Oops. My bad. That sodium should read only 278 mg. I just double checked again on ******. I picked up the 549 mg phosphorous that was on the ****** chart in error when entering my sodium. My eyes played tricks on me. Sorry.

What IF?????

you used 1/2 to 1 tsp. of real sugar? The yeast will eat it up as
it does with all yeast breads.

I'm really trying to avoid yeast and even minute amounts of sugar these days. But I have successfully in the past added yeast for flavor to a few breads. Think you could try it here, too, Barb. Though it's pretty darned tasty as is. I know everyone on all the LC forums I frequent says the yeast "eats" the sugar...........but aren't I then eating that same yeast beastie (with that sugar in his tummy)?

Well you should be so lucky.

After the beastie gets through eating the yeast, he does what all creatures do and excretes what isn't digested. THAT is what raises the bread....the gas. Also, I believe what isn't excreted as gas is transformed from sugar into lactic (?) acid.

There is a whole world beneath us (and inside us) that we can't see.

Also, in reference to eating the beastie with sugar in the tummy - if a pig, for example, eats corn, he turns that corn into meat, and for humans, eating the pig doesn't have the same effect on us as eating the corn would, right? Same principle applies here. You just can't see it, like you can with the pig. Yeast is a live creature, just like the pig is (so much for vegetarians not wanting to kill or eat a live creature.)

Well, I guess that makes good sense, Georgene. But I don't think 'll add yeast to my breads. The thought of eating yeast "gas" or "excrement" doesn't sound so exciting either. Your analogy may have just permanently destroyed any wee proclivities on my part to do so again.

Hahaha! Then maybe I better be quiet about all the other foods that result in exactly the same thing.

BTW, I mentioned somewhere about getting some "fresh baked bread" flavor drops from-sorry, I don't remember where. Maybe nature's flavors? Well, I got some and have been completely underwhelmed by the flavor. In other words - couldn't taste it. Maybe I'm not putting enough, but they are supposed to be concentrated drops, not something you use by the tablespoon.

Can you tell me what happens to potato chips? give me an analogy to make me think of them in a negative way. I would like to be cured of the craving for them!

Oh, thanks so much for your feedback on the "fresh baked bread" flavoring. I was seriously thinking about ordering some (if I could ever find it again on their very rambling site). I don't think I'll bother ordering now. Good to know.

I need that analogy for potato chips, too, DmBurk. I still wistfully think of potatoes (in all forms) from time to time. I confess my sin openly here and before God. LOL

My cousins make the best potato chips on earth-Dieffenbach's Old Fashion Potato Chips cooked in lard- I grew up eating them hot out of the fryer, and my husband of 27 years eats them every day for lunch, I can't Not buy them. So they are in my kitchen all the time. I went for a year and a half without eating any, but this summer I got cocky and thought I could eat 1 or 2 or 6 then went on a potato chip binge. Gained 10 lbs this summer. I think I got a handle on my eating now, but no losses yet.

Maybe they can start making some low carb vege chips. I mean fried in lard, should be yummy! And if they mass produce them I know I would be interested.

Maybe we could bribe your cousins into slicing jicama real thin and frying those up in lard. Man, I'd sure order them! The ones I made tasted a LOT like real potato chips!

Thanks for the 'tater' confession

Can't get them outta my mind either.

Miss them...................

Jicama sliced on mandoline and deep fried in our baby fryer,
then dusted quickly with salt and a good organic onion powder
and Oh baby I was happy again.

When I cheat outside of our home it's always potatoes of some
kind.

No problem, Barb. We all got off on a tangent there. Potatoes just do that to me. Desserts have never been my weakness. It was always the almighty potato.

I'm so glad you liked this, Arbee! And that one is so easy, too.

I posted new Gluten-Free Focaccia bread and Gluten-Free pizza crust recipes just his week that are even better than that one!! this thread has both pics and the recipe: http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...cia-bread.html
