Egg whites are a great way to add protein to your diet, and they’re especially beneficial for bodybuilders. They’re basically pure protein and simple with very little flavor, they can be seasoned to anyone’s desired taste. Eggs are also known for providing a host of essential nutrients, including choline, vitamins A, B12, D and E, and minerals like zinc and iron.
This egg white omelette is also packed with veggies. Veggies are an important part of any bodybuilder’s diet, as they provide essential nutrients like fiber, vitamins, and minerals. They’re also low in calories and can help you stay on track with your dieting goals.
Finally, this egg white omelette is topped with goat cheese. Goat cheese is a great source of protein, calcium, and zinc. It’s also a good source of healthy fats, which are important for bodybuilders. Fat is essential for the body, and it’s especially important for those who are trying to build muscle because it provides energy and supports hormone production.
- Egg whites: I used egg whites that have been separated from whole eggs, but you could use egg whites from a carton as well.
- Mushrooms: I used white mushrooms, but any type of mushroom will work.
- Spinach: I used fresh spinach, but you can use frozen spinach if that’s what you have on hand. You could also use kale or another leafy green.
- Bell pepper: I used green bell pepper, but any color will do. You can also swap bell peppers for other veggies such as zucchini, tomatoes, or broccoli.
- Goat Cheese: I used soft goat cheese, but you could also use crumbled goat cheese or feta cheese. If you don’t like goat cheese, you can use another kind such as cheddar or parmesan.
How To Make High Protein Bodybuilding Omelette With Egg Whites
Chop veggies and heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add the veggies and cook over medium heat until they’re soft. Feel free to use olive oil or cooking spray to saute the veggies.
Whisk together the egg whites and set aside.
Remove the sauteed veggies from the pan, clean it out, and add the egg whites, making sure to fill the whole pan. On one side of the pan, top the egg whites with veggies and goat cheese.
Once the base of the egg has hardened, use a spatula to flip one side of the omelette on top of the veggies and cheese, creating a half-moon. Let cook for 1-2 minutes, then flip over.
Remove from pan and enjoy! Feel free to add any toppings like more cheese, sauces, avocado, or herbs at this time.
