Almond Flour: A standard serving of almond flour, 1 cup, contains 20 grams of carbohydrates, of which 10 g is dietary fibre, for a net of 10 g of carbohydrate per cup. This makes almond flour very desirable for use in cake and bread recipes by people on carbohydrate-restricted diets. Source: Wikipedia

*ALCAT Day 3 meaning: Following the 4 day Rotation Diet plan, individual foods are categorized by what seems to me as familial groupings. But I have yet to get more information on this. As it stands, I have been trying to manage my days consumption of food by eating foods that fall under each column. This is how I came to put these particular ingredients together for the above muffin recipe. There is a bit of a learning curve here for me and I will make updates as I go along.
