Zucchini Feta Omelet


I haven’t posted any breakfast recipes yet so here comes the first. I don’t really believe in breakfast foods.  In my world it is perfectly normal to heat up dinner leftovers for breakfast. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with eating meat lasagna at 8:00 am (I know some people would beg to differ). Although I don’t…
