Sarah sent this and it looks so good.  Great hearty breakfast using a 1 carb tortilla, shredded cheddar cheese, bacon, eggs and avocado.  Such a great way to start the day before hitting the slopes. Honestly, breakfast is just the best when you are living low carb!

Quick and easy breakfast

12 Oct

No time for frying pans and all the mess, here is a simple delicious way to prepare eggs.  Now there is no excuse for not having breakfast! Thanks Betsy for sharing this great recipe.

Coat a microwave-safe large coffee mug or custard cup with cooking spray or butter. The eggs will rise so be sure to cover the entire area.  Add two eggs, 2 T cream, salt and pepper. Beat with fork until blended. Cook on full power for 35-40 seconds and stir. Continue cooking unti eggs are set, about 40 seconds longer. (microwave times vary) Top with shredded cheese if desired.

Above is a great quick way to have breakfast, but here is my absolutely favorite way to have breakfast.  Breakfast in bed brought to me by room service. I am not sure which is better breakfast in bed or eating sausages with no guilt whatsoever? A toss up.. 

Bacon Shortage?

25 Sep

Say it ain’t so!  One of the perks of low carb eating is having bacon with no guilt. Rumor has it there will be a pork shortage in the coming months.  All due to drought conditions that have led to smaller herds of pigs in Europe and the United States.

Make your own “bread”

20 Sep

I found this recipe for Oopsies while searching online for low carb bread. They remind me of a Gougère.  But much quicker to do and no flour or cheese.  I suppose with a little fiddling cheese could be added. They are very eggy and nothing like bread but it makes a great base for a ham and cheese melt. I think a sweetened version would be easy, add a little splenda to the batter and make one large Oopsie.  Spread with whipped cream and berries.

Oopsie Bread (makes 6 medium)

Preheat oven to 300 degrees and prepare baking sheet with parchment paper.

3 large eggs, separated (whites in one bowl, yolks in another)

3 ounces of cream cheese

pinch of salt

1/2 tsp baking powder

Beat yolks with cream cheese and baking powder until creamy. Whip egg whites with pinch of salt until very stiff peaks form. 

Gently add egg whites into the yolk mixture, taking care not to break down egg whites.

Mound 6 separate oopsies on prepared baking sheet spread a little to create a circle. Option-make one large oopsie for a dessert.

Bake for 30 minutes until golden brown on top. 

Ham & Cheese Melt with Oopsie Bread

Keep your toasters!

I have been on the lookout for low carb bread that tastes good. I had heard about Julian Bakery bread but until recently it was not available in our area. This week I found it frozen in the health food section of our local grocery store. I bought the cinnamon raisin loaf.  It is so good! I am not just saying that because it has been 4 months since I had a piece of bread, at least I don’t think I am. The protein count of 14g/slice and fiber count of 13g/slice and net carbs of 2g/slice is so impressive. 

This fits perfectly in my low carb life.  In my short experience with this bread, I am so full after eating one slice that I don’t feel hungry for hours.  Look there are even raisins in it!

This bread is only available frozen in my area, which works out great.  It will keep for a long time and is easy to grab a slice to toast and add lots of butter! This would be a great snack with low carb natural peanut  butter.
