Easy, pleasy breakfast...

Veggie Omelet Bowl with Salsa
I hate making breakfast on weekday morns, so tend to eat the same (easy) thing over and over.  It used to be a toasted bagel with pepper jack or cream cheese (too many points the way I was doing it), them it was cream of whet with a touch of Splenda (low in points but BORING).  But now I think I have found the answer, a breakfast that is easy, tasty, and low in points.  AND I've been eating these for a few weeks now and haven't grown bored, plus plus.  Keep chopped veggies in the fridge and this come together in a snap.

Omelet Bowl with Salsa

1 large handful of chopped mixed veg (this one has onion, green bell pepper, and halved grape tomatoes)
salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 cup egg whites, from a carton
1/4 cup 2% milk cheese shreds (I use Sargento Mexi-blend or Aldi sharp cheddar)
1 heaping tablespoon (or two) of your favorite salsa

Place you veggies in in a microwave safe bowl, season with salt and pepper, and nukerate on high for one minute.  Add the egg whites and cook an additional minute and a half.  Sprinkle on the cheese and cook for 10 or 15 seconds to melt the cheese.  Top with salsa and enjoy.

WW PointsPlus value:  3 points as made. 
While I prefer mine veggie, a small amount of lean diced ham or bacon adds only one point.  You can add two slices of whole wheat/grain bread if desired for an additional 3 or 4 points, depending on the brand.

  1. I'm bad at making a creative (but it has to be easy) breakfast for myself. Looks like you hit it, Mary!
