Breakfast is the most skipped meal of the day. Skipping breakfast can result in a slower metabolism throughout the day, a higher risk of illness, and weight gain over time. So, why do so many of us skip it?
Based on research, the reason most people skip breakfast is because they don’t think they have enough time to make something worthwhile to consume. They deduce that they are better off not eating, instead of consuming a sugary energy bar. You don’t have to sacrifice health for time efficiency or flavor – you can have all three. The simple solution: an omelette!
Omelettes are a tasty, easy-to-make way to get your day off to healthy start. In addition to being a low-hassle breakfast, omelettes are easily customizable, making them a great option for any breakfast occasion, whether you’re in a rush or serving brunch.
To speed up your omelette-making process even more, it is good to have a recipe in mind before you get started. And we have just the one. With a plethora of delicious flavors, a solid 24 grams of protein, a nice kick of good fats, and plenty of fiber, this hearty breakfast has been a hit with friends and patients alike … and anyone else who has tried it.

Omega-3 Southwestern Omelette Recipe
2 Omega-3 Eggs
1⁄4 cup canned or cooked black beans, rinsed
1⁄4 avocado, diced
1 cup baby spinach
1⁄4 onion, diced
1 link turkey breakfast sausage, diced
1⁄4 teaspoon sweet paprika
1⁄4 teaspoon cumin
1⁄2 teaspoon salt
3⁄4 teaspoon olive oil
1. Crack eggs into a bowl and add a pinch of salt. Whisk with a fork until well scrambled, and set aside.
2. In a sauté pan, heat half the oil over medium high heat. Add the sausage and onion, along with the cumin, paprika, and salt. Heat until tender.
3. Add spinach, and cook until wilted. (It’ll shrink a lot!) Scrape this mixture – which is your omelette filling – into a bowl, and wipe the pan clean. 4. Add the remainder of the oil to the pan, and adjust heat to medium low.
Add eggs and let cook until they set (become an omelette) – about 3-5 minutes.
5. Transfer the omelette to a plate, and spread the omelette filling over half the omelette. Fold the omelette over to create a half-moon shape.
Tip: Even if you want to make your omelette vegetarian by cutting out the sausage, there’s still plenty of protein and good fat to fill you up.
