  1. ASPARAGUS, EGG and BACON SALAD with DIJON VINAIGRETTE ... I LOVE this salad and it has only 11 carbs per serving. It's so good I have even served it to guests. They loved it too!


    INGREDIENTS:
    1 large hard boiled egg, peeled and sliced
    1 2/3 cups chopped asparagus
    2 slices cooked and crumbled center cut bacon, check labels for Whole30
    1/2 tsp Dijon mustard, check label for Whole30
    1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
    1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
    pinch salt and pepper, to taste



    INSTRUCTIONS:
    Bring a pot of water to a boil, add the asparagus and cook 2 to 3 minutes, until tender yet firm. Drain and run under cold water to stop it from cooking further. Set aside.
    In a small bowl mix the Dijon, oil, vinegar and a pinch of salt and pepper.
    Arrange the asparagus on a plate, top with egg and bacon and drizzle with the vinaigrette. Enjoy!

    1. oh wow! That looks and sounds so good. I love eating asparagus but never really know what to do with it. I will give this recipe a try. Thank you for sharing 🙌 Best, Minel (Team Member)

  2. I forgot to mention this is a SKINNYTASTE recipe. I have been making Skinnytaste recipes for years. They are healthier than many others I have found. I hope you like it when you try it!

    1. that's awesome! I have never heard of Skinnytaste before, I'll have to look into it! 😀 -Ashlen, Type2diabetes.com community moderator

  3. Thank you. Looks good!!

    1. I am not good with vegetables particularly green beans. I love spaghetti with marinara sauce. I have started putting my sauce over green beans and I love it. I get a vegetable and don't have the carbs from spaghetti noodles.

      1. That's a great tip! Thanks for sharing. Great idea to add in some more veggies. Best, Kelly, Type2diabetes.com Community Moderator
