This a  tasty and a super fast meal to make on the go! A great low calorie breakfast recipe for weight loss.

THINGS YOU WILL NEED

– Raw spinach (a handful)
– 3 eggs
– Papaya
– Salsa roja
– sea salt

Salsa roja recipe:

– 6 large tomatoes, red and ripe
– 2 -4 serrano peppers, depending on how spicy you like it
– 3 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
– 3 tablespoons chicken bouillon
– 1/3 cup water (preferably the cooking liquid)
– 1/4 onion, roughly chopped
– 2 tablespoons olive oil

Put the whole tomatoes in a saucepan with the peppers. Cover with water and bring to a boil. Simmer gently until the tomatoes are a little soft but not falling apart for about 5 minutes. Drain, but reserve 1/3 cup of the cooking liquid THIS IS IMPORTANT! Mix the bouillon into the 1/3 cup reserved cooking liquid and pour into the jar of a blender. Add your garlic, blend until the garlic until it is throughout the liquid. Add the tomatoes, peppers to the blender jar, and blend for a few seconds. Don’t over blend. It should have a rough texture. Heat the olive oil in the bottom of a sauce pan. Add the chopped onion and saute a couple of minutes. Add the sauce from the blender. Cook on high heat! Make sure to stir it from time to time scraping the bottom of the pan until the sauce is reduced. Taste it and add salt if necessary. Sea salt is the healthiest.

Recipe for the omelet:

In a bowl crack open your eggs, throw away 2 of the yolks and leave one. Stirr it up and pour it in a PAM sprayed non stick frying pan. Let one side of the omelet cook, add the spinach. Then fold it in half and keep cooking until it’s ready. You can add the salsa roja with the spinach or after. It depends on you. The salsa already has salt so you don’t need to add any to the omelet. Slice a few pieces of papaya and enjoy :)

P.S You can also add reduced fat skim milk cheese to your omelets. Just make sure to have the serving size and nothing extra so you don’t stack on the calories!!! And you can have a slice of wheat toast just don’t add too much butter or other condiments to it. Remember, everything you add is only adding calories to your healthy meal and will defeat the purpose of making this.
