Here is an easy way to make an egg breakfast for a lot of people without worrying about burning the eggs, or cooking them unevenly. You can use any combination of tasty veggies for this.

Ingredients

8 eggs
3/4 cup shredded cheese
4 cups chopped veggies – I used onion, red bell pepper, mushrooms, and zucchini
Ghee

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Melt 1 tbsp ghee in a cast-iron pan on medium heat. When melted, add veggies and sauté until soft, about 10 minutes.
Turn off heat and let the pan cool a bit. Mix eggs and cheese together in a bowl. Add egg and cheese mixture to the pan and spread evenly.

Put pan in oven and bake for 15 minutes. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Love Your Gut

Presented by Live Well with Lisa & Shag Valley Farms

Did you know that the word inflammation has its roots in the Latin word inflammare, meaning “to set on fire”?  Inflammation is a reaction designed to protect us after an injury or an infection and is a completely normal process. The injured area becomes red, swollen, hot, and painful.

But there is another type of inflammation that isn’t as obvious and is much more insidious. It’s called chronic or silent inflammation. Chronic inflammation breaks down our bodies and makes us more susceptible to disease. Inflammation forces us to alter our daily lives. Unfortunately, the Standard American Diet is abundant in foods that cause chronic inflammation and compromise the immune system.

Having a healthy gut is the path to optimal wellness.
