How to make omelets even healthier for you
CINCINNATI (WKRC) - It may be hard to believe, but a week from this Friday is Good Friday. That means Easter is close by.
Therefore, you should know a few great ways to make that Easter breakfast, or maybe your everyday breakfast, even better for you.
Think of putting the ingredients in a Greek Salad, not just in the salad for lunch, but maybe in the omelet for breakfast.
Pete, who runs “Sofia's” on the corner of Eighth and Main, says while most people want meat in their morning omelet, veggies are a healthy and tasty way to go.
His favorite veggies for flavor are tomatoes, onions, green peppers and the Greek secret of feta cheese.
Eggs are more for your body than they are cracked up to be. They are reliable sources of iron and protein.
The yolks also have choline, a nutrient needed by your cells, metabolism and liver.
So, no matter how you eat them this Easter, adding an omelet or two might be “eggs-actly” what you should eat.
The reason eggs used to get a bad rap is due to the cholesterol, but now it’s known that total fat is more important to reduce heart disease risk than just cholesterol.
