Hi..

Wow...lots of posts and great pictures..

Cindy: Let me know if you find a secret to those noodles..please...Love that picture and I thought of Bailey, too...

Sandy is right..(again)..Those gluten-free products are much higher in carbs than regular products..Dr. Davis (Wheat Belly author) said to avoid them like the plague, if you are counting carbs at all..

Jess: Your picture looked great...It is hard to get a good crunch with LC recipes..Almond flour is so different than the wheat flour..

Judy: You can do the SlowBurn from Fred's book, but the DVD's are great and you would only need those..Package of 3 from his site..Serious Strength or something like that..

Ah...Chinese food..You never know what they put in that stuff sometimes, but it is sooo good..

Beth is taking her Certification for a Professional Event Planner test today..She took a course..I hope she passes...

They taste good either way. I just find the texture more appealing when it is lighter. But beating it less would give it a more dense authentic cheesecake feel. I think its a personal preference kind of thing.

Okay..I had to make an almond butter grilled cheese with tomato sandwich.. Very good.
I have eaten 2 of my 6 just today. Tonight I will abstain from the "bread"..I figured out that there are 300 calories in each of 6 whole muffin tops.

I looked at my Justin's Almond Butter:

CLASSIC ALMOND BUTTER
Ingredients: Dry Roasted Almonds, Organic Palm Fruit Oil

And it's pretty good!

I love Justin's Almond Butter. I have never found it without some kind of sugar, so I'll look for that!

I just bought almond butter today and was so excited to find it I forgot to check the label. And I confess to eating too many of the gluten free goodies. Picked up some cookies and had to sample. Gosh the chocolate ones were good. Too many carbs, but I felt a little entitled from going gluten free. I had better clean up my act or I have no chance of getting invited to the lunch table...

I also got some almond flour. For those of you who have made the almond butter bread, which recipe did you like better--the one using the flour and oil, or the one using almond butter?

I've only made it once and I used almond butter. I really liked it so IDK if I'll try the other one or not. It will probably depend on whether I have almonds or almond butter on hand.

I've only made the almond bread with the flour and oil combo and I liked it that way, but it was what I had on hand. I find it much faster to make my own flours then making the nut butters so I almost always use flours when I can. I doubt that there is a big difference in texture between the two methods.

Waffles were always my staple breakfast before going LC and I've been craving waffles like crazy for a while and I've tried a bunch of recipes. But I still haven't found the right one. I'm trying Carolyn's (from all day I dream about food) next, she has almond flour ones that look appealing. I haven't enjoyed the whipped egg white or protein powder based ones so far. If I have the time I'll give it a go tonight, if not it will be this weekend. But I am starting to wonder if my ancient yard sale waffle iron is going bad on me, I tend to burn a lot of my attempts which doesn't help anything. If I can find a good recipe I may invest in a new iron.

Waffles!

Jess if you find a recipe you like, I'd be all over it.
I have a gluten-free recipe I've used for years. It's a tweak of the South Beach pancake recipe together with the Cooking Light pumpkin pancake recipe. I have an obsession with pumpkin waffles with sugar-free syrup.

Here is my recipe. I wonder if there could be some combination of coconut flour and almond flour to sub for the oats?

Oatmeal Pumpkin Pancakes/Waffles
1 cup old-fashioned oatmeal
1/2 cup cottage cheese (or yogurt; result is the same)
4 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 Tbsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1 tsp. each ginger, allspice, cloves
1 cup pumpkin
Artificial sweetener to equal 1/2 cup
Could add sugar-free brown sugar, 2 or 3 Tbsp.
or splash of DaVinci pumpkin pie or gingerbread


Process all ingredients with hand blender until smooth.
Spray nonstick skillet or waffle iron with cooking spray and cook until both sides are lightly browned.

I have loved these for years. They are very spicy, so adjust to your taste. Again, the oats...
I have at times added oat flour to firm these up. I wonder if a smaller amount of oat flour would do? It has a lot of fiber.

Serena - "treating" yourself is something I would do too. It's the catch-up with the treating I am dealing with now, I think...

Hi ladies...

Waffle recipe? I will have search one for you..Can you use the almond flour pancake one?
It is on the Wheat Belly site, Jess..

Hmm..Judy: I would sub one cup of almond flour for the oatmeal and see what happens. My rule is that it has to "look" like the right kind of batter, cake, cookie, etc.
if it doesn't then I add more dry stuff or more liquid..

