Nutrisystem Spotlight: What is a Womelet?Article posted in: Nutrisystem
When you want to power up your morning with a hearty breakfast, your top two options are eggs and waffles. We’ve made your choice even easier by bringing the best of both into one delicious meal: a womelet!
A womelet is a waffle made with our special egg batter, and it’s a popular new item on the Nutrisystem breakfast menu. The womelets look and taste like the waffles you love but they’re higher in protein and perfectly portioned for weight loss. Here’s why they make a delicious and satisfying addition to your morning routine!
We make both of our womelets using our special egg batter. It starts with real whole eggs, so you get lean protein to fuel your busy day. The special batter makes the womelets heartier and denser than standard waffles, but they still have a crusty outside and soft inside along with the nooks and crannies that help hold on to the toppings you add.
Two Tempting Flavors
You can choose from two different womelets, each with the flavors of a hot breakfast you’d order at your favorite waffle house. Both womelet varieties are simpler and faster to make than an omelet. They come out of a toaster, conventional or microwave oven hot and ready to eat in less than 10 minutes.
The Cheddar and Plant-Based Bacon Womelet features real cheese and the smoky taste of the breakfast meat. The bacon is made with plant-based ingredients, which means it’s just right for vegetarians and everyone else who wants to avoid saturated fats. The Savory Maple Womelet treats you to the flavor of maple syrup along with bits of the plant-based bacon, so you get salty and sweet tastes in every bite.
Weight Loss Solutions
Breakfast is an important meal when you’re trying to shed extra pounds because it sets the tone for the rest of your day. People who skip breakfast are more likely to be overweight, according to a study reported in the scientific journal, Nutrients.
Our womelets start you off with a good source of protein, which helps you feel full and energized when you’re done eating. The Cheddar and Plant-Based Bacon Womelet has 11 grams of protein and 210 calories per serving and the Savory Maple Womelet has 10 grams of protein and 220 calories. Both will keep you going strong until your next meal.
The womelets are ready to eat and delicious on their own, but you can amp up the taste and nutritional benefits with a variety of toppings. A tablespoon of sugar-free maple syrup or jelly counts as one Extra.
Even better, sweeten up your breakfast with a cup of your favorite fruit, such as sliced melons, peaches or bananas, or fresh or frozen berries (your choice). You can also spread unsweetened apple butter or apple sauce for a moist and sweet womelet. They’re all SmartCarbs, so you want to be sure you’re watching your portions sizes.
Give your breakfast a little more protein and healthy fats by topping the womelet with unsalted, dry-roasted walnuts, pecans or other nuts. Go for the trendy breakfast of avocado toast by mashing up the fruit and spreading it onto your womelet. You could even make a breakfast sandwich with an egg and low-sodium turkey bacon!
If you like to start your day with a little kick, sprinkle on hot sauce, hot pepper flakes or diced scallions. The spices are all Free Foods, so you can use as much of them as you like.
When choosing toppings, be sure to check portion sizes in the Nutrisystem Grocery Guide.
These womelets have quickly become a favorite of Nutrisystem members. But don’t just take our word for it! Check out these five-star reviews from verified buyers:
Cheddar & Plant-Based Bacon Womelet – Great new item, try it!
“I really liked this new item. While it was being toasted, the house smelled absolutely delicious. I really liked it. I put light syrup on it because I thought it was sweet but there is no need. You can eat it by itself as I loved the combination of the infused cheddar cheese and bacon. Kudos to Nutrisystem for introducing new products as I tend to get bored quickly with the same items.”
Savory Maple Womelet – Air Fryer Y’all
“Use an air fryer to crisp the womelet up and it is delicious. My favorite breakfast from Nutrisystem! I add a tiny bit of maple syrup.”
