This food post will be revisiting one of my all time favorite meals…
The Omelette … I’ve posted about them several times and when my friend Joel Spencer posted his delicious looking omellete pic… I knew what I was having for lunch.
Note: Click on Pics to Enlarge…. You will be glad you did. :)
The picture to the right was my Primal Lunch Omelette.
1/2 cup of Spinach (or your favorite greens)
1/4 cup of tomato (chopped or diced)
4 strips of bacon .. more or less :)
1) Fry Bacon in a black cast iron skillet (any pan will do but I love my skillet), I always cook a skillet full and snack on the bacon while cooking. :) :)
2) Cook your spinach or greens in the Bacon Drippings. WOW does this make them so GOOD! This spinach was frozen, so I emptied the bag in the skillet, added a cup of water and let simmer for about 5 mins.
3) Dice or Chop a Medium Tomato - my wife had used 1/2 a can of tomato the other day so I decided to finish them. Originally, I was going to use mushrooms but when I saw the opened can of tomato… my decision was made. :)
Below is the ‘filling’ of my omelette.
4) Cooking the eggs – I rinsed and wiped out my skillet with a wire brush to make sure there was nothing sticking to the skillet.
Next I added a heaping tablespoon of Coconut Oil and after it was heated properly I added four (4) beaten eggs, tilt the skillet as needed to evenly distribute the eggs.
a) Sometimes I add cream to the eggs, this time I did not….cream makes them fluffier. I like them with or without.
b) CRUCIAL: Make sure you pan is ‘clean’ , nothing sticking and make sure you have enough coconut oil, butter or fat. A well coated skillet makes this so EASY!
5) Add the Filling to 1/3 of the omelette and then fold over.
6. Below is the Cut Away View… is that NOT gorgeous!!
This meal like all of my meals on these pages are TRULY diabetic friendly.
Please do NOT listen to foods offered up by the American Diabetes Association … their grain based meals cause blood sugar spikes and require either drugs, insulin or BOTH to knock down the spikes.
This meal was very low carb (sub 10g) and VERY nutritious, delicious and was very sating.
Start THRIVING… and not just surviving!
