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.

robbiesnest56: Do you make the ice cubes out of whole fat and low fat coconut milk so you have both options? Are they both S?[br]

ggwells: Ok new to the site. Want to keep it simple. I understand not to mix high fat with carbs. I love having eggs for breakfast sometimes. So can I have egg burrito with bacon. Then have to S meals for lunch and dinner?

steffanie3: All coconut things are best thought of as S, but you could use a small amount for FP robbiesnest56

steffanie3: ggwells, if you purchase some low-carb tortillas you could have a S meal and enjoy burrito. For how it effects lunch and dinner on THM you simply need to wait three hours before you next meal and switching fuels

stacylynn: Help! What type of snack do I get when I mix a (green) golden delicious apple with a (1 oz.) slice of cheese? Is this a cross-over?
Sept 7, 2014 19:15:37 GMT -5
steffanie3: An E, the cheese is pretty close to your tsp of added fat in an E

stacylynn: Got another one for you: Zone Bar with 210 cal; 7 g fat; 23 carbs (eek!); 3 g fiber; 15 gm sugar and 14 gm protein would fall under what category? Mess up? IMA goof-ball? Oops? Really...how do I categorize this poor choice?

steffanie3: Probably a start again in three hours Or off plan
