Wheat Free Recipes / Avocado Truffles with a kick
« on: March 29, 2018, 05:43:24 PM »
https://wholenewmom.com/recipes/chocolate-avocado-truffles-chocolate-truffles-recipe-truffle-recipe/




These are so, so, so good!  I have made them several times now, and each time they come out beautiful and scrumptious.  Easy and quick to make, and she also explains how to freeze avocado, if you have some that are ripe and you can't eat them all, as I had happen this week.  They have been on sale and I couldn't resist.  Freezing them is quite easy, they won't look as beautiful as fresh, but for making guacamole or something sweet like this recipe, they are perfect.


Enjoy!

Wheat Free Recipes / Nut and Seed Bread
« on: February 21, 2018, 05:41:38 PM »
This is amazing, simply amazing, if you like German type Pumpernickel bread and miss it.  I sure do sometimes, and have made this several times now.  I can't eat much of it, it's very filling.  I slice it very thin and freeze a few slices for later consumption.

Wheat Free Recipes / Best Keto Pecan Cookies
« on: February 20, 2018, 03:09:12 PM »
These are simply amazing!  I bought Carolyn's new cookbook for my daughter for Christmas and seriously, every recipe is easy and tastes great.  I made these a few times during the holidays, and it's my favorite keto cookie of all the ones I've tried, and there have been many.  A stand by for me!

Wheat Free Recipes / Best Keto Poundcake
« on: February 20, 2018, 03:06:33 PM »
I don't remember if I left this recipe here before, but in any case, if you haven't tried it, you simply must.  It is dense and moist, easy to make and very low carb.  I don't make it often, but it is a great quick breakfast, or even lunch to take on the road.  We make it when we go to the beach, or go on other road trips.  Hope you enjoy!

Wheat Free Recipes / Leberkaes - German Meatloaf
« on: October 02, 2016, 07:56:30 AM »
This one is definitely an acquired taste.  I was lamenting to my daughter the other day, that since the German butcher in our small town closed shop, I hadn't really had any Leberkaes.  We looked online, and there is a place, Germandeli.com where you can order it frozen, but then I looked around the internet for recipes, and decided it sounds easy enough to give it a try.  Mine is in the oven right now, baking.  I can't wait!

Has anyone else been watching the speakers?  It's free for 48 hours, they have several speakers daily.  I haven't had much time to watch, sadly but this morning I caught Ivor Cummings, and the other day I took some time for Maria Emmerich.  I missed Dr. Jason Fung on day 1, but I see that they will have an encore day, bringing back the most popular, and we can vote for our favorites, to bring them back.  I'm counting on you all to bring back Dr. Fung, lol here's a link, in case you haven't come across the info yet.   Very helpful info, even if you already know it, it's nice to hear the speakers sum it up and lets face it, that Ivor is just nice to look at, period.  8)

Our family loves brunch.  We often get together for brunch on the weekend, instead of dinner now.  I've been collecting good recipes and always look for new ideas. Came across this interesting blog and thought I'd share, because I care   ;D

http://www.sugarfreemom.com/recipes/crock-pot-grain-free-low-carb-sugar-free-granola/


I have a bunch of nuts and seeds on hand, and will try my hand at this super easy sounding recipe for granola.  It's something we all miss, that crunchy topping for yoghurt, or just a quick handful for snack.  I love crockpot recipes right now - it's just too hot to turn oven on for any length of time. 


I made her crockpot meatloaf too, and everyone loved it.  Think I posted that recipe, but will check to make sure, it's really super, and I'm making one for Mom today, with the tomato topping.  YUM!!

http://www.lowcarbmaven.com/blueberry-lime-chia-seed-jam/


Happened to come across this recipe this morning, and just got some nice organic limes the other day and have some chia seeds I need to use up, so going to try this one.  And make the scones too, DD has been having more carb cravings, and I will start making her more baked goods for the time being.  I hope it works out well, and will report back, once I've tried it, I think it looks yummy.  :)

I was asking in another group, about a good vitamin B supplement, and one of the recommendations was desiccated liver in pill form.  This would have to be ok for prenatal vitamin supplement, and not too big a pill, if possible.  I saw that Rita recommended this to someone a while back, and was wondering if you have a specific one you like, or if anyone here takes them and has good experience.  Thanks for any input!

