Wheat Free Tips / Re: Mashed Cauliflower
« on: April 29, 2013, 05:30:49 AM »
Tried them last night.  I thought they were delicious.  DH still thought that they tasted just like cauliflower.   :P   However, he did like them better than the steamed cauliflower, so I'll be fixing them again.   :)

General Discussion / Re: Why are you on the Wheat Belly Diet? ( poll )

Thanks Deanna - I'll pass this on to him.  He's not 100% on board with this whole thing yet, though he's trying.  He hasn't read the book and rolls his eyes when I talk about some of the content.  However, he will do whatever he thinks will help me with my weight loss/healthy eating plan.  Honestly, he really has quite a big gut on him right now and could stand to follow the diet.  But, even with reading the book, I have many questions (I hope some will be answered here).  I cannot imagine trying to do this without reading it.


ie. today he did forgo a sandwich for lunch and had spaghetti and meatballs for lunch instead.   ???   Afterwards he asked if pasta had wheat in it.  ???  Seriously?  LOL!

Success Stories / Re: Reversing Type 2 Diabetes

What encouraging stories all of you have.  Yes - I think that this can be reversed as well with the right diet and exercise.   :)   You'd think that dr.'s treating diabetes would take note of the results of eliminating all wheat and get on the band wagon, right?

I need to lose weight.  I've done it successfully by eating high protein, low fat and low carbs, but with some assistance from appetite suppressants (which I prefer to not use). 


You'll be surprised how you won't need those appetite suppressants with this.  I never knew about the opiate side of wheat before wheat belly.


You're absolutely right - I have had no hunger at all since dropping the wheat.  Although I still have a protein bar for my breakfast and did cave and eat a cookie the first 2 days - that was more a mind thing than a hunger thing.  In the past, I would have never had only one cookie - they are always eaten in 2's.  LOL!  That in itself is a victory.  I could live on cookies.  Hubby thinks I'm brain-washed from reading the book, though he's supportive of whatever I want to do.  He will join me in trying the new foods, but won't give up his beer.  He says it's made from barley and not wheat.

I was out of town teaching and spent one night with a lady that was very health conscious and she told me about it.  I went home, found the blog and spent a couple days reading the blog and then ordered the book.  I'm just about finished with the book and have gone nearly wheat free since Thursday - I still have my protein bar for breakfast, but will probably give that up soon.  I know that there's wheat in a couple of my vitamins as well.  I still have to sort that all out.  I have been sleeping better since then - sleep has always been a problem for me.  Now, if I can get rid of the joint pain, I'll be thrilled.  Of course, I started this to lose weight.  LOL!


Would love to find a complete "list" of all the ingredients that are to be avoided - is wheat somehow disguised as other names?  Maybe the last couple chapters will deal with that.

Last night I made Pizza with Dr Davis' #1 Pizza Crust in his cookbook (the one with almond flour, flax meal, a little garbanzo flour and lots of ground up mozzarella in the crust).  He said it would be firm and easy to hold in your hand.  I was doubtful because I had tried several other similar non-wheat crust recipes and they all crumbled at least some (but were tasty).  This one is amazing!!!  You can slice it up and pick it up and eat it.   I added chopped raw spinach, chopped onions, fresh chopped basil over sauce and mozzarella.   It was a little thick - kind of like foccacia.   I think next time I will add a little more garlic and onion powder to the crust dough for more flavor.  Also I recommend spreading the dough quite thin.  His recipe made one thick crust pan of pizza about 10x16.  I am going to try a larger pan next time and making the crust thinner.  This one is a keeper, though.  - A


I tried this crust on Friday night and would agree with you - while it's not really like wheat pizza crust, it was definitely good.  I will also add more seasoning to the pizza crust next time as well as spread it thinner.  It was definitely VERY filling.  I had 2 pieces (12" crust) and was stuffed.


I also tried the "healthified" quiche from mariablogspot.com on Thursday and it was delicious.  I sliced the leftover quiche into individual slices and have frozen for later.  I did warm up one piece in the microwave for breakfast yesterday and it warmed up nicely.  Also very filling. 


Today I plan to try out the mashed cauliflower - hope hubby goes for it!

Do the mashed cauliflower taste like cauliflower?  Just asking because I'd like to try them, but hubby isn't a huge fan of cauliflower.  If they tasted more like potatoes, he'd go for them and I'd never tell.  LOL!

I need to lose weight.  I've done it successfully by eating high protein, low fat and low carbs, but with some assistance from appetite suppressants (which I prefer to not use).  Two years later, I've gained back most of the weight.  This concept sounds like it makes sense to me.  I've ordered the book and can't wait to read it.  Of course, my kids will think I'm crazy!   ::)   Good thing they aren't living at home anymore!
