Egg Fast Recipe - Munavoi (Egg Butter)

If you've ever been on an Egg Fast before, you've probably had some version of this Finnish dish.  It's called Munavoi, and it's translated to "Egg Butter."  Traditionally, this is spread on toast, but since we can't have toast on an Egg Fast, we just eat it as-is.  If you've never had it, it might sound a bit odd, but believe me, it really IS delicious!  And best of all, it really can't get any easier!  To mix-up the flavor a little bit, try it with a sprinkling of seasoned salt or garlic salt.

  • 2 eggs, hard-boiled
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • Salt, as desired (may omit if butter is salted)
  • Pepper, as desired


1. Mash hard-boiled egg and butter together with a fork.  If the mixture is staying too dry, microwave for 10-15 seconds to melt the butter, and mix that way.
2.  Add seasonings to taste.

Yields: 1 serving

Low-Carb, Low-Calorie French Fries with Fry Sauce

I have had so many Low-Carb friends tell me how very much they miss French Fries.  I totally get it!  French Fries are freaking awesome!  Well, it just so happens that turnips make pretty good fries.  And if you use a crinkle cutter to cut them (see below), they even LOOK like "real" fries!  I have heard of people making fries with green beans, and one of these days I'll try that, too.  But in the meantime, I'm enjoying the heck out of these turnip fries!  And let me just say, that the fry sauce  really makes these out-of-this-world!  Even my picky kid will devour these within minutes!  If you have a craving for "real" French Fries and these turnip fries don't completely squash it, I will eat my foot.  ;)

    • 1/4 cup mayonnaise (I used Hellmann's with Olive Oil)
    • 1/8 cup low-carb ketchup (I used Heinz Reduced-Sugar)
    • 1 teaspoon dill pickle juice (from a jar of dill pickles)
    • 1/8 teaspoon onion powder
    • 1 large turnip
    • Salt & Pepper (to taste)
    1. Combine mayonnaise, ketchup, pickle juice, and onion powder.  Whisk together until thoroughly combined.  Refrigerate, covered, until ready to use.  (Fry sauce yields about 6 tablespoons total, or 3 servings.)
    2. Thoroughly scrub and dry turnip.  Chop off ends.
    3. Using a crinkle cutter, cut turnip into fry shapes.
    4. Spray a cookie sheet with nonstick spray (or with an Olive Oil Mister).  I used butter-flavored nonstick spray.
    5. Place fries on cookie sheet.  Lightly coat tops of fries with nonstick spray.  Sprinkle (to taste) with salt and pepper.
    6. Bake for 15 minutes.
    7. Flip fries over and bake another 8-15 minutes (depending on fry size and thickness).
    8. Serve with 2 tablespoons of the fry sauce.

    Yields: 1 serving (plus extra fry sauce)

    Egg Fast Recipe - Bulletproof Coconut Cocoa

    This recipe came about simply because I was craving chocolate.  I don't drink coffee daily, so mixing up my beverages when on an Egg Fast is important to me.  I like to experience as many flavors as possible so I don't get tired of the Egg Fast before it's over.  If you're an adamant coffee drinker, you could just add 1 tsp of instant coffee to this to "pep" it up.  As with all Egg Fast recipes, this one can be used on any LCHF eating plan.  It's crazy-good and super chocolatey with just a hint of coconut!  ;)

    • 1 cup boiling water
    • 4 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
    • 3 packets Truvia
    • 2 tablespoons coconut oil


    1.  Combine the water, cocoa powder, Truvia, and coconut oil.  Blend in a "traditional" blender, with an immersion blender, or with a blender bottle until a frothy head is achieved.

     2.  Pour into an 8-ounce mug.  Enjoy! 

    Yields: 1 serving

    Egg Fast Recipe - Classic Egg Drop Soup

    Since I'm planning on doing another Egg Fast sometime in the next few weeks, I've been experimenting with some new recipes.  This is one that is hubby-approved, so you know it's good.  ;)  If you're not doing an Egg Fast, that's okay - it's still ultra low-carb!  It makes a fabulous lunch, and you can pair it with some cheese crisps to give it a little more "body."  It also pairs nicely with a salad for those of you who are not Egg Fasting.

    • 1 can (14 oz.) chicken broth
    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • 1/2 tablespoon Liquid Aminos (you can also use soy sauce)
    • 1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
    • 1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
    • Pinch Splenda
    • 2 eggs, beaten
    • Optional Garnish:  1 tablespoon sliced green onion

    1. Heat broth, butter, Liquid Aminos, sesame oil, ginger, garlic powder, and Splenda over medium-high heat until boiling.
    2. Let boil for 1 minute and then reduce heat to medium-low.
    3. While continuously stirring the broth mixture, thinly drizzle beaten egg into the pot and simmer about 1 minute to ensure that the eggs are fully set and opaque.

    Yields: 1 serving

    The Golden Egg - An Egg Scrambled Inside the Shell

    With all the Egg Fast recipes I've been posting lately, I thought it might be a good time to share this awesome little product that scrambles your egg right inside the shell!  It's called a "Golden Egg" and it is glorious!  This would make wonderful pickled eggs, with a uniform flavor!  Try it with our Honey Mustard Pickled Eggs or our Red Hot Pickled Eggs.  Our Fried Boiled Eggs would also be beautiful with these delicious-looking golden eggs!  These eggs are absolutely perfect for picky kids (or grown-ups!) who don't care for the dry yolk of a hard-boiled egg and only eat the white.  ;)

    Egg Fast Recipe - Fried Boiled Eggs with Yum Yum Sauce

    Here's my latest Egg Fast recipe.  This recipe puts a new spin on regular hard-boiled eggs by frying them in some butter and topping with a tangy Yum Yum Sauce.  If you're not a fan of tangy flavors, feel free to replace the Yum Yum Sauce with regular mayo or just plain, melted butter.  This recipe is 100% Egg Fast-friendly.  But don't limit yourself to eating it only on an Egg Fast!  This can be enjoyed with any LCHF diet.


    1. Melt butter in nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
    2. Cut hard-boiled eggs into thick slices.
    3. Fry in butter until lightly browned on both sides, flipping once.
    4. Serve with Yum Yum Sauce in a small bowl for dipping.

    Yields: 1 serving

    LCHF Yum Yum Sauce

    I actually made this sauce for an Egg Fast recipe originally (I will be sharing that recipe soon!).  But I've been using it for all sorts of others things since then!  This sauce has a mild tanginess to it that I just cannot get enough of!  It makes an excellent shrimp sauce and an even better sandwich/wrap spread!  Try it on a turkey wrap!  ;)  It's completely Egg Fast-friendly because it's high in fat.  If you use it for the Egg Fast, it makes quite a nice swap for mayonnaise.  Anywhere you would use mayo, just sub this in.

    • 1/2 cup mayonnaise (I used Hellmann's Olive Oil Mayo)
    • 1 tablespoon Splenda
    • 1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
    • 1 tablespoon butter, melted
    • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
    • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

    1. Whisk all ingredients together until thoroughly mixed.  Store in refrigerator in an airtight container.

    Yields: 8 servings (about 1 tablespoon per serving)
