    How to Make the Perfect Healthy Omelet

    hi guys,

    Are you a fan of omelet? If so, here following are some tips on how to make the perfect healthy omelet that I would like to introduce to you. Hope that helps!

    Any healthy diet you are ticking to is not complete without a recipe for a tasty yet low-calorie omelet for weight loss. This dish is the basis for a useful breakfast all over the world. If you haven’t found a low-calorie substitute for hearty pancakes, take a look at the following recipe that will enrich your first meal of the day and even serve as the perfect end of it.

    Here, we’ve gathered some interesting tips on making your omelet perfect and healthy without a ton of harmful ingredients.

    How to Make the Perfect Omelette

    There are as many omelet styles as there are countries on Earth. Each one hides its secrets of a perfect roll-up or a whip. And even despite the simplicity of the recipe, it’s won the title of the most delicious breakfast food on all continents. And if you are here for the perfect healthy omelet recipe for weight loss, you will not be disappointed.

    The French master chefs of old hid a secret that makes the omelet fluffy and tasty like a cloud melting in your mouth. The secret ingredient is “a teaspoon of cold water per egg.” It seems like an insignificant ingredient, but it makes all the difference. You see, upon heating, water becomes steam that elevates the whole egg mixture, thus making it fluffier. In some countries, the amount of added water is far larger than that, turning an omelet into a puffy cake of sorts. I don’t recommend overindulging, though.

    What to Add to a Healthy Omelette

    The omelet base, well eggs (duh), is healthy on its own. Eggs are full of protein that is essential for keeping your body healthy. A 2015 study proved that eating two three eggs a day bears significant benefits for cardiovascular health and weight loss.

    Now, it’s a matter of tasty addition to an omelet that would keep it healthy or even bring more nutritional value to the dish. Here are some of the most interesting additional ingredients to use.

    Beans

    Beans make the perfect companion for a healthy omelet. They are also full of protein – 15g per serving. The high number of carbs – 45g – does not prevent weight loss because of the beans, especially the black ones, and full of fiber. Thus, they fill you up for the whole day without stocking fat in unnecessary places. This additional intake of fiber was proved to reduce cholesterol levels and belly fat percentage. The importance of the latter can be seen in our body composition article.

    Tomatoes

    If you haven’t tried eggs fried or baked with tomatoes, you don’t know a genuinely heavenly dish melting in your mouth. While tomatoes consist of 95% water, the rest 5% will enrich your daily diet plan. This nutrient-dense superfood supports weight loss and the overall health of your body.

    However, tomatoes’ power here is not only in their nutritional value but also in the mouthwatering combination of tastes.

    Turkey

    To stay healthy, you are not required to stick to vegetables. A bit of nutritious and low-fat turkey meat will make the omelet hearty and substantial to provide energy for the whole day. One way is to add small turkey chops when the omelet is almost done. Another way to add ground turkey to the mix initially and cook it all in the oven.

    Jalapeno

    Spicy food enthusiasts will be delighted to add a few jalapeno peppers to the mix! This jolt of spiciness will help burn those fats and give you enough energy to last till your next meal. In terms of weight loss, hot spices are the perfect metabolism booster if added moderately.

    If not jalapeno, any other fiery pepper like cayenne or habanero will do for a fat-burning omelet.

    Mushrooms


    A fan of mushrooms? Then add them to your morning omelet! A naturally healthy dish with even more nutritious mushrooms creates a substantial meal and a blast to taste buds. No matter which ones you choose, all of them are low-calorie and rich in nutrition.

    Omelette Recipes

    Here are a couple of interesting omelet recipes with the above-mentioned and a few other easy and fast ingredients to put together even on a busy morning.

    A Creamy Omelette with Mushrooms

    Ingredients:

    100g mushrooms
    3 eggs
    3 tsp water
    2 tbsp sour cream
    1 tomato
    chives
    cheddar
    Beat eggs with salt and pepper to your taste.
    Add sour cream and water and whip them a bit more.
    Slice mushrooms and tomato.
    Heat a pan and simmer tomato cubes for around 4 minutes.
    Add mushrooms and cook on high heat for about 2 minutes.
    Pour the egg mixture and lower the heat.
    When the omelet is almost done, add chives.
    To add extra oomph, a bit of cheddar on top will create melted heaven!
    A Fluffy Omelette with Turkey
    This is yet another simple omelet recipe that can become your favorite morning dish while you keep to a healthy diet! This one is a bit more calorie-heavy due to the added meat, but it’ll give you more energy for the day! Pair them up with some keto-friendly whipped matcha Algona!

    Ingredients:

    150g of turkey (either ground or thin slices)
    3 eggs
    50ml milk
    3 tsp water
    1 tomato
    basil
    garlic
    Heat a pan and add a small bit of butter. Add a diced clove of garlic for 10-15 seconds.
    Add diced tomato and cook for around 3 minutes.
    Put all the meat in a pan and cook it till ready.
    While the meat frizzles, beat the eggs, water, and milk together.
    Pour the mixture into the pan and stir it while the eggs are cooking.
    When plated, add a couple of basil leaves.
    As the side to your omelet, you can add a spoonful of beans, salsa, a few slices of avocado, or even simmered vegetables sprinkled with soy sauce or any other dressing you prefer.

    Personal recommendation: switch on your imagination and experiment. The raw egg mixture remains unchanged, but the additional ingredient can be anything to your preference. More healthy options include ricotta, quinoa, chive, olives, broccoli, bell pepper, onions, spinach, feta, etc.
