Some people struggle to keep caloric intake low, while trying to not sacrifice taste and nutrition… This is Dan from Primal4Life bringing you a ”Low Cal Egg & Veggy Paleo Sandwich.” Since we had a few egg whites leftover from a Paleo dessert that called for just yolks, I decided to use them for this morning’s breakfast. Normally I’m a three whole organic egg a day guy, but I figured I’d use these whites to explain how to make a tasty Paleo sandwich with some of that incredible and ohhh so edible coconut Paleo Bread… Meanwhile, we’ll be keeping calories down at the same time. Along with the egg whites, I decided to throw in some escarole, orange tomatoes, red onion, and Daiya cheese. Although it’s not really cheese, it’s a vegan alternative that I’ve been experimenting with. I do suffer from minor setbacks with some forms of dairy, like a scratchy throat, or wheezing; even with organic, raw cheeses… Different cheeses have different levels of lactose, so if you have issues, you can look up which cheeses have lesser lactose and test it out. But, Daiya makes a cheese replacement which isn’t too bad, and I’m going to be including it in today’s meal.
Along with the main ingredients, we will be cooking our omelet up in some of that delicious Lemon Herb Nuco Liquid Premium Coconut Oil; a pourable coconut oil that comes in liquid form, as well as being fully organic and non-GMO! And it comes in three flavors, check them out in the same place that you can get your Paleo Bread at! Julian Bakery. Remember, healthy fats do not make you fat, they are essential for us! For seasoning, I’m opting for that wonderful Quantum Pink Salt, which is flavorful, yet nutritious for you at the same time. Combining two premium, undyed, unheated, solar-dried sea salts: pure Mediterranean sea salt and pink Alaea Hawaiian sea salt which supply critical trace elements. Ditch that table salt, and opt for some nutritious sea salt!

But with numbers that low, I was hoping the taste was decent… And it was more than decent! The “cheese” actually tasted like cheese, the tomatoes were juicy and fresh, the escarole and red onion were flavorful, and the Lemon Herb Nuco Coconut Oil combined with that tasty Quantum Pink Salt added tons of flavor along with health benefits.
