How to Calculate Atkins Net Carbs

Atkins Net Carbs = Total Carbohydrates – Fiber – Sugar Alcohols/Glycerin (if applicable)



  • 1 1/2 fl oz Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 2 tsp Dijon Mustard
  • 0 3/4 tsp Salt
  • 0 1/2 tsp Black Pepper
  • 0 1/2 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 4 large Egg (Whole)
  • 8 medium slice (yield after cooking) Bacon
  • 6 cup Spring Mix Salad
  • 1 cup, shredded Gruyere Cheese


  1. For dressing, combine lemon juice, mustard, salt and pepper in a blender; slowly pour in olive oil until dressing thickens. Or mix other ingredients in a medium bowl and slowly whisk in olive oil. Set aside.
  2. Poach eggs in an egg poacher, sauce pot or microwave. Cook until whites are set but yolks are still runny, about 4 minutes in an egg poacher or 2 minutes in microwave. Place in ice water until ready to use.
  3. Stack bacon and slice into 1- by 1/2-inch pieces; sauté over medium-high heat until nicely browned and crisp, about 3 minutes. Drain and set aside.
  4. To assemble salads, toss frisée with dressing and divide evenly on 4 plates. Sprinkle with bacon and cheese.
  5. To quickly reheat eggs, immerse in simmering water for 30 seconds. Place one egg on top of each salad and serve.
