Sharing is caring!

While scrambled eggs seems basic and likely has no place on a food blog, this recipe is actually important for those with sensitive nervous systems. Eggs contain a healthy amount of B12 (one egg contains 23% DV!) which is important for anxiety sufferers. A deficiency in this vitamin can lead to mood problems, including anxiety and depression. And when your body is constantly stressed, your B12 levels are likely to be low. Additionally, 1 cup of sweet potatoes contains 15% DV of vitamin B6. B6 is responsible for synthesizing neurotransmitters and amino acids. While eating eggs will certainly not cure anxiety or depression, I have noticed a difference in my anxiety levels if I stop eating eggs for lunch.

  • extra light olive oil
  • 1 sweet potato, diced
  • 1 bell pepper, diced
  • 1 white onion, diced
  • 3 eggs
  • Freshly ground black pepper and himalayan pink salt to taste


  1. In a medium skillet, heat the oil over medium heat until it shimmers.

  2. Once the oil is hot, put in the sweet potato, bell pepper, and onion. Saute for 5 minutes or until softened. Transfer cooked vegetables to a plate.

  3. If needed, add a little more olive oil to coat the pan. When it starts to shimmer, crack the eggs into the skillet, one at a time. Scramble them in the pan with the spatula edge.

  4. Let the eggs cook most of the way through, as if you were cooking an omelet, then begin to break it up into chunks. Continue to cook until the eggs are no longer shiny.

  5. After the eggs are finished cooking, use the spatula to transfer the eggs from the skillet to the plate.

  6. If desired, add freshly ground black pepper and himalayan pink salt to taste.

Recipe Notes

  • I like to dice the sweet potato, bell pepper, and onion at the start of the week so that it is ready to go. I will oftentimes sauté all of the vegetables as well, so that they only need to be reheated after cooking the eggs.
  • If you are able to have dairy, you can put a slice of cheese down on the plate, and then spoon the egg mixture on top. Or, you can add shredded cheese to the top.

  • I’m a little confused by the mention of cheese within instruction no5 but no mention of any within the ingredients or, for that matter, elsewhere within the instructions.

    • Hi! Initially I had the cheese in the ingredients list, but then made the scrambled eggs dairy-free. The mention of cheese in step #5 was supposed to be removed when I redid the recipe :). I did however move that part to the notes section, for those who can eat/want to eat a little bit of dairy with their eggs. Sorry for the confusion!
