Kale and Onion Omelette

IMG_8526

This is one of my favourite breakfast foods and definitely makes it easy to stay on track.
For variation, I add additional veggies like peppers and mushrooms, but the flavour of this great omelette comes from the sauteed kale (in my opinion). I also like to add low-fat cheese.

The four basic ingredients: coconut oil, kale, eggs, onion

Start with warming a tsp of coconut oil in a pan.

Add a handfull of kale.

Once the kale softens spread the kale and onion mix in the pan.

Lightly beat 2-3 eggs in a dish, and pour the eggs over the onion and kale.

Allow egg to cook slightly. Add low-fat cheese (optional).
