This is MY favorite breakfast! During the winter I have this 5 out of 7 days a week! SO healthy and delicious! YUMMMMM! The egg omelet is HG Strict or lib, check TIPS below for variations 🙂
Prep Time: 1 minute
Cook Time: 3 minutes
1 fresh farm egg from my sister in law =)
1/4 cup frozen or fresh berries, or favorite fruit (use strawberries for Hypoglycemia Diet/Carb Intolerance Strict)
Xylitol or sweetener of choice (optional)
Directions: I always use frozen berries that I picked the summer before, frozen berries release more juices than fresh ones. And I use my smallest frying pan with a lid.
Whisk eggs till there is a little froth on top (about 1 minute) and put them in the little pan with a little butter, on medium. Put the lid on with a couple drops water.
Once your egg puffs up a bit, fold, slide out onto plate.(takes about 1-2 minutes- just about all the time I need to get my berries and plate and spoon out 🙂 )
Turn pan to high and add 1 tsp butter with 1 tsp vanilla, 1 tsp of Xylitol and 1/4 cup berries, swirl for about 1 minute till all is hot and scrape with spatula all your yummies over your egg.
Done! I find this way keeps the berries a little more fresh and yummy- it almost give them a flambeed taste (which can happen if you have a gas stove like mine and have some alcohol in the ingredients of your vanilla)
Breakfast is served! 🙂 YUMMMM… going to make one now….
Tip: make this Hypoglycemia/Carb Intolerance Diet Strict by using Strawberries! I have been using 4 strawberries and one or 2 raspberries, just to tart it up a bit 🙂
Tip: if you are using a mild fruit like mangoes, peaches or pears, skip the sweetener and put a couple drops of lemon with the fruit, tastes great like that!
Tip: you can go without the sweetener, but add another 1/4 cup berries (not for HG diet). Berries are pretty pricey in my neck of the woods, so I try to go as cheap as possible 🙂
Tip: you can make this a desert too, just scoop some homemade whipping cream on top! or I have it for a healthy snack: protein and fruit is a filling and healthy alternative to chips and chocolate!
