There is a healthier recipe for almost everything
April 8, 2016 7:08am CST
We got to talking about muffins last night (yes, inspired by the rap that inspired my last post), and hubby said he would have to make some soon. I said, yeah, would have to look for a low carb recipe, and he said he doubted that existed. I snickered and started sending him links. Yes, there is a lower carb version of almost everything. One can use all kinds of things, like stevia for sugar, and alternative flours, like almond or coconut. Many taste really good too! I found a handful of recipes that we shall just have to try, one for pumpkin (and I have a couple cans I didn’t use last Thanksgiving that we need to eat up). You have any good low or lower carb recipes I should try?

I agree that there are healthier versions of just about eveerything. But some of them are not as delicious. My own approach to healthier foods is to serve smaller servings. Stevia does not replace sugar all the time. But we can choose not to eat sugary desserts every day.

There is baking stevia now, so given time, it can replace more. OR one can always cut about the amounts of sugar in something, or split it half and half with stevia. Now stuff that needs powdered sugar I have yet to see a good sub for

Don't care about fats, don't like store bought stuff, but homemade stuff? I bet I could find some things you'd like even with a few small substitutes. Hubby said that too, but we now make our own stir fry sause with no sugar or preservatives and he loves it. Alon with pizza with a meat and cheese crust, and some other things.

I like stevia too, especially now that it's not that expensive. I just tried almond milk again today, after having not had it for quite some time - like over ten years - and it was good. Not that expensive either, and I liked the unsweetened variety. I use coconut water a lot for hydration. We also just started eating vegetables and meat together as a stir fry recently, and leaving out the rice. Not so much a recipe, but a way of making things lower carb but nearly as filling. I've started eating refried black beans in my tortillas for lunch - lower carb, and though I don't care as much about the low fat aspect, these are. They're good for you too.
