Omelets are an excellent way to incorporate vegetables in your morning meal. I use anything from tomatoes, spinach, mushrooms, green and red peppers, and maybe a tiny bit of cheese if your digestive system can handle it ;).
I typically do 1 full egg and 1 egg white to cut down on the saturated fat from the yolk. I then, chop up all my vegetables and place them in a small pan with a tsp. of olive oil and sauté for a few minutes. I whisk my eggs and the tiny bit of cheese mixture together and add to the veggie mix. Cook on medium to low until most of your egg mixture is not runny and then with a spatula flip over and cook ~1 min and then fold over like an omelet. Voila! Delicious and nutritious breakfast for any morning!
I also add some blueberries, which are an anti-inflammatory food for those of you who have autoimmune diseases and have some silent (internal) inflammation. Blueberries are good for my Hashimoto’s to reduce any internal inflammation. I also added a Food for Life, Gluten Free, english muffin. Why Gluten Free? Products that contain gluten can also have an inflammatory response, not to mention it can prevent your thyroid from producing thyroid hormone, something that I, having Hashimoto’s, wants to avoid as much as possible. Gluten free english muffins are perfect for breakfast and don’t make me feel bloated or weighed down and lethargic.
