If you are wanting a low fat diet, then this is the way to go - whilst I prefer using the whole egg, using only the whites make this recipe healthy, and with little calories.

It is another recipe that I used to make when I was on my 5/2 diet which I went on for the health benefits and not to lose weight.  I often had a problem finding things to eat as a main meal as total for the day was only 500 calories, which is not a lot!

As this is an omelette, there are many other variations that you could use as a filling - it just depends on your imagination as to what you could add with the tuna, however tuna is a versatile and healthy fish, and it goes well with many other ingredients.

If you are really concerned about calories, you could use less cheese in this recipe and add a bit of salt instead.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 20 minutes
Makes: 1 serving

3 extra large egg whites
110 g boiled potatoes
185g tin of low fat Tuna in spring water

Optional items:

2 tsp tomato sauce
10 gr onions, fried slightly
Low fat cheese cut into chunks or pieces
Bit of English spinach
Few chives
Salt & pepper, if required

Boil the potato in water with the skin left on.

Beat the egg whites until they form soft peaks and have thickened.

Fry the onion in a pan which has been sprayed with oil, and then put the onion aside on a plate.

Pour the egg mixture into the same pan and gently cook this until they are slightly brown on the bottom, and almost cooked through - this will take about 5-6 minutes.

Next slice the potato into round chips.

Sprinkle the tuna, onion, cheese, spinach, chives, and potato slices evenly over the omelette.

Put 2 tsp of the tomato sauce over this, and fold the omelette in half on itself.

This is a high protein, low calorie meal/lunch as it only has just under 300 calories which is great if you are on the 5/2 diet as many people are now.
