Beef and Veggie Breakfast Scramble

This is another really great breakfast if you’re sick of eggs.  I don’t love this recipe as much as I love my other breakfast recipe because I’m not a huge fan of zucchini, but if you like zucchini, then this might be a great option for you.

I also got this recipe from Amy Meyer’s most recent thyroid book, “The Thyroid Connection.”

Beef and Veggie Breakfast Scramble


  • 1 pound ground grass-fed beef
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and diced
  • 1 zucchini, sliced into half-moons
  • 6 asparagus spears, ends removed and spears cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 large avocados, sliced (1/2 an avocado per breakfast)


  • Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat, then add the ground beef and cook until no longer pink.  Season will salt and set aside.
  • In the same skillet, heat the coconut oil.  Add onions and cook for about 3 minutes.  Then add sweet potatoes and cook for another 3 minutes.  Add the zucchini and asparagus and cook all until the veggies are soft.  Season with cinnamon and nutmeg.
  • Combine the veg and cooked beef together.  Serve with avocado!  This makes 4 servings.

    I wouldn’t have thought about putting asparagus and sweet potato together, I think I will have to try this! 🙂
