Paint your kitchen white and green this St. Patrick’s Day with this delicious recipe for Low Carb, Low Cal Lean Green Irish Eggs. Lean Green Irish Eggs combine two of my absolute favorite uberfoods – egg whites and avocado – into one carb-free (2.5 g net), protein-heavy powerhouse. They literally radiate healthy fats and fiber, in the form of bright green avocado, without crossing the 250 calorie barrier.1

Cook it up, splash some salsa verde on top, and you’ve got a flavor-packed, festive, chartreuse masterpiece in sub-5 minutes flat.
