You may have heard that I am giving carb cycling a try these days... and yes, fitting it within my Weight Watchers program quite nicely, for those who are wondering. These High Fibre Egg White Muffins are great for my low carb/higher fat days. I love them as an after workout snack or to satisfy that mid afternoon urge to nibble, too.
They are very portable, but require a cooler if you plan to store them for more than an hour or so.
They are really simple, only require a few ingredients... if you don't use the North Coast Naturals Ultimate Daily Cleanse (and why don't you?) then you could try ground flax seeds, or a mixture of ground flax and crushed psyllium husk.
I like them slightly sweetened, but leave out the Stevia if you like... and feel free to slather them with nut butter after they have cooled a bit... or have them with a bit of cheese. Mmmmmm.
