INGREDIENTS

  • 1 medium whole (2-3/5" dia) Red Tomatoes
  • 3 medium (4-1/8" long) Scallions or Spring Onions
  • 0.5 pepper Jalapeno Peppers
  • 1 oz Cilantro
  • 1 tbsp Fresh Lime Juice
  • 4 large Egg (Whole)
  • 1 fl oz Tap Water
  • 3 medium slice (yield after cooking) Bacon
  • 1 tbsp Unsalted Butter Stick
  • 0.5 each California Avocados

DIRECTIONS

  1. Prepare salsa: Chop the tomatoes; finely chop the green onions and jalapeno (de-seed if you would like less heat).  In small bowl, combine tomato, green onions, jalapeño, cilantro and lime juice and mix well. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. In medium bowl, whisk eggs with water and season with salt and pepper.  Prepare bacon, cook thoroughly, crumble and set aside.
  3. Melt half the butter in a small nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. When foam subsides, add half the egg mixture. Tilt pan to coat bottom and cook 1 minute, until almost set. Sprinkle half the omelet with half the crumbled bacon, avocado and cheese and cook 1 minute.
  4. Fold empty half of omelet over filling and slide omelet onto a plate. Keep warm.
  5. Repeat with remaining butter, egg mixture, bacon, avocado and cheese. Serve with salsa.

How to Calculate Net Carbs

In the Atkins Nutritional Approach®, the Net Atkins Count™ is calculated by subtracting the number of grams of fibre and sugar alcohols (also known as polyols) from the total grams of carbohydrates in whole foods. This reflects the idea that fibre and sugar alcohols minimally impacts blood sugar levels at the doses present in the products.
