Muscle Menu: Egg & Black Bean Scramble
Add some more flavor and nutritional bang to your eggs with this breakfast recipe.

By Seth Santoro

There's nothing wrong with whipping up plain scrambled eggs most mornings when you're in a rush to get out the door for work, school or the gym. But taking the extra time when possible to add a few more ingredients can produce a nice change-of-pace egg breakfast. The below scramble features black beans for a big boost in fiber without adding too many carbs. On top of that, onions, bell pepper, spinach and avocado add great natural flavors and a ton of healthy nutrients. If you're not a big breakfast person, this makes for a great lunch or dinner too.
