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!!!

Thank you for your lovely feedback, Cale! Those are great additions! 😊

What is the total calorie count?

All nutrition facts per serving are listed in the table above.

Just had this for late breakfast, absolutely delicious!

Thank you Natasha! 😊

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! 😊

I'm not sure why go for low-fat cheese, you may want to check this out 😊 Keto Diet Guide for Beginners

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

Hi Mel, yes it will!

Will mozzarella work?

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