Low Carb Herb Bread

Posted Dec 10 2010 7:02pm

Hi!

Did you all miss me? Man it’s been a hectic couple weeks. I ended up having to work much more than I expected which left the rest of my days left for cramming for finals. I normally don’t cram but silly me figured I had 3 days last week to study but ended up working all 3- not so smart! Anyhow, things are starting to slow down now (I think.)

Yesterday I had a luncheon at work and it was really nice! It was at the Convent (the place I work is run by the Nuns!) and was catered. I ended up having turkey, a shish kabob, lots of green beans, a roll, and a couple bites of cake (wasn’t that great- I told you I’m picky with desserts!). The only thing I passed on was salad, mashed potatoes and gravy, and stuffing because I’m not a fan of any of those. The people are funny at work though- they all tell me I’m super tiny and one asked if I “exercised” like walking. It’s so funny how I don’t look like I lift when I’m in normal clothes! Just wait ’till they see me flex. Ha!!

My newest baby bicep photo..had to show you all!

Speaking of lifting, I’m only working out 5 days a week now- and purely weights. 2 days off used to scare me but now I really need it. And I’ve increased my calories and my weight has actually stayed the same! Crazy! Oh, and I did clapping push ups again today for the first time in months and am proud to see I exceeded 10!

On the food front, I’ve been eating the. exact. same. meals day in and day out these past couple weeks because I haven’t had any time to cook or bake at all! Today I got a little break though so I decided to make some savory bread for once!

Makes 8 slices @ 90 calories, 5.5 grams protein, 1 net carb, 6.5 grams fat

(Modified from this recipe)

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup ground flaxseed
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 3 eggs (separated)
  • 1/2 cup water <-you might use a little less
  • 1/4 cup pure pumpkin
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • Pinch of psyllium (optional, but I added a bit too much water!)
  • Herb & Garlic seasoning (use whatever seasoning you want)
  • 2 packets stevia <-doesn’t make it sweet, but brings out the taste

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375. Spray a loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Beat egg whites until foamy. Then beat in egg yolks, water, and pumpkin.
  3. Mix in the rest of the ingredients.
  4. Pour into loaf pan.
  5. Bake about 45 minutes or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.

Enjoy!
