Red Pepper Omelet & Homemade Wheat Bread

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day.  It feels like a chance to set a (food) tone for the day, to declare to the day that nutritious, yummy, fulfilling choices are going to be made.  This is one of my favorites – an eggs/egg white omelet with whatever veggies happen to be leftover from the day before.  I had red peppers left from having a veggie tray out at a party before, and I tossed them with 1 egg + 2 egg whites, 1/8 cup of shredded manchego cheese and a splash of skim milk.  The bread is a homemade whole wheat made by the wife of a “graduate” of mine (who lost a mere 75 lbs in 18 months… even with this delicious bread in the house!)

Egg omelet: 170 cals, 2 oz wheat bread 140 cals, 1 tsp honey 20 cals, 8 oz light pom/cran juice 40 cals, tea zero = 370 cals.  Stayed full for almost 4 hours, too.  Yum.
