How are Net Carbs Calculated?

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
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack Cheese

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 order to calculate Net Carbs of any whole food item, it's a simple calculation based on the Nutrition Facts panel:

Total Carbohydrates - (Minus) Dietary Fiber = (Equals) Net Carbs

For low carb products sweetened with sugar alcohols (ie: glycerin, maltitol, etc), refer to the Nutrition Facts panel of the product:

Total Carbohydrates - (Minus) Dietary Fiber - (Minus) Sugar alcohol = Net carbs

This reflects the fact that Dietary Fiber doesn't impact blood sugar levels. Sugar alcohols also have a negligible impact on blood sugar, they too are subtracted from total carbs to yield the Net Carb count.
