Sweet Breakfast Omelette

I felt like a change from the usual oats or some rendition of eggs on toast this morning so I thought I’d try a sweet omelette. Rather than wanting to unnecessarily up my sugar for the morning I sweetened this with some of the banana that I used on top.

 

Recipe

1 medium sized, ripe banana

2 large eggs

1/2 tsp Cinnamon

3 tbsp Yoghurt (I used a soya yoghurt but any is fine)

Method

Cut about a third off the end of the banana and mash it up with a fork in a bowl

Add the eggs and cinnamon to the bowl with the banana and whisk until well blended

Add enough oil to a hot frying pan to stop the omelette from sticking

Once the oil is heated, add the egg, tip the pan if needed so the egg spreads evenly over the pan

When the centre is almost fully cooked, slide a fish slice or spatula around the outside to loosen the edges. Here, I find it easiest to fold the right third into the middle and then the left, this stops it from ripping when you take it out of the pan.

Once the omelette is cooked through, transfer to a plate and garnish with the yoghurt, banana and a sprinkling of cinnamon.

 

And that’s it! A super quick and easy breakfast that makes a change from the usual and is even easier than making pancakes! The toppings, spices and sweeteners could be changed up for a ton of variations on this so expect to see some more in the future.

 

A Welome Break

Oooof, what a week, a beautiful, perfect, wonderful week! Well five days actually, but it was still lovely. It was Jamie’s (my partner) birthday on Tuesday so we took some time off together. We weren’t planning on going away anywhere far away so I knew that I’d have 5 solid days at home; apart from the odd trip and things planned for Jamie’s actual birthday I had planned to use these 5 days to get stuff done. I had planned to dedicate myself to job applications, course work and blog posts. I was going to be super productive, utilising every second of my time to its utmost worth!

…instead I actually ended up doing very little work wise, I still got up early (I’m an early riser naturally…) but rather than forcing myself to work on tasks that I wasn’t feeling, I didn’t. I just didn’t. Instead I read, binged watched Netflix, ate a bit too much, probably had a little too much beer (what? I was celebrating?! ), went for riverside walks and spent time with my family, I had a soothing bath and did some yoga. Rather than needing to be busy,

I just stopped.

and relaxed and breathed for a while and do you know what? I feel fucking great! Rather than feeling bad for working out less and eating more I have realised that on occasions, that’s okay. Sometimes we need a rest, to not put pressure on ourselves to be perfect all of the time. We need to just be.

Before I took a  break I felt so drained, I constantly felt overwhelmed and always felt like I needed time on my own. That’s not me, I’m quite the opposite actually, usually accused of being too positive if anything. I am now well rested and happy, I am filled with so much love for my family and friends and have the energy to do the things that I had planned to do with more fervour than before.

So, I haven’t wasted time, I haven’t missed out on things I needed to do, they’ll still get done but I have made myself more available and more able to do them well and with a big old smile on my face.

I guess what I’m trying to say is, rest when you need to, give yourself that time, you deserve it, the jobs will still be there when you are done but you’ll be better equipped to complete them.

Enjoy your weekend!
