Turkey and spinach omelette
This low-fat nutrient-dense omelette is ideal for a nutrient-dense Protein Sparing Modified Fast for aggressive fat loss. It is designed to maximise satiety to help you eat fewer calories while still providing all the micronutrients you need, even in an energy deficit.
Most of the energy in this recipe comes from the ground turkey, which is an incredibly lean source of protein and also provides plenty of vitamins B3, B5, B6 along with choline and zinc.
The egg white provides some more protein as well as B2, selenium and some sodium while the spinach looks after vitamins A, C and K along with folate, calcium, copper, iron, magnesium and potassium.
The ingredients are pretty simple, but the trick is making sure you have a high-quality non-stick pan, so you don’t need to add too much fat. Although, if it turns out to be a bit of a scramble or crumble, it will still do the job.
