So I have been listening to a great podcast that I really do recommend called "Cultivate Simple" at www.cultivatesimple.com by a pretty young couple in Maine. In one episode (I think it may have been "Think before you eat") they mentioned healthier breakfasts and trying to include more protein and vegetables. I have tried this in the past. One thing they mentioned that really got me thinking was that they found themselves less hungry and more energized after eating a less carb heavy breakfast. I have noticed this in the past. It's true!
So this is what I was doing this morning. I made omlets stuffed with grated parmesan cheese, parsley and kale. I used the fresh eggs from my chickens outside. Fired up the cast iron skillet and put it all together. It really didn't take very long to do and I could just throw it into a container and eat it when I got to work. Tasted fine after cooling down still. It was a big hit for my 3 year old, 10 month old and husband! They all ate it happily. SCORE! One point for this mama!!
|Mmmmmmm.....Come on, you know this looks good...even though it's not pretty.|
