To whip up your omelet, you’ll need to grab a small pan and set it to medium-high. Pour in your olive oil and once it’s hot, add in the diced sweet potato and cool until it’s soft. Next, whip the pan clean and coat in a nonstick spray. Pour in your egg whites, cover the pan, and cook for about two to three minutes. Top half of the egg with sweet potato and black beans, then fold over the empty half to cover the toppings. Finish off the omelet with cilantro, avocado and sriracha and you’re ready to go!
