avocado tomato omelette

After all of the devastation here in Colorado, we are still in clean up mode.  Areas in the foothills are still in a state of emergency.  A lot of the water around us has receded in our town, but many neighborhoods are still underwater.  We are very lucky.

There are ways you can Help if you can.  There are many families left without homes who did not have flood insurance.  Colorado is a dry, wildfire-prone place.  Most insurance companies don’t mention flood insurance when you buy a home out here.  Due to vast burn areas, the land here wasn’t able to soak up the heavy rain we received and thus, flash floods.  You can see some amazing photos of this tragic event here.

As I said before, we are very lucky.  We didn’t have any damage and were able to continue safely drinking our tap water.  We were, however, stranded for a few days and ate whatever we had on hand to get by – mostly junk.  The highways are finally open and the grocery stores receiving shipments again.  I was able to buy some fresh produce.  This is one of the first things I made.

I was craving fresh avocado and tomato – one of my favorite combination of flavors.  I had provolone on hand so I added it to my omelette but mozzarella would be a good, salty cheese to use too.  I have to say, it was extremely satisfying to eat something so light and fresh for a change.  Things are looking up.

It’s funny, this event has physically separated families and loved ones, but somehow has brought this community closer together.

We are Colorado Strong.

Healthy Avocado and Tomato Omelette

Healthy Avocado and Tomato Omelette

Ingredients

  • 3 eggs (1 whole, 2 egg whites)
  • 1 small roma tomato, cut into chunks
  • 1 thin slice of provolone cheese
  • 1/2 avocado, sliced
  • salt and pepper
  • dashes of dry mustard and cayenne (optional)

Directions

  1. Spray a small non-stick pan with non-stick spray and heat it over medium heat. In the mean time, whisk the eggs, salt and pepper, and dry mustard and cayenne (optional) in a small bowl. Add the egg mixture to the pan and turn the pan so the egg coats the bottom of the pan and part of the sides. After you see the edges turn from yellow to white (cooked egg), sprinkle tomatoes around the egg, and add the cheese. Fold the omelette in half, cover with a lid, and lower the temperature to low. Continue to cook until the inside of the omelette is cooked and the cheese is melted, about two minutes. Remove from heat. Top with fresh avocado slices and sprinkle a couple more tomatoes on top and serve.
