Open-Faced Apple Chicken Omelette

I had another busy weekend full of cooking!¬†This time, though, the results were substantially healthier. Which is good.

Getting 65% of your caloric intake from fat is somewhat challenging, and has required me to get a bit creative. Lunch and snacks have been easy because I just eat a bunch of cheese and nuts, but for dinner I look to add a bit more variety, and I do that with avocados and hummus (both high in healthy fats).
