This week, our Fresh Choice Nelson guest blogger, Paula, has a low carb loaf recipe for you to try at home. Take it away Paula!
I have embraced a low carb diet way of eating since the start of this year. This includes no wheat, grains or sugar, so I have naturally started to adopt a gluten free diet.
Most people love bread, and I am no exception. I am often asked for a low carb loaf alternative. There are plenty of recipes out there, but I have created this one, it has taken a few tweaks to get it just right. I am so happy with the result. So, I decided to share the recipe with you. All the ingredients can be found at Fresh Choice Nelson. They also stock a fabulous range of low carb crackers and other goodies to stock up on. My nutand seed bread is best served toasted. My favourite toppings for this low carb loaf are Pic’s peanut butter or poached eggs. Try smashed avovado taken to a new level by adding some crumbled feta, cherry tomatoes, basil and a good splash of olive oil.
