipe uses ready-made bacon. I buy the Kirkland brand from Costco. Regular bacon can be used. I would recommend cooking it in advance and storing it in the fridge so you can whip up this easy cheesy bacon scramble quickly in the morning. If you’re using regular bacon, be sure to cook the bacon according to the package’s instructions prior to making the scramble.
