Want to make your own yogurt but don't want to buy a yogurt maker?

de-yogurt.html


PS: I always drain my yogurt through a large, men’s hanky in a strainer for several hours to get a Greek-style yogurt or even longer for a thick, spreadable yogurt cheese. If I want yogurt cheese I will put the bowl with the hanky-lined strainer on top in the refrigerator for 24 to 28 hours. Gosh this is good! The whey that drips out is good for soaking grains or nuts or you can pour it over your dog's food (so good for them!) or use it in baking or just drink it. It's tasty.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

All you can do is give it a shot. Worst that'll happen is you'll make muffin bricks, like when I substituted peanut butter for the butter (yeah, don't try that LOL).

I wondered the very same thing Laura.

I have been using spelt a lot lately in making bread and I love it. It seems to make things more tender. Maybe because it has less gluten in it--just a guess. I made a rye bread last week that was the best rye bread I've ever made...or even ever tasted for that matter. I used about half & half rye and spelt flour (little more rye than spelt). Super tender crumb and crackly, crisp crust. I'm slowly weaning us from wheat...that is, when we even eat grain at all which is hardly ever now.

Looks yummy. I wonder if spelt would work as well as WW flour. I seem to be able to tolerate spelt on occasion.

ANIDUCK is spot on- fennel (also called anise) does have a very liquorice-like flavor raw. But when roasted, it becomes very savory and is a great accompaniment to the onions & carrots. I don't really care for it raw, but I can't get enough of it roasted!

Hi everyone,
I just wanted to share one of my favorite recipes, so very simple yet so delicious. And I just happen to be cooking up a batch of it now on the grill for tonight's dinner. It is roasted carrots, onions, and fennel. The link is: recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detai
l.
asp?recipe=2139300

No picture yet as they aren't done! I made it 4 servings as I eat it as an entree, but it would easily serve 6 as a side dish.
Thanks to everyone for all the great info and recipes!
Lisa

That sounds really good! I like to take those little taters and steam them with their skins on, then mash slightly with some real butter and garlic. Those skins are the best part. Yum!

Wanted to share the potatoes we've been eating. I had bought 2 small bags of organic nugget potatoes. One red one yellow. I found the recipe on Pinterest, tried it and we fell in love with it. I call them clobbered potatoes. I bake 2 servings (10 potoates) in the microwave until they're mostly cooked..about 5 mins. I sprinkle olive oil on a baking sheet...enough to keep the potatoes from sticking and put the potatoes on the sheet. Then I use a metal spatula and clobber them. They flatten right out. Then I sprinkle more olive oil, crush lots of garlic over them and put rosemary on them as well. Then I bake for 10 mins each side. We are LOVING them!

I planted rosemary and it is growing but we've had a week of straight rain here. Can't wait to get some sun going.....it'll grow pretty quick once we have sun and I'm sure the fresh rosemary will be even better!

I hear ya! I have to be careful about potatoes and bread. If I have it in the house, I eat it till it's gone. I'm actually having potatoes again tonight with dinner, pork chops, but I'm only buying 2 small-medium potatoes. Built in portion control! LOL.

Darn, I wish I could eat more potatoes. As it is I don't have them hardly ever anymore 'cuz of the high glycemic load (starchy carbs). But when I get into the potato mood I'm going to try this one for sure.

Tried a new pinterest recipe last night and we LOVED it! We baked 10 red nugget potatoes, skin on of course until they were almost cooked. Then I smashed them with a spatula, just to flatten them. Put them on a cookie sheet, drizzled olive oil, put some fresh smashed garlic on top, salt and pepper and roasted them. Flipped them halfway through and they were SOOO good with our parmesan crusted chicken. We're making my mom the potatoes again tonight.

I made Coach Nicole's Vegetarian Lentil Loaf last night. It was okay - not spicy enough for me but okay.


The road to success may be hard, but it's always worth the struggle.

This is not a quick fix, but a permanent lifestyle change.

I don't sweat, I sparkle.

I made these the other night. I didn't use cheese though. I did add a LOT of cayenne and an organic, no salt, garlic spice blend I got from Costco. They are yummy!
I think some almond flour would work. I might try that next time.

Tried a new clean recipe last night I found on Pinterest for homemade chicken nuggets. 1 egg for coating, 1 cup Panko bread crumbs, 1/4 c parmesan, 1 tsp paprika, 1 tsp garlic powder. I'll play around with it a bit. Use less bread crumbs for sure and add more heat with spices and probably fresh garlic next time, but it was very good and my daughter loved it. We have cold leftovers for lunch today.

I just made this to have with a chunk of smoked salmon that I got from Azure. Thought I'd just share it it's so yummy. I got it from simplyrecipies.com. I cut it in half since there are only two of us here. But it's so good, and if you eat fish regularly, and if you have more than two in your household I recommend you follow these measurements:

Tartar Sauce

1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup chopped dill pickles
1 teaspoon capers, chopped
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons chopped shallots
2 Tbsp chopped scallions
2 teaspoons lemon juice
6 drops Tabasco sauce or more to taste
Salt and pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.
Makes about a cup and a half of tartar sauce.

