Blueberry and Cinnamon Omelette : Low Carb




How about this for a nice tasty and healthy breakfast ... it's blueberry and cinnamon omelette ... will you give it try!

What you need:
(for 1 large omelette)
3 free range eggs
1 tsp cinnamon
Handful of blueberries
1tsp coconut oil
Pumpkin seeds (optional)

Directions:
1. Gently beat the 3 eggs together in a bowl
2. Heat a deep-frying pan with one tsp of coconut oil
3. Put half the blueberries in to the frying pan to soften for about 30 seconds
4. Add in the egg mixture.
5. Move the uncooked egg around the pan with a spatula until all the egg starts to set and the whole pan is covered
6. Cover omelette with cinnamon and remaining blueberries and turn to low heat
7. Cook for a further 1-2 minutes until the cinnamon mostly melted in to the omelette
8. Fold the omelette in half and cook for a further 30 seconds
9. Serve immediately with a sprinkling of pumpkin seeds

Please see original idea, and a step by step guide here

Blueberries, not only are they delicious and nutritious but they also have one of the highest antioxidant levels amongst all fruits, vegetables, spices and seasonings.

Blueberries are low in carbs and therefore do not have a significant impact on blood glucose levels, making them a good choice for diabetics.


Blueberries can also be frozen without reducing any of their antioxidant properties or delicate structure. So pick up those on offer in the supermarket and get them in the freezer ... now that's a good idea!

We bring a variety of articles, studies etc. plus recent news/views and recipe ideas to this blog, we hope something for everyone to read and enjoy. Please note, not all may be suitable for you. If you may have any food allergies, or underlying health issues these must always be taken into account. If you are a diabetic and not sure how certain foods may affect your blood sugars, test is best, i.e. use your meter.

All the best Jan

...now that's not a combination that I would think of.

Cheryl said...

Ooooh lovely.
I am going to have that for lunch. Sounds delicious.

Jo said...

I like the sound of the blueberries with the omelette but I'd have to leave out the cinnamon. I'm a big fan of blueberry pancakes for breakfast.

Sounds delicious.

Two (stupid) questions:

Can one use raisins or sultanas instead of blueberries?
Why coconut oil? Would vegetable oil do?

That's three questions. But I was never good at Maths, or History, or Geography or ...

God bless.

Hello Victor and many thanks for your comment and questions.

I/we prefer to eat ours with blueberries, because they are a lower carb fruit. This is important when you do not want to raise blood sugar levels, my husband Eddie is a Type 2 diabetic. If you are not diabetic or not too worried about raising blood sugar levels then I see no reason why for those who prefer raisins or sultanas they wouldn't be fine, I always say try it and see ...

The originator of this article prefers to use Coconut oil because it is high in healthy saturated fats that have different effects than most other fats in your diet, read more about that here https://www.healthline.com/nutrition/top-10-evidence-based-health-benefits-of-coconut-oil#section1

Although of course what we choose to eat is always a personal choice, I would not use vegetable oil, as this article explains https://wellnessmama.com/2193/never-eat-vegetable-oil/

I hope these links help, and I hope you may give this recipe suggestion a try.

All the best Jan

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I admit it looks quite good, and I wonder how the various flavors blend together with the eggs.
