Courtesy of MilkPEP


2 tablespoons olive oil

1 large egg

2 large egg whites

3 tablespoons fat free milk 

1/2 beefsteak tomato, sliced 

1/4 cup low fat shredded mozzarella 

1 tablespoon fresh basil, chopped

1 (8-ounce) glass of milk 


Heat olive oil in a large nonstick pan over medium heat. Beat eggs and 3 tablespoons milk together in a small bowl until well mixed.


Pour egg mixture into heated pan, swirling the pan until eggs cover the bottom. Allow the eggs to set and no visible liquid remains, about 2 -3 minutes.


After the eggs have set, arrange the tomatoes, cheese and basil on one side of the eggs. Using a spatula, carefully fold omelet in half, bringing the egg portion over the filling. Remove omelet from pan and serve with remaining 8-ounce glass of milk and enjoy.
