Even though it's a bit of a cliche to try to eat healthy come New Year's, it's a good opportunity for a fresh start. And what better place to start than breakfast? I'm a huge fan of eggs and omelettes, but when I was visiting my mom last weekend, I wanted to cook up something that would make both of us feel energized (not put us to sleep). So instead of making the eggs the main event, I put the focus on the vegetables.
My mom had yellow peppers, onions, and tons of spinach on hand, so I sauteed generous handfuls of each in a frying pan with a bit of olive oil, then added eggs beaten with a dash of ground cumin, coriander, and cayenne for a bit of spice. Once the eggs were mostly set, I put the pan in the oven to broil the top. The result was almost more like a vegetable frittata than an omelette, and we had plenty of leftovers for dinner!
Would love to hear your strategies for making breakfast healthier!
