Eva Chung rescues those struggling with a lack of convenience in a low-carb diet. Most portable convenience foods, such as sandwiches, require bread, and most packaged breads contain a high carbohydrate content. Chung takes out the mystery and hard labor of making your own low-carb alternative with her “cloud bread” tutorial.
“I really do like this recipe,” Chung says. “It does taste a little different from bread – it definitely isn’t bread – but it is a really good replacement, so I wanted to share it with you guys.” Chung discovered the “cloud bread” after feeling limited when switching over to her own low-carbohydrate diet.
The cloud bread requires only a few common ingredients and basic cooking skills. The recipe calls for three eggs – separated into yolks and whites, cream cheese, baking powder or cream of tartar and a packet of low-calorie sweetener.
After mixing the egg yolks, sweetener and cream cheese together, Chung beats the whites and baking powder together with an electric mixer until the egg whites form stiff peaks. She then gently folds the yolk mixture into the whipped egg whites.
She then spoons the loosely folded mixture into rounds on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and places it in an oven pre-heated to 300 degrees.
While Chung advises that the “cloud bread” should reach its desired light brown color in approximately 30 minutes, she advises keeping an eye on the bread, as it tends to burn easily. After cooling on a rack, the bread is ready to eat. However, if you desire a chewier texture, the video blogger suggests refrigerating your “cloud bread” creation.
According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, carbohydrates themselves are not bad. It’s simply which carbohydrates one consumes. “It’s important to choose carbohydrates wisely,” the department states on its Health Facts site. “Your best carbohydrate-containing foods are nutrient-packed foods in several of the basic food groups: fruits, vegetables, grains, and milk and milk products.”
