If we’re being totally honest with you, we’re huge foodies. It’s not often that we deprive ourselves of a meal if we’re really craving something, but sometimes in the summer we like to keep things as calorie conscious as possible if we’ve purchased a bathing suit we really like and want to look our best in. Lately, we’ve been finding that we’ve been the most successful in that endeavour if we eat as few carbohydrates as possible! We have the most difficulty staying low carb in the morning because we’re big fans of baked goods, so we’ve been keeping our eyes peeled for delicious breakfast recipes that will follow suit!

2. Low carb breakfast wraps

4. Avocado and chicken sausage egg wraps
