Recipe time.

This low carbohydrate, healthy fat (#LCHF) pecan pie has

  • No grains, refined or whole
  • No added sugar or syrups
  • No vegatable oils

Which gives it the magical (well, science supported) power of not raising blood glucose or stimulating insulin secretion. I was not wearing a continuous glucose monitor for this particular pie, however previous pies have had this same predictable non-response.

This pie is not vegetarian or vegan, it contains beef gelatin. However, in the link below there is an alternative recipe that uses sugar free maple syrup. I prefer to minimize use of artificial ingredients whenever possible. While the pie is no plant-based, it would be considered grass-based since the plants in it are pre-digested by ruminants.

This was my test pie. I may wear a CGM for pie 2.0 just to confirm. If there are any questions about this, feel free to post in the comments.
