A Low Carb Adventure, While I'm Waiting for Spring!

While I'm waiting on spring to actually arrive here in Colorado, I thought that I would share some good eats from my own low carb eating plan. I have managed to create some wonderful meals and lose weight at the same time. Plus my LDL is down and my blood pressure is at where it should be, so hey....why not share? It might be what you need as well to get to the weight that you're happy with.

So here is my first recipe for low carb delish!

Strawberry crepes just for YOU. If you're sharing then double the amount of eggs.


3 eggs beaten well
2 tablespoons of Heavy Whipping Cream (non-sweetened almond milk or flax milk works good too)
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1 teaspoon of vanilla (get the real stuff, it makes a difference and is worth it!)
3 large fresh strawberries, sliced thin

8oz cream cheese softened (microwave  covered with a paper towel for 30 seconds)
Mix in cream cheese 2 large tablespoons of sugar free strawberry jam or preserves. This amount make extra for others or will keep in your refrigerator for about a week, but these are so yummy that it probably won't last that long.

Beat eggs, whipping cream, cinnamon and vanilla together until mixed well. Pour about half into a non-stick skillet at about medium temp. I do put about a teaspoon of olive oil in my pan before cooking.  Make sure egg covers all of the bottom of the skillet. Let cook about 30 to 40 seconds, then lift an edge with a non-stick spatula to see if bottom is browning. When egg has almost cooked on the top, take spatula and flip egg crepe over.

Spoon in cream cheese on top of cooked egg crepe and spread thin. You can add the fresh sliced strawberries and then fold crepe over 1/3 of the way. Remove pan from heat and turn crepe over on plate folding over the remaining 1/3 to make the full crepe. Make another the same as before. Garnish with more sliced berries and add real whipped topping and enjoy?
