When talking about “low carb”, one should keep in mind, that the term “low carb” is a very subjective thing. What will be low carb to some, for others it will be high carb and vice versa.
Some may be more active than others, or have a higher carb tolerance. One should find what works, and not compare oneself to others. It’s like comparing apples to oranges, because people are so unique, just like we have different perspectives, perceptions, beliefs, etc. we also have different needs.
Don’t be afraid of eating carbohydrates..
Simple and delicious lunches 👌 😍 basmati rice with veggies, tofu and tomato sauce 🍚 🍆 🍅 i’m slowly starting to throw my stuff for canada together and i’ve never thought it would be so hard to pack for three month 😓 by the way if there’s anyone who wants to meet up, i will be in TORONTO, MONTREAL, QUEBEC AND VANCOUVER 🍁
Omg I made sweet potato fries 👀 I can’t believe I used to boil potatoes before baking them when it’s so much easier to just chop (toss with salt, Italian herbs and a little oil) and bake at 450, leave for 25 minutes *flip* 20 more minutes! They are so good they don’t even need keptchup (I’ll still prolly use ketchup tho) 😻✨🍟
Banana bread No 2. (”The best”) • vegan • only consisting of whole foods coming out of nature • hclf (high carb, low fat) • no refined/processed sugar, only natural sugar (coming from dates) • the absolute best! Really delicious and fluffy and sweet with a perfect moisture and flavor!! My whole family and friends love it!! -> Decided to post the recipe because I got quite many asks about it and I promised lovely Danielle from sweeterthanabumblebee to publish it! Oh and it really is the bomb!! :)
Ingredients: (remotely based on a recipe by thesimpleveganista) - 1.5 cups flour - around 4 teaspoons baking powder - sprinkle of salt - round about 1/8 cup coconut oil (can be replaced by milk alternative) - round about 1/3 cup soy rice milk (or any other plant based milk) - a tiny bit of vanilla extract - 1 small handful finely chopped dates - 4 - 5 bananas (preferably overripe, number depends on how extreme you want the banana flavor) - toppings: I used oats, cinnamon and whole almonds
- Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl - in a separate bowl mash the bananas - it’s easier if they are overripe and the bread will get sweeter when the bananas are really ripe - While mixing together the dry ingredients, slowly add the mashed bananas and chopped dates, as well as the milk, coconut oil and vanilla extract - stir the dough till it gets really smooth and place everything in an oiled bread pan + top with all your pretty toppings - put into preheated oven for maybe an hour, baking time depends on how moist you want your bread, at 200 °C - enjoy this beauty!! Eat it just like it is or top it with anything you want, I topped mine with creamy peanut butter! Heaven! :)
