  3. Pour in the eggs and swirl the pan to coat the bottom. Using a wooden spoon or a rubber spatula, gently push the edges into the middle of the pan. The uncooked runny eggs should spill out and coat the base of the pan.
  4. After just about a minute, add the chopped spinach. Cook until the eggs are just set, and then remove from heat. Low-Carb Green Eggs with Smoked Salmon

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.