I received an email offer to download a sample copy of his book, and will definitely be ordering it.  Here is the link, but if it doesn't work for you (it might be email specific, not sure) just go to Lowcarbzen.com and see if they will send you a link.  Amazing recipes and pictures, and his amazing story, to boot!

https://lowcarbrn.wordpress.com/2016/07/09/long-term-type-2-achieves-normal-bg-in-3-days/


We all here know this. I just don't think it can be said enough, reminders are good.



Reading articles like this one, give me motivation to do better.  I was reading Dr. Jason Fung blog, and it seems that you can also reset your immune system with a 3 day fast.  Could it really be this easy?  Yes, it really is.  Our bodies are so grateful for anything healthy we do for them.  While it might seem hard being bombarded with all the toxins around us, including fast food and GMO and poisons in water and the air, even the smallest change for the better, will be appreciated and help turn disease around.

Wheat Free Recipes / Almond Milk
« on: July 14, 2016, 05:23:08 AM »
I finally tried this recipe, or a similar one that I found on Facebook and now can't find it in print.  It is delicious!  I mean, really tasty and creamy and delicious I didn't make much, just in case, but now have the almonds that aren't really like almond flour, but more like meal, since I left the brown skin on before blending.


I intend to make the Chocolate Chip cookies that she has on her blog as well.  Will let you know how they turn out, when I do.


http://minimalistbaker.com/how-to-make-almond-milk/


I forgot to mention that I made some changes, this blogger is not sugar free, so of course I didn't use the dates for sweetening, but I used about 3 to 4 drops of the SweetLeaf Vanilla Creme Stevia, and it was perfect, along with a pinch of Real Salt.  A felt healthy drinking this "milk" and will be making some for the grandson now and then.  It would make an excellent substitute for coffee creamer, if making it thicker, by cutting down on the water.

Wheat Free Recipes / Frozen Fruit Pops - too pretty not to share
« on: June 28, 2016, 05:44:06 AM »
For those hot Summer days, I am thinking of making some of these for the grandson, and I might swipe one just for fun.  I realize that fruit is not really something we should indulge in too heavily, but I think once in a blue moon, it might be a treat to enjoy, esp. in season.  I will rely heavily on berries, but might get a kiwi and peach, just for the beautiful colors.


http://healthyindulgences.net/2016/06/real-food-rainbow-popsicles-no-sugar-added-made-with-natural-sugar-free-sweeteners-stevia-erythritol/


Her recipes are truly delicious, but she is not completely wheat belly compliant, as in she uses beans, corn, and other non wheat grains at times.  So check out the recipes in details, but whatever I've made from her arsenal of recipes, has turned out fabulous.  I love the Chocolate Cake with a secret so, so yum!!

Food Elements / Activated Charcoal
« on: June 20, 2016, 05:59:59 AM »
Does anyone use activated charcoal?  I have not so far, but have been investigating misc. natural detox methods, not a bad thing in this day and age.  Had this in email and thought I'd ask before investing.


http://www.bulletproof.com/coconut-charcoal-capsules-90-ct?sailthru_vars?[charcoal_clicks]=true


The best detox method for me has been extra Vitamin C (ascoribic acid form) and 1/4 tsp sea salt in 4 oz warm water, followed by 8 oz cold filtered water. 


What methods of detox do you employ, if any?

