super greens omelette
“This is a quick way to sneak loads of goodies into one meal. And, as always,
you can tailor it to suit your tastebuds. The brussels sprouts sound like a weird
addition to this combo, I know, but trust me on this, they taste brilliant and
provide you with tons of vitamin K and other nutrients – including the amino
acid tryptophan, which triggers the formation of serotonin (the happiness
hormone). If you’re not a brussels sprouts fan then kale or even a bit of
cabbage will also work a treat.” p29

Crack the eggs into a bowl, season with salt and pepper and whisk
well, then add the spinach, spring onion, red onion and brussels
sprouts and give them a good old mix.
Melt the butter in a frying pan over a low heat, then pour in half of
the egg mixture and cook for 1–2 minutes, or until the edges start
to fi rm up. Sprinkle half the goat’s cheese over one side of the
omelette and fold the other side over the top. Slide the omelette

extra grind of black pepper.

What a wonderful alternative to meat, Carol. It’s substantial, so you feel you’ve had a meal. But it’s light, non-meat, and quite good for you.
