I'm making pancakes this morning; what about a dinner of pancakes and bacon?

Ingredients

4 eggs, room temperature
1 cup milk (raw cow’s or coconut both work)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 tablespoon honey or a pinch of stevia
1/2 cup coconut flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
coconut oil or butter for frying

Directions

Preheat griddle over medium-low heat. In a small bowl beat eggs until frothy, about two minutes. Mix in milk, vanilla, and honey or stevia.
In a medium-sized bowl combine coconut flour, baking soda, and sea salt and whisk together. Stir wet mixture into dry until coconut flour is incorporated.
Grease pan with butter or coconut oil. Ladle a few tablespoons of batter into pan for each pancake. Spread out slightly with the back of a spoon. The pancakes should be 2-3 inches in diameter and fairly thick. Cook for a few minutes on each side, until the tops dry out slightly and the bottoms start to brown. Flip and cook an additional 2-3 minutes.
Serve hot with butter, coconut oil, honey, syrup, or fruit.

We don't eat any wheat at my house, and we are never bored. Since finding this site, my life has changed for the better in the eating department. We try something new every week and found many "keepers."

Pizza, lasagna, fettucine alfredo, we eat ALL of our favorites!!

The nice thing about eating LC is the elimination of wheat almost by default - you won't find many LC foods that include wheat (or grains). I have to mention the obvious, though: LC can't be just a "quick fix" to lose weight. Returning to your old way of eating after losing the weight will only make you gain it back, and then some. Even more important to consider this as a way of life if you're intolerant to wheat/gluten. Such good advice already - the trick is to start thinking outside the box of what you always thought about for eating and recipes. The more you research and ask questions, the more this WOE will become natural to you. Good luck and welcome!

I think you just need to google some wheat-free/low carb recipies. Check out Mark's Daily Apple for recipes. We eat coconut pancakes a LOT in our home. Love them! I've been wheat-free for 4 months, and I am not bored at all. I've adapted. Having new recipes definitely helps! Good luck!!

Taste buds are more mutable than we think--they'll savor what they regard as nourishment. Many unhealthy eaters are actually getting less variety because it's all tricks of shape and flavoring to conceal the fact that their food supply is essentially milled starch and corn syrup.

Instead of thinking about the restrictions, I like to think about the healthy categories: meat, eggs, whole dairy, watery plants, and fatty plants. They can be combined in so many ways (especially if your plan allows for calculated amounts of legume/tuber/fruit).

In the US we're conditioned by every restaurant menu to believe that a proper meal must come wrapped in bread or on a bed of noodles, but that's mostly the commodity prices talking.

I just finished reading Wheat Belly. It was very interesting and answered a lot of questions. Going totally wheat free... no more Joseph's or Mama Lina's but it'll be worth it. AND blue cheese, who would have thought

I went totally grain free about a year after I started low carbing. I have a client who brings me organic, grass fed and finished ground beef from her father's farm from time to time and I was desperate to find interesting things to do with it.

So far I've LOVED the recipes I've found for skillet beef stroganoff, Thai larb, tacos (with shells made of cheese!) and jerk seasoned beef. I rotate through them every so often and so far I haven't gotten bored.

The trick to this WOE is planning ahead and being creative. No better time than now, with the entire Internet at our fingertips, to be a low carber!

In addition to low carb recipes, many Paleo recipes are low carb or can be easily adapted (they won't have grains or legumes but may have starchy veggies, natural sweeteners (eg honey) or fruit.

Think about what you served before adopting this woe. That will give you some ideas based on family favorites.

Coincidence? I went wheat free on Sunday... weighed myself this morning and was down 4 lbs. The only difference in carb counts was no lc pita or blue cheese dressing.

O.K. I "listened" to Wheat Belly in the car...... usually dont take the time to read all that much since eyes have gotten older... anyway...

What is wrong with Blue Cheese???? Dont remember that part!

The cultures used to ferment blue cheese, gorgonzola, roquefort, and some cottage cheese come in contact with bread molds.

Safeway and Trader Joe's have great lists of their gluten free products on their websites.

Google Paleo recipes. You can make things like Pumpkin Bread using Almond and Coconut flours. I make allowance for the honey called for and just count the carbs but you could use Sugar substitutes also.

I make a mean one that is really more like cake than bread and then freeze slices.

I had to go wheat free as I have celiac's disease. I have noticed that I don't have heartburn any more and my belly has gone down. I have been clean for a month and if I have anything that has even the tiniest bit of gluten my stomach hurts for several hours afterwards.

Pumpkin Bread

1 1/4 Cup Almond Flour
1/2 Cup Coconut Flour
1/4 Cup Ground Flax
1 Tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
1Tsp Salt
1 1/2 Tsp Baking Soda

4 Eggs
1/4 Cup Coconut Oil
1/4 Cup Coconut Milk
1 TBL Apple Cider Vinegar
1/4 Cup Honey
1/2 Cup Pumpkin ( I just use canned)


Mix all wet and dry items in separate bowls. Slowly add dry to wet. Cook in greased bread pan at 325 degrees for 45-50 minutes. Mine seems to take an hour in order to get the middle done.

My family doesn't like the taste of Stevia so I just stick with the honey.

Looks like we will be wheat free as well. Just got Wheat Belly in the mail and have not even read it. But just skimming through.....we need to be wheat free. Thanks for the tips and recipe!

Let me add....While I have been low carb for 12 years (13 this July!) getting the family on board has been more than a chore. I have 4 kids and a rice loving hubby. Thank goodness my Asian hubby can still have his rice when we do go gluten free LOL.

I guess I need to read the book after all....had no idea blue cheese was a no no. I naturally avoid wheat when doing low carb. Of course when I cheat it is with wheat I think I will be less likely now.
There is a talk show host my hubby listens to who has both parents with severe Alzheimer's. He did gene testing for himself and also has the same gene to develop Alzheimer's. His neurologists had him read wheat belly and go gluten free plus low carb. Some research points to Alzheimer's being type 3 diabetes. Since the winter eating that way he not only lost weight but depression has lifted and his mind is so much clearer.
I tend to read on my Kindle but I think Wheat Belly will be a book to share.
