Classic scrambled eggs | Low Carb Breakfast #6

Posted on

Here it is one more episode part of our Low Carb Breakfast series! And for today, I bring to you a very simple and classic breakfast option: Scrambled eggs.

You know, there are many versions of scrambled eggs out there, some use milk, others butter or cream. There is also the American style or even the French one! Options for everyone’s taste. Today’s video I’ll teach you the way we have here at home, in other words, the way I like the most: just eggs and a bit of butter.Without any fancy technique. 😛

Ingredients
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon of butter (or 1 tablespoon of coconut oil)
  • Black pepper and salt to taste
Directions
  1. Put a frypan on low heat, then add butter (or coconut oil) and let it melt.
  2. Next, add the slightly beaten eggs and season them with black pepper and salt to taste.
  3. Now, pay attention, these eggs MUST cook slowly, we don’t want overcooked and rubbery eggs. To ensure that, keep an eye on them while stirring gently. Do it until you feel the eggs are cooked enough (remember, we don’t want overcooked eggs).
  4. Once the eggs are cooked through, it’s done! Place them immediately on a plate and serve.

Paleo Breakfast Granola | Low Carb Breakfast #5

Posted on

Happy with our Low Carb Breakfast series? I hope this is helping you with several ideas to make a healthier and lower-in-carbs breakfast. 🙂

For today I thought about bringing this perfect Paleo and Gluten-free Breakfast Granola. It is super healthy and packed with good stuff: nuts, coconut flakes, seeds, flaxseed, and it uses honey as the sweetener, but you can totally ignore it from the ingredients list in case you need something even lower in carbs.

This works divinely as a topping on yoghurts or as a breakfast cereal with any milk of your choice (learn how to make cashew nut and coconut milk). The other positive thing is that you can change the ingredients according to your taste and, of course, with what you have available at home. Just keep the same proportions and everything will work fine.

Ah! Before I forget, you can leave it out of the fridge for a few days but it will last longer if you refrigerate it, something like two weeks.

Ingredients
  • 1 cup (140 grams) of mixed nuts, chopped (I’m using cashew nuts, almonds, and walnuts)
  • ½ cup (70 grams) of coconut flakes, unsweetened
  • ¼ cup of sunflower seeds
  • ¼ cup of sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons of flaxseed meal
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 tablespoon of honey (or any sweetener you like)
  • 1 tablespoon of coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
  • ¼ cup of dried fruits, chopped (I’m using dates)
Directions
  1. In a large bowl add all the nuts, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, flaxseed meal, coconut flakes, and salt. Mix them well and reserve.
  2. In saucepan add: honey, coconut oil, ground cinnamon, and ground nutmeg. Stir gently on low heat until everything melts. Then, turn off the heat and add vanilla extract.
  3. Pour this liquid over the nuts and seeds. Stir very well to coat all ingredients.
  4. Grease a large baking tray with some coconut oil and line it with baking paper. Spoon the mix into the tray and flatten using a spatula.
  5. Preheat oven to 165°C (330°F).
  6. We will bake in three stages. First, bake for about 12 minutes and then stir the mix. Then bake for 8-10 minutes and stir again.
  7. Finally, add the dried fruits, stir everything and bake for the last 4-5 minutes.
  8. Remove and let it cool completely. It should have turned crispy and dark golden brown.
  9. It’s done! You can leave it out of the fridge for a few days but it will last longer if you refrigerate it (up to two weeks).

Breakfast rolls | Low Carb Breakfast #4

Posted on

This is part four of our Low Carb Breakfast series! Have you seen the other videos already?

The main idea on today’s video is to use a nori sheet as a wrap. So I’ll give you a suggestion for the filling but feel free to add anything you like! It is very simple to put things together. You don’t need to be an authentic sushi master to pull this one off, trust me. 🙂

Sometimes I make it for lunch as well, especially when I’m going out for a hike, long walk or even to the beach!

Ingredients
  • 2 nori sheets (also known as seaweed sheets)
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 4 slices of cucumber, lengthwise sliced
  • 200 grams of chicken breast, shredded
Directions
  1. Place 1 nori sheet on a sushi mat (or non-stick baking paper) and layer half of the avocado slices on it. Make sure lo leave a small space close to the edges.
  2. Then, add two strips of cucumber, followed by half of the chicken breasts (100g).
  3. Now it’s time to roll it up! Gently lift the end of the mat closest to you and roll it over the ingredients to start the process. Continue rolling the mat forward to make a complete roll. With one hand on top, gently roll the mat back and forth a few times to get a nice and firm rounded shape.
  4. This recipe gives you two rolls, so follow the same steps to make the second one.
  5. It’s done! You can slice it in half before serving. 🙂

This recipe is very versatile and you can use many other things as the filling, use your creativity! Sometimes I make it for lunch and add some salad, cheese, tuna, and even ham! Go according to your taste. 🙂

3 ingredients pancake | Low Carb Breakfast #3

Posted on

Time for the third episode of our  Low Carb Breakfast series! Are you enjoying it?

On today’s video, you will learn how to make this very simple and delicious 3 ingredients pancake. I love to make these pancakes on Sunday mornings for a lazy breakfast! They are so easy and nutritious. Yum!

You can use this exact same recipe for other pancakes flavours, for example, sometimes I use 3 tablespoons of mashed sweet potato as a replacement for the banana or a simply add more nut butter. Check the directions below for the complete instructions.

Ingredients
  • ½ over-ripe medium banana
  • 2 tablespoons of peanut butter (or any nut butter)
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder (optional, but recommended)
  • ½ teaspoon of cinnamon (optional, but recommended)
Directions
  1. Add all ingredients in a blender. Keep in mind that the banana must be over-ripe to bring enough sweetness to our pancakes.
  2. Blend until everything is well combined.
  3. Warm a non-stick fry pan and grease it a little bit with coconut oil.
  4. Pour around ¼ of a cup of this mixture, letting it cook for like a minute, then flip to the other side.
  5. Keep doing that until your batter is gone. This recipe will give you 6 small pancakes.
  6. It’s done! Serve it warm, with some butter and extra bananas.
