Rainbow Omelette with Sweet Potato & Avocado

This rainbow omelette is a protein-packed low carb lunch which won’t send your blood sugar skyrocketing due to the combination of protein, fat and complex carbs.  By slowing down the digestive process, this ensures that the beta cells release insulin from the pancreas at a steady rate – rather than flooding the system.  When the body constantly produces too much insulin from consuming a bad diet of lots of simple carbohydrates it becomes resistant to it, which can cause weight gain and leading to Type 2 Diabetes.

Method

  • In a frying pan heat a little olive oil and add the sweet potato, stir until it softens, then add the tomatoes and salt and pepper, stirring so it doesn’t stick
  • Add the spinach and stir, it wilts quickly, then add the whisked eggs by pouring over the softened ingredients
  • Use a spatula if needed to move the food around the pan
  • Heat gently for around 3 to 4 minutes, you can see when the egg is getting cooked.  Fold  the omelette over in the pan and transfer to a plate
