I’ve got to be honest. I’ve been skipping out on breakfast for a while now. With school starting back up after the winter break and a terrible head cold running rampant through the house… There just hasn’t been enough time in the day to fuss with breakfast. And the whole point of breakfast is just that… to break-the-fast of the night of sleeping.
They don’t say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day for no reason. It’s there to start your day off and get you in gear for the rest of the day. Trust me when I say that being ‘hangry’ is a real thing. Finally, I made plans this week to stick to my guns and be SURE that I started my day off right with actually eating breakfast again.
To lighten this omelette up I decided to make it vegetarian. Yep! It’s true. I can have breakfast without bacon. Amazing. I know. Instead, I loaded this omelette up with plenty of veggies. Eggs, spinach, and mushrooms galore! I also subbed in some egg whites instead of another whole large egg. Other than that, it’s some reduced fat milk and cheese that make this baby shine.
This is good stuff. It’s real. Good. Stuff. Trust me when I say that you won’t regret taking the few minutes out of your morning to whip up this Skinny Mushroom & Asparagus Omelette. It’s low-carb, gluten-free, vegetarian, and made with only about 5 main ingredients.
If you’re looking to say even more time in the morning, you might be able to get away with make this omelette ahead of time as a re-heat and eat bite for breakfast.
I like to serve mine with some fresh fruit!
