19 Perfect Paleo Omelettes
Like frittatas, omelettes are a hearty egg dish that’s totally packed with protein and can make a great fuel meal for any time of day. Yes, that’s right—I don’t reserve omelettes just for weekend breakfasts. Lunch and dinner are fair game, too, especially with omelettes containing a lot of meat and vegetables. All of these omelette recipes are tasty, and they’re all paleo or easily adaptable to paleo by skipping the cheese (unless you’re looking for a cheat). Get cooking!

15. Bacon, Jalapeno, and Spinach Omelette

16. Dressed Up Spanish Omelette
This omelette has it all, from eggs to kale to chorizo sausage, and boy, is it seriously delicious. The savory garlic and Spanish onion add a spunky flavor, as do the green onions, and if you’re so inclined, a bit of feta or a lemon wedge (or both) would go nicely.
