Today, I’m doing an egg fast. The rules of the egg fast are as follows:
- Eat at least 6 eggs/ day.
- With each egg, have 1 TB of a good, healthy fat.
- You may also have up to 3 oz of cheese/day but no more
Most people probably do an egg fast for more than one day, but I decided to see what happens if I just try it for one day. I honestly don’t know if I’ll be able to eat just eggs and cheese for more than one day, though I am prepared to because I literally bought five dozen eggs (thank you, Costco)!
So, I kind of did my own thing for breakfast. I work reeeeally early, so I did NOT feel like frying up two eggs for breakfast. Instead, I opted for a bulletproof coffee, made with 2 TB of healthy fats. This may be considered cheating by some but I figured I would just eat a couple boiled eggs to fit the 1TB fat/egg rule. Anyways…that was my breakfast.
For lunch, I made some super easy deviled eggs (mmm!) using the following recipe:
3 eggs, boiled.
3 TB mayonnaise
1 tsp dijon
1 tsp mustard
Salt and Pepper to taste.
Sprinkle of fresh parsley
(Note: I was SO excited to use the fresh parsley that I’m growing in my windowsill, you have NO idea!)
Scrambled eggs à la Gordon Ramsay were on the menu for tonight.So creamy and buttery–nothing like traditional scrambled eggs. I added some pink himalayan salt, pepper, and an ounce of brie cheese. Perfection!
My plan is to not eat anything else tonight, but if I do get hungry I still have a couple ounces of cheese I could eat. We will see how I feel tomorrow–if I want to continue this egg fast I will have to become more creative with my recipes!
