Easy Cheese Omelette

Omelettes have a reputation for being tricky, but they’re really not! This cheese omelette is quick, simple & tastes amazing. It’s a great source of protein and only has about 365 calories, so it’s very diet-friendly and perfect for a light meal, with perhaps a salad on the side. Omelettes are never boring because you can add any fillings you like. Vegetables are a fantastic, low-calorie way to enhance your omelette: try throwing in a handful of spinach, asparagus, tomato, mushrooms or peppers. Or get a bit fancy with some shredded chicken, shrimp … just about anything really, with the possible exception of Nutella (though I can’t say it hasn’t crossed my mind!
