The Whitey Omelet

One of the most difficult food decisions for a lot of people is the question of what to eat for breakfast that is high protein and low calorie. You have heard many people say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and I happen to agree.

It is much easier to fix your own breakfast at home. I happen to eat a TON of Chobani Greek yogurt with a 1/4 cup of GingerZing granola from Whole Foods. That is about 280 calories and 17 grams of protein.

But I am also here to tell you that it is easier than you think to eat a healthy breakfast out.

Here is my favorite healthy out of home breakfast in Charleston.  It comes from Mozzo Deli and is called the Whitey Omelet. I have them lose the onions and add sundried tomatoes…(You can also make this at home, and I have…)

4 egg white –  100 calories, 20 g protein
3 tbsp julienned sundried tomatoes – 50 calories, 1 g protein
4 oz sliced roast turkey – 120 calories, 2o g protein
1 cup of baby spinach – 10 calories, 2 g protein
1 slice of swiss cheese – 70 calories, 5 g protein
2 slice of dry (no butter) wheat toast – 140 calories, 5 g protein

Total – 490 calories, 53 g protein

Sounds awesome doesn’t it? It is…trust me.

    I would put part of the omelette between the toast and make a sandwich. Did that just blow your mind?!

    Sounds good, but people really need a breakfast staple they can make again and again, especially when they need to get out the door quick (read: almost every week day for me). Here is my “usual” breakfast:

    – 7 oz 2% milk
    – 1/2 sm or med banana
    – 1 tbsp Smuckers natural peanut butter
    – 1 tsp honey (a good squirt)
    – 1/3 packet (a scoop) of EAS Myoplex Original Chocolate flavor

    Mix all ingredients in blender. Best tasting pretein shake ever. Takes about 2 minutes to make, and you’re out the door.

    371 cals
    35g carbs
    14g fat
    26g protein

    The high protein shake keeps your hunger satiated for a solid 2-3 hours.