Wheat Free Recipes / Low Carb Naan Bread - Diet Doctor recipe
« on: June 18, 2016, 02:40:15 PM »
http://www.dietdoctor.com/recipes/low-carb-naan-bread-with-melted-garlic-butter


I have been craving Naan bread, not sure why, but just want some.  With Lentil soup, lol ;)


But seriously it would make such a lovely meal, along with perhaps a tossed green salad,  with a creamy Italian dressing.  Yum.  Lentils are to be eaten with caution, I think 1/2 cup is the max, but good prebiotic, so definitely will be on my menu sometimes soon.


Ingredients

  • teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups (500 ml) boiling water
  • Oil for frying
  • Flaked salt

Garlic butter
  • 4 oz. (100 g) butter
  • 12 garlic cloves, freshly squeezed
Instructions

Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl. Add oil and then boiling water and stir thoroughly.

  • Allow to rise for five minutes. The dough will turn firm fairly quickly, but stay flexible. It should resemble the consistency of Play-Doh. If you find its too runny then add more psyllium husk until it feels right. The amount needed may vary depending on what brand of husk or coconut flour you use.
  • Divide into 6 or 8 pieces and form into balls that you flatten with your hands directly on parchment paper or on the kitchen counter.
  • Fry carefully in oil in a frying pan until they turn a nice color and have risen enough.
  • Heat the oven to 140F (70C) and keep the bread warm while you make more.
  • Melt the butter and stir in the freshly squeezed garlic. Apply the melted butter on the bread pieces using a brush and sprinkle flaked salt on top.
  • Pour the rest of the garlic butter in a bowl and dip pieces of bread in it.

General Discussion / Losing The Weight For Good
« on: June 17, 2016, 05:50:40 AM »
http://greatist.com/live/best-way-to-lose-weight-for-good


One of the biggest problems for most weight loss folks is losing those last 10 lbs, or maintaining the loss.  With our way of eating, that isn't as much of a problem, but when I was younger, I lost quickly via starvation, and set up a yoyo system of weight loss, with a goal in mind - a wedding, a trip to Europe, a class reunion some goal, that gave me incentive, and after which I let go again.  Now, losing slowly and not letting stalls unhinge the "diet" is so much more rewarding.  Feeling good while we lose weight is certainly very motivating, and I read many stories of folks who follow this woe without the weight loss on the scale, but hang in because of all the improvements in health.


Anyway, a lightweight article, with a deep message and reminder for me.

Wheat Free Recipes / Keto chocolate coconut bars/bites
« on: June 17, 2016, 05:11:17 AM »
These look super yummy to me, if you like chocolate and coconut together, and who wouldn't ;)  I would make them into bite sized portions, and stick one almond in each, for a mock Mounds bite!


http://thenourishedcaveman.com/coconut-chcocolate-bars-low-carb-snacks/


The link has terrific pictures of the process.  If you don't like opening links, here's a copy and paste or recipe.



Ingredients1 cup unsweetened, shredded coconut


InstructionsMix shredded coconut with coconut cream,1/2 of the vanilla extract and packet of stevia and blend well with a spatula or a spoon
  • Place the shredded coconut mixture on a small cookie sheet lined with parchment paper
  • Shape it into a flat rectangle about 4 inches by 6 inches and 1 inch thick (measurements may vary) You can aid yourself with kitchen wrap to accomplish this.
  • Place in the freezer for 2 hours, until frozen solid
  • Remove from the freezer and cut into 5 bars
  • In the meantime you will prepare the chocolate coating:
  • Melt coconut oil in a small sauce pan until liquified
  • Add cocoa powder remaining stevia and vanilla extract to the coconut oil
  • Mix well on low heat for about 2 minutes, until all ingredients are well blended
  • Let cool to room temperature, but still liquid
  • Now dip the bars in the cocoa mixture, and turn to all sides to coat evenly. It helps if the bars are frozen solid so they won't break.
  • Place bars back on the cookie sheet
  • When all bars are all coated put in the refrigerator to harden.
  • The bars can be kept in the fridge for harder consistency or at room temperature for softer.
  • Cacao will melt if kept at a temperature too high.
  • OPTION 2
  • If you want your chocolate coating to stay solid at room temperature use cocoa butter instead of coconut oil.
  • Proceed exactly in the same way as using the coconut oil.



