At the start of 2015, I decided it was high time that I lost the last of my child-bearing weight as I plan to have no more (I have 3 children) and my youngest is already 4 🙁
I have dieted in the past both successfully and unsuccessfully using low carb, low fat, low sugar, high protein meal replacements etc . But I wanted something different (and to be honest, easier). I was chatting to some friends whilst on holiday who are believers in the Banting meal plans. I looked into it and decided to have a go. Now almost 4 weeks later, I have lost a significant amount of weight without even trying- you heard me-not hungry at all. I have completely cut sugar, increased my fat intake, aim for medium amount of protein and as few carbs as possible. Yes it means I forgo rice, pasta, potatoes, gluten and anything similar to those but it is achievable, even giving up my Sunday roast potatoes!
Along the way, I have been looking at replacing the everyday things my family enjoys with gluten free sugar free versions so that my children will grow up eating less sugar and benefiting from a lower carb lifestyle.
I came across this recipe on Pinterest and decided to modify it. The original recipe was gluten free, but called for a lot of honey and almond butter. Almond butter is fine and good, but I have trouble finding it locally, so just swapped it for regular unsalted butter. I hope you enjoy trying it!
If you do try this recipe , I’d love to hear what you thought. Remember to look out for more gluten and sugar free recipes on my blog as I reinvent my families favourite baked goods.
