Tastes of Spring Break: Fresh Veggie Omelet March 27, 2011

Erin made beautiful Fresh Veggie Omelets one morning.

We ate oatmeal with fruit and walnuts most mornings but my favorite breakfast was the day that Erin made some delicious omelets using fresh cilantro, tomatoes, bell pepper, and a dusting of cheese.

Nutrition Highlights:

A vegetable-packed omelet is a great way to get started on your daily veggie servings and begin your day with some protein. Eggs are a complete protein food (containing all nine essential amino acids) and are a good source of  vitamins B12 and Riboflavin, and minerals Phosphorus and Selenium.

To Lighten Up:

If you are watching your cholesterol or calories you can make these omelets using just egg whites (no yolk) and veggies (without cheese).

Try it At Home:

Fresh Veggie Omelet

Mix egg 2 eggs with milk and pour mixture onto a hot pan with olive or canola oil. Place chopped fresh veggies onto one side of the omelet once it starts to take shape (become less liquid and more solid). Flip the other half over and finish off by heating each side on the pan. Serve hot.

We loved the green bell peppers, tomato slices,chopped onion and cilantro. A dash of Frank’s Red Hot goes nicely with the dish as well.
