LCHF Family 012: When Are Treats OK? Released: August 31, 2017 Adam is back this episode to talk about when it's ok to have a treat when you're eating LCHF. One of the major changes most people have to internalize when they switch to low-carb, high-fat eating is to think of treats as treats, and not just something sweet. A treat is meant to be a rare occurrence. In our family, we have treats at immediate family members' birthdays, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and when we're traveling in a foreign land and want to try a local food. So, in theory, we have about a dozen or so treats throughout the year in the form of a food that is not usually considered LCHF compliant. That's what we do. What you do as a family will depend on your family. Have that conversation so that everyone is on board and the decision is made before you find yourself facing down a buffet table at an event. One of the ways we were able to convince Kai to agree to try LCHF was to agree to allow her one non-compliant food item per week. Considering the fact that she basically lived on cheese and pasta before switching to LCHF, this has been a huge improvement in her diet and knowing that she has that treat waiting for her helps her stay compliant the rest of the week. As parents, sometimes we have to meet our kids halfway. There are some treat-like things that you can make that are actually LCHF compliant, as long as you have them only occasionally. These include berries and cherries (either plain or with heavy cream), berry ice cream (listen to the episode for directions!), and fat bombs. I put together a list of fat bombs that require no sweeteners at all for our episode about school lunches. When you do decide to have a treat, maybe you want to make a cake for a family birthday or take a cheesecake to a potluck that you can have without totally diving into the sugar pond, check out the last section of Eat Happy. Anna's lemon cake is my favorite cake of all time. It's amazing! Remember: the goal is health. Save your treats for special occasions, not just because George at the office has a birthday or you happen to see a new candy bar at the check-out lane. Not only is it better for your health, but it makes the special times that much more special. Many thanks to Lee Rosevere at Free Music Archive for the music we use in the podcast!