I haven't tried the almond butter one, but the almond flour one was great..

Did my Slow Burn this am....and some errands..Home again..Meeting tonight.

And when I said "oat flour" I meant "oat bran" to firm up the waffles.

It's such a good recipe it's worth fiddling around. I agree, Carolyn, it has to "look" right.

Yes! It sure has. I even heard people in the health food store talking about it. The dentist had recommended that it is the new finding in health news... and my Dr. already knew about it before I did!

......and our Dr. Groves really was one of the first to tell peeps to watch the protein...watch the protein. I do think if Dr. Atkins lived longer, that would have been his message, too..

Jimmy Moore is experimenting with his state of ketosis..He has found that
for him 85 percent fat, 12 percent protein, and 3 percent carbs puts him in a good ketosis and he is losing again. Now..for him, 12 percent protein will be definitely enough for him..as it will be 90 or so grams, I'm sure.

Interesting about Jimmy Moore. I'd love to see his food log!

I made a bacon, egg and cheese muffin this a.m. with one of the almond butter buns. YummOOO!!! And I wasn't hungry until just a little bit ago.

Jess, have you seen this thread: http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...es-w-pics.html
Check out her blog also.

All right, the noodles are here. I will report later as I think I will make them for MY dinner. Don't want to impose them on the BF.

If you like bean sprouts, you would like these. But I microwaved them, fried them, but they wouldn't soften. How they is is how they is. Crunchy bean sprouts.

Yep.
That's what all the cool kids say!

I am sorry you don't feel well. It's completely worth losing a pound, though.

Judy: Thanks for the recipe but unfortunately pumpkin doesnít agree with my stomach very well. Itís not an allergy like wheat, tomatoes, mango or fluoride for me it just always seems to make me feel a bit queasy whenever I eat. Itís a shame really because it seems like a really useful low carb ingredient.

Carolyn: The last low carb pancake batter I put in the waffle iron turned out a bit disastrous. But Iím willing to keep trying. I was going to try Carolynís almond yogurt waffles last night but I forgot that I didnít have any yogurt in the house. Iím going to pick some up tonight and give them a try tomorrow. I tried Mariaís original almond flour waffles last night and they were very dry and nearly impossible to get out of the iron in one piece. Iím beginning to suspect my crummy waffle iron is making things worse so Iím thinking of investing in a new one.
Iím loving the slow burn style of weight lifting. Iím starting to feel a smidge of nice dense muscle in my upper arms now, that is if I squeeze through the cubby parts

Cindy: I have seen that one before and it looks pretty good but I donít know how well it would work in a waffle iron. I may give the pancakes a try at some point but my tummy is specifically requesting waffles. Iím sure the perfect recipe for me is out there, just have to find it. I love all the suggestions!

Serena: I hope you start feeling better soon!

I went a bit overboard on some chicken wings Wednesday night and Iím still trying to flush the salt out of my system. I can just tell that Iím holding on to some extra water weight. But it was worth it to splurge on the extra calories, the wings were super tasty and satisfying.

Jess - leave out the pumpkin and most of the spices. I started using that recipe and added pumpkin on my own. I think the only spice I started with was cinnamon & nutmeg. I might even try this with oat bran - found on the cereal aisle. I'll have to check the carbs first.

And spray the heck out of your waffle iron before putting in the batter.

In fact, here is the recipe before I tweaked it much.

Oatmeal pancakes/ waffles
1/2 cup old-fashioned oatmeal
1/4 cup low-fat cottage cheese (or tofu or yogurt)
2 eggs
artificial sweetener to equal 1/4 cup
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg

Process all ingredients in a blender until smooth. (I use a stick blender)

Spray a nonstick skillet or waffle iron with cooking spray. Add the
batter and cook over medium heat until both sides are lightly browned.

Hi ladies...

Yes, I will remind you all when Jimmy posts his "food log".. It is nice that he is keeping track....

Jess: Yup, Maria's waffles aren't very good..I had the same experience with them..Her pictures look great, though....Yeah for Slow Burn...I have the same
experience with upper arm muscles, too..I wish the lower part of the arm would firm up, too...LOL

Yup, Cindy....Those noodles are a disappointment.. Too bad..they won't soften up...One gal on the net did soften them by putting them in 3 parts lemon juice and one part hot water..What????

Serena: Yeah for one pound lost...
