I bought a book this week called I Quit Sugar For Life by Sarah Wilson. She talks a lot of sense but is not particularly low carbing so I will be adapting the recipes where necessary.
This was her recipe for an alternative breakfast.Berry Omelette
1-2 tbs rice malt syrup (I used Da Vinci strawberry flavoured sugar free syrup)
1 tbs butter (I used unsalted)
1 cup (150g) mixed berries (I used strawberries & blueberries)
mascarpone or full fat plain yoghurt to serve (I used extra thick double cream)
Separate the eggs & whisk the syrup & yolks with a stick blender. In a separate bowl, beat the egg whites until thick and fluffy, then fold into the yolk & syrup mixture.
Melt the butter in a 22cm omelette pan over a low heat. Pour in the eggs & sprinkle the berries over the top. Cook over a low heat until the base is golden. Transfer the pan to your oven grill & brown very slightly. The omelette should be firm but a little creamy.
Serve with the mascarpone or yoghurt.
I made a 2 egg version for my breakfast & forgot to separate the eggs but it worked just fine. Tasted very nice but I'm not sure it will keep me feeling full for as long as a cheese one would
I think it would also be nice as a dessert anytime.
I did take a photo of the piccy in the book as it looked so lovely but am having trouble getting Windows 8 to recognise my camera. Will post it later if I can
I tried taking the photo with my phone instead & downloaded it to the pc but don't know how to resize it to make it small enough to post without Outlook Express. Grrr I hate Windows
