Why eat eggs on a keto diet?
Eggs are highly considered one of the healthiest and certainly one of most versatile foods to eat on any diet. Some reasons to eat eggs on a keto diet are:
- Eggs are low carb and high protein with just 1g net carbs and 6g of protein in one egg.
- Eggs are inexpensive and an easily available food to buy just about anywhere.
- There are many ways to eat eggs. Some examples are fried, poached, boiled and scrambled. Also they can be made into omelets, quiches, frittatas, muffins, wraps, crepes, meringues and noodles.
- You can cook eggs quickly and easily.
- Eggs contain just a little bit of almost every nutrient such as Vitamins A, B2, B5, B6, B12, D, E, K, calcium and zinc. (source)
The easiest way to make an omelet.
This is the easiest way to prepare eggs in my opinion. I learned it while reading a fiction book for my book club! They come out perfect every time.
- Add a teaspoon of butter to a small skillet or omelet pan (about 8″ in diameter) and wait until it starts to melt and sizzle.
- Meanwhile whisk 3 eggs and whatever herbs or spices you are using and pour into the sizzling pan.
- Next cover the pan with a lid and turn the heat down to medium low.
- After a few minutes take off the lid and add the cheese if using and cover again.
- When a few minutes have passed, take off the lid and make sure the omelet is cooked through.
- Slide off the pan and fold it onto a plate. (Check this post for 5 keto omelet flavor combinations.)
