Chicken, Ham and Vegie Omelette
- 3 organic (whole) eggs
- 10 grams full-fat cream, organic
- ¼ cup diced ham off the bone
- ¼ cup chopped leftover chicken
- ¼ cup chopped mix vegetables. Mushrooms, tomato, capsicum and green beans all work well
- Organic butter, 5-10 grams
- Cup of rocket
Whip eggs and cream with a fork. Add some pink or grey salt and some black pepper.
Add your chopped vegies, ham and chicken. Stir through.
Heat butter in a pan until it is very hot. Add whipped egg mix – it should fluff up and cook within seconds.
Move pan around so the mix coats it evenly. Cook on a moderate heat for 60-90 seconds, until the bottom seems quite well cooked.
Use a spatula to carefully lift and flip your omelette. Cook for about 30 seconds on the second side, and then use the spatula to fold in half.
Serve on fresh rocket.
Did you know?
Many people find that varying protein in the morning can dramatically affect their energy and food choices for the remainder of the day. Chicken often builds greater energy than eggs, and red meat seems to be even better! The point is not to eat meat every morning, but simply to avoid getting stuck in a rut of eating eggs day in and day out – and to test what works for you.
This omelette is a great ‘bridge’ to stepping away from eggs and trying real meat for breaky. If it works for you, maybe try just plain old leftover chicken and a few nuts on another day. Either way you go, protein is the key for meal one!
