loved it, but i made a crust with almond flour, didn't realize it had carbs, i tripled it for the whole pie, 3 cups almond flour and 3 eggs whites did i cross over???, i didn't eat a ton but how does that change recipe???
Can't answer your question sorry, but wanted to just add my family loves this one also! And with a family of 9 (6 of which are boys) it's nice to make a meal and not have to triple it. Add a salad and they are good to go!
No, it didn't crossover. But the recipe is already a very heavy S, a super cal meal. The addition of the almond flour, ups the cals even more. Growing boys and men could handle the cal load more frequently. If it stalls you, eat a smaller amount or have it more rarely.
My family loved this recipe as well and we even had a little left over for my husbands lunch the next day. He has requested it again but I told him he is gonna have to wait a bit as it is too rich for me too eat frequently
We had this for the first time tonight, for dh and children I served it with baked potatoes, plus we all had cucumbers from the garden. Everyone loved it, I just hope they forget about the one piece left over lol
My whole fam loves this too! We have a family of 7, and SOMEtimes there is one leftover piece, but we make it with only 2lbs of beef. So so yummy. we add veggies and salad too, and no one even looks for carbs...yay for fat!
Made this tonight for my family of 3 and I cut in half only using 1 lb ground beef and I also used half & half instead of heavy cream ( waiting on my book to arrive) - I'm not sure if that will make a huge difference in the taste- but it was really good! We had a side salad and it was just right. Can't wait to try other recipes when my book arrives and get a grasp on the plan!
Does anybody else get an upset stomach after eating it? Every. single. time. I eat it I get acid indigestion and sick to my stomach. It doesn't affect my husband like that though, he eats half of the dish lol. I half the recipe because there is only three of us including out 18 month old.
lovelea: I stalled after losing 20 pounds just like the book says So I am now doing the fuel pull cycle for the first time

missyhi: Is drinking oolong tea ok when pregnant?

steffanie3: missyhi, if you are uncomfortable with something it is always good to ask your healthcare provider, Oolong is the type of tea served at most Chinese food restaurants

steffanie3: I drank a bit in pregnancy but not large quantities because of caffeine and not with my prenatal because I read teas can inhibit folic acid absorption, which for me was easy because I took them at night anyway and wasn't having caffeine then

babutler: Love the recipes in the book. My husband even likes most of them. If I could just stay on plan at work. It's hard because I am a nurse and work 12 hour shifts. I do ok until 4 or 5 start looking for something to eat.

gs3691: Any good ideas on cooking with quinoa? I tried only once, and I was not pleased with the outcome.

wrapmama14: I love quinoa in soups, add to chili's or broth soups for a more filling high protein meal. I love it but it is bland by itself.

steffanie3: I like it cooked in broth

maggiewonders: Quinoa mixed in with steel-cut oats makes a rockin' breakfast cereal. Wisk a half scoop protein powder w/almond milk & pour over, and then add whatever flavorings, sweetener, toppings - my usual is berries/yogurt/and a sprinkling of chopped walnuts.

shannonlynn: Does anyone have suggestions for a syrup that work on the plan? I originally ordered the Ali's All Natural they suggested in the book, but it is not available anymore. I tried a recipe from Pinterest, but wasn't happy with the taste.

steffanie3: Nature's Hollow makes some syrups (and other things) with xylitol, netrition.com carries them as probably other places online

wannabeold: Is there an error in the Best Macaroon Cookies recipe? They were very dry.

steffanie3: I haven't made zucchini fritters Sophia, I think fritters are typically pretty good sized (deck of cards maybe).
Jul 5, 2014 22:35:50 GMT -5
steffanie3: I don't see a correction on the Macaroons, but I do add a bit more egg whites if they don't seem wet enough to stick together I really enjoy those.
