Kale Skillet Omelette.

Food Heaven Made Easy

Registered dietitian Wendy Lopez, of Food Heaven Made Easy, promises the Kale Skillet Omelette will be "the next hit dish at your weekend brunch.

"Eggs are one of the best proteins that exist and are actually the best source, according to the PDCAAS or Protein Digestibility Corrected Amino Acid Score (yes, there are actually people who have the job of breaking down proteins and ranking them according to their amino acid content and ratio). The eggs in this recipe not only provide plenty of protein, but they also provide healthy fats, selenium, vitamin D, vitamin B6, vitamin B12, zinc, iron, and copper.  So you can see why we love eggs so much! Kale is also a phenomenal source of vitamin K, A, and C, folate, B vitamins, copper, manganese, and fiber."
