Low Carb Egg Recipes


World Egg Day is celebrated every year on the second Friday in October! For those following a low carb diet, such as Atkins 20, Atkins 40, or Atkins 100 this day is the perfect holiday to celebrate because eggs are low in carbs while high in protein. If you’re not quite sure which low carb recipes you want to celebrate this holiday with, then check out the recipes below! From dessert egg recipes to egg recipes for breakfast, you’ll be well prepared for World Egg Day.

Eggs Scrambled with Asparagus, Bacon and Swiss Cheese

This recipe will be a great way to start out your day, and it will work for individuals following all Atkins Phases. In addition, this recipe only has 3.6 carbs in one serving. More importantly, this dish has bacon in it! The flavors of bacon, Swiss cheese, and asparagus will combine perfectly for a smoky but fresh-tasting dish.

Eggs Scrambled with Feta and Spinach

This is another delicious egg recipe for breakfast that is very low in carbs—it has 2.3 net carbs per serving. In fact, this recipe is approved for all phases of the Atkins diet. Tangy feta cheese adds the perfect flavor to this meal. On its own, feta can sometimes be too strong, but when combined with eggs, it adds just the right amount of seasoning. Spinach tastes good when added to eggs and will make this dish even more nutritious.

Poached Eggs over Tomato, Avocado and Muenster
