There’s not a better breakfast combination than eggs, veggies and cheese. These Waffle Omelettes are low carb and fit the bill!
Sure, you can scramble up a few eggs and throw in your favorite greens, but why not make them as waffles instead?
Yes, you can have waffles on the 17 Day Diet. They’re loaded with yummy, healthy ingredients!
Community member, Tracy P., loaned me her Waffle Omelette recipe and her photos and I wanted to share her latest creation with you! This is a great meal for breakfast or you could switch things up a bit and serve them for lunch or dinner!
This recipe is super versatile. You can either use the vegetable ingredients listed below or you may use anything you have on hand that needs to be used soon.
In fact, Tracy had leftover asparagus from the night before and she used this, along with parmesan cheese, in one of her waffle creations.
Oh, and a special tip from Tracy is to make sure you chop your veggies pretty small. This will help them cook in the waffle iron.
As you can see, the sky’s the limit. Find a flavor combo that you especially love and go for it.
Or better yet, experiment with ingredients you haven’t tried before and you may find a new favorite.
Check out Tracy’s waffles cooking below…. YUM!!

Can I Have Waffle Omelets on the 17 Day Kickstart Diet?
If you happen to be on the 17 Day Kickstart Diet, you can definitely enjoy these yummy waffle omelets! However, you’ll have to wait until the 4-Day Soak Up Phase when eggs are allowed.
Plus, you’ll want to skip the cheese until Day 10 when cheese is allowed during the 10-Day Stabilize Phase.
If you’re not familiar with what foods are allowed during each phase, make sure you check out the 17 Day Kickstart Diet Food List.
Are Waffle Omelets Keto Friendly?
Yes! These are Keto friendly, too!
Have you heard of the Keto Chaffle? Well, this is considered the OG version (without as much cheese) and has been around quite a long time.
So if you’re Keto, dig in!

can I drink almond milk on this diet? I just started and having only smoothies for breakfast really makes me shakey and hungry about 2 hours later.
Hi Cheryl. Unsweetened almond milk is approved Cycle 3. If you’re feeling shaky after your smoothie, make sure you have enough protein and fiber in your smoothie!
