#bern200 – ‘But I Don’t Have Time For Breakfast!’ Tips From @KoreanGold

“I don’t have time for breakfast.”

“I’m not hungry that early in the morning.”

“I don’t know what to eat.”

“I don’t have time for breakfast” is the excuse I most commonly hear when I talk to others about starting the day off right. I don’t have time either but I MAKE time. My job, my family, fitness, and Facebook take up a good chunk of the 16-18 hours I am awake but we still MAKE time, EVERY SUNDAY. Prepping food for the week ensures we have time for breakfast every morning, and since it’s the most important meal of the day, you can’t skip it.

Every Sunday we get our groceries for the week. Every Sunday, I’m dicing up bell peppers, jalapeno peppers, onions, mushrooms, and cilantro for the week. I sauté them up and off they go to the fridge waiting for me throughout the week to make one of the best omelets EVER.

I like to top my omelets off with some salsa. The salsa just adds that extra ummph to the omelet. I normally buy salsa from the store. However, in an effort to save on sodium and money, I made my own salsa. Living in El Paso for the last few years, I’ve learned to really enjoy GOOD salsa. If you MUST buy salsa, Sadie’s salsa is THE way to go. Below is the recipe I use for my home made salsa.

Ingredients

6 roma tomatoes
1 can of organic tomotaoes
handful of cilantro
3 jalapeno peppers diced
½ of large yellow onion diced
1 bell pepper diced
juice of 1 lime
minced garlic to taste
sea salt to taste (be easy on the salt; the jalapeno goes a LONG way)
Pulse to desired consistency and store in fridge.

In the mornings, as I’m getting ready for work I take an egg or two and some egg whites (in the carton), throw the veggies in and top the omelets with some of the above homemade or Sadie’s salsa and breakfast is DONE in 10 minutes or less. That’s 10 minutes; you have 10 minutes. Get off of Facebook for a few minutes in the morning, don’t make that trip to (insert fast food chain here) etc. and give yourself time to make yourself a delicious and healthy breakfast.
