The Best Flourless Chocolate Cake Recipe

The difference, as I discovered, comes in how they are combined and baked.

No-Sugar and No-Flour Diet Food List
If you’ve decided to try a sugar- and flour-free diet for health reasons or to lose weight, don’t despair.
You can still eat most foods; the only prohibited items are those that are processed and refined and usually come in a box or bag at the supermarket.
If you limit yourself to nutritious whole foods – fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, legumes, nuts, and seeds – your shopping cart will be full of good things to eat.
Check with your doctor or a dietitian to make sure a diet without added sugars or flours is right for you.
Although fruits and some vegetables provide natural sugar, they have no added sugar or flour and should be at the top of your diet list.
The sugar in products differs from added sugar because it is naturally occurring and is not inserted during the manufacturing process to “enhance” the flavor of a product.
Foods containing natural sugar provide necessary vitamins, minerals and fiber, which contribute to overall health.
These natural sugars also help to nourish the brain.
That said, some fruits have more natural sugars than others, such as dried fruits and many fruit juices.
In a sugar-free diet, you can choose fruits that contain the least amount of natural sugar, including avocados, rhubarb, lemons and limes, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, grapefruit, papayas, cantaloupe, nectarines, cantaloupe, peaches, cranberries, oranges, clementines, guavas, plums and pineapple.
They all have less than 10 grams of natural sugar per 100-gram serving.
Vegetables that contain the least amount of natural sugar include mushrooms, watercress, endive, spinach and other leafy vegetables, cauliflower, yam, chicory, green beans, potatoes, various types of cabbage, artichokes, asparagus, kale and chard, celery, broccoli, cucumber, Brussels sprouts and winter squash.
All have less than 2 grams of natural sugar in 100 grams.
Animal proteins do not contain sugar or flour, as long as they are bought plain and not prepared with sauces or breads.
For example, avoid frozen main dishes such as chicken nuggets or breaded fish sticks, and prepared meats such as barbecued chicken, crab cakes or flavored sausages.
Put in freshly cut chicken, turkey, fish, seafood, beef, pork and lamb from the grocery store’s meat section.
Prepare them at home with ingredients such as olive oil, fresh herbs, garlic or lemon, and avoid bottled seasonings such as ketchup, sauces and high-sugar dressings.
Eggs are a lean protein that doesn’t naturally contain sugar or flour, but stay away from prepared dishes such as quiche, which has a flour crust, or make quiche without a crust.
Dairy products such as milk and yogurt also contain protein along with lactose, a natural sugar.
Milk has about 12 grams of sugar per cup.
Legumes and beans provide both protein and carbohydrates, so they contain some natural sugar but absolutely no flour.
Avoid flavored beans, such as cooked beans, which have sugar, and dishes such as bean burgers, which may contain flour.
Choose dry or canned beans and legumes of all varieties.
Those with less natural sugar include black, white, kidney, pinto, pink, northern, lentils, and soy foods such as tofu and soy milk – all have less than 2 grams of sugar in 100 grams.
However, avoid flavored soy milk, such as vanilla or chocolate, which has added sugar.
In a sugar- and flour-free diet, nuts and seeds are a good snack, as they provide protein and fiber, the two nutrients most associated with satiety; in other words, they help fill you up so you eat less.
Adding more nuts and seeds to your diet can reduce the risk of heart disease and diabetes.
Almost all nuts, seeds, and their butters contain less than 10 grams of natural sugar per 100 grams, and have no flour.
Those with the least natural sugar are sesame seeds and paste, black or English nuts, sunflower seeds and paste, flax seeds, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, Brazil nuts, hazelnuts, pecans, almonds, macadamia nuts, and pistachios, at less than 5 grams per 100 grams.
When buying nuts, seeds and their butters, be sure to choose raw or dry roasted varieties with no added flavors such as honey or barbecue.
