This omelette in a jar recipe is perfect for a busy day when you need something quick and easy. It’s packed with protein and can be prepped ahead of time, so it’s a perfect way to start the day on those mornings when you’re running out the door.
Why Omlette’s in a Jar?
Busy mornings are when my habits of nourishing my PCOS break down. It seems I either grab something that is low in protein and high in sugar or skip breakfast altogether. This recipe has been a game changer for busy mornings. It can be prepped ahead, takes only a few minutes to grab and go the day off and can be stored until I have time to eat it!
I hope you enjoy this delicious omlette on the go as much as I do!
The Amazing Nutrients in Eggs
Egg whites are an amazing source of protein and a fantastic way to start the day! But don’t forget to include an egg yoke or two because this is where all the main nutrients are. The yoke contains vitamins that support bone and immune system health as well as a good metabolism.
The reason that most people shy away from the yoke is they have been warned about cholesterol. But did you know that this healthy type of cholesterol actually helps your body produce healthy hormones? However, dietary sources of cholesterol have a minimal effect on cholesterol levels in the blood (1) and have actually been shown to improve your cholesterol (2), (3)
Getting Enough Veggies in the Day
The daily recommendation for vegetable intake is 2 ½ cups per day, and ideally we would get a lot more than that, closer to 5 cups. Vegetables are where most of our nutrients such as vitamins, minerals and antioxidants come from.
But getting that volume of vegetables every single day can be challenging so getting started first thing in the morning sets you up to succeed.
If you like your eggs more or less done simply experiment with adding 30 seconds at time. Make notes for future because this recipe definitely is best when you don’t keep restarting the microwave.
How to store and serve
You can meal prep this breakfast by partitioning veggies and seasonings into jars ahead of time and storing in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. Then the morning of add eggs to a jar and cook. To take on the go simple replace lid and take with you to enjoy in the next 3 hours.
