About Me

I'm a 35 year old, happily married, Christian, stay at home mother to four children. I am overweight by about 77 pounds so I decided to do something about it. I'm counting my calories! I created this blog to help others with yummy recepes and ideas on how they can eat healthy as well.

Man-Sized Low-Calorie Breakfast Omelet (Biggest Loser Cookbook page 48)

This omlet is so filling! And if for some reason you don't find it filling, it's only 213 calories so you can still add some fruit to your breakfast. This and many other recepes have the three or four colors of bell pepper. I realize it can get expensive buying them so you can always substitue just using green pepper for them. I find it cheaper to buy them in the three or four packs..and trust me they have different flavors. Worth the price!

1 uncooked Biggest Winner Breakfast Sausage patty (page 51), crumbled
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup sliced mussrooms (you can use canned if you don't have fresh)
1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
1/4 cup chopped yellow bell pepper
1/4 cup orange bell pepper
1/2 cup Cheese and Chive Egg Beaters (I can't find this flavor so I use Southwest or Plain Egg Beaters)
1 wedge (3/4 oz) Laughing Cow Light Garlic & Herb cheese, chopped
Salt, to taste
Ground black pepper, to taste

Set a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat until it's hot enough to sizzle water on it. Spray with cooking spray. Place sausage, onion, mushrooms, and bell peppers in the pan. Cook, stirring occassionally, for 4-6 minutes, or until the sausage is no longer pink and the veggies are tender.  Remove from the pan. Cover and set aside to keep warm.

Mist the pan again with cooking spray. Set over medium heat. Add the Egg Beaters. Cook, lifting the edges with a spatula as they start to set and tipping the pan for uncooked Egg Beaters to run underneath, for 2-3 minutes, or until almost set. With a spatula, flip the omlet.  Scatter the cheese evenly over half of the egg mixture.  Top with the veggies you set aside.  Fold the omlet in half. Cook for about 1 minute, or until cheese melts. Transfer to a serving plate. Season with salt and pepper (if desired).
