· May 17, 2018

Starting your day off with a family meal brings joy and happiness to everyone. That’s why you can make them this wonderful easy-to-make recipe. How does having a vegetable omelet sound?

Many don’t know that omelets are originally from Spain. During the Peninsula War, the economic and political embargoes began to make some foods scarce, including potatoes, which are essential for preparing Spanish omelets.

The Spanish people had to come up with simple way to make omelets without any potatoes. The Spanish jokingly called them “French omelets”. To this day, the Spanish still call them by this name.

Eggs are this dish’s main ingredients. However, many creative cooks use other ingredients to make omelets because there are countless versions of this popular dish. This is a healthy recipe because eggs are great sources of protein, vitamins, and minerals and can be eaten often, especially by children.

Egg whites are high in protein and the yolks contain vitamins, minerals, cholesterol, and lecithin. In fact, there have been numerous studies conducted on the nutritional value of eggs. Likewise, yolks provide antioxidants such as lutein and zeaxanthin.
