Medium fat omelette

This omelette recipe has been designed to provide a middle ground between taste and your fat loss goals, through the use of a mixture of egg whites and whole eggs with some reduced-fat cheese which adds to the decadent taste.   

The egg whites and whole eggs to provide plenty of bioavailable protein and nutrients with moderate levels of dietary fat to allow you to use the fat on your body for fuel.   Spinach provides harder to find vitamins and minerals such as potassium and magnesium.  

Egg yolks contain choline and vitamin A which can be hard to obtain in your diet, so keeping some egg yolks makes for a nice balance of taste and nutrition.  

Nutritional yeast adds some extra flavour and B vitamins and some extra cheesy flavour.

Adding some mushrooms (not in the recipe) to the mix will improve the nutrient density and satiety even more.  Sugar-free sweet chilli sauce and some of your favourite salt (e.g. sea salt or Lite Salt) will help to boost the taste.  

Although the calorie count is fairly low, this recipe makes for a surprisingly large omelette.  There are three versions of the recipe shown below if the larger ones are too much to get through (a good problem to have, really).  

If you don’t feel that you need the cheese and want to prioritise fat loss you can use the low-fat version of this recipe without the cheese.
