    These programs seriously annoy me. They make sugar look like an essential item of good food and cooking. I'd love to see cake baking where there is no icing (zero, zilch) and no added sugar; just fruit and other natural ingredients which keep the GI and carbs low. Dream on....

    We will know that sugar is 'out' when someone produces a tv program that promotes eating without it...

    But then they will just tip sweeteners in, instead. :spitoutdummy:

    But who am I trying to kid? It won't happen in my lifetime, will it?

    Especially if I eat cake ;)

    If you want sugar in your cake, the best thing you can do is turn it into alcohol first and then pour it all over.

    Just posted in another post about a cook book I bought. Hemsley and Hemsley, worth the money but I always buy stuff when its come down in price. Loads of low carb recipes and lots of goodies, raspberry pastries, cake, brownies, all made with almond flour or coconut flour. The girls are British. They also have a web site with recipes, well worth a look.

    i just want a biscuit - that isn't made out of ground almonds, which then falls apart.

    i'd like them to try and make a cake out of ground almonds with healthy icing . however a belgium tesco chocolate eclair is about 10 carbs i admit i did have one and my daughter ate the other 3 but that was when we got back of holiday - i always crave something nice when i return. Turkish deserts are yuck

    I've just been grocery shopping online and have been getting increasingly peeved at how high carb all desserts are. I'm tired of eating just fruit and I suppose boredom is rather dangerous...

    However Walls do an ice cream that is just 8g carb for two scoops. That might be nice for an occasional treat. Has anyone else found any gems?

    Chocolate eclairs and most fresh cream cakes not too bad carb wise! Mind you just inject a bit more insulin if I fancy a treat every now and then!

    Check out the low carb section. Hundreds of great puds, cakes and deserts - with minimal blood glucose impact.

    It's labelled a vegetarian thread, but most cakes are vegetarian ;)
