Just Like Loaded Baked Potato

leave a comment »

I had to get some cauliflower cut up and ready to put in the freezer. I bought 3 heads on sale and have had them in the fridge for way too long. After I cut them up, I let them boil for 3 minutes. I fished all the chunks out and let them cool completely. Before I stuck them all in the freezer, I decided to make myself a “Stuffed Baked Potato”. Doesn’t that sound delicious?

Has anyone tried Linda’s recipe for “Just Like Loaded Baked Potato“?
This is soooooooooo gooooooooood!!

I was checking out my Facebook page this weekend and noticed a 5k walk/run sponsored by the school district a graduated from. The class I graduated with (many, many years ago), had posted it as an event for us to do. I decided that I would do this event. I need some motivation to get out and move! This is it. It is scheduled for March 26. Darlin Dan is hoping he can do it too. (He still has problems with his knee.)

The countdown begins-33 days until the 5k walk/run!

Low Carb Strawberry No Bake Cheesecake!

with 2 comments


I made this delicious pie on Saturday afternoon. I wanted to add Glucomannan/X. gum mixture to firm up the filling. I tweaked Linda’s recipe, “Rachel’s Individual Strawberry no bake Cheesecake” recipe! This was made as a whole pie with a combination of sweeteners and the gluc. powder added to firm the filling.
Here’s what I did-
Filling-
4 large fresh strawberries whirled in blender
12 ounces cream cheese, softened
2/3 cup sour cream
3/4 cup granular Splenda or equivalent liquid Splenda
1/4 cup Erythritol (powder)
1/8 tsp. stevia powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2-2 tsp glucomannan powder
1/8 tsp X. Gum
Strawberries sliced for garnish

Crust-
1/2 cup ground almonds
1/4 cup ground pecans
1/4 cup ground hazelnuts
2 tablespoons vanilla whey protein powder
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/16-1/8 teaspoon salt
sprinkle of cinnamon

Blend all of the ingredients in a small bowl and spread in a greased 9″ pie plate to make the pie crust. Sprinkle a little cinnamon on top. Bake at 350ยบ 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned, Watch closely it will brown very quickly. Cool completely before using.

Filling-
Coarsely chop the berries and place them in a blender.
Add everything but the glucomannan and X. gum in a bowl and whip until smooth, adding gluccomannan and X. gum sprinkled in a little at a time.
Chill well before serving.

Darlin Dan and I took a field trip to Tim’s.
Here’s what I got

I grabbed some coconut milk, baby corn and……………

Shiratake noodles!! They only cost $1.29!
These do not have tofu!
I only got 1 bag because I want to see if I like them first. Tim’s is very close to the house.

LC Pina Colada!

leave a comment »

Here’s my first post on using Glucomannan powder in a recipe.
I got this idea while driving home from work this afternoon!! I was dreaming of having a Pina Colada! I realized that I could try to make my fav. drink using this powder to thicken it.
When I make a regular Pina Colada, I love to use ice cream and I thought this powder might do the trick.

I can’t believe I made such a fantastic low carb Pina Colada!
Here’s what I did-
1 cup of coconut milk
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup Torani coconut syrup
6 drops of liquid splenda
2 truvia packets
1 scoop unflavored protein powder
1/2 tsp glucomannan powder
1/16 tsp xantham gum
1/2-3/4 tsp of unsweetened Pineapple/orange koolaid
Rum to taste-optional
Lots of ice
I put the liquid ingredients in blender first-gave it a quick whirl
I had combined the protein powder, glucomannan and x. gum in a small bowl first and then added 1/2 to blender at a time. Added the kool aid powder.
Added ice 2 at a time until I was happy with the consistency.
We did add rum and enjoyed every sip of it!

Jessica’s Birthday

leave a comment »


My oldest daughter is having a birthday on Valentines Day and wanted to celebrate on Friday night! We had dinner at a Moroccan Restaurant.
Here’s what I had-Chicken with vegetables-

Jessica decided to go somewhere different and special for her birthday. I had never eaten this type of food before. I didn’t really know what to expect.
We had a wonderful time. The atmosphere was great! We sat in a special little area with sofas and pillows. We drank some yummy hot tea (sweetened with real sugar). My favorite dishes were the lentils and hummus.
