Still trying  to find a WB group I can participate in.  The current WB group doesn't have much participation, and kind of feel like I'm swimming alone!

Food Elements / Re: MCT Oil Powder vs Coconut Oil
« on: October 02, 2017, 09:04:43 AM »
So I can still use coconut oil in my cooking...not sure I'll get the MCT oil powder.  Doesn't seem like something I'd use.  Thanks for your comments!

Food Elements / MCT Oil Powder vs Coconut Oil
« on: October 01, 2017, 08:41:07 AM »
OK, I'm confused.  And by the way, I still check in here several times a week.  Hoping chat picks up...maybe this will help!  :)   I'm confused about the new MCT oil powder food element that seems all the rage.  How about if I ate just coconut oil with each meal, instead of spending extra money on the MCT oil powder?  I see Dr. Davis is now including this powder in his prebiotic shakes and in a recent muffin recipe he posted.  Any comments on which is the best thing to do?  The powder is kind of pricey, but I eat coconut oil every day, and could increase that if it would help.  Thanks to all!!

This is a bit off the topic, but finding a cream for my coffee that doesn't have an emulsifier is difficult!  Using coconut cream (organic) is very appealing.  My local co-op has small cans of organic coconut cream, I think,  but was wondering if this can be whipped up to dairy cream consistency, and perhaps frozen in ice cube trays?  Would be nice to use one in my coffee each day, along with my butter, which I refuse to give up, by the way!  :)   Struggling a little giving up my dairy cream.

Rita, this is clever!  I've never been much for radishes, but ran onto a recipe for hash browns made from radishes.  I'm going to try it!

Thanks, Barbara...I should've read the posts more closely.  Now I need to find some that's organic or from grass-fed cattle.  I could really use it for my eyelashes which never came back as thick as they were prior to the chemo stuff.  Thanks again!  I haven't been around much lately since I retired end of August and have been getting used to a  new schedule ... of doing not much!  At least for now.   :)

Guess I'm not sure what benefit plain gelatin would have versus bone broth?  It's tasteless...? :-\

This is so interesting about the bees!  And more interesting that they don't bother you when you're viewing all the different aspects of the hive, including all the bees!  Good job!  Have you determined yet what kind of bees you have?  Honey bees maybe or a blend thereof?

This looks wonderful!  However, the carb count for nutritional yeast is quite high.  On Calorie Count, I just entered 1 cup of the yeast to see what nutrition facts it would come up with, and 73.3 grams of carbs, plus 40.3 grams of fiber, which brings it down a little. Not sure I'd use it though.  I hear it tastes like Parmesan cheese...But this site rated it an A...!?

Well, I've just purchased another bottle (180 softgels) from Amazon of Nordic Naturals fish oil.  And twice a day, is that right?

Wheat Free Recipes / Re: Casseroles
« on: July 28, 2016, 11:06:32 AM »
I've used chopped cabbage and it's great!  I use mainly celery, red bell pepper, cabbage, green beans, sometimes cauliflower, but any veggie would work good.  You could even add peanuts or pecan pieces if you're feeling really bold!   :)   It's easy and quick to fix when I get home from work; then I can eat leftovers for lunch the next day and dinner that evening!

« on: July 26, 2016, 04:26:34 PM »
Deanna, I have a skillet meal I make a lot from boiled chicken (or ground beef or leftover meat/chicken of some kind).  Just saute it in coconut oil, add seasonings (usually includes cayenne pepper), and any chopped veggies I have in the crisper.  Sometimes I add coconut aminos or a little cream, plus salsa usually to give it more of a kick.  It goes far and I usually get several meals out of it.  Not sure why you couldn't make this into a casserole, adding cheese and some type of gratin on the top.  Yum...sounds good just thinking of it!

I thought about responding to that post yesterday, but wasn't sure what I would say, other than "What are you people thinking?"  Decided that would be rude, so I opted to not post at all!   :)   I still appreciate this site a lot, and check every day for new info posted.

