I have been on a low-carb/low sugar diet for almost a year, and although I miss pizza most of all, I have managed to satisfy other cravings with semi-worthwhile substitutes. Recently I made a kind of buffalo chicken dish.
I made it with cannellini beans, which anyone who follows a low-carb diet knows, is not a good choice, but they were in my pantry and they are a good option for my budget. They are filling, and if I watch what else I eat, they work with my new lifestyle choices.
Some people will ask me if I am doing Keto…I reply..”No, that’s crazy, there is no alcohol on keto”. At my age I am not after the fast weight loss, it doesn’t happen fast at this age. I am after sustainable. I am going to have a glass of Rosé, one way or another. I might as well have it without the guilt.
If I hit my 50 pound weight loss at my one year anniversary (which is the first week of May) I plan on celebrating with pizza.
In the mean time I am astounded (as one who is a self-proclaimed, carb addicted being) at the delicious low-carb dishes I have enjoyed the last year.
