Low Carb Diet

"Low carb" is not just a diet, it is a lifestyle. Low carb diet means less carbohydrates and more fat. This diet is most similar to the original human diet before the arrival of the industrial refined foods, and just as such, provides optimal conditions for good health and normal body weight. Low Carb Diet has other names such as Paleo or Primal, and actually represents an entire movement which has achieved last decade a great popularity and spread to the western countries. The basis of this diet is the real authentic foods like fish, meat, eggs, plenty of different vegetables and healthy natural fats. You can eat full-fat dairy products, nuts and fruit. One should avoid foods high in sugar and starch, such as bread, pasta, various pastries and refined vegetable oils and margarines. It is best to use foods closest to its original form, preferably from organic or homegrown, and avoid the industrial products that are nutritionally poor and contain many artificial additives and harmful chemicals. Only if you use the right food in its original form, you will be healthy, strong, resistant and slim.

The main problem with Low carb diet is that you should not eat bread. For those who cannot imagine life without bread and without sandwiches, here's a great flourless bread recipe.

Tips

  • I recommend using unground flax (linseed) rather than ground flax meal. Grinding flax seeds just before cooking improves the taste, plus it’s much easier to store whole seeds.
  • Sparkling mineral water adds moisture to the mix and make the texture a bit lighter.
  • Using loaf tin instead muffin pan is a good idea.
  • You can use some Italian herbs and a bit of parmesan cheese too or try to find your ideal combination.
  • As an alternative, try to put some thinly sliced cheddar cheese on top.

Nutrition Facts

When you follow the Low Carb Diet, you actually count Net Carbs, which means the total carbohydrate content of the food minus the fiber content. The Net Carb number reflects the grams of carbohydrate that significantly impact your blood sugar level.

Practically, here you have 15 grams total carbohydrates, minus 9 from fiber, that means, one muffin contains 6 grams of net carbs.


Fibre is very important for your healthy digestion. It is very difficult to get enough of it on a low-carb diet, when you cut out the grains.


This bread (muffin) recipe includes ingredients high in fiber, to help ensure you get enough.

      @FlourishAnyway Main ingredient, flax seed provides 3 incredible benefits. First, flax is a great source of fiber. Second, flax is a plant source of omega-3. Third, flax contains lignans, which reduce the risk of breast cancer in women and prostate cancer in men. Other ingredients are very healthy too. Thank you for your kind comment Flourish.

      @Vvitta The flavour is quite nutty and I now far prefer it to normal bread, especially as it leaves you feeling much lighter and without the "oooff" heavy feeling of wheat. Thank you for the comment.

      @DDE Thank you Devika for the comment. This is really very good combination of ingredients and very, very healthy. The texture is not exactly the same as bread, it's a bit like a cross between brown bread and a moist cake.
