Healthy Omelet Recipes You Haven't Tried Yet

In Defense of the Yolk

1 of 10

Omelets are making a comeback like you wouldn't believe, thanks to the verdict about the benefits of eating the yolk. As a registered dietitian, I 100 percent support including egg yolks as part of a balanced diet because of the nutrient choline found in them. Choline is crucial for not only maintaining a healthy metabolism and energy level, but it also promotes heart health. (Not to mention if you're pregnant or trying to conceive, it's essential for fetal brain development!) It's fascinating to think that in a two-egg omelet packed with dark leafy greens, you'll get over 325mg of choline—putting you at 60 percent of your daily needs. Try these recipes for the ultimate tasty, filling, and nutritious breakfast option.
