Breakfast Skillet – Low Carb/Wheat Free
Sometimes I enjoy jumping on the low carb bandwagon. It’s an easy way to lose a few pounds and I actually feel better when I eat low carb. You see, I have issues with lower abdominal pain. It always seems to happen after I eat food. When I did low carb and cut out a lot of wheat products last Summer, those abdominal issues seemed to disappear. Of course, I started eating breads, cookies and other carb filled foods again when the holidays began to approach. And at about that same time, I started having issues with my lower abdominal region again (and I gained a few pounds.) It’s a pretty painful thing to go through. I’ve never gone to a Gastro doctor before because every other doctor says the issues are due to IBS. Well, I finally decided to make an appointment with a Gastro doctor due to a couple of intense flare ups. I went to the appointment and now I will be checked out to see if I have Chrons Disease or Ulcerative Colitis, which means that I will be having a colonoscopy done in a few weeks. This is something that usually isn’t performed for the first time until one reaches the age of 50 but alas, at the wee age of 31, I will have my first colonoscopy. No worries here, though. I’m looking forward to perhaps getting some answers regarding my abdominal issues.
Anyways, the reasoning for that story (which goes really well in a recipe post, eh?) is to bring up the importance of food and its affect on our bodies. Who knows, maybe eating tons of wheat products is having some sort of affect on me. So I like to incorporate tasty, low carb, wheat free meals into my diet. A couple of weeks ago I put together a delicious breakfast skillet that used up some leftover steak and grilled onions and peppers. It was a great way to use up leftovers and enjoy a low carb meal. I hope you enjoy this recipe!
