"Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper." -- Adelle Davis (1904-1974)


Knowing and following some proverbs and idioms are good enough, but I have come across few who take them literally! which does not help always. Like the one above. I knew of one person (cant take names of course!)who gorged himself with "Royal" feast in the mornings and when I asked him that wasnt that bad for the health,he gave me this 'Dont u know anything girl? " kinda look and threw this quote to my face!


Oh well, it is of my opinion that the above meant a very "good" breakfast which is "royal" to your body and soul and not JUST for the tongue! Anyways coming back to my kitchen - Eggs form a regular part in my best half's diet.Eggs are powerhouse of Nutrients. But if your diet includes having eggs often enough it is better to reduce the egg yolks. The whites are the best with minimum calories but multifold of health.


For this reason, I make my omelettes with mostly egg whites depending on how many was already consumed during the week. Herbs form the basis of any cuisine around the world. They have their benefits too and are not just added for the color or smell. They have their own medicinal properties.

    Suggestion : As a side one can slice potatoes and shallow fry them , they taste awesome with this omelette. Just thought of sharing since I also sometimes make herb omelletes at home. Thanks.

    This looks really nice... but if you want a completely vegetarian version of this, use Gram flour and add some asafoetida. :)

    Looks almost like a pizza. Adding a tbsp of milk to eggs makes fluffy omelettes. Thank DK, for the 'royal' breakfast ;)
