Is Tomato Besan Omelette Healthy?

Being high in fibre, it keeps you full for longer and thus may aid in weight loss. Besan is also said to promote overall gut health. As for tomatoes, this juicy veggie is full of vitamins and antioxidants that benefit you in many ways. They can boost immunity and improve your digestion.
