Healthy Berry Omelette
This amazing recipe is taken from a wonderful book I discovered recently called: I Quit Sugar For Life, written by Sarah Wilson, which you can buy here
Now I havn’t quit sugar but I have drastically cut it down, plus have cut down carbohydrates, swim four times a week and taken up yoga, which I practice at home daily. This is my quest to not only improve my health issues, ie the chronic pain, but lose weight and get fit somehow. I joined the Lifestyle Spa where I found this book and took up yoga about two months ago and since then I have lost 9 lbs. This is an “oh my word” moment for me, because I have been trying to lose weight for years and being on medication it is incredibly hard as it makes you put on weight, the chronic pain makes you not want to move as a result you become unfit, out of condition and lose flexiblity, but I am ignoring all of that and managing to do things I havn’t for years! Hoooorah! I can even touch my toes now!
So enough about me, this book is wonderful, even if just taken from an information point of view, of which there is lots, not to mention incredible recipes.
I have made this meal twice now, the first time I had to get my taste buds around the egg and berry mixture and even with this initial “ohh this tastes different” I as you can see wolfed down the whole lot. Second time around I knew what to expect and could spend time enjoying it to it’s fullest and would recommend you give it a try, super easy to, to make as you will see.
Healthy Berry Omelette
- 1 – 2 tablespoons of rice malt syrup
- 1 tablespoon of butter
- 1 cup (150g) mixed berries (best fresh, can use frozen however)
- mascarpone or yoghurt of your choice
Separate the egg whites and yolk from each other. Whisk the syrup in to the yolk and beat the egg whites separately until they become thick and fluffy. Fold the egg white then in to the yolk and syrup mixture.Melt the butter in a 22 cm omelette pan over a low heat. Pour in the eggs and sprinkle the berries on top.
Cook on a low heat until the base shows it is a slightly golden colour then transfer this under the grill and brown lightly.
The omelette should then be firm but light.
Serve with yoghurt or mascarpone or if feeling very naughty ice cream.
As you can see it didn’t last long!
It’s a joy to share the healthy and or lovely things that I find. I hope you are having a wonderful weekend, Justine xx
