Pregnancy Friendly // Omelet Recipe

Written with love, by Sarah-Elizabeth Stone

There are those mornings where the weekend can’t come faster. You lay in bed talking yourself into getting up, exhaustion weighing on your shoulders. Days become a little longer, and while this is an amazingly exciting time for everyone, you especially, sometimes a girl could use an extra half hour in bed!

The first couple of months will find you particularly fatigued as you adjust. It becomes really important in this time period to eat full, balanced meals to keep your energy up and get you through the day. One of my favourite ways to start the day is my husband’s amazing omelet recipe. Its packed full of healthy, fresh ingredients and lots of protein!
