Does anyone else struggle with meal planning and prep like I do? If there is something that falls through the cracks, that is going to be the thing. Last week I had several of those nights. I just wanted to jump in the car and go through a drive through so I could be done with it. On this particular night I felt really bad about that (um maybe because my kids ate Wendy’s the night before!) and wanted my kids to eat something with a little more nutrition. I racked my pantry and fridge for something I could make quickly that would include some fruits and veggies. I came up with a broccoli and cheese omelet and pancakes with a berry compote, it took me 10 minute to make. I thought I would share since it was quick, had fruits and veggies in it, and was a hit with my kids. It was only semi homemade since I used microwave pancakes, but it was not from a drive thru, YAY!
Broccoli Cheese Omelet:
Steam 1 cup of broccoli florets then give them a rough chop
Wisk together 4 eggs, 2 tbs of milk and some salt and pepper.
Spray a pan with a little olive oil (or cooking spray) and pour it in. Let it cook over medium high heat until the top of the egg mixture looks kinda like jello and is a little bubbly.
sprinkle in broccoli and a good handful of whatever cheese you have.
Flip half of it over on top of itself, and cut into wedges to serve.
Berry Fruit Compote:
Rinse 1 cup of frozen berries in a strainer, mine were mixed berries but you could use any kind.
Put into microwave safe bowl. Add 1 tbs of sugar, a dash of vanilla, and 1/2 tsp flour. Heat in microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute and then stir/mash with a fork.
Pour this over your pancakes or waffles and it is yummy and full of antioxidants!
