Eggs are one of the most nutritious foods on the planet. Before switching to a low carb high fat diet, I barely ate any eggs. Now I have them most mornings and I find that I will not get remotely hungry until about 2pm. I was initially of course, worried that my cholestrol and heart health would suffer, but that has not been the case. My blood tests for all cholestrols, triglycerides and fasting bloods sugars had improved significantly 1 year into this way of eating.

Todays breakfast was an omlette with some left over bacon from the weekend. You can also add some scallions and cheese, tomatoes if you are feeling adventurous. The photo is of my 6 year olds breakfast. Full fat milk on the side. This takes approx 3 minutes to cook, so no excuses about not having enough time. If you still think that this is too time consuming then hard boil a batch of eggs the night before and they will be ready. Very tasty with a tomato and a pinch of salt.

Its also worth noting that only good fats should be used for cooking your eggs, i.e. no transfats or seed oils, instead butter, coconut oil, chicken fat pork fat etc. It hard to get your head around this one initially, but more on this another day!
