Healthy lunch recipes with an egg. Mostly low carb
Eggs are always delicious, for breakfast, dinner and lunch. With Easter coming up, I thought it would be fun to post some healthy lunch recipes with egg.
I have been eating low-carb for a few years now. And although in a stew I just eat potatoes, on other days I leave out the potatoes, pasta and rice and have extra vegetables. For lunch I look for healthy recipes and other than bread.
This way I also get lots of vegetables for lunch.
Easter is coming up
Egg for lunch is of course a great idea and with Easter coming up, I thought it would be fun to post some healthy lunch recipes with egg. With this of course still the note that too many eggs is not healthy, but is not that with everything where ’too’ stands for.
