The Omelette.

Breakfast... the most skipped meal of the day. We've all heard it, AND we've all made excuses why we missed breakfast this morning.

Realistically though if you have time to make a cup of coffee you have time to make this protein powered breakfast extravaganza.

Walk in to the kitchen.
Place a frying pan on the stove (remembering to turn the stove on)
Add about a tablespoon of olive or canola oil to the pan.

Chop up a 1/4 handful of brown onion, a 1/4 of a capsicum (bell pepper) and 3 mushrooms.

Toss all that in to the pan (which by now should be hot)
Crack some pepper and salt (go easy on the salt) over the frying vegetables.
Separate 4 eggs and discard the yolks.
Give the vegetables a stir and immediately add the egg whites to the pan.
Moosh the whole shebang about with a spatula until the eggs are cooked.

Tip in to a bowl, grab a fork and eat.

The whole process takes less than 5 minutes.

"Oooh but eggs are full of cholesterol...." I here you say.

The only part of an egg that contains any cholesterol is the yolk, and you ditch them. The whites contain all kinds of goodies (none of which is cholesterol) and a whole stack of protein and next to no fat.

The above was what I ate, as with all the other recipes if you have a starting out weight of less than 90 kgs (200 pounds) then perhaps you might consider reducing the egg count to 3.

Don't reduce the vegetables though... they are your friend.
