LOL! Well, I found a way to make do until.......

I put the chia seeds into a sandwich ziplock, put a paper towel underneath as well as one on top & took the hammer, sat down on the kitchen floor & pounded away! LOL! It worked but I don't look forward to doing it on a regular basis.

P.S. You have to make sure all the air is out of the baggie.

What about adding warm water and letting them sit and then food processing them? That's what I did the one time I used them as an egg replacer. I since decided I do not like the gelatinous mess it makes....but soaking them first worked. If your recipe calls for liquid, you could use that liquid. They soak up a lot. :)

This place we're renting the kitchen is so small that I don't want to even bring in a food processor eatmeat. I'm just going to pick up a little coffee grinder & see what happens.

I was very happy though with how the egg yolk-less Belgian Waffles turned out though.smile.gif

Oh, well, I just thought it might work. I use one of those teeny weeny ones that are only good for chopping garlic! Hey! Maybe a mortar and pestle? haha! Let's bring back the old tools! Isn't that what they used before food processors were invented? I guess if all else fails, you know the hammer and ziplock works! Hey! I can use that to flatten some chicken breasts huh?! I've been wanting a meat pounder but maybe you just invented one for me! :)

Yup. that'll work!

You know what else a hammer is good for? You know how when you go to hem jeans one of the side seams is so thick & then you're turning it under twice which makes it a monster? Take the jeans outside to a concrete surface & use your trusty hammer to pound that super thick turned under seam into a manageable, something you can work with thickness.tongue.gif

Nutribullet

http://www.nutribullet.com/

Don't buy it here! Bed, Bath & Beyond, $80 + tax to your door. Anything over $50,

shipping is free. Don't like it? Send it back. Trust me, you will like this!

Easy to clean, rinse well & go, uses a SMALL amount of product, best gadget I

have ever owned and I have them all :)

This dumb thing has CHANGED my life! It's NOT like a blender drink, that's for

sure.

This may not sound so nice but my 350 lb daughter just went for blood work, time

to renew the birth control, or she would never go to a doctor. They always look

her up & down, hum...all the things that could be wrong?! It's what they always

think about us fatties, I just got the same treatment myself! Anyway, the blood

work: We are Paleo as much as we can, but we do cheat with rice. We eat meat like

nobody! I was so worried what these tests were going to revel! I was the one who

was gonna "get it", I do the cooking :(

PERFECT blood work, low everything, no sign of diabetes, no high cholesterol, (boy,

do we eat bacon!) her BP is low as well. The doctor asked her, "What do you eat"?

Well, my mom has been studying and she does the cooking. Rachel cannot eat gluten(no hand lotion either!)

soy, dairy, I bet there are more but these are the triggers. SO, she told this very

open-minded MD about her Nutribullet. That doc actually called her and said she

loved the thing! I KNEW she would go out & buy one. :) I even own a Vitamix,

this little bullet can grind the heck out of chia, flax & hemp! Runs circles around

the Vitamix when it come to grinding seeds. I also do millet, quinoa, among others.

Cheers! Alice

    • Sounded like it's against the law in that state to bring in outside food to any restaurant. A simple phone call to the tavern would have told them that. Prior planning is exactly what was needed here. We don't have the right to break laws, and outside of school and jail, (with the correct paperwork),  we don't have the right to have gluten-free food everywhere we go. I'm shaking my head at the parents and how they dropped the ball here. 
    • Thought I would bring up my most recent addiction. I always loved and had MAD cravings for chocolate. Not the sweet stuff, the powder is always what I craved, the darker the better. This was in part due to extreme anemia, and huge issues with getting enough iron due to internal bleeding issues with UC (I got cravings for dirt and chocolate but would just eat the cocoa).  But I used to have a love hate issues with it, if I ate too much like more then 2 tbsp in a sitting in anything I would get sick and I would do this often eating 1/4 in mixed recipes like a sauce, mixed with egg whites, almond butter, into quick cakes, or in icecream or shakes.. I still am unsure what this was, but the processed gluten-free labeled Hershey Special Dark was the main thing I consumed back then (around this time they did not have the plain Hershey or any other cocoa on the gluten-free list). This went on for a few years and then I moved on to RAW cocoa from Big Tree Farms and this lessened the nausea and sick feeling and enabled me to eat more but I still avoided it when I was not craving it due to it making me sick.  This year funny enough I got my anemia under control with upped vitamin C and finding out what triggered my bleeding flare ups was sugars from fruit, grain carbs, and starches, I found Crio Bru. Crio Bru is a coffee replacement, but it is actually just pure cocoa nibs/beans ground up like coffee ground, they come from different origin sourced beans with different roast levels, from a smokey dark french to lighter ones with smooth or floral notes. These, these I can sit down and grind up in almond milk or in shakes, sprinkle over deserts, mix in trail mixes, eat by the handful....and I  DO NOT GET SICK. I can eat over a cup of them and be very satisfied, they are very high in fiber and saturated healthy fats, antioxidants. and various other nutrients, and smash my binge eats faster then coconut or almonds. I only wish I had found them earlier, but this brought up some other thoughts.  Why does the processed cocoa bother me SO much more then these? Is it the alkalinity of them? The dry powder like state causing them to neutralize to much acid or absorb to much liquid? Or something added in the processing? Perhaps the processed cocoa just has a much much higher histamine level, I do not know but the fact these are so much better and finally my new best friend for putting on weight is amazing. Anyone else have a chocolate issues, chocolate loves, or addictions? Or perhaps thoughts on these?
    • Had a flashback of going on vacation once without enough food, I ended up walking the 5mile round trip to a grocery store to get cartons of egg whites, fresh veggies, and almond milk. I overstock everything now when I go places due to this lol.
    • THANK YOU for the link. Read through the whole thing. Didn't eat for >24 hours and started to feel A LOT better. Still sick, but nowhere near yesterday sick.  I decided to just talk/explain in detail how sick the food made me to one of my relatives who was very understanding. She is going to explain to other relatives that I won't be able to eat the food they offer for health reasons. She took me to a farmer's market and I now have a bunch of veggies, tofu, unflavored seaweed and unflavored dried chirimen. She's going to bake potatoes for me tomorrow and boiled me a dozen fresh eggs. I didn't eat the pre-cooked store bought eggs because they had an odor that smelled like flavoring and I didn't want to take a gamble. Finally, I can eat something. Hopefully day 1 nightmare was it.
