One of the things I’ve found that make me feel awful is SUGAR. It’s crazy how tired and sluggish I feel when I eat a lot of sugary foods, pasta, bread, etc. I have spent the last ten days or so eating low carb foods, and added water to my diet, and I’m glad to say that I’ve lost about 8 pounds. Yay me! I’m sure most of that is water weight, but 8 pounds is 8 pounds, so I’m not looking that gift horse in the mouth. This week, I’ve tried a few low carb recipes that I’ve pinned, and I’m going to give you the low down on them…
First up: Low carb cheesy bread. This recipe was all over Pinterest, so I figured it had to be good. I used this recipe from Crafty Morning blog. https://www.craftymorning.com/keto-no-carb-cheesy-bread-recipe Dude. It was not bread. It was melted cheese that had a bit of a shape to it. Which was tasty, but IT WAS NOT BREAD. I’m sure it would have been great with a marinara dip, or something, but definitely NOT BREAD. What a bummer.
Second on the list: FatHead Bagels. These are the ones I made using the recipe from Keto Cooking Christian.
They were MUCH closer to bread, and I liked the texture. They are a bit “heavy” compared to the bread we are used to, but it was the closest I’ve found to the real thing. I froze a few of them, and I am looking forward to using them for sandwiches or just toasted with butter. I was so freaking happy to have found these, I might have danced a little in my kitchen while eating one slathered in butter.
And last on my list: Cheddar Cheese Ranch Crisps. I found this recipe at the blog called Linneyville: http://www.linneyville.com/cheddar-ranch-cheese-crisps-keto-low-carb/ I decided to try to make my own of these because I was not happy paying $4.99 for a tiny bag at Publix.
They were incredibly easy to make, and were very tasty. I’ll probably make these again, but mix different spices in with the cheese – and use different cheeses too. Much cheaper than buying these pre-made.
So, that’s all for this week’s low carb recipes. I’ve been eating a lot of things I’m not used to eating, but they don’t really fall under the “recipe” category. Things like ham and cheese rollups, peanuts, almonds, cucumber slices with tzatziki sauce… you get the idea. Low carb eating isn’t hard, as long as you have snacks on hand for when you get hungry. LOL. To be honest, I don’t feel hungry a lot, unlike when I’m eating all kinds of carbolicious things.
Thanks for stopping by!
P.S. I’ve also been working on a new, low carb, recipe for chili… check out the recipe I usually use here: https://www.apinterestaddict.com/2013/10/20/my-favorite-comfort-food-last-minute-chili-blog-hop-and-link-party/
