Fish omelette & greens

This omelette recipe has been designed to maximise satiety and nutrient density. It makes for a very nutrient-dense way to start the day that will set you up to manage your appetite.

It uses egg whites and whole eggs to provide plenty of protein and nutrients with moderate levels of dietary fat to allow you to use the fat on your body for fuel.  Spinach and egg are always a great combination, while the nutritional yeast adds some extra flavour and B vitamins. Egg yolks contain choline and vitamin A which can be hard to obtain in your diet while still keeping the protein:energy ratio high.
