There is a lot of interest at the moment in the benefits of combining low carb eating while adding healthy fats into our diets. These healthy fats include cold-pressed plant oils, salmon, high-quality dairy, nuts and seeds. Cutting down on processed grains and sugars is a great way to increase energy, lose excess weight, reduce cravings and balance blood sugar and insulin spikes throughout the day.
I have been following this low carb eating plan for most of the year and have found it beneficial to my wellbeing, not to mention a satisfying and delicious way to eat.
Recently I created some new Inspire Meal Bag recipes, which are low in carbs, while rich in vegetables and healthy fats. Check them out in the produce department at Fresh Choice Nelson. The recipe cards on the front of the bags are labelled low carb and keto friendly. My favourite is the five spice beef on cauliflower puree.
If you are following a low carb eating plan, this dessert recipe pairs well with all of the Inspire Meal Bags.
