QUICK Omelet in a Mug
Morning time doesn’t get much easier than this!
Absolutely NO REASON to skip breakfast.
High protein first thing in the morning helps me to feel better and have fewer cravings all day long.
I actually love these omelet mugs any time of the day! Excellent snack idea or sometimes even dinner if nobody else is around.
You can try using any chopped veggies you like, and definitely try this idea using different herbs such as fresh basil too!
Once in a while, I’ll even add in a sprinkle of cooked & crumbled sausage, bacon, or even chopped nitrate-free pepperoni. The combinations are endless!
I’ll often use 1 whole egg plus a bunch of egg whites (instead of 2 whole eggs) to boost my protein. Use this recipe as a base to support YOUR own personal goals and nutritional needs. Make it your own!
➡️ Rachel’s notes:
🥛Use ANY unsweetened/plain yogurt or milk of your choice. My personal favorite for my omelet mug is Greek yogurt or unsweetened coconut milk. Any unsweetened nut milk, coconut milk, high-quality grass-fed cow’s milk, or heavy cream all work really well here. Use what you like and have on hand.
🧀 Cheese please:
Instead of buying pre-shredded cheese, I like to find a block of grass-fed cheese ON SALE and shred it myself….or better yet enlist one of the kids for this duty.
Many pre-shredded varieties are coated in very strange things (anti-caking & clumping garbage) that actually interfere with the natural texture and melting quality.
