I'm sorry Georgene, yes sweet is sweet bell peppers . I use red, green,and yellow bell peppers.

Ham bone broth

1 ham bone
1 onion chopped
2 cloves of garlic chopped
1 tsp. dried thyme
2 T. dried parsley ( I use parsley I froze in ice cubes
2 stalks of celery cut in half
one small carrot chopped ( for flavor, if on induction leave this out
enough water to cover your bones, fill up your crockpot.

I put this all in my crockpot and cook for 24 hours ( sometimes I leave it longer).When you put this in the fridge take out all the veggies because now they are worthless and throw away.All the their vitamins are now in your broth.

Now you have wonderful broth. Next is my recipe using this broth to make green bean ("pea") soup.

I love spicy but not everybody does. So I don't put it on a recipe but I do add it where I want it.

Esther,
I want to order some probiotics to make sunflower seed cheese. Can you recommend an inexpensive brand with no dairy?

Nut, dairy biscuit using Carbquik?

Does anyone have a good recipe? Hubby is wanting one. Buttoni posted one that looks so good but it has dairy.

Esther, do you think we could tweak this recipe?

INGREDIENTS:

4 oz. cream cheese, softened
2 eggs
½ c. Jennifer Eloff Gluten-Free bake mix
¼ c. CarbQuick bake mix
1 T. Parmesan Cheese, grated
½ c. Monterey Jack Cheese, grated
½ tsp. each baking powder and baking soda
dash salt
1 T. olive oil

DIRECTIONS: Preheat oven to 350º. Soften cream cheese and beat in the eggs. Add all remaining ingredients and stir just to moisten all ingredients. Dip onto parchment lined or non-stick baking sheet, forming 9 large drop biscuits or spoon into non-stick muffin top pans. Pop into preheated oven for about 15 minutes or until nicely browned.

NUTRITIONAL INFO: Makes 9 large biscuits, each containing:
134.5 calories

Grammy G, how about the non-dairy products that you use. Do they have an equivalent for these?

Hi Terry,
I can't figure out how to replace the cream cheese. I've tried coconut milk cheese and did not care for the flavor at all. I really miss dairy!

Hmm. I don't remember if this has been asked or you've talked about it. Some people who are allergic to cow's milk products can handle goats milk. Is that even a possibility?

Sorry Georgene I just saw these.


Green bean "pea" soup

6 cups ham bone broth
1 cup chopped up ham
16 oz. frozen green beans
2 garlic cloves chopped
1/2 onion chopped
2 stalks celery chopped
3 c. cauliflower (you can use frozen)
salt to taste

( I use 1 cup coconut milk at the end to make creamy, you don't have to do this)

Put everything in the crockpot put on low for about 8 hours. I use an immersion blender. You want to put it all in a blender and spin until smooth.I keep about a 1/2 cup out to put on top of soup as garnish.

I hope you like it.

Georgene they have diaya non-dairy cheese at safeway . It's 5.00 for 8 oz.of there hard cheeses. They might have cream cheese.I can't remember what it's made from. I just went to there website. They have a cream cheese cheesecake recipe on there.

I made one I found online . It's dairy-free cream cheese made from coconut cream. I didn't do it right the first time. I'm getting ready to try again.I don't know if you can cook with it. I only want to mess up once.It's from The Spunky coconut.

You can get Solaray at a health food store but it's 20. buck for 100. If you order online it's 300 d/f probiotics capsules for 32. bucks.

If you know anybody whose has a farm and raises grass-fed beef dairy cows you might be able to eat it because it's organic. I don't know about goats milk. I've had my allergy since I was a baby but thats the only one I knew.

There is alot of cheese in that biscuit I work it out in alot of recipes but thats alot of cheese.

Would you be interested in a different biscuit recipe?

Thanks for all the help Esther! I plan on making your soup tomorrow. :-)

I would LOVE a different biscuit recipe! I made one of KevinPa's biscuits with the Carbquik this morning and dh liked it. But, I know there is controversy on using the Carbquik because of the wheat.

Sweetie if you can handle Carbquik you go right ahead. Everybody has to be on there own food journey.

Since you have carbquik here is one I use to use all the time.This makes 1 biscuit

1/4 c. carbquik
2 T. coconut oil,ghee, butter
1/8 tsp. baking powder

Mix everything together & pour into a ramekin ( or whatever you use), microwave for 1 to 3 minutes (depending on strength of microwave). You can multiply recipe by 4 to get 4 biscuits .

You are very welcome Georgene!!!

It took me many years to find out that I'm allergic to all grains.
Here is Carolyns Carbquik pancakes

1/3 c. carbquik
2/3 tsp. baking powder

Mix in bowl , set aside.

1 egg
2 T. coconut oil, ghee melted
2 T. almond milk
1/4 tsp. vanilla

Mix all the wet ingredients in bowl , then pour in dry ingredients and mix well. Pour into skillet and cook.
I loved these for a long time. I think I made waffles from this too.
I also put savory spices in them to make bread for hamburgers, sandwhiches, sloppy joes.

Many I had to give up. I really hope you love them too.

My hardest ones to give up was Dairy and Diet Coke. I feel so much better now.

You can multiply that pancake recipe to make more and freeze them.I use to do that.

Georgene do you make oopsies? I ask because you can make them using mayonaise instead of cream cheese.

No Esther. I have never made oopsies. Are all the recipes the same? I'll look one up if they are.

