Vegetable Omelet - One of the easiest ways to add vegetables to your morning meal is with an omelet. You can whip one up in under 20 minutes, or even quicker if you chop your veggies the night before. The combination of eggs, fresh vegetables, and avocado gives you lots of filling protein, healthy fat, and fiber—everything you need in a breakfast! Serve with whole grain toast and fruit to round out the meal.
