While carbs do give you energy, not every carb is created equal. Processed carbs, such as white bread, pasta, and pretzels have been processed during food production resulting in a low nutrient food. Americans tend to over consume processed carbs. These carbs have a negative effect on the body such as pre-diabetes, weight gain, and undesirable blood lipid levels.

Since learning these facts about carbs, I have been trying to eat less of these “processed” carbs. This is a little hard to because I love eating pasta and bread.  I couldn’t believe myself when I saw a low carb cloud bread recipe while I was browsing Pinterest the other day. When I looked into it further, I was shocked that it was so easy to make, and had only a few ingredients.

I decided to put my own spin on the recipe using only ingredients that I had on hand in my dorm fridge. The result was a super simple cloud bread recipe that only requires 3 ingredients! It’s also gluten free and diabetic friendly as well!
