It is overcast out and it reminds me of Washington. I think it might even be sprinkling out. Hopefully it will clear up soon because I am going to go take some pictures this afternoon.
Kael woke up at 5am this morning. Sam kept him up until 10:30pm last night. Before I had kids 5am seemed ridiculously early…now it is like sleeping in! Kael and I went to Walmart and stopped by the donut store. I recently learned that my wonderful husband Sam loves maple bars. I had no idea. So I bought some and when he woke up this morning he got maple bars and a nice cup of home brewed Seattle’s Best coffee. Perfect for an early fall overcast morning. What a delightful way to start the day.
I made myself something a little bit healthier and I will share this super easy, highly nutritious treat. I made a Vegetarian Omelet. It was delicious. I ate it and drank my cup of coffee and it was a perfect little morning.
What you will need:
2 whole eggs whisked together with 2 additional egg whites
1 teaspoon butter, I used a yogurt based butter that is a lot lighter in calories
1 tablespoon feta
½ zucchini sliced thin
¼ cup sliced mushrooms
I used two frying pans so I could do it all at once. Put ½ teaspoon of butter in each frying pan to coat. Add ¼ cup water to one pan and place each on medium heat. Place your zucchini and mushrooms in the pan with the water. Add steak seasoning to your taste preference. And let them get lightly cooked through.
In your other pan pour your lightly whisked eggs and add a little bit more steak seasoning. Once I can see the bottom of the eggs getting cooked I peel up the omelet and let the uncooked egg pour underneath it. I keep lifting up the edges and doing this. I fold it over itself and make sure it is all cooked.
Place your eggs on a plate, top with your lightly steamed veggies, sprinkle with feta and serve with tomato slices lightly salted. YUM!!!
Now I get to go play with toddlers and drink another cup of my ‘go juice’. Have a wonderful day!!!
