Let's talk about breakfast food. For years, I was not a breakfast person and then somehow, I fell in love with breakfast food at any time of day. Grits for dinner? Hell yeah! And maybe that transferred a little bit to breakfast in that breakfast became more like a lunch or dinner...or maybe a European breakfast? See, for some reason Americans don't 'do' veggies or extras with our standard fare and that's a damn shame. From a nutrition point of view veggies at breakfast is a NO BRAINER. Like, I'm going to beg you, please eat your veggies at breakfast! They're full of fiber and smart carbohydrates to keep you full and energized throughout the morning. And adding a healthier protein than fatty sausage in the way of salmon gives you an extra gold start! Both the salmon and avocado in this case are beauty booster foods, especially for your hair and skin. You need healthy fats for glowing skin and silky hair. Girls who pass on healthy fats (live in the 90's) have dry, brittle hair. No thanks.
This omelette actually became lunch after I shot it for the husband and myself. He gives it two thumbs up! Ever since high school we've been hooked on salmon (Yes, we've actually known each other since elementary school). Our senior year there was a homecoming tailgating competition which we freaking crushed. CRUSHED IT because we served bagels and lox, grilled local venison and also had a slushie machine. At like seventeen years old. Those poor other kids had no idea what they were dealing with.

They're basically considered one of the hardest simple things to make and everyone has an opinion!
