Topics I've Started

Larabar Ginger Snap

I had one today for the first time. Felt like I was eating something bad. When I feel like I need a treat, these will work. Will not be temped to grab something bad that is glutened or sugary.

If you like ginger cookies and/or close and cinnamon type things. Do not hesitate.

Best unsweeted coconut I have ever had! When I decided to also do the Candida diet..along with every other..I was so excited to hear that I could eat unsweetened coconut because I love coconut and it takes care when I need a sweet treat.

Very fresh and great size pieces for snacking without being chunks..yet not 'flakes'. These really are like they are 'chipped' off. Something to chew on..yet not to chewy.

I could see cooking with these and really having something hardy because the are not flakes.

Easy to snack with due to size.

Coconut Macoroons

29 February 2008 - 08:10 PM

I can't eat very many things right now and was still looking for a healthy way to make something sweet.
Since coconut is so good for candida and I love coocnut..this worked out nice.
So I made these. I like to call them macoroons instead of macaroons..not sure why..lol

One and a half cups sugar free natural shredded coconut.
Three egg whites.
One tsp real almond flavoring.
One tsp Stevia.

Preheat oven to 350.
Mix egg whites and almond flavoring together until there's a slight sheen.
Mix the coconut and stevia together then gradually add to the moist mixture.
Put in fridge for a half hour.

Spoon onto cookie sheet. I just used a regular cookie sheet. Surprisingly didn't even coat it and they didn't stick. Suppose it depends on what sort of cookie sheet you have.
Bake for about 10 minutes until slightly broown.
Don't overcook or they will be dry since these don't have any sweetened condensed milk in them.

I was looking for another way to eat coconut for candida and make something a little sweet too.

For something so simple, these are really good if you like coconut, have no sugar and very little fat or anything really.

You can use vanilla flavoring too, but I find the almond gives it more a deep richer flavor with a kick.

Since this is so basic as far as ingredients go..the key too I think is to use a real flavoring since that's going to be the main taste in these.

I felt guily eating them they were so good..yet no sugar and I am fighting the candida with the coconut.

Gluten Free Name Brands

29 February 2008 - 04:59 PM

I was wondering if in this thread some people..especially the vets..would be willing to name some of the name some of their favorite name brand food items that are gluten free and haven't affected them.
Not stuff that is actually like a gluten free company..but everyday name brand grocery store items.
For instance..I have fallen in love with some of the Humm Foods Larabars. They aren't in the gluten free section. They are in with the regular nutrition bars. I found out about them online then checked my store for them. They are gluten free and contain very few whole ingredients. I love keeping these around for something quick.
For anyone who likes a really healthy nutrition bar..give these a try.
I'm also trying to keep more gluten free things in the house period and not just stuff for me as I am limited..but stuff to keep around for the rest to enjoy that are everyday name brand items..but gluten free. Would make the house so much easier yet not make them think they are eating gluten free to all the time.
One thing too it seems I have noticed is that there are not that many regular shelf gluten free everyday cereals that are healthy too. I think I saw stuff like Fruity Pepples was. The others can't eat a lot of sugar..so that wouldn't work for them.
I am aware that things can change and we always still need to read labels.
Thanks again.
