Are you keeping up with your resolution to eat healtheir meals this year? I'm trying to keep my resolution, but breakfast is always the hardest meal for me. Normally, I do not have an appetite early in the morning and am usually too sleepy to think of healthy choices. It's so much easier just to grab something that isn't exactly the best thing for my body.
I have found it is easier for me to have a healthier breakfast if I have a few recipes I really like, so I don't have to put a lot of time or effort into a healthy meal. This Low Fat Sausage And Cheese Omelet is one of my go-to recipes for a simple, yet delicious breakfast or light lunch.
Eggs and sausage both have protein, but they can be high in fat. However, it is easy to adapt recipes you love by switching to healthier ingredients. This Low Fat Sausage and Cheese Omelet is a great way to enjoy eggs and sausage with a lot less fat than a traditional omelet.
Sometimes we think eggs are only for breakfast, but this meal can also be served for brunch, lunch, or even dinner depending on what you serve with it. If you can eat fruit on your diet, a simple fruit salad with a variety of melons is a nice way to balance the meal.
