This is the conundrum when it comes to low carb eating. Making almost EVERYTHING from scratch is a real drag. Most people, (myself included sometimes ) would rather crack open a bag of chips ahoy than to make cookies from scratch. It's the single biggest reason for cheating and lack of success for me. I know you can make double batches and freeze a lot of things, but it still takes a LOT of time to do this diet right- whole foods, no processed junk, etc. A lot of kitchen time and a lot of clean-up time and sometimes I just don't want to do it.
