#40 Chia seeds: fiber for an LCHF diet
At first glance, chia seeds appear to be a dubious addition to a low-carb diet, even if they are supposed to have been the super-food of the Aztecs. That’s because a single serving of chia seeds contains about 13 grams of carbohydrates. However, a closer examination of the food label reveals the chia seed’s saving grace: fiber.
#41 The great butter crisis of 2017
According to news reports, butter reserves in Europe have plummeted due to increased butter demand and declining milk production. In fact, as a CNBC article reports, between May 2016 and May 2017, European Union butter reserves dropped 99%.
Butter prices in Europe are doing what prices always do in response to scarcity, they’re climbing.
#42 Alcohol in an LCHF diet
Today’s topic — alcohol in a low-carb diet. Is it a good idea? Assuming that you’re an adult, that you’re not an alcoholic, and that you have no religious convictions or drug interactions to worry about, perhaps it is!
