Pearl......I used Hershey's 100% Cacao Special Dark cocoa powder. It did turn out very dark, but it wasn't burned at all. Funny story.........I excitedly told my husband about my yummy breakfast yesterday and showed him the pic on the camera. He looked kind of confused and said that it looked like a big hunk of charcoal. I was like, "What?!?!?". Then I looked at the picture again and realized that what he said was true, it did look like a charcoal briquette. Hahaha!!! Before that, I had just seen the yummy, dark, chocolately, velvetiness of it. ))
Ha ha Andrea. I only thought that because I use the extra dark for my muffins too and that is what they look like. I guess it could look like a charcoal lump but not to me. Great idea on the SBJ, saving some cals instead of butter.

My 20 month old and I just split one of these, yum! The first I made for husband as his before-work snack. He looked at me and said "this is my snack? A brownie?" when I told him yes, and what was in it, he liked it! Though he said it was a bit bland, so the next one I made with a pinch of salt and the teeniest drizzle of vanilla. Much improved!
I've made these twice but can't get them cook all the way through! I used a 4 ounce Pyrex bowl for my "mug" and cooked in a toaster oven at 350. Even up to 12 minutes left most of the inside completely batter-like. Still yummy!!! But I would like to be able to eat it with my hands I don't really have anything ceramic I could use, but do you think that would make a difference? Should I go out and buy ramekins? Or maybe bake at a higher temperature? Other thoughts?
gs3691: Any good ideas on cooking with quinoa? I tried only once, and I was not pleased with the outcome.

wrapmama14: I love quinoa in soups, add to chili's or broth soups for a more filling high protein meal. I love it but it is bland by itself.

steffanie3: I like it cooked in broth

maggiewonders: Quinoa mixed in with steel-cut oats makes a rockin' breakfast cereal. Wisk a half scoop protein powder w/almond milk & pour over, and then add whatever flavorings, sweetener, toppings - my usual is berries/yogurt/and a sprinkling of chopped walnuts.

shannonlynn: Does anyone have suggestions for a syrup that work on the plan? I originally ordered the Ali's All Natural they suggested in the book, but it is not available anymore. I tried a recipe from Pinterest, but wasn't happy with the taste.

steffanie3: Nature's Hollow makes some syrups (and other things) with xylitol, netrition.com carries them as probably other places online

wannabeold: Is there an error in the Best Macaroon Cookies recipe? They were very dry.

steffanie3: I haven't made zucchini fritters Sophia, I think fritters are typically pretty good sized (deck of cards maybe).
Jul 5, 2014 22:35:50 GMT -5
steffanie3: I don't see a correction on the Macaroons, but I do add a bit more egg whites if they don't seem wet enough to stick together I really enjoy those.

goguengal: What fruits are best to eat. I know berries are low glycemic but what other fruits work.
Jul 12, 2014 23:10:17 GMT -5
steffanie3: ajillbee, I honestly have no idea, it would definitely be good to ask your doctor or midwife.
Jul 14, 2014 2:08:57 GMT -5
steffanie3: goguengal, most are just fine in moderation in an E fuel setting

chezza77: can someone explain how and when I eat the certain foods E S, SE, FP. I dont understand and dont want to get it wrong

steffanie3: Chapter 11 in the book kind of pulls this together, stating at page 111 I think most specifically Most mamas switch from one fuel to the other throughout the day, many start with whole days of one fuel though while they get the concepts down

mommom: Confused about E meals. The Egg White Breakfast Buritto is an E meal. If I add a slice of cantelope it now becomes and S. Is that correct? SO, am I suppose to not "mix" my carbs? Fruit with a "bread" even if it is a plan approved "bread"?
Jul 15, 2014 14:51:33 GMT -5
steffanie3: Cantaloupe is an E food, so a slice or two with an E breakfast is a great choice What is in your breakfast burrito, it might need a carb source. Not sure if it would be easier for you to type it up in a new thread above for more room than shoutbox

mommom: spinach and mushrooms, with lean ham or bacon and a "pinch of cheese"
