Whilst on holiday in Turkey, menemen omelette was one of my favourite meals to have at lunch. I’ve recreated a healthy alternative with only 200 calories per serving and Evelyn loves it too! It’s a perfect lunch that you can make the night before and warm at work- or a quick, easy and delicious tea!
- 2x white onions
- 3x peppers
- 4x large tomatoes
- 4x medium eggs
- 2tsp smoked paprika
- 2tsp lazy garlic
- 1tsp thyme
- 1tsp basil (or any herbs you fancy)
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Pre-heat grill to 200.
- Chop up all ingredient and fry off the onion.
- Add the peppers and tomato and fry until the juices have reduced.
- Add seasoning and mix well.
- Crack the eggs on top of the veg and reduce the heat until the egg whites start to cook.
- Take the pan off the heat and place under the grill for 3-5 minutes to finish cooking the egg.
- Once cooked, stir eggs through to create a ‘scrambled egg’ type dish.
This has to be one of the quickest but tastiest dishes I’ve made. And because it’s so low in calories- you can have the whole pan if you fancy!
Let me know if you try this!

I’m a primary school teacher and I’m a mum to a beautiful, bright and bubbly six-year-old. I witness the ups and downs of wellbeing in children every day. Every parent faces the same dilemma – how to ensure the wellbeing of our children – particularly from a mental health perspective in a world that is more pressured than ever in more ways than one.
I am a pub girl through and through and a glutton for a good, hearty menu. Forever hunting out new locations to catch up with my friends or to go for lunch with the family, so was super excited to discover this little gem situated in the beautiful Sutton.
I had already heard good things about Elements. Despite only just celebrating their first birthday, they’ve been nominated for two awards in Marketing Derby’s food and drink awards (Best Newcomer and Best Customer Service). Thanks to their beautifully curated Instagram feed they were firmly on my Girl About radar.
So when Elements got in touch to invite us to try their teddy bear’s picnic themed children’s menu I jumped at the opportunity. I can’t tell you the last time I enjoyed a delicious lunch out with my toddler. We have loads of fun but I’d pretty much resigned myself that civilised lunches at nice places were largely a thing of the past. I was intrigued to see whether this was the answer. In the week or so before, Lily was bubbling with excitement. I remained somewhat sceptical.
Thursday night a couple of weeks ago and my Dad was in town. My step-mum had gone to an ABBA event at the O2 and he didn’t really fancy getting all dressed up like a Super Trooper, so we decided to go out for a bite to eat. I’d been to The Stratford once before when it first opened in the summer and was impressed with their Stratford burger, so thought it was worth having another look.
