Well… it has finally happened. The day has come!

Over Christmas my parents were here visiting (hence my lack of an “online presence”) and while they were here they purchased a home!!! It has been years in the making. My mom has wanted to move to Texas once both her kiddos were in the same spot. My dad has wanted to move for a while as well, he’s just been waiting on the right time to retire. And he wishes that Texas would magically grow mountains so he can have both his kids/grandkids AND his beautiful scenery in one spot. I keep telling him I will paint a mural on his fence but that hasn’t seemed to make him move faster.

Either way, they finally decided to pull the trigger and I couldn’t be more excited! It will be great to have them around us again and not have to wait on a good priced plane ticket to see them.

Yeah for built in babysitters!!!!

Definitely a great way to start off the new year!

One of the goals I have for this year is to start off the day in a healthy nutritious way. I LOVE to eat breakfast or brunch on the weekends and even love it for dinner. But when I wake up in the morning, sadly my go to is a cup of coffee and either a granola bar, a piece of fruit, or a bowl of yogurt. Not the best way to start the day, I’m embarrassed to say.

So my goal is to start off with a good portion of protein, good fats, and some fruit!

I’m sure you know this already but, skipping breakfast is not a good way to “lose weight.” Eating breakfast in the morning kick starts your metabolism! Having a good healthy fast metabolism is the way to lose weight. So no more skipping meals during the day people. Give your body the food it needs!

This 2 Minute Egg Omelet in a Mug is the answer to your healthy breakfast dreams. Literally, everything is made in this mug .. which means easy clean up. AND it’s simple enough for an on the go breakfast if you hit the snooze button one too many times.

This Egg Omelet is made in the microwave and is just as fluffy if you made it on the stove top.

The best part about it is the flavors are customizable. I was going for a vegetarian option on this omelet but you could easily make a ham and cheese or spinach and cheese. Whatever suits your fancy that morning or whatever you have on hand. This particular omelet rings up at 187 calories and 14 grams of protein. Pair it with a grape fruit or berries in the morning for some added fiber to make this a complete meal!

If you are looking to cut down the calories, fat, and cholesterol on this recipe then opt for either 3 egg whites or one whole egg and 2 egg whites! I like the whole egg because the yolk is where all the nutrients are at, Vitamin D, B12, and Iron. So if you’re gonna choose one of those options above I would choose the second so you have the nutrients of at least one yolk. 🙂

Which ever option you choose, just be sure to CHOOSE to make this 2 Minute Egg Omelet. I guarantee it will be your new go to recipe in the morning. It is for me! I love that I can customize the “filling” to what I’m feeling that morning, how easy it is, that I only have 1 mug to clean up, and the health benefits .. plus it’s WAY better than that granola bar I was eating!!! (hehe)

Bon Appetite my friends and I hope you have a Happy AND Healthy New Year!

    1. I know right and way easier than trying to get that “perfect flip” in the pan for an omelet. I mess it up every time. This is way easier and faster… hurray! 🙂

  1. No way!! This makes me smile because growing up my dad would often take turns with my mom making us breakfast on school-day mornings and in the interest of time he came up with this very idea for a quick breakfast, experimenting with different ingredient add-ins. My brother and I still smile when we refer back to my dad’s inventive “egg-in-a-cup” breakfasts 🙂 I’ve never seen it anywhere else until now!

  2. I love that your parents are moving to be close to you!! My brother and I both moved 1000 miles away from our parents, and ended up 1 hour from each other. But where are my parents moving? 1000 miles away from both of us in the other direction, for no apparent reason (well, other than weather).
    Love this omelet in a mug – great for busy mornings!

    1. haha… yeah I thought that my parents were going to do the same thing.. but then I played the grandkids card and won them over! hehe 🙂 They are mountain lovers and we don’t have those here, so I told them just leave in the summer when it’s horrible and go to mountains… done deal. 🙂 Yeah for easy eggs in a cute mug

    1. Thanks girl, we are super excited! And i know they will love being around the grandkids. 🙂

      Thanks for the pin and the photo props, means a lot coming from you girl!

  3. Gina

    So excited to try this…eating breakfast every morning is one of my resolutions!
    Quick question…do you cover the mug when you microwave? Not sure if the egg would explode if left uncovered. 🙂 Thanks so much!

  4. This looks great and so easy! My kids are going to love doing this and making their own breakfast without dirtying pans (that is the part I will especially like! :)) Thank you!

  5. Michelle

    Is it easy to get the egg out of the mug? would I beable to turn over the mug and drop the egg on an english muffin? Or does it stick?

  6. […] This one is great on those days where you’re either running out the door or in serious need of some quick pre-gym protein. This particular recipe calls for two eggs, onions, peppers, feta cheese, and some baby spinach, and it’s definitely a solid combo. If you’re more of a “ham and cheese” kinda guy, a little shredded cheddar and diced ham will work well, too. All you do is crack the eggs into the cup, beat it around (feel free to add a tablespoon or two of milk/water), toss it in the microwave for a minute, toss in all the other ingredients, put it on for another 30 seconds, and then let it rest for a minute. The egg cooks perfectly, the cheese melts, and the other stuff has time to mix together. Recipe […]
