You could make some E style French toast, using egg whites and Slim Belly Jelly to top it. It's also great to dip in E style soups, make an E style sandwich with lean protein, veggies, mustard if you wish, and some light mayo or a light laughing cow cheese wedge if you're not a purist. I like to use some low fat cottage cheese to make my sandwiches more moist. Actually, cottage cheese on toast is delicious, either sprinkled with sea salt and black pepper, or with slim belly jelly on top for a sweet version. Those are some of my favorite ways.
O.k. so, my daughter made the soudough starter. I mixed up our first batch of bread today. It's been sitting on the counter rising for almost 5 hours now. And it has barely risen at all. Does this mean we didn't catch enough wild yeast? I plan to bake it in a couple more hours. Hoping we don't have bricks! :-)
I baked the first 3 loaves, ( there were 6), last night. They did end up rising almost double.Took the first out after baking about an hour. It was still gooey inside and stuck to the pan. I baked the others another hour or more. They rolled out of the pan and were not so gooey. The other 3 I left overnight and put in the oven at 4:30 this morning. Don't know how they turned out. (I am gone with my husband today, and they were still in the oven.) They did turn out very heavy... maybe our starter will sour more, I think maybe the dough was too wet....
My newbie question: Have made SD bread weekly for past couple of years. Is it okay to continue with that recipe (starter - flour (sometimes a mix of different ones) - salt - water - sometimes yeast for added fluff - sometimes seasonings/add-ins like olives & herbs, etc) - - or must I modify to factor in something important for compliance sake?
THMfan I could not remember where I had read about warm roasted garlic on sourdough bread, it was YOU! Thank you for that suggestion, it is so amazingly good!
You can still use your sourdough recipe as long as you're not using white flour (processed from the store) for the majority of the recipe. Just make sure you allow the 7 hrs (at least) rise time. Some add in's will be fine, just be aware the olives are a higher fat food & might push the fat amount per slice a bit high, depending, of course, on how much you use.

mandy140: I have a question about Whey Protein Powder. I read Serene's article on Whey, friend or foe? I checked Swanson's web site and there are so many Whey Powders there I can't find the one Serene recommended; the CFM. How do I know which it is? Thanks.

farmerblacks: I did THM for a few months and loved it. I got away from it when I had to have 2 surgeries in 6 weeks. I would like to get back to it, but now my husband has to be on a low sodium diet. Are there any THM families that also do low sodium?
