An Easy Recipe for A fluffy Omelet

Making a fluffy omelet takes little time and makes a delicious meal for breakfast, lunch or even dinner. Eggs are a super protein and very low in calories as long as you add healthy veggies and low fat cheese. When cooking up an omelet you can get creative with spices and herbs for extra texture and taste. For those on weight loss or low fat diets don't give up eating eggs. Eggs, along with containing few calories are very versatile and economical. Adding more egg whites to the egg mixture increases the size of the omelet without adding calories or fat. I make an omelet once a week for either breakfast or dinner.

Serving Suggestions and Other Ideas

You can try different veggies and meats with this omelet recipe. I use grape seed oil when sauteing most foods,because the oil can handle higher temperatures without smoking on the stove. The oil offers many health benefits.

Try different cheeses such as: pepper jack, feta cheese and havarti

Serve the omelet with sliced tomatoes, fresh fruit and whole grain toast. This is just one of many easy omelete recipes.

      Sounds very filling, and I love that you included lots of fresh herbs. I like shredded basil in eggs too. I've never used grapeseed oil but I'm guessing it must be a healthier choice than olive oil. Another awesome recipe! Thanks, Carol.
