Bumps on a Log

bump

I have taken the old school classic of “ants on a log” and upgraded it for a more adult snack replacing the sugary raisins with high protein raw almonds. Try using fresh churned raw peanut butter to avoid the extra sugars that are normally found in processed peanut butter. Raw peanut butter also has more protein and a little less carbs but store bought peanut butter is still a good choice if raw is unavailable. You could also use almond butter for a change of pace.

For one serving of “Bumps on a Log” (1 large stalk of celery with 2 tbsp of raw peanut, or almond butter and 8 raw almonds) there is about 4.4g of net carbs and 11.7g protein. So good!

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
