Chances are if you have been perusing Pinterest lately you have seen this new trend of Cloud Bread. Cloud Bread is a super low carb, high protein alternative to “bread” that only takes a few staple ingredients and can be used for everything from sandwiches to muffins to snacks. Whether you are doing keto, LCHF, Atkins, or simply trying to stay Low-Carb, Cloud Bread is a great way for you to hit your macros!
From my first bite, I knew I was going to be hooked on Cloud Bread and have been trying different variations to keep it interesting. I think one key to having success with low carb dieting is to keep your recipes simple but delicious with enough variety that you do not get burnt out or bored. While I subscribe to the “food is fuel” mentality – we still need it to taste good!
Bruschetta is a great snack or appetizer for your special occasion. This Italian inspired “antipasto” or appetizer is full of fresh flavors and ingredients and can be enjoyed alone or as a starter to a great low carb meal.
