Sante Fe Omelet

Eggs are quite possibly my favorite food to eat. I have them almost every morning in all sorts of ways but one: Sunny Side up. The thought of raw egg just makes my stomach turn. But my favorite egg dish: Omelets.
And for a low carb diet, eggs are your best friend.

I was craving black beans this morning. It was weird. I couldn't stop think about hot to make them for breakfast. Then it came to me: a Tex/mex style omelet!
 What you need for this delicious bad boy:
1 whole egg
2 egg whites
1 tbsp Olive oil butter
1/4 cup black beans (Maybe even less)
1/4 cup onion, pepper and garlic mix
Cheese
Braum's Jalapeno Dip
Salsa

Pretty sure you know how to make an omelet so I won't delve into the details. I just need to make a quick shout out to Braum's. Do you have a Braum's in your area? I LOOOOOOVE them!
Their ice cream is so inexpensive and delicious, the sherbert isn't that many calories and it's always soft. I love their milk, don't get me started on their waffle cones, but have you tried their Jalapeno dip??
I just recently discovered this dip at my husbands grandparents house when they had us over for Easter. They had it with cool ranch doritos (Which was like spicy heaven in your mouth) but they go with everything! Carrots, celery, chips, recipes! AND It's only 60 calories and 2 carbs for 2TBSP and sometimes you really don't need that much. A little goes a long way!
Anyway, TRY IT!
So I spread some on top of my omelet along with salsa. 
SOOO good!

I try to have some fruit with my breakfast, today was oranges. 
Oranges are 70 calories, 0 fat, 3 carbs, and 1 Protein

And of course I can't function without my coffee. Today's flavor is Vanilla Maple. (YUMM) 
2 cups of Coffee is 69 calories with 2 tsp Lite Coffeemate creamer and 3 packets Splenda.

 Everything total is 479 calories, 23 total fat, 47 carbs and 32 protein.
