Another Easy & Healthy Recipe


I couldn't decide if I wanted an omelet or a salad for supper so I ended up combining the two and really liked the results. This was quick and easy to make and best of all it was really healthy. Here's how I made it... if you are wondering. :)
Chopped up onion and mushrooms and put them over low/medium heat with some coconut oil to lightly caramelize the onions. Then I whisked up 3 eggs with a dash of milk, oregano, basil and pepper... cooked it like an omelet. When it was done cooking I added just a little cheese and put the onions and mushrooms on, then scooped it onto a bed of lettuce and spinach. I added some flax seed and topped it off with a few dried cranberries to add a little extra color and sweet taste. I will definitely be making it again.
Too bad my daughter can't stand eggs (she was allergic to them since birth) and she hates the texture of lettuce. Boo! I'm thankful she loves steamed broccoli. She had a plate full of steamed broccoli and carrots with a touch of flax seed and an almond butter + strawberry jelly sandwich followed by dried cranberries and an orange for dessert.
What are your favorite healthy/easy meals to make? I would love some good ideas!

So creative! This looks delicious and so pretty! :) I have not cooked with coconut oil before. Is there a reason you use it rather than olive oil? What a bummer to be allergic to eggs!

Come over anytime Martine and I'll make it for you! :)
Jen~ I use coconut oil because it's supposed to be healthier. It can also be used for so many other things. Here's a good link for the uses and benefits: http://www.organicfacts.net/organic-oils/organic-coconut-oil/health-benefits-of-coconut-oil.html
