Bacon & Eggs

Bacon and eggs is a simple low carb staple recipe that no low carb or keto recipe book would be complete without it.  It’s simple, quick, and satisfying.  

Eggs are a powerhouse of highly bioavailable protein along with vitamins B2, B5 and B12, choline, folate, vitamin A, phosphorus and selenium while the bacon provides vitamin B3, phosphorus, selenium and zinc.  

Tomatoes or some leafy greens will add some more variety to the texture and minerals to this simple classic.
