Thanks! She was super easy to train. Corgis are #7 on the "dog intelligence" scale. We always say she has a rich intellectual life. Best dog I have ever had and full of moxie.

Here's one of the recipes I have made:

Gluten Free Waffles

By E Bennet food.com

Yield: 5 waffles

About This Recipe

1 cup rice flour
1/2 cup potato starch ( NOT Potato Flour)
1/4 cup tapioca flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup oil
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups buttermilk ( regular milk or coconut milk works, too)
1 teaspoon sugar or sugar substitute equivalent

Directions

Mix all ingredients together with a whisk, and pour into waffle iron, in batches.
Add a bit more milk if too thick or a bit of rice flour if too runny.
Can be made without eggs, if necessary; just add a little more liquid to make up for them.

The picture you painted brings tears to my eyes. I love the Hello Kitty Cups part. I really wish I had that sense of community in my life. It is very hard in our very busy world. I started a women's retirement club that meets monthly, and I feel that it is a very good bonding experience. I wonder what they would say if I suggested making some origami birds and drinking wine out of Hello Kitty cups as one of our monthly activities? I think it would be a hoot. We could throw in a few tablespoons of RS in the mix.

Yes, Richard is on the edge. And for some reason I have noticed that some of the Paleo women are so aggressive, borderline mean-spirited. Which is why I don't post on MDA.
But, Tatertot is different, such a genuinely nice and concerned fella.

Oh, Bev, please do this and let us know how they like it! I have a group of bff's that would think this is grand.

Everyone, I couldn't take my mind off of the pancakes, so I made the pancakes and they were UNBELIEVABLE! So yummy! I did not have pumpkin, so I subbed 1/4 apple grated and 1/2 zucchini grated, 3 egg yolks, 1 egg white, a dash of cinnamon mixed with truvia. YOU have to try this!

Today's menu~

Apple/Zucchini Pancakes
1 oz of liver (drowned in hot sauce)
247 cals

Caesar Salad w/ 3 sardines, tomato, 1/2 avocado, & romaine. 1 tbsp of caesar

1 Gold Yukon, 1 cup of BB
(help me decide on dessert!) I have 250 cals remaining.

Another one I have made:

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Muffins
by King Arthur

Spicy, moist, and fluffy — these are a perfect breakfast muffin.

Note: you must use a stand mixer or electric hand mixer to prepare the batter for these muffins; mixing by hand doesn't do a thorough enough job.
The recipe calls for KA mix which uses a stablized brown rice. They said you can sub white rice but the product might be grittier than using the stablized brown rice. I used the white rice and thought it was fine, but all taste buds are different!

3 large eggs
2 tablespoons molasses
1 can (15 ounces) pumpkin purée
1 3/4 cups rice flour blend*
1 cup sugar equivalent ( I used Erythritol plus EZ Sweetz drops)
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1/2 cup soft butter
*See recipe for this blend below.

Directions

1) Preheat the oven to 375°F. Grease a 12-cup muffin pan, or line the pan with papers, and grease the papers.

2) Whisk together the eggs, molasses, and pumpkin purée. Set aside.

3) Whisk together the gluten-free flour or brown rice flour blend, sugar, baking powder, xanthan gum, salt, and pumpkin pie spice.

4) Add the soft butter, mixing with an electric mixer until evenly crumbly. The mixture will look like coarse sand.

5) Add the egg mixture a bit at a time, beating well with an electric mixer after each addition. Beat for 1 to 2 minutes, until the mixture is fluffy.

6) Scoop the batter into the prepared pan, mounding the cups full. The batter will rise above the level of each cup; that's fine.

7) Let the muffins rest for 10 minutes.

8) Bake the muffins for 22 to 25 minutes, until the middle springs back when lightly touched. Remove from the oven and let rest for 5 minutes before removing from the pan. Best served warm.

Yield: 12 muffins.

*Make your own flour blend

The following make-at-home blend, featuring stabilized brown rice flour, works pretty well when substituted; and it tastes better than a blend using regular brown rice flour.

Whisk together 6 cups (32 ounces) King Arthur stabilized brown rice flour; 2 cups (10 3/4 ounces) potato starch; and 1 cup (4 ounces) tapioca flour or tapioca starch. Store airtight at room temperature. Note: You can substitute white rice flour for the brown rice flour if you like; it'll make your baked goods grittier (unless you manage to find a finely ground version).


12 muffins

1 Gold Yukon, 1 cup of BB
(help me decide on dessert!) I have 250 cals remaining.

I noticed that about the aggressive nature of people on that board. I hate that!
You have tempted me on the pancakes. I must try them.

