I didn’t have my first omelet until I started trying to eat healthier. In my early days of dieting, I would avoid breakfast altogether because I figured “why add all these extra calories when I can just starve straight through to lunch.
Then, one morning at a diner, I discovered the delicious low calorie veggie omelette. I had no idea a bunch of vegetables and eggs could taste so good.
My daughter absolutely loves peppers and mushrooms which I find to be unusual for a toddler but who’s going to complain about a toddler who loves veggies right?
In an effort encourage my daughters healthy eating habits, I have been making this spinach omelet recipe nearly every morning. In doing so, I have perfected my omelet making skills.
Tips for a Perfect Healthy Spinach Omelet
- Pam Cooking Spray This is key. I have struggled with many a failed omelet before the day my mother casually said to me “just use cooking spray and the omelet with slide right out of the pan.” It works like a charm. I also find it essential when making my Low Calorie Veggie Quesadilla.
- Have everything you need nearby Omelet making is a fast paced business I make sure I have everything I need handy. This includes the filling, spatula, and a dish for the finished omelet.
- Try, Try Again That is if you fail, which you might on your first try. But don’t beat yourself up! Omelets can be tricky and quickly turn into plain old scrambled eggs with vegetables.
