A delicious and nutritious omelet recipe, that isn't only just for breakfast but can be enjoyed at any time of the day.
Ingredients
  • 4 Bacon slices
  • 1 Avocado
  • 2 Tablespoons (30 ml) diced Onion
  • 1 Tablespoon (15 ml) chopped Cilantro
  • 1 Dash Hot Sauce
  • 4 Eggs
Instructions
  1. Nobody wants soggy bacon, so cook your bacon until it is crisp.
  2. Set aside and remember to drain any excess oil and work with your avocado.
  3. When choosing your avocado, always test the firmness. It should not be too hard or too soft. Cut your avocado in half and remove the stone or seed. Remove the flesh, place in a bowl and mash it up!
  4. You can mash the Avovado according to how you prefer it. I like mine with a bit of substance and not as fine as puree
  5. Add the diced onion and cilantro in the mashed avocado. Crumble or snip you drained bacon in the avocado mash. Stir everything well.
  6. Beat your eggs and cook your omelet just the way you always do. Some prefer adding the egg with the avocado mixture and cook it as usual. Some add flare to the omelet by cooking the egg first and adding the avocado mixture on top when one side is cooked and flip the egg over the mixture. It really depends on you!
  7. Serve hot and enjoy!
The egg and bacon are good enough, but the avocado will add texture and flavor to your omelet. Avocados are so nutritious and very Paleo friendly that Paleoistas should definitely use it more. If the taste is not enough to get you addicted, the health benefits of avocado will surely be a way to have its special place in your Paleo food list. Here are some reasons why you need avocado in your life:

Contains Healthy Fats

Avocado contains healthy fats which help absorb nutrient and vitamins from other food. These healthy fats also help burn the unwanted fat deposits in your body, which in turn can lead to weight loss and you having a healthier heart.

Has Important Vitamins and Nutrients

Avocados are a mine for vitamins and other nutrients that can help keep the body healthy. Avocado contain Vitamins K, C, B1-3 and B5-6 and K, all contributing to better health. An avocado also contains more potassium than a banana, protein, magnesium, manganese, copper, iron, zinc and phosphorous.

Paleo Food - Avocado

High Fiber Content

Fiber also helps get rid of unwanted fats and some toxins from the body. Avocado is full of these helpful fibers that help promote regular bowel movements.

Promotes Eye Health

The fatty acids from avocado are the reason why it’s healthy for the eyes. The fatty acids help the absorption of beta-carotene. This in return provides an antioxidant that protects the tissues in the eyes.

Reduce Risks Arthritis and Cancer

The anti-inflammatory contents of avocado together with its high Vitamin K content promotes better bone health, reducing risks of acquiring arthritis and osteoarthritis pain. The mix of anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory contents is also a great help in reducing the risks of cancer.

Avocado is definitely a food fit for your Paleo diet list. Whether you eat it raw or added it into your favorite meal or smoothie. Avocado will definitely suit your taste and keep you healthy!
