    My herbs/spices I put in my omelet (I mix these into the omelet mixture itself, rather than sprinkling on like I do with the veges): Chives, mixed herbs (thyme, rosemary, notsurewhatelseisinhere), lemon pepper, turmeric, cayenne pepper, normal pepper.

    My usual ingredients: Spinach (cover one whole half), sliced tomato, capers, red onion, baby bell peppers, green beans (don't care if it's not primal enough, I looove them), parmesan cheese.

    Also I love eating it with hummus. Again, I know it's not primal but I love hummus.

    I have an omelet pretty much every single day!
    thanks i love hummus too, but i never thought of putting it in an omelet.

    what is precooked bacon like? does that mean i can cut it up and just throw it in the omelet?

I bought a Bialetti nonstick pan at the grocery store for under $20 - cant remember the exact price. It works great for eggs. I do put a teeny bit of oil in the pan when cooking eggs. I've look at these pans online and they seem to cost more than what I paid at the Acme.
    The bialetti looks like a great pan

    do you know which one it is amongst these?

    Bialetti Aeternum Cookeware

    Bialetti Aeternum Evolution Saute Pans

    Bialetti Aeternum Easy Silver

    There is Saute, Evolution, and Easy. I don't know the reason for difference but what do you have?

    I do exactly the same with Spinach instead of mushrooms. Loads of spinach will wilt down to quite a manageable size in the pan. I have also used onions but they're more of a fag to carve up. Nothing is simpler than pre washed Spinach but I DO like mushrooms.

    so you cook the ingredients then add the eggs. interesting. so many ways to make omelet. i just want to make the kind where it all is inside the egg batter

    The easy silver looks like the one I have. It's also very light, which is good because heavy pans hurt my wrists. Also you need to watch your heat level on these. They heat up very efficiently.

    Other people may not think so, but I can't imagine mixing coconut oil with eggs. ICK. I like butter. Use ghee or clarified butter if you can because it doesn't burn.

    The pan has to be HOT. Hot enough to sizzle the eggs when they hit the pan, not just warm enough to melt the butter. This is important. The underside of the egg liquid has to cook and solidify immediately. If the egg stays liquid for even a few seconds, then the melted butter underneath will float to the top. The eggs will touch the pan without a layer of fat and they WILL stick.

    MY PRIMAL: I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I aim for 80-90 g carb/day and advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and other need to tweak Primal to their own needs.
