I started low carbing 4 years ago and specifically started this blog to help my fellow SA banters find low carb friendly products. It was a mission back then and most of my food had to be made from scratch. Fun at times, but when pressed for time it became very limiting.
The past year I’ve seen a boom in readily available low carb products (breads, cereal, biscuits) and even banting pizza bases at restaurants. The possibilities are endless and slowly but surely banting is becoming more of a lifestyle, rather than a thought consuming diet.
Going to a restaurant whilst banting can often be a stressful event – having to scroll down the menu sifting out the carbs. Then having to explain to your waiter “no toast, no potatoes, no sugar!”.
Imagine having a purely low carb menu, made with the best quality ingredients. Sit back, relax and let RCaffe do the banting for you. This coffee shop on 138 Long Street doesn’t just have a banting “option”, they have a varied and delectable banting menu PLUS dessert. I had one look at the menu and my mouth watered. So, I jumped into my car drove over and grabbed a takeaway low carb brownie. You can really taste the quality – moist and dense chocolate cake with a rich chocolate ganache icing. Better than I could ever bake. I’m going for the low carb blueberry cheesecake next time I’m in town!
With more restaurants jumping on the bantwagon (I just made up that word now, seriously impressed with myself), us low carbers can honor our health AND eat like kings :)
