I posted this yesterday, but it got lost in the sauce.

Thought you all might like to have a read of the article and the subsequent comments

This is from a site that analyzes stock "teasers" from folks that publish investment newsletters. It's a good site, totally off topic from here, but once in a while they'll stumble into uncharted territory (for them). The author had to write a follow up for clarification based on the number of comments.

General Discussion / The Wal-Mart Factor
« on: November 11, 2013, 02:17:29 PM »
I live in Oklahoma where we have a pretty hefty contingency of "large" people. I believe it's one of the fattest states in the union. Walking into a Wal-Mart over the last year or so really brings home the radical changes in my (our) way of eating. One, the shear volume of items that won't be going into my cart, and will be going in to others. Aisle after aisle of trash that used to be staples. I can't afford grass fed meats, so I make do with what I can as others have stated here. I occasionally by chicken there. Produce is my go-to aisle in any grocery store. Meat is the second. The rest of the time in the grocery store I just feel like I am going for a walk. Standing in line waiting to check out is another eye opener. You look at the cart. You look at the person pushing the cart. Back at the cart again. Look away in horror. Just rolling through the store and observing the folks is almost a supplement of its own. Kind of a past, present, future reflection kind of thing. It is therapeutic in a way. I guess it does sound kind of elitist, that we are better than those folks. We're not better, but our eating choices are. It's not hard to pick one of us out at Wal-Mart. Check the cart and pants size.

Wheat Free Recipes / Banana Bread

This is quite tasty. We make them in a large muffin tin. I believe it makes 8 muffins. It's hard to believe your not cheating. I wrap them individually in plastic wrap and freeze them in a ziplock. Pull one out as I get the urge for a treat, but usually cut it in half and then into slices. Hit it with the micro for a few seconds, then some butter. I tend to eat less in one sitting and still enjoy the moment!

Paleo Banana Bread
Prep time: 10 mins
Cook time: 60 mins
Total time:1 hour 10 mins
Serves: 8
  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees fahrenheit
  • Combine your bananas, eggs, and nut butter, and grass-fed butter in a blendtec, blender, food processor, or mixing bowl and mix well (if using a mixing bowl you need a good hand-mixer)
  • Once all of your ingredients are blended, add in your coconut flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, vanilla, and sea salt and mix well
  • Grease a 9x5 glass (see notes) loaf pan with a fat of your choice (I used grass-fed butter). If you use a metal pan it will probably bake in 35-40 minutes so start checking at 35 to ensure the middle stays moist
  • Pour in your batter and spread it evenly throughout
  • Place in your preheated oven and bake for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean
  • Remove from oven and flip your bread out onto a cooling rack
  • Slice and serve
  • Cranberry Orange - Only use 3 tablespoons of butter. Add zest of one whole orange diced, juice of one whole orange, and1 cup dried cranberries or fresh if you want
  • Chocolate Blueberry - Add 1 cup of fresh blueberries and 1/2 cup of cocoa powder
  • Pumpkin Pecan - Reduce the almond butter to 1/4 cup and add 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree and 1 cup of roughly chopped pecan pieces
Notes: If you want to make these into muffins, use the same recipe and for mini muffins bake approximately 25 mins and normal size muffins 30-35 minutes.

Wheat Free Recipes / Chips and dip?

The American standard snack. All is not lost. Plain pork rinds with a little bit of cream cheese is a pretty tasty alternative. Dicing up some green onions/chives to mix in with the cream cheese works pretty well. For me, 3 or 4 of these about does the trick. 2 TBSP of cream cheese is 1g sugar and 1g carb. Not a big deal unless you're pounding them.

For those interested, here is a link that pretty much covers everything you want to know about ketosis. Very enlightening and ties in well with our eating style. There may be some useful information here for those that may be struggling with weight loss.

Introduce Yourself to the Wheat Free Forum / How did I miss this?

Sheesh. I go to the Wheat Belly blog pretty much daily looking for new articles/comments. I just happened to click on Boundless' name to see if there was a way to send an email and I was brought here. Good to be around like-minded folks.
Wheat-free since May, 2012. Grain-free and gluten free-free since October 2012. Went from 203 to 153 lbs. High blood pressure medicine (was 180/117) lisinopril and metoprolol- not any more. Severe sleep apnea- just a bad memory. Size 38 waist is now a 32. All is not perfect, however. I still smoke a pack a day and probably drink too much wine. But I don't drink beer anymore. It just doesn't feel right. It's like drinking a beach ball.
Looking forward to joining the conversation from time to time!
