This omelette has been designed to provide a substantial amount of nutrients while keeping your blood sugars stable. The extra fat from the cheese gives a decadent taste.
Eggs provide plenty of bioavailable protein and nutrients while the spinach fills in some harder to find vitamins and minerals such as potassium and magnesium.
Nutritional yeast adds extra B vitamins and a cheesy flavour.
Sugar-free sweet chilli sauce and some of your favourite salt (e.g. sea salt or Lite Salt) will boost the taste.
