It’s delicious and easy, what’s not to love? This guilt-free recipe for low carb chocolate chip cookies prooves that healthy recipes can be just a delicious as the real thing, even on the keto diet.
Creating delicious recipes with healthy foods that taste like the not so healthy kind, has become one of my favorite things to do. Ever since I first started out on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, I became fascinated with recreating classic recipes and making them more diet-friendly. It was partially because I missed eating all of my favorite foods and also because it amazed me to see what I could do with all of these new ingredients I was learning about.
I never really thought about the way I was eating until after I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. They explained to me that diet had nothing to do with this disease and that it neither caused it or could cure it. Once I was told that diet had little to do with the illness I and I found out that I would be taking medicines known to cause cancer, I started to explore a healthier way of eating. It’s amazing how prooving the doctors wrong about diet and trying to heal myself, drove me to create so many delicious guilt-free recipes.
Although I do not follow the Specific Carbohydrate Diet these days I still make lots of recipes perfect for that lifestyle. Once you see how delicious food can be, even when it’s healthy, it seems crazy to go back to eating the old way, Plus, eating low carb and keto recipes seem to work best for me. I find that when I eat traditional foods like pizza or bread, I feel sluggish and bloated, which to me says my body is inflamed and not happy with what I have been putting into it.
Instead of daydreaming about eating the real thing, I created low carb versions of my favorite recipes like this Deep Dish Pizza, and a flourless bread that would be great for keto if you sub the honey for your favorite sweeteners like stevia or monk fruit.
So I will continue to experiment with low carb recipes and make recipes that are perfect the Specific Carbohydrate Diet as well as recipes for the keto diet.
