    Blueberry Kale Omelette | stupideasypaleo.com

    I know what you’re probably thinking: “Really, Steph…blueberries and eggs?! Weird.” Just trust me on this one. The idea of combining fruit with eggs was actually inspired by my longtime pal Allison who has been doing that for quite some time. I finally decided to bite the bullet and make my own variation which was a nice departure from steamed eggs, my usual standby. No kale? Precooked spinach with the moisture drained out of it would make a good substitute. The coconut aminos add a great savory contrast to the sweetness of the berries. The name “omelette” might not be completely accurate here, but I since couldn’t think of what else to call it, that’s what I’m sticking with!

    1. You just amaze me with what you come up with, I usually have eggs and some fruit in the am, now put them together, Du! Thanks so much.

    2. What is coconut Aminos????? Never ever of heard of it but have seen bottles of aminos in the health food store here but not sure if it was coconut???

    3. I love this! Have it for breakfast most mornings after training. Keeps me full until lunch. Thanks for a great recipe Steph!

    4. I keep eggs on hand, and THESE are things we nearly always have in the freezer, kale and blueberries! so one more “backup plan” type recipe. thanks! 🙂

    5. Thanks for the recipe Steph I am going to give this a go for tomorrow’s breakfast. Blueberrys are out of season here in Australia at the moment so I only have frozen ones, I assume these would work ok like fresh. I was thinking of just whacking them in the pan frozen so they keep their shape better as they they thaw and cook. Or is it better to thaw and drain them first before putting them in the pan?

    6. I am doing Whole30 and sick of salty breakfast dishes. This was perfect!!!! Not really sweet but the blueberries give it a lovely flavor that I was completely surprised by. You saved me breakfasts! Thanks 🙂
