I got some golden flax seed yesterday. If my food processor will grind it, I'm going to take a stab at this tonight! Thanks Clackley!

this week's menu:
Breakfast : 2 apple kale sausage links, 1 soy sauce egg, 1 low carb cupcake
lunch: chicken tikka masala.

I made extra cupcakes for work and it got decent reviews. one complaint was there's not enough "cake" per cup because i didn't know how it will go so didn't want to make full size cakes and have it all wasted...

Dinner ended up being a mish mash... I went to the grocery store and was hungry before I got home so I snacked on cheese, pistachios a couple bites fage and 5 cherries. I have to be careful around cherries, I have them occasionally but if I eat a few too many, I have a hard time stopping. Same with cashews. Fairly "legal" but once I get going I find it hard to stop.

Anyway, I had 5 and I am not craving more they'll be out of my kitchen tomorrow

Thanks. We have a coffee bean grinder, but it's a De'Longhi, and I think the DH would not be pleased with flax in his espresso....though he did offer for me to try it. I declined because I didn't want coffee-flavoured flaxmeal.

Instead I took a bash with a rolling pin in seeds put in a plastic bag. Crushed it up fairly well....stored the rest in a jar and kept in the fridge, I know how that stuff can go rancid.

I did make the skillet bread. I need a better pan, really, because my non-stick is no longer "non-stick" and the excess butter started smoking. Would coconut oil be better? So I ended up taking the half-cooked bread and finishing it in the oven.
Pros: not bad with quite a bit of butter! I think this would be really good with tuna +mayo, or chopped up boiled egg + mayo.
And for what I used, the calorie and carb counts were fair. (15g coconut flour, 6g flaxseed)

Cons: I think next time I'll use less coconut flour, more flaxmeal? When coconut flour is on it's own, it can have a bitter taste. If it's distributed with other stuff, it's good.

I like the recipe and will be giving it another go!

kwerp, invest in an iron skillet! They last forever and if you treat it properly, the non-stick never goes away! I have 2 - one small and one large and rarely use anything else.

Hi everyone!

Had to take a break from posting for a while, life got hectic!

B: 2 eggs, HB, 1 TB Mayo, 1 TB MCT oil, slice of extra aged Gouda cheese
L: same as B
D: 3 egg omelette, 2 slices of Gouda cheese, 1TB parmesan grated, chives and parsley

I'm pretty much out of creative ideas at the moment and have so many eggs in the fridge and my BF hardly eats them, so I'm working my way though what's in the fridge!
