Fat Bombs

January 30, 2018 Recipes  No comments

A couple of months ago my doctor decided that I was getting strong enough to try a Ketogenic diet.  This is designed to convince the body to stop burning sugar and, instead, burn fat.  Since the toxins I was exposed to are stored in fat cells, this does double duty of losing weight and getting rid of stored toxins.  It also helps to fuel the brain and repair any damage done to the neurological system.

On this diet, I am supposed to eat only 5% carbs, 25% protein and 70% fat.  (I aim at keeping my carb intake down to 20g per day.  That is equivalent to 1.5 Reeses cups or a half of a medium order of McDonalds fries.  All day!)

It is hard to find that much fat without consuming carbs.   One of the cures is to make and eat fat bombs as a snack.  They are made of healthy fats and no added sugar.

Flax Seed Waffles

June 4, 2016 Recipes  No comments

Since changing to a grain-free diet, I have been trying different types of waffles, both sweet and savory with marginal results.  I finally found these which are very satisfying.  I would say that they even have a better flavor than typical wheat waffles.  The whipped eggs and baking powder combine to give the some lift.

They can be made either sweet by adding some cinammin, or savory by using an herb.  Thyme sounds good.

My wife usually cooks ribs (one of her favorite meals) in the oven with just salt and pepper for seasoning. Since she was away playing with the grand-kids today, I grabbed the ribs from the refrigerator and emptied the spice cabinet!

I like making my own Italian sausage so I have control over the flavors.  It works well with either ground pork or ground turkey.

Cauliflower Pizza Casserole

May 10, 2016 Recipes  No comments

I love pizza!!! That has been one of the hard things about going grain free. Pizza. I could eat it once or twice a day.

Sometimes you just get a need for pizza.

Imagine if a loaded deep-dish pizza had a three-some with baked ziti and a head of cauliflower. Their baby would look something like this. Cauliflower, homemade Italian sausage, pepperoni, veges, three kinds of olives, two kinds of cheese and more.
