Enjoy Healthy Protein And Fats For Breakfast!
One of the best ways to start your day is with a good old-fashioned omelette.
Those who begin their day with eggs tend to consume fewer total calories over the course of the rest of the day compared to those who begin their day eating high carb items.
So for maximum weight control, this can’t be beat.
Another great thing about an omelette is that you can add in whatever healthy vegetables you’d like, ensuring it’s packed with fibre and nutrition.
Eggs themselves are going to pack in a good dose of protein, along with vitamin A, vitamin D, vitamin E, folate, iron, zinc, as well as choline.
While they will contain some fat, if you limit yourself to one whole egg combined with egg whites, it’s a perfectly reasonable amount of fat to take in.
So whatever you do, don’t toss the yolk! This omelette recipe incorporates spinach, which is rich in energy-boosting iron and is perfect for those sustaining a regular exercise program.
If you prefer, consider adding a little shredded low fat cheese on top while cooking to bump the protein content up a little more, while adding some health boosting calcium.
The red peppers and salsa will provide a good source of antioxidants, keeping disease at bay and your immune system strong.
Serve this up with some fresh fruits to help add a little more healthy carbohydrates to the breakfast for added energy and you’ll be all set.
