This green omelette is a great way to get some extra spinach into your omelette by blending it into the egg mix!
If you don’t love spinach this is a great way to ‘hide’ it. This recipe provides a great micronutrient profile. Chicken brings the majority of the energy and protein along with vitamins B3 and B6, choline and phosphorus. Egg whites add more bioavailable protein, selenium and vitamin B2 while the broccoli and spinach add folate, vitamins A, C, E and K1 and a range of minerals.
This recipe uses some chicken and broccoli as a filling for some extra protein and minerals. This recipe also uses egg whites to boost satiety while keeping the calorie count down while still getting plenty of choline.
