Salmon and Spinach Goat Cheese Omelet

Every now and then I get a morning when I can take my time and linger over breakfast. It doesn’t happen a lot in our busy household of four, but when it does I make sure that I make a good one.

I’m a big believer of high quality breakfasts. I see this all the time in my private practice. Often, someone will come in to my office with hormones that are out of whack. They’re energy is dragging, they’re feeling a little lack luster and usually they want to lose a few pounds. As I dig, often the story reveals that they’re barely eating breakfast. Maybe they’re eating a little toast with fruit, or a bit of oatmeal. But rarely are they eating anything of much substance early in the morning.

Once we do the big switcheroo and get them eating more in the morning, the changes start happening. The weight starts to come off, their energy improves, and very often we find that they’re moods get a little lift. It sometimes seems like such a little change couldn’t make such a big difference, but it does. And very often the change happens quickly.

This is my all-time favorite breakfasts. I usually make this when I have a little extra time in the morning. This recipe is for one serving, but sometimes I make a really big one with 6 eggs and we split it four ways. I usually have a few roasted potatoes left-over in the fridge that I like to heat up for the side.

All of this, plus a hot cup of my favorite tea (I’m really digging Tulsi Tea’s lemon ginger) and I am ready to take on the day. Go ahead and share this one with a friend. We all need a little inspiration on the food front from time to time, and maybe this little omelet right here might make someone's day.
