A common misunderstanding regarding low carb is that you eat nothing but meat, eggs and dairy. This may be one way of doing it, and it works fine for some people, but it’s certainly not the only way you can enjoy a low-carb lifestyle.
Excluding dairy from your diet can be an effective way to speed up your weight loss and help reversing type 2 diabetes. Dairy products contain not only milk sugar (lactose), but also milk protein (casein), which stimulates insulin secretion more than other types of protein. This is why milk is great for a growing baby, but not that great for an adult who wants to lose weight.
A lot of people who limit dairy will still enjoy real butter, since butter even though it’s made from milk contains only trace amounts of milk protein and sugar. That’s why we use butter in our dairy-free recipes. Alternatively, use coconut or olive oil.
Whether you’re in the mood for breakfast, lunch, dinner or a snack we’ve got you covered. Let the recipes below inspire you and prove that low carb and dairy free doesn’t have to be difficult or boring, but really, really delicious.
