  1. Beat eggs with milk and a pinch of salt in a small bowl. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a small nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the egg mixture and cook until the bottom is set and the center is still a bit runny, 1 to 2 minutes. Flip the omelet over and cook until set, about 30 seconds more. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Toss arugula with the remaining 1 teaspoon oil lemon juice in a small bowl. Top the omelet with avocado, yogurt, the arugula and the remaining pinch of salt.

yes I will make again for sure. I used one egg and one measure of egg substitute like Egg Beaters. I added a pinch of herbs like thyme and I added a few tablespoons of very mild green chili salsa made with tomatillos on the top just to add a little flavor; only added about 10 calories but worth it!
