- PROTEIN SPARING BREAD:
- 12 egg whites (separated from whole eggs)
- ¼ cup powdered Allulose
- ¼ cup gelatin
- ½ teaspoon Redmond Real Salt
- ½ teaspoon cream of tartar (to help stabilize the whites)
- 1 cup unflavored egg white protein
- Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil Spray
- 1/4 cup Primal Kitchen Olive Oil
- 4 tablespoons Primal Kitchen Mayo
- 3 slices bacon, cut into 1 inch pieces and cooked until crispy
- 1 large tomato, diced
- ½ cup shredded lettuce
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
- Separate the eggs (save the yolks for another recipe like my keto ice cream, hollandaise, mayo or lemon curd), and place the whites into a large bowl or stand mixer. Add the allulose, gelatin, salt and cream of tartar if using and whip the whites for a few minutes until VERY stiff.
- Turn the mixer to low and gently mix the egg white protein powder into the whites.
- Place a piece of parchment onto a rimmed baking sheet OR Click HERE to find the baguette pan I used. Spray the parchment with Primal Kitchen Avocado oil spray and use a spatula to form 2 long baguettes shapes (about 2½ inches in diameter and 12 inches long) with the protein sparing bread mixture.
- Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Turn oven off and leave bread in the oven for 15 minutes to avoid the bread from falling.
- Let completely cool before cutting or the bread will fall.
- Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 4 days or in the freezer for up to a month.
- To make the BLT Crostini, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Slice protein sparing bread into ½" thick slices.
- Place in a single layer on a baking sheet. Place the Primal Kitchen Olive Oil into a small dish.
- Brush the olive oil on both sides of each piece of protein bread.
- Bake for 5-6 minutes, or until golden and toasted, flip, and bake for another 4-5 minutes or until bread is crisp.
- Remove from oven and top with a smear of primal kitchen mayo, shredded lettuce, diced tomato and pieces of cooked bacon.
- Best served fresh.

TESTIMONY OF THE DAY
“Every morning when I get up I thank God for Maria and Craig Emmerich !
I will never be able to convey my thanks for showing me the way to lose weight. I tried every diet possible, I was in TOPS (Take Off Pounds Sensibly)at the age of 12, I tried WW, and a few other well known diet programs. None of them ever worked long term. I’d lose a few pounds and gain it right back.
Wish I could send you a huge bouquet of flowers Maria, but once again I will just send you my thanks and deepest gratitude!
I don’t have many pictures of myself at 420+ pounds. So I have to go way back to find pictures to share. Hit 200 pounds this morning. I have to say it feels unbelievable!” – Felicia
