When developing new eating habits, it is easy to give into temptations to eat foods that you once enjoyed every day and have now limited or completely eliminated from your diet. One way to avoid this temptation is to find substitutes for the foods you love but may not be helping you to attain your goal of a healthy lifestyle.
In this blog entry, we bring you a recipe substitute from Fit Men Cook for what we know is a hard food to avoid- BREAD! Bread is often a staple in many households, often served at multiple meals. Unfortunately, all of that bread equals a large carbohydrate load that can leave you feeling sluggish and makes it difficult for you to reach your lifestyle goals.
What we love about this substitute recipe is that it is SIMPLE while also fitting the ELMM clinic nutrition recommendations. This recipe yields four servings of “cloud bread”. It is perfect for eating plain or using for a sandwich. One of our providers even experimented with half mozzarella and half cheddar cheese and loved the result!
¾ cup shredded cheddar cheese (or any other shredded cheese or blend)
1 tablespoon heavy cream
4 ounces almond flour (about 1/2 cup)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional or add your own favorite spice)
