Grain Free Butternut (or Sweet Potato) Flatbread

Grain Free Butternut (or Sweet Potato) Flatbread
I know, that’s sounds like an extreme claim. But if you follow a restricted diet, then you know just how liberating it is to have a never-fail staple recipe in your culinary arsenal. This grain free flatbread, a healthy bread alternative, fits the bill when you crave something–for lack of a better term–bready. If you are on a grain free diet, then you know how comforting it is to have something that can be used for sandwiches. I’ve been enjoying these for breakfast, slathered with raw honey. The strange ingredient in this grain free flatbread is the gelatin. “I don’t have gelatin,” you may be thinking, “can I leave it out?” I know I will be asked about egg substitutes. If you don’t have the butternut squash, you could use mashed acorn squash or sweet potato to make this grain free flatbread. Grain Free Butternut (or Sweet Potato) Flatbread Ingredients Instructions Have all ingredients at room temperature. Related:  GFCF Low Oxalate Dessert Recipes

Dairy and Egg Free Strawberry Mousse (GAPS, SCD) Have you seen the Marshmallow Experiment video? Researchers plop a single marshmallow down in front of a child in a closed room and explain, “You can eat the marshmallow now, or wait to eat it and I will bring you another one.”A hidden video camera records the hilarious results. A few kids stoically wait, face glazed over with determination, masters of delayed gratification. I’ve always had strong willpower, and I can imagine little six-year-old me sitting fiercely motionless until I earned the second marshmallow. After blending the ingredients together, I stuck a spoon in the food processor bowl and scooped out a generous taste of the unset mousse. Traditional mousses rely on an arduous process of whipping and heating eggs for a stabilized base. This recipe took a lot of experimentation to perfect (yeah, poor me–having to eat all of those mistakes). Creamed Coconut is pureed coconut meat. Why grassfed gelatin?

Spiced Gooseberry Chutney – Lip Smacking by Chef Heidi Fink If you have been wanting to buy some of those gorgeous green gooseberries but are not sure what to do with them, let me help you out. First of all, make yourself some gooseberry jam. Hands down my favourite jam in the universe! But definitely, definitely make sure you save some berries to make a jar (or four) of Spiced Gooseberry. It’s hard to imagine how delicious Spiced Gooseberry is if you have never tried it. Can I say that I learned to make this from my Gran and that I spent hours every summer putting up chutney from my mother’s gooseberry bush? I adapted this recipe from one I found last year at, while I was searching for non-jam ideas for berries (for my Bountiful Berries cooking class, natch). Who needs ham when you can eat a gooseberry sandwhich? SPICED GOOSEBERRY CHUTNEYMakes two cups (two jars). instructions In large Dutch oven, stir together sugar, vinegar, water and salt.

Recipe: Spring Fritata If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting! A fritata is slightly different from an omelette and perhaps a little more trendy. Fritata is from the italian word, fritta, the feminine past participle of the verb “to fry.” But it is way more than just fried eggs or even an omelette. This is the perfect fast food breakfast that can be made ahead and packaged for grabbing when on the run. Even more versatile, a fritata can be a very quick dinner that is savory and filling. Do Not Be Afraid of Eggs If you are making this wonderful meal, use pasture raised eggs so that you will get the most out of this nutritious meal. If you are worried about cholesterol, that is another area where conventional advice is sorely off base. If you would like to connect with a local farmer who raises hens on pasture, you might want to contact your local Weston Price Chapter. Use the Correct Pan A fritata needs to be cooked in a skillet that is also oven safe. Spring Fritata 1.

Réduire ses taxes scolaires… sans tricher Même quand je reviens de vacances et que ma boîte de courriels contient plus de 2000 messages, je ne me lasse jamais de lire les messages des lecteurs de , et maintenant de . Vous êtes nombreux à me poser des questions de finances personnelles, à dénoncer les pratiques douteuses des commerçants ou à me raconter vos trucs pour mieux gérer votre argent. Merci ! J’adore. « On m’a déjà dit que, n’ayant pas d’enfant, j’ai le privilège de changer pour une commission scolaire qui a un taux de taxation moindre. En effet, il est possible de réduire ses taxes scolaires en payant son compte dans une autre commission. Ils peuvent changer de commission scolaire uniquement lorsqu’ils n’ont pas d’enfant qui fréquente une école dans cette commission. Mais il faut être conscient que le taux de taxation des commissions scolaires anglophones est souvent plus élevé que celui des commissions francophones. Dans certains cas, la différence peut être considérable. C’est complètement faux !

