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.

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?

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

alane: I've been on THM for 14 months and there is still a detail or two I am not sure about. The book lists 3/4 c quinoa as a serving limit, yet some of the breakfast recipes have 1 c listed. Can you clarify this for me? Thanks!

lynnluce: I have been doing the THM lifestyle for 8 months now with great success, for the first 6 months I have had the weight just slid off, lots of energy, and much happier. Now I am tired all of the time, cranky, and can't get rid of my lower belly. Help

steffanie3: alane, you can do 3/4 of a cup if alongside some other foods (including a bit more E fuel) and a full cup if it is the center of the meal like porridge It is a little confusing.

steffanie3: lynnluce, were you maybe losing too quickly? Maybe your body needs some time to heal?

fran: ok I have missed vibes for whey powder? Which ones NOW or Swansons, or Robs?

gaelle: Just noticed the Lifeway Plain nonfat kefir I bought contains 12 sugars!!! :-( Also made the THM pancakes but added an egg beaters thinking it was egg whites. Need to be better at reading labels!

steffanie3: THM, Jay Robb are both on plan. Preferred is a cross-microfiltered whey isolate
Sept 22, 2015 12:12:21 GMT -5
steffanie3: The Lifeway Plain is fine Enjoy it in an E setting. Egg Beaters are ok because they are also non-fat, but they are flavored where plain egg whites will be better You will get there.

htebe: What does JUDD stand for; it was mentioned to a lady who was wondering why she wasn't losing?
Nov 11, 2015 6:23:49 GMT -5
steffanie3: JUDDD has a small mention towards the end of the first book, I think it is a mixing of FP and regular meals by days, but honestly don't recall for sure. It is mentioned for menopausal, stubborn loss mamas.

steffanie3: Welcome back ladies
Nov 16, 2015 15:37:56 GMT -5
singtoangels: So I was just wondering, should I really read up on THM and wait until at least after Thanksgiving or should I try to dive into it now? Those who have stuck with it what do you do?
Nov 16, 2015 16:43:10 GMT -5
htebe: steffanie3 - THAT WOULD BE ME - stubborn, slow losing menopausal
