I just peaked at the link and the recipes look intriguing. I think I may try a few this week. An E salad has not happened since I usually do not like LF or FF dressings. It would be nice to find one I enjoy.
Thanks, ladies. Some good ideas. I think I'll try one of the dressings at the link itsgwen posted. I just love that she called the post, "Fat-Salad Dressings that don't taste like death". Ha ha -- that's certainly what we're looking for!!
Above Rubies reader since August/94! Wife to Steve (June 29/91), Homeschooling Mama to dd (May/94), ds (June/98), dd (Oct/01), dd (Dec/03), dd (Oct/05), ds (Mar/08), ds (Oct/10), and ds (Nov/12)
My husband loves thousand island so I made a homemade FF version using 1 T mayo and low fat cottage cheese, blendered, with some SF catsup I made frm the book. I added some stevia, dill pickle, minced onion, paprika and vinegar. It turned out very nice. Much better than eating a dry salad or lemon juice n vinegar. I need to make it again so I can put the measurements together so I can recreate it again.
I tried the fat free asian salad dressing last night on my salad and it was yum. I ended up not using the rice vinegar because I didnt realize there was added sugar in it. There were 6 carbs of sugar. So, used the red wine vinegar and only used 1 garlic instead of 2. I also added a teaspoon of sesame seeds for more oriental flair. I also added a little gluccie so it was a little thicker. I think I will use the left overs to dip my turkey mini meatloaves in as they need something. Would be good spread on chicken, too.
I used the base of the Hip Trim Honey Mustard but did this: Instead of the 2 tbs mustard or whatever it was, i used maybe 1 tsp of dijon. I added a sprinkle of Italian herb blend, and a bit of parmesan cheese. I added a bit of fresh onion (maybe 1 tbs) and 1 small garlic clove. Instead of 1/4 cup of cider vinegar, I did 2 tbs cider vinegar and 2 tbs lemon juice. Good amount sea salt, good amount pepper, and a scant 1 tsp of truvia.
Whazz all this in your blender and do the glucomannan thingie, as per recipe directions in book. I used EVOO instead of palm oil. It made a really yummy Caesar type dressing. If I'd only had anchovy paste, that would've made it taste really Caesar-y. It was delish.

Hey Gwen, thanks so much for sharing your recipes for the dressing mixes! I made them up yesterday and tried the Greek dressing last night. It was delicious. I will probably keep that one in an S setting, but try the low fat stuff for E on the Ranch.
I was having trouble figuring out a dressing for my E salads. Now I just put Braggs Liquid Aminos on it. Be careful not to put too much on the salad or it will taste too salty. Love it!! I feel like I have finally found a good easy solution
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.