Notes
IMPORTANT:The amount of stevia indicated in the recipe is only for the particular brand of stevia I used. If you are using a different kind of stevia my recommendation is to start with a very small amount and taste test until you reach the right amount of sweetness without making it bitter and over sweet.

Wheat Free Recipes / Super Easy Chicken Enchiladas
« on: June 17, 2016, 04:39:33 AM »
http://www.ketofam.com/2016/06/17/chicken-enchiladas/
I love this kind of recipe, quick, easy, tasty.  There is a recipe for lasagna, also using deli chicken slices instead of noodles, I posted a while ago.  Maria Emmerich has that one on her website, I think it's called protein noodles lasagna.  Enjoy!



[/size][/color]What you need:[/font]
[/size][/color]1 lb thick sliced deli chicken (we either get Boars Head Chipotle Chicken or the Sriracha Chicken from BJs)[/font]
[/size][/color]12 oz shredded cheddar cheese[/font]
[/size][/color]1 can enchilada sauce (you really do not need the whole can just until you feel youve coated the pan evenly.[/font]
[/size][/color]What to do:[/font]
[/size][/color]Sprinkle a generous amount of cheese into each slice of chicken and roll it, just like a tortilla[/font]
[/size][/color]Place rolled chicken enchiladas into a well greased baking dish (I use an 88 metal pan)[/font]
[/size][/color]When the pan is full of enchiladas, pour the can of sauce over the top.[/font]
[/size][/color]Then, sprinkle remaining cheese over the top.[/font]
[/size][/color]Bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes (until cheese is slightly browned and edges of the enchiladas are slightly crisp).[/font]
[/size][/color]Serve and ENJOY![/font]

Wheat Free Recipes / Chocolate Chip Cookies - Maria Emmerich
« on: May 27, 2016, 07:01:07 AM »
I made these last night, and have to say, they are fabulous!  I made them half the size, and resulted in 45 nice sized cookies.  The recipe is super easy, I just whipped them up by hand, and baked them on parchment paper for 15 minutes at 350 - I like a dark cookie.  Very important to let them COOL completely on the baking sheet, they are very crumbly when hot.  I put them in the fridge over night, and just packed them up for daughter and family to take along on their trip.  Always good to have something fast and easy, and yummy - to make in a jiffy, if you need a treat.

What I think is interesting, the fact that they have to know all these medications and their side effects and interactions, yet so many mistakes are made and seemingly no attention paid to the toxic side effects, this just confirms my decision to seek out a holistic doctor for lab tests and healthy information.

Off Topic Discussions / Vaxxed - the Movie
« on: April 23, 2016, 01:29:36 PM »
Well, this has been a controversial topic in the media lately.  I hope everyone saw the amazing interview with Robert De Niro and his partner on ABC.  I was just checking out some more details on this movie, which of course I am looking forward to viewing.  It turns out the topic is not anti-vaccination info, but a whistle blower who has proof that the CDC has been eliminating important documents that would be detrimental to their profit taking.  I have been viewing some interviews with the movie makers on youtube, and find this guy particularly easy to listen to - do take a look if you care to find out what's going on behind our backs.  "The pharmaceutical lobby is the most powerful one in our country" as if we didn't now!!!

Wheat Free Recipes / Crunchy Sesame Crackers - Sesame Crispbread
« on: April 22, 2016, 04:05:55 PM »
I took some time this morning, to try this recipe I've had on my mind for a while.  It's from the Diet Doctor site, and very easy to make.  It took me a little while to gather the ingredients, but they are good to use for other upcoming recipes, like keto tortillas and flat bread.   Very easy, fast, delicious!  Crispiest cracker/bread I've ever made while on low carb.


