Pumpkin Dessert Omelet

Stay with me. Let me convince you.

Yesterday was…not a bad day, but just one of those days. One of those days where I just wanted to curl up and sleep on the couch.

I didn’t have to work until nearly noon, and after my morning walk with Niko, I got the urge to bake and be lazy. So I did just that.

I baked these freaking delicious (and healthy!) cookies, and caught up with one of my guilty pleasures, The Challenge.

It’s my favorite reality TV show… it even beats the housewives for me!

And don’t worry, I’ll share my cookie recipe soon. It’s a good one. Believe me, I’ve had about 5.

Anyway, all day I was cold, tired, and my mind was focused on PJ’s and the couch. So when I did get to head home last night, I changed right into jammies. Then I ate another cookie. And had a handful of fall trail mix. Then I decided I should actually make something with a little bit of protein for dinner. I needed something sweet (need I tell you what time of the month it is?) and it didn’t need veggies to my overloaded salad at lunch. Shane was gone for the night, and I was only cooking for myself, so it also needed to be quick and easy.

Enter the pumpkin omelet:

I actually started making protein pancakes, but then decided I didn’t want to taste any protein powder. So I took out the protein powder and went with the eggs theme instead. And it turned out…surprisingly freaking fantastic.

Pumpkin Dessert Omelet

omelet:

1 tbsp. coconut (or other) oil

2 eggs + 1 egg white

1/4 c. pumpkin puree

dash of cinnamon

1/2 tsp. vanilla

1-2 tbsp. almond milk

stuffing:

2 dates, chopped

2 tbsp. pumpkin puree

almond butter/peanut butter

chocolate chips

Greek yogurt for topping

Heat up the coconut oil in a pan over medium heat. Whisk together the omelet ingredients and pour onto the pan. Walk away for at least 2 minute. Slide a spatula around the edges to make sure it’s not sticking. Fill with the “stuffing” ingredients.” Cook for 1 more minute. Flip into an omelet. Top with Greek yogurt and more chocolate chips. Bring the fork to the face.

Didn’t even need dessert! Winking smile

Luckily today I have a little more pep in my step, and may even make it to spin class! Since I’ve been fighting this little bug all week, I haven’t done any cardio, save for a few Niko walks. In my experience, when the body is fighting off a cold or flu, it needs the energy it has to do so. It’s why I never workout hard while sick or getting sick, and why I believe I haven’t been full on sick with a cold or the flu since November 2009.

I hope everyone has a lovely, delicious Friday with a pumpkin dessert omelet in their future.

  6. Thanks for sharing the recipe! It looks delish. I find that when I’m sick I feel better if I just chill out, but after a couple days if my energy is back up, cardio always makes me feel better. Especially a high energy session like spin. Happy weekend, Paige!

  18. Yes! I love The Challenge!! Such a great show! I hope this season is dramatic as the other ones ha ha:)
    Ha ha. I laughed as well over the sweet omelette, since I said I don’t like whole eggs in sweet things. I bet this would be good for me with a savory veggie though! Or with just egg whites and some added flour or something.
