Awesome Veggie Omelet Recipe

 In Blog

Ah the egg – once deemed by society to be perfect food. It has everything you need to build a strong body: protein, healthy fat, and some cholesterol. Poor misguided souls have been ill-advised about dietary cholesterol, as it’s needed by our body to make hormones. Good hormones = a good body (remember that).

So what happens when you take the perfect food and combine it with some veggies? You get one awesome omelet recipe! This recipe isn’t for everyone though; it’s slightly higher in calories than the usual meal serving. That’s not a bad thing per se, it’s just that this type of omelet would be good for:

-If you’ve been following a low calorie diet and need to cycle a high calorie day in to keep your metabolism going

-You’re an athlete training 8-12 hours a week and thus need a high calorie intake

-You’re trying to put on lean mass

If none of these apply to you, then simply cut the recipe in half. Ready to make an awesome omelet?
