Free Healthy Recipe - Sage and Spinach Omelette

Gluten free, Low carbohydrate, Low GI, Wheat Free

I love omelettes - when you open the fridge and there's very little in it bar some eggs, a few other scraps and the obligatory greens in the crisper, a delicious healthy meal is still within your grasp in the form of an omelette. And it always seems to surpass your expectations.
Eggs are so nutritionally valuable yet rarely rated against other protein foods, but once you add the goat's cheese and skimmed milk it provides almost as much protein as 100g lean minced beef and a whole lot of other nutrients.

1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp sage, chopped
½ bunch English spinach
2 free range eggs beaten
¼ cup skim milk
30 grams hard goat's cheese, grated

Heat the oil and add the sage to fry until it's crispy. Drain on absorbent paper and set aside. Steam the spinach for 2 minutes. Drain and squeeze out any excess moisture.

Beat the eggs together with the low fat milk and pour the mixture info a non-stick omelette pan. Cook for 4 - 5 minutes. Once the omelette is close to cooked, sprinkle the goat's cheese and sage leaves over the top and cook for another couple of minutes. Spread the spinach over the top once the cheese has melted and fold the omelette in half.

Serve with a green salad.

Note: A 5 gram serve of sage contains three times more antioxidants than a tomato. It grows easily in a pot and is one of the most tasty and versatile herbs to use in everyday cooking.
