Diet Omelet Tips
Want to save a few calories and fat grams?
Simply substitute the egg white for the yolk of the egg using two egg whites for every yolk used.
The egg white is substantially lower in calories and fat grams - and contains zero cholesterol. One large egg contains about 50 calories, so as we can see the bulk of calories stems from the egg yolk.
If you want to save a few more calories then you can substitute an 'egg substitute' product which tends to be very low in calories - a one-fourth serving size of egg substitute contains about 25 calories.
Even if you add fat reduced cheese and veggies to your omelet is should contain less than 100 calories when prepared with cooking spray.
