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: Broth based soups are great for this time of year and a FC I did a modified "cabbage soup diet" soup with some boneless skinless chicken for protein, I just searched for an online recipe and left out some things if I remember right, I love cabbage

grammalynda: if there isn't a reply button on a thread (too old maybe?) should I start a new thread for that subject?

steffanie3: Hmm, on the upper right as long as you are logged in there should be a reply button, but you sure can start a new thread if you want

grammalynda: I figured it out-when you do a search it takes you to the conversation-there is not a reply button-but the name of the thread is listed above the date and if you click that it takes you to the thread and the reply button. thanks stefanie3 and rebekahrl

glammom: Any suggestions as to where to purchase MCT oil? All new stuff to me. Purchase many items for plan on-line, some at Kroger, some at Trader Joes and Whole Foods. Any suggestions of locations to purchase MCT oil at brick and mortar stores?
Dec 11, 2014 15:03:23 GMT -5
steffanie3: GNC would likely have MCT or a health food store that carries Now Brand, that is one easy to find kind.

ttate53787: I have been put on a low residue diet. I am only allowed to eat refined grains. In order to follow this plan now would I just have to give up all breads? Any guidance on this type of diet? Thanks.

steffanie3: I haven't heard of a low residue diet, maybe make a post of a suggested menu you have been given and we could help?

Bryony: After numerous attempts at baking with coconut flour my husband and I just do not like the taste but especially the texture of it. Is there something else I can use in the recipes to replace the coconut flour?
Dec 19, 2014 12:19:20 GMT -5
steffanie3: It depends on the recipe Bryony, is there a certain one you have in mind? Almond flour and oat fiber are used in many yummy baked goods.
Dec 19, 2014 15:07:27 GMT -5
Bryony: Basically all recipes Steffanie. I have so many I would like use. Are almond flour and oat flour and/or oat fiber interchangeable with coconut flour?
Dec 19, 2014 16:01:07 GMT -5
steffanie3: Not really, coconut flour is quite different as it absorbs lots of liquid and works best with plenty of eggs. I tend to like it mixed with other flours.
