Eating clean really doesn’t have to be a complicated thing. The whole philosophy around eating clean is to eat whole, natural, simple ingredients. There are some recipes that require a bit more thought and effort but generally I like to make my meals as easy and simple as possible. They taste better that way.
Over the next few weeks I shall be posting the everyday food that I eat. I have often overlooked these meals as just standard clean eating ideas but some of them may be new to you and so I thought that if I am going to eat it, it is worth sharing on the blog too.
This omelette is delicious, there is no doubt about it. It is simple to make and requires only a little time and patience to cook it to perfection. The key to a perfect omelette is to cook it slowly, otherwise you end up with a burnt bottom and a soggy middle. No one likes that.
I made this omelette for lunch today and whilst I was snapping the pictures for the blog my little man kept me company, eating his lunch (clean eating pitta pizza) on the windowsill. Such a happy moment, I had to capture it! He makes me so happy. <3
Clean Eating Goats Cheese Basil Omelette
- Yield: 1 Servings
This omelette is delicious, there is no doubt about it. It is simple to make and requires only a little time and patience to cook it to perfection.
- 1/2 teaspoon Oil of choice I used coconut oil
- 1 Whole Egg
- 2 Egg Whites (or any combination of eggs you like)
- 1 Tablespoon Soft Goats Cheese
- 10 Fresh Basil Leaves
- Place the oil into a small non stick frying pan and heat over a medium heat.
- Whisk together the eggs in a bowl and crumble in the goats cheese.
- Whisk together and add the basil leaves whole.
- Pour the mixture into the frying pan, evenly spacing out the basil and allow to cook slowly for a few minutes until the bottom is lightly golden brown and the top is mostly set.
- Carefully slide the omelette onto a small plate and then place the frying pan over the plate and gently flip the omelette back over into the frying pan so that the top of the omelette is now facing the bottom of the pan.
- Cook for a further minute until the egg is cooked through and serve.
- You can enjoy this as a snack, or as a breakfast along with a smoothie, or as a lunch with a salad and some toasted rye bread.
