Some days… I eat this for breakfast with an egg!
I’ve not actually used a cup for this yet… I have been making it in a small Pyrex storage round. This is so fluffy and chocolate… you are going to love it!
1 Tbsp of cacao
2 Tbsps of Almond Flour
1 Tbsp Truvia sweetener
1/4 tsp of baking powder
1 large egg
2 Tbsps of real butter
1 Tbsp of Half and Half
1/2 tsp of Pure Vanilla (optional)
Sprinkle of Sea Salt
Real whipped cream… like Reddi Whip from the freezer
Melt the butter in the microwave for 20 seconds in a glass pyrex storage round or ramekin dish.
Roll the butter around in the container to make a nonstick container.
Add all of the ingredients to the dish, starting with the almond flour, baking powder, sweetener and cacao and whisk in the rest of the ingredients til completely blended.
Then microwave for 90 seconds. Let cool.
Top with real cream whip cream!
Enjoy! Let me know how it works for you by commenting below.
On a low carbohydrate diet, the thing I miss most is pizza. But as with everything else, you just have to find a substitute.
1 ½ cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese (168 g)
2 tbsp Cream Cheese (28 g)
¾ cup Almond Flour (84 g)
1 pinch Garlic Salt
Season your crust before adding toppings.
Your favorite meats
Your favorite veggies
Low Carb Pizza Sauce
Plan ahead for the pizza toppings that you will use. Pre-cook any raw ingredients so that they are ready to go. You’ll have some time to dice veggies while the crust is baking.
Put your baking sheet in the oven Preheat to 450 degrees F.
In a microwave-safe bowl,combine mozzarella and cream cheese.
Microwave for 15-30 seconds at a time, and stir with a fork until combined
Once combined add in the almond flour. Knead the almond flour into the cheese and make it into a well-blended ball of dough.
Place your ball of dough on a large piece of parchment paper. Use another piece of parchment paper and a rolling pin to flatten out your dough. I try to get my dough down to about 1/8″ to 1/4″ thick. (Save the second piece of parchment paper, you’ll need it later)
Pinch the crust edges up to hold the toppings.
Season your dough with basil and garlic. Poke holes all around your crust and put in the oven.
Bake the dough for 8-10 minutes until you get a nice dark brown bottom. Remove from the oven.
Move your cooked dough onto the other parchment paper
Start with the sauce and add your toppings.. top with cheese.
Bake or broil your pizza for another few minutes until your cheese is melted and starts to brown.
Woke up at 8:22 a.m. Sunday morning March 31
Plan to drink 2 liters of water and walk at least 6000 steps …aiming for 10,000
I was very mindful of my plan to do a 16 hour fast today. Or as they say in the fasting world, 16/8 schedule.
Thomas DeLauer of 6 Pack Abs says that I should end my fast with a high glycemic meal. I didn’t see that on YouTube until after my first meal today.
My first meal is at 12 pm (noon) today.. I stopped my meals yesterday at 8 pm. I went to Mojitos with some friends. Unfortunately, I ate quite a bit of food including guacamole, churros and veggie empanadas plus some vodka with cranberry juice. Then at home I had some popcorn smothered with butter.
Yeah, I packed on 2.5 lbs instantly to see if I could lose the 2.5 lbs instantly with intermittent fasting. This will be helpful for my Always Eating Out lifestyle!
At 12pm – Noon, at the end of my 16 hours from sleeping and waiting until noon to eat, my stomach was cramping a little. And I was ravenous. But that is probably because I normally eat by 9 am.
DeLauer says we should have a high-glycemic meal after our fast. No problem! Didn’t know, so I didn’t do it today
Today I broke my fast at 12: 26 pm with –
Salad (baby romaine, roma tomatoes, shredded carrots, and 1/4 avocado with sunflower seeds) with this blog’s balsamic dressing. Also a Sourdough/Pepperjack grilled sandwich with a cup of coffee.
While I was fasting I only had Aquafina water and black coffee.
at 2:45 pm I don’t feel hungry!
1 bowl of broccoli soup… which the recipe is on this site as well.
For dinner I had BBQ ground chicken patty. Salad with Honey Mustard dressing and 1 slice of Sourdough with butter on it.
I also had 2 ounces of dark chocolate bar. Need my magnesium! lol
I don’t think it was that hard and actually I stopped eating around 6:15!
DeLauer says that you should only fast 3-5 times a week or you may lower your metabolic rate. I’m ok with that.
But, I plan to do it again tomorrow!
Well, this is my take on the low carb English muffin. I think it tastes alot like bread. But because of the egg… sometimes people don’t get it right. I would say…practice separating the egg with the shell… or just break it in a separate bowl and extract the yolk. No worries!
You can use a small Pyrex storage container for this… or a large ramekin. In any case this is what you will need.
1 TBSP of real butter
3 TBSP of almond flour
1 egg white
1/4 tsp of baking powder
pinch of sea salt
Melt your butter in the pyrex container. Coat the bottom of the container with the butter so your muffin won’t stick.
Next add the almond flour, baking powder and pinch of salt. Whip in the egg white. Just take the spoon and fish that yolk out when you break it. No worries, this is not a souffle!
Next we place this mixture in the microwave oven for 90 seconds or 1:30 as my microwave displays. It should puff up and then fall.
It will be hot to handle, so let it cool a few seconds. Then as soon as you can pick it up, fork that muffin out of there.
Let it cool before toasting… 🙂 And be careful how long you toast it… it will burn up faster than toast. So use a low setting.
I always toast mine … butter it, cream cheese it and sometimes add natural peanut butter or almond butter.
I also use these to make a grilled cheese! Oh yeah! Enjoy! Let me know how it works for you by commenting below.
