Making low carb simple
- Whisk together eggs and cream in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
- Heat the butter over medium heat in a non-stick frying pan. Spread out the cheese in an even layer so it covers the entire base of the pan. Fry over medium heat until bubbly.
- Carefully pour the egg mixture over the cheese and lower the heat. Cook for a few minutes without stirring.
- Fill one half of the omelet with mushrooms, tomatoes, baby spinach, cream cheese, turkey and oregano. Fry for a few minutes more.
- When the egg mixture starts to set (it can still be quite loose on top, but not too loose), fold the empty half over the side with toppings to form a crescent. Fry for a few more minutes and enjoy!
There are an infinite number of ways to vary the filling. Here are a few suggestions: mozzarella and pesto; taco mince and avocado; smoked salmon, cream cheese, and baby spinach; tuna, mayonnaise, and scallions.
Depending on your product choices, there are about 6-7 net carbs in the dairy products. HWC ~2, Shredded Cheese ~2.6, Cream Cheese ~1-2. The vegetables and spice account for the remaining carbs.
Great! So glad you love it!
Yes, it's so versatile! This is one of my personal favorites also! So glad you love it!
Aged or mature cheeses are firmer in texture and tend to be aged for 6 months or longer. The longer the aging process, the more concentrated or sharp the flavor. Cheddar, Swiss, Parmesan, and Gruyère are examples of aged cheeses.
You could try unsweetened coconut cream, coconut milk, or almond milk.
We recommend eating to hunger, so there's no need to force yourself to eat if you're not hungry.
Yes! Great tip! :)
Parmegiano, Pecorino, Cheddar, Gruyere are all hard cheeses that we're matured for months.
This one is a large portion, but you don't have to eat it all :) Eat to your hunger and save the rest for later.
This is a very satisfying meal :) I share it with my 17 yo son when I have it as I can't eat the entire thing.
The recipe has been tweaked a bit, but 5g net carbs is accurate for the recipe that shows now.
That is fantastic news about your blood sugar staying in range!
