Jump into New England fall with this delicious apple + sharp cheddar omelet with added hemp hearts for a fiber & protein punch.

Why I love apples so much

I’m a Washington girl, and being so, apples = life. Seriously, one of my favorite activities in the fall is going to the local Washington orchards and picking barrels of these beauties. Unfortunately, life in Utah isn’t so wonderful. I’m beginning to think that there’s no such thing as delicious self-picked apples. Oh well, at least there’s still Washington apples.

Now that I’ve wiped my tears, I’ll focus on what I do have, and that’s access to delicious crips apples, just not the type I can pick myself. This simple and delicious meal is the perfect way to get over it. It was inspired by my trip to New York City last year. My family ate at Good Enough to Eat, I split the Gramercy omelet and a sweet dish with my mom, and we fell in love with the bright flavors of New England that were stuffed into this delicious omelet. Hence this idea. It’s heavy on crisp apples, freshly wilted kale, fiber dense hemp hearts, and is lighter on the cheese. All of this to make a perfect and delicious fall breakfast or too-easy dinner. You’re welcome.

What the heck are Hemp Hearts?

Finally, have you tried hemp hearts before? I love them because they’re really versatile, easy to add, and packed with protein and fiber. Plus they’ve got a mild flavor, so you probably won’t taste them when added to other foods. What more can a dietitian want?