You are doing well!! Can't help you on the dessert because what I want today is cheesecake and that is on my mind!!


~~~
I got my liver pate in with ease yesterday. I cut up my RS'd purple potato (chilled slices) and spread them with the liver pate and topped with a bit of tomato and a slice of red onion. I had that with a small glass of red wine and found it delightful. Don't tell my mom that I found this DELIGHTFUL!! With all the grief I have given her about liver in my life, she would swat me on the side of my head with the back of her hand!! (kidding)

It's also very easy to throw it together yourself if you have access to the individual ingredients. Having a mix is certainly convenient, but making your own mix up is not time consuming at all. I LOVE TJs for so many reasons.

I know, Bev! Right? I said the same thing to my husband, that it made me want to cry because I could never imagine that sense of community for myself.

I'm not sure if it was Hello Kitty cups but there was definitely something Hello Kitty-related in the mix. The way they ladies were joking was just so endearing and heartwarming. It showed them later being part of some local festivities--a children's race--and it was incredible to see all of the generations together, etc.

We went to Tokyo last year and saw some of this in various festivals too. Very interesting!

Bev, For Mother's Day, you should write something in her card about..."Remember when you used to make me liver? and remember how I despised it? Well, something happened..." I bet that would bring a big smile to her face!

Well I wondered about that. When I researched Paul's site on weight loss he said to have a minimum of 400 cal carb, 300 cal protein and to get the rest from fat not to exceed 1200. But yes, I definitely can lower the fat. My weight dropped .2 but if I can keep it from rising right now, I'm ok. I've dropped 2 dress sizes since I started in March even though I've only lost 8 lbs. I feel so much better and the stamina is up so I'm on going.

I have confidence that this will work for you! Did you find Scooby's Workshop TDEE calculator? I think you can have a bit higher than 1200, but 1200 will get you going faster!

Think about one of the largest online sites that is named after a river in South America. We can't link it, but you will be able to find all things healthy there.

I may need to take a day off or two from drinking RS. I feel as if I could pop and that is being generous!

Does anyone else feel this way? I could barely eat my lunch. Really did not have the appetite. Is this good? I hope so.

Do you know if this is good for diabetics? I am a low carb girl trying this potato hack and hack it is. I have not even BOUGHT a potato let alone COOKED one in years My DD is a type 1 diabetic and worry about buying those gluten free flours that have a lot of carbs. But should I even worry when I cannot get her to stop eating fruit Her diet is more complicated than mine, I believe. Anyway, I would love to try this. We just got a Trader Joes in the area.

Have you ever seen the documentary "Happy," Dawn? It's on Netflix and Amazon Prime free videos and maybe Hulu. It's fascinating and it talks about how we all have a baseline for happiness, or a propensity to be happy or unhappy regardless of good or bad circumstances. One part of the film documents Okinawa and they show all of these older 90+ ladies gardening, laughing together, making origami and sipping from Hello Kitty cups. I just loved it and it actually made me sad that I wasn't and could never be an Okinawan centenarian. LOL The sense of community there is awe-inspring.

I have seen something of the sort. That is what I envision my mother-in-law's life like. My DH told me last night that his aunt was going to bring us there this summer. Won't that be a hoot? My kids are so excited, but cautionary. She told us we would go last year and she was not well enough to travel--DH insisted that we not go if she was not going. Tore the kids up, broke their little hearts Anyway, cannot wait to see if we go over there. Oh, talk about community---they have it in droves over there. Simply amazing and you will NOT find that over here. Probably because everyone is related to everyone in some fashion

Oh, I hope you get to go! We can't wait to go back to Japan and just loved it last year, even though we went when it was hotter than Hades. Everywhere we went people apologized to us because it was so hot. That cracked us up.

We were talking about too much of a good thing regarding certain greens and I found this table at anouther site recommending rotating your greens families on a two week basis. I thought it was nice that we don't have to rotate daily to avoid toxicity which is easier on the grocery budget. So go ahead and enjoy spinach in your smoothy for a couple weeks, then switch to something in a different family.

Plant Family - Vegetable Greens

Brassicaceae/Cruciferae - Kale, collards, arugula, turnip, cabbage, bok choy, radish greens, mustard greens, broccoli

Amaranthaceae/chenopodiaceae - Spinach, chard, beet, lambsquarters

Asteraceae - Dandelion, leaf lettuce, romaine lettuce

Apiaceae - Parsley, cilantro

Thanks, Sunday. It falls in line with the seasonal eating woe.

Here is a question for the masses. How important is presentation to your daily woe? I find that as I explore new foods, I am finding some new flavor profiles that I enjoy but often I wouldn't even think of serving them to someone else. I put them in my people chow catagory. Wholesome but not pretty. What about you?

Cici, I will have to admit that presentation doesn't mean anything, if I make it. Now, if someone else cooks, that is a different story.

