Eggs can become a staple in your diet. When you are not sure what to eat, a good option is to make yourself an omelet.  You can control the amount of fat and calories by removing the yolk and using cooking oil spray. Let’s cook now!

Step One:  Crack four eggs into a bowl and beat until smooth and well mixed. The colour of the mixture should be more yellow than white.

Step Two: Dice the tomatoes and turkey and slice the onions up very small.

Step Three: Add a tablespoon of butter (or use cooking spray) to a medium-heat pan and when hot dump in the tomatoes and turkey and fry for two minutes.

Step four:  Pour in the egg mixture and spread it evenly throughout the pan and allow to set.

Step five: When the omelette takes on a ‘harder’ form flip it over. The underside should be cooked slightly but not so much that it’s impossible to fold.

Step seven: Add the sliced onions to the top of the omelette, flip over and do likewise on the other side. These give it a delicious flavour. Season the omelette with salt and pepper.
