Easy Omelets - A quick, healthy breakfast - Gluten and dairy free
Easy Omelets – A quick, healthy breakfast – Gluten & Dairy free

I am a morning person – but the one thing that can make me cringe before even opening my eyes is arousing from sleep to the knowledge that I didn’t clean up the kitchen the night before.  Most of all, it’s mornings like these that I need a quick, healthy breakfast meal.  Enter Easy Omelets!

Let’s be real.  

In a perfect world, my kitchen would always be clean and ready to go.  However, this world is not perfect, and between a crazy day, exhaustion, and a teething baby who napped during dinner hours for almost 2.5 hours and then was up for hours.  It didn’t get done.

This is what I woke up to this morning.

But, rather than feeling down about my situation, I thought I would put myself to the challenge.  

How quickly could I clean my kitchen, and how could I turn that into a blog post.  Some may ask, why would I turn this into a blog post…

When I first decided to return to the world of blogging, it was really important to me to make sure that I was as real as possible.  Therefore, I didn’t want the world to only see my perfect, organized, clean and wonderful sides.  Instead, I wanted to be honest and humble, because, in reality, we all have these days and it’s nice to know that we aren’t alone.

So, I checked the time and I started.  

It took me 16 minutes to unload the dishwasher, load it up with the dirties, put garbage where it belongs, pick up toys, wipe down counters, and get the kids a snack.  I was pretty impressed that it only took that long.  

Now, there are still a small pile of dishes waiting to be hand washed, but stacked neatly beside the sink they don’t seem so bad.  And if I was heading off to work, or out with the kids, I would pop them in the sink and let them soak so they would be quick and easy when I had time.  But, I’m not going out this morning though so my plan is to wash them in between making our easy omelets.

Even though it only took 16 minutes to clean the kitchen, my kids were STARVING, by the time I was done.  So, I needed a quick easy meal the would still allow me to get to the waiting dishes.

Onto the food – Easy Omelets!

Easy omelet’s are always a winner in our house and a great way to use up leftovers.  This breakfast is a Trim Healthy Mama (S) meal.  So, we had leftover breakfast sausage (for the recipe see the blog post here) to use up and we added it to the omelet.  Also, I added Turmeric to boost the colour, flavour and nutrition!  Turmeric has some fabulous anti-inflammatory properties and my kids didn’t even notice its addition to their favourite meal.  And, quick and easy, I got the dishes done while it was in the pan!!

I’ve included the printable recipe below.  Looking for more great cooking ideas?  Consider following my blog so that you never miss a post.
