When we work away from home, time and money constraints often force us to eat the first thing that lands on our plates. It would be ideal to prepare food the night before and not end up eating something that might not be very good for you. Planning a weekly menu helps a lot and one of the dishes I recommend including once in a while is this delicious Spanish omelet. The recipe is simple and doesn’t require too much of your time, has just a few ingredients, amazing flavor and it’s pretty economical. Some like to add thin slices of onion, chorizo, vegetables and a garlic clove. The combinations vary depending on the person. It’s definitely worth a try! MORE + LESS -
