Apples probably aren’t the first ingredient that comes to mind when you think of super powering your omelet. However, an apple a day with your eggs is worth a try due to the nutritional benefits. Relatively cheap, apples are packed full of vitamins and antioxidants, and studies have linked them to the preventing of many serious diseases (i.e., heart disease). Luckily, with a wide variety of apples differing in taste, choosing your favorite fruit to add to (or with) your eggs can produce a surprisingly delicious combination.
Leaving the peel on, chop up an apple and add it to your bowl of whipped eggs. You can include other ingredients (i.e., low fat cheese) but apples taste just dandy as the sole ingredient. Once you pour the mixture into your frying pan, add some cinnamon for a naturally sweet flavor with no extra calories. Cinnamon is a super-charged spice that helps lower blood sugar (with beneficial effects on glycemic control) and even bad cholesterol, according to the Mayo Clinic. You don’t need to add a lot of cinnamon on to reap the benefits of this spice, just a pinch of the powerful flavor will complement the apples.
