Banana peanut butter bites

Banana peanut butter bites

Alright all you low carbers don’t freak out when you see the nutritional information for this recipe. It is not exactly low carb but it sure is healthy and filling. Not only are these quick and easy to make but they are also a good source of plant based protein. I like to have these lying around when I need to jet out the door in the morning or when I need a quick healthy bite before a cardio session at the gym.

They also keep quite well so you can make a batch and use them for more than a week.

Low carb blueberry cheese cake scones

blueberry scones

 blueberry scones 3

I’m not a big fan of blueberries and never really got used to eating them on a regular basis. I did try a few times but it never really seemed to stick. That why this recipe can really help you get all those awesome health benefits that blueberries can offer, especially if you don’t like eating them alone. This is a stellar low carb scone recipe that will go perfectly with your coffee or tea so I do urge you to try it out.

Death by chocolate – Low carb chocolate bundt cake

low carb chocolate cake

Hey guys, it’s me again. Rania, and let me tell you about this gem of a recipe I just discovered.  Low carb Death by chocolate Bundt cake. If you’ve gotta go low carb with chocolate then this is the way to go! I really can’t believe that I’m able to eat such decadent sweets and call it low carb. It really does taste very close to a pound cake, its super moist and delicious and also quite low in calories  with 264 calories a serving and only 5 grams’ net carbs. This recipe makes 16 servings and I know by now you are probably thinking each serving is one bite right? wrong! its quite big, so you will need a deep Bundt cake pan. If you don’t have one you can just divide it up and make two cakes, yes it’s that big.

Well lets move on to the recipe and let me know how it goes

Low carb carrot cheese cake

Low carb carrot cheese cake

Low carb carrot cheese cake recipe


So here we have a totally new recipe that was the result of quite a bit of experimenting in the kitchen. Once you get the hang of the ingredients that are used to make low carb stuff you can start doing your own experiments. This one came out quite good but it could have easily gone the other way. Again I cant stress this enough, fad diets such as low carb, paleo and so on are not meant to be long term solutions. They should be used as tools to achieve certain short term weight loss goals. Nothing beats a balanced diet that contains all the nutrients that are needed to sustain your body. The reason I say this is because none of these diets have been around long enough to have sufficient long term scientific evidence to back their claims.
