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.

asensenig: Ezekiel Mix: 12 cups Barley; 12 cups Rye or Spelt; 4 cups dry lentils; 4 cups millet; 4 cups dry pinto beans; 3 cups dry soy beans. Another question. Can rye berries be used without sprouting?

steffanie3: I was thinking you meant the store bought Ezekiel which is sprouted. This recipe would not be on plan with the honey.

asensenig: ok. if you substituted another sweetner for the honey, would it be ok?

aecmama: hello! just started the plan and wondering about the Chobani 100 yogurt that is sweetened with stevia and also monkfruit extract (both of which I have already in the house!) Anyone know anything? I've spent awhile searching. Are either of these on plan?
Apr 16, 2014 11:56:59 GMT -5
steffanie3: Can you list the ingredients aecmama?
Apr 16, 2014 13:55:11 GMT -5
steffanie3: Cane juice is sugar and is not on plan, sorry.

steffanie3: Are the grains and beans sprouted asensening?
Apr 16, 2014 16:04:42 GMT -5
aecmama: any thoughts about monkfruit extract as a sweetener?
Apr 16, 2014 16:05:09 GMT -5
steffanie3: "At this time, there is not an official recommendation to use monk fruit, but the early research on monk fruit extract is encouraging." The THM ladies are still researching it. If it were me I would use up what you have then get a stevia extract
