This yummy vegetarian and gluten-free omelette is a great thing to wake up to. Seriously, I can't think of much else that I'd rather wake up to. I promise that you won't miss any meat here either, and as an added bonus it's still pretty packed with protein and good-for-you things; spinach, tomato, and even some mushrooms!
Breakfast has been a tricky meal for me lately. Somewhere between work and being a mommy, it's one of the last things that I happen to think about. And often by the time I have the time to make breakfast for myself... it's time for lunch!
I guess that's why I'm more of a brunch person.
That and brunch also comes with a mimosa or bloody mary!
This was actually a pretty quick weekday breakfast. It would be even faster if the mushrooms and potatoes cooked head of time and ready to go as a reheat item.
Grr, I'm still (im)patiently waiting for my own basil to spring up this year!
I paired my omelette with some steamed sweet potatoes that were light seasoned with salt and pepper, and called it a meal. It's simple. It's easy. And it's so sooo good.
Plus, I like to have some carbs in the morning. It helps to get the body going and helps to keep it going for longer!
