Breakfast recipes gone mad – Low Carb Smothered Hashbrowns (IF)

My good friend and low carb cook, Jimmy Akin, made some awesome low carb hashbrowns awhile back featuring not cauliflower, turnips, or radishes, but he made them with spaghetti squash.  On my 16 mile training run, I had to run by a number of diners, and the smell of breakfast, specifically hashbrowns, was overpowering even on the sidewalk.  I took that as my sign that I needed to get off my duff and make this recipe.  I had had a spaghetti squash sitting on my counter for a week waiting to be used.  The first time I made this recipe, I was surprised by how close to the original these were.

I think you will like them as well.

    Well hello,
    My name is Anthony im a college football player and i have a question, off season. I had two surgerys and i gained 40 pounds, i want to cut from 240 to about 200. Im trying to start the atkins diet but im a little sketchy on how im coming into it, i drink water all day, i run 1 to 2 miles a day and i lift, and for lunch ill eat chicken at home, and sometimes mcdonalds double cheese burgers plain with no but, sometimes the cheese has just a tiny tiny tiny tiny amount of bread stuck in the cheese not much at all! But is this meat and cheese okay to eat while on induction? Also, for the remainder of the diet ( if i am doing this right) i will stick to chicken, steak, eggs, water and the burgers. is this okay? Please get back at me! Im really worried im blowing it.

      I would not worry about the smidge of bread, but you are the customer and could simply request it without one.

      On your list of things you are going to eat. I would urge you to add some green leafy vegetables to the list. The 10 or so grams of carbs in vegetables isn’t going to put you out of ketosis, but it will make the diet more complete. Zero carb does work, but for most it eliminates a lot of the satisfaction from the diet. Think of it this way — if you had to eat steak even ribeyes grilled perfectly every day, you might be happy initially, but eventually you’ll get bored and be tempted to hop off. Now think if you could vary it with stir fry, fajitas, broccoli sausage quiche, low carb pizza, etc. Chances are you’ll stay on it much longer and see more permanent success. There is a limit on cheese per day (3-4 oz per day), so just be aware of that.
      Here are the rules for Induction:

      Here’s the video where I describe this question:

      Your running initially might be a bit tougher, but within a couple weeks, your body will acclimate to the diet and your performance will actually excel. I am running marathons now and still lifting each week. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
