Garden veggie omelet


Whip up an omelet with 1 whole egg and 2 to 3 egg whites, then stuff it full of your favorite veggies, like spinach, onion, tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, even zucchini…plus any seasonings you like. When it's seasonal, I like to mix in plenty of chopped basil too. Enjoy with a piece of whole-grain toast spread with a teaspoon of almond, cashew, or peanut butter for healthy fat. If you prefer, substitute a piece of fruit or 1 cup fresh fruit salad for the toast.
