Nesting Eggs

Print

I created this yummy new way to eat your eggs. It gives you that craving for a breakfast pastry, but without all the flour and carbs! It’s all egg! This is great for my Type 1 Diabetes condition because it is all protein and no harmful processed carbs that would spike my blood sugar!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

These eggs are a high-protein way to start your day. Eggs are rich sources of cholesterol and vitamin A. Cholesterol is an integral component of our cell membranes, and serves as an insulator for our nervous system. Vitamin A plays many roles in eye health & vision, as well as being a key player for our immune system. This recipe is also a great source of calcium, which you can find in most dairy products. Calcium is critical for strong bones & teeth. As this recipe does not contain flour, it is gluten-free. Keep in mind that carbohydrates are not inherently bad, just make sure to choose whole grains and complex carbohydrates like brown rice and sweet potatoes more often.

The addition of bacon and cheese make this recipe a meal I would recommend to only eat occasionally if you are an individual with heart disease or high blood pressure.
