Biscuits, or crackers as we call them in the U.S., aren’t usually considered to be a lung-healthy food. However, there’s one biscuit recipe offered by the Lung Health Institute that may actually help you improve your lung health.
Benefits of eating keto biscuits
At the Lung Health Institute, our health care team knows there are certain macronutrients that are better for lung health than others. For instance, we can tell you refined carbs are the worst macronutrient you can eat when you have a chronic lung disease. They aren’t great for lung patients because too many carbs are known to increase inflammation in the body, which may make it harder for you to breathe.
However, healthy fat and protein are two macronutrients that may have a more positive effect on your lung health. Healthy fats may have many benefits for lung patients, but the biggest benefit they offer is they can be used by your body as inflammation-fighting fuel. Protein, too, may help your body fight lung disease symptoms and help you feel full longer after a meal.
Even after you’re aware of the benefits of fat and protein, and the downside of processed carbs for lung health, many of us still crave carb-heavy foods like crackers. Fortunately, the health care team has come up with a keto biscuit recipe to help you satisfy your cracker craving, and this recipe may offer you benefits such as:
- A high dose of healthy fats to help fight inflammation
- A moderate serving of protein to help keep hunger at bay
- A lower amount of carbs than most store-bought crackers
- More helpful vitamins and minerals than most store-bought crackers
If you find yourself craving crackers to go with your soup, reach for some keto biscuits to satisfy your craving while potentially increasing your body’s ability to improve your lung health.
