Not sure what to make for breakfast this weekend? TFT HK founder Steph Tan (and one of her favorite lifestyle blogs, Gwyneth Paltrow's "goop") is here to help! See below for a very simple vegetable omelet recipe by Dr. Frank Lipman (eggs are rich in protein, and vitamins A and D; and, whichever veggies you prefer are sure to be good sources of fiber and antioxidants!). See the rest of the "goop" breakfast post for more delicious, healthy starts to your day:
Healthy Breakfast Ideas from Dr. Frank Lipman:
"Omelets are a great platform for so many nutritious additions. Any combination of healthy goodies like chopped spinach, tomatoes, peppers, broccoli, kale, mushrooms, asparagus and onions, will add tons of nutrients, taste and density to your breakfast – so much more than any old bagel ever could. Serve with 1/4 avocado and some greens on the side to slip in a few more healthy fats, magnesium and veggies into your day."
2 - 3 eggs
1/2 cup of chopped vegetables of your choice
1. Crack the eggs into a small bowl, add a pinch of salt and pepper, and beat well with a fork.
2. Put a small frying pan on low heat and warm 1 - 2 teaspoons of olive oil, letting it spread. Add your eggs, making sure to spread them out evenly in the pan. When the omelet begins to firm up, but is still raw on top, sprinkle over the veggies of your choice. Cook on low heat for 1 - 3 more minutes with the veggies incorporated.
3. Using a spatula, gently lift the edges of the omelet until you can ease the spatula underneath and then fold the omelet over in half. When it starts to turn golden brown underneath, remove the pan from the heat and slide the omelet onto a plate.
