Sour Cream & Onion Omelette

Sour cream and onion is my favorite flavor combo. But when I started learning more about the food I was eating, I discovered that my beloved sour cream and onion chips were not doing me any favors.

This omelette recipe curbs my cravings by 110% and is a great low-carb, high-protein and moderate-fat breakfast. For an even lower fat option, use only egg whites and leave out the cheese or swap it for low fat cheese, mozzarella, provolone or laughing cow cream cheese!

A couple of simple ingredients can change your average, everyday omelette into something super unique and flavorful.
