A wrap on National Nutrition Month!

We are wrapping up National Nutrition Month here at PB&J. This year’s theme was “Go Further with Food,” which is a celebration of healthy choices that build ongoing energy throughout the day and also limit food waste. In honor of this, we had Make-Your-Own Omelette stations set up for our students in the kitchen last week. Omelettes are a great protein packed breakfast option, and also a creative way to use up some of your leftovers! Simply chop up any roasted veggies from last night’s dinner, add a little reduced-fat cheese and just like that you’ve got a healthy breakfast!

Omelet

Serves 1

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • Pinch salt
  • Pinch pepper
  • Non-stick cooking spray

TOPPINGS: turkey bacon, onions, spinach, diced tomato, reduced-fat shredded cheese, mushrooms, diced green pepper.

Method

  1. Crack eggs into a bowl.
  2. Add salt and pepper, blending with a fork.
  3. Heat a 10-inch non-stick pan over medium-high heat. Spray with non-stick cooking spray.
  4. Pour eggs into center of pan. Using a rubber spatula or tilting the pan, move egg mixture around until the excess liquid touches each part of the pan. Let omelet sit in pan for 10 seconds without touching.
