Herb Scramble Recipe for IBS Sufferers

You can enjoy this high protein kick-off to the day with any herbs you find tasty and healthy. For a generally nutritious scramble, try parsley, but it's also delicious with chives, dill, basil, or cilantro. Blanching the herbs for one minute keeps them bright green if that's important to you.
