Greek Style Omelet – WLS Recipe

 

Greek Style Omelette | Bariatric Surgery Recipes | FoodCoach.Me

I make eggs almost every morning. I love them for many reasons. Here is a bulleted list of the reasons for my love:

  • delish and nutrish (delicious and nutritious that is) 
  • fast and easy cleanup
  • fill me up
  • I can find lots of variety
  • I can make thousands of jokes using the word. Okay, not thousands, I eggs-aggerate.

Keeping variety in eggs is key. Eggs alone is great on occasion, but gets boring quickly. Each week at the grocery store, my better half and I glance around at what we’ll be putting in our eggs for the week.

We went for a Greek styled version last week. We loved it!!! Although one day I did overdo the spinach and it was not the best. Buuuut plenty of iron and Vitamin K for the day!

Note: if you struggle with making a perfectly folded omelet, no worries, this is an awesome as a “scrambler”
