Every once in awhile I won’t want any meat. I don’t know what exactly gets into me, but I’m sure we’ve all experienced this. The meaty texture or consistency just doesn’t sound as appetizing for the time being. But, in my case at least, I still needed some protein in for the day!

Luckily, eggs and egg whites came in to save the day again! This omelet has Quik Fit written all over it. Tasty, simple, and super healthy. All those micronutrients you’re getting in from the avocado and vegetables are going to make your body as happy as your tongue will be from the delicious taste!

Enjoy this for a delicious tex-mex twist on your breakfast or do what I do, have breakfast for dinner. Because after all, breakfast has the best combinations of food and flavors!
