I have been thinking about breakfast since last night. It is difficult to sleep in when you have chorizo on the brain, so despite the fact that it’s the weekend, I popped out of bed before the sun peaked over the mountains, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed (uhh…anyone know where that expression came from, cause I sure don’t), ready for one of my favorite breakfast items of all time: Omelet with Diestel Turkey Chorizo. This recipe is easy to make, very nutritious and provides ample fuel to start the day off with tons of energy and keeps you satisfied for hours.
Chorizo omelet morning is a pleasant morning; and frankly, I’m not quite sure why it’s not every morning. It’s not so much the omelet as it is the chorizo that packs the punch of excitement. Typically I enjoy salsa on any egg creation, but the Diestel chorizo has so much flavor that salsa is not only unnecessary, it is not invited. I stand by the belief that great food requires great ingredients (especially when it comes to animal products!) and this chorizo is grrrrrrrrrrrrreat! It is not greasy the way pork chorizo can be, so it leaves you feeling satiated as opposed to ready to go back to bed.
Eating vegetables at every meal is a smart practice in order to replenish vitamins and minerals that are depleted throughout the day (especially if you’re an athlete or work an active job) and to promote digestive health. We begin the day already calorie and nutrient-deficient, so a nourishing breakfast like this makes you feel strong! Now I fully understand that some people don’t do vegetables in the morning, so if that is the case, save your chard for lunch or dinner. Greek plain yogurt is a healthy alternative to sour cream; it still gives that creamy tang and supplies the body with probiotics.
