In my quest to eat healthier more filling breakfast meals I’ve settled on a few regular choices. They aren’t always completely healthy, but I think for the most part the following are healthy:
- (afflink) Ezekiel brand bread (I buy it for about $3-4 at a local health food store) toasted with natural peanut butter sprinkled with straight cinnamon (no sugar added)
- egg, ham and cheese English muffin sandwich (the least healthy, but perhaps most filling!)
- egg, veggie, ham, cheese omelet
Because the other day I had made this easy breakfast veggie-salad omelet which I thought turned out AWESOME, I grabbed my phone to take some pictures to tell you about it!
Usually my omelets are simple with some shredded natural cheese, salt, pepper and green onions or green peppers. But, since I started making this salad a more regular feature of my weekly meal plan – it helps me get more veggies into my diet as you’ll see if you read this post – I realized that it was a convenient way to avoid wasting it.
I absolutely love the fact that this veggie salad give me the added benefit of having such a healthy, variety of veggies ready on-hand for any recipe! Not only do I have my veggies ready to consume as a salad, but I have plenty to add to my homemade soups and omelets!
So, in addition to making this veggie-cheese omelet, I’ve added my veggie salad to my homemade chicken and rice soup and homemade chicken noodle soups. Here’s some of the things that go into my weekly veggie salad, I do change it up from time to time:
- green peppers (or red/yellow)
I love a crunchy veggie salad! I don’t even feel the need to add lettuce for myself. My husband and boys are picky about veggies, but they will eat lettuce. Below I’ll show you a bowl of my salad one week; it does have a little lettuce as you’ll see.
This is a great way to add veggies into your diet if you’re having a hard time making it happen. I just dish up a bowl and add a little salad dressing and eat!
