Healthy Recipe: Post Workout Meal – Spinach, Mozzarella, and Pepper Omelet Sandwiches

Spinach, Mozzarella, and Pepper Omelet SandwichesIt’s not just what you eat before a workout that matters, it’s also what you eat after your workout! No matter what time of day you exercise, it’s important to refuel after your workout, and make sure that what you do eat also has a good mix of protein (which your muscles need to recover) and carbohydrates (which gives you post-workout energy). A good post workout meal goes a long way towards helping your body recover, as well as keep your weight loss program in check.

It’s best to eat within 30-60 minutes of your workout for the best results. Here’s a great recipe to help get you started!

Spinach, Mozzarella, and Pepper Omelet Sandwiches

  • 2 tablespoons fat-free milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 large egg whites
  • 3 large eggs
  • Dash of hot pepper sauce
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 cup finely diced red bell pepper
  • 3/4 cup prechopped onion
  • 4 sourdough English muffins, split
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups bagged baby spinach leaves

Preheat broiler.

Combine first 6 ingredients in a large bowl, and whisk until combined. Next, heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat and coat pan with cooking spray.

Add bell pepper and onion; sauté until tender. Reduce heat to medium. Pour egg mixture into pan; let egg mixture set slightly. Tilt pan; carefully lift edges of omelet with a spatula to allow uncooked portion to flow underneath cooked portion. Cook 3 minutes. Wrap handle of pan with foil; place pan under broiler.

Broil 1 minute or until set and lightly browned.

Arrange muffin halves in a single layer on a baking sheet. Sprinkle muffin halves evenly with cheese, and broil 1 minute or until cheese begins to brown.

Divide omelet into 4 portions; place 1 portion on bottom half of each muffin. Top evenly with spinach leaves; top with remaining muffin halves.
