Some days all you want is something simple and nutritious to start your day. 

This soft boiled egg was perfect.

Yummy, I had my egg scrambled today. Happy Sunday, enjoy your day!

I totally agree. I had scrambled eggs with just a slice of bread and butter for my lunch twice last week, it was delicious, but I don't think you can beat a yummy dippy egg (as we call them) as shown in your photo.

We have been eating eggs more than ever since going low carb. Just the other day I was thinking about Egg Foo Young ( I know that is not how you spell it, but you know what I mean, right) 30 years ago I used to buy a mix to make it and I remember it being mostly scrambled eggs and bean sprouts served with a clear gravy. I'm thinking it might be a great substitute for potatoes. What do you think and do you have a recipe?

Dippy eggs is a great name for them ... and of course you can eat them on their own ... or dip other foods of your choice in them e.g. asparagus. cheese, toasted soldiers - with or without marmite! Eggs are so nutritious and so many different ways to enjoy them.

Hope your Sunday has gone well, all good wishes for the coming week ahead.

All the best Jan

Thank you so much for your comment.

Firstly - I think for diabetics, or those who live the LCHF lifestyle beansprouts are great. They are so low in carbs and are quite filling to. Of course they are suitable for all to try out in their menu plans. We often have them with a stir fry ... I also sometimes buy a ready mixed stir fry like you see in this recipe here:

Secondly - Egg foo young is an omelette dish found in Chinese Indonesian, British and Chinese American cuisine. The name comes from the Cantonese language. Egg foo young is derived from fu yung egg slices, a mainland Chinese recipe from Shanghai ... read more about it here:

There is quite a variety of menu's available to try out. Here are two you may like to try


As you are probably aware from reading the various posts and articles on our blog. Since Eddie was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes seven years ago, we have dropped the 'big six' as they are often referred to. That is pasta, rice, bread, potatoes, cereals and pastry products ... eating these spike and raise blood sugar levels ... so instead, we substitute non starchy vegetable like aubergine/eggplant for pasta. Cauliflower rice instead of rice. Swede (Rutabaga) or celeriac in place of potatoes.
A lower carb flax-seed loaf like this one, link below, instead of the many higher carb shop bought breads

Home made 'Just Nuts Grain-Free Granola' instead of cereal, see recipe here

There is a low carb pastry you may wish to try - see recipe here

I hope the above information with links are helpful to you - thanks once again for your thoughts and comments here, they are always nice to receive, read and share.

I hope the new week ahead is a good one for you.

All the best Jan

After avoiding eggs for several years, I have added them to my diet once a week. I recently read an article in a nutrition newsletter that said eggs, red meat, processed meat were still very bad choices but that the USDA had caved in to the lobby for these foods and changed their recommendations to include them in the average diet. My last blood tests showed that I had dropped 90 points from my LDL. Lots of fresh vegetables was the answer for me. The hard part was changing my habits. I had to find new ways to cook and enjoy vegetables.

Eggs are also great for a supper. I noticed that eating a meat after 6 pm interferes with my sleep, but eggs are great. Omelet and a salad as a dinner is the perfect choice in my opinion.

Many thanks for your comments, and so pleased you are getting good test results.

We do include eggs regularly in our menu plans,and red meat at least once a week ... lots of fresh vegetables, just go great with whole fresh foods such as meat, chicken, fish and how about a salad with an omelette... yummy!

Hope your week is going well

All the best Jan

I think eggs can be enjoyed at almost any time of day. Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Supper - however you wish to serve them they just make a lovely meal.

Omelette and salad just sounds perfect ...

Many thanks for your comment
