I have been trialling out some changes in the way I bake recently and I'm happy to report that the family still thinks they are delicious and 'normal'. In cakes I have replaced white flour with wholemeal and yesterday changed the sunflower oil for olive oil - still made a scrumptious cake. Next is to change some of the sugar for honey. This feels good - cakes, but healthier ones Just felt the need to share.
i did that for many many years, being taught that it was important to eat the main part of your diet of whole grains, and then fruits and vegetables, and lastly meats and fats..however, when i began to develop symptoms of type 2 diabetes, i now am limiting nearly all my carbs down to next to nothing to get my blood sugar under control...all those lovely whole grain homemade breads and baked goods are now banned from my life.
It was suggested to me to watch the movie FATHEAD and I also read the book Good Calorie Bad Calorie by Gary Taubes..you might want to check those out. Here I thought i was doing the right thing for myself and my family and now i know different..wasted all those years doing the wrong things.
I'm really replacing a lot now..replacing carbs with meats and fats
Bloom where you are planted.
I look forward to hearing about your next replacement adventure !
Here is one of my favorites:
Yummy non-dairy seasoned pop corn
Make organic pop corn as usual, instead of butter warm some organic first cold press olive oil, drizzle on the pop corn & mix well, sprinkle salt, fresh ground black pepper, onion, garlic & chili powders, then sprinkle with nutritional yeast & mix again. Yummy!