Anyone else having trouble eating? I can't eat dinner. Yesterday, I was able to eat pretty much as planned. And I feel like I ate a buffalo. I am stuffed.

Thanks you for posting that. Now that I don't eat much sugar, I need to find some sweet things in life and that clip did it for today. And it was non-caloric!

Does anyone else feel this way? I could barely eat my lunch. Really did not have the appetite. Is this good? I hope so.
I do not feel that way, but I am not taking as much as you. I feel satiated, but not overly full. I don't like that overly full feeling at all, but not having the desire to eat is a good thing, in my book, unless you can't get your proper nutrients in.

Tore the kids up, broke their little hearts Anyway, cannot wait to see if we go over there. Oh, talk about community---they have it in droves over there. Simply amazing and you will NOT find that over here. Probably because everyone is related to everyone in some fashion
Oh I hope you can go!!!

So go ahead and enjoy spinach in your smoothy for a couple weeks, then switch to something in a different family.

Plant Family - Vegetable Greens

Brassicaceae/Cruciferae - Kale, collards, arugula, turnip, cabbage, bok choy, radish greens, mustard greens, broccoli

Amaranthaceae/chenopodiaceae - Spinach, chard, beet, lambsquarters

Asteraceae - Dandelion, leaf lettuce, romaine lettuce

Apiaceae - Parsley, cilantro
Thanks. I find that very helpful and makes me feel better about eating the greens. I will have to look up lambsquarters!!

Here is a question for the masses. How important is presentation to your daily woe? I find that as I explore new foods, I am finding some new flavor profiles that I enjoy but often I wouldn't even think of serving them to someone else. I put them in my people chow catagory. Wholesome but not pretty. What about you?
I am the same way. I like my presentation to others to be very nice, but I don't care if it is for me or not.

________________
Well I guess the rush has hit. Two Sprouts stores were out of potato starch today. I have enough, but thought since I was going I would get a backup bag. Not to be had.

BUT>>> I did hit the Motherlode with the watercress. I finally got some. I also got a loaf of Johann's gluten free bread. It is yummy and tastes even better than the bread I have been baking and way way easier. Today I had a lovely sardine sandwich with Kerrygold butter and watercress. I also got an orange cauliflower and a purple one. Can't wait to make those. I love colorful foods. I have a thing for the purple potatoes. They are so deeply purple.

My BFF and I went to a gluten free bakery here to get a cake for her DH's birthday. Holy cow, a 10" cake cost $90!!! Must be made of golden potato starch! Or some pretty fancy decorating going on. Heck, I might go into the business! A loaf of rosemary bread is $11.00. But people were clammoring to get stuff at this store. I try to limit my gluten free products because they can be triggers for me, but this place makes one heck of a delicious rosemary bread. And a pat on the back for myself as I got out of the stores without buying any chocolate bars.

WOE: NK
Start Date: January, 2013
Sunday, today was much better. Ended up 60% f, 25% c, 15% p
Totals 1259 calories, 84 g. fat, 80 g carb, and 47 g protein
Menu:
B / BB, egg salad w/ whole egg + 2 yolks, 1/2 c beets
L / Potato salad w/ 2 potato, 1 T mayo and 1 T bacon fat, beets
D / 3 oz chicken livers sauteed in co. 1/2 cup potato salad
S / Big Red zero w/hwc

I might have a problem with RS. Due to stomach surgery a thousand years ago, I have the capacity to hold about 2/3 of a normal stomach. That's why I had such a problem with NK. The great amount of meat and fat was necessary for weight loss and I was miserable most of the time. Maybe I can drink RS right when I get up and before bedtime.

Still it's all very encouraging on the health aspect. I'm definitely putting weight loss on the back burner for a while. Still sticking to 1200 or so calories. I don't have all my right foods. Going to try to ferment veggies next week. But I need try to make my own mayo and maybe order some stevia. One day at a time.

Anyone else having trouble eating? I can't eat dinner. Yesterday, I was able to eat pretty much as planned. And I feel like I ate a buffalo. I am stuffed.
I added the Hi-Maize to my kefir last night. I used two heaping tablespoons, and after I drank it down, I realized, uh-oh, what did I just do?

But it is OK. So far, anyway.

The stuff smells like...corn torillas and tastes very mildly of it too, but it is starch. It does not make the kefir exciting or anything. I thought maybe it would, since the Hi-Maize doesn't have that weird squeaky feeling to it. I also added one scoop of green drink powder from Trader Joe's to it.

What does, however, is pouring a little regular milk (just a small amount) over the kefir. Wow, that was like crack. It was the hit of sweet and then sour I guess. I didn't stir. I am maybe going to make it today just on the kefir. I'm experimenting with a new hack.

So, this morning I forgot to add potato starch to the kefir and ended up hungry. At noon, I added it, and this afternoon - no hunger. I skipped my afternoon kefir I was planning to have. I do feel *full* too!

I did add a scoop of red drink powder to it. In looking at the label I think it might be overkill on antioxidants. I think I will just use a teaspoon tomorrow.

Walking up hill was really easy this morning. No hip pain. I do wonder if there is something to the milk cure.

I think it was the Hi-Maize last night at dinner coupled with the potato starch at lunch that is making me feel so full.

I realize this is not PHD, I am just answering on resistant starch.
