1 Minute Microwave Omelette

I try really hard to eat breakfast every morning, but I’m terrible about it. Occasionally I’ll wake up starving and have to eat a bowl of oatmeal. However, most days I skip it… Whoops. The major problem with this is sometimes I crash around 11am, or worse, I find myself downright hangry by noon.
Louisa is here today to share a super easy, perfectly healthy breakfast. It seems so simple that I think even I can’t resist. (I love the idea of making a breakfast sandwich with this!)

This 1-minute omelette is not the most gourmet breakfast out there, but it does the trick if you’re in a hurry. It’s also a great option if you don’t have access to a stovetop.. (If you do want something a little more gourmet, check out these breakfast recipes.)
I just graduated from university and ever since I started working full time, I’ve found that a good breakfast is one of the most important parts of my day. In college, with a different schedule each day, I found that there were times where I could get away with passing on breakfast and opting for a large lunch instead (not the best idea). However, I’ve found that when working 9-5, passing on breakfast is impossible – by the time lunch comes around I’m positively famished. 
A simple rule for breakfast is to start with protein and build from there. The protein will give you energy and keep you full for longer, I switch it up between a Greek yogurt breakfast parfait (lots of protein from the yogurt, almond butter and nuts) and some type of egg. This 1-minute omelette is a great starting point for your breakfast; it has an egg, a tiny bit of milk, shredded cheese and ¼ cup of vegetables. You can switch up the fillings (add some ham or kale), but as long as it equals ¼ of a cup you’re good to go.
Here are a couple of ideas on how to round out this meal:
– 1-minute omelette + fruit (avocado, apple, banana) + toast (with peanut butter or almond butter)
– Turn your 1-minute omelette into a breakfast sandwich with a whole wheat English muffin and ham.
1-minute Omelette
1 egg
1 tsp milk
¼ cup diced vegetables (tomato, bell pepper, kale, corn etc.)
1 tbsp finely grated old cheddar
Shredded basil, optional
1. In a mug, whisk the egg with milk. Whisk in vegetables and old cheddar and basil, if using.
2. Microwave on high for 1-2 minutes. Once the egg starts to pull away from the sides of the mug, it is ready.
