One of our all-time favorite desserts... So perfect with ice cream warm out of the oven. I made some last night for hubby, and ate my choco pudding while he had his apple crisp. A little hard... :-(
Is there *any* way to make this work? Seems to me impossible without going into crossover territory, or just plain cheating if I want a nice crunchy top which is only achieved with a good deal of butter. Even plan approved ice cream and sweeteners still stump me as to what category this would be in.
There is a baked apple recipe in the book which would be similar, but not quite the same, I know. The topping is the hardest. You could try slicing an apple, and making a low fat sauce with water and flavorings like lemon juice, stevia, cinnamon, maple flavoring, or whatever you like, and thickening it with glucomannan. Then you could take just a bit of rolled oats and mix in 1 tsp of melted butter and whatever spices you like, and sprinkling that on top of the apples and sauce. Bake it until it's done, and you could have it with some Tummy Tucking Ice Cream. I would hold off the 1 tsp of added cream in the ice cream though - it works fine with only almond milk. Or you could have it with nonfat Greek yogurt, which is delicious also. This is E, of course. It has a bit more carbs than I think a regular E snack/dessert would have because of the extra oats, but depending on the amount you used it's not too much more. It should be fine I think if you have it say after a Fuel Pull meal, or just make sure it's been about 3 hours since your last meal. It could be your E "meal." Anyway, not exactly a real recipe, but it's an idea.
Emily, I think that's a good idea. Maybe toast the oats on a cookie sheet like making granola to get them REALLY crunchy and top the baked apple AFTER baking, right before serving. If you aren't a purist, maybe you could even toast the oats in the microwave like joseph's pitas?

Found this on plan to eat on a paleo board but edited slightly to make plan approved. Haven't tested it but you could try it! 3 cups apples sliced or chopped 1 Tbs almond meal or other s approved flour or starch stevia of choice 1 tsp cinnamon 1/8 tsp salt 1 Tbs water 1/2 cup oats 1/4 tsp salt 1/4 tsp coconut oil or other dairy-free oil or shortening Directions | Numbered...
Preheat oven to 375.
Grease a 9x9 casserole dish with oil or shortening.
Combine apples through water in a bowl, and pour into casserole dish.
Combine oats through coconut oil in a small bowl with fingers, until mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle on top of fruit.
Bake 35 minutes, or until fruit is bubbly.

steffanie3: natcr3w, that works just fine for E You do want your sourdough to be whole grain to be on plan and your oats to be not instant.

kimlopez: Would the Earth Milk be OK to drink during pregnancy. I love it and just wanted to make sure. I'm assuming yes since "the shrinker" is on the list but just thought I would ask.

stacylynn: What do you think about doing the fuel pull weeks continually? It seems to be working and I don't want to mess up again!

stacylynn: Oops! Fuel pull weeks should have been Fuel Pull Cycle in my aforementioned comment...I need more sleep!

steffanie3: Yes kimlopez, some mamas cut back a bit on the Oolong for caffeine and/or folic acid absorption, I personally drank mine a different time of day than my prenatal. I did make it with pregnancy tea as well and enjoyed it very much that way

steffanie3: stacylynn you want to take a break, you can do three weeks but then I think you want to break for a month. I would have to check on the time I think it is a few weeks to a month in between.

steffanie3: meemee you could us the grilled chicken breast in an E, but you would want an E fuel with it for an E. We don't have CFA, but I think I have seen mentioned they have a fruit cup or some kind of fruit option (maybe a salad with fruit) so you could do that
May 30, 2015 1:23:56 GMT -5
steffanie3: for your E fuel alone the breast would be FP

steffanie3: lindah60 Welcome I think you will find THM very compatable with your diabetes, one thing you might find is you need to do more of a "pulled back E", basically lighter on the E fuel (on plan carbs) to help your blood sugars stay stable. You might also

steffanie3: have a little bit of a journey to find out what time of day works best for your E meals, my friend likes them earlier in the day since she can do a bit of excersize since that helps her levels stay in a good range (she is type 2) though.

steffanie3: A walk after an E lunch or breakfast seems to work just great for her

lauriebovi: Just starting on this plan. Well I've been starting for a while now. Anyone have a really hard time staying on? I have no issue with what I'm eating. I feel like I'm just lazy and fall into old habits. any advice or personal experience?
Jul 16, 2015 16:45:08 GMT -5
steffanie3: lauriebovi, a menu plan really helps me even if it is just a daily plan so I kind of know what I will be eating through the day with snacks and meals. Also for me prepping ahead is a super helpful, having a large batch of something to grab when needed
