Easy Veggies: Roasted Zucchini and Yellow Squash

Throughout this little Paleo journey I’ve embarked upon, I’ve realized just how important it is to spruce up them veggies. The “Paleo Plate” guide I’m going off of says that each meal should comprise of 2/3 veggies, but I’m used to focusing on other parts of the meal and considering veggies just a “side” item! They’re the main event!

MORE VEGGIES!!!!

FOR THE WIN!!!!!!!

This recipe is pretty easy, except for the slicing (who wants to chop or slice? not this lazy lady). It’s based off this recipe from the Food Network.

That looked pretty bland to me, so I sprinkled on some more spices. Sprinkle more of the spices over the zucchini and squash mixture, to taste.

Ingredients

approx. 1 tablespoon olive oil
4 eggs
1/4 cup coconut milk
1/2 an avocado, diced
approx. 1 ounce ham, diced

Directions

1) Coat bottom of a non-stick pan with olive oil.

2) In a separate bowl, whisk together 4 eggs with 1/4 cup coconut milk. Pour into pan, over medium-high heat.

3) Add 1/2 an avocado, diced. (Slightly firm avocados will be fine in this recipe.) Add ham.

4) When the eggs are bubbly, flip the eggs over. Bubbly eggs are fluffy eggs. πŸ™‚ Don’t worry about flipping all the eggs in one piece, these are supposed to be scrambled eggs!

5) When the eggs are cooked through, put onto a small plate and enjoy. πŸ™‚
