The 5-2 Challenge. Fast Day Quick Meal. Tomato and Chilli Omelette With Avocado and Fresh Herbs.

Tomato and Chilli Omelette With Avocado and Soft Herbs

The easiest fast days are the busiest. Sometimes there is not a lot of time to spend in the kitchen calorie counting to whip up a suitable meal. Here is my idea of a simple, nutritious fast day quick meal. An omelette jam packed with all my favourite flavours. Chilli, garlic, lemon, tomato, avocado and fresh herbs. There was even room for a little sesame oil to add just a little more depth of flavour to this simple dish. All in all a very easy but satisfying fast day as I raced about to prepare for a long weekend away.
