Lets talk EGGS for a moment and just how amazing they are for us! Eggs are an awesome source of omega-3 fatty acids which helps to lower inflammation and triglycerides and reduce blood cholesterol levels. They also offer a good dose of choline which is imperative for optimal brain and liver function. In fact, according to Dr. Josh Axe, "the liver depends on choline to operate correctly, and one sign of a choline deficiency is poor liver function. Low choline levels are correlated with fatty liver disease, and some research in animals also indicates that choline deficiency may be linked to some types of cancers as well. Plus, in proper amounts, choline has also been found to treat certain brain issues, such as depression, and improve memory and cognitive function." Eggs are a terrific part of a KETO protocol as they offer an option that is low carb with optimal levels of protein and fat, in addition to being super nourishing! Keeping carbs low helps to regulate blood sugar and insulin which then keeps inflammation in check and therefore supports the immune system.
I had you at blueberry muffins, right? I mean my mouth watered a bit just typing it. Warm, fresh out of the oven Muffins with juicy blueberries is such a comforting, yummy thought. Think you can’t have them once you’ve ditched sugars and processed wheat based flours? Think again! This recipe gets a big win from my house!
OH man. I’m IN LOVE! This stuff is so delish. I decided last night to experiment with making my own “granola” sans grains with LOTS of healthy fats and HELLO pumpkin spice {of course you can omit and add whatever spice you prefer. But, come on now…it IS October!}. I honestly have been just enjoying this by itself. However, do what you like with it. Eat it with some full fat milk of whatever variety {I LOVE cashew milk} or have it on some full fat yogurt OR enjoy with some coconut cream {the canned, thick, delicious stuff}.
I make this every Christmas morning and sometimes Easter.  It’s a hit, supper yummy AND EASY!!! Great for those watching carb intake but wanting something tasty at a brunch.  You could absolutely add bacon, sausage, veggies if you'd like but it really is amazing as is. This recipe calls for regular flour, but I use almond flour to make it gluten free and more keto friendly. I also like to double the recipe so we have leftovers for a couple of days (it really doesn't last long at my house). It makes for an easy breakfast or snack that is full of protein and healthy fat. Just heat it up in the microwave.
