High Protein Recipes

Avocado Egg Cups

I love the simplicity and elegance of this low carb breakfast. It’s so easy to make this up on a busy morning and the end result is so impressive that you could serve this at your next brunch. Come on – you brunch don’t you?

The carb count doesn’t include salsa or cheese but if you’re not in Phase 1 of a high protein eating plan you can indulge in those extras.

Fat and calorie alert! If you’re on a low calorie or low fat eating plan, this breakfast is NOT the way to go. If low fat or low calorie is your plan of choice check out one of our other healthy breakfast recipes.

2 servings = 2 carbs per serving

Ingredients:

1 Hass avocado

2 eggs

pinch each sea salt and black pepper

Instructions:

Cut a small slice from each side of the avocado so that each half won’t roll around in the pan. Cut avocado in half. Remove and discard pit. Use a spoon to remove about 2 tablespoons of avocado so that you have a space large enough for an egg to fit into.

Pour one cup of water into a baking dish. If you have any broth handy use that instead of water to give your avocado cups a little extra flavor. Place avocados into the dish. Crack one egg into each avocado cavity. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until the whites are set.

Remove from oven and eat as is or season with hot sauce. And if you’re at my table you’ll have to wrestle the hot sauce away from me. Now that I think of it, I should probably give everybody their own personal bottle of hot sauce.

I've always abhorred the idea that the only way to lose weight is to starve yourself, eat foods that are foreign to you, or gulp down special weight loss potions. I've proved that it is not only possible, but it's easy and fun to lose weight The UnDiet way. The UnDiet is extremely flexible, allowing you to make deviations based on your personal taste, the choices confronting you at any given time, your mood, your cooking skills and the time you have available. A gourmet cook can be happy with The UnDiet as well as those who don't know or care what saute means. You can eat out at restaurants and parties and still not fall off The UnDiet. You can eat olive oil, butter, cream, meat, mayonnaise and still not fall off The UnDiet. You can eat until you're full and still lose weight, once you've mastered the basic principles of The UnDiet.
