With food prices on the rise it’s imperative that we need to be more creative with our meals.
Generally a LCHF diet is more expensive considering the quality of your foods, but with a little bit of planning you can stretch your ingredients further and still enjoy a healthy balanced meal.
Why not try a meat-less breakfast every now and again. This feta and caramelized onion omelette is gorgeous. And if you struggle to incorporate carbohydrates into your breakfast like me then this meal is right up your alley. Yes it sounds ridiculous I know. Most people find it challenging keeping their carb consumption low, I on the other hand struggle to have a balanced breakfast with the correct macros!
I often need to remind myself NOT to live from protein alone and because I normally skip lunch I sometimes find myself a little off-balance especially on days followed with a heavy workout.
This very simple breakfast gives you a beautifully balanced ratio of fats, protein and carbs with 302 Calories per omelette and 6 gram Net Carbs. The macro breakdown equals to: Fat (78%) – Protein (17%) – Carbohydrates (5%).
If you don’t follow a low carb diet you can still enjoy this meal by simply using 4 whole eggs and 8 egg whites. Replace the full fat feta cheese with reduced fat feta cheese and use your olive oil sparingly, now add your carbohydrate of choice such as 1 slice of whole wheat toast and Bob’s your uncle.
12 large eggs
2 onions sliced
Extra virgin olive oil
100 g Full fat Feta cheese cubed
Salt and pepper to taste
Cube your Feta cheese and set aside. Caramelize the onions and set aside.
For the omelette
The secret to a fluffy omelette is the water added to the egg mixture.
