Ingredients

  • 4 tbsp 4 tbsp butter or coconut oil
  • 8 8 eggeggs
  • salt and pepper

Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Heat butter or coconut oil in a frying pan over medium heat.
  2. Crack your eggs straight into the pan. You can also crack them into a measuring cup and carefully pour into the pan to avoid splattering of hot grease. For eggs sunny side up, leave the eggs to fry on one side and cover the pan with a lid to make sure they get cooked on top. For eggs cooked over easy, flip the eggs over after a few minutes and cook for another minute.
  3. Season with salt and pepper.

Tips

Serve with fresh arugula, crisp lettuce, a dollop of homemade mayonnaise and fresh herbs! Perfection!

Keto: Dairy free #6

Following a healthy dairy-free diet doesn’t have to mean depriving yourself — and this week’s meal plan is proof of that.

On the menu, we have some spice-heavy keto dishes like our Sindhi-style lamb curry. Additionally, there are some quick and easy weeknight favorites such as our tasty tuna zoodle salad and chicken stir-fry.

While following this plan, if you’re not a big fan of certain ingredients, feel free to swap them. If, for example, you don’t enjoy eating lamb, you could always substitute it for chicken or beef.

The same goes for vegetables. If there’s something you don’t fancy, change it for another low-carb veggie. Check out our visual vegetable guide for more inspiration.

Get ready to enjoy some of our favorite keto meals while staying below 20 grams of net carbs per day.

    I love fried eggs on a bed of fried cabbage and onions.

    Bacon and eggs are the nutritional equivalent of siamese twins with no chance of separation. Why replace bacon with green stuff? That's like taking Bruce Dickinson out of Iron Maiden and plopping Justin Bieber in his place. :-)

    This gives me a confusing message since reading, carefully, your article on protein http://www.dietdoctor.com/low-carb-high-fat-not-protein.

    "Note

    The nutritional facts (press “strict low carb” above) are based on the eggs and the optional cheese."

    I don't see any mention of cheese in the recipe?

    When I change the person count from the default of 4 to 1, how do I save that to go onto the next meal selection when planning my week?

    Yes, egg whites are fine. Just make sure the meal has added fats as well.

    Yes, just keep an eye on the carb count in the cream.

    Is there total carbs listed in the nutrition area?

    Our recipes list net carbs, but if you click the nutrition+ tab under the list of ingredients, you can also see the fiber amount which you can add to the carb count to get total carbs. In this recipe, there is no fiber, so total carbs is also 1g.

    That 4 is the number of servings. So, 8 eggs at 4 servings = 2 eggs per plate.
