Today I’m sharing one of my absolute  favorite Paleo hacked recipe’s of all time. Not because it’s grand, or expensive, but because it’s so simple anyone with a microwave and a few ingredients can make it, and in less than 5 minutes!

Here is what you will need for your Paleo Scramble in a Cup:

A handful or more of Spinach. I like to use baby spinach.
2 Eggs
1 Tbsp. Coconut Oil
1 Cup of Chopped Mushrooms. I buy pre-cut because it makes it less messy!
1 strip cooked bacon – crumbled
1/4 Cup Diced Tomatoes
1/4 Cup Diced Chives
Hot Sauce to Taste or Salsa
Pepper to Taste
A microwave-able coffee cup


Take your microwave-able coffee cup and put a light coat of Coconut oil inside. I use a paper towel paper towel paper towel paper towel lightly coat the inside. Doing it this way tends to prevent getting too much oil.

Grab a handful or more of spinach and tear it up a bit. Now add it to your coffee mug. Then add your chopped mushrooms as well. Place in the microwave for roughly 1:30.

Be careful when grabbing your mug out of the microwave it will be hot!

When your 1:30 is up, take out the coffee mug and do a quick stir. Then crack two eggs, or egg whites if you choose into the cup. Add your diced tomatoes and bacon then do one last quick stir, then microwave for two minutes. Take out of the microwave, stir one more time, and put back in the microwave for 1 more minute.

When your last minute is up, pull your mug out of the microwave and add your pepper, salsa, or hot sauce to your liking. Chives are for garnish. That’s it!!!


I hope this recipe was helpful. I know I use it when I’m in a hurry, on the go, or just need a quick energy boost. You can add or exchange many of the ingredients to fit your dietary needs. Not worried about dairy? Add some cheese. Don’t like bacon, add Tofu or even some cooked sausage. The possibilities are endless.
