As someone who was born in Brazil I am highly accustomed to accompanying my breakfast meals with bread; french bread to be more precise but I love bread so any kind would do.
However, as I get older I have realized more and more that when I eat carbs as my first meal I usually feel sluggish, heavy and bloated and while I may never give up carbs I have made a commitment to at least reducing the amount of bread I add to my diet.
I started thinking of ways that I could replace bread in my morning meals and came across a recipe that my friend's mother made and I absolutely fell in love with it. This omelet stuffed tomatoes was a perfect way for me to break the fast without bread and yet it tasted delicious!
So, if you are also embarking on the journey of removing or reducing carbs from your diet, you will absolutely love this turkey and cheese omelette stuffed tomatoes. The reason why I added turkey to the mix is because I love to eat a high protein meal in the morning, it gives me the energy I need to take on the day without feeling tired and snoozy.
Sometimes I also add leafy greens and herbs such as okinawa spinach, rosemary, basil, moringa, and whatever else I have in my garden that is ready to be harvested. You can take a tour of my garden in this video.
Without further ado, here is the recipe for this tantalizing low carb breakfast recipe.
