Breakfast Sandwich on 90 Second Bread
Good Morning! I am going to start the day with my iced coffee and share an awesome recipe I found and adapted from Kasey Trenum at http://kaseytrenum.com . I found this recipe while browsing Pinterest and the title alone made me giggle and save it to my *must try* board. You can find the original recipe here, the title is “90 second bread that actually tastes good”. If you have ever experimented with low carb bread you know how GROSS some of them can be. Most of them taste like an overcooked egg. As a girl who likes scrambled eggs a bit runny this is absolutely the worst taste ever. Not even close to bread, but thanks for trying. I had pretty much given up on the quick bread but based on title alone I had to try this one, she nailed it. It has no taste of overcooked egg, a very slight nuttiness from the coconut flour, and great texture, most importantly it is the perfect device to cram a sandwich in my mouth! For those who are worried about the coconut flavor my husband despises coconut and loves this bread for his breakfast sandwiches. The main picture and the instructional pictures are different because I went to write the post and realized pictures would probably be pretty helpful and I did not take any of the process last time I made them. So I decided to make a sandwich and eat it while I writing this. I only had salami in the fridge so that is what I had on my sandwich today!
Eating a low carb lifestyle was not just about getting healthier and losing weight but it really makes you think about everything you put in your mouth. It is like re learning to eat, yes it is true if you go back to a carb filled life after you lose the weight you will gain it all back, duh. Eating like that is how you got there in the first place! Can you enjoy the occasional slice of pizza and cake, sure! As long as you have the willpower to get right back on the train afterwards. It took me about 6 months of eating strict low carb to be able to indulge in something I wanted and then get right back to eating right. Most processed and quick foods are loaded up with carbs and fillers so by eating low carb you really have to eat clean by default and use real ingredients. My body can tell and it is happy with all the changes, now If I could kick the wine habit down a little I could probably lose the last 15 that are still hanging around but hey, I am a work in progress! Anyways, there are a ton of great books out there regarding low carb if you want to learn more. I am not a doctor, I am simply sharing the experience of my husband and I on our way back to getting healthy. This is what is working for us. I have family members that are having tremendous success on the weight watchers plan, so to each their own. There are so many options to a healthy diet and guess what, they all revolve around eating healthy, real, food. If you are wanting to change your lifestyle, get healthier, or lose weight look around and find a plan that works for you. The possibilities are endless!
