Easy Low Carb Egg Tostadas

easy-low-carb-egg-tostadas-02

We love breakfast for dinner in our house and this one was an instant hit. It was different from the usual eggs and bacon and I paired it with rutabaga home fries.

Rutabagas are lower in calories and carbs than potatoes and contain more calcium.

These tostadas are wrapped up in Azteca low carb fajitas. They only have 4g net carbs per tortilla where as regular tortillas have 24.5g net carbs. You could also for go the tortilla wrap ( and the extra carbs) and use a large kale leaf as a wrap.

There are 4.1g net carbs, 15.2g protein and 6 Weight Watchers points per wrap.

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
