So I have been trying to eat more healthy with less calories lately and this has led me to the Tony Ferguson weight loss program. I bought premade meal replacement shakes, soup and smoothie bowls to replace the crap I usually eat. But while surfing around on their website I found a heap of recipes I thought I would try, they look really delicious and not too hard to make. This mushroom omelet looked really good, the recipe sounded great so I made it and I actually really liked it. My hubby wasn’t a fan, there is no meat in it hahahaha but he ate it and was satisfied with just one! The thing with this food is that it is surprisingly filling even though you eat way less. You have to use asian mushrooms, whatever ones you can get and I found them a bit challeging at first, they are chewy, pretty bland and some of them are a bit slimy when cooked but overall they weren’t too bad. I guess you use these types of mushrooms because you have to chew them like you would normally chew meat? Try it and see what you think…
