Scrambled Eggs and Bacon

Scrambled eggs and bacon are as quick and easy as preparing cereals or toast in the morning and ideal to start your low carb day.

You could pre-prepare my breakfast muffin recipe if you want your breakfast made and ready to go; however remove the leeks if you are low carbing to lose weight as they do push up the carb count. Bacon, Mushroom and Leek Egg Muffins

Using the recipe below, I put the bacon into the oven whilst I take a shower and dress, so by the time I’m ready, then so is the bacon. It then takes no more than 5 minutes to prepare, cook and serve my very low carb breakfast. Recipe below is only 1g net carb per portion.

Tomato, Bacon and Mushroom Soup

My Tomato, Bacon and Mushroom Soup is a perfect nutrient packed dish for anytime of the day. I was thinking, why shouldn’t we eat soup for breakfast?  Well we eat Smoothies don’t we? So why not soup?

Using three traditional ingredients from a full English breakfast I made this creamed soup, and yes it worked. The taste is reminiscent of baked bean juice, but much more fulfilling and meaty. Eating soup for breakfast did feel strange but I often make a smoothie, the definition according to Dictionary.com is a thick beverage of fruit puréed in a blender with ice and milk, yoghurt or juice; so why not a thick beverage of vegetables?

Only 7 net carbs per portion, a perfect start to the day.

Bacon, Mushroom and Leek Egg Muffins

These little Egg Muffins are a brilliantly versatile item for any lunch box. One of the things I find most difficult about watching my carbs is food on the go. Maybe office lunch or a picnic with friends.    These wonderful muffins give a variety of easy and cheap alternatives to fulfil midday hunger.

The muffins can be made quickly and easily in advance and will hold up in the fridge for at least 3 days. They can be frozen and can be taken out as they required. Depending on your chosen filling, they can become a little watery once defrosted, but they really are so quick to make you may prefer to make a fresh batch as required.

Perfect to eat cold, but if you have the facilities to heat them, such as a microwave then they are even more gorgeous. Net Carbs 7g per muffin.
