Low Carb Recipes

If you’re having trouble with your blood sugar, or if you need to lose weight but find that you’re unable to do it on the standard low-fat, high-carb diet, talk with your doctor about switching to a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet. The recipes featured here typically contain 10 grams of net carbs per serving or less, making them suitable even for very low-carb diets.

Bacon wrapped pork tenderloin is amazing. Wrapping the pork in bacon not just enhances the flavor, but also ensures the pork stays super juicy. My roasted pork tenderloin is wonderful, but bacon wrapped is now my favorite way of preparing pork tenderloin. Click for the recipe

Gluten Free Bread

This homemade gluten free bread is made with almond flour. It’s soft, fragrant, and makes a great canvas for sweet or savory toppings.

When making homemade gluten free bread, it is important however to adjust our expectations. The yeasty aroma and gluten-induced fluffiness that we love about traditional bread cannot be achieved without, well, yeast and gluten, so this is more of a quick bread that fills the need (if you still have it) to make a sandwich or to have a slice of bread for breakfast.

For this purpose, this gluten-free bread works very well, and since it’s low in carbs and relatively high in fat, it will fill you up better and will spare you the blood sugar roller coaster normally associated with flour bread.
