Keto Bread ( Low Carb, Gluten Free & Paleo friendly)

Keto Bread ( Low Carb, Gluten Free & Paleo friendly)
Craving bread but need to cut your carbohydrates down this bread is for you only 6 g of carbs in half a loaf. Easiest. Bread. Ever
Source:
Serves: 4 bread muffins
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Ingredients
  • 3 large eggs
  • ⅓ cup (75 g) ground almonds
  • 1½ tsp baking powder
  • 2 Tbsp. of butter
Directions
  1. , add the ingredients to a bowl and whisk until smooth and aerated. Pour into a greased loaf tin or muffin tin for bread muffins ( makes 4) and bake in the oven for 20 minutes at 400 F
Notes
1 slice (just one slice!) of bread from a leading brand has 18 g of carbohydrates. Half a loaf of keto bread has just 6 g! A lack of carbs and a lot of egg means that this bread will not have that dry, crusty consistency like a regular loaf, in fact it’s more like a savory cake. If you want to crisp it up put slices under the grill to toast.

What is Keto: It’s short for Ketosis which is basically a process that forces your body to switch to burning fat as a primary energy source. It’s how we all used to operate before humans started processing grains and eating a carbohydrate heavy diet, long sciencey gist of it: by cutting out carbs you can turn yourself back into a super-efficient fat-burning caveman!

Want to go Keto?
-You must consume less than 20 g carbohydrate each day.
-You cannot eat grains, legumes, starches, milk, fruit, yogurt… anything starchy or sugary is a no go.
-You mustn't be afraid to eat fat! If you deprive your body of a major energy source like carbs you must replace it with another (nuts, fish, oils, butter, peanut butter, avocado etc.) otherwise you’re just starving your body…

Mashed Cauliflower Garlic & Romano Cheese

Mashed Cauliflower Garlic & Romano Cheese
Creamy and delicious a good alternative to mashed potatoes. A perfect match to pork chops and green beans
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 1 head cauliflower
  • salt & freshly cracked pepper
  • 4-6 cloves garlic, peeled
  • ⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ⅓ c cream
  • ⅓ c grated Romano cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped chives
  • Salt & freshly cracked pepper
Directions
  1. Clean cauliflower and break into large flowerets. In a large piece of aluminum foil, tightly wrap cauliflower flowerets and peeled garlic cloves that have been seasoned with salt and pepper and place in 350°F oven and bake for 45-55 minutes or until tender. Put into casserole dish and mash to desired consistency (I like a little texture to mine). Add Oil and cream and mix in well. Add the grated Romano cheese and season with salt and pepper as desired.
Notes
Cauliflower has a lot more moisture in it than does potatoes and then boiling it to death just magnifies the water-logging process. Baking it solves this problem.

Can be made ahead and reheated in a 350°F oven until piping hot.
