Champion Nutrition Recipe of the Week - Steamer Bag Omelet!

About this time every year, I go through my "if I eat one more bite of oatmeal I will explode!!!" phase. Today is May 29th, and it's official... my love affair with oatmeal is over. At least until the Fall ;-) I've returned to a former love - the microwave omelet (remember this one?). It's fast, it's easy, it's easily dressed up. And it's yummy. You can toss nearly anything into an omelet, and using the steamer bag method - it's portable, too!

Spinach & Mushroom Microwave Omelet

1 steamer bag (I use the Ziploc brand)
1 whole egg
2 egg whites (or as many as your diet calls for)
2 mushrooms, sliced
1 small pepper, chopped
1/4 cup baby spinach, chopped
1 Tbsp chopped onion
2 shakes Mrs Dash Garlic & Herb

Place all ingredients into the steamer bag and gently shake/mix it up (careful of the steamer slit in the bag - you'll end up with egg all over you if you're too rough with the shaking, lol!).
Pack into cooler or if you're ready to cook now...
Microwave on high for 4 minutes. Allow to rest 1 minute, then check the bag - if it's runny, continue to microwave in 1 minute intervals.
When cooked, slide out the omelet onto your plate and enjoy!

TIP: If you've got room for carbs - add black beans and drizzle with taco sauce. Need more protein? Add some chopped chicken breast (cooked). Add taco sauce, Sriracha or salsa for a bit of heat. For you gals on competition diet - this recipe was one of my favorite meal-6 solutions! Low cal, but filling and full of nutrients!
