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.
