If you’ve read Monday’s post, you’ve seen that Katelyn is just starting to find her way around her new LGIT lifestyle. Emily, on the other hand, is a pro. So much so, that she’s taken LGIT paleo. Check out what she has to say about her new recipe for Paleo Pumpkin Muffins:
I think the hardest thing about this diet is beginning it in the first place. You have to tell yourself that not only do you need it, but you have to convince that cynical side of you that you can do it in the first place. It’s a strange mindset to be in, and the first days of the diet will be difficult, there’s no question.
The b [...]
I was looking for silken tofu to use in a future recipe when I spotted these little babies in the refrigerator case. They’re called tofu shirataki noodles, and they are super low carb. Made of a blend of tofu and a fiber found in konnyaku potatoes–a root vegetable related to taro—these chewy noodles have only 3 grams of carb and [...]
I’ve wanted to share this recipe with you for months and months, but there were holidays that required special recipes and then there was vacation, and before I knew it, it was today. Luckily, I have a tendency to get hung up on things I love, so forgetting to share this little gem wasn’t even an option because I make it weekly!
Although I’v [...]
We’d like to introduce our newest contributor to the ENP blog, Katelyn! Katelyn is a BU student and a patient at ENP who recently decided to try the low-glycemic index treatment (LGIT) to help control her seizures. Check back often as she gives us her take on living the LGIT life with college complications.
Last summer we had an awesome intern by the name of Brianna who showed her love for ENP by creating a Pinterest page for us under her personal account. Now that we’re big kids, we’ve created a Pinterest board of own.
Not only will we be pinning all your favorite ENP content in one place, we’ll also let you know what other w [...]
A few years ago, I asked my family for these spoon-shaped measuring spoons that I started drooling over thanks to Nigella Lawson. Unfortunately, being my mother’s daughter for 20+ years didn’t make it any easier for her to figure out what I meant by “spoon-shaped measuring spoons.” So, instead of ripping open my dream spoons on Christmas Day [...]
I used to love Valentine’s Day. Like seriously, looooove it. Picking out valentines with cute little sayings. Meticulously sliding the heart shaped lollipops into the specially designed holders on the cards so they lined up just so. Deciding which cheesy phrase was most appropriate for which classmate. February 13th was this over-organized c [...]
No. I’m not suggesting that a bowl of dried cranberries is a must have–although I certainly don’t begrudge you your dried fruit. This post, however, is about the scale. I know, I know. One of the perks of LGIT is that it isn’t supposed to require a scale, but just because you don’t need one for this diet doesn’t mean you d [...]
