You Gotta Love Eggs Benedict!
Low carb style! Eggs are one of the most versatile foods on Earth! Fried, poached, boiled, emulsified, beaten, whipped, baked, separated, souffled or eaten raw- eggs are a must! They’re full of fat and protein, with very little carbs, which makes them perfect for anyone on a ketogenic diet. The average large egg contains 5g of fat, 7g of protein and about 0.4g of carbs. Most nutrition labels round down on the carb count as it’s minimal, but it’s good to note. They are also good sources of choline and lutein, both important nutrients for brain and eye health.
When buying eggs, it’s important to know where they’re coming from (as much as you can infer from the package). Egg cartons these days are full of labels and certifications claiming their chickens are well taken care of. Some of those claims are simple marketing tactics and mean nothing; it’s important to recognize them. Learn how to know where your eggs are coming from in our Egg Label Guide!
And if you don’t have any oopsie rolls on hand, here’s the recipe! You can make a big batch of them and used them for savory and even sweet dishes. They’re a keto staple!
Once you’ve got a dozen eggs that came from a good source, you’re ready to make some delicious and healthy low carb Eggs Benedict. If you’re on an Egg Fast, this recipe is perfect! Perhaps the Canadian bacon doesn’t follow the rules entirely, but that can easily be omitted.
