Mediterranean Keto Omelette

Eggs are one of the most complete and healthful keto foods available.

After years of being demonized for their cholesterol content, these nutrient dense powerhouses have finally been vindicated.

In fact, the USDA has taken cholesterol off of the the list of “nutrients of concern.”

Eggs are loaded with fat soluble vitamins and minerals as well as bioavailable protein with a desirable ratio of amino acids.

When cooked with fresh organic vegetables and herbs, a pasture-raised egg omelette becomes one of the easiest, most delicious, and most nutrient dense keto meals you could eat!

Allergic to chicken eggs? See if you can find duck eggs at your local farmer’s market or health food store. Duck eggs are even more nutritious than chicken eggs and far less reactive.

Here is a Mediterranean inspired omelette recipe complete with olives and feta cheese for more healthy fats to keep you burning fat in the Keto Zone!
