If you’re looking for a light, healthy meal then why not try an egg-based favourite; a smoked salmon and asparagus omelette that’s nutritious and indulgent.

Ingredients

  • 100g bundle of fresh asparagus, trimmed
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 3 large British Lion eggs
  • 15g butter
  • 50g smoked salmon

Method

  1. Preheat a griddle pan. Cut the asparagus in half lengthways, toss in the olive oil and seasoning to taste. Lay the asparagus on the hot griddle pan and cook for 4-5 minutes, turning once until the asparagus is charred and tender. Beat the eggs with seasoning.
  2. Melt a quarter of the butter in an medium frying pan, when sizzling pour in a quarter of the egg mixture and cook for 3-4 minutes, pushing the cooked egg into the centre of the pan with a spatula until no runny egg remains. Cook for 1 minute until base is golden.
  3. Scatter a quarter of the asparagus and salmon over the omelette and fold onto a plate. Repeat to make a further three omelettes in the same way.

Cook’s tip
If you don’t have a griddle pan, you could oven-roast the asparagus at 200C/Fan/180C/400F/Gas Mark 6 for 10-15 minutes.

For more tips from a nutritionist and hunger-busting recipes click the link in our bio. 
1.	Hangry management is better than a hangry cure - stave off any danger of a hangry episode by choosing protein-based foods over carb or fat-based options; research shows that when eating meals of equal calories, those with a higher protein content help to keep you fuller for longer
2.	Stay fully hydrated - dehydration can be deceptive, making you think you’re hungry when actually you’re just thirsty - remember to drink plenty, especially in fluctuating temperatures
3.	DO NOT miss breakfast - the age-old mantra of ‘breakfasting like a king’ is one that still rings true; you should always eat a substantial breakfast, choose something speedy to make like our Avocado and Prosciutto Crunch Omelette… no excuses!
4.	Not any old breakfast - it’s vital that you don’t load up on sugary carbs at breakfast time. Help to avoid hangry related rage on the road, or tantrums on the train, by opting for high protein brekkie options like Fast Florentine eggs; the high protein content will keep hanger at bay until lunchtime
5.	Stay satiated – choose foods with low energy but high nutrient density and eat them frequently.  If you don’t like big meals, or your lifestyle isn’t conducive to the traditional ‘three square meals’, make sure you graze on the right foods.  Hangry feelings can make you reach for a quick fix sugary snack but picking a protein-based power snack instead – like Spicy Potato Scotch eggs – will deliver just enough carbs to stem the hanger while the eggy protein will give you protection against future hangry outbursts
