Low Calorie Zucchini & Potato Cheese Omelet (with 22 g protein!)June 2, 2023
Delicious breakfast that’s high in protein, flavor, and nutrition! This Zucchini & Potato Cheese Omelet is low in calories and very filling.
If you’ve been here awhile, you know I eat a lot of eggs! I really think it’s the perfect breakfast to start my day. High in protein, low in calories, eggs are my favorite.
Eggs are also so versatile. They can taste different every day. And, it is more natural to incorporate veggies into a food like eggs than oatmeal. Lol.
Using the last zucchini from my garden, and a lonely old potato from my counter, I included them both in my eggs for breakfast. But, I sliced them SUPER thin with one of the attachments on my spiralizer.
