This simple, hearty scramble is sure to fill you up in the morning so you don't end up eating the majority of your calories later in the day, when you're less likely to burn them off.

Here's my take on a Southwestern Scramble:

One teaspoon olive oil
5 eggs (or the equivelent in egg whites)
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/3 cup canned black beans
1/3 cup canned corn (used fresh if you have it)
4 cooked, gluten-free sausage links (or patties if that's what you have)
1 tablespoon cilantro to garnish (omit if you want)

Heat a pan on medium heat Beat the eggs with a fork and slowly sprinkle in the chili powder until combined. Pour the egg mixture into the pan. Once the egg has set a bit, put in the beans, corn and sausage. Continue to move around the mixture until the egg is cooked to your liking.

Serve by itself or with some salsa on top.

Coming soon: my obession with mini-kitchen tools brings me a mini-banana bread.
