It may be time for dinner, but go ahead and enjoy a breakfast meal if you like. Before reaching for a big bowl of sugary cereal though (which by the way is never a good option for ANY meal), try a balanced breakfast of protein, high quality carbohydrate, fats and vegetables.

The fancy breakfast meal shown here is easy to prepare. The omelet has protein rich eggs, cheese and a bit of sausage with a vegetable medley of chopped kale, peppers and onions. A few slices of ripe tomato on the side add color (and lots of nutrition!). The crepes are filled with vanilla Greek yogurt and fresh blueberries.


Basic Omelet

Serves three (This recipe may easily be halved)

Essential Ingredients

  • 6 eggs

  • 1 tablespoon milk

  • Seasonings as desired (Cajun seasoning blend, salt and pepper, sodium – free herb blend, etc.)

  • 1 tablespoon of real butter or oil (olive oil, avocado oil, canola oil, etc.)

Optional Ingredients: Customize your omelet by adding one or more of the following….or NOT

  • 2 cups of any chopped / thinly sliced vegetables (mushrooms, peppers, kale, onions, spinach, broccoli, etc.), sautéed until done but not over-cooked

  • ½ cup of any type of shredded cheese OR 2 to 3 slices of cheese

  • Crumbled or chopped meat (sausage, bacon, chicken, etc.)

Instructions

  1. Break eggs into a mixing bowl and beat with a fork or whisk until all yolk is blended.

  2. Add the milk and seasonings. Mix very well.

  3. Melt butter or heat oil in skillet over medium low heat.

  4. Add egg mixture and with a wide spatula, gently lift one area, allowing the uncooked egg to flow onto the skillet.

  5. Repeat this several times as needed until the egg is almost done but still a bit runny in the center.

  6. Place any additional ingredients (meats, cheeses, vegetables) over the top of the egg, as it finishes cooking.
