Egg White Omelet with Spinach

in Breakfast, Phase 2 Recipes

We all know the original hCG protocol has two meals per day–generally lunch and dinner.  But sometimes I really want breakfast.  On the days that I eat something substantial, like this omelet, I usually skip lunch, so that my calories are in line.  It’s not in the recipe, but I love to season my omelet with Truffle Salt.  I got mine at the Savory Spice Shop here in town, but I also found some online.  Next time I’ll order it because it was much more expensive in the store!

It would be great if you could put the calorie content next to each ingredient … by doing so you would save ALL of your readers from going through the trouble!

You got it, Kim. I will work on it this week.

This has been my biggest struggle, I’m 10 days in to phase 2 and I crave breakfast foods in the morning but I’m not a huge spinach fan can I use some think else like mushrooms or bell pepper?

Tiffany, try it and see what it does to your weight. I eat peppers on P2, but I haven’t tried mushrooms. Maybe some chicken?

My dr let’s me have a protein shake, made with water…
I use one that works great, it’s only 100 calories with 2 gr carbs..
Maybe less that I use water instead of the milk.

That’s very similar to the one I use, Kassandra. It works great for me too.

No chicken to the omelet bcuz the eggs themselves are a replacement to eating meat! You’ll practically eat your lunch in dinner in one sitting if u add chicken to the eggs. spinach * fennel * celery * cabbages * chard * white, red & yellow onions * tomatoes * asparagus * beet greens * Red Radishes * lettuce of any kind * cucumbers are what you should stick to on this diet

Hi Eve, I didn’t mean chicken in the omelet–I meant instead of (I think!) LOL!
