Vegetarian Heidi Swanson Has An Excellent Low-Carb Cooking Idea

Posted Oct 01 2008 8:32pm

A new and innovative way to use eggs in your low-carb lifestyle

With props to my regular reader Gary (see, you REALLY do need to get your own blog, man! *wink*), here is one of the most creative low-carb ideas I've seen in a long time from a woman named Heidi Swanson at her web site called 101 Cookbooks.

It's a recipe for what she describes as "Skinny Omelettes" and this is so cool! You're gonna love this unique idea.

Heidi Swanson uses her artistic abilities in a variety of ways

First, let me tell you a bit about Swanson. She lives in San Francisco, California and is a very talented photographer , designer, and cookbook author, including her outstanding 2007 release entitled Super Natural Cooking: Five Ways To Incorporate Whole and Natural Ingredients into Your Cooking. She has been privileged enough to be featured in a diverse number of media outlets, including The Wall Street Journal, LIFE, USA Today, Shape Magazine, Glamour, Entertainment Weekly, The Washington Post, The San Francisco Chronicle, Whole Foods Markets, National Public Radio, and even the Vegetarian Times.

If you enjoy recipes using only whole foods, then this book is for you

Even as a well-known and respected vegetarian supporter, I was quite impressed by this "Skinny Omelettes" idea. Swanson describes traditional omelettes as not "very exciting." But as a low-carber, I can think of no better way to enjoy a quick, high-protein meal that's delicious and will satisfy my hunger for hours!

Of course, I love cooking my eggs in the microwave, too when I don't feel like pulling out a skillet. Eggs are about as cheap a low-carb food as you'll ever find and studies have found they help you eat less calories throughout the day when you start your day off with them. Why isn't EVERYBODY eating eggs?

Perhaps you're bored with the way you've been making eggs. Why not try Heidi Swanson's "Skinny Omelettes" and see if that sparks some fresh ideas for you in the kitchen. I'm all for finding new ways to make livin' la vida low-carb even better. Well here ya go!
