Fast food: The omelette


While popular in restaurants I think the omelette is an overlooked dish when people cook at home. While scrambled eggs is arguably the most foolproof egg dish I'd place the omelette as a close second. You can make an epic omelette like the one above in about 10 minutes.
  I like to use 3 eggs when I make an omelette because that number just coats my entire cast iron pan. Get your pan extremely hot. I like to use cast iron because it distributes the heat evenly across the whole pan and is perfectly flat. Add 1 or 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil. While the oil heats add your 3 eggs and a bit of salt to a mixing bowl and beat. Chop up whatever vegetables or meat you'd like to add to the omelette. If you're adding meat make sure its already cooked as your omelette isn't going to sit on the burner long enough to cook meat. When the oil is nice and hot, and just before it starts to smoke, dump your eggs into the pan. They should immediately begin to cook. Tilt and rotate the pan to make sure the eggs are spread evenly. The eggs should cook through in about a minute. Add the omelette contents to the pan by putting them on one half of the eggs. Turn off the burner and using a metal or wooden spatula fold the omelette in half, covering its contents.
  You'll have just made yourself a nutritious meal in about 10 minutes without any of the junk you'd find in fast food. Now you're learning to eat.

Fatlicious Chocolates

Make these chocolates to have on hand when you need an afternoon snack or an after dinner treat. The healthy fats will satisfy your hunger as the chocolate satisfies your sweet tooth.

Ingredients (makes 12 one inch thick chocolates)

1/4 cup Xylitol
9.7oz Scharffen Berger baking chocolate bar (99% cacao)
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup almond butter
1tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup butter from grass fed cows (I like Kerrygold)
1/8 cup dutched chocolate
sea salt

What you'll need

Double boiler
Paper baking cups
Muffin pan

1) Mix together all of the ingredients except the sea salt in a double boiler.

2) Once melted use a ladle to fill paper cups in a muffin pan.

3) Add a dash of sea salt to each chocolate.

4) Refridgerate chocolates until hardened. They will become very soft at room temperature so keep them refrigerated.

If you want to make them sugar free replace the honey with another 1/4 cup of Xylitol.
