Wheat Free Recipes / MASHED AVOCADO with FETA and PEPITA
« Last post by Barbara from New Jersey on August 18, 2018, 07:10:25 AM »
This is a recipe from Meghan Markle's former blog, Tig.  While she would spread it on toast, we would just use it on suitable crackers, lettuce leaf, salads or just plain on a plate.


MASHED AVOCADO


1 avocado mashed smooth or chunky
blend in a dash of red chile flakes
sprinke with feta cheese
dash pepita
salt and pepper to taste
squeeze of lemon

Why don't you try biscuit recipes from Gourmet Girl Cooks?  She adds grated cheese to many of her recipes so they hold together better.   Don't expect wheat type of elasticity when you use low carb ingredients.  We don't use the starch found in the high glycemic
items either.   She has a terrific recipe for a pizza crust as well.   I can't get this link to work properly.  Just use your own search engine.


Thank you so much for recommending Gourmet Girl Cooks. Her recipes for pizza and biscuits are great. I'm learning a lot from her recipes..

Dietary Fat, but Not Protein or Carbohydrate, Regulates Energy Intake and Causes Adiposity in Mice

Highlights
•Energy intake was linked only to dietary fat levels and not protein or sucrose
•Adiposity increased with increasing fat content to 60% but thereafter declined
•Hypothalamic hunger pathways were unresponsive to dietary protein content
•Dopamine, opioid, and serotonin pathways were all stimulated by fat intake

We make these really yummy cauliflower breadsticks at home.

Ingredients:
4 cups of cauliflower riced (roughly 1 large head of cauliflower)
4 eggs
3 cups mozzarella cheese
3 tsp Italian seasoning
4 cloves of garlic, minced
salt and pepper, to taste
Directions:
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Place riced cauliflower in a microwave-safe container and cover; microwave for 10 minutes.
Let the cauliflower cool until steam is no longer rising, then add to a large bowl along with the eggs, 2 cups of the mozzarella, Italian seasoning, garlic, salt, and pepper.
Combine.
Transfer to the baking sheet and divide into rectangular shapes to form the “breadsticks.”
Bake for 25 minutes, then remove and top with remaining cheese.
Bake for an additional 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
I follow the recipe that's on here - 6. Cauliflower Breadsticks

General Discussion / Should you be on a ketogenic diet long term?

Dr. William Davis says it shouldn't be long term, as it creates a stress response.
I wonder if he's had some new 'ah-has' along the way.
