About being GFCF and doing low carb.

I am fairly confident I have this whole GFCF thing sorted out. I understand what I can and can't eat. It really isn't that complicated. I just have to be aware and eating out is difficult.

It does mean that I have to take it into account when planning my weight-loss regime. I am going back to low carb next grocery day. My only concern is I can't think of one single sweet-type treat that I can make that is low carb but also gluten free and dairy free. I am kind of stuck on this one. After induction, fruits are allowed, so I could make smoothies with berries and soy milk. But I can't think of one single induction sweet/dessert type thing that is gluten free and soy free.

I have a little something sweet every day. Before going gfcf, I would make mock danishes as my treat or little cheesecake type desserts with splenda. But now I am at a loss. I will do more research to see what I can come up with.

I am open to any suggestions you may have.

Just a fyi.
Many lipsticks and postage stamps have gluten in them.

You can also go to
t get inof on gluten-free, preservative free, dye free, all kinds of free!

Good luck: it's a whole other world out there

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

We make smoothie with non-sweetened almond milk. Would that help? There are also some flourless cakes (try googling for recipes) that use nut-meal (or ground nuts) as the "flour", I am not sure how lowcarb those are, but it might be a start on your sweet treat quest!

Oh those are great ideas! Thanks so much. Smoothies sound great and I would be willing to bet there are cakes I can have too.

I had no idea about the lipstick and postage stamps. thanks for the heads up.

I am off to visit now.

I've successfully combined low-carb and gluten-free for nearly a year, due to celiac disease. I have quite a few recipes for l-c, g-f sweets. My favorite snack cake recipes use a combination of whey protein powder and ground flaxseeds for the "flour." Some also use almond flour. Since I don't do dairy-free, a lot of our favorites are cream cheese based. But there are a lot of good l-c sweets recipes that fit into a g-f diet.

I'd be happy to share my "variety snack cakes" recipe. Just let me know if you'd like it.

I would love your "variety snack cakes" recipe! Thanks so much for offering it to me.

I won't be home tomorrow, but I should be able to send it on Tuesday or Wednesday. I've enjoyed some of your recipes and it'll be a pleasure to be able to pay you back.

Good luck with low carb. It's been pretty successful for me.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
