Super-Simple Low-Carb Breakfast – Scrambled Eggs

Low-carb breakfastAre you bored with eggs? They are the obvious choice for a low-carb breakfast. If only they were a bit less bland.

But they are low in carbs, high in protein and fat, packed with vitamins and nutrients. So let’s not give up on eggs. Let’s make them more interesting instead.

Low-Carb Scotch Eggs – a Perfectly Portable Parcel of Protein

Low-Carb Scotch Eggs - perfect low-carb breakfastThe Scotch egg is an all-time classic British recipe, beloved in its homeland. If you are not from Britain, you might find it a big baffling. But it really is a brilliant recipe. Basically, it is an egg wrapped in a sausage. Simple and clever!

It comes out as a small and perfectly portable parcel of protein and fat. Ideal for a low-carb breakfast on the go or a quick snack.

Traditional recipe calls for the breadcrumbs coating for the eggs. For a low-carb version, we just swap breadcrumbs for almond flour, or just skip this step. Keep reading “Low-Carb Scotch Eggs – a Perfectly Portable Parcel of Protein”

pancakeShrove Tuesday is here – time for some pancake action! If you haven’t tried making low-carb, gluten-free pancakes before, this recipe is super-simple and produces very genuine tasting pancakes.

The main substitution we need to make is to use almond flour instead of wheat flour. You might need to experiment a little with the amount of added moisture to get just the right texture (as not all almond flours are exactly the same). I use water but you can also try milk instead.
