Wheat Free Recipes / Re: Caesar dressing

The trick is adding the oil, Teresa.  The end result should be a nice thick dressing...if you don't add the oil very slowly down the side, it could end up failing (a runny mess  :( )
Hope you enjoy it!

This is my fav recipe...
 
Caesar Salad Dressing

2 whole eggs
3 tsp. dry mustard
2 large cloves of garlic
1/2 tsp. of worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
2 tbsp. lemon juice
1 drop of tobasco
2 tbsp red wine vinegar (optional)
1 1/2 cups olive oil
 
Place above in blender on puree. ADD OIL LAST slowly pouring down the side (this is very important!). Can be kept in fridge for up to 2 weeks.

I made the tortillas yesterday and they were a flop  :'(   I had a heck of a time getting them rolled out  (that was probably just me) and they weren't at all pliable.  I would really like them to "work" so that I can serve my DH (who is "trying" this wheat-free thing) wraps in place of the sandwiches that he loves.
Help!  ;D

Congratulations Janet!  Oh...I'm so glad to hear that! 
I'm with Joan...it's a struggle to "re-wire" your brain...it's okay to eat fat!  I'm still afraid that it's going to backfire on me and all this additional fat is not going to work.... :'(
I agree, BCflyfisher, it is expensive in Canada (I live in BC as well)...I usually get it at Costco.

Hi everyone!
Just curious as to how the fat experiment is going.  Has anyone noticed any difference?  I started extra fat...mainly coconut oil and avocadoes...yesterday.  Sure fill me up and very tasty! :)

I  totally agree Joan...it's really hard to wrap your head around eating fat when you have conditioned yourself for years and years to eat low/no fat!  I just had half an avocado sliced up in my lunch salad...yikes! :D
 
Thanks, Jan, I will try eliminating fruit as well.  I don't normally eat much fruit other than perhaps some frozen blueberries in my morning smoothie but this past couple of weeks, I have gone back to eating much more.  I read the Paleo Diet and thought I might follow it and they allow lots of fruits but upon reflection, I think I will stick with WB and just eliminate dairy.

Thanks Rita.  I will check into the experiment...I was thinking I was eating too much fat.....such a guessing game!

Yes, thank you for introducing me to this forum.  It's nice to find that I'm not the only one experiencing this!  Oh, sometimes I feel like it is such a guessing game!  It's amazing the things that go through your mind...too much fat?...not enough fat?...too much exercise?....not enough exercise?. am I eating too much?...too little??....maybe it's this...maybe it's that....!! Sheesh!! >:(

Hi everyone!  I started my wheat free journey last August and other than a couple of "blips" along the way (Christmas and a 2 wk vacation to Mexico), I have been true to it.  I was amazed at how good I felt after just a matter of days after starting..."fog" lifted, energized, etc...and my appetite diminished (I used to be hungry ALL of the time).  I thought...this is awesome, I have finally found a way of eating that works for me...with the diminished appetite, I will finally loose the 25 lbs that has gradually crept up on me (AGAIN).  However, I have NOT lost my belly and am so frustrated.  I am constantly told "it is my age" (57) that is to blame...that is why my mid-section has grown and the only thing to get rid of it is major cardio.  I exercise regularly...resistance training (using rubber cords) every second day and walk/hike/bike often. So I am fit.  I take kelp tablets to support my thyroid (tests indicate all ok there). 
Two weeks ago, I decided to go dairy-free as well.  In addition to my resistance training, I have been powerwalking for 50 minutes every morning (approx. 4 miles) and often adding a bike ride or another walk in during the day.  Still no weight loss...the belly is still there!!!  I'm at a loss as to what to do.  It is so frustrating...especially when I read and hear of so many people who's pounds "just melt away" once they went wheat-free!
Any suggestions?
Thanks for "listening"!! :)
