Ham & Spinach Omelet

There’s nothing quite like eggs in the morning! This omelet is a simple, old-fashioned favorite with a bit of a healthy twist. (Can I tell you how many tries it took me to spell “omelet” correctly? Wow!) Eggs are great for healthy eating due to their low-calorie and high protein count! One full hard boiled egg has about 72 calories, 4.8 grams of fat and 6 grams of protein! If you use only an egg white, you cut down to only l7 calories, 0.2 grams of fat, and 3.5 grams of protein.

I made these omelets (2 servings) with 2 whole eggs and 3 egg whites, to get the best of both worlds. I added some spinach to my omelets for some added nutritional value, and ham and Colby Jack cheese for flavor. This protein-rich omelet was a great recovery meal after a 90 minute yoga class on Saturday morning.

These omelets turned out really light and fluffy! I used a bit of almond milk which helped with the consistency. I was worried the almond milk would taste a bit odd but I didn’t even notice a difference compared to when I make eggs with cow’s milk. I also seasoned the eggs with sea salt and pepper before they were fully cooked.

No need to be creative all the time with your healthy eating–sometimes “old faithfuls” can be the best!
