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.

nakona62: Is it ok to have an S dessert right after an S meal, or when do you have your desserts?

stacylynn: linmom - I am sorry that this is so late, but for next time, try dipping your meat in mayo and "bread" it with nutritional yeast and spices. YUMMY! Chicken is especially taste-y prepared this way.

stacylynn: nakona - Sure! : I find if I eat my dessert directly after a meal, I don't want to graze. It works for me!

corleygrammy: Is it ok to have 100% natural, no preservatives, no added sugar, no fat corn tortillas on plan?
May 5, 2015 13:20:24 GMT -5
stacylynn: corleygrammy: I stay away from corn tortillas, because I associate corn with the fattening of cattle. There are some other low carb tortilla choices that would better suit weight loss. I often use Joseph's Pitas in place of tortillas. Best wishes!

steffanie3: You can use corn tortillas on occasion if you want to, there are sprouted ones that would be an even better option if you go that route. You could see how you do, I personally use low-carb options as well

steffanie3: sms, don't get overwhelmed Some new ladies prefer to stick to all S one day then E the next until they feel more comfortable, but you are free to jump in and switch back and forth as you menu plan as long as your meals/snacks are three-ish hours apart.

natcr3w: Foran e meal can I have oatmeal with 1 slice of sourdough bread with t.of butter?
May 15, 2015 8:13:56 GMT -5
steffanie3: meemee if you use a full tbsp of Polaner it can be, you could add some more E fuel to it if you like and are struggling to get in Es
May 18, 2015 13:20:01 GMT -5
steffanie3: natcr3w, that works just fine for E You do want your sourdough to be whole grain to be on plan and your oats to be not instant.
