These omelettes are a way to get a very healthy breakfast in a matter of minutes while only dirtying one dish and one knife.

Ingredients

    2 large eggs
    A few strips of bell pepper, diced
    1/2 cup fresh mushroom chopped
    A handful of cherry tomatoes - chopped
    2 small plum tomatoes (or more cherry tomatoes) - chopped
    1 oz. Low-fat cheddar cheese - chopped or grated (I use Bega So Light And Tasty which has only 69 calories and 3.8 grams of fat in .8 ounces.)

Directions

1. Crack both eggs onto a plate with slightly raised edges (just high enough to where a little liquid won't spill over). Whisk only until yolks are mixed with whites.

2. Add chopped vegetables and cheese. Fold into the egg mixture with a fork.

3. Microwave on high for 3-4 minutes or until whites are visibly cooked.

For extra flavour, try adding some Italian Seasoning or some curry spices. You can also mix this up by adding a little meat. I sometimes add a little shaved roast beef or even a little tuna and it's always delicious. This is great on or with pita bread or toast.

For an even healthier alternative, use only egg whites. Using egg whites rather than whole eggs reduces the calories by 115 cal and the fat by around 10 grams.
