I am participating in the Blogging from A to Z April (2016) Challange.
My theme is Low Carb High Fat.
(#LCHF on Twitter)
But, that’s not all - it’s about a journey to better health.
It is about two women.
One at death’s door, the other not far behind.
As you follow this journey you will be surprised by what you read here. I hope it impacts you and causes you to question what mainstream medicine is doing to you, and those you love.
Here we go…
E is for Eating for Energy.
E is also for taking it easy, and that’s exactly what I’m going to do with this post.
Let’s face it - it’s been pretty heavy going these last four posts.
Today we are on even terrain; relax, look out the window, stand, stretch your legs… this part of the journey is easy.
What does a NO CARB (or very low carb) diet look like?
Let me first start by explaining something - gotta get this out of the way.
The word “diet” stands for Did I Eat Today - and if you’re not eating because you’ve been told cutting calories is the answer, you’ve been sorely mislead. Big time!
EAT… AND EAT LOTS… JUST DON’T EAT CARBS.
Sooo… here are some shots of what LOW CARB / NO CARB eating looks like in my house.
|Coconut Flour Cookies - chocolate and plain|
|Pizza using cauliflower, egg and cheese for base.|
So much like a real pizza my son-in-law was shocked how good it tasted.
|Cheese loaf, with green onion - using my Grain Free Coconut Flour Bread recipe.|
|Self explanatory - damn yummy is all I can say.|
Those pancakes are my recipe too.
|Meals I prepare for Mom.|
Hemp Heart sautéed in butter serves as "rice" side.
|Peanut Butter cookies using Xylitol.|
Find out about Xylitol HERE.
|A favourite dish - crustless quiche - soooo yummy.|
I have featured my grain free coconut flour bread HERE and my coconut flour pancakes HERE on this blog. (Note: I will be featuring an updated version of both, made a few minor adjustments/additions. But both are great the way they are.)
And for added inspiration I would like to introduce you to the one and only...
Dr. Ted Naiman.
He’s a board-certified Family Medicine physician (based in Seattle) and has devoted much of his career to the study of diet and exercise and their relationship to health. More on him HERE.
|One look at Dr. Naiman and you can see he practices what he preaches.|
His website, Burn Fat Not Sugar, is concise and very informative, you can also find him on Twitter @tednaiman.
He has a section called MEAL EXAMPLES (which THIS LINK will take you to) where you can salivate as you watch a slide presentation showing 385 fantastic meal ideas.
Don’t tell me there’s nothing to eat when you remove CARBS from your diet.
Here’s were today’s journey ends, see, no bumpy bits - just easy going.
And, Eating for Energy is exactly that too - EASY!
For those of you still along for the ride, tomorrow we’re going to Egypt for a quick visit of the pyramids. Buckle up and get ready for some fun.
Question for this post - Did you find yourself totally blown away by the Low Carb High Fat food we’re enjoying?
