Healthy Omelet with Spinach and Cheese

This Low Calorie Omelet with Spinach and Cheese is just 204 calories and has over 17 grams of protein!. The low calorie omelette recipe calls for Swiss cheese, but it works with any cheese you like. We prefer “white cheeses” like feta, Swiss, or goat cheese in this vegetarian omelet recipe though.

Healthy Omelet with Spinach and Cheese Meal Prep and Storage

Meal Prep: Unless you are making an overnight oats recipe or a baked oatmeal casserole, meal prepping is not ideal with oats. But you can get all the dry ingredients together and all the wet items together and store them separately so that it’s extra easy to cook.
Storage: Any leftovers can be stored for later. Store in the fridge for up to 5 days. Not great in the freezer, but you can store single servings for up to 2 weeks in the freezer.
Reheating: To reheat, microwave for 1-2 minutes until warmed through.
