This omelette is an excellent breakfast option that will help to keep you feeling full throughout the morning and provide vitamins and minerals, such as iron and vitamins A and C from the spinach, and B vitamins from the mushrooms.
Protein and vegetables should be the key focus of your weight loss maintenance plan, which makes this recipe an ideal choice on those mornings where you have a little extra time to cook or for a low-calorie weekend brunch.
Low-Calorie Spinach & Mushroom Omelette Recipe
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbsp reduced fat cheese, grated
- 20 g spinach, washed

Preheat the grill to 200°C.
Wash and slice the mushrooms, and wash the spinach, squeezing out excess water with a kitchen towel.
In a medium-sized bowl, whisk the eggs with the milk, then add the grated cheese, spinach and mushroom slices.
Place a non-stick frying pan on a medium heat and spritz with cooking oil spray. Pour in the omelette mixture.
Cook for 3-5 minutes or until the mixture begins to set.
Remove the pan from the heat and place it under the grill for 1-2 minutes, or until the top of the omelette turns light brown in colour.
