Have you Been Told By Your Doctor That You Will Be Type Two Diabetic for the Rest of Your Life?

*Weight loss immediately after diagnosis is the most effective way to send type 2 diabetes into remission, new research has found.

Patients who shed 10 per cent or more of their body weight in the first five years have the highest chance of setting themselves on the road to recovery, a study by the University of Cambridge found.

Obesity is the biggest risk factor for the development of type 2 diabetes and the disease affects around 400 million people worldwide.

It puts sufferers at risk of heart disease, stroke, blindness and amputations, but can be managed long term through lifestyle changes and medication.

It is also possible for sufferers to return their blood glucose levels to normal through diet, exercise and weight loss.

Low Carb Blueberry Muffins (Keto/Paleo)

Posted on September 25 by

I have been experimenting with different recipes and have come up with one that I hope you enjoy as much as I do!

(BTW.... I have never been a baker, but I feel zero guilt when I eat one of these!)

Ingredients:

2 cups blanched almond flour
1/2 cup coconut flour
1/2 cup of granulated monk fruit (granulated xylitol or stevia)
1 1/2 tsp gluten free baking powder
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/3 cup butter (measure sold, then melt)
1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk
3 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 pint blueberries

Instructions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line muffin pan with 12 muffin liners.

2. In a large bowl, stir together the flours, sweetener, baking powder and sea salt.

3. Mix in melted butter, almond milk, eggs and vanilla. Then fold in blueberries.

4. Evenly fill the 12 muffin cups and bake for 25 minutes.

I chose to use a bit of the coconut flour as it adds more sweetness to the muffin, but I did not like it when I used 100% coconut flour. You can also use coconut oil instead of butter, but it is a bit more "greasy".

1 muffin: 210 calories, 3 grams of net carbs, 7 grams of protein and 19 grams of fat.
