The calories for this zucchini and potato omelet is 206 calories. The macros are 22 g protein, 9 grams carbs, and 9 grams of fat.
Eggs are also so versatile. They can taste different every day. And, veggies are a more natural way to include with eggs than something oatmeal. Lol.
Using the last zucchini from my garden, and a lonely old potato from my counter, I included them both in my eggs for breakfast. But, I sliced them SUPER thin with one of the attachments on my spiralizer.
I also used the thin sliced Sergento cheddar cheese. You don’t really have to spend the extra money for the thin sliced. It’s regular cheese, but at just half the weight, making it easy to have 45 calories, rather than 90. You could definitely just use 1/2 ounce of cheese instead.
You can also substitute this with fat free cheese. But it’s hit or miss whether I can find fat free cheese at the grocery store. The only one in my area that carries it is Walmart, and it’s not always available when I’m there.
How to make a veggie packed cheesy omelet
OK- I wouldn’t say it’s “packed with veggies”, but I will say, a lot of veggies gets cooked down and suddenly it’s not that much. To keep the carbs low, I only used 50 grams of the zucchini, and 50 grams of potato.
I cooked this up on a hot skillet with some cooking spray.
Then, I poured the eggs on top, and cooked both sides before adding the cheese.
Once the cheese was added, I folded it in half and it was finished!
