My meals are very much plain.I use alot of induction meals and have for years. I eat a lot of bone broth to heal my gut and soup. I use bone broth to make gravy & thickner.
If I want to bread something I use pork rinds when I can find it without soybean oil.
I use nutritional yeast in recipes to give a cheesy flavor.I also use homemade yogurt in recipes, and for dips and to make sauces. I use dairy free yogurt to make salad dressings.

Hi Esther,
I had some low carb chocolate the other day and ended up 'creaking'. I realized it had milk. Do you ever eat chocolate with milk in it?

I tried to call you yesterday but it said your voice mail had not been set up. :-)

Grammy I use cheese for my DH but not mine.

meatloaf --- I use no bread crumbs-- i use a lot of veggies

chicken wings --- no breading-- I use d/f yogurt to make sauces for wings --- just holler if you want some of these

salsbury steaks w/ bone broth gravy ---- mashed cauliflower w/ that gravy

beef stew in crockpot

wild fish in ghee & spices

There are a few sweetie. If you want recipes just holler. I will keep checking this.

This recipe is a side recipe for MMorris Butterfinger cookies, she made them using peanutbutter this one is using sunflower seed butter.


Sunflower seed butter cookie

1 c. sun butter ( I make my own using sunflower seed meal flour )
8 drops liquid sucralose
3 packets truvia
2 T poly d
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla

Mix this all together and spread the whole thing on a cookie sheet.
Bake @ 350 for about 15 to 17 mins. until brown around the edges.
let cool then crumble up into a big heap.Put in a bowl , set aside.


Sunflowerseed butter filling

4 T. melted butter
1 c. sunflower butter
2 T. poly d
1 packet truvia
4 drops liquid sucralose

Mix this together in a bowl really combined. Pour over your cookie crumbs and mix throughly . This is where I'm doing it differently. I put this in the fridge and chill really well. Now I take them out and roll into balls , put on cookie tray. I then pour chocolate on each one. I get about 30 little sunbutter balls covered in chocolate.

I made these for christmas and everybody loved them.

I think the poly D gives it some crunch if you don't have it you can still make them but they are not kinda crunchy.I loved them.

You have been such HUGE blessing this past year Esther! Thank you for all the help you have given me! I really want to try the candy you posted.

Question? Do you have sensitivities to any of the artificial sweeteners? Is the liquid sucralose a problem for you? What is poly d?

Also, I've tried taking my pulse on several food right after I eat something but my pulse stays the same. Would it go up immediately? I'm thinking maybe the joint pain problems are different than allergies?

Big hugs!

Yes that is it. I love these cookies. It's fiber but I don't use alot of some of this low carb stuff because I can't . I handle poly D and glucocomannan pretty well.

I will get those recipes for you.

Put everything in a blender or food processor and spin to desired consistency. Chill and serve.


Onion dip

1 c. yogurt
1 1/2 T. dried onion chips ( I dry vadalia onions )

Mix this all together and let chill for 3 or 4 hours for everything to marry.

I use this as a dip Georgene and to put on chicken.



1/2 c. homemade mayo
1/2 c. d/f yogurt
1 tsp. Linda Sue's homemade dry ranch seasoning

Mix all together, chill to thicken.

I use this to smear on chicken and bake. As a dip.


Add a T. of Franks hot sauce and 2 cups of chopped cold chicken and this is a wonderful chicken dip.

You are very welcome!

Here's one I made tonight.Read this completely this is how I do it for 2 people eating a little different.

Mexican Casserole

1 can hunts tomato sauce 8 oz.
1/4 c. water
2 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp Linda Sue Taco seasoning
1/2 tsp. cumin
2 T. chopped green chili
2 T. chopped black olives
1/2 onion chopped
1 lb. hamburger

For DH 1/4 c. shredded cheddar
For you 2 T. nutritional yeast

Hamburger & onion in skillet until brown. In a bowl add tomato sauce, water, chili powder, taco seasoning, cumin & green chili, black olives and blend well.Now combine both together.

I have 2 casserole dishes that hold 2 cups of food. Take 1/2 and put it in each casserole then sprinkle cheese on his and nutritional yeast on yours . Bake @ 350 for 15 to 20 minutes until hot and bubbly.

I serve DH's with corn chips and mine with sunflower crackers.

Hope you like it.

Where do you buy sunflower crackers Esther?

I will look for a 2 cup casserole dish! This looks like a great recipe. It's similar to one I used to make that used corn tortillas.

You're a blessing Esther!

Esther,
Do you think the Vitamix grinds the sunflower seeds better than a coffee grinder?

Georgene do you know our Almond thins recipe? I just change the almond flour for sunflower flour and add herbs. I can get it for you.

If you have reg. casseroles dishes you can do what I use to make 2. Take aluminum foil and fold in half then lay in dish. You should have a wall to hold 2 recipes.Then put parchment paper in both. It proably is similar to one you make. I just wanted to eat it too.

I got these little casserole dishes from the dollar store years ago.

Do you have a vitamix or heavy duty blender? I use both but I have both. Some foods only the vitamix will work but some like my herbs and teas the coffee grinder works better.

I use my coffee grinder for sunflower seeds.

Your are very welcome!!!!

Here is my dairy free chocolate candy recipe.It has no coconut taste.

Chocolate candy

2 cans full fat coconut milk
4 oz. unsweeten chocolate bar form(melted)
1/4 c. powdered Erythritol
3 packages Truvia
6 drops liquid sucralose
1/2 c. warm coconut oil

The day before you are going to put the cans of coconut milk in the fridge so that the cream comes up to the top. Spoon out the cream into your food processor. Use what is leftover for a shake.You don't want to use the water in bottom of can.

Make sure your unsweeten chocolate is melted, coconut oil warm (not too warm.

Put everything in your food processor , combine really well. Now you can pour into molds. I wanted to show pics but I still can't figure out my new camera. I make this a lot so I will put some up.

I made plain candy bars, some with pecans, some peanut butter cups
and I made twelve that are like twix bars.

I hope you like it as much as me.

Meatloaf
2 lbs. hamburger (or combo of veal , turkey , chicken , pork)
1/2 c. chopped sweet peppers
1/2 onion chopped
2 cloves garlic chopped
1/2 c. chopped celery
1/2 c. chopped mushrooms
salt & pepper
1/2 tsp. cyenne pepper
1 T. parsley dry
1/4 c. ketchup or homemade ketchup sugar free

Put your combo of ground meat and everything but ketchup in a large bowl mix really well. Pick up and put in a loaf pan . Cover your meatloaf with s/f ketchup and cook for 60 mins @ 350 in oven.

I like jalapenos & nutritional yeast in mine.I also put cheese for DH in the middle of his.I splits this in half in the loaf pan.

Hope you like it.
