Chia Egg Scramble
Add chia to your morning eggs for an extra nutritional boost. When cooked, chia seeds match the texture of eggs so closely that you’ll hardly notice that they’re there! Hearty sausage, squash, and greens fill this scramble to provide a one-pan meal that will leave you satisfied and energized for the day ahead.
- 4 eggs
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tbsp filtered water

Turn the heat to medium low and add whisked egg mixture. Turning mixture together continuously with a spatula, cook until eggs are just set. Season with salt & pepper to taste. Remove from heat and serve with garnishes, as desired.
