Egg-cellent nutrition for life on the run

We get it. Fall is a busy time of year. These on-the-go omelettes can be made in advance and warmed up for a quick meal or snack. And yes, you can freeze them too.

It’s hard to even call this a recipe because both the ingredients and the measurements are flexible. You can switch up the meat, the cheese, and the vegetables–your taste buds won’t get bored with so many flavor combinations.

Pro tip: these are great to make when it’s time to clean out the refrigerator to avoid food waste!
