Last week, I posted a new recipe that gives a great option to people who are keen to include more flaxseed in their diet. Because I know that many of you are probably following a carbohydrate-reduced (or “carb savvy” is what I prefer!) approach for medical purposes, I’m keen to give my clients and readers as detailed an outline of my recipes as possible.
This is why I have started presenting my recipes by embedding them directly from Nutritics, a brilliant software that helps me develop and adjust my recipes and also meal plans. We used it to develop, calculate and tweak every single recipe in our best-selling book “The Ketogenic Kitchen”. Nutritics provides a most useful overview of the macronutrient content with both a pie chart and also a food label. I particularly like the nuanced information on saturated fat, fibre and other key aspects that many other software tools don’t provide. Most importantly, it is also a handy tool to keep an eye on micronutrients. Additionally, you can see the split between Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids and also the glycaemic load of a recipe.
The glycaemic load is a measure that considers the amount of carbohydrates in a portion of food together with how quickly it is expected to increase blood sugar levels. It is therefore an interesting gauge of what to expect and really insightful for people who are keen to improve their metabolic health.
Please have a look at this short video, which will clarify how to get the most out of the recipes I post! And yes, I’m looking into eliminating the “scrolling” element without overloading my web pages with pdf documents 😉
