Eating on cloud 9
One of the many things that most people worry about changing to a low-carb lifestyle is giving up bread. We have become a sandwich nation. Taco Bell ran a campaign for years saying think outside the bun, that was a clever way of saying everything else you eat at fast food restaurants has a bun on it, try something different. Well this bread recipe is gluten-free and carb free. It has 3 main ingredients and everything else is just flavoring. It is great for making sandwiches, in this photo, I have made sausage, egg, cheese cloud sandwich.
When people try to do Low-Carb they have to learn how to cook all over again. Books like the ketogenic cookbook by Jimmy Moore the author of Keto Clarity could really help a new person trying Low carb/ keto.
- Walker Cheesy Eggs
- 2 eggs , 2 TBS sour cream, 1 slice of American cheese, pinch salt, 1 tsp pepper.
- 3 Strips Bacon
When eating low-carb you have to build an arsenal of dishes that will keep you going. You have to find ways to feed your family a healthy meal. Things like the spiralizer can help you turn vegetables like zucchini into Zoodles to eat with a meat sauce to take the place of pasta. Even though I think that we have been doped into believing we need to eat three times a day, if you are going to eat three times spiralized vegetables is a great thing to try.
I use my cloud like most people use regular bread, to make hamburger or cold cut sandwiches. You can use things to shape the bread the way that fits what you need and things like cookie cutters do a great job. The bread itself has little taste so you can and the flavor you like. It is a dish made from eggs so if you are not a person that is egg intolerant you might not like it. For most people I think they will see this is a great alternative to eating regular wheat bread filled with gluten.
- Buffalo Wings
- Mild sauce, Ranch Dressing,
- 2 glasses of Water
- 3 eggs, separated
- 3 tablespoons cream cheese (or cottage cheese)
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1 gram artificial sweetener ( I use stevia)
- Heat oven to 300 degrees.
- Separate the eggs yolks in one mixing bowl whites in the other. Be sure there are no yolks in the white. Fat will prevent the whites from fluffing.
- In one bowl, mix together the egg yolks, the 3 tbs. Cream Cheese and the one packet of Sweetener until smooth.
- In the other bowl add 1/4 teaspoon of Cream of Tartar to the whites and beat the whites on high-speed until they are fluffy and form nice peaks.
- Very carefully fold the egg yolk mixture into the egg whites until mixed, but try to not break down the fluffiness of the egg whites too much.
- Spray two cookie sheets with Pam or other fat-free cooking spray.
- With a large spoon, “scoop” the mixture into 10 even rounds on the sheets (about the size of the top-half of the McDonald’s hamburger bun; roughly 3/4 inch thick and 4 to 5 inches across).
- Bake on the middle rack. Here is when you have to watch them, because the cooking time the same on any two batches. It is somewhere around 1/2 hour, but it could be less or more. You just need to watch them until them become nice and golden brown (again, the color of a McDonald’s bun).
- Remove from the pans and cool on a rack or cutting board.
- Chicken Parmesan
- Salad, Ranch dressing
- 2 cups of pre-bagged Iceberg salad, Ranch dressing.
- 3 glasses of Water.
It is best if put these in a zip lock bag and let them sit overnight in the refrigerator. The texture will then be really consistent like a fresh loaf of bread. This is not to say eating them fresh out of the oven with butter is bad. It taste great as well. The darker the color of the cloud bread the more egg taste it will have, a soft light yellowish brown tint on the top taste the best.
I made this more than a dozen times so far and I tweak it with a different flavor, I am trying to find the ones that work. Soul bread, it is supposed to be another low-carb bread. That will be the next thing I try.
