This low-calorie bacon omelet is loaded with flavor, but not calories! If you have decided to try and eat a healthier diet, you may have automatically figured that both bacon and omelets would have no place in your diet plan

This recipe for a delicious low-calorie bacon omelet uses a few little tricks to make this omelet lean, healthy, and delicious. Lean turkey bacon is one of the calorie savers as turkey bacon has far less fat and calories than typical bacon. Also, caramelized onions make this bacon omelet hard to beat. A couple of low-calorie egg white in place of some of the full eggs saves even more fat and calories.

Make up one of these healthy omelets, and serve it with whole grain toast and fresh fruit for a full brunch, lunch, or breakfast.
