Keto does not need to be fancy. There are many more times when just a simple dish is what we want. As a working chef it was my job to sell the meal with how well I made the entree look. As a retired chef, sometimes simple is better. An example is this Keto Spinach and Eggs Breakfast. I really enjoy it and the flavors are wonderful together.
This week at the farmers market I was able to get clean, tender baby spinach. I recommend you use organic baby spinach if you can get it because it is much easier to chew and enjoy. The full grown spinach tends to be a little tough. I usually slice the larger leaves of full grown spinach before I cook it to make it a little more desirable when I must use it.

Spinach is one of the best sources of potassium and magnesium which are two of the major electrolytes for our health. It is also a great source of vitamins A, B-1, B-2, B-6, C, E and the very important vitamin K. Spinach is also a good source of Zinc, phosphorus, choline and protein. A couple of servings a week wouldn’t be a bad idea.Start with Spinach And Eggs For A Quick Keto Breakfast and enjoy the energy boost.

When I add bacon to an entree, it is raw, unprocessed bacon without all the added “curing agents”. It is sold in most supermarkets but you will need to look for it the first time you go to use it.
Chefs Tip: I did not spend time removing all the little stems of the baby spinach. Because it is young, they are very tender and contain all the nutrients of the leaves so why not enjoy with your keto Spinach and Eggs Breakfast.
Because I purchased a large bunch of spinach, I will use the remaining spinach with a dinner this week that includes Wild Caught Alaskan Salmon. It also is a keto friendly recipe so if you are following the ketogenic lifestyle, now would be a great time to sign up for our news letter.
