For a healthy 2017: Low carb bread


Uff, the time between Christmas and New Year’s day is the most intense time of the year in terms of food and drinks. It is wonderful to come together with the family and enjoy all the good food.

We saw a nice variety of different flavors on our plates this year: From traditional Czech cuisine with karp and potato salad over venison goulash to raclette.

On New Year’s day the fridge looked rather empty and a wish for something not so heavy made me create this low carb bread recipe. You can enjoy it while still warm with salad or cottage cheese. You can also eat it like a normal bread with sausage and cheese. The texture is very smooth and soft, therefore you should consume the bread within 2-3 days and store it in the fridge.
