Ricotta Arugula Omelette

Perfect for aΒ Monday morning, omelettes may seem a bit intimidating at first but a properly sized non-stick pan is the key to a well-made and pretty looking omelette.

Make sure you’re using an 8-inch pan for this 2 egg omelette or a 10-inch pan for 3 egg omelettes.

Omelettes provide a nice protein boost with low calories provided you keep the cheese at a minimum.
