Hello WHUR Family,
Food not only fuels our bodies, it also awakens our senses. Nature has given us the best of everything when it comes to food. We now know that the most beautifully-colored foods are also the most nutritious. And, when used in recipes, combining foods can make a beautiful presentation, have intoxicating aromas, fill our mouths with wonderful textures and flavors and create memories. So, food is clearly more than just fuel. Food also provides energy. That energy is what we commonly call calories. Let’s explore the relationships and how to make it all work for us.

Breakfast Omelet Sandwiches
Here’s a hearty and tasty breakfast idea. You can make a savory vegetable omelet even better by sandwiching it in between slices of whole grain bread.
- Vegetable cooking spray
- 1/2 cup chopped fresh mushrooms
- 1/4 cup chopped green pepper
- 1/4 cup chopped tomato
- 2 tablespoons finely chopped onions
- 1/2 cup cholesterol-free egg substitute
- 2 teaspoons freshly grated Parmesan cheese
- 4 slices 12 Grain Bread
- Spray an 8-inch nonstick skillet with the cooking spray and heat over medium heat for 1 minute. Add the mushrooms, pepper, tomato and onion. Cover and cook until the vegetables are tender. Remove the vegetables from the skillet. Remove the skillet from the heat. Wipe out the skillet with a paper towel.
- Spray the skillet with the cooking spray and heat over medium heat for 1 minute. Add 1/4 cup egg substitute and top with half the cooked vegetables. Cook until the eggs are set but still moist on top, lifting the edges of the omelet with a spatula. Sprinkle with half of the cheese. Fold the omelet in half. Place the omelet on 1 bread slice and top with another bread slice. Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
