Low carb breakfast recipes

omelette-la

I believe many people struggle with the breakfast. My two favorites are:

Mixed platter with avocado, cucumber, ham or any other kind of meat, eggs mashed in butter or coconut oil, etc.

Greek yogurt (plain, organic, 10 % fat) with berries, mixed nuts (walnuts, Brazil nuts, almonds, hazelnuts pecans), small amounts of seeds (pumpkin and sunflower seeds), and coconut flakes.

Some people prefer only Bulletproof coffee as breakfast and if you are not hungry or don’t give yourself time to eat breakfast, perhaps it’s a good choice, but personally I prefer proper food with more nutrients.

Here you have some more breakfast recipes from Authority Nutrition. However, you will want to skip fruit, syrup and honey! Small amounts of berries should be enough, if they won’t give you cravings.

I know that eggs are a favorite for many but don’t eat eggs every day. Three to four times a week is enough, because it is very easy to become allergic to eggs if you are eating them every day. Try to have three to four different breakfast dishes to choose from.

If you still don’t know how to think about low carb eating, you can always repeat 10 times ;-)

“Low-fat foods, sugar, and grains make me fat. 
High-fat foods make me thin.”

According to Gallup it’s a long way to go.

Do you have some good low carb breakfast recipes to share?

Swedish Breakfast Buns (gluten free, low carb)

buns

Last weekend I made these super easy, gluten free breakfast buns. So good! In fact one of the best recipes I have tried. I did mine “big” with butter, cheese, ham, cucumber, and bell pepper.

Authority Nutrition has done this fabulous gathering of gluten free low carb, bread recipes. So, the ones above are the Swedish Breakfast buns and next time I will try the Flatbread.

So, why use coconut flour and almond flour instead of all-purpose gluten free flour? Because the all purpose flour is not low carb and very often can spike your blood sugar levels very high, exactly as most of the gluten free products in a grocery store.

Stay tuned for more gluten free, low carb recipes!

Cauliflower “rice”

In the previous post My Big Fat Diet they ate a lot of cauliflower and to be perfectly honest I love cauliflower as well.

Be careful and try not to eat too much raw cauliflower though, or raw green cabbage, broccoli etc., if you have thyroid problems. Heat them up! (Google Goitrogens and read more about it).

Here you have a video about making cauliflower “rice.”

Read what Dr. Mercola has to say about the health benefits of cauliflower.

If you want mashed cauliflower just add some more butter and/or cheese and/or heavy whipping cream.

Real-fast-food with meat

food

This is delicious, real-fast-food, without a proper recipe.

  1. Cut good quality raw meat or poultry into pieces. You can even use ground beef.
  2. Slowly over low heat fry the meat in butter, ghee or coconut oil until done. Do not burn! Add salt and any other favorite spices.
  3. Add sliced vegetables like onions, broccoli, cauliflower, green cabbage, celery, bell pepper, or other favorites from the shopping list. Fry slowly for five minutes, or until done and add more spices if necessary.
  4. Eat it with a “quick-guacamole” – put the contents of some avocados in a bowl, mix it with a fork or a hand blender. Add salt and some drops of lemon juice.

Feel free to experiment with different kinds of meat and vegetables. Plan the meals otherwise it is easy to fail. Make sure to fry with enough butter, ghee or coconut oil, or add extra on when ready, because the fat and avocado will make you feel full.

Sit down by the dinner table and eat, as many meals as possible, with the rest of the family or your friends. Oh no, no TV, smart phone or computer; food is a family affair. It is well known that if you eat without concentrating on the food you will probably eat more than you need. Eat slowly until you feel full. Have a nice meal!
