When it comes to having a healthy breakfast that’s sure to keep you satisfied all morning, you’d be hardpressed to find a better option than a veggie-packed omelette. A favourite amongst nuritionists including Liv Kaplan, omelettes are high in protein and a great way to sneak in as many nutrients as you can at the start of the day. The below recipe contains greens including kale and zucchini, chilli to kickstart your metabolism and lime for added zest. The addition of hemp seed oil also provides the added benefits of healthy fats.
“I love packing all my meals with the most flavour possible, and that’s why you’ll see loads of herbs and spices and different kinds of veggies in this recipe, not to mention the more variety of these kinds of plant foods means loads of polyphenols and prebiotic fibres to really enhance the health of our guts.” — Liv Kaplan.
