Today, I am sharing this delicious low carb coffee cake recipe that will satisfy your carb cravings.
My priorities have shifted lately since I started following a low starch diet, I now highly value my health even more than before. For this reason I decided to eliminate coffee from my diet and become best friends with teas, pumpkin lattes and more teas. I used to be a heavy cafe au lait drinker and was not gonna give it away for anything.
Since following a grain free diet, I started facing my own insecurities (though that’s for another post). It’s true that food can provide a lot of comfort and a sense of security. Most comfort foods are made of grain flours and sugars. When you stop eating them, it’s like you have nowhere to hide. You can no longer grab that piece of bread, savour that donut at the end of a stressful day, or grab that burger at the mall because the smell of the buns are just so irresistible, and life is too short not to.
So by avoiding that feeling of reaching out to comfort food, you are now facing the feeling and not “distracting” it. I want to write more about this in another blog post..but for now, let’s keep this post about the low carb coffee cake recipe I’m about to share 🙂
This recipe is so delicious. I completely made it up as I was craving something to snack on with tea. It turned pretty amazing not to share it with you.. So here goes