I was just coming to the board to tell you I made the Mexican Casserole tonight and we both loved it! I have leftover which I'll either use in a tortilla tomorrow or in a soup. Thank you so much. YAY for more recipes.

I've gained 5 pounds and it's not coming off. My joints are hurting so do you think part of the problem may be a food I'm eating that is making my joints swell? I think I'm eating too many low carb muffins and I made your Mayo cake. :-)

So what would you (and anyone recommend who is reading *smile*) advise? More veggies? Less nuts? Is there an easy formula to start losing again? I can't do strict Atkins because there is not enough veggies and I end up with problems (constipation).

Thanks in advance for your help!

Oopsies

3 eggs separated
1/4 tsp. cream of tarter
1/4 c. real mayo

( if past induction you can add 2 T. sunflower seed flour or flax)

Put whites in a big bowl, add cream of tarter and mix on high speed with a hand mixer or stand up mixer until you have stiff peaks. Stiff means if you turn bowl upside down they stay in the bowl.STIFF

next bowl yolks & mayo blend well then add sunflower seed flower. Now fold in yolk mixture to egg whites bowl. Fold well but gently. Take a cookie sheet and put egg mixture in 6 piles on cookie sheet. Bake @ 325 for 15 to 25 mins. depending on how brown you want them.

These are great for burgers and sandwhiches.:upOurs are made with mayo not cream cheese.


Ok your joint pain, eat some carbquik pancakes or something with it in there. Then don't eat any thing with wheat in it for 4 days. Then eat it on the fifth day. Do you have the same symtoms as on the first day?
Listen to what your body is telling you, it will tell you.
Sorry sweetie that joint pain is coming from wheat. Don't eat anything with wheat in it that includes low carb tortillas. LOL I know you don't want to hear this.

psyllium husk in plain water will take care of any constipation we get.

I hope I'm helping.

You may be right about the wheat. I'll try that. I also went off of chocolate today. I've was eating the Mayo Cake and some chocolate low carb candy. I was getting headaches and a stiff neck. No chocolate today and barely any problems. I love chocolate!

It may not be the chocolate honey. I only know 1 candy that they say is made from splenda. Hard candies but read the back ingredients sweetie it has isomalt as the first ingredient. Maltitol will do it too. Is you chocolate candy sweetened with maltitol?Look at the sweetners first when it comes to chocolate.
If you are buying commercial candy they don't always use good for you ingredients.

How did you do with the chocolate mayo cake.

I'll write more if I think of more.

I backed off all chocolate for one day and no headaches. Today I had a piece of the chocolate mayo cake and now I have a stiff neck and headache.

I've been reading about Arthritis and food that will trigger it and chocolate is one of them but so is artificial sweeteners. I also found out that salt will trigger it. I bought some pork rinds and boy did my joints flare up with pain.

Is Isomalt and Maltitol bad for you and why is that?

Big hugs!

No it's not bad for you. It depends on the person but sometimes we react to it.

Maltitol---- people get stomach cramps really bad.
Isomalt----hardly no reactions from people, I just found out I now react after using for 15 years

But you are right about chocolate it can trigger arthritis pain.

I LOVE<LOVE you are listening to what YOUR body is telling you. It will talk.

Hugs,Hugs Gammy!

This is plain coconut milk yogurt and I love it. You can add sweetner and fruit ( if allowed) to it before putting in yogurt machine.

If you make it plain you can make sauces out of it.


Coconut milk yogurt
2 cans coconut milk
1 envelope gelatin
sweetner to your taste
7 solaray probiotics dairy free
1/4 c. water to disolve gelatin

Take the 2 cans of coconut milk & pour into large bowl warm up to 110 degrees in microwave oven. Disolve gelatin in water( heat water ), pour into large bowl with milk. When the coconut milk gets to 92 degrees add d/f probiotics , stir well. Pour into jars & put in yogurt machine for 10 hours. then when done put in fridge for 8 hours.

P.S. Netrition carries a beef gelatin that you can use. I get mine from Amazon but I've to use grass fed gelatin.

you also want real coconut milk.

Vanessa from Healthy how to---- has a sour cream recipe.

coconut milk sour cream
1 can coconut milk
1 T. vinegar ( I used apple cider vinegar)

Put can in fridge overnite. Take out 1 c. of coconut milk cream ( from the top of can, you can use the rest in a smoothie). Add vinegar.

This is awesome.
YOU MIGHT HAVE TO USE MORE VINEGAR TO YOUR TASTE

Hi Esther,
Thank you so much for posting these recipes. Do you use full fat coconut milk in the can? And what brand names are the best!

You are a walking book of information! Thank you, thank you!

Esther,
Do you know what the carb count is on your mayo cake and also the yummy dairy free chocolate? I can't find a carb count on either.

No hurry!

I want to give you a recipe for my smoothies. It depends on how I feel that day on what I put in it. I use kale, spinach , cucumber etc.
When I use fruit it is in 1/4 cup sizes frozen strawberries, raspberries, blueberries or blackberries.

Coconut milk smoothie

1 c. coconut milk ( can or carton)
1/2 of an avocado in chunks
1 T. lemon juice
ice cubes
8 drops sweetner or to taste
1 raw egg or 2 egg whites
1/2 tsp glucomannan

Here is when you put in your additions friut or veggie or both. Put 2 T. cocoa powder & sweetner for chocolate to make a chocolate smoothie.


Blend this all very well in blender.If you have any question or if I'm confusing anybody let me know.
