This one is for cLow Carbohydrate, Healthy Fat Pumpkin Muffins With Cream Cheese Filling (I know, I was not generous enough with the cream cheese filling, life is always a rehearsal…)
Like the other recipes, the features that make this one more compatible with metabolic health are:
- No added sugar
- No grains (whole or refined)
- No added industrial bean/seed vegetable oils
Since it’s estimated that only 12% of Americans are in a metabolically healthy state (see: Just Read: Prevalence of Optimal Metabolic Health in American Adults: National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey 2009–2016 (Are you in the 12%? here’s how I am), we can all use assistance getting there…

Why I’m doing this
I never envisioned having a recipes section on my blog. However, I keep finding healthy recipe blogs that have recipes that are anything but healthy, and possibly quite harmful to people with insulin resistance (55% of the population of California at this point and getting worse). Like many of the things I do, I do them because it’s the way it has to be.
I’m also practicing my food photography, so a few more images below.
Questions or comments are welcomed in the comments, of course 🙂 .

But not before enjoying these Low Carbohydrate, Healthy Fat Pumpkin Muffins with Cream Cheese Filling (which I know I need to be more generous with in the next batch, old habits …. ) . There’s no added sugar, no vegetable oils, no grains (refined or whole), only real 🥛 fat . In comparison, a Dunkin Donuts (breakfast) banana chocolate chip muffin has 11 teaspoons of sugar, nearly equivalent to a (dessert) Starbucks vanilla buttercream cupcake with 8 teaspoons of sugar. Ouch. . Recipe will be posted at the usual place https://recipes.tedeytan.com . As expected, no rise in blood glucose levels following ingestion of these muffins. h/t @ChristinaKerby . #RealFood #LCHF #LCHFdiet #KetogenicDiet #MetabolicHealth #DiabetesReversal #DiabetesPrevention #DontFearFat #ContinuousGlucoseMonitor #DataOverDogma #Food #FoodPhotography #SonyA6500 #SonyMirrorless #DC #instaDC #DCStatehood #GayMuffins #instaGay #GaysWhoMakeMuffins #EmbraceCuriosity #FutureStartsHere #ThisCenturyBestCentury #No1Experiment #Geek #Muffins #Yes2Dairy #Yes2Meat 😋📸🍪
