March’s Healthy Recipe – Protein-packed Omelette

A classic omelette is such a quick and easy meal which can be eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner. This protein-packed option is lower in cholesterol as it uses fewer yolks than your usual recipe.

Ingredients – Serves 2

  • 2 whole eggs and 3 egg whites
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1 red pepper, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 2 spring onions white and green parts kept separate and finely chopped
  • a few slices of wafer-thin extra-lean ham, shredded
  • 25g reduced-fat mature cheddar
  • Chopped fresh tomato

Method

  1. Whisk the eggs and egg whites well in a bowl with some seasoning and set aside. Heat the oil in a medium non-stick frying pan and cook the pepper for 3-4 minutes. Add the white parts of the spring onions and cook for a further 1 minute. Pour in the eggs and cook over a medium heat until almost completely set.
  2. Sprinkle on the ham and cheese and fold the omelette in half. Continue to cook to your liking (less time for a soft and fluffy centre, or a little longer if you prefer it completely set) . Serve straight from the pan with the green part of the spring onion sprinkled on top, the chopped tomato and some wholemeal toast or a small jacket potato if you’re hungry.

To make matters even worse we’ve now got Pancake Day looming, to bring us even more temptation – oh dear! Fret not though, it is possible to eat pancakes without giving up all your good intentions! This is how to make a quick, healthy panacake: Continue reading “Try our Healthy Pancake Recipe”
