Everything Bagels: Low Carb, Keto, Gluten Free & Grain Free

One of the biggest challenges when changing your way of eating is giving up the things you love. For me, that was carbs. I was a carb addict (still am). I believe that it is in-part contributed to by my hypoglycemia that I’ve struggled with since I was a child. If my sugar was getting low, I would instantly grab something containing carbs to level myself out. My go-to? Bagels. Everything bagels to be exact. I would eat them toasted with cream cheese. Better yet, topped with red sauce, mozzarella cheese, and pepperoni to make mini pizzas. (don’t judge me- lol). 

A Different Way Of Eating

Months ago I decided to make some major dietary changes in an effort to reduce (or remove) health issues I was dealing with. My options were to either change some of my eating habits or take a bag of prescription pills every day. 

The first thing I eliminated from my diet were the sweets. We all know how bad (and addictive) sugar can be. Unfortunately, at that time I did not give up all of the hidden sugars. There are many in bread, sauces, gravy, and more- sugar is everywhere. 

The next to go were my coveted carbs. This one was a toughie. Honestly, I didn’t even know many recipes that didn’t include at least one form of carbs. I mean what homesteader doesn’t love a fresh-baked loaf of bread right out the oven, am I right? 
Cooking without carbs was a huge learning curve, and I’m still learning. 

You Don’t Have To Give Up The Things You Love

Whenever you change your way of eating (WOE), I think it is important to remember that you don’t have to give up the things you love. You just have to make some changes in order to love a healthier way to make them. Take these low carb bagels for instance. They are AH-MAZ-ING, no lie. But do they taste exactly like the store-bought ones? No. 
However, I went so long without anything that resembled bread with my new WOE, when I did finally make these low carb bagels, I honestly thought I heard angels singing in the distance.
