Health Benefits of 90-Second Bread Ingredients
No need to give up bread on keto. This keto-friendly bread has a number of health benefits thanks to the good-for-you ingredients.
#1: Pastured Eggs for a Better Brain
Did you know that even paleo and gluten-free bread can spike your blood sugar and lead to a massive energy crash?
That’s because most of the bread you find on grocery store shelves is high in carbohydrates and low in brain-boosting fats. They certainly have no place in a low-carb diet.
Instead, you’ll make this super easy keto bread with almond flour, coconut flour, and pastured eggs — all ingredients that will keep your blood sugar steady and help banish brain fog.
Eggs are well-known for their protein content, but that’s not their only claim to fame. In fact, eggs are a powerhouse of nutrition when it comes to brain food.
They are a great source of choline, an essential nutrient for brain function and development[*].
Choline also supports focus and learning[*], making it a crucial compound for cognitive performance, no matter your age.
But that’s not all — eggs are also rich in a variety of B vitamins, including folate, biotin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, and B12. B vitamins are crucial for brain health and development throughout your life[*].
Research indicates a link between B12 deficiency and cognitive impairment in the elderly[*]. You can help slow down brain aging with more B vitamin-rich foods like eggs.
Speaking of keeping your brain young, another ingredient in many keto recipes is vitamin E-rich almond flour. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that is being studied for its beneficial effects on cognition in people with Alzheimer’s disease[*][*].
#2: Nutrients for Better Eye Health
Digital devices, artificial lighting, and even the sun — your eyes are constantly challenged. Although these sources of blue light may seem unavoidable, there’s hope yet.
Lutein and zeaxanthin are phytochemicals that give fruits and vegetables their yellow and orange hues. You can also find them in abundance in egg yolks.
Lutein and zeaxanthin act as powerful antioxidants that help protect your body against free radicals. Too many free radicals can trigger cell damage that leads to diseases like cancer and age-related cognitive decline.
But lutein and zeaxanthin are especially good for your eyes [*].
Eggs are also incredibly bioavailable, so you won’t just get a decent dose of antioxidants, you’ll get a dose that your body can absorb and use[*].
Consuming one egg a day raises your levels of lutein and zeaxanthin[*]. And that’s just one component of 90-second bread.
#3: A Stronger Immune System
If you’re constantly tired or always coming down with a cold, your immune system might need a boost.
Luckily, you don’t have to spend hundreds of dollars on supplements when you’ve got nutrient-dense foods at the ready.
Coconut is one of the best foods for immune health.
Coconut is also rich in medium chain triglycerides (MCTs), which are being studied for potential cancer-fighting properties[*].
Almonds are another immune-boosting food thanks to their manganese content. Manganese supports the production of a powerful antioxidant called SOD (superoxide dismutase) that protects the energy production centers in your cells, aka mitochondria[*].
Mitochondria help turn the food you eat into energy your body uses to function. When your mitochondria aren’t working optimally, you’ll be tired, slow, and less likely to fight off viruses and bugs.
The vitamin E in almonds has also been shown to support immune health, especially in the elderly[*][*]. This potent antioxidant works to protect and increase communication between your cells, and boost immune health by fighting off bacteria and viruses[*].
Almond flour is also an excellent source of dietary fiber, protein, and monounsaturated fats while being low in carbohydrates.
