I did not much care for omelets until I lived with parrots for a while. Now I am a fan of them. All my birds love them. They make a good food to parrot foodhide things, like fresh vegetables and herbs, a bird otherwise don’t want to eat.

In Italy I learned to make, the Italian version of an omelet, called frittata with onion, garlic and zucchini. Shortly after discovering that parrots need some animal protein and most of them love eggs, I started to play with this recipe. By now omelets are once or twice a week on the menu list of parrot foodparrot food in my house. The great thing is, they are so yummy, that if you have only one or a few birds you can share them with them. And you can throw in almost everything you find in your garden.

Just an example here:

I harvest about 10 leafs each of one of the mints, basil, lovage, and oregano and chop them up into small pieces. Chop a small clove of garlic. Ad all of this to beat up two eggs and mix it well. Heat some coconut oil a pan and fry the omelete mix on each side by medium heat until each  lightly brown. Don’t eat it all, leave some for your birds;-).
