When it comes to healthy goodness, it’s hard to beat eggs. Eggs have so many nutrients that we love, from 13 grams of protein in two large eggs to important nutrients like iron, choline, vitamin A and vitamin E. One of the nutrients that eggs are low on is carbohydrates: there’s only 1 gram of carbohydrate in two eggs, making them an ideal food to eat if you’re following a lower carbohydrate diet. While we still love pairing eggs with healthy carbs like fruit, whole grains, starchy vegetables and milk, if you’re looking for low carb keto-friendly options we have you covered!
The good news is that when it comes to keto-friendly, low-carb recipes, the egg-based options are truly endless. Want to know what we’re making on repeat this summer (and all year round)? Take a look at these recipes that are lower on the carbohydrates:
