Many months ago I came across an account of Instagram called The Holistic Ingredient. The wonderful lady behind it, Amy Crawford, also has a website and Facebook page under the same name and has published an e-book called “A Nourishing Kitchen”. I purchased it the day I came across it and have used it weekly in my meal planning, for breakfast, lunch, dinner and even snacks. Most of it is dairy, sugar and gluten free or has the option to be. It’s all clean, nourishing and (most importantly) freaking delicious.
Today I came home around lunch time and almost reached for the unhealthy box of Milo cereal hubby has on top of the fridge.
I was hungry, O hadn’t had a morning nap (read: devil child) and I had limited time to get something ready for lunch. Magically, I convinced myself to re-consider my options and I opened up the Nourishing Kitchen e-book and decided to give the Sweet Omelette a go.
Fact: I’ve always hated eggs. I know how good they are for you, but I could just never enjoy them, no matter how they were cooked. Anywho, I whipped 2 eggies up, following the recipe, and wouldn’t you know… I ACTUALLY ENJOYED IT. This is definitely one way I can get in my eggs every week.
- 2 eggs
- 1 tbs pure maple syup
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- couple drops vanilla essence
I used my cake beaters to get all of the above ingredients nice and fluffy. If you’re strapped for time, just whisk away vigorously for a bit. It’ll still work. Pour the mixture into an omelette pan. I used a bit of coconut oil in mine. I then watched Jamie Oliver make an omelette on Youtube
… because being an egg-hater and omelette virgin, I had no idea what I was doing.
Once it was cooked, I added some plain CoYo and my raw berry chia jam
. It was amazing. Even my grumpy 1 year old enjoyed it (she is more into savory than sweet).
Try this recipe, especially if you hate eggs like me!
