Ham, Vegetable and Egg Scramble

This holiday season I just can’t seem to pull things together. I’ve become the ultimate procrastinator.

I have yet to finalize our dinner menu, and finally finished shopping. That’s not to say that I’ve wrapped a single gift.

Since procrastination isn’t typically part of my character, I’m going to attribute my lack of holiday focus to the chaos going on at work, due to a particularly large project.

Another victim of my lack of focus is Kretschmer.

This company was kind enough to send me a bottle of wheat germ several weeks ago, hoping that I would review it in a timely manner and develop a recipe for them.

Wheat germ isn’t an ingredient I’ve worked with, so I had some research to do first. This added task didn’t help my motivation to get cooking.

Little did I know what I was missing out on!

According to Discovery Fit & Health, wheat germ is a natural fat fighting food. The embryo of the wheat kernel, wheat germ provides a boost of nutrients often lost during weight loss when people cut back on saturated fats.

You’ll add all important iron, zinc and folic acid back into your diet, not to mention tummy filling fiber.

Once I had wheat germ figured out, I knew exactly what I planned to do with it. I needed a quick and healthy meal to put on the table so I could finish the rest of my neglected holiday projects.

This was the best scrambled egg recipe.  I love colorful vegetables, so we packed the pan with ham, spinach and zucchini. Then we topped the dish with creamy cheddar cheese and nutty tasting wheat germ.

This was the energy boost we needed to help us get through present wrapping!

    Wheat germ has always been low on my priority list — in fact I don’t believe I’ve ever used it in the kitchen. But I’m intrigued by this recipe. I know the benefits of wheat germ, and this seems like a terrific — and totally natural — way to use it. (Natural in that so many “healthy” recipes just aren’t the way most people cook.) Good stuff! Thanks.

      Wheat germ is new to me too, but I have to say I love the nuttiness it adds. I can totally see it added to baked goods. I’m wishing you and your family a wonderful holiday. :)

    I’ve been loving all these extra lean and quick dishes you’ve been featuring lately and I definitely feel you on lacking motivation. Great scramble and excellent colors in the dish. Never tried wheat germ (been on a chia kick) but I’d love to give it a shot!

      I usually do flaxmeal, but I’ve tried chia seeds and really like them. Especially in my smoothies. Like you, I’ve not used wheat germ before, but I like the nutty flavor.