Here's some pictures I took, first one just out of the oven,  second one cut up and ready to eat - GS couldn't wait, lol!



http://smg.photobucket.com/user/barbarak/slideshow/Crunchy%20Sesame%20Crackers

Some changes I made:  I cut them smaller than the recipe calls for, I made 45 crackers, instead of the bread slice size.  Also, I didn't feel like grating cheese, so I chopped it up and you can see the little chunks of cheese.  I might try a plain sesame with parmesan cheese cracker next time. 


http://www.dietdoctor.com/recipes/lchf-breakfast-by-fanny-4-sesame-crispbread


Ingredients

30 servings

  • 1 cups (300 ml) sesame seeds
  • cup (100 ml) sunflower seeds
  • 2 oz. (60 g) grated cheese
  • 1 tablespoon psyllium-seed husk
  • cup (100 ml) water
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon salt



Instructions


Mix together all ingredients (grate the cheese coarsely), and spread out on parchment paper on a baking sheet.
  • Sprinkle sea salt on top.
  • Set the oven to 340F (170C) for 20 minutes.
  • Carefully cut the crackers into the desired form.
  • Lower the heat to 280F (140C) and let sit for another 40 minutes.
  • Remove the crispbread and make sure its dry all all the way through. I usually let it stay in the oven with the door slightly open until the oven is cool.

http://alldayidreamaboutfood.com/2014/05/low-carb-chocolate-peanut-butter-dirt-cake.html


Wow, this looks good!  Haven't tried it, but it's on the menu soon, for sure.  Will share a pic if I do make it ... don't want to make it sound like I bake treats all the time, really only every few months, but when something interesting comes along, I like to save it, and share it. ;)


I wanted to share this new product.  There is a sweetener company from Norway, that I came across on Facebook, called Sukrin.   http://sukrinusa.com  They have some amazing products, like brown sugar and delicious tasting syrups.  I use them in moderation, but they really fill a need for those of us who occasional bake or make a treat.  Right now, you can use a coupon code FRIENDS to purchase from the website.  It's also sold on other sites, like amazon.  The coupon would not work there of course.  Shop around for the best price.

Wheat Free Recipes / Rye-like Rolls
« on: March 27, 2016, 07:42:03 AM »
I have been making these little rolls for years now, they are my go-to when I need just a bite of something rye-like - that was my favorite bread, and since it doesn't have any of the addictive grains, it doesn't lead to over eating.  One recipe makes 12 tiny rolls, and I cut them into little slices and eat with butter or liver wurst, or use them to serve little appetizers for company.  Everyone accepts them readily as "normal bread" and I am glad to have these as a special treat.


The original recipe is from Maria Emmerich, she makes the sub rolls, or panini, but I enjoy this size for portion control, and also the psyllium powder can make them a little gummy inside, when not baked completely, so the smaller size allows them to bake through, and dry out.  I keep them in a brown paper bag, or sometimes no bad, on the counter.  They get eaten so fast, I have never had to freeze them, but I think they would freeze well.  I share them with my daughter, the grandson loves them!


Rye-like Rolls - makes 12


1/2 cup coconut flour
5 Tbsp psyllium husk powder
2 tsp baking powder
salt, spices as desired (I love rosemary, caraway seed, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds etc.)
4 large eggs
1 cup of boiling water.

Mix dry well, add eggs in and mix well, add boiling water. Mix and let stand a minute.
Have oven preheated to 350, parchment paper on the baking sheet.
With large spoon, dole out 12 heaps and shape them into rolls.
I like sprinkling with sesame seeds. 
Bake 40 minutes and let cool slightly before eating.
They keep well in the fridge, open so as not to get soggy.

I uploaded my pictures to photo bucket, and it should show as a slide show not sure it will work, please let me know if you can see them!

My daughter would like to start taking this vitamin, but we are unsure which brand is good.  Do any of you take this supplement?  I did a search and came across some posts that make me think some do.  Maybe if Bob is around, he could check some out via his Test Lab site much obliged for any recommendations!

