Here’s another example of how simple it is to make a sandwich with fresh ingredients and kept Paleo! This is Dan from Primal4Life bringing you “Paleo Bread with Carrot Mushroom & Ham Keto Scramble”. So many endless combinations, so little time. Well, I guess it’s a good thing that meals like this don’t require much cooking time! In about ten minutes, I was able to kick off my ultra-low-carb Paleo Bread in my toaster oven, melt up my PrimalFat Coconut Ghee, sauté some veggies and Applegate Black Forest Ham, and cook up my eggs. It’s not that hard folks, and if it sounds intimidating, take a breath, relax, and give it a whirl. What’s the worst that will happen? It doesn’t taste good or it burns, and you grab something else. Or you succeed and bask in the glory of cooking your own Paleo meal! Ten years ago, I barely knew how to boil water. Look at me now! That’s from slowly trying new foods, attempting different cooking techniques, having fun in the kitchen, and taking pride in what I’ve created.
Why am I using Paleo Bread? Great question! I slowly strayed from the typical GMO-infested breads, and opted for so-called “healthier” choices. Let’s leave their names out, cause I’m sure you can pick several off the top of your head. I went with whole wheat and multi-grain, because it’s healthier, right? Let’s look into that one…. Blood sugar and insulin levels are vastly affected when it comes to breads that contain wheat, in fact your blood sugar levels can spike more than candy after consuming wheat, for longer periods of time. That spike is what causes inflammation, which leads to higher cholesterol levels, higher triglycerides, sickness, brain fog, and even rashes. Remember that cholesterol is vital, and comes in to help out by putting out inflammation. By keeping inflammation low, the body is in a much happier and healthier state. This is where Paleo Bread comes in to save the day! It’s beyond gluten free!!!! It’s also void of soy, dairy, starch, and GMO’s, and by using coconut flour and/or almond flour, it’s not going to spike those blood/insulin levels that we just mentioned. This, in turn, allows your body to function without inflammation! Plus, Paleo Bread is low in calories, has just one net carb, and has decent fiber and protein content to allow you to feel fuller for longer periods of time. Guess what that does? Helps you lose weight…. So with much less inflammation, no GMO’s/soy/gluten/dairy/starch, a good amount of protein and fiber to assist in weight loss, and very little carbs, can you guess which bread is the way to go?
