Yesterday after I worked out, I had a beautiful bowl of oatmeal with blueberries, walnuts and a smidge of dried fruit. It was delicious, but I neglected to eat some protein with all those carbs and the result was that I was famished the rest of day. I just couldn't get full, and I blame it on my breakfast! Whenever I eat a balanced breakfast, including healthy fat, protein and carb, I am satisfied for many hours! Anyway, it reminded me that my favorite breakfast also happens to be the things that keeps me satisfied the longest! Here it is!
1/2 teaspoon olive oil
1 cup mixed vegetables (green and red pepper are my favs.)
1 cup spinach
1 tbsp red onion chopped
2 oz Boars head blazing buffalo chicken breast (or protein of choice)
1 Tbsp feta cheese (my fav is tomato & basil feta)
1/3 cup eggbeaters
tangerine or 1 cup berries
In small frying pan, heat olive oil and saute the vegetables (spinach, peppers , onion) to desired doneness, about 3 min on med.
Add broken up chicken and stir to heat. Remove from pan and set aside.
Spray pan with cooking spray. Add eggbeaters and swirl until it fills the pan and starts to move up on the sides slightly..you want to make it as large a circle as possible! When the eggs are cooked enough to slide back and forth in the pan, flip the omlette to cook the other side. Immediately add all the filling you cooked to one side of the omlette, plus the avocado and feta. With a spatula, fold the empty side onto the full side and serve!
I like to sprinkle Texas Pete on my omelettes for some pow!

You can add a nice piece of whole grain toast or some oatmeal to round off your carbs if you like! My favorite toast is Ezekiel Sesame Sprouted Grain Bread. You can find it in the freezer section of your grocer.
I also have an almond milk latte each morning to really make me feel like I'm getting the rich treatment!
