Recipes for Low Carb Living

American Weight Loss BrusselsThis week, we’re sharing an excellent recipe for that’s perfect for low carb diets and weight loss programs: Mini Frittatas. These egg based babies are packed with  choline and lutein -- two egg-yolk nutrients that play a vital role in the health and proper function of our brain, nervous system, and eyes.  Egg yolk is a natural source of Vitamin D and contains high amounts of Omega 3 fatty acidstryptophan, selenium, iodine, and B vitamins compared to the egg white.  For these reasons, you may not want to do like most health conscious folks, and separate the yolk from the white.

You may also elect to throw in your own mixture of vegetables, depending on what you like. Much like an omelette.

Enjoy this delicious recipe that will keep you on track with a low carb diet while reaping the many benefits this vegetable can have on your health!

Fill prepared muffin cups almost to the top with the egg mixture. Bake until the egg mixture puffs and is just set in the center, about 8 to 10 minutes.
