Spinach, mushroom, peppers, tomatoes, zucchini, asparagus...it's your choice, pick one or any combo and enjoy!..
I like to throw in a mix of three different veg, 1/2 cup each and at least two different herbs to make it flavorful. I usually do it as a quiche instead of an omelet, less work...
I do the quiche too. I usually do egg beaters and 75% reduced fat cheddar cheese. A bit of water makes it a little lighter. choice of 3 veggies, usually mushrooms, spinach and peppers..
I love them with broccoli, mushrooms, & salsa. Also have added chopped spinach and artichoke hearts and a little parmesean. Zucchini, broccoli, and mushrooms are yummy also. Just test the Zucchini to make sure it's not bitter.
You can make it like an egg foo young using spouts, cabbage, broccoli and some soy sauce.
Heck just grab the approved veggie list and start trying out some interesting sounding combos.
I like to use part Egg Beaters and part real egg in my omelets and I fill it with mushrooms, spinach, tomatoes, and bell peppers. Topped with salsa! So good!..
Three cups of spinach, 4 ounces of shredded low fat mozzarella, 1 cup of egg beaters for the actual eggs. And garlic powder to taste...
We can have low-fat cheese on the weight loss phase? Is that counted as a healthy fat?..
Thanks for all the suggestions. They all sound great!..
It's counted as part of your lean. One cup of medium fat cheese (i.e., low sodium mozzarella) is a full "lean" portion. Two cups of Eggbeaters is a full "leanest" portion. So 1/2 cup of shredded mozzarella plus 1 cup of eggbeaters will wind up giving you a full lean portion but you'll need one extra healthy fat serving...
What kind off Mozz or cheddar cheese do you use?..
Just Kraft low-fat mozzarella. A purist would tell you that any omelette with spinach should be made with swiss, but the Kraft mozzarella goes great with spinach..
Edit to elaborate:.
The meatless option here lists 4 oz (by mass) or 1 cup shredded of any medium fat cheese (4-6 grams of fat/ounce) as a whole lean..
The cheese in question is this product:.
Which has 6 grams of fat per ounce...
I can never eat all of the egg beaters, so I've developed a signature "scramble" that I adore!.
I pan-fry two morningstar original sausage patties and set them aside. Then I saute aspargus chunks in 1 tsp. olive (or walnut oil) til it's just tender. Then I crumble up the sausage patties into little bits into the pan, add another 1 tsp. of oil and then add 2/3 c. of egg beaters or egg whites.
I let the egg start to firm, then scramble it all up madly and lightly season with a hit of natural bacon or sea salt.
So delicious! And you could do it as an omelet, rather than scramble. And the combo of natural bacon salt with veggie sausage feels so decadent!..
