Try this: Scramble, 'all natural mix-ins' for eggs and more

There are three different varieties of Scramble mix-ins: Rancheros, Leafy Greens and Mediterranean.

There are three different varieties of Scramble mix-ins: Rancheros, Leafy Greens and Mediterranean.

I'm not one to pass up freebies, so when I saw a woman handing out samples of a product called Scramble during a recent trip to the gym, I eagerly scooped up a small tub and stuffed it in my bag.

Scramble, made by CleverFoodies, is billed as "all natural mix-ins" to be used in scrambled eggs, an omelet or frittata. What a great idea, especially for those of us who tire of throwing away half an unused bag of spinach and kale that has gone bad — and those of us who don't want to buy a bunch of fresh vegetables, let alone slice and dice them.

This convenience in an 11-ounce cup is available in three varieties: Leafy Greens, which includes spinach, kale, onion and tomato; Mediterranean, which includes kalamata olive, garlic, tomato and basil; and Rancheros, which includes tomato, black bean, sour cream and jalapeno — and, it's worth noting, packs some heat.

Looking for a quick breakfast the morning after a late night, I decided to see how well Scramble delivered. As I whipped up some eggs, I unscrewed the Leafy Greens lid, removed the plastic (there's an overhang, so you won't need to dig out the knife), poured in about half the mixture, then enjoyed a healthful and tasty start to my day. (If you don't use all 11 ounces at once, simply screw the lid back on the BPA-free container and stick it back in the fridge, where it will keep for up to 10 days.)

Uses for Scramble go beyond simply amping up eggs. Rancheros is a natural choice for a quesadilla accompaniment, and the company has plenty of other ideas on its website (cleverfoodies.com), with recipes for Leafy Greens Orzo Salad, Mediterranean Potato Salad and more.

Scramble can be found near the eggs at your local Publix, and it usually retails for $3.79. (It was on sale for $3 when I checked on Wednesday.) Some might consider that a bit pricey, but aren't you worth it?
