Looking for carb-clever breakfast ideas?

We’ve got four of them, just for you.


Basic omelette


Nothing basic about the taste, though. (Plus, it’s a perfectly good lunch and dinner option.)
1. Whisk 4–6 free-range eggs with a pinch of sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Heat 2 T olive oil in a nonstick pan over a medium heat.
2. Pour in the beaten eggs, then swirl around the pan a few times.
3. Once the omelette has almost set in the middle and the edges are cooked, spoon over a dollop of crème fraîche, 1 T snipped chives and 100 g blanched asparagus onto one half of the omelette. Loosen the edges of the uncovered half from the sides of the pan using a spatula, then flip onto the side covered by the toppings. Cook for a further 20 seconds, then slide out of the pan onto a plate. Serve immediately.

Spicy chorizo stir-fry


Top this with a runny fried egg and it’s pretty much breakfast perfection.
1. Heat 1 T olive oil and 1 T butter in a pan over medium heat. Tear or cut 225 g chorizo sausage into chunks, add to the pan and cook for 1 minute.
2. Add 1 red onion, sliced into wedges, 2 halved tomatoes and 1 red chilli, halved lengthways. Brown until slightly charred.
3. Serve immediately with the oil from the pan.

Garlicky mushrooms with spinach and cream


This also makes the ideal side to a juicy piece of steak, if you want to bulk things up a bit.
1. Heat 1 T olive oil and 1 T butter in a pan over medium heat. Add 4 torn brown mushroom steaks and brown evenly. Add 4 cloves finely chopped garlic and stir-fry for 30 seconds, then add 200 g baby spinach and cook until wilted in the pan, about 1 minute.
2. Add 1 cup of cream and reduce for 2 minutes over high heat. Season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Carb Clever cereal


Prefer a bowl of milky cereal over a fry-up in the morning? We hear you. So does Woolies. And their Carb Clever granola range is a total game changer. These cereals are made using nuts and seeds, with added coconut or almond flour, and contain no grains. Each serving contains less than half a teaspoon of badger-friendly honey (added for colour and crunch) and the almond and cocoa nib variant – our favourite, BTW – is made using UTZ Certified cocoa, which means the cocoa has been sustainably sourced and farmed. Stock up now and say goodbye to boring breakfast!
