That looks really good!!
Would you say it was reasonably low carb?


Alison Golden June 11, 2013 at 1:16 pm

Hmm, technically it is, but for many people, myself included, nuts can be tricky. Especially if you’re trying to lose weight, I would be very sparing with your consumption of nuts.

I like that there are more choices now with the Paleo template, but I also think of some of these recipes as Paleo temptations! I find I have difficulty with recipes that are “treats”. I would also like to have the nutritional information breakdown on recipes as I have problems with blood sugar swings.


Alison Golden June 18, 2013 at 2:45 pm

Vicki, to be honest, you are better off testing your blood sugar. I personally don’t eat bready products of any kind because I can’t control them. I don’t know if they set my blood sugar off (I suspect they do) but it is good to learn which food stuffs do as it can be so individual. The best way to learn is to test with a glucometer before and after you eat a certain item.

Well I made this bread and I have to say I was disappointed.
It was very ‘eggy’, heavy and dry. Dont know where I went wrong. Maybe I cooked it too long?
It was slightly improved when I toasted it and loaded it with butter though!


Alison Golden June 20, 2013 at 7:32 am

Hmm, this isn’t my recipe but I have made it and I thought it was great. I’m not sure what you mean by “eggy’ exactly I do find that I often have to adjust the amount of eggs in recipes, they seem to make or break the outcome.

Hi, I am completely new to this style of cooking/living so any help would be appreciated. Firstly, this recipe looks fab so I’m going to try it for myself and my son. However my husband is on the autoimmune paleo and I cannot find anything anywhere like bread, snacks, biscuits, pizza bases, scones etc that don’t contain nuts, nut flours, eggs or grains. Any ideas greatly received cos my husband is a snack a Holic and is finding this new lifestyle very hard.
