LCHF Breakfast by Fanny #4 – Sesame Crispbread

Sesamknacke1600 2What do you eat for breakfast on LCHF? The short answer is you don’t need breakfast. But in case you want one – and not bacon & eggs – here’s suggestion number four.

As before the creator is Fanny Lindkvist, who runs a popular Swedish blog and the Instagram account LessCarbs.

Sesame Crispbread

I love to sink my teeth into something crunchy now and then. As I suffer from IBS and don’t tolerate flaxseed this LCHF crispbread is a great alternative to flaxseed version. In addition, it also tastes better if you ask me (and many others), this is one of Lesscarbs most popular recipes.

Ingredients (makes about 30)

sesamecrisp

● 1¼ cup (300 ml) sesame seeds
● ½ cup (100 ml) sunflower seeds
● 2 oz. (60g) grated cheese
● 1 tablespoon psyllium-seed husk
● < ½ cup (100 ml) water
● 2 eggs
● ½–1 teaspoon salt (I think my taste bulbs have changed, I now use ¼ – MAX ½ teaspoon)

Watch the Movie That Exposes the Cholesterol Cover-Up

Is high cholesterol the main cause of heart disease? Are cholesterol-lowering drugs miracle drugs, nearly free of side-effects, that the majority of the adult population needs to take every day?

This movie exposes the exaggerations and the grossly misleading marketing of daily medications to people who don’t need them. That is, most people who take cholesterol-lowering drugs without having heart disease. That’s when the risk of bad side effects (that are silenced) usually outweighs the benefit.

There’s another problem: total focus on cholesterol is profitable for the pharmaceutical industry, but it sucks energy from all other effective lifestyle changes to prevent heart disease. Real health is not to be found in a bottle of pills.

Statin Nation

The movie Statin Nation does a good job of providing information about the cholesterol cover-up. We are now able to stream the movie online for our members (free trial available).

You can watch the trailer above. Watch the full movie here: Statin Nation (for members).

Sign up for a free trial month – watch Statin Nation and get immediate access to many other videos and movies.

After a free trial month, should you choose to continue, membership is $9 per month. Every dollar is used to finance the Diet Doctor organization. Our goal is to help ever more people revolutionize their health. Continue Reading →

Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics: Stop Worrying about Saturated Fat!

Butter

The paradigm shift in nutrition is really happening and it’s moving ever faster. Even the industry-sponsored main association of American dietitians (AND) is now saying that saturated fat is probably nothing to worry about!

Instead they recommend eating less carbohydrates, especially less sugar. Pretty big news.

Here’s a nice summary by Dr. Sarah Hallberg (of recent TEDx fame): Earth Shattering, Pigs Flying, Hell Freezing Nutrition News

I’ve added Dr. Hallberg’s blog to our page with updates from great health blogs.