My sister made this for me last night - it took 20 minutes and was AMAZING!

TACO SOUP
- 1 pound lean meat (you can use turkey, we used grass fed sirloin beef cut into small chunks
- 1/2 onion
- 2 cans pinto beans
- 1 can black beans
- 1 can corn (can use fresh or frozen, it calls for creamed corn but i dont like that)
- 2 small cans diced tomatoes with green chilies
- 2 cups water
- 1 pacakge ranch seasoning (we used all natural organic)
- 1 package taco seasoning

Brown meat with onions on medium heat, rinse beans, add. Add tomatos, corn, water, seasonings and bring to a boil. Reduce heat - simmer 20 minutes.

I add avacado on top, my husband likes sour cream on top as well.

ENJOY!

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Oh, and thanks for the recipe! Looks yummy.

Sorry girls...I changed the name of my blog and I didn't think about the fact that it would mess up the link. Here is the new link.
It's the same blog, just name change...we had a baby last summer and everyone was asking me when I would change it from 4 Zells because now, we are 5 Zells. I just figured out that I could do the name change without losing my blog, so I did it.

I just posted a recipe on my blog that I adapted from the Eat Clean recipe called "Turkey Loaf to Live By" in the first cookbook. From it, I created Spinach Stuffed Bison Loaf if anyone is interested. You can check it out at the link that I provided. Hope you like it!

I bet you could substitute all or some of the "cream" part with coconut cream (the thick stuff at the top of the can or drained coconut milk you make yourself)

EASY EASY EASY HEALTHY Banana Pudding recipe; only two ingredients. I think kids will love this.
Warning to those of you who are still afraid of fat: this recipe calls for whipping cream.
ps: The Author uses the term "ultra processed" - she meant "ultra pasteurized" which is good to stay away from if you can help it.

I found it on an older Food Renegade "Fight Back Friday" web page. It was one of the links listed there. I often find interesting things on FBF. Have you looked at that one and found anything you like?

Here's a great webpage that tells about the advantages of getting saturated fats back into our diets with links to more in-depth research findings. This ought to be real WOOHOO news to anybody who has been denying themselves of juicy meats, whole eggs, bacon, butter, whole milk, coconut oil and other healthy fat sources.

I always make my own Greek-style yogurt and I go for the full fat variety as it is healthier and better tasting. You are right about using it to replace sour cream. It works pretty good. I also use it to make salads, like chicken and tuna salads; love the tartness.

For dips and anything with sour cream, substitute Greek style plain yogurt.. 2% is creamier than fat free, but both are good... And healthy for the gut!

Clean peanut butter will list only peanuts and possibly salt in the ingredients. Anything else is either totally unnecessary or worse, something bad for you. Good peanut butter also should not be homogenized; it should have some oil on the top that has separated out. You will have to stir it back in.

Make sure the bread says "100% whole wheat" and not just "wheat" which can mean anything. Check out the ingredient list

Jelly is mostly sugar which will do negative things to your body. The best kinds of fruit spreads are called "Spreads" and are made with concentrated fruit juice. Don't kid yourself though, concentrated fruit juice is sugar too but this way you at least avoid the highly refined and processed sugars found in most all jams and jellies. These spread should have only fruit and possibly a thickener like fruit pectin in them. Always read the ingredient lists on the labels to know what you are getting.

Honeymaid graham crackers are pure junk.

Hey, you asked and I hope you are okay with my answers. I love pb&j sandwiches myself but I never eat them anymore. Used to practically live on them--not a good idea.
Best of health to you,
-annie

Thank you! That is the one I thought I had...duh, right there in the team cookbook. I will leave out the Steviva Blend and use coconut syrup instead or honey.
I did Google a few other grain-free granolas; there's a lot of great ones out there to get creative ideas from.

I love crunchy stuff!

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Help! Didn't we have a recipe for a grain-free granola somewhere around here? I'll probably Google for one but I was thinking that Laura had posted one not long ago. Maybe I'm nuts (pun intended!). I can't believe that I don't already have a grain-free recipe in my own files.

I've never had stuffed endive appetizers, I'll have to try that one! The Fresh onion dip made with Greek yogurt will set up thicker after refridgerating if you use coconut oil for carmelizing the onions. I'm afraid it may soften back up if the air temperature is close to mid seventies or up because in the cupboard my coconut oil is solid in the winter but not so solid in the summer. Just eat them fast! lol!

Hey, Thanks! Okay, so it looks like just basic veggies; nothing special. That's great. I would add to all those maybe some jicama and apples--sweet things. I'm not a big fan of raw broccoli but I love bell peppers especially the red and yellow ones. Celery is always a winner.

Lately I've been experimenting with "stuffed" endive. This onion dip recipe might be a great starting off point for a good stuffing. Just got to make it thicker. Maybe I could do that by making the yogurt cheese VERY thick and/or substituting half the yogurt with cream cheese. And then maybe a half a pitted date on top. Hmmmmm

Have you ever had stuffed endive appetizers?
