Basil and Red Pepper Breakfast Omelet

Basil and Red Pepper Breakfast Omelet

This Fab Four breakfast hits all the marks for what I need in a breakfast: flavorful, filling and quick to fix!

I often see clients skimp on protein at breakfast, which leaves them craving more food only an hour or two later. Ladies in particular might fix an egg or two, but you really need at least 4 to get close to your protein goal of 25-30 grams at breakfast.

Here’s the Fab Four breakfast breakdown of today’s recipe: Eggs, Italian breakfast sausage, and goat cheese provide the protein. Ghee and goat cheese are our healthy fats. Shallots, pepper, spinach and basil round out our fiber and greens.

Whether you’re a smoothie girl, an omelet girl, or you just like to switch it up, be sure you’re hitting the Fab Four at breakfast to keep you feeling full, calm and energized in a way that won’t leave you crashing and craving by 10am.
