I cut way back on sugar and carbs at the end of last summer. I call it paleo-lite, but I am not crazy. I basically just don't eat too many grains or sugary things. I just eat more veggies and fruits with my meals instead of carb fillers (pasta, potatoes, bread, rice). I don't really miss them at all. With very little effort at all, I lost 25 pounds. It isn't a massive weight loss, but it makes running and exercising a lot less unpleasant. The carbs are a stupid feedback loop of cravings for me. If I eat them, all I want to eat is more of them. If I can avoid the first cookie, I won't want to eat the whole batch.

Those last sentences, are exactly it. And I love to see science backing me up. I'm figuring once-in-awhile I will see a piece of banana cream pie and figure it's worth the indulgence, but right now it doesn't even bother me.


I don't like cooking crusts with all whole wheat flour so I started using gluten free. It avoids white flour but isn't as grain-y, which isn't what I'm looking for in a crust. I usually use mostly quinoa flour with some brown rice flour mixed in. Doesn't roll out as well, but you can press it into the pan.

I haven't made a homemade crust in years. I still use Pillsbury and figure I will for the rare times I make a pie. I won't eat this one anyway.

I am, however, considering making bread. Just considering so far though.


So no Combos in July, then? ;)

Hi there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could get a captcha plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having difficulty finding one? Thanks a lot!..
