WHAT MAKES THIS DISH SPECIAL
Tens of thousands of people around the globe love vegan pancakes, especially French-style crepes. Crepe (or crêpe in French) is a delicious, sweet (there are savory variatons as well), fried comfort food that evokes childhood memories. The taste of grandmother’s thick & flavourful blackcurrant jam, melting in your mouth…
According to its definition, comfort food is a food type that evokes nostalgic or sentimental feelings, and usually it is high in carbs. So what makes this hazelnut-chocolate spread or blackcurrant jam-filled crepe a special, healthy comfort food? The fact that it is delivered right to your doorstep, so you don’t have to spend hours in the kitchen, bending over a saucepan, frying crepes. Moreover, thanks to modern-day food engineering methods, the carb content of this low carb, gluten free crepe is significantly reduced compared to other conventional pancakes.
This soft, flat and sweet snack contains naturally occurring sugars, so you don’t have to worry about added sugar intake either. Do you know what’s the main difference between pancake and crepe? Traditional pancake batter has a raising agent in it, but crepe batter doesn’t. Consequently, pancakes are fluffier, while crepes are falt. Moreover, crepes are usually larger in diameter.
ABOUT GLUTEN FREE DIET
A gluten-free diet is basically recommended for those with diagnosed gluten sensitivity, i.e. celiac disease. Gluten sensitivity is an immune response to the gluten consumed, which is a type of protein found mainly in wheat flour, rye and barley. If you are sensitive to gluten, the gluten you consume will trigger immune reactions in the small intestine. These reactions damage the wall of the small intestine over time and prevent the absorption of nutrients. A gluten free diet is the only solution for those struggling with gluten sensitivity. Most gluten is found in flavor enhancers, flavorings, and carbohydrate sources. A gluten free diet can have a beneficial effect on weight loss because it reduces the intake of flavor enhancers that otherwise contain a lot of sodium. Sodium binds water, so the body releases some amount, which can result in less body weight. And by reducing your carb and gluten intake, your calorie intake is reduced, which is one of the best ways to trigger weightloss.
ABOUT LOW CARB DIET
Low carb diet can help lower and normalize blood sugar levels. The most frequently mentioned benefits of a low carb diet are weight loss, reduced fat percentage, lower blood sugar, mental freshness and a more balanced digestive system. The good news is that this gluten free, low carb crepe perfectly fits into a low carb meal plan. One of the main principles of low carb diet is to avoid foods high in sugar and starch, such as bread, rice, pasta, potatoes, sweets, desserts and sugar. During a low carb diet, the body breaks down fats efficiently because the body’s glycogen stores are depleted, and energy is mostly covered from fat stores. Some say that low carb diet is often much more effective than other diets.
