  • Packed with Protein: Egg whites have lots of protein, which is good for your muscles and keeping you full.

  • Not Too Fatty: There's a little bit of healthy fat from olive oil and feta cheese, but not too much.

  • Yummy Mix: The veggies, egg whites, and cheese taste great together. The mushrooms are earthy, spinach is fresh, and peppers are a bit sweet.

Overall, it's a tasty, balanced, and healthy breakfast choice!


  • 4 egg whites

  • 1 cup fresh spinach, chopped

  • 1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced

  • 1/4 cup diced tomatoes

  • 1/4 cup diced onions

  • 1/4 cup diced bell peppers (any color you prefer)

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 1 tsp olive oil

  • 2 tbsp feta cheese (optional)


  1. Heat the olive oil in a non-stick skillet over medium heat.

  2. Add the diced onions and bell peppers. Sauté for 2-3 minutes until they start to soften.

  3. Add the sliced mushrooms and cook for another 2 minutes until they release their moisture and begin to brown.

  4. Add the chopped spinach and diced tomatoes. Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes until the spinach wilts.

  5. While the vegetables are cooking, whisk the egg whites in a bowl and season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  6. Push the cooked vegetables to one side of the skillet and pour the whisked egg whites into the other side.

  7. Allow the egg whites to cook for a minute or so until they start to set around the edges.

  8. Gently stir the cooked vegetables into the egg whites, distributing them evenly.

  9. If using feta cheese, crumble it over the vegetable and egg mixture.

  10. Carefully fold the omelet in half, covering the vegetables and cheese.

  11. Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes until the omelet is cooked through but still slightly moist.

  12. Slide the omelet onto a plate and serve hot.

This omelet is rich in protein from the egg whites, packed with vitamins and minerals from the vegetables, and the touch of feta cheese adds extra flavor. It's a great way to start your day with a nutritious and satisfying meal!