Ancient Wheats and flour. The ancient flour…….. …2010 It was with great expectations that we visited John Letts` plots of ancient cereals he grows at Wheatley near . Mainly wheats and some , the aim of Johns growing is to encourage diversity. Rye will cross pollinate, so John has planted numerous types of Rye together, from Latvia, Ireland, Canada etc to establish a diverse gene pool, in direct contrast to the mainstreams monoculturing and highly selected narrow gene pool. This has many implications for our food supply…later. My expectations were met I must say. John`s wheats were resplendent in divergence. Johns accompanying explanation of the history of wheat, illuminated by the heads he was cutting as he spoke, was the best sort of education for a baker. Earlier that day I had made bread with the baker Geoff Coleman from Wheatley, who bakes for the bread group. I also toasted some the next day and I was immediately aware of its toasty/oaten aroma.

Asparagus Chicken in Lemon Garlic Sauce If you're new here, you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting! I was at the market the other day and I saw very thin asparagus. They actually reminded me of spaghetti so I thought I would use them in a similar way. Depending on where you live, asparagus may be in season. Asparagus is part of the lily family and is related to onions, leeks and garlic. Asparagus has a very good nutrition profile. It also has a fatty acid ratio of almost a 2:1 omega 6 to 3, which is very good. Why Urine Smells Funny After Eating Asparagus This is a little controversial as to exactly which breakdown product cause the odor. In either case, it is just the breakdown products after digestion and is not harmful in any way. Let’s Not Forgot to Eat Vegetables With Fat All those wonderful minerals in the asparagus are NOT available unless you eat them with fat. Ingredients 1.5 pounds chicken breasts sliced thinly1 pound fresh asparagus — thin ones if you can get themUnroasted sesame oil for cooking

Exposed: Factory Chicken Slaughterhouses Using Super-strength Chemicals to Cover Up Extreme Salmonella Contamination There is a reason why the conventional poultry industry in the U.S. has been fairly successful in recent years at lowering detected levels of salmonella in chicken. But it has nothing to do with factory birds being raised in cleaner and more humane living environments. To the contrary, a new investigative report by The Washington Post (WP) reveals that many chicken slaughterhouses are merely treating their filthy chickens with an ever-expanding volume and variety of toxic chemicals to mask the presence of more virulent salmonella strains from federal regulators. This shock finding was realized after researchers looking into the salmonella testing process for poultry identified a mismatch between levels of bacteria detected on birds and overall infection rates among the general population. Simply put, salmonella contamination rates in chicken appear to be decreasing while salmonella poisoning rates in humans have remained the same or are even increasing.

Photographer Captures Waves of Trash in Indonesia Waves for days. Trash for eternity. That’s what photographer Zak Noyle discovered on a recent trip to Java, Indonesia. The waves of Java, always known for being pristine and barreling, were now rolling swells of disgusting trash and debris. Noyle was shooting Indonesian surfer Dede Surinaya in a remote bay when he and Surinaya discovered the water to be covered in garbage, according to GrindTV. “It was crazy. In addition to the sea of plastic, large objects like tree trunks were being tossed around in the waves. Indonesia, a country comprised of more than 17,000 islands, suffers from a terrible trash problem that is polluting its waters. Often, the only other disposal option Indonesians have is burning their trash. Residents of large population centers are often the ones improperly disposing of their trash, which storms and currents carry to beaches and islands most locals have never even seen. No matter who is to blame, the effects are felt by those who live in or visit Indonesia.

What’s Buried Next Door to Vancouver Island University? — Crimes against Humanity in our own Backyard are Finally Surfacing I was held in the Nanaimo Indian Hospital when I was a child, for seven years. I was used like a guinea pig in experiments. Lots of Indian kids died in there. - Joan Morris, Songhees Nation, at a lecture at Malaspina College (VIU) in the spring of 2004 Just south of the VIU campus stands an overgrown piece of land behind stern barbed wire fencing: the site of the former Nanaimo Indian Hospital, run by the United Church of Canada and the federal government for over a half century. According to Joan Morris and other Indians, this ground holds the remains of children who were killed after grisly medical experiments were conducted there for decades by military doctors. This past week, Joan Morris’ testimony is helping to place Nanaimo in the news at international human rights forums in Europe. “My mother and I were both imprisoned in the Hospital in the 1960′s” she described. “Dr. In the words of Joan Morris,
