This breakfast was deliciously low carb. Sometimes, on Saturday, we have a slow, lazy, nothing to do sort of morning. This morning was just one of those. So we did brunch! The boys wanted waffles and scrambled eggs. No problem. 

I made them regular waffles but I made some almond flour waffles for me.

Almond waffle recipe:
2 eggs
1/4 C. Heavy Cream
1/4 almond flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
A pinch of salt
1 T. Olive oil

I don't put sugar substitute in because I really don't like things sweet anymore. (Yippee)
Spray the waffle iron and waffle away!

So, what's on the plate? Eggs and problem, no carbs there. Waffles....about three carbs for the whole thing. Half a grapefruit....maybe six carbs. What, you might ask am I drinking? Hot cocoa, low carb style.

Low carb cocoa
2 cups very warm water
1/2 tsp. cocoa powder
1/4 cup heavy cream
That's it. I used to add stevia, but again, I don't need the sweetness anymore.

There you go. A lovely Saturday morning brunch.
