….. with toasted pecans.
Since starting down the healthier-eating-staying-away-from-carbs-road, I have moved over to the banting way of doing things. I’ve bought the Real Meal Revolution book of which Tim Noakes is a co-writer.
So, on and off I’d bake/make things – staying away from obvious carbs and sugar. Cheesy bread with almond flour, lemon cheesecake fat bombs, chocolate mouse with cocoa and chia seeds, cream cheese clouds, etc. Most of the recipies I found from the different Facebook groups (and there’s hundreds!).
So far so good. Not really shredding of the kg’s but I seem to be losing some cm’s.
This past weekend I roasted some pecans in the oven (160-190 degrees Celsius for 10 minutes) and then blitzed them to get them fine. I was on my way to make pecan butter. My own. My own Pecan Butter.
When roasted, they become darker and smell completely different.
Little did I know that I was digging my own grave. I nibbled on some of the roasted pecans while waiting for them to cool off. Oh My Soul!!!! They are divine! (
I wanted to grab the whole tray and find a hiding place in which I could devour the lot of them!)
Be sure you blitz them in a closed food processor or in a deep container as those little bits of escaping pecans fly all over the place. I stuck with the stick blender in a deep container and squished the roasted pecans into submission.
I think I died and went to heaven. I can not stop eating this stuff!
PS: I ordered the pecans from TheBantingLifestyle @ R200/kg and man, was their delivery quick!!
