Looking for a healthy veggie omelet recipe that you can have for breakfast, lunch or even as part of your dinner? Then I’ve got the perfect one, because eggs can fulfill either of those! They are packed with high quality protein and that’s why they are loved by healthy freaks, but almost everyone can appreciate this type of food.
Not too long ago it was advised to not eat eggs more than twice a week, but nowadays this idea has luckily been adjusted. It’s safe to have an egg every day, while it has all kinds of good nutrients. It’s true that eggs contain cholesterol, but they also break cholesterol down, so there is no effect on our bodies for that concern. Eggs are also a great source of choline, which is a nutrient that has many positive effects for example on your brain and muscle function. The egg white and yolk both contain protein, but the yolk contains more fat (the good ones though!) so if you don’t want too much calories/fat this can be left out. Preferably choose eggs that are organic, or at least free-range.
“You can’t make an omelet without breaking a few eggs”
Make yourself a healthy veggie omelet to enjoy eggs in a healthy and yummy way! The best thing about omelets is that they are just really easy to make and you can adapt it in any way to your own preference. It’s tasty, filling while adding up to both your macro- and micronutrients in a good way – it almost can’t get better than that 😉 With only 200 calories (!) this recipe suits any fit girl’s nutrition plan. Not the best cook? Don’t worry, because an omelet (almost) can’t go wrong and if it does, I always decide to go for scrambled eggs – lol! As long as you don’t burn it, your efforts will be delicious. Eggs just simply do the job and can make boring vegetables so much better!

1. Grab a bowl and add the eggs. Whisk with a fork.
2. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half or quarters and chop the spinach into small pieces. Place it next to the stove to add to your omelet in the pan.
3. Take a frying pan and use a small amount of coconut oil to bake (if you don’t have this, use some other oil by choice). First add the egg mixture to the pan and quickly after this add the veggies (before the egg is starting to get solid). Lastly add some garlic powder and pepper and bake the omelet till it’s done to your preference.
4. Is the veggie omelet baked enough? Then take a plate, spread the cottage cheese on a slice of bread and place the omelet on top. Add some more pepper or other spices to taste if you like and you’re ready to go! Got a few minutes spare time? Then toast the bread in the toaster for an extra crunchy bite!
