Many of you know that I tried a banana diet several months ago, and it actually worked, except I did get kind of tired of eating bananas. One of the reasons I believe that the banana diet worked for me, was because I was eating 3 square meals a day, smaller portions and making sure I got a couple of snacks in each day to keep my metabolism going. I have never been one to eat breakfast, so finding some recipes that are quick and easy and go well with coffee has been a mission for the past several months. This is one of my favorite things to make on the weekends.
Tomato Omelet Recipe
1 fresh tomato, chopped
green onion, chopped
1/2 avocado, sliced
fresh oregano or basil, chopped
2 Tbs. of extra virgin olive oil
salt and pepper, to taste
In a pan, warm the olive oil over medium heat. In a bowl, use a fork to whisk the eggs and then toss in the fresh tomatoes, green onion, basil or oregano and the salt and pepper. Pour this mixture into your heated pan, covering it evenly. After about a minute or so, lift the edge of the eggs up with a flat spatula to assure they are not browning. If they are already browning, flip it upside down. Once the eggs are cooked all the way through, fold in half and serve with avocado slices on the side. I often sprinkle a little Parmesan cheese in the center before folding to give a little more flavor. It really is a very delicious and easy omelet to make.
