An important part of getting the Food 4 Weeks eating plan right is a good breakfast. This recipe is a nice one that provides a good amount of protein and omega 3 fats. Using a filling of your choice means you can get your necessary veg in as well as add some variety to your breakfast meaning you can use this easy option a few times a week without getting bored. Before adding your filling you will get 280 calories, 5 g carbohydrate, 18 g protein and 19 g fat. The fat content is high due in large to the lilnseed but does provide roughly 6 g of the omega 3 alpha linolenic acid and 5,5 g of the monounsaturated fat oleic acid.
- 2 large eggs
- splash (1/4 cup) of milk
- 1 Tbsp linseed/flaxseed
- salt and pepper to taste
In a mixing bowl whisk together these ingredients. “Spray-and-cook” a frying pan and heat over a medium heat. Pour the ingredients into the pan, stir and then let set for a few minutes. Meanwhile heat the grill in your oven and pop your omelette under it for 2-3 minutes. This will allow the top to set quickly too. Add your filling of choice, fold over to close and serve.
My best fillings:
Rocket, tomato and cottage cheese
Spinach and mushroon
Salmon, chives and parsley
All of these are low fat, you only need a little protein if using at all (i.e. cottage cheese/salmon) and a big helping of your choice of veg or herbs.
