If you are looking to change up breakfast from the "regular" eggs", try this!  Husband approved!

100g Riced Cauliflower, raw (if you like a softer "oatmeal" weigh out cooked riced cauliflower and used a cooked entry in Cronometer)

200g egg white 

50g egg yolk  (Egg weights equate to about 3 eggs plus added white) 

75g unsweetened Almond milk  

1 t Vanilla extract 

1/2 t Cinnamon 

5 drops of stevia at end to desired level of flavor 

25g Blueberries     

Salt taste (it brings out many flavors!)                                                      

Mix all ingredients except Stevia and blueberries in a bowl  

In a pot, heat on medium, stirring constantly and bring to a slow boil. It will thicken.  If eating right away, cook to desired thickness. If prepping, leave it a little loose for reheating.   

Add Stevia drops, Serve with blueberries or chill in fridge. I did make this in bulk and divide out and it was perfect.

Ground beef, Spaghetti Squash, Keto, Low Carb, Paleo

Spaghetti Squash is a fantastic and easy replacement for pasta.  My favorite way to cook it is in an InstantPot.  Cut it in quarters, scoop out the seeds and place 1 cup of water and the quarters in the InstantPot.  Set it for 10 minutes.  When it is done, release the steam and let it cool.  Using a fork, scrape the Squash out of the skin.  Make a meaty sauce for the top based on your personal macros, but the variations are limitless!  Beef and diced tomato, Chicken and olive oil with garlic, whatever you are in the mood for!

Shrimp scampi, keto, low carb, palmini noodles

Shrimp is an AWESOME protein source, easy to make and very filling!  This weekend, I made Shrimp "scampi" for dinner.  It should have been over Palmini Noodles...but they arrived from Amazon about 15 minutes after Shrimp Scampi over Cauliflower rice it was!  

Palmini Noodles are "linguine" made from hearts of palm.  I order them on Amazon since they are only found at Publix grocers. They have similar nutritional stats to Cauliflower Rice, so can be interchanged fairly easily!

150g raw peeled, deveined shrimp

15g olive oil

5g dried Italian seasoning

.5tsp parsley flakes

2g sea salt

2g cracked pepper

10g diced garlic cloves

110g cauliflower rice OR Palmini noodles

In a bowl mix the Olive Oil, Italian Seasoning, Parsley, Salt and Pepper

Place in Medium heated skillet and spread.  Add raw shrimp and cook until shrimp is done.  Add diced garlic cloves.

Add riced cauliflower and heat through, stirring to prevent burning.  If you choose to use Palmini noodles instead or riced cauliflower, macros for 100g of Palmini are almost identical to cauliflower rice.
