Thank You Jan, I can not spend hours at the computer listening, but I also read fast.

That is why this forum is so important & thanks to all of you for keeping it sane.

Food Elements / Re: Flour substitution question
« on: October 12, 2014, 09:54:24 AM »
Lydr, gravy needs a fat to emulsify. Try melting 2 tbsp of Kerrygold butter in a saucepan. Add about 2 tbsp coconut flour. mix together & let cook a few minutes, this will help remove the flour flavor. Turn up the heat and whisk in the broth a bit at a time, when that bit is thick add more broth & keep whisking, repeat till you have enuf.

I make this gravy for DH & he does not know it's coconut & is a huge gravy fan. I think this ethod will be successful for you.

Hungry, fruit flies are a plague. Try pouring a bit of red wine or something sweet into a ramekin, cover with plastic wrap, secure with a rubber band & poke holes in top with a toothpick. They will go after the sweet stuff & can't get out. Good Luck.

« on: June 26, 2014, 10:15:03 AM »
I Mostly got rid of the nightshade family, (once & awhile a summer tomato) & it helped my arthritis swelling a lot.
I tried 3 types of magnesium and all caused leaky gut. Then I tried magnesium oil and found it very helpful. A little spray on my tummy after a shower & I am good to go. Also found it helpful for small aches, pains and bruises but best of all -  bug bites. Who knew!

Organics are hard to find & VERY expensive in my rural area but I can find Hormel Natural Choice Bacon, uncured with no preservatives, no sugar. We like it very much, $8.35/lb. Sometimes we just have to make the best choice from what is available. I do see a small improvement in organic items.

I received a Cuisinart Food Processor as a wedding present in the late 70's. Still using it & it has held up better than my 1st husband. My only complaint is they no longer make parts for it & one of the shredder blades broke making sauerkraut. That blade design is no longer used. The old cheese shredder blades do collect nubs of cheese under the disc but I never found it a problem as I just added to the rest of the cheese. This is my go to machine for everything, including grinding almonds for flour, although that takes a  long time. I know this machine will pass  away of old age soon so I would like to hear reviews on the new ones.

I have found that eliminating (99%) of the nightshade family, tomato, eggplant & peppers has helped my arthritis. Too bad 'cause I love them all. There is nothing like a fresh picked tomato, still warm from the sun.

Barbara, what herbs are you finding helpful, are you using as tea?

deanna, how it the humidity where you live? Michigan may not be warm here but in the winter it is very dry. We purchased a humidifier & run it at night in the bedroom, it helps. If you are congested try Breathe Rite strips, they help with mouth breathing.

Bella, I have never heard of a cholesterol test from a lab that did not instruct you to fast. I would bring this up to the Dr. & ask that you not be charged for retesting. The medical community needs to be held accountable. Retesting could put your mind at ease.

Delallo Marinara sauce is pretty good, 6g carbs/1/2 cup & it is in a glass jar, much better than a can. Dei Fratelli rustic cut tomatoes in light puree, tomatoes, tomatoe paste & salt - it comes in a waxed box.

Try inserting a small piece of fresh mozarella cheese in the meat ball b4 baking, seal well - yumm!

Vibe, chronic pain is THE largest medical issue facing the US today, larger than Heart, Cancer & Diabetes together!  My heart goes out to you. WOE has diminished my pain to the point that I don't need meds, but if I did, I would take. With severe pain you can accomplish nothing and yet you have been such a contributor to this forum, Imagine what you can be if you are not in constant pain. Hang in there!

I have to agree, just started with coconut amino & they are very good. A good way to find recipes is search Paleo + your meat + stir fry.

Welcome ldyrd4311. Absolutely use product names - call 'em good - good & bad. How else would we know! I try not to be out of home made bone broth but have found Kitchen Basics to be not bad & I give it to my barn Kitty.

The soap does work, there is a bar on my DH's side of the bed & now I can sleep without being shaken awake by kicking legs. Also it's interesting to note that when he naps on the couch (which does not have a bar of soap tucked in ) he kicks & shakes often complaining of sore legs. I think the couch will get it's own bar.

« on: January 08, 2014, 07:26:10 AM »
Onions are a huge flavor enhancer, using one onion in a recipe will not hurt the carb level significantly once the recipe is portioned out per serving.  I wonder if onion powder carries the same carb load?

As long as Monsanto is in business the definition of non GMO will be muddled.

Last night I saw an interesting story on the National News. While I would be that LAST person to advocate for Cheerio's, I have got to give them some credit. They have announced - due to pressure from consumers - they will no longer be using GMO products!

This is a step in the right direction & we can hope that our purchasing power with this WOE can bring some changes.

Free range mice??? Then why the heck were they heading for my pantry ( which last year was filled with wheat).

Initially I got Kitty Kitty to trust me by using tuna fish in oil - irresistable. After a bit I was able to pass my hand underneath & find out it was a male. Hate to be sexist but that made me feel a lot better as I don't want a litter of kittens. May try a discount spay from the shelter in the spring.

By BFF also has a barn cat who got a snootful of porcupine needles, some straight through his tongue, little guy would have died because he could not eat. She captured him & brought him to the vet. They could not get near enuf to give anesthesia so they gassed him & he was nutered at the same time. Because they were so impressed with her big heart they only charged for the spay & at a discount. That cat loves her big time now & that;s one of the reasons she is my BFF. She also tries to cook WF for me.

Speaking of how good WOE is for our pets too, We have a Barn Cat, named Kitty Kitty. We are both allergic to cat dander so he can't come in the house. He moved into our barn last fall & suddenly all our nasty critters were gone! No more moles, voles & this is the first year I have not been plagued with mice. I wanted Kitty Kitty to make it through the very cold winter, so I started feeding him, Bone Broth, bacon fat & left overs. Every day he greets me @ the barn door for his lunch & now has a nice jelly belly to get him through the winter. In spring I'll keep up the bone broth but let him eat critters.

Food Elements / Coconut Aminos
« on: December 31, 2013, 06:54:02 AM »
Does anyone have experience with Coconut Aminos? I went looking for a BBQ recipe that is not as heavily tomato as the WB recipe and found one that does use tomato paste but is mostly bone broth  with spices and has a more syrupy texture that I was looking for. Coconut aminos were used & from what I can tell it is a soy sauce substitute. If I try this recipe I'll report & post.

Dh & I have been taking Symbiotics Colostrum Plus for about 3 weeks, 1pill 2x/day, to increase soon. We notice a big difference, easier & more solid elimination, more energy, sinus a bit better, hand swelling reduced. Does the addition of the spray really increase effectiveness? We both suffer from sinus problems. DH wondered if the estrogen would be harmful to him & I had no answer other than it did not hurt him when it came from his mamma.

Last week I made the Pepperoni rollup  published on Dr. Davis blog & in new cookbook. Used marinara dipping sauce. Pretty good but we both decided the bread would be a better pizza dough. It was easier to make than the original pizza dough recipe.
