Hopefully the recent Breakfast Week should have instilled good breakfast habits. If, you require further encouragement then try making this simple Omelette devised by DW Fitness’ Health & Fitness Expert Carly Tierney.

Egg yolks are full of iron and vitamins, but they are also high in cholesterol, which is why two full eggs and three egg whites are used in this recipe. Asparagus, meanwhile, contains Vitamins A, C, E and K, and is also good for iron. The red pepper, is a great source of Vitamin C,  as well as adding some crunch to the dish.

Finally, the salmon is another source of good fats and is also full of protein, making this a perfect meal for building muscle.

Ingredients:

Two full eggs

Three egg whites

One or two asparagus

One pepper

50g of smoked salmon

Method:

Boil your asparagus in water for around five minutes.

While you’re doing so, mix your eggs and egg whites in a jug, and add a splash of skimmed milk. Chop the pepper up and throw in too.

Once your asparagus is cooked, drain it and chop into smaller chunks – add these to your egg mixture.

Whisk your mixture and season with salt and pepper.

Pour the mix into a hot pan – if you want to be a little risqué, use a small knob of butter or a teaspoon of quality olive oil.

Cook the omelette for around 90 seconds to two minutes.

Once you’re happy that the bottom is cooked, take the pan off the hob and place under the grill for another 30 seconds to a minute in order to cook the top.

Serve with your smoked salmon.

Enjoy!
