My Diet Journey: Fried Eggs and Tomatoes 番茄炒蛋

Ever since I started on this south beach diet, I’ve been cooking for myself. And all I’ve been eating evolves around western style dishes like baked fillet, pan-fried chicken, roasted veggies etc. This morning after having some french toast sticks and away from eggs for breakfast, I decided to bring eggs to my dinner instead. So I made the most basic yet most popular Chinese dish of all time, Fried Eggs and Tomatoes 番茄炒蛋.

Fried Eggs and Tomatoes 番茄炒蛋



1 Large egg

1 Medium size tomato

1 dash of chicken powder aka. chicken broth mix (optional)

1/2 tsp of salt

1 dash of sweetener (depending on how sweet the tomatoes are)

1 tbsp of olive oil


1. Beat egg in a bowl and mix with chicken powder. Cut tomato in wedge form.

2. Heat skillet with Olive oil. In medium-low heat, pour egg into skillet and layer it like you would do your omelette.

3. When egg is half-cooked, scramble it up and put to the side of the skillet.

4. Add tomatoes into the other side and cook for 2 minutes. Add salt and fry them.

5. Mix the scrambled eggs with the tomatoes. The egg will absorb the flavour of the salt from the tomato juice.

6. Simmer for 1 minute and serve.

Healthy and delicious

I would prefer to serve this dish with a bowl of rice or noodles of some sort, yet I am not allowed to have rice so I serve it with some veggies. It is still very tasty and definitely boost up my appetite. This is the first dish I made in my south beach diet plan that allows me to use my chopsticks! woohoo~
