Easiest Egg White Omelette 

Egg white omelettes are easily one of my favorite foods! They are low caloriehigh protein, delicious and so easy to make! I start with 2 to 3 eggs, but don’t be afraid to eat more since they are so low calorie. I crack the egg and flip the yolk back and forth between each shell while the white’ falls right into the measuring cup. I promise its so easy!  

At this point I turn the stove on at medium heat and set my pan on it so it can be heating up, making it that much quicker! We like quick! Once the whites are in the measuring cup, take a fork and stir or beat them. There’s really no right way, you just want them good and runny.

The next step is to turn down the heat just a bit, spray your pan down with olive oil and immediately pour the egg white in. It will be yellowish at first but you will see it will quickly start turning white. I wait till it’s good and white before putting in my ingredients and spices as you can see in the picture below!

When it looks like the picture above, take your spatula, place it under the edge of the egg white and begin running a circle around your omelette. This is just making sure the white is good and firm on the bottom and ready to flip! Once it hits that stage, take your spatula, place it in the middle of one side and flip over. 

Let it sit like this on one side for about 30 seconds and flip it to the other side and viola! You just made the perfect egg white omelette. I had a few mishaps before getting it down but the techniques I have listed should help you do it with the first try!

This omelette contains about 120 calories and 15 grams of protein! I used two egg whites, a little shredded cheese, spinach, 2 slices of turkey, and spice for taste! This is an insanely healthy snack, breakfast, lunch, or dinner! Top with salsa, add a side of whole grain toast and avocado, and boom done. I eat this at least one or twice during the week because it’s so easy and healthy!
Each egg white is only about 17 calories and has about 3.5 grams of protein. In comparison, 1 egg with the yolk is 60-70 calories. So you can have 4 egg whites for the same cals as 1 egg with the yolk. Small changes like this help make a big impact!
