Cloud Bread Recipe

Do we really need bread or only our habits make us cling to our past? Let’s whip up this cloud bread as a requiem for a breaded life!

Cloud bread is the perfect embodiment of our failure of thinking out of the box when it comes to changing lifestyles. It’s the last-ditch effort of our carbs filled life to cling to its old self, trying to clamber back into our consciousness, taking over our life again.

What cloud bread really is?

When we are thinking about making cloud bread, we aren’t thinking about having the next best meal of our life but thinking about past best meals of our life and how we would be able to replicate them on our new diet.

A juicy hamburger with three sauces, a bit of pickles and slightly melting cheese on a sill sizzling patty creates an undeniable longing, especially if it is accompanied with sesame seed buns and double portions of French fries.

What burgers really are?

Interestingly if we think about hamburgers and more importantly images of hamburgers, the meat and the salad part is what really shines out on the pictures. The droplets of water on the freshly rinsed vegetables are reflecting not just the rays of sunshine but our hopes for healthy meals.

At least that is what green and vegetables do to our mind, and this is why many grocery stores keep fresh produce right next to the entrance. We shop more when we think that we bought something healthy already.

The juicy meat is still kicking of the last crackling sounds when placed on the bun that is the privilege of the barbecue parties or in some cases the overly set microwave ovens when we dare to visit poorly staffed restaurants off-peak times.

Do we need bread at all?

Yet, anyone who has ever tried a keto or any low carb diet and placed the same juicy meat with sugar free condiment onto a piece of salad or just onto a plain plate, dearly misses what truly makes our food undesirable.

Or at least it does when we are desperately hungry and who wouldn’t be after a 3 hours shopping session on a sunny Saturday morning or afternoon? Afterall those bags won’t carry themselves.

Once our blood sugar level drops a bit, our brain kicks into survival mode and prioritizes every known food according to its carbs content. Just try ordering a Big Mac meal and convince it that it can’t have the bun and the fries or the soda.

Can we survive without bread?

Good luck trying to substitute the buns with low carb alternatives like salad wrap, keto bun or cloud bread too. Not because these things are not good or add undesirable flavor or texture to our food but because they simply won’t provide the sugar rush to our meal that we accustomed to.

Carbs are the joy of our life. Once taken away, we are left with a plate shaped emptiness of uninteresting space, poking around on it with our fork, like we were not hungry at all, and the truth is that we probably aren’t.

Boredom, social interactions, stress or even our hunger can all be the igniting spark of habits that results of eating food we don’t need to. Once we establish a habit -which can be as quick as doing it once- it’s pretty hard to get rid of.

What does habits have to do with bread?

Just try to skip a meal on purpose and face the Ghrelin rush half an hour before the meal. Facing the ticking of the clock alone in those minutes is no feat for ordinary people. It needs a spirit of a warrior to face the hardship that our mind puts us through when we try to change long established habits.

It’s not impossible though. We can change our ways of doing things and even can wade off hunger for days. Just ask anyone who tried fasting for a couple of days. Once our body gets used to not eating at the usual time, it stops making the ghrelin hormone and we simple stop being hungry physically.

Unfortunately, it still leaves us with our long-established ceremony of having something to eat much like we are left with a bunch of beef patties in the fridge when suddenly gone keto or simply forgot at the butcher that we don’t do burgers anymore.

Can we un-bread our habits?

Habits die hard. Researches suggest, they never die actually but we can change them by avoiding its triggers or if that’s not possible then swapping its reward. In our specific case if we don’t want to have burgers with double French fries and Coke then simply skipping the shopping trip which triggers a fast food frenzy, is the best solution.

A bit less rewarding but still working option apart from, of course, looking for a healthy restaurant and ditch the burger forever or just go home and make one.

Think not of shame or repercussions while whipping up the cloud bread sodden with our sweet memories of old. Desperate times needs desperate measures, we have come so far already. We have passed several stages and overcome those trials, maybe not without ease but triumphantly. It would be a pity to give up now without a good fight.Cloud bread recipe - SunCakeMom
