If lockdown taught me anything, it’s that cake is an extremely tasty comfort food, however it can create lockdown lovehandles! To rectify that problem, I am full steam ahead with the Keto lifestyle again, which I really enjoy… but I also enjoy cake. As Keto follows a routine of high fat, low carbs, it can be hard to accomodate calorie laden treats, however I’ve found there is always an alternative and I can still bake cakes whilst on Keto.
I recently received Baking Without Sugar and Nuts and Seeds, both invaluable healthy eating recipe books from White Owl Books for those following or about to embark on Keto or low carb lifestyles. Read more about the books below and don’t forget to enter the giveaway to win copies!
Baking Without Sugar written by Sophie Michell is filled with mouthwatering recipes ranging from desserts, right though to mains featuring a fabulous Spinach and Artichoke Calzone. Basically all my favourite foods and more importantly cake! A change in diet or lifestyle works well when you allow yourself a treat (within moderation), but if that treat still follows the guidelines, then it’s even better! You can purchase this directly from Pen and Sword Books (RRP £18.99).
Delicious recipes include Mandarin, Rosemary, Olive Oil and Almond Cake (above) and a Pepperoni, Chilli Tomato and Basil Pizza Recipe (below), which I will definitely be trying. The pizza is made with a fat head dough using grated mozzarella and ground almonds. If you aren’t a fan of ground almonds, then you can always supplement with coconut flour! Fat head dough isn’t something I have attempted yet, but the time is coming as I do miss pizza!
Nom nom nom!
Within moderation, nuts and seeds can easily be incorporated into many tantalizing recipes, or you can simply grab a handful on the go. There are so many health benefits to all the nuts and seeds available though and sometimes it can seem like a minefield knowing which to use. This is why Nuts and Seeds written by Patsy Westcott is handy to have on your book shelf!
With information regarding all different nuts and seeds, alongside how to prepare and add them to a dish, this book is a really handy resource. Nuts are a great source of protein, alongside other nutrients and health benefits. So if you have ever been in doubt, it’s worth a read! You can purchase the book directly from Pen and Sword Books (£14.99).
If you are curious about a low carb/ low sugar diet, then why not enter the giveaway to win a copy of both of the books featured?
