When I changed my eating habits many years ago and lost 50 lbs just by changing what I ate (see my article How a low carb diet helped me lose weight fast), my regular breakfast was an omelette. Below is my low carb organic veggie omelette recipe.
I purchased organic ingredients when available for my omelette, below is what I put in my omelette. You should use veggies that you like. Quantity of each veggie depends on your preferences. I typically cooked around 6 eggs for this recipe to make sure I’m full so I don’t snack between breakfast and lunch.
You may choose whatever vegetables (and meats if desired), organic or not organic, that make you happy and motivated to eat breakfast every morning. If you have an issue with cholesterol you could have an egg white omelette.
If you don’t like what you eat, then you won’t eat it consistently and it won’t be a permanent change in your eating habits.
If you would like to have meat in your omelette, you could cook it first since it takes more time to cook.
Wash veggies. Chop up the vegetables into small pieces, size of pieces depends on what you like. You’ll want to put the veggies that take longer to cook in the same bowl, like carrots, bell peppers, onions, etc. Cook these veggies first because they need longer to cook. I like the veggies to be slightly soft, not mushy.
Put veggies that cook fast in their own bowls, like mushrooms, zucchini, etc. These veggies would go into the pan next, they need just a little amount of time to cook.
I don’t usually chop spinach, put some spinach and cheese in separate bowls for easy access. Note, spinach cooks down to small amount. I usually put spinach in next to last because takes very little time to cook.
Chop tomatoes and put in a bowl. Slice avocado and put aside. After cooking the spinach briefly, I add the tomatoes because they really don’t need to be cook unless that’s what you prefer. I usually keep some chopped tomatoes to put on top of omelette.
Pour some olive oil into a pan, add some sea salt and pepper, and warm up on medium heat. While oil is warming up, cracks the eggs and beat with a fork until blended, put in a bowl and move aside.
The amount of time you want to cook the veggies depends on your preference. Do you like the veggies to be more firm or more soft. I like to cook them until they are soft, not mushy. Below is order of cooking summarized:
