  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 teaspoon low-fat milk

  • teaspoon salt, divided

  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • ½ cup arugula

  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

  • ¼ avocado, diced

  • 2 tablespoons plain whole-milk Greek yogurt


  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.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
