Mushroom, Cilantro ( and feta) Omelet





Looking for a fast, but healthy and low calorie snack or meal that is of course gluten free?
Think eggs and omelets!
Omelets are fast and simple to make,  a great source of protien,  and can be combined with any kind of vegetable.
This mushroom and cilantro omelet took me only 7 minutes to prep and make.
I was proud of myself that  despite being in a hurry, I ate consciously.  I keep my fridge stocked with vegetables and fruits which makes it easier to make a healthy choice, even when in a hurry.

 I grabbed a little handful of the  fragrant cilantro, and sliced a little plate of scallions, washed a few sliced mushrooms and made my omelet.

It was 4 points+ on Weight Watchers and delicious.
If I wanted a little more substance,( and more points) I could have added some  creamy feta cheese on top of the mushrooms before cooking, or topped it with salsa ( which is 0 points) when it was done.

The herbs and feta are a mouthwatering combination and healthy too. It's so important to include fresh greens in your diet everyday. The chlorophyll can help cleanse toxins out of your system and the minerals help nourish all of your cells.

2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
1/4 cup scallions , sliced
2 mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
Optional: 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
Optional: top with salsa

Spray a non stick pan . Add eggs and top with remainder of ingredients. Turn over 1/2 omelet when done.




Add grated cheese for some extra substance
                                        
          
                              Top with salsa
                        Another fast and easy, yet healthy and low in calories gluten free snack or part of a meal.

  5. Love this post--love this idea. How often, when pressed for time, do I choose a handful of this and that as lunch? More often that I'll say. And hoe often is the "this and that" some kind of junk food? Same answer! But this in seven minutes--it takes me that long to root through the pantry for junk. Would much rather have this wonderful omelet.

    Thank you for linking with See Ya In the Gumbo!
