Creamy Keto Custard for the win: Egg Fast Days 2-3

We went out to dinner last night and I had chicken wings. Came from a chicken, but not exactly an egg. I was a little anxious to break my otherwise very strict eggs, butter, cheese regimen but Buffalo Wild Wings still doesn’t serve breakfast. So I was even more thrilled to get on the scale this morning and find it 2 pounds less, again. My grand total for the 3 day egg fast is 7.2 pounds, which has only motivated me to make it a 5-day egg fast instead, to see how long I can ride this weight loss wave. After stalling out for months, losing this much weight in so short a time has been just what I needed to strengthen my resolve and renew my motivation. And I’m still not out of egg recipes, or even sick of cheesy scrambled eggs quite yet.

Day 2:

Breakfast: Scrambled eggs with cheese

Snack: Two slices of creamy havarti

Lunch: Mozzarella cheese wrap with fried eggs, lettuce and mayo

Dinner: Mozzarella wrap with a small amount of low carb marinara, spinach, eggs and mushroom.

Day 3:

Breakfast: Scrambled eggs with cheese

Snack: Two slices of gruyere blanc

Lunch: Mozzarella wrap with scrambled eggs and shredded cheddar

Dinner: Chicken wings, 6 with blue cheese

Dessert – Egg fast custard:

1/2 cup mascarpone cheese
¼ cup salted butter
5 large eggs separated
3 squirts of liquid stevia
¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
dusting of xanthan gum

Melt together mascarpone cheese and butter.
Whisk in egg yolks over low heat until custard thickens.
Remove from heat and stir in stevia.
Beat egg whites with cream of tartar until stiff peaks form.
Fold egg whites into custard, then dust with xantham gum, mix thoroughly (I used my stand mixer on slow)

Chill and enjoy!

I’ll keep you posted on how Days 4 and 5 go once I emerge from my cooking cocoon (restaurant busiest days are Thursday-Saturday) and will be posting the Cloud Bread and Egg Fast Shake I use between now and then. Afterward, hopefully I’ll be able to transition back to strict keto over the weekend without putting too much of the weight back on, though a couple of pounds is to be expected.

For me, this fast has been easier than the keto soup cleanse, but I really like eggs and cheese. How about you? Am I missing any fabulous egg recipes out there?
