Have you committed to or are considering a low-carb diet? Going low-carb means limiting carbohydrates (which are easily turned into sugar by the body) and emphasizing foods high in protein and fat. Limiting carb intake normalizes blood sugar levels and encourages the body to burn fat for fuel.
Many animal protein sources can be high in saturated fat— eggs are a delicious and nutritious alternative! They’re fast, simple to prepare and good for you. You can get the biggest nutritious bang for your buck with Eggland’s Best. Compared to ordinary eggs, Eggland’s Best eggs have 25% less saturated fat, and they’re only 60 calories per large egg. Eggland’s Best hens are fed a unique, all-vegetarian diet of healthy grains, canola oil, and an all-natural supplement of rice bran, alfalfa, sea kelp and Vitamin E. Better diets mean better eggs, with:
- 10 times more vitamin E
- 3 times more vitamin B12
- 4 times more vitamin D
- double the Omega 3s
- 38% more lutein
Plus, Eggland’s Best eggs are a good source of vitamins B2 and B5. Better nutrition and better taste make Eggland’s Best America’s #1 egg; available in classic, organic, cage free, hard cooked & peeled, and 100% liquid egg whites.
Other substitutions for a low carb diet:
- swap out coconut flour for white flour
- spiralize a zucchini or scrape a spaghetti squash for pasta
- use cauliflower to make pizza crust
- replace carb heavy snacks with protein rich ones like a hard boiled egg or handful of almonds— they’ll keep you satisfied longer!
