Easy and Quick for Low Carbers on the Go

Crustless Ham & Egg Pie

This meal has evolved from a basic pancake recipe that I discovered in “Natural Health & Weight Loss” by Barry Groves. I make the pancakes almost daily for sandwiches, pizza bases and many other quick and easy meals. This one has slightly more ingredients and is delicious for breakfast or lunch served with salad. It is equally tasty eaten cold and is ideal for packed lunches and picnics.

Why Do We Eat Low Carb?

My partner and I endeavor to stick to a low carbohydrate way of eating because last year he was diagnosed as being pre-diabetic and after a few weeks of going LC, he was declared clear. I find I have far more energy and also that eating low carb has cured my minor but chronic back pain.


“Natural Health & Weight Loss” has many other useful low carbohydrate recipes as well as a huge amount of information backed by scientific evidence about the benefits of low-carb eating. Barry recommends a daily intake of around 60 grams of carbs per day, which leaves a lot of scope for such deliciousness as chocolate mousse!

Looks delicious. I make something similar with just veggies. But I love ham too.

Who would have thought to put it together in a pancake type batter. It looks interesting...and it leaves room for many variables.

"Carbs: negligible. Calories: who cares." YES! :-D

Sounds good but I don't like ham, so I would put avacado or tomato in mine or maybe just cheese... I don't eat red meant or pork often.. It looks yummy.

Fabulous pictures and the ham and egg pie looks so good I can almost taste it! Great testimonial as to your family's health improvements with the low carb diet. We're reducing carbs slowly but should do better.

Thanks for great comments, friends! My daughter posed for the mixing picture. She was making rather rude remarks about the look and consistency of the mixture. We ate it for brunch this very day!

Looks absolutely delicious doesn't it and love the pictures showing the creative process
