High-Protein Smoked Salmon Scrambled Eggs
A great idea for a low carb breakfast is keto smoked salmon scrambled eggs with cream cheese and leafy greens.
Eggs for me are my go-to breakfast. They are quick, easy, and nutritious.
Eggs are the most perfect food. Packed with quality proteins, choline, selenium, folate, zinc, iron, thiamine, lecithin, Vit D, iodine …. and almost zero carbs which is why we eat so many of them.

Healthy breakfasts for children
My children (7, 10 and 13) all make their own scrambled eggs. They add cheese, salami, ham, last night’s veggies, butter and whatever they like. Scrambled eggs are a superb way to use up any leftovers.
This makes a huge meal, and is high in healthy fats so will keep you fuller for longer. Once you eat this, you may not even feel hungry for lunch. Remember to eat only when hungry, eat until almost full (it takes a while for your brain to catch up with what you have just eaten) and do not eat out of boredom or habit.
If you don’t feel hungry at lunch, don’t eat. Learn to trust your hunger signals. This simple keto smoked salmon scrambled eggs with leafy greens is so more nutritious than a bowl of cereal/granola, which then makes you hungry by 10 am.
There are two ways you can cook scrambled eggs in just 2 minutes.
2-minute microwave scrambled eggs: Simply whisk the eggs in a microwavable bowl, cook on HIGH for 1 minute, stir then cook again in HIGH for 45 seconds-1 minute depending on your microwave power. Stir. Done.
2-minute frying pan scrambled eggs: This recipe shows you just how easy it is to wilt some spinach in frying and then throw the scrambled eggs on top. Whisk while cooking in the frying pan or skillet, then serve.
