two slices of a veggie-packed omelet, surrounded by additional slices of zucchini and tomato

A Veggie-Packed Start to Your Day

Give breakfast a Southwestern flair with this easy omelet. Chipotle and chili pepper provide a warm spiciness, while cumin and zucchini is a natural taste union. This omelet is so chock-full of vegetables it will make a perfect start to the day or a healthy low-fat, high-fiber lunch item, and it is hearty enough to save and serve as a cold side dish. For quick individual servings, try pouring the egg mixture into a cooking spray-prepared muffin tin and bake for 5 minutes until set.
