With a little extra work, you can enjoy a delicious, satisfying, and healthier version of your favorite 3-egg scramble. The secret? Quality ingredients. Since you're not using that many ingredients to begin with, make sure you buy the best products you can afford to buy. The following recipe was made using organic spinach and mushrooms and a couple of shallots from the local farmers' market. Vegetables have so much more flavor when just picked, so make use of the seasonal ingredients your farmers' market is offering. Also, try to use eggs that come from free-ranged or pastured hens. They make a big difference!