General Discussion / Re: Sweeteners
« on: June 08, 2016, 04:16:49 PM »
I use Swerve with rhubarb.  Not too much, though. Just enough to sweeten it so my mouth doesn't pucker!  ;)   I love rhubarb, and rhubarb pie was one of my very favorites.  I haven't tried to make that, though I like rhubarb sauce drizzled over goat cheese.  Maybe a few chopped nuts on top, but it's great.  Swerve works good.  I also use Stevia liquid (kind with the eye dropper) and it works OK, too, as long as you don't use very much at a time.  The sweetener from the Wheat Free Market is wonderful, also.  I've given up Xylitol completely since it makes my mouth break out inside.  Even chewing gum or toothpaste with that in it.  Never realized all these years that that was the reason for my mouth sores.

I have a small spot in my new house for a garden, and am so excited!  Have tomatoes growing ready to set out, some onion sets, bush-type green beans, and perhaps a jalopeno plant or two, also.  Would love to start a rhubarb plant somewhere in my back yard, but haven't settled on a spot yet.  Soil seems dark and rich; even better for my little plants!!   :D

Remind me what the dosage is for iodine (as Dr. D recommends)?  I've been taking kelp but it's logical for me to see that perhaps this isn't the best way.

« on: March 29, 2016, 03:12:43 PM »
Thanks for these great explanations!  I've been adding a bit of cream to skillet meals lately, and that works to thicken, too.  But  I may get brave and try arrowroot powder.  And get that cookbook!  Thanks again!

Food Elements / Arrowroot Powder
« on: March 29, 2016, 10:59:22 AM »
I see that in Dr. D's new post, he's included arrowroot powder in the blueberry cheesecake, or at least approved its use by the Wheat Free market.  For some reason, I thought that ranked up there with potato starch and stuff like that.  Am I off track here?  I've never used it and am hesitant to.

Rita, I meant to add that even though I'm skeptical about eating honey myself, I would love to have some bees!  How's it working for you?  And this begs the haven't gotten stung yet, have you??   :)

BarbaraNC, that's great!  I'm recognizing now when I walk into the kitchen and start going thru the cupboards/refrigerator for something to eat (and not feeling hungry at all) that something else is going on!! (Emotionally, that is.)  WB has taught me SO MUCH about myself over the past few years.  I'm very grateful today.   ;)

Well, I received an e-mail from Sen. Crapo, R-ID, and he more or less said the USA has the "safest food supply in the world."  In other words, learn to live with it!  I was pretty upset after I'd read that.

Food Elements / Re: Raw Honey
« on: February 24, 2016, 10:06:12 AM »
I love honey, but am hesitant to use it in anything since it's a "sugar item" and I don't do well with sweet stuff.

Food Elements / Re: Artificial sweeteners
« on: February 05, 2016, 04:03:59 PM »
I've been trying to decide on a toothpaste that is fluoride and xylitol free...very hard!  But I found the "Jason" brand that has a very strong peppermint taste and is not sweetened with xylitol.  Xylitol causes sores in my mouth, so I avoid it, even sugar free gum that has it in.  And I am always afraid my cats will lick out the sink where I've spit the residue from brushing my teeth, before I can rise the sink!!  They like sweet stuff, and I know this is fatal for dogs, but can't be good for cats either.  I even threw my bag of xylitol sweetener out.  I've narrowed my sweetener selection to mostly stevia.  Even thinking about growing some stevia from seed this summer.

Bob, your chickens should feel lucky to have a nice caring dad like you!   ;)   I, too, look for farm eggs, although I don't know how the chickens live.  If the egg box states free range, then I feel better.

Have you all read Dr. Davis' open letter to Oprah on his blog?  It's wonderful!  Wouldn't it be great if Oprah switched plans in mid-stream?  From WW to WB?? She would be a great spokesperson for the WB way of living.

This is a great idea!  I have an aquarium, so haven't worried much about moisture in the air, but my sinuses seem dry a lot, too.  And we are NOT having a mild winter here in Idaho!  About 5 in. of snow yesterday, more like normal for this area, except for the past several years.  Anyway, I do have a small crockpot that I'll crank up tonight!  Thanks for the suggestion.

