Scrambled Eggs & Smoked Salmon

Recipe supplied by Kimberly Roberto, co-author of Maximized Living Nutrition Plans

This is a great morning breakfast that is super-quick to make but it is quite elegant.  You’ll feel as if you are having breakfast at a 5 star hotel.

Not a fan of salmon? Try smoked salmon. It has a smoky, bacon-y flavor. One other tip: Make sure you get wild caught, Alaskan salmon.  Most grocery stores carry this item so it is easy to find.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons organic sour cream, organic full fat plain yogurt, or organic heavy cream
