3 for 2 Eggcellent Weight Watchers Omelette Ideas | 2 SmartPoints Each!

I hope you’re not watching your cholesterol because it’s about to get real eggy up in here.

Aaaah Omelettes, WW Freestyle’s new breakfast BFF. Now that eggs are 0 points, I know I’m not the only one who tries to utilize them as much as possible. The results all across the board have been pretty creative, but there’s just something about omelettes that get me out of bed in the morning. Heck, I’m even eating one right now!

Even before since I started Weight Watchers I would try to eat eggs for breakfast as often as possible. They’re packed with so many benefits, especially for those looking to shed some pounds. Nutritionally, one large egg is about 78 calories, 6g of protein, 5g of fat and only .6g of carbohydrates (holy protein!) and because of their high amounts of essential amino acids, they have been known to speed up the metabolism. I don’t know about you, but I like the sound of that. Plus, according to Healthline, egg breakfasts have been shown to cause up to 65% greater weight loss over 8 weeks, so it’s safe to say Weight Watcher’s recent decision to make their point value 0 on their new Freestyle program was a great one! If you’d like to learn more about the power of egg, check out Jules Clancy’s article on eating eggs for breakfast here & Healthline’s article on eggs and weight loss here. 

So now that we’ve established that eggs, especially when consumed in the morning, are the real MVP, let’s get down to more important matters–how to spruce them up! Plain eggs are great accompaniments to many breakfast dishes, but I’m talking about main dish worthy eggs! I’m talking omelettes! Where the possibilities are endless and creativity is everything. So keep on reading for three SUPER simple omelette combos I’ve been loving in the morning. The good news? They’re 2 SmartPoints each and are made with ingredients you probably already have in your fridge.


Alyssa’s GO-TO Spinach, Mozzarella & Ham Omelette

Serves: 1 | SmartPoints: 2

This is the holy trinity of omelettes! An omelette staple, if I may. This time around, instead of using feta or a higher point cheese, try pulling apart a Weight Watchers cheese stick! One stick is only 1 SP, which is less than half of the other cheeses out there 🙂

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 eggs ( 0 SP)
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen spinach (0 SP)
  • 1 Weight Watchers Low Moisture Part Skim Mozzarella String Cheese pulled apart (1 SP)
  • 2 slices of Canadian bacon, diced (1 SP)
  • Garlic, salt & pepper to season (0 SP)

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Whisk eggs in small bowl.
  2. Spray a medium-sized pan with a 0 SP cooking spray, and drop in spinach and ham. Cook on a medium heat until spinach has wilted. If burning starts to occur, add a tiny bit of water to the pan.
  3. Pour the whisked eggs into the pan and spread to cover its entire bottom. Begin dropping in the pulled apart pieces of string cheese, in addition to seasonings.
  4. Once the 90% cooked, flip the omelette over into halves or thirds, let cook for another 30 seconds to a minute.

Loaded Primavera Omelette

Serves: 1 | SmartPoints: 2

This omelette is MEGA and the perfect way to enjoy all of Spring’s fresh veggies in the morning. Since this omelette is jam-packed, I recommend using 3 eggs to hold it all together, or 2 eggs with all other ingredients finely chopped. Don’t worry if it breaks! It tastes just as amazing.

INGREDIENTS

  • 3 eggs (0 SP)
  • 3 asparagus stalks, chopped (0 SP)
  • 1/4 cup zucchini, chopped (0 SP)
  • 1 tsp white onion, chopped (0 SP)
  • 3 cherry tomatoes, halved (0 SP)
  • 2 tbsp pecorino romano cheese (2 SP)
  • Garlic, salt & pepper to season (0 SP)

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Whisk eggs in small bowl.
  2. Spray a medium-sized pan with a 0 SP cooking spray, and drop in asparagus, zucchini, onions, and tomatoes. Add a small amount of water to the pan to prevent burning, and cook on a medium heat.
  3. Once the veggies are cooked, pour the whisked eggs into the pan and spread to cover its entire bottom. Sprinkle the pecorino romano on top, along with other seasonings.
  4. When the omelette is about 90% cooked, flip it over into halves or thirds, and let cook for another 30 seconds to a minute.

Poppin’ Cauliflower Omelette

Serves: 1 | SmartPoints: 2

Sometimes we all just need a little kick in the morning. The great part about this omelette is that the heat level is adjustable, and the cheese balances out any poppin’ power you add!
