The Incredible Edible Egg!
Well that is the incredible, edible, egg omelette loaded with veggies!
This is another great way to start your day. I know how hard it can be for people to get their daily serving of vegetables in everyday and this is such an easy way to get them in. It's even an easy way to sneak them in for people who are not really fans of veggies.
I usually do two whole eggs and 1 egg white. You need some of that good fat in the yolk so I don't usually like to do egg whites only. I personally like to saute my veggies first so they're a little more tasty. 1tbsp olive oil, 1 clove of garlic and some chopped onions will really boost the flavor without fat or calories. Some black pepper and herbs sprinkled on those and then you add in your chopped veggies. You can do anything from peppers to broccoli to spinach! I always try to get as many greens in as possible as they're nice and fibrous and a great way to get your digestive system moving in the morning. I don't recommend cheese unless your at home and can get yourself some low fat feta, goat or even cheddar. When you eat out, it's usually guaranteed that they will use full fat cheese and they will put way too much on completely negating the fact that you're trying to have something healthy. So I only recommend cheese if you're in control of it. Then after cooking the omelette, I like to serve it with some salsa or even marinara sauce works. Its a nice tasty accompaniment to the eggs and again without any negative health affects. And tomatoes are great for you as well because of the lycopene so definitely good to add on top. I really don't believe that healthy food can't be tasty, it's just about using the right seasonings and accompaniments to make it enjoyable.
I love knowing that the first thing I put in my body has been tasty AND healthy and it really helps to get two servings of veggies in before you've even left the house. You can even precut the vegetables the night before to make it quick and easy for you in the morning.
There's always a way to be healthy, you just have to make the choice every time you take a bite.
