Let’s Celebrate REAL Food + a Recipe for Chicken Livers Wrapped in Bacon

 

I find recipe inspiration in a lot of places – recipe books, Pinterest, magazines, random ideas, cooking shows, etc. and I often try out these new recipes, like one does…

Something that’s been really bugging me lately is that a lot of ‘low carb’ recipes out there are just trying to emulate the regular {high carb / processed} versions of certain foods.

Which is fine, except that it never tastes like the original food…

So why are we so obsessed with trying to recreate these foods we’re trying to eliminate from our diets? {That’s if you’re trying to live a healthy, low carb, real food lifestyle…}

There really are very few baked treats out there that’s low carb AND actually tastes good. {And I’m guilty of making these too, which often just ends up in a whole lot of wasted expensive ingredients…}
{Although my brownies are totally delish 😉 }

Rather celebrate the good, quality, real and nutrient dense whole foods that DO form part of this healthy lifestyle.
{Like cheesecake, if you’re looking for a FAB low carb dessert!}

I’m not saying don’t ever try and make anything low carb, but let’s just move away from horrible, time- and money-wasting imitation foods.

Doughnuts, cake, bread – these are just some of the things that will  never taste like the originals. You might find an ‘OK’ version – but why settle for ‘OK’ when you can make something more true to it’s form and SO much better?!

Ah – rant over, I feel much better now, thank you!

Here’s my recipe for a fab chicken liver hot salad, using pure, whole ingredients – and did I mention bacon?!
