We already know that breakfast is important, so let's fuel our systems properly, shall we? Contrary to popular belief, it does NOT take forever to put together a fantastic breakfast at home that will easily fuel you through the morning and beyond. The key here is FRESH. If you're a gardener, it's wonderful to go out just after dawn and pick items you'll be consuming shortly. To me there's nothing better than going plant to table in minutes. Even if you don't or can't garden, you can stock your fridge with real food for real meals.
Make the effort to get into the routine of making breakfast at home instead of the motto of "I'll just grab something on the way"..... Your system as well as your mind will thank you all day long :-)
Color in the morning is nearly as important as flavor and nutrition.
Choose ingredients that will brighten your spirits while fueling your body for the day ahead!
- 1 tbsp lightly salted butter
- 3 large eggs - lightly beaten
- 2-3 scallions
- 3-4 leaves spinach
- 1/8 yellow onion
- 1/4 red, yellow or green bell pepper
- 2-3 baby portobello mushrooms
- 10 grape tomatoes cut in half
Start by cutting up all the ingredients to your liking. I suggest staying away from mincing so that color splashes are more pronounced. Melt the butter and add onions, peppers and mushrooms. Sautee until cooked but still firm. Add spinach and scallions and toss for a few seconds. Add the eggs and spread the veggies so they're distributed evenly in the eggs. Lower heat and cover pan. Cook until eggs are firm.
Slide omelette onto plate, top with halved tomatoes and serve.
Have a nice day!!!
