Omelets often feature savory ingredients, but tart apples also make an amazing addition to this popular breakfast dish.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 teaspoon of coconut oil
  • 1 cup of egg whites
  • 1 small cooked chicken breast, shredded
  • 1 apple, cored, peeled and diced
  • 3 large collard leaves, stems removed, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup of hazelnuts, lightly toasted and crushed
  • Salt and pepper

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Add coconut oil to a small pan and heat over medium heat. You can also use olive oil, but it doesn’t tolerate heat as well as coconut oil.
  2. Add shredded chicken and sprinkle it with salt and pepper. Heat until fully cooked.
  3. Add apples and cook until soft, then transfer to a small plate.
  4. Add collards and cook until wilted, then add chicken and apples back to the skillet.
  5. Pour in the egg whites, and sprinkle hazelnuts on top of them.
  6. Reduce heat, cover loosely, and cook for about 5 minutes.
