Omelette and Oatmeal

Good morning everyone! Today I don’t have to work, so I’m going to take my time making a breakfast I enjoy. Omelettes are a favorite of mine, as is oatmeal. Plus, both are incredibly easy and cost effective to make. I’m sure everyone has their own recipes for omelettes and oatmeal, but here’s mine. Hope you enjoy!

Ingredients for Omelette

  • 1/4 onion*
  • 1/4 bell pepper*
  • 1/2 jalepeno
  • 2 handfuls spinach*
  • 2 eggs
  • salt and pepper*

Ingredients for Oatmeal

  • 1/4 c rolled oats
  • 1/2 water
  • pinch salt*
  • handful frozen blueberries*
  • chia seeds*
  • flax seeds*
  • agave or preferred sweetener*
  • almond milk*
  • cinnamon*
  • walnuts or any other nuts*
  • tahini or nut butter*

Recipe for Omelette

Heat a pan over medium heat with a little oil. Slice your onion, bell pepper, and jalepeno before adding your onion and jalepeno to the pan. Wait around 3-5 minutes before adding your bell pepper. (I used some leftover sauted onion/bell pepper/garlic/jalepeno and was able to skip this cooking process.)

Once your veggies are cooked, add the spinach and cook for about a minute, allowing it to wilt. Whisk your eggs together and add to the pan after the spinach has wilted. Cook the omelette for about 3 minutes on the first side and 1 minute on the other side as most of the egg will have cooked through from cooking the first side longer. Your omelette is ready! Definitely add some cheese and/or hot sauce to this if you like.

Recipe for Oatmeal

Take a small pot and put it over medium/high heat. Place your oats, water, and the just a little bit of salt in the pot. Let it cook for around 5 minutes, and then it will be done.

Everything else is a topping; so add everything to a bowl and mix together. If you choose to add the tahini or a nut butter, this will help your oatmeal to be extremely creamy and rich.

Yummy!

*So much of this is optional. You can make this “bare bones” with just the eggs, oats, and water if that’s what you have, or you can use even more vegetables in the omelette and more toppings in the oatmeal. It is all up to you and your preferences. Cherry tomatoes, arugula, fresh herbs, and goat cheese would be beautiful additions to the omelette. Dried fruit, hemp seeds, or fresh seasonal fruit would be lovely additions to the oatmeal. Choose what you enjoy!