I thought this might help some of the newbies, or even those of us who like a reminder once in a while, how to go very low carb don't let the word "ketogenic" put you off carbs add up quickly, and it's always good to know how to cut back to a very low level, when weight loss is the goal.  Or even "just health" - more and more we are hearing that ketones are the key to good health and a longer life!

General Discussion / Fish Oil
« on: December 28, 2015, 08:05:55 AM »
I tried doing a search on this topic, but couldn't find much.  I'm sure I've read threads that touched on it though, and have been researching a bit, regarding brand and amount to take.  Dr. Davis has lots of info on this blog of course, and I found references that indicate the amount should be 3000 to 3600 mg a day, broken into 3 pills per day.  that would be 1000 to 1200 mg per pill.  I found this brand on amazon, and it has good reviews and is relatively affordable, compared to others. 


What do you think?  http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00E9ZFO9O?psc=1#Ask


What brands do you take?  How many pills a day?

General Discussion / Ordering Wheatfree Products online
« on: December 12, 2015, 07:33:10 AM »
I am researching some online deals, such as Thrive Market, Wheatfree Market Foods, and also the deal from Ruled.Me - they send out a package every month, it's around $35 per - and as far as I can tell, always a surprise as far as content, but it's all Keto and wheat free etc. Has anyone ordered from one of these, and if so, could you give a quick review?  I am thinking of giving something like this to SIL for Christmas, or as an alternate, might just go fill up a basket at Whole Foods or similar store, with goodies.


Grateful for any and all input!

Food Elements / Peanut Flour
« on: November 07, 2015, 06:29:05 AM »
Someone asked me about this flour, but I have to admit, I have never used it.  Checked online and found it readily available.  Seems Dr. Davis uses it in some of his baking recipes in his books, I had not come across those, but I'm not a fan of peanuts or peanut butter, so probably missed them.


Here are a few sources

Amazon has it, different brands.  Honeyville.com (looks like they finally dropped the "grains" in their name) doesn't seem to carry it, they do have something called peanut butter powder, not sure it's the same thing.


Has anyone used this flour in baking, and do you like it?  How does it compare to almond or coconut flour>?

This does it - no more pork for us, unless I find a local farmer who sells the meat directly.  Makes me angry what they are doing to our food!!!

General Discussion / Organic Foods in Supermarkets
« on: November 01, 2015, 08:20:39 AM »
I was just making myself a cup of tea, and got my organic lemons out to squeeze some juice in the tea.  These lemons are from one of the super markets in my area, largest one and very reputable, Harris Teeter, they were bought by Kroger earlier in the year.


These lemons are large, have very few blemishes on the skin, almost no seeds, and just lovely.  It made me wonder - can I trust that they are organize?  And what does that actually mean?  Are they free from pesticides and sprays, is the rind ok to eat? 


I have been buying mostly organic lately, when it's available, and didn't question the fact that these times were indeed organic as advertised by the stickers and labels.  But I wonder lately, can we trust them to be?  Is there anyway to actually tell?


I just read online that a lot of salmon and other seafood that is advertised as fresh ocean caught is indeed, farmed.  Then of course, the other issue with ocean caught, is it actually any healthier?

Did you see this one?  My first thought after reading was, wonder if the good bacteria also transfer?  Wouldn't that be great, no fecal transfer necessary not that there's anything wrong with that .  ;D

This is a tasty, easy, quick Keto meal, if you just need a change from the routine.  I really like the Ruled Me recipes, this guy knows his stuff.  My daughter made these last night, and they were delicious!  She buys the Applegate or Oscar Mayer Select not ideal food, but nice once in a while.  GS loved them!

Not sure right now how I came across this blog, but it has some fascinating interviews and videos to peruse.  I've listened to Dr. Joseph Kraft explain how everyone who has heart disease, also has diabetes. 


The one linked is my favorite so far.  Fascinating, truly.


Will be spending some time here, for sure.
