Quick simple breakfast

2 over easy eggs on a slice of turkey with pepper jack cheese.
Total- 5 carbs

Yum!
Simple :)

Low Carb Lox!


Who doesn’t love a thick New York style bagel smothered in cream cheese, topped with velvety ribbons of perfectly smoked salmon? Add a mimosa and this girl right here is in heaven. I love a good old fashioned lox bagel!

Unfortunately for me, if I look at a bagel I will gain 10 lbs. I am not even kidding. So I had to come up with a simple way to get my lox craving in without killing my 30 carbs a day “diet”. This is so simple it hurts. Yet so GOOD!!

The best thing about recreating this meal was that 2/3 items are basically carb free. Cream cheese can have 1-2 carbs in it which is totally fine. If you want to use cream cheese, use cream cheese. There are no rules here! :) But I took it a step further. I used the following.

Trader Joe’s Pastrami Style Smoked Salmonss1

 

and 1.5 tbsp of Mascarpone cheese. Mascarpone is nice because it has 0 carbs, it’s light and just went really well.

I literally just smeared the cheese on the wrap, added 2 slices of smoked salmon and bam. Done.

Total Net Carbs= 6.

This breakfast will be for sure on repeat. If you are low carbing it, DO THIS NOW!!

Latest obsession. So light and tasty! Steam shrimp. Let cool. Add whatever you want. I use a bit of mayo, horseradish sauce, Dijon mustard, dill, sea salt, old bay and pepper. I served it on a low carb tortilla. New favorite lunch.
