Hi friends! Happy hump day!
Today, I’m linking up with Peas and Crayons for a What I Ate Wednesday post. I wanted to share my most recent breakfast obsession: omelets.
I attribute this to a recent 4-day weekend when I had plenty of time to make breakfast in the morning.
I use the same base recipe to make all of my omelets: 1 whole egg, 3 egg whites, 1/8 C milk, salt and pepper to taste. Beat all ingredients together. You’ll see here that I use 1 whole egg. I usually use 1-2 whole eggs in all of my egg breakfasts because I like the added nutrients. Then I will use egg whites for the rest- more protein but keeps the calories in check.
From there, the omelet world is my oyster! These guys are a great way to sneak in some veggies (I usually use 1 to 1.5 C) and cheese.
Let’s break down why I think omelets are awesome…
Eggs = cheap
Lean breakfast (high protein without being loaded with fat and calories)
Easy and quick to make
You don’t have to dirty a ton of dishes <—the most important thing, right?
Lots of room for customization
The other day I stuffed my omelet (ha, that kind of sounds dirty) with 1 cup of spinach and 1/4 c shredded cheese. Cheese is awesome, yo.
Do you like omelets? If so, what are your favorite combos?
