Bread one of the hardest things to remove from any diet because of its soft texture and delicious taste. The good news is that you don’t worry about doing that. What we have for you are a number of bread recipes that fit the ketogenic diet and a grain-free diet.
What is the Keto Diet?
You’ve probably heard about the ketogenic (keto) diet many times by now and not only because it’s grown so much popularity, but it’s proven to work for people who have chosen to follow it. Essentially, the keto diet is a very low-carb, moderate protein, and high-fat diet.
The benefits of a ketogenic diet include weight loss, health, and performance because the body switches its fuel to run almost entirely on fat. Just imagine your body being a fat-burning machine. That’s what happens to the body when it’s under ketosis. If you want to know all the information down to the nitty-gritty, this article is pack-full of information about the keto diet.
For some people, this diet can be intimidating and they aren’t comfortable with (almost entirely) eliminating carbs in their diet, which, by the way, is okay. Instead, they opt for a grain-free diet.
What is A Grain-Free Diet?
A grain-free diet is different from the renowned gluten-free diet, which is plastered on almost every food label out there to give buyers the impression that it’s “healthy.” One significant difference is that some companies swap gluten for high carbohydrate alternatives and while these items get marketed as low in sugar, the high carb content in them raises your blood sugar anyway! It’s counterintuitive to the say the least.
If you want to know more about the differences between gluten-free vs. grain-free, then check out this article.
A grain-free diet is different such that it eliminates not only wheat products that contain gluten but also any gluten-free grains such as rice, corn, oats, and quinoa. As we mentioned above, it does not place restrictions on carbs like the ketogenic diet does and instead, they’re encouraged in moderation. Complex carbs like potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots, and pumpkins are allowed.
This diet is beneficial for people with celiac disease, gluten intolerance, or autoimmune conditions. So, if you find yourself struggling with any of those health issues, you can read about the grain-free diet in full here.
