I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

OK.  This is really good!  I have made this a couple days running and I love it!  It is simple, fast and the mustard cream sauce makes it feel indulgent.    I use my Guinea hen eggs, which are smaller than chicken's but also have a higher yolk/white ratio like a duck egg.  Thanks Martina!  Great recipe!

Thank you! I think that the Swiss cheese makes all the difference. I've tried it with cheddar and it was ok but Gruyere was much better 😊

Actually, I used a Merlot Asiago and it was also great!

Now that's a nice cheese!
