One of my favorite breakfast combos. I used to throw the sweet potatoes in the omelette, but for the past year or so I try to eat my carbs after cooking then cooling them, which has several benefits (comment for details).
Since no omelette is complete without cheese, I wanted to share notes. Some people are reluctant to add cheese to their diet because lactose intolerance, it makes them feel bloated, makes them break out, etc., but not all cheeses are created equal. I try to incorporate fermented cheeses into my diet frequently.
Fermentation of dairy has many benefits:
*Increase in vitamins B & C.
*Helps to break down casein, a milk protein many people can’t digest.
*Restores many of the enzymes destroyed during pasteurization including lactase, which helps digest lactose (milk sugar), & numerous enzymes that help the body absorb calcium & other minerals.
*Lactase produced during culturing process allows many people who are sensitive to fresh milk to tolerate fermented products, such as cream cheese, yogurt, kefir, whey, & cultured milk, cream, & cheese.
Full fat or fat-free? - I always go full fat
*Low fat options usually sub in artificial ingredients & sweeteners to maintain texture of real cheese
*Full fat cheeses contain fatty acid CLA (benefits = anti-cancer, fat loss, anti-diabetic, & anti-hypertensive).
Try to go organic
*Toxins store in animal fat
*Organic dairy has up to 62% more omega-3 fatty acids.
I choose fermented Mozzarella cheese because:
*Provides probiotics & the benefits mentioned above.
*1 oz = ~80 kcal, 6g Protein, 6g fat, Vitamin B12 & A, Calcium, Phosphorus, Zinc, Selenium, & Iron.
So if you’ve been avoiding cheeses for any reasons above, try the whole fat, fermented, organic types & see if you feel a difference.
