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?
crazyabt6: Hi! so excited to be here! Have a question about the country biscuit: I tried making it E-style with just the egg whites and it was a flop! I followed the recipe to a 'T' not sure what I did wrong..... Help? :/

daisymae27: i made the mayonnaise in the book, and I really don't like the taste. It leaves such a bitter aftertaste. Any suggestions on how to tweak it to taste better? If not, is there any acceptable ready- made brand?

steffanie3: daisymae27, it is probably the olive oil I like it i something strong as is like a curry chicken salad, but for everyday MCT for the olive or part of it appeals more, avocado or a light olive oil too

steffanie3: Green pea flour could be used in an E setting, if you have a specific recipe asking in above forum we could give it a look payeville

steffanie3: crazyabt6, did you use the homemade flour called for in making in the first step?

steffanie3: gram42can, nope Cheerios would be a no go on THM

steffanie3: perla, I don't have those, but if you post ingredients in a post above we could take a look or other mamas might spot it that do have it. The chatbox questions are easy to miss because they can scroll by without mamas seeing them

solagratia: I'm new and not sure how this this works...new to THM too and have a question. Appreciate any help I can get.

solagratia: I've been doing THM about 2 weeks and I'm starting to loose a bit of wieght but my breath has become strange. I can't smell it but my husband says it's a bit metallic and quite strongly ammonia-like in its smell.
Mar 16, 2015 2:20:04 GMT -5
solagratia: We're concerned since I am nursing our 11 month old. I've had this happen before when I've tried to loose weight while still nursing. But years ago (before my childbearing and nursing days) I lost weight when needed without this side affect.
Mar 16, 2015 2:22:19 GMT -5
solagratia: My mild supply seems fine, but we are concerned about how this could affect the baby or if something is wrong with me. Any thoughts anyone? Thanks

steffanie3: solagratia, it sounds like you are in ketosis are you mixing up your fuels well? If you would like you can post a few days menus in a thread above and the ladies are great about helping make suggestions

Dutchi: Is there a limit for how much almond milk you can use in a meal...any category? For example...can I use 1.5 cups of almond milk in a smoothie with whey and berries and still have it be a FP? I find the ice waters down the flavour too much for my liking.
Mar 17, 2015 12:36:37 GMT -5
Dutchi: I bought some whey powder at the bulk food store. Most recipes call for 1 scoop. Can you tell what 1 scoop would equal...1 tablespoon...2 tablespoons?
Mar 17, 2015 13:14:00 GMT -5
steffanie3: Dutchi a cup and a half can work specifically in that example, typically it is good to stick to a serving is a good idea
Mar 22, 2015 15:50:58 GMT -5
steffanie3: You might have to check with the store to be sure, a typical scoop is 1/4 to a 1/3 but they can vary a bit. For protein you do want a whey protein isolate, cross-microfiltered preferred.
