Spinach omelette (full fat)

This omelette recipe has been designed to provide a solid amount of nutrients while keeping your blood sugars stable with some extra fat from the cheese to provider a yummy and decadent taste.   

Eggs provide plenty of bioavailable protein and nutrients.   Spinach provides harder to find vitamins and minerals such as potassium and magnesium.  The nutritional yeast adds some extra flavour and B vitamins and some extra cheesy flavour.   Adding some mushrooms (not shown in the recipe below) would improve the nutrient density and satiety even more.  

Sugar-free sweet chilli sauce and some of your favourite salt (e.g. sea salt or Lite Salt) will help to boost the taste.  

There are three versions of the recipe shown below if the larger ones are too much to get through (a good problem to have, really).
