This is our entry for the world’s healthiest omelette, whether you eat ketogenically or not, and we would welcome links to alternatives in the comments below. As with all approaches to meal preparation, ours comes with a set of ideas about both optimal taste and nutritional qualities. In the latter case, our omelette is made the HumanaNatura way and following HumanaNatura’s OurPlate healthy eating guidelines.

Our world’s healthiest omelette has just five main ingredients: 1) four organic eggs from pasture-raised hens, 2) one hundred grams (3.5 ounces) of cooked and coarsely chopped wild-caught fish, 3) sixty grams (2 ounces) of organic shredded cabbage (shredded baby organic spinach or kale, or chopped organic cilantro are alternatives), 4) fifteen grams (0.5 ounces) of thinly sliced onion or shallot (crushed and chopped garlic is an alternative), and 5) a tablespoon of organic grass-fed butter. As you can discover for yourself, these simple ingredients combine to create an omelette that is mouth-wateringly good, while being high in quality proteins, healthy omega-3 fats, essential vitamins and minerals, and plant fiber. And when combined with the raw vegetable salad as shown and described here, our omelette makes for a perhaps nutritionally perfect meal.
To make our world’s healthiest omelette, start by sauteing the onion in the butter for about two minutes on medium-high heat in a medium-sized saute pan, and then wilt the cabbage on top (to increase flavor and break down the cabbage’s indigestible sugar, raffinose, which can cause bloating). As the vegetables cook, whisk the eggs in a bowl and fold in the fish, along with your favorite seasonings – we have used a bit of ground black pepper, red pepper, and turmeric. Pour the egg and chopped fish mixture over the cooked veggies and cook until done, turning or flipping the omelette when cooked nearly through. Quarter or divide the cooked omelette and plate as shown, garnish with black pepper and parsley flakes, and serve promptly!
This recipe or formula for the world’s healthiest omelette of course can be varied – for example, by making the omelette and accompanying salad larger or smaller, omitting or substituting the fish, adding other vegetables or a bit of pasture-raised cheese, or including carbohydrate-rich fruit or starch in the salad. As shown, our omelette and salad meal – along with a side of cheese, nuts, and celery – has about 2000 calories and is very low in carbs, making the overall meal ideal for people eating both ketogenically and one-meal-a-day (OMAD). The specific ingredients and macronutrient breakdown of the combined meal, taken from an earlier HumanaNatura post, are listed below (click to enlarge):

how many fruits can you eat safely in a day?
Hi Lucy, Good question. The quick answer is that it depends, based on your diet and goals, and taking your question to mean the optimal amount of fruit. On a high carb natural diet, one can have generous fruit, but on a low or very carb one, there is little or no room for fruit. We discuss four model diets in the Natural Eating section of our Personal Health Program, each with different carb levels, and encourage you to have a look!
