I am new to the whole idea of eating breakfast. I sadly admit that I have always leaned towards the side of skipping it. I did eat the occasional bowl of cereal or bagel, but often it was no more than a fleeting after thought. Then I started my journey towards getting fit and eating healthy and I found out that not only should I eat breakfast, but I should be eating small meals throughout the day. Again, not my forte.
What I have found since I started eating breakfast, however, is that my body can then sense that it is hungry and I don’t go all the way to 4pm without even one meal. My stomach is a smart little organ and it knows how to tell me it needs food. (but only when well hydrated-being thirsty makes you feel hungry too!) I start my day eating right, and somehow it turns into a full day of good eating. I eat at 8:30, 11:30, 1:30, 3:30, 6:30 and the occasional snack later…But I’m not over eating-just getting the right amount to keep full without gorging my stomach full of things I probably shouldn’t have had. Anyways, I digress. My new favorite for breakfast is eggs-I make them a myriad of ways-but the way I’m going to show you today is my absolute favorite! It is a Bacon Vegetable omelet–yes, that savory looking dish below! 🙂
This dish is super easy to make and the cheese is optional-this was my hubby’s omelet-I go no cheese on my own, but for presentation sake…The health benefits can’t be overlooked, either. It is a great source of protien, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals-and it just plain out tastes amazing! 🙂 If you are on the 21 day fix, it is great for that too because it counts as 1 red, 1 green, and 1 tsp. (and 1/2 blue if you add the cheese)
To start, you will want to know what you need, Right? Here is the list of ingredients:
Two Slices Turkey Bacon (cooked)
1/4 cup Green bell pepper diced
1/4 cup Tomato diced
1/4 cup Mushroom diced
1/4 cup Baby Spinach
1/2-1 tsp garlic powder (to taste)
1 tsp Olive Oil
Start by adding the 1 tsp olive oil to a skillet and heat until hot. Add all of the vegetables and the bacon to the oil and saute until done. It will look much like the picture above when ready.
Scramble your eggs and add them to the sauteed veggies cook uncovered for 3-4 minutes at medium heat. Cover for another 4-5 minutes until done. Fold in half and you’re all done! 🙂
I am getting this posted pretty late-so it’s a perfect way to start your day tomorrow or Saturday. It is so, so good! Cook it up, Give it a try, Tell me what you think in the comments below! 🙂
