Making Chocolate
0

9 posts in this topic

I just ordered some organic cocoa butter to make my own chocolate. I am going to try this recipe.

http://www.precisionnutrition.com/chocolate-making

I think that this will be great b/c I need to be dairy free. Has anyone done anything like this?

Thanks!

Wow, I hope it works. Seems like I don't see coconut oil in commercial chocolate. I wonder why it's in the recipe? Did you get raw cocoa?

I'm dairy-free too but I just buy 70% dark chocolate at the store. :lol:

Yes, I bought raw cocoa. It's from a company in Venezuela. Tisano is the name of it.

What brand of chocolate do you buy? I'd like to check it out to see if it would work for me just incase this doesn't work out!

I'll post back after I make it this weekend! Wish me luck!

The one I was eating while I was trying to see if I was reacting to soy was Fearless brand Dark as Midnight and I really liked it. http://www.fearlesschocolate.com/2010/ I was getting the bars at Whole Foods. Theo also has soy-free organic chocolate. I can't remember whether I tried it or not but here's the site. https://www.theochocolate.com/store/ Happily I'm only needing dairy-free so I'm back to buying whatever high-quality dark chocolate is on sale and not worrying about the soy lecithin.

Thanks for the info!

Well I made the chocolate. It turned out great! It's really really good and very easy! Now I just need to break some into pieces for some chocolate chunk coconut flour cookies!

Thanks for posting that muffin recipe in the whats for breakfast thread. I didn't even know that coconut flour existed. I bought some after reading that post and I have been making all kinds of stuff. I made blueberry muffins last night. It was my first one in 3 years! So... thanks!!

Cool! So glad to hear the chocolate turned out. I might have to give it a try. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Glad you're enjoying the coconut flour too. I have been really happy with coconut flour baked goods. It's so easy and I love how they turn out.

    • Hi Alok, I suggest not eating any soy.  Soy is one of the top 8 food allergens in the USA.  Soy has other things about it that are not helpful to us.  Plus it is often sprayed with pesticides that are not so great for people.  Maybe you can try some other food for a while?  Also it might help to wash all your vegetables before using them. Just some ideas, I hope they help.
    • What she said!     The antibody panel is an important part of follow-up!
    • I have Celiac, Hashi's thyroid disease, Sjogren's Syndrome and Reynaud's Syndrome.  All have gotten better, inflammation wise, after 11 years gluten free.  I am very strict with my diet, never take chances if I feel the food is not really gluten free and limit the number of times I go out to eat.  I am not saying I never go out but it is normal for my husband and I to not see the inside of a restaurant for 3-4 months at a time and then I only eat at the places that have never glutened me.  I am lucky in that the state I live in has 3 restaurant chains that are run/owned by Celiac's, so they get it right every time. You have not been gluten free for very long, in reality.  It took me three years to completely rid myself of all symptoms related to the disease.  I was 46 at the time of diagnosis.  I know it is hard to accept that healing can take that long but you have to measure it differently.  Looking back, you should feel better than you did a year ago.  As time goes on, healing slowly takes place until you realize that certain problems have disappeared.  It is not as cut and dried as taking an antibiotic for an infection. http://www.drweil.com/drw/u/ART03424/Elevated-Creactive-Protein-CRP.html  Read this article on elevated c reactive protein. It is by Dr. Weil, who is a Harvard trained physician who chose to go the more natural route to healing people.  All his stuff is interesting.  Yes, your elevated level will most likely come down, as you heal better.  Pay attention to it but don't let it freak you out too much! 
    • Hi Calla, I think the safe answer is 12 weeks on gluten for a blood test.  I am pretty sure they say 2 weeks on gluten for the gut endoscopy.  But usually people/doctors don't want to  do an endoscopy before a positive blood test, so catch 22 there. There's a chance you still have active antibodies in your blood after 3 weeks off gluten.  But nobody can tell you for sure.  If you can get you doctor to test you now and in 9 more weeks if you are negative now, that might work.  If the doctor is willing to do 2 tests, that would be great. The best thing would have been to do all celiac disease testing before going gluten-free.  But sometimes it doesn't work out that way. The University of Chicago celiac center has an FAQ that answers some of your questions. http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/i-dont-have-the-money-to-get-tested-for-celiac-disease-but-a-gluten-free-diet-makes-me-feel-better-is-it-okay-to-start-the-diet-without-being-diagnosed/ Welcome to the forum!
