spicy scrambled eggs with onion, garlic, celery, tomato and avocado that long to be an omelet

I am trying to eat more healthily, but who isn’t really? I have this recipe for an omelet that I got from my acupuncturist. I’ve been going in hope of relieving a muscle spasm that has resulted from a bulging disc in my lower back.

He always lectures me about eating more veggies; taking proper supplements like MSM and vitamin D, iron etc.; and relaxation and exercise. It’s the same prescription for health and well-being you get across the board: eat right, exercise and relax. Life is usually good and in balance if you fulfill these basic requirements.

Anyhow, nutrition plays a big part in making the body work properly. So, I am constantly on a quest to achieve better nutrition. However, cooking omelets is still a challenge, as I can’t ever seem to turn them correctly, so inevitably I switch it up for a scramble. (I think that Julia Child had the same problem when she was starting out.)

I’ve been eating this quite a bit lately with pleasure and happy in the knowledge that I am following “Doctor’s orders.” My muscle spasm is improving. Who knows, maybe it’s the placebo effect. Whatever the reason, this dish is easy to make and I love to spice it up afterwards with Tabasco sauce, cayenne pepper and coriander. My acupuncturist also says to eat as much raw garlic and cayenne pepper as possible too, so I am on board with that, no problem. It probably helps with inflammation or something.

spicy scrambled eggs with onion, garlic, celery, tomato and avocado

2 eggs
¼ onion
1 clove garlic
½ avocado
½ tomato
1 teaspoon oil
some sticks of celery
cayenne, coriander and Tabasco sauce for spice (optional)
salt to taste (optional)

Crack eggs and mix up in a bowl. Chop up tomato, celery, onion and garlic into small pieces and mix in with the eggs. Heat skillet and add oil. Poor egg mixture onto hot skillet. Cook. If you’re brave, try flipping to make an omelet. Otherwise, scramble. Serve with avocado. Salt to taste. Add optional spices. Get out a plate and have a nice meal!

I’m also a convict believer that what we eat makes us more healthier (or less of course), and so I also try to eat vegetables, fruits and whole grains as much as I can.
As for this scrumbled eggs… well I just prefer scrambled to an omelet… so they’re perfect to me 😉

Foodies’ mind think alike. I had some avocado salad with some homemade flaxseed bread tonight. Well, mine was simply with some field salad. I will have to try your recipe with spicy scrambled eggs next time. It looks homey, satisfying, delicious and healthy!

Kudos to you for following doctor’s orders. Hope your back gets better soon! I know how sucky back pain can be. This sounds super easy and healthy, I’m all for that.
