Best pans to cook nutritious omelets in the morning!
Eating an egg-based breakfast is preferred by most health-conscious people because eggs are a rich source of protein, calcium, and several important nutrients such as vitamin B6, B12 and vitamin D. Now if you add a sprinkle of cooked grains and vegetables along with some spices for seasoning, then you have a perfectly wholesome meal for breakfast!
Yes, eating an omelet is a delicious way to enjoy the health value eggs have to offer. But one must avoid making omelets in a metal pan using fats or oils for multiple reasons. First, the reactive metal (or the non-stick coating) may leach and contaminate your food. Second, the oils are likely to break down into unhealthy trans-fat. Moreover, the nutrients are destroyed because of harsh heat radiating from the metal.
The better alternative would be to use a healthy pan. MEC’s pure clay pan is perfect for the job. Miriams Earthen Cookware (MEC) is a US based company that makes pots and pans from the purest form of primary clay harvested from almost 20 feet below top soil. They do not use additives, chemicals, or glazes, and handcraft each piece so no chemicals from machines come into contact with the clay.
Using MEC’s pure clay pan for making omelet has many benefits:
Your omelet stays uncontaminated
Primary clay is naturally non-toxic and as the makers do not add any glazes or chemicals, there is no leaching into food during cooking. As a result, your omelet stays uncontaminated and super healthy.
The nutrients are preserved
MEC clay radiates gentle far infrared heat that cooks without damaging nutrients. This heat penetrates food and thoroughly cooks it from inside out, all on low heat.
MEC pans are naturally non-stick – no need to add oils
When you cook water-based recipes first 5-6 times, MEC pans become naturally non-stick. It is one-of-a-kind non-stick cookware that does not use toxic coatings (like conventional non-stick pans).
Using oils for lubrication or as a release agent is a common practice to prevent the egg from sticking to the base while making an omelet. But there is no need for lubrication when you are making an omelet in a MEC’s naturally non-stick pan. A sprinkle of water can be substituted instead of oil!
To summarize, your omelet stays uncontaminated, highly nutritious and tastes delicious when cooked in an MEC pan. Because of all the nutritional value, you will also feel fuller and more energetic.
