After a healthy breakfast recipe that’s good for building muscle? This omelette is designed to be a well-balanced and tasty alternative to breakfast cereals or just plain old eggs.
Eggs are packed with protein, good fats, vitamins and iron. Only a small amount of butter is used and almost all the fats are healthy fats from the egg yolks (use whites only if this does not fit in with your goals). Potato provides, clean, low GI carbs. Lime stimulates your metabolism, is a natural fat burner and is a great source of vitamin C. Tomatoes are packed with antioxidants and have cancer busting properties. Mixed herbs and pepper add guilt-free flavouring.
