My favorite breakfast is a high protein pancake made with egg whites and whey protein.
It’s really quick & easy to do.
All you need is 1 scoop of whey protein and 3/4 cup of egg whites, 2 tbsp of daily cleanse fibers( Northcoast Natural) or flax seed meal.
Another one of my favorite meal and this one is really convenient when I am on the go or travelling is as I call them my turkey muffins.

3. Mix all your ingredients together in one large bowl.
4. Roll the mixture into balls and place in muffin pan. Muffins should be about the size of a racquetball.
5. Bake for 40 minutes.

One thing I like to do also to cut on carbs is to replace potato or my starches with cauliflowers.
I boil my cauliflowers , once it is cooked I remove the water and blend it in my Vitamix( blender) to make a puree.
I like to add chive, garlic power, bacon bite, spray butter, salt & pepper and sometimes a put Ghee butter or coconut oil to add extra fatty acid.
I eat my mash with aside of grilled asparagus and a portion of meat. Just like how I would eat mash potatoes. I also use this puree to mix with lean ground meat .
What I also like to do with cauliflowers is buns for a low carb burger.
For this recipe you need:
1 head, large (6-7″ dia) Cauliflower
1/4 cup Bob’s Red Mill Almond Meal Flour
2 tbsp Bob’s Red Mill Organic High Fiber Coconut Flour
1 large Egg
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tbsp Rosemary
1/2 tsp Salt
Grate your cauliflower, then mix all ingredients together.
Form into flat circles onto a well oiled baking sheet. Cook at 180 degrees (C) for approx 30 mins or until they are golden brown and firm to the touch. Remove from baking sheet and place onto a cooling rack to cool. Makes 14 3 inch buns
I like to make my burger using ground bison for the meat and mash avocado instead of mayo .
Finally, one of my other tips for a low carb meal is to use zucchini squash or spaghetti squash instead of pasta.
How to do the zucchini spaghetti:
Cut lengthwise slices from zucchini using a vegetable peeler, stopping when the seeds are reached. Turn zucchini over and continue ‘peeling’ until all the zucchini is in long strips; discard seeds. Slice the zucchini into thinner strips resembling spaghetti.
Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir zucchini in the hot oil for 1 minute. Add water and cook until zucchini is softened, 5 to 7 minutes. Season with salt and pep
How to cook the squash spaghetti :
With a very sharp knife, lop off the top or bottom of the squash so that it will stand flat and secure on your cutting board.
Slice the squash in half lengthwise
Using a spoon, scrape out the seedy innards
Heat oven to 375 degrees.
Brush the inside of each half with olive oil and sprinkle with coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Place cut sides down on a rimmed baking sheet and put sheet into the oven.
Bake for about 40 minutes, or until you can easily pierce the squash with a fork.
Let cool for about 15 minutes, or until squash is cool enough to handle. With a fork, scrape out the spaghetti-like strands and prepare as desired.
Now hope low carb don’t sound boring anymore and that you will enjoy those few tips and healthy meals.
