High-Protein Zucchini Omelet for One
This easy High-Protein Zucchini Omelet, for one, is a healthy breakfast or lunch. Over 36 grams of protein and 1 cup of veggies!
I’ve been prioritizing protein and vegetables, making it a point to add one cup of veggies to every meal. It’s a great way to get your daily fiber – I aim for at least 25 grams each day. Omelets are such an easy way to achieve this goal! This vegetarian omelet has a whole cup of zucchini and a mix of egg and egg whites for extra-lean protein.
