Quick and Healthy: Mega-Morning Mexican Omelet

Hey gang!  Today I wanted to share with you all my go-to breakfast. Mornings can be a rough time for people to eat well.  Veggies, especially, seem difficult for people to get in early in the day, and many argue that it is simply “easier” to pour a bowl of cereal than to spend some time over the stove.  However, with a little practice and a healthy routine, you can easily make a healthy, veggie-packed breakfast in under 10 minutes that will satisfy your hunger well past lunch-time.  I make this omelet (or some variation of it) almost every weekday.  I’ts delicious, has plenty of protein and healthy fats, and can easily be made with whatever veggies you have lying around.

My morning omelet with some extra jalapeño peppers!

What You’ll Need:

  • 4 eggs (Omega-3 enriched, if possible) [Note: This is a caveman-sized serving.  3 eggs will be plenty for most people.]
  • 1 avocado (sliced into cubes)
  • Coconut oil for the pan
  • Your selection of favorite veggies. (I use a handful of spinach, an onion, and a small pack of mushrooms.)
  • Salsa (as you like)

Directions:

  1. First, dice up your veggies (onions/mushrooms). Throw them in a skillet with a spoonful of coconut oil, and set on medium-low heat.  Stir occasionally.
  2. While the onions/mushrooms are cooking, chop up a handful of spinach (leaves only) and set aside for later use.
  3. Next, take your avocado, and slice it in half length-wise. Use a spoon to remove the pit, then make small criss-cross incisions in the meat of the avocado.  Finally, use the spoon to scoop that healthy goodness out on to a plate.
  4. Once the onions are starting to look translucent, toss the spinach into the pan.  It will cook/wilt fast – only takes about 30 seconds.
  5. Crack your eggs and add them in. Then use a spatula to mix it all up.  Keep an eye on it, mixing it every minute or so to make sure it doesn’t burn/stick to the bottom of the pan.
  6. Once the eggs look pretty dry, but NOT burnt, pour it all out onto the plate with the avocado.
  7. Top it off with some of your favorite salsa, and dig in!

Other options: This could also be good with grilled peppers, last night’s stir fry (like in the picture below, or even bacon.  If you used bacon, however, I might forgo the salsa for some sea salt and freshed cracked pepper.

Breakfast doesn’t have to be time-consuming in order to get yummy, healthy food into your tank to fuel your activities for the day.  Just make it work with what you’ve got, and soon you’ll be stumbling out of bed and cooking a perfect omelet with your eyes closed in no time!

What are your favorite breakfast foods?  How much time do you spend on breakfast in the morning?

Stay healthy everybody.
