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.

These Paleo chocolate muffins are good enough to serve as dessert, but they are also wholesome enough that I allow myself and the kids a couple of them for breakfast on weekends. An added bonus: unlike refined-flour-and-sugar-muffins, these muffins are very filling, probably thanks to using almond butter in lieu of flour. Click for the recipe
