This is actually the start of my Breakfast Skillet (http://www.cherylsrecipes.net/recipe/breakfast-skillet/), but without the eggs and cheese. I make this often when I want a quick, healthy lunch. If you are watching your carbs, you can leave the potato out, although this is a very small potato anyway.
Heat cast iron skillet on stove. Add avocado oil.
Add potatoes and onions to skillet.
Let that cook while you prep the other veggies.
Add remaining veggies to skillet. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring often, until they are cooked as desired.
I like to add roasted black sesame seeds to mine for extra flavor and nutrition.

This is chock full of nutrition! Lots of yummy vegetables wrapped in eggs, and topped with salsa, cheese and cilantro! It’s a great way to start your day! Of course, as always, you can swap out any ingredients you like, or leave out things you don’t like.
Heat small cast iron skillet over medium-medium high heat. Add 1/2 T. avocado oil. Saute onions and spinach until spinach is starting to wilt, stirring often. Add peppers and tomatoes. Cook for a few minutes. Stir until peppers and tomatoes are cooked as desired. Remove items from pan to a bowl.
Reduce heat to medium. Beat eggs with cream. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add another 1/2 T. avocado oil to hot skillet. Add eggs to skillet. As eggs begin to set up around the edges, tilt the pan and lift that portion of the egg with spatula, so that the uncooked egg runs down underneath the cooked egg. Continue moving around the skillet in this way until egg is done.
Add veggies to one side of the omelette.
Tilt skillet and guide gently onto a serving plate. Top with salsa, shredded cheese and cilantro, or your choice of toppings.
This is another recipe that my husband came up with. Creamy eggs filled with cooked bacon, onion, sweet peppers, jalapeno peppers, and topped with cheese. I usually cook up double the meat and veggies, then reserve half of it for a later time to make a quick weekday breakfast.
While that is cooking, finely dice onion, sweet pepper and jalapeno pepper.
When bacon is cooked, add the diced veggies and cook, without draining bacon grease.
Meanwhile, whisk the eggs with heavy cream and season with salt and pepper.
When veggies are nearly cooked, add spinach and cherry tomatoes to the skillet. Cook until spinach is wilted.
Pour eggs over the top of the veggies and stir. Cook, stirring occasionally, until eggs are nearly set up. Remove from heat. We like to eat these topped with shredded cheese and sometimes salsa.
