Cheese omelette with friends

Or: I’LL EAT EVERYTHING WITH PROTEIN AFTER GOING TO THE GYM (AND YET MORE)

Ingredients

  • A Gruyere cheese omelette/scrambled eggs hybrid
  • Some bacon strips (already cooked, from M&S)
  • LOTS of rocket and watercress salad
  • Sliced red pepper
  • Dash of olive oil of course

I don’t really think this needs preparation instructions!

I was so hungry after today’s training! The only thing I don’t quite like about the bacon strips is they’re so goddamn salty 😟
