Omelette in a Mug…Protein Packed Breakfast

This is from the Tone and Tighten blog (

Great, quick way to start the day with protein and vegetables!

Eating healthy doesn’t have to be hard- this is a recipe that I have been making for many years. It can be done in less than 5 minutes (to shorten time, I will even chop up all my vegetables the night before, making it ready in about 2 minutes), so there are no excuses for not eating breakfast even when you are short on time in the mornings!

Egg White Omelette in a Mug
egg whites, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons fully cooked ham or turkey bacon (or you can omit meat)
2 tablespoons fresh baby spinach, shredded
1 tablespoon green pepper, diced
1 tablespoon red pepper, diced
1 tablespoon tomato, diced
1 tablespoons reduced-fat cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste, if desired

Spray a microwave-safe mug with non-stick cooking spray. Combine all ingredients in mug and mix. Microwave uncovered on high for 1 minute; stir. Cook for 1-1 1/2 minutes longer or until eggs are completely set.
I love to pour fresh salsa on top.

Makes 1 serving.
