Fitness Friday: Scrambled Eggs and Orange Paprika for Breakfast

As much as fitness is important to us, so is our nutrition. You cannot have one without the other, it's a bit of a yin and yang, Sheldon and Penny situation.

I love discovering delicious and healthy recipes that will vary up my otherwise boring food routine. This may not blow your minds, but this following breakfast is one of my favourites. It's quick, easy and tasty!

So I present to you my Scrambled Eggs and Orange Paprika breakfast á la Maria!


1 tbsp oil (coconut, or anything that is available to you)
2 eggs (medium or large sized)
1/2 chopped orange pepper (a red one is just as delicious)
a pinch of salt
a pinch of black pepper
a pinch of paprika


In a bowl, whisk the eggs with a fork. Add the salt and pepper. Put chosen oil in pan and heat up to medium. Add in chopped pepper and cook it until it starts to get fragrant and you get a bit of colour to it. Lower heat to low and add in whisked eggs. Cook for perfection. 
Serve on plate and sprinkle paprika over the top for more tasty goodness.

I like to eat this with a side of chopped tomatoes and cucumber. I tend to put a few drops of lemon juice over them and sprinkle on some more black pepper.

As I am slightly gluten intolerant, I try and stay away from bread, but I would highly recommend this with a nice piece of wholemeal and grain toast smeared with avocado.


 If you decide to give this a go, let me know what you think of it! What are your favourite breakfast meals?


  1. this looks so healthy and delicious, definitely giving it a try; my fave breakfast meal is a nice helping of waffles or pancakes if I have time to make them :)
