Order the Healthiest Omelet
The yolk of a whole egg holds many of the vitamins and minerals while the egg white contains lower fat, calorie, and cholesterol option for protein. Here are a few tips to order the healthiest omelet for your breakfast.
Add More Veggies
Add more flavor and nutrition to your omelet by including a variety of veggies such as bell peppers, onions, tomatoes and more.
Request Less or No Cheese
Omelets can become the worst choice for a healthy breakfast if it is loaded with gooey cheese. So, requesting less or no cheese cuts down a considerable amount of calories and saturated fat from your diet.
Make lower fat and calorie choices by adding lean meat including ham, or sausage that adds more flavor and nutrition to your omelet.
Pair It Well
To round out your breakfast add a whole grain toast and fresh fruit juice adds filling fiber, vitamins, and minerals to your healthy diet.
