Everything about this meal makes me want to run in the other direction. It couldn’t be less me. But for some reason, one day I made it. And then I made it 5 more days in a row.

I’m typically a carbs-for-breakfast girl: oatmeal, pancakes, etc. But no matter how many pounds of nut butter you stir into a bowl of oats, it just doesn’t keep you full for very long. Not me anyways.

I still have my morning carb fest, but then after my workout I’ll make a second, protein-packed breakfast to refuel and keep me going until lunch.

Surprisingly enough, it takes hardly any time to whip together.


5 Minute Protein-Packed Breakfast Skillet

egg sausage scramble

by with a Side of Sneakers


  • 1-2 eggs
  • 1 apple chicken sausage
  • 1 handful greens {I used spinach & arugula}
  • 1/4 avocado, sliced {optional}
  • black pepper, to taste


Heat pan or skillet over medium heat.

Add sausage & greens to hot pan and cook for ~1 minute.

Add egg{s} to pan and heat until whites are cooked through. Flip egg over sausage and greens. I like to keep the yolk slightly runny.

Season with black pepper and top with sliced avocado.
