Kanwal’s Healthy Corner – My Power Omelette
Who says you can’t have breakfast for dinner? Better yet, I hope you are eating your breakfast for breakfast every morning. Yes, we all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day, literally breaking your fast from not eating all night and aiding in boosting your metabolism to conquer any of the challenges that your day has to offer. Of course, there is no harm in having your breakfast for dinner either. In fact, one of my most favorite dinners is ‘breakfast’! My most favorite type of breakfast is anything that has eggs. I love eggs anyway I can get them, poached, boiled or whipped up in an omelet; eggs are not only delicious but extremely nutritious. Also, do not be afraid of the yolk, even if you have high cholesterol one egg a day should not harm you. The yolk is filled with nutritious vitamins and minerals (see table below). I hope you’ll enjoy this delicious omelet recipe, which I call My Power Omelet. This omelet is awesome whether you’re eating your breakfast for breakfast or your breakfast for dinner. Enjoy!
