Why not make an Omelette for Breakfast

So many people tell you that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and I agree, I have to admit that I don’t always follow the advice, but as my mom always use to say “don’t do what I do, do what I say”.

Eating breakfast kick starts your metabolism, therefor also aids in weight loss. It boosts your energy, your body can not run on empty until lunch, breakfast gives your body the nutrients your body craves, when you feed your body, you not only make it feel good, but your concentration improves as well as your mood.

Apart from bacon & eggs or the classic French toast, the omelette sits right up on the top of the breakfast list, but having spoken to a few people, the idea of making an omelette scares them so they stick to bacon & eggs.

I am going to tell you a secret of a great omelette…listen close…there is no secret!  Omelettes are that easy, no tricks, no trade secrets…just 10 minutes of your time!

For the filling, you can use whatever you wish…don’t you just love variety!  Use what is in your fridge…I decided on baby spinach, jalapenos, mushrooms and feta and fresh parsley.  I left it all raw, but it’s all a personal choice.  You can fry up your filling, and spice it as you like…it’s all about YOU!

For the omelette all you will need is

2 large eggs
1 tbsp cold water
salt
pepper
grated cheese (use a white cheese for a healthier option)

Place a medium size pan over a medium heat.  Spray your pan with cook and spray if you want a healthier option, or use a teaspoon of butter and make sure you coat the bottom of the whole pan.

Place all the ingredients in a bowl, and whisk.  You want to get as much air as possible into the eggs. With the air still in the eggs, pour the mixture into the pan.  Cover with a lid, cook until eggs are not runny anymore.  The omelette will puff up nicely.

Place your choice of fillings on top of one side of the eggs and fold over in half, careful not to break.

Top with grated cheese, serve with a little salad and a little balsamic drizzle…enjoy!!
