Food. It's what's for breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner, snack. Repeat.

It seems that my blog is turning into a food blog these days. Due to this, my appetite is out of control. I'm trying to be smart about it by only allowing healthy foods around me, but a few (cookies!) exceptions throw me off from time to time.

So last night as I was waiting for Maddie and Autumn to show up for our 7 miler, I found myself browsing my new cookbook and came across a recipe for an egg-white omelette with goat cheese and salsa. And as you would have it, I had ALL of the ingredients at home. It was out of this world good. Success.

Now, go home and make one for yourself. You won't regret it.

1/2 cup egg whites (from about 4 eggs)
Coarse salt and ground pepper
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 heaping tablespoon crumbled goat cheese
2 to 3 tablespoons salsa (Erika note: I used spicy pico de gallo and I think it was a magic ingredient)

In a medium bowl, whisk egg whites with 1 tablespoon water; season with coarse salt and ground pepper.

Heat olive oil in an 8-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add egg whites to skillet; cook until nearly set, using a flexible heatproof spatula to repeatedly pull in sides of omelet to allow uncooked egg to run underneath, 1 to 2 minutes.

Sprinkle crumbled goat cheese and prepared salsa over the top. Gently slide omelet onto serving plate, folding it over by tipping skillet slightly.


  1. That sounds so awesome! I'm starving right now, too!

  2. When can I expect that to be put on my table?
