Take a look through the scrambled egg recipes on food52:

You can always add vegetables to your scrambled eggs, and use olive oil instead of butter.

I usually make scrambled eggs using 1 whole egg and 2 whites to reduce the fat and calories. Added veggies, salsa, and/or lowfat cheese are also great.

Use Extra Virgin olive oil, on medium low heat. Don't huge portions. Easy peasy.

Add a film of olive oil to a non-stick pan. After the egg is cooked and transferred to a plate, add salsa to the still-hot pan and immediately pour it over the egg. It heats up instantly. Great with a whole wheat tortilla (heated, too).
