Probeer Inè Reynierse se LKHV-resepte vir wortelkoek, blomkoolkasserol en varkrib met bedruipsous

Low carb is lekkerLow Carb is LekkerInè Reynierse se jongste kookboek, Low carb is lekker, is propvol smullekker resepte vir enigeen wat graag ‘n laekoolhidraat-hoëvet-leefstyl wil navolg.

Karla Janse van Vuuren het met Reynierse gesels oor haar boek, wat ook in Engels beskikbaar is as Low Carb is Lekker.

Reynierse vertel meer oor die grootste uitdagings van ‘n LKHV-leefstyl, asook die voordele en negatiewe aspekte van die dieet. Sy deel ook ‘n heerlike resep vir wortelkoek en gee raad aan diegene wat skrikkerig is vir ‘n LKHV-dieet.

Lees die artikel en probeer Reynierse se wortelkoekresep:

Beplan jy nog ’n boek en is daar enige resep wat jy nog graag wil decarb?

Vir seker! Ek gaan nie rus voordat ek nie ’n ordentlike vetkoek-, pizza- of koeksisterresep het nie.

Wortelkoek

Met ’n laekoolhidraat-leefstyl is ons geneig om die gebruik van groente wat onder die grond groei te beperk omdat hulle so ’n hoë koolhidraatinhoud het. Dié resep is aangepas om ’n klein bietjie wortel baie ver te rek terwyl jy steeds die wortel in elke happie proe, sonder al die koolhidrate wat daarmee saamkom.

Lewer 16 mediumgroot snye met 5 g koolhidrate per sny.

Is dit moontlik om ‘n heerlike Sondagmiddagmaal voor te berei sonder om koolhidrate te gebruik? Reynierse dink beslis so: “My ideale Sondagmaal sal beslis heerlike gebraaide varkrib met biltong-sampioenblomkoolkasserol insluit.”

Probeer die resepte vir varkrib met bedruipsous en blomkoolkasserol:

Varkrib met bedruipsous

​Jy het nodig:

Vir die rokerige braaibedruipsous:

4 e klapperolie

1 ui, fyngekap

2 e fyngedrukte knoffel

1 t gedroogde gemengde kruie

2 t gerookte sout (gewone sout sal ook werk)

2 e fyn koljander

Hoe maak jy tradisionele boerekos sonder gebakte aartappels? Inè Reynierse vertel (Potgooi)

Low carb is lekkerLow Carb is LekkerInè Reynierse het onlangs by Susan Botha in die GrootFM-ateljee gekuier om te gesels oor haar boek, Low carb is lekker, ook in Engels beskikbaar as Low Carb is Lekker.

Reynierse vertel dat graan en verwerkte suikers inflammasie in die liggaam veroorsaak, wat op sy beurt die hoofoorsaak is van ‘n “hele lang lys” siektes en kwale, onder meer diabetes of breinsiektes soos aandagafleibaarheid-hiperaktwiteitsindroom (ADHD).

“Jou brein het weer ‘n kans om te kan dink en te funksioneer,” sê sy oor wat gebeur wanneer jy begin om koolhidrate en verwerkte kosse uit jou dieet te sny.

Botha wil weet: “Hoe maak jy tradisionele boerekos, en nou praat ek skaapboud, sonder gebakte aartappels? Wat vervang jy?”

Luister na die potgooi vir Reynierse se antwoord:
