Do you want a recipe that will keep your metabolism stoked during any time of the day?  If you said “yes”, then look no further than this super easy, mouth-watering delight that will have you singing “Isle of Capri” or “That’s Amore” or perhaps just eating the darn thing because you’re eager to dig in! This is what I’m having for lunch today. In fact, I’m still eating as I’m writing (yes, I’m inspired to share this). Now, if you want the video showing how to make an omelet, then you can watch the one from my January 1, 2009 post (my camera was out of juice, but at least I snapped the picture below before it was too late).  The recipe that I’m posting, however, is for my Italian Omelet. This is excellent for any meal and has the following nutritional profile (take note, if you are watching your nutrition and trying to lose fat or gain muscle).  If you are a man and wanting to gain muscle, then simply double the recipe below.  Did I say that this is an awesome recipe?

If this doesn't knock you out of your chair, then you have to tell me!

If this doesn't have you weeping from sheer gustatory pleasure, then you're going to have to tell me!

Liz’s Italian Omelet

1 tsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil

1 Whole Open-Pastured, Organic or Omega-3 Egg

5 Egg Whites

1/4 cup Chopped Onion

1.5 oz. Chopped Raw Organic Collards (yes for calcium!)

1.5 Tbsp. Organic Pasta Sauce

1/2 oz. Gorgonzola Cheese (you can substitute goat cheese, feta or Parmasean)

(I’m holding back the sobs and the urge to finish my last bites in order to tell you what to do.)  Brush the olive oil evenly into the pan on low-medium heat.  Add your egg whites and egg and break the yolk with your spatula (this keeps the yolk concentrated in one part, which I really love; however, if that’s not your bag, then whisk your eggs together before adding them into the pan.)

Cover the pan while you get the remaining ingredients.  Then add them to the eggs and cover (so it convects for an even cooking).  The total cooking time is under 10 minutes, depending on your heat level.  After about 7 minutes, it should be ready.

Mangiamo!

This is a banner moment: the first ever posting on a soon-to-be-teeming site chock full of news, tips and inspiring details on family fitness!

Are you concerned about the 30% of us who suffer from overweight or obese bodies?

Do you care about the ever-increasing lifestyle diseases that plague our country’s children?

Are you tired of being tired?

Do you crave a peaceful home?

Do you want a flat belly?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then stay tuned because I’ll soon be announcing the availability of my new e-book on achieving family fitness.

It’s not just a chintzy 20-pager with how to do crunches, a walking program or how to get junior to eat his oats (notice I didn’t say, “…sow his wild oats” ;) .

No, this is a book jam-packed with knowledge that will give you clear direction on how to build fitness for the family, fitness for yourselves and a synergistic family unit that will catapult you into the future.  The Jone’s will not stand a chance to compete with you!

Check back again and post your thoughts frequently.  You are the reason I am here.  I am the support to get you where you want to be!

Your Family Fitness Guru,

Liz Donnelly
