Nourish by Sadie Frost book reviewLemon and poppyseed omelettte recipe

Guten TAG lovely people.

So – you may have noticed that I haven’t posted for a whole week – SHOCK HORROR! Well, It has been my birthday – I just turned 27 and I think it’s going to be an awesome year! I spent a very LONG weekend in London seeing friends and family and it was absolutely what I needed. Thanks to my family and friends- particularly my parents – for making it so immense. My mum cooked such a ridiculously epic meal on Sunday.. when people sat down to eat, nobody said anything for a full 4 minutes because the food was so nice. I miss her cooking!

I went for Tapas with some friends on Friday night – at a place in Brixton called Gremio. It has a nice bar/restaurant vibe and the food is really good! I think most South Londoners will be familiar with it, but I thought I would include it just in case anyone wants Tapas in London. The prices are pretty reasonable!

One of my birthday presents from my parents, was Nourish. It’s a book by Sadie Frost and friends which has some great, unique healthy recipes as well as general tips on exercise and healthy living and I wanted to do a Nourish book review for you. The food photos and styling are beautiful, and it’s just a really interesting book. One of the recipes that struck me was the sweet omelette with lemon and poppyseed. I don’t know if I am the only one, but I have never come across a sweet omelette.. and it’s actually a great idea for people who love a pancake but want to avoid wheat and flour. While I would probably add half a cup of buckwheat or spelt flour to make the consistency slightly less eggy – it was definitely a nice concept and I think if I had added more agave nectar to the omelette it would have been better (I have adapted the recipe).

Another book that I got was Deliciously Ella’s book – and MAN did I want a spiralizer (a machine that makes vegetables into long strips). Luckily my sister got me one for my birthday – so I am kitted out for courgettini (courgette pasta). Keep your eyes peeled for this on the blog.

As part of her new book launch – here is a video on how to avoid bad eating habits!

Sweet lemon and poppyseed omelette recipe (makes 1 omelette)


  1. 2 free range eggs
  2. 1 tsp poppyseeds
  3. agave nectar or maple syrup
  4. rind of 1 lemon
  5. 1 heaped tsp coconut oil
  6. blueberries
  7. yoghurt
  8. agave nectar or maple syrup for drizzling


  1. Beat the eggs together until pale and fluffy - the more your beat them the lighter the omeletter will be
  2. Add in half the poppyseeds, half the lemon rind, a tsp of agave nectar or maple syrup and mix together
  3. Place a pan on medium heat and add the coconut oil until it covers the whole pan - add in the egg mix
  4. Cook omelette until it begins to go golden brown, then flip - the second side will only need about 30 seconds
  5. Serve and add yoghurt, agave, a sprinkling of poppyseed and lemon rind!
