I've been experimenting with a low-carb lifestyle since June and I feel fantastic. Anytime I want something that would normally be Carby, I google a recipe and then modify it to suit my needs, ingredients on hand, or cravings. My husband has a cold this week, so I've been cooking soup and other healthy things up a storm to help him while nourishing my own creativity, and immunity boosting meal creation! I know he'll want something crunchy to go with leftover soup when we break our fast at noon (more on intermittent fasting in another post).
These are low carb flax meal chips to go with leftover soup. These will add super crunch with zero impact carbs. Simple recipe: 1 cup golden flax meal 1 tsp garlic powder 1/2 tsp turmeric powder 1 packet stevia 1/2 c water Herbs and spices
First mix all the dry ingredients together in a medium sized bowl, then add the water and stir. Let's sit 5 to 10 minutes so all the water is absorbed. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 400°F. Roll the mixture into tiny little balls on parchment paper on a cookie sheet. Press down each ball with another piece of parchment paper until all the balls are flat. Sprinkle with whatever spices you like. I used Rosemary, cracked pepper, and Himalayan salt. Bake for eight minutes. Watch closely so they don't burn. Turn off the oven and let sit in the warm oven for 20 minutes until their crispy. Yum!
