I’ve been fairly clear about the fact that I’m following a low carb food plan (of my own creation). One of my tasks has been to find new recipes for dinner or figure out how to switch up old recipes to fit our new lifestyle. I managed to do both things in one with this recipe that I found on asweetlife.org.
I’ve been experimenting with baking with almond flour. My quest is to find adequate substitutes for wheat flour breads. I posted about my first almond bread here. To update you on that saga, I made another loaf yesterday, substituting ½ of the eggs with generic egg beaters. The loaf came out just fine! In fact, I think I like this loaf better. I’m not sure if that’s because I’m getting used to it, or what, but it’s good! Ray even likes it. I sliced it up and got 14 slices instead of the 10 that I had swagged. This means that this bread is 9 g carbs per slice with 7 g of fiber. Nice. This will become my go-to bread. I sliced the whole loaf and froze most of it, putting waxed paper between each slice.
Today, I’m mad. Angry. Pissed. Ticked. I want to punch something. The other day was a bad day where I didn’t feel well and was grumpy. I re-read this post and felt better. My last post was about feeling lucky and I still feel that way, but today I’m mad.
Dr. Dwight Lundell is a cardiologist who has spoken up to say that he was wrong about a low fat diet and heart disease. You can read his words here,
which I highly recommend you do.
