Skinny on Make Ahead Western Omelet Muffins
I used finely chopped ham, green onion, red bell pepper and reduced fat cheddar cheese in these omelet muffins, but they’re easy to customize to suit your likes and what you have on hand.
Using half whole eggs and half egg whites keeps them lower in fat and calories while still getting the health benefits of the yolks.

If you’re a Weight Watcher, you’re most likely familiar with Gina and her blog Skinnytaste. Gina turned to Weight Watchers when she wanted to lose a few pounds. Though she liked the program it was a struggle to find enough tempting recipes to help her stay on track and satisfy her family. She started Skinnytaste when she began successfully “skinny-fying” her favorite meals.
Her Skinnytaste Cookbook features 150 amazing recipes that are light on calories, big on flavor. With 100 stunning photographs and detailed nutritional information for every recipe it’s an incredible resource of deliciously satisfying meals that every home cook will love.
I’ve already flagged dozens of recipes I can’t wait to try.
