Who’s the Sheikh of Chic?

Perhaps no other designer of the last century could be so globally recognizable by a handful of visual cues than the designer nicknamed “The Sheikh of Chic”. In his 45-year career as a Rome-based couturier, he created such an image of romantic excess in his clothes and in his life that he became known professionally by only his first name.

Check out the pictures and guess who it might be!

Melted Peppercheese Egg

Ingredients for 1 portion:

1 whole egg+ 1 egg white

1 slice low-fat pepper cheese (or cheese of your choice)

Non stick frying pan

Veggies

Bread

Preheat a non stick frying pan. If you don’t have one you can take a piece of kitchen paper add some olive oil and wipe out the pan (no need to use much oil for this recipe because you’ll get enough healthy fats already from egg yolk and cheese).

Fry the eggs first then sprinkle the cheese over them, after that flip as to make an “egg over easy”, wait until cheese starts melting then flip again and take from the hot plate.

(If you use pepper cheese or any other that is very aromatic you won’t need to add any additional salt, pepper or other spices!)

Serve either with salad or some whole wheat bread, pita, toast with flax seed or whole grains.

The recipe is super fast to prepare and most important very delicious!
