It’s often said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. What you eat in the morning can affect the way you feel the rest of the day, so it’s important to have something nutritious and filling to hold you over until lunch without any major snack attacks. The next time you need a hearty breakfast to fuel your adventures, head over to your favorite family restaurant for a delicious omelet. Omelets are deceptively simple and can have a number of different ingredients to suit your particular tastes. Read on to learn why an omelet is a smart choice for breakfast.
You have your choice of just about anything you want to eat for breakfast, but remember that certain foods will only leave you full for a short time. In order to feel satisfied and remain that way until your next meal, you’ll need a meal that’s full of protein. Eggs, the main ingredient in omelets, have about six grams of protein each. When you eat a three-egg omelet, you’ll be getting a little over 18 grams of protein from the eggs alone. Adding in other protein-rich ingredients like cheese, mushrooms, or your choice of meat will up your protein intake even more.
One of the best aspects of having an omelet for breakfast is that you can choose different ingredients every day. If you’re feeling particularly hungry, you can order an omelet with hearty ingredients like spinach, bacon, mushrooms, and sausage. On the other hand, if you like to keep your omelets on the simpler side, opt for a simple four-cheese omelet that lets the taste of the eggs and the cheese shine. When your omelet is served alongside delicious breakfast potatoes or a cup of fresh fruit, you’ll have the ingredients for a great start to your day.

Pies are one of America’s favorite desserts, and for good reason. With a tender, flaky crust and a delicious filling full of sweet, fresh fruit, a pie may just be the perfect food. Pies can be sweet or savory, or even both, and are not just for dessert anymore. Many people in America enjoy eating pie for breakfast, lunch, or as a midnight snack. When your sweet tooth is acting up, there’s nothing quite like pie to satisfy your craving. Keep reading to learn a few fun facts about pies.
The Origins of Pie
Pie is by no means a new invention. Though we at Polly’s Pies think we make the best pie, we certainly can’t claim to have made the very first pie. A fruit pie was first mentioned in print back in 1590, in Robert Green’s Arcadia. Pumpkin pie, often associated with the Thanksgiving holiday, wasn’t on the table at the first Thanksgiving. It was actually at the second Thanksgiving in 1623 that pumpkin pie made its first appearance. If you’re a pie aficionado, you can be glad you weren’t alive in 1644, when Oliver Cromwell banned the eating of pie for 16 years. Thankfully, leaders lifted that ban in 1660 and pie was once again deemed acceptable to eat.
America’s Favorite Pies
Everyone has a favorite kind of pie, and it may come as no surprise that almost one out of every five Americans says that apple pie is their favorite, according to the American Pie Council. Pumpkin pie is a close second, with 13% of people claiming it as their pie of choice. Pecan, banana cream, and cherry round out the top five favorite pies in America. Regardless of the flavor, more Americans say they would prefer friends and family to bring a pie to their house for a holiday instead of a cake or cookies.
Whatever your favorite flavor of pie is, come down to Polly’s Pies to enjoy a slice or to take home a whole pie. With so many flavors to choose from, you might even find a new favorite. You can also round up your entire family and visit us for a fun and wholesome time. Be sure to order online ahead of time when you just can’t wait.

For many people, it’s impossible to start the day without a good cup of freshly-brewed coffee. The good news is that coffee can have certain health benefits. Watch this video to learn more about the health benefits of coffee.
Coffee is made from coffee beans, which contain antioxidants and polyphenols. Antioxidants are naturally-occurring chemicals that help fight the damaging effects of oxygen throughout the body. Caffeine is what most people associate with coffee, of course, and it can have certain benefits.

Pumpkins are a versatile fruit that look as good on your doorstep around Halloween as they do in a pie crust on your plate. They are high in fiber, which is good for your digestion as well as your heart. In fact, just one slice of pumpkin pie can provide up to 11 grams of fiber, which is almost 25% of the recommended amount that an adult should have every day.
Like other orange-colored fruits and vegetables, pumpkin is high in vitamin A. If you have a single slice of pumpkin pie, you may get up to 100% of your recommended intake of vitamin A for the day. Vitamin A is important for your health, as it helps with your eyesight, your immune system, and the proper production of red blood cells.
Vitamin A isn’t the only vitamin you’ll find in a slice of pumpkin pie. Pumpkin pie is also a good source of water-soluble B vitamins, including thiamin, riboflavin, folate, and niacin. These are important for your skin, brain health, digestion, and metabolism. In addition to B vitamins, pumpkin pie has vitamin K and vitamin E, which may help ward off certain types of cancer.
When you’re in the mood to indulge in a sweet treat, consider ordering pumpkin pie at Polly’s Pies to benefit your health as well as your taste buds. All of our pies are baked fresh every day, so you can be sure you’re getting the tastiest desserts in Fullerton. Come in to one of our many locations, or submit an order on our website ahead of time.
