Low Carb Diet

The idea behind a low-carb diet is simple.  If your body doesn’t get any carbohydrates it has to attack the fat deposits, which help you lose weight. Therefore, a lot of diets recommend you to cut down on carbs, especially in the evenings. With these low-carb alternatives you can still have satisfying and tasty food!

1. Almond and Coconut Flour Instead Of Wheat Flour

Using almond or coconut flour instead of normal wheat flour can be a great alternative for people who want to bake and it still follow a low-carb diet. Unfortunately, it is not as simple as just replacing the wheat flour with almond or coconut flour since the wheat ensures that your baked goods stay juicy. We recommend you add nuts or other gluten-free thickeners, such as carob or guar gum, so you can still get juicy and delicious baked goods.
