Fluffy Scrambled Eggs
If you like scrambled eggs, you’ll love this light, fluffy scrambled egg recipe. All you need for this recipe is:
- Non-stick skillet
- Silicone spatula
- 1 Tbsp Butter
- 2 Eggs
Break out your spatula, and let’s get started.
To make these scrambled eggs, all you have to do is whisk your eggs in a bowl vigorously for about a minute. While you’re doing that, melt butter over low heat in a non-stick skillet and wait until it looks like foam.
Once you see the foam, remove the pan from the heat and add your whisked eggs. Continue to whisk the eggs now that they’re in the skillet without touching the whisk down on the bottom of the pan. Return the skillet to the heat and continue to whisk the eggs until the top starts to look like foam. Next, sprinkle your favorite shredded cheese on top and mix it in.
Let your eggs sit for about 5 seconds, then take your silicone spatula from the edge to the middle of the pan, tilting the pan so that uncooked eggs slide where you created an opening with the spatula. Continue to do this until your eggs are mostly cooked. When your eggs are almost finished, remove them from the heat and allow the pan to finish cooking the eggs for you. You can use your spatula to scramble your cooked eggs while adding salt and pepper.
The clean up for this recipe is easy because you used a non-stick skillet. If your skillet has seen better days, make sure to gently wipe the skillet with a sponge to get any additional egg off of it.
These eggs are a great breakfast and can help you make your spouse or loved one breakfast in bed on the days they aren’t feeling well and on special occasions. Grab your favorite breakfast bed tray and surprise them with a simple yet delicious breakfast.
Now that you’ve had your breakfast, it’s time to plan for dinner. A simple shrimp alfredo can bring the fine dining experience of your favorite Italian restaurant to your home for a fraction of the cost. Here’s what you need to cook shrimp alfredo:
- 8 ounces uncooked gluten free fettuccine
- 1 pound shrimp
- 2 tbsp butter
- 3/4 cup heavy/whipping cream
- 1/4 cup chicken broth
- 2 large cloves garlic minced
- 1 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
- Salt & pepper
To make a delicious seafood alfredo for you and your loved ones, add butter, heavy cream, broth, and garlic to a skillet over medium heat. Cook the ingredients together for five minutes.
Next, stir in the parmesan cheese and let it bubble for 30 seconds to one minute.
Add the shrimp and cook until done (usually about 5 minutes). Once your shrimp is cooked, you can season it with salt and pepper before tossing in your pasta.
Because this recipe is so simple, you can try to put your own spin on it by adding more or less cheese, different types of cheese, and maybe chicken for additional protein.

The quest to satisfy your sweet tooth while you’re on a diet can start and end in your very own kitchen. Whether you’re on the keto diet or simply counting calories, you can easily create a dessert that’s guaranteed to taste delicious and satisfy your cravings.
- 1 cup gluten free graham cracker crumbs, finely ground
- ¼ cup coconut flour
- ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 8 Tbsp. softened cream cheese
- ⅓ cup dark chocolate chips
- 1 tsp. coconut oil
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 2 Tbsp. honey
To start baking, line a pan of your choice with parchment paper, leaving some overhang on the sides for easy removal.
Next, mix fine graham cracker crumbs, ¼ cup coconut flour, and ¼ cup cocoa powder. Add tbsp of cream cheese, honey, and vanilla extract. Mix together until it creates a dough. If your mixture is crumbly or dry, add a small amount of almond milk until you reach the right consistency.
Your dough should hold together without being wet and sticky. Once you have your dough, transfer it into the prepared baking pan and use your hands or a spatula to spread it evenly.
In a microwavable bowl, gather chocolate chips and coconut oil. Heat on high at 30-second intervals and stir until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
