Getting tired of your breakfast staples of milk and cereal or yogurt? Not sure if you’re consuming your daily recommended servings? Well, let’s kill 2 birds with one stone and incorporate omelettes into everyday meals. They’re quick and easy to make, with flavors to appease any palette.
Next time you’re whipping up an omelette, try your hand at using:
- Vegetables: spinach, lettuce, mushrooms, onions—green, red, or yellow, tomatoes,asparagus
- Fruit: strawberries, pineapples, blueberries, apples, raspberries, melons
- Protein: Bacon, used sparingly, sausage, chicken turkey, salmon, steak, ham, shrimp, Greek yogurt, sour cream
- Cheese: cheddar, Swiss, muenster, brie, goat cheese, American cheese, feta and/or pepper jack
- Spices and extras: garlic, Prosciutto, salsa, oregano, parsley, basil, pesto,dill, capers, cinnamon, brown sugar, sesame oil, etc.
I’m sure there’s additional food items that I haven’t included, but the sky’s the limit when it comes to omelettes. They’re quick and easy to make, while ensuring one’s consuming the recommended servings of fruits, vegetables, protein, dairy and grains.

Also a great way to use leftovers! My omelettes many times have last night’s dinner as the star.
Very clever and resourceful!
