Unfortunately, it seems that pretty much every low carb breakfast option on the planet involves a generous helping of eggs in one form or another. So what’s a guy to do when he wants to break fast on something that doesn’t contain a high load of carbohydrates?
Well, one of the simplest answers — and the one that I most often use — is to eat whatever you had for supper last night. But for some reason, here in the West people aren’t too keen on that.
So here’s a quick concoction that I quite enjoy for breakfast.
Organic deli meat “wraps”
Take a few slices of organic deli meat like roast beef or turkey (the organic part is important — you want to avoid the nitrites / nitrates in conventional deli meat like the plague). Slice some English cucumber in long thin slices. Throw some cucumber and some alfalfa sprouts in each slice of deli meat and roll it up into a “wrap.” If you don’t mind a few extra calories and carbs, throw in a sprinkle of organic cashews in there before you wrap ‘em up.
That’s all for today. I’ll cover the whole nitrate / nitrite thing in a future Fit Foodie. It’s one of those hidden evils that most people don’t know about.
