Baked Eggs Skillet With Red Peppers And Onions

Baked eggs

If you’re anything like me, then a late weekend brunch is your absolute favorite meal of the week. Nothing beats a late, relaxed brunch with friends or family on a weekend morning. But what can you do if you’re following a low carb diet like the Candida diet?

Luckily there are lots of options. Look for meals that include lots of protein and fat in place of all those carbs, and you’ll have a healthy, Candida diet-friendly meal. Even better, these protein-rich meals will give your body what it needs for sustained energy throughout the morning and the rest of your day.

Our avocado pancakes and breakfast muffins are super-healthy options for your brunch. And the baked eggs recipe on this page is a sure-fire winner too! It’s an easy meal to scale up to larger groups, so you can make it for yourself and a partner, or invite the neighbors round on Saturday morning!

Eggs are a really great source of healthy protein and micronutrients. This dish combines them with onions, peppers and tomato, plus a good helping of paprika and parsley for extra flavor. A healthy breakfast recipe and a great way to start your day. Enjoy!

    I made this with what I had in the fridge. Purple Cabbage, onion,brocolli,tomatoes, scallions,cilantro. Yum . I felt satisfied without feeling stuffed , the way I feel after eating oatmeal,or a sandwich. Thank you. Meals like these will help me stick with the diet.

    Delicious and simple. I used a Fresno chili and made it as specified. The guys loved it.

  3. Inna says:

    Hi, I’m new to candida diet and want to start the cleanse with my daughter. I have read on other forums that pumpkin, bell peppers and apples cannot be eaten during candida cleanse. Your thoughts about it?

    1. Lisa Richards says:

      Those are all on our ‘Maybe’ list. OK for some people, but best avoided for others.

    Love this recipe. It’s so simple and can be adapted with other leftovers in the fridge. I added leeks and turkey once and had it for supper. Delicious.

    Thank you Lisa, I love your receipes, you are a very good chef.
    This receipe is no exception, and I appreciate you put detailed instructions in your Receipes including what temperature to cook at, as I’m not that good at cooking and and are inclined to use too high a heat and burn food.
