I think it worked.

I let it go 24 hours because I like tangy. I checked it this morning and it tastes yogurt-y. It is thin, but should thicken up in the fridge. We'll know tonight for sure.

It was just as thin when I took it out of the fridge after work as when I put it in. I put more gelatin in and its still thin. Why.is.this.so.hard.for.me?

I'm not giving up though. I didn't have enough coconut milk so I added carton almond milk. I got the tang, so that is a step int he right direction. I will try again!

cookies to cereal

I made a recipe of my favorite low carb cookie but somehow it didn't turn out this time. The cookies did not raise but flattened out and were almost runny. I don't want to waste the ingredients so I tried making cereal out of it and it worked great. I had rolled the dough into balls and put them in the freezer. So, I defrosted the balls and then rolled them out on a cookie sheet pan VERY THIN. I baked it in the oven at 350 for 8 minutes and then turned off the oven and left it in the oven for a few hours. By the time I took it out it was brittle. I broke it up and put it in a container in the freezer to use for cereal some day. Happy, happy! :-)

Has anyone tried any new recipes that they love? I'm especially needing chicken dishes that do not have dairy.

I haven't tried this, but I thought it looked good. Any paleo blog will have dishes made with coconut milk. Also you can use a recipe that has cream, substituting canned full fat coconut milk for the cream.

Creamy Pumpkin Chicken Casserole My Heart Beets
3 cups cooked chicken, white and dark meat (I used a whole chicken cut into pieces, see below for details)
1 large spaghetti squash, cooked
1 bell pepper, chopped
1 Tbs coconut oil
1 white onion, roughly chopped
5 garlic cloves, chopped
1 serrano pepper
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ tsp cumin
½ tsp coriander
½ tsp turmeric
Pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
Salt and pepper, adjust to taste
1 can organic pumpkin puree (pumpkin should be the only ingredient)
1 Tbs tomato paste
1 can canned coconut milk full fat
2 eggs, beaten
In a food processor, add onion, garlic, serrano pepper and blend well. Heat oil in a saucepan on medium heat and then add the onion mixture and a pinch of salt. Cook for 7-10 minutes. Add spices and let them bloom for a minute or so and then add tomato paste and pumpkin puree and mix well. Add coconut milk. Stir and simmer for 10 minutes or until the pumpkin puree absorbs the milk. Add cooked spaghetti squash strands and chicken to casserole dish. Pour creamy pumpkin mixture on top. Add egg, mix well and bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes.

I don't know if anyone is interested, but I just saw a recipe for cashew sourdough bread. It's from The Urban Poser and the title is Paleo Grain Free Cashew Sourdough Bread.

Favorite veggie salads

I've been eating a salad for lunch every day. I need to shake things up so I'm not eating the same thing every day and end up with another intolerance. Does anyone have any good veggie combinations for their salads?

I used Brussels sprout leaves instead of lettuce, radishes, red onion with ham.

I sometimes leave lettuce out and just make large chunks of cucumber, radishes, red onion and avocado. Yum!

Any other ideas?

I'm allergic to eggs and wheat, I just found out a few years ago. It makes low carb a lot more challenging when you can't eat eggs! I've been doing protein shakes for breakfast or sausage and veggies hashes. Does anyone have a great no egg breakfast they'd like to share? Thanks!

Hi!

My favorite no-egg breakfast is sauteed cabbage with any kind of breakfast meat (bacon, turkey sausage,et.c.) I also like sauteed yellow squash with zucchini and breakfast meats. The trick is to slice the zucchini very thin and small. I also like dinner leftovers, red cabbage slaw with some kind of chicken.

It's a challenge for sure but you just have to think outside the box. I like shakes, too.

Let us know what else you try.

I don't know if you have read the Viterfiber thread. But you can make your own protein bars mixing the Vitafiber liquid with the protein powder of your choice. I also add coconut oil and nuts, but you can mix in anything you like. There are lots of recipes online. No eggs or dairy necessary. Also if you bake the bar dough, you get cookies. I just made the chocolate chip cookies for a friend who has cancer an multiple dietary restrictions.

BikerAng: I forgot to mention that I made a 'cereal' for breakfast. I use unsweetened coconut FLAKES, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, chia seeds. You can make your own stevia/erythritol sweetened cranberries to add. Coconut milk and then sweetened with stevia or your favorite low carb sweetener.

I also have a couple of muffin recipes that we like. You can find them on this link. They are at the top of the thread.

I'm needing to become a bit stricter with my diet so I can lose some weight. My problem is that I'm eating too much in between meal snacks (seeds, LC treats). I can maintain my weight but I'm not losing. I feel like an addict because I can't imagine going without a treat or two each day because hubby has junk in the house and it's tempting.

Any suggestions besides asking hubby to remove his treats? (ain't gonna happen! *smile*).

I made it for my husband , a couple of weeks ago. I just can't figure out a dairy free cream cheese. I'm still working on it.

I editing because I'm so sick I didn't think Grammy. The daiya cream cheese would work really well. You could use it without cooking. Just cook the bottom cookie. But I've cooked this daiya cream cheese before and it cooks up well.

Thanks, Esther. Did you use coconut milk and whip it instead of whipping cream?

Grammy G, the standard mix is 3 Tbs Vitafiber liquid to 1 scoop (1/3) cup of protein powder. There are hundreds of variations. First you warm up the Vitafiber for 30 seconds in the microwave. Then mix in your ingredients. Now you have a protein bar. Put them in the toaster over for 5-10 minutes and you have cookies. Below is my traveling meal. I use a little extra Vitafiber to incorporate the other ingredients, but you don't have to. The Vitafiber recipes are very forgiving. And every iteration-raw, semi-cooked, cooked until crisp-is delicious. I always add extra sweetener, although some people find it sweet enough without that addition.
Chocolate Walnut Protein Cookies
1/4 cup Vitafiber liquid
1 Tbs coconut oil
Melt in a microwave until it has just started to bubble.
Stir in
1/3 cup protein powder
2 Tbs cocoa
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Pinch of salt
Sweetener to taste
1-2 oz. roasted nuts
I form these into 6 cookies and put them in the toaster oven for 5-10 minutes. I like them when the edges are done, but the middle is still a little shiny. But honestly it doesn't matter. Take them out too soon and they taste like fudge or Tootsie rolls. Take them out later and they taste like biscotti.

Yes Grammy after it got cold I took out the coconut cream from the can. I added sweetner and 1 tsp. of gelatin powder then whipped it until it was done. This process takes about 15 minutes to get whipped coconut cream.

The gelatin is used for stabilizing it.

I did a dairy free version of this Banana Split Cake using coconut high fat cream instead of whipping cream and Daiya cream cheese. I added 2 more Tbsp of sweetener to the crust. It was heavenly and tasted better the colder it got.
