Rainbow Vegetable Omelet (Omelette)
A Nutritious, Delicious & Visually Appealing Omelet!
As a Pesca-Ovo Vegetarian, I am sharing my favourite, rainbow-coloured vegetable omelet (omelette) recipe which is delicious, healthy, nutritious and usually puts an extra 'umph' or 'pizazz' in my day.
One of the best ways to ensure that your food intake is healthy, nutritious and that you are getting all of the required vitamins and nutrients that your body needs is by eating a 'rainbow diet'.
A 'rainbow diet' is one that contains as many, if not all, of the colours of the rainbow - Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Purple - since each food colour provides a different set of vitamins and micro-nutrients.
Additionally, I am like most people, I like attractive and interesting looking food. So whether I am making an omelet (omelette), baking a cake or cooking a rice dish, it must always have an eye-catching look.
This rainbow vegetable omelet (omelette) recipe effortlessly incorporates healthy, delicious and nutritious in your most important meal of the day BREAKFAST!
This omelet is so delicious that when I prepare it, I usually eat it by itself without bread or anything else. I just want all of that goodness by itself. Try it yourself and you will see what I mean.
