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.

Absolutely great recipe after a long day at work. I added a bit of bacon and spinach to mine and it was great! Thanks for taking the time to put this recipe together. I can relate to your story and seem to be on a similar track with my life. Luck, health, and happiness Martina!!!

I subbed goat cheese and used chives. Used 8 eggs and it made 4 nice servings. This was fantastic! I wish I could post a photo!

Thank you Pamela! I'll have a look and see how we can implement photo sharing 😊

I would try this recipe using eggs whites
and adding only 2 whole eggs. Maybe some
low-fat cheese yum! 😊

Hi Martina, do you think cream cheese will work too? Thanks!

Hi Mel, yes it will!

Will mozzarella work?

Reply

Absolutely! Both fresh mozzarella and even the "pizza-style" low-moisture mozzarella will be great in this recipe.
