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.
Mission Soft Taco Carb Control Wraps– link here
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!!
