It’s the start of 2015, so I’m trying to share some healthy recipes, like these super easy egg white omelets cooked in the microwave. They can be prepped ahead of time and eaten on-the-go.
I hope everyone had an enjoyable last few weeks. I’m having a hard time getting back into my usual schedule. We spent Christmas traveling and then kept it low key last week. I’ve spent a lot of my free time re-watching Friends on Netflix. I’m not sure why I am so excited that it is now available on Netflix. I actually own all the DVDs, so I could have watched whenever I wanted to, but I haven’t really watched it in years, except for occasionally catching it on tv.
I guess I’m not the only one watching. While going into a Starbucks the other day, I walked past a group of friends having a heated discussion and overheard one guy say “Joey is the kind of guy you marry, not Chandler.” I didn’t know if I wanted to laugh or to interject.
But Monday is now fast approaching so I guess I’ll have to put my binge watching on hold. I love making these egg white omelettes for breakfast during the work week. They are light, easy and you can change up the fillings. I like a lot of fresh, colorful vegetables. You can also prep everything the night before, enough for a few mornings worth, and then in the morning, you just add your ingredients, pop it in the microwave for about 1 minute and it’s ready to go.
