Flour
« on: September 11, 2016, 05:21:10 AM »
I know that all purpose flour is not a good idea. Which is a better substitute between coconut flour or almond flour?  Pros and cons for each one?

skb - Nothing in particular. It just seems to be in so many recipes, especially for coating chicken, etc.

You know what makes a great low carb breading??  Crushed pork rinds, add some pepper or what ever spices you want.  Works great for fish too.

I've never thought of using pork rinds, although I've seen it in recipes for meatloaf, but I haven't tried it yet.

Learn something new every day! Gram flour is new to me, and while not particularly low-carb (16g per ounce vs. 21g per ounce for all-purpose flour), it's lower than wheat flour & it's a legume instead of grain.

That David Mendosa guy is ga-ga about it. Works fine for me, if I have it in the am. Doesn't really shoot BG as much.

Thanks for the link skb, I hadn't heard of it before. That is one of the great things about this international group.  Sadly, it looks way too carby for me.
