Have you tried making your own energy-balls yet, the superfood of 2017? If not, you should really give it a try. They’re not only super healthy, they’re also so easy to prepare and you can store them for up to a week in the fridge. That way you and your family can enjoy healthy snacks every day. In this energy-ball recipe, I used apricot and hazelnut in combination with lemon and honey, which created a fresh and nutty flavor.
Substituting bread can be one of the biggest challenges when going carb-free, especially for those who love savory food for breakfast. If you are from Germany, like I am, you are most likely used to eating bread or rolls (“Brötchen”) almost daily for breakfast, and often as well for dinner (“Brotzeit”). I’ve been thinking about how to create a delicious carb-free bread, and a few days ago, I finally gave it a try. Based on my Nutty Crackers, I added some moisture ingredients and carb-free flours, and out came a delicious healthy bread. My husband tried it this morning and he is as impressed as I am. This bread will help us a lot with our carb-free nutrition.
Inspired by the South African cook book The Real Meal Revolution, these crackers are a perfect carb-free alternative to wheat crackers as snacks or alongside an appetizer. You can enjoy them with any kind of dip or crème. I love to serve those crackers with tuna crème and some olives, which is always very well received by our guests. Combined with Champagne, it makes for a delightful welcome and starter.