Off Topic Discussions / Re: Greenies for Cats
« on: December 14, 2015, 03:26:04 PM »
Greentree, aren't you concerned for the health of your cat's teeth?  Consistently eating canned food could mean cats would need teeth cleaning every so often, I would think.  I am concerned, however, about my two male cats' developing the urinary issue. I've had this happen in the past with another cat I had, and it was pretty miserable for him, especially since he was passing blood already.  I caught it in time to have him treated, though, and he lived a great 16  years.   A friend of mine makes food for her cats out of cooked chicken, and I don't know what else.  If mine would eat it, I'd probably do that.  Not sure it would go over very well with them though.

Food Elements / Re: Eating Meat 101
« on: December 14, 2015, 11:05:29 AM »
I seem to switch back and forth from meat to chicken and eggs.  Don't eat as much cheese as I used to in the WB beginning.  Adding crumbled sausage to my eggs is my recent favorite, even though I don't eat pork regularly.  I like fish (salmon mainly), too, once in awhile.  Seem to stick with grass-fed beef mainly.  Thinking I haven't had a chuck roast in the crock pot lately.  :)   Fixed some chicken legs dredged in almond flour and seasonings last night.  Very good!

I, too, have ordered from Wheatfree Market, the general baking mix many times, recently little packets of the muffin mix which I haven't tried yet.  Both hot sauces are great, and I agree on the granola...very good!  Good as a cereal, too.  Although I don't seem to have any leftover to do cereal, most often!  I haven't ordered from anywhere else, except Amazon for sweeteners.

Greentree, I'm glad you took those little furballs home with you!!  How cool!  I have three, and I'm pretty sure if I introduced them to Greenies, they'd love them.  But Greenies are now in the trash.  I'm slowly but surely moving toward grainfree food for them.  IAMS has a new grain free dry kibble that I'm trying.  They don't like the one by Science Diet.  Canned food is Beyond Nature, pate kind.  I have lysine I add to two of my cats' food.  Anyway...Fancy Feast out the door!  Each night when I get home from work, we all snuggle in my comfy chair for awhile, just to reconnect after being gone all day.  So neat...can you tell I love my cats??  :)

I just had a friend drop off a very large bag of Greenies for cats.  Her cat recently died, but after reading Dr. Davis' article on these  treats, I'm going to discretely put them in the trash!!  She indicated her cat loved them! Maybe loved them to death.

« on: November 05, 2015, 09:47:07 AM »
Both of these cookie recipes sound wonderful!  I just don't trust myself with sweet stuff, even if it's artificial.  I add sweetener to the cereal I eat once in awhile (from Wheat-Free market).  I've probably mentioned before that sweets were my downfall pre-WB, and even if there's very low carbs, it kicks that sweet tooth in, and I'm in trouble. But I wanted to say that I appreciate another recipe!  I'm always on the lookout for something different.

I, too, watch Ina Garten, and love her programs.  She makes preparation seem so simple, and doesn't seem to care if she slops something out of the bowl!  Not that she does that very often.

Just in case no one has tried the hot cereal from the Wheat Free Market, it's pretty good!  I ordered some recently in my quest to find something "cereal" like to eat for BF.  I can't name all the ingredients since I'm at work now, but just add hot water to 1/3 cup dry mix, let it sit for a few minutes, and indulge!  I added a smidge of sweetener and a tablespoon or two of cream.  Great way to start the day.

Wheat Free Recipes / Hot Cereal
« on: October 02, 2015, 11:23:07 AM »
I found a recipe on the Wheat Free Market site for hot cereal, which I've missed since starting WB.  Or hot cereal that tastes good!  Ordered some of the granola from the Market and am now prepared to have hot cereal tomorrow!  Have to grind up the granola, add flax seed, etc.....anyone tried this recipe?  It's listed below, but I've also discovered the granola is pretty darned good on its own!  Probably too good...  ;)

Hot "Cereal"
Serves 1
1/3 cup Wheat-Free Market Foods Classic Granola
 1 tablespoon ground golden flaxseed
  cup milk of choice
  teaspoon Wheat-Free Market Sweetener
 Fresh berries (optional) 
Blend granola in a Magic Bullet type device until it becomes a fine meal or the consistencydesired for your cereal. 
To a small bowl add the ground granola, ground flaxseed, milk and sweetener, then stir.
Microwave for 1 minute then stir. Top with fresh berries and enjoy.
