Mexican Style Scrambled Eggs

Mexican Style Scrambled Eggs

I guess for some it is not a surprise that I would lead off with  Mexican Style Scrambled eggs. Those that know me know that my wife and I retired to live in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico when it came time to pack up my kitchen knives and limit my cooking to family and friends that visit us on our farm here. It is about 5 minutes from the beach and we raise our own free range chickens (about 150 at any given time) This means that we have a lot of farm fresh eggs, many of which we sell to local markets but also there are a lot we use in recipes in our kitchen. This is a simple, easy and fast breakfast for when your on the go, the seasoning are what makes it taste so great. If you do not feel that this is enough breakfast for you, add half a ripe avocado which will balance it out nicely.

Ingredients
  • Pinch of ground Cumin
  • Pinch of ground coriander
  • Pinch of chili powder
  • Pinch of onion powder
  • Pinch of garlic powder
  • Pinch of Himalayan salt
  • ½ tbsp. Farm fresh butter
  • 2 Large free-range eggs.
Instructions
  1. In a small bowl, mix all the spices together and set aside
  2. Over medium heat, heat the farm fresh butter in a small nonstick skillet. (I use a castiron skillet)
  3. Crack the eggs in a bowl and pour them into the hot skillet.
  4. Fry them until the whites are solid, about 3 to 5 minutes.
  5. Gently flip them over, trying not to break the yolks and cook for about 15 seconds.
  6. Sprinkle the eggs with the spice mix in the amount that feels right to you, saving any extra to use another time.
  7. Transfer to a serving dish and serve immediately.

 

If you add 1/2 of a medium avocado you will need to add 130 calories, 12g of fat, 6g of carbs, 5g of fiber and 1g of protein. That is only a net increase of 1 carb but does add some all important fiber and helps kick the fat grams up towards our daily goals. Remember, avocado fat is what is considered good fat so we like to enjoy avocados every day if possible.

Usually I will add a Chefs Note or two with a recipe to make it easier to understand and enjoy. Today I have a few.

The first Chefs Note is that I never use Garlic Salt or Onion Salt, I use Garlic or Onion Powder when not using fresh. The reason is that Garlic and Onion Salt is Garlic and Onion powder that has salt added. I prefer to control my salt by adding it by itself. I also recommend cooking with salt free farm raised butter when using butter for the same reason.

2nd Chefs Note: I use Himalayan salt in my seasoning because it has 84 trace minerals which ordinary table salt does not have. Granted you will hear that they are in such a small amount that it does not matter. To me it does matter because as humans we use a lot of salt so those extra minerals might help and surely won’t hurt.

Be sure to use Ghee or avocado oil to cook the eggs if you are following the Paleo Lifestyle.

As a chef, I cook eggs with farm fresh butter or ghee, both of which I keep on hand. They add flavor to the dish and are a source of good fat for the keto diet. I also keep avocado oil on hand for cooking. I do not use olive oil for cooking but do use it in some salad dressing.Olive oil is a good source of Omega-3’s but they are destroyed when it is heated.

One thing you want to keep in mind is that everyone, including those that are following a keto diet or the ketogenic lifestyle are different from each other. While a couple of eggs may not sound like much, your body is about to adjust to eating much less but healthier foods without those dreaded hunger pangs. How fast this happens only you will know. I have shifted to a two meal a day plan and do intermittent fasting. However, I did not start that until sometime in the second month. It has made my 97 pound weight loss painless. I still have more to go but I’m well on my way.

  • I wrote a review but somehow it disappeared. As a policy I try not to say anything about another persons cookbooks so I will limit it to the following.

    As a chef and a follower of the ketogenic lifestyle, I will invest in cookbooks on subjects of interest to me such as ketosis cookbooks. I have a few.
    Personally I would never invest $47.00 or even $37.00 (with his coupon) on a keto recipe cookbook when I could get three of four different books on the same subject on
    kindle.
    For me, the review I did read sounded like a sales page and that also was a turn off. Losing 12 pounds in 3 month is a slower weight loss than
    I have heard of on keto unless the person has been following it for a very long time and is near their goal weight.

    Lastly, 370 recipes sounds great but I usually find less that two dozen recipes that I like in such a big book so I invest in books with under 150
    recipes and cost under $10 and I have always found about the same amount of recipes that sparked my interest.

    So, should you get this book, I can’t say but if you are already skeptical think it over carefully – that is a lot of money for a book that is not
    even hard cover. Would I buy this book? Sorry but I would pass on this one.

  • Recipe looks amazing!

    On the keto diet I eat a bunch of eggs since they are such a great source of quality protein. However, I often get tired of eating the same style of eggs every time. Recipes like this one are a great help.

    I was curious to know if you have ever heard of the ketosis cookbook? I was thinking about getting it since it claims to contain three hundred somthing recipes. I surely wont get bored of any of the foods with this many choices to chose from. However from what I have seen, the reviews are mixed. Some people say that its the biggest scam ever while others claim that its the best thing ever. This review http://simplefitnessproject.com/reviews/ketosis-cookbook/ seems to put the book in good light since the user actually lost weight using the program. However I am still skeptical- I would love to hear your two cents. Thanks!
