I love omelets! They’re protein packed, customizable to exactly what I feel like enjoying, and if I mess it up, well, then I’m in for one seriously delicious plate of scrambled eggs haha! I like to start with a mix of 1 whole regular egg and a mess of carton egg whites to get a good mix of fat and protein (want them fluffy? add a splash of water & beat them before cooking). I hope this list of 54 possible fillings inspires you to get creative and think beyond the carton haha.
Here’s my top 5 favorite combinations:
The Chinese Take-Out: healthy fried rice (recipe on my instagram) with added zucchini, green beans, and broccoli (cook the veggies with the fried rice then use the loaded rice as your filling)
Inside-Out Burrito: black beans, cheddar cheese, fresh cilantro, peppers, tomatoes, chipotle blend seasoning
Italy Calling: mozzarella, parmesan, zucchini, cherry tomatoes, extra garlic, fresh chopped basil
Green Machine: spinach, peas, asparagus, shaved brussels sprouts, goat cheese, dried rosemary
The All American: potatoes, American cheese, spinach, mushrooms, & a little bit of garlic powder

1 pack or 2 cups of concord grapes  
2 cups of pitted cherries 
2 frozen bananas 
2 cups of coconut water or filtered water
Blend all the above ingredients in a high speed blender until creamy texture form. As more or less coconut water to your desire. The less water, the thicker the smoothie will be.
Tastes amazingly sweet and it is a jampacked with skin renewing micronutrients. Just to name a few, ‘resveratrol’ & ‘polyphenols’ which are both beauty foods! They moisturize skin, help heal old scarring, antiaging, & protect skin from environmental toxins. You don’t need to buy those pricey resveratrol supplements, thanks to natures candy, grapes! 

Like Bees to Honey(dew)

I typically create 5-10 new smoothie creations each week. (yeah, that’s a lot of smoothie drinking). Some are worth noting, while others are worth tossing down the sink. I’m going to start sharing some of my faves I create for Green Blender here!
Here’s one that I loved making. Using fresh herbs, like mint, really add  flavor you can’t get from dried sources. Mint is actually one of the easiest herbs to grow too! Be sure to grow mint in a pot since it will spread all over your backyard.
I remember growing up, we planted a huge patch of mint. In the years that followed, it spread into our grass so that every time we mowed the lawn, in smelled like fresh mint! Not a bad outcome but my point is, you can’t contain it! 
Here’s what you’ll need:
2 handfuls collard greens
1/2 cup honeydew
1 peach - pitted
2 sprigs mint
1 tsp bee pollen
1 cup water
1/2 cup ice cubes
Blend and enjoy!
