Tuesday's Tip of the Day ~ Eat Eggs, They're Practically the Perfect Protein

Did you know that eggs are nearly the perfect protein?
Our nutrition textbook recommends eating up to 4 each week.
Our school resource officer (and friend of mine) used to manage a restaurant.
He likes to visit my Fitness for Life class and teach the students how to make omelets...just like they do at Perkins.
It is important to prepare all equipment and ingredients...so enlist some help in chopping.
Then, beat 2 eggs with a tsp. water and pour onto hot griddle.
Use your spatula to create an 'egg rectangle'.
Be gentle.
Allow to set for just a bit.
Add the cheese next...so it can start to melt.
Then add additional ingredients...
We used cheese, ham, onions, peppers, mushrooms and tomatoes.
Your imagination is your only limit.
Fold your omelet into thirds.
Cook a little longer on both sides, until it is a golden brown.
That's dinner in less than 15 minutes...
Nutritious...delicious...and economical...
Enjoy!

Take care,
~Natalie
