Looking for another idea for a quick and healthy breakfast / dinner? Omelets are one of the best solutions for anybody with a busy life-style. I've got plenty recipes for omelets and this one is great for potassium boost (65% RDA!) - the right level of potassium is very important for our body to work well while it's trying to lose fat.

  3. Pour the eggs evenly in a hot pan greased with ghee. Don't rush it and don't try to cook it fast or the omelet will end up being too crispy and dry. Use a spatula to bring in the egg from the sides towards to centre for the first 30 seconds. Cook for another minute or two.
    Note: Make sure you don't cook the omelet for too long. The desired texture should be soft, fluffy and not too juicy. |Keto Omelet Wrap with Salmon & Avocado
  4. Slide the omelet onto a plate and spoon the cheese spread all over. |Keto Omelet Wrap with Salmon & Avocado
  5. Add the salmon, avocado, chopped spring onion and fold into a wrap. |Keto Omelet Wrap with Salmon & Avocado

Why eggs are so good for us…

Eggs are one of the super foods. Choline contained in eggs is an essential nutrient for cardiovascular and brain function that prevents the accumulation of cholesterol and fat in the liver. Sadly, eggs have gained a bad reputation for causing heart-related diseases. However, according to the Harvard Medical School Guide to Healthy Eating:

"No research has ever shown that people who eat more eggs have more heart attacks than people who eat few eggs."

In fact, eggs are loaded with vitamins and are a brilliant source of protein, which ranks as the highest in quality. They also contain lutein, which is a carotenoid important for eye health. When possible, get free-range eggs or eggs enriched with Omega-3. And for all those trying to lose weight, eggs will help you feel fuller for longer and are therefore great for fat loss!

Hey this is a great recipe! I wanted to note one thing, 1 tbsp of butter is called for in the ingredient list but is not present in the instructions, I am assuming it just gets dumped in to the pan before the eggs, would this be correct?

Thank you for spotting that Leo, yes, that's correct!

What about people suspecting or battling Hashimoto's? Isn't this an autoimmune condition and doesn't the autoimmune protocol exclude eggs?

Reply

Hi Ana, there are several low-carb diet approaches. I personally don't have an issue with eggs and I do have Hashi's myself. As far as I know, the AIP protocol helps discover the problematic foods apart from its healing properties so it always comes down to individual needs.

I have just posted it in our LCHF diabetes group, as it's perfect for keeping blood glucose stable.
Thanks every so much, now I feel so egg-inspired!

Just made this and it tastes awesome. However I think my pan is too small so the egg batter from 3 eggs makes a rather thick skin haha

Reply

Thank you Jolene, yes, you will need a medium-large pan for that Smile
