Ground Beef Scramble

Part of my fledgling lifestyle is eating better. I'm adapting a Primal/Paleo (I'm navigating my way through the things I need and the things I don't need from each one) and one thing I see over and over in my research is a big-ass breakfast.

The point being that if you eat enough protein and good fat in your big-ass breakfast you will be satiated for a long time during your day and will not even think about snacking thereby foregoing any bad decisions.

It's true. When I do eat one of my big-ass breakfasts I don't think about eating for the better part of the remainder of the day. If I'm at home I don't find myself rummaging around in the cupboards looking for something naughty.

It's another tool to help me in this fat-fight. Protein and fat are going to make be slim. I believe this.

This is what I made this morning.
It's one of my favorite things to eat for breakfast.

I know lots of us (me included) think we cannot eat a big breakfast. "I'm not hungry when I get up, I'm not in the mood for something so big, I am a whiner . . ." Oh wait, that last one was only me. I am, as we all know, the best whiner. :)

To make this I start with ground beef from a grass-fed source. Pup and I bought 1/4 of a cow a bit ago and we've been enjoying it so so much. The hamburger is especially nummy.

To the ground beef I add a couple of eggs, some Parmigiano-Reggiano, sea salt, pepper, and I added some chopped green onions on this go.
Mix it all until ingredients are integrated.
Throw it in a pan with foaming butter and cook about 3 minutes each side on medium-high heat.
I'd show a photo of my plate after I finished eating, but it's kinda embarrassing to let everyone see exactly how much I lick the plates when I'm finished.

Yep, I really am that classy.

You can make it even leaner by using just egg whites. That's what I've been doing this past week when I make my turkey sausage burgers. The yolk is a whole lotta fat.

I love a big breakfast. I don't eat late at night so I need something to charge my batteries....
