I never have used coconut flour. I always use almond flour or flax. I'll look for it next time I go to my health food store and see if they have it. I'm sure if there is a good health food store near you, they have it or will order it.

Creamed beans??? Tell me more. I love creamed spinach. Do you make it like creamed spinach and substitute green beans for spinach.

Dinner

Bacon and eggs for dinner last night. Yes, it is quick and easy and filling. Just an added note though. To make it super rich and filling, I add half a block of cream cheese to the eggs. I put it in right at the beginning. It makes the eggs delicious and by the way, I'm not a big fan of eggs.

I haven't made anything new and interesting lately so I just thought I would post, quick and easy instead. Have a great day everyone.

I did more than roasting because I am not a big fan of cauliflower unless I goober it up a little and make it fattening. I used two frozen bags of cauliflower for this. You will have a lot left over but it warms up fine. If you use only one bag, cut everything in half.


1. Spread the cauliflower out in a 9 x 13 dish and coat all pieces in oil. (I used olive oil)
2. Add seasonings to taste. (I used salt and pepper)
3. Cook on 400 degrees until browning.
4. Take out and begin mashing with a potato masher
5. Mix 1/2 cup cream/2 eggs/1 cup cheese
6. Pour over squashed cauliflower and mix it all up to look like a casserole
7. Put back in the oven until cheese is brown
8. EAT

I hope this helps. Have a great day and enjoy. I'm eating bacon right now for lunch. I LOVE this WOL.

It probably does the same thing with the cream cheese. All I know is that I scramble two eggs alone and eat them, I am still hungry. If I put the cream cheese in, I'm full. That's the main reason I add it, but the eggs do get fluffy.

Pepperoni pizza w/pork rind crust (my fave so far, not posting the recipe yet because I need to get my measurements correct, i eyeballed it yesterday).

Ok just looked back and saw I didn't post the pic of the pizza I made the other day. I used Nancy Elles mozz/egg pizza crust. It was good, but that's way too much cheese for my diet, so I wanted an alternative, thus the pork rind crust.

Mmmm, I knew someone was going to ask me that Lol. I'll have to go back and find it I have no idea where it's at.

Found it:
http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...t-do-i-do.html

Posted by Sweet Pea:
Doughnut Holes

1 large egg
1/4 cup melted butter
Sweetener to taste, if needed
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder (1/3 cup)
Coconut oil

Topping:
Sweetener & cinnamon

Taste and texture-wise, these fall somewhere in between true doughnuts and funnel cakes. They cook very fast, so make sure you have everything on hand!

Heat about 1 inch of oil in a heavy skillet until it's hot enough for frying. While the oil heats, beat the egg lightly with the melted butter, then add the protein powder, and vanilla. Taste and add sweetener if you want it sweeter. I find the Jay Robb Vanilla sweet enough.

Whisk together until all the lumps are pretty much broken up, then let it rest a minute or two and whisk a bit more (batter will still have a grainy look to it, but that's fine).

Using a large tablespoon or serving spoon, drop the batter by large tablespoonfuls into the hot oil in batches of 4.
Fry until bottoms are golden-brown, which will only take a few seconds, then flip.
Drain on paper towels, then sprinkle with sweetener and cinnamon to taste and serve hot.

Makes about 8-12 doughnut holes

I want ALL the recipes. Wow, that stuff looks good. I don't like any of the cauliflower crusts so the pork rind crust might do the trick.

I've been following this thread for a couple of weeks. Love the pictures! Finally decided to take a stab at trying my own. I hope these aren't too big, I used a Windows App to automatically resize since I'm clueless about stuff like that.

LC Turkey & Cheese wrap on a La Tortilla basil and sun dried tomato wrap. I mixed up some cream cheese, heavy cream, dehydrated onion, minced chives, a dash of worchestershire sauce, a couple good shakes of season salt, and some black pepper. Was a little too oniony...I was trying to recreate the chive cream cheese I buy at the store. But still really tasty! I'm so proud of myself, I never make anything fancy like this.

Brave-I also have not been satisfied with any of the other crusts that are cauli bases or cheese based. I know canned parm is cheese but I don't count it like that. I will try it again tonight and get measurements because I kind of eyeballed it last night. I'm thinking 1egg, 1/4 cup each of crushed pork rinds and parm, and a tsp of italian seasoning.

Mona that wrap looks sooooooooo tasty!

Me too! What I do is just pour the batter in lined muffin tins, then freeze the muffins, allowing myself one every so often (not now, I'm back on induction).

Off topic: Robin, I think you look just like Natalie Portman. I've been following this thread, and everytime I looked at your picture, I thought you looked familiar. It finally dawned on me!
