Low carb grain free American pancakes

September 9, 2013

20130909-115339.jpgFor 4 people (or maybe 5..)

4 dl double cream (can substitute with half whole milk)

2 tbsp psyllium seed husk powder (e.g. “fiberhusk”)

4 eggs

1 tsp baking powder

Whip together. I also added 4 drops of stevia and a pinch of vanilla extract.. Let the batter stand for 5 minutes or so, to let the psyllium gel and fry (at fairly low temperature).

Serve with raspberry jam (sweeten berries with a few drops stevia and then erythritol sugar) and whipped cream or home made ice cream..

Line seed with Greek yoghurt, for improved digestion…or supported peristaltic movements.

September 3, 2013

20130903-225241.jpg20130903-225226.jpg20130903-225211.jpg20130903-225154.jpg20130903-225139.jpg

4 raspberries

2 tbsp water

2 dropps of stevia

2 tbsp whole flax seeds (I add up to 1 dl flax seeds actually, and more water – just be sure to drink enough with them)

– blend together and let sit for a minute to thicken some (not necessary, but nice)

Then add 1-2 tbsp greek yoghurt

1 tbsp coconut flakes

Optional: add in a tbsp of MCT oil (or melted coconut oil) for brain support – for degenerative disease prevention

Add more water if it gets too thick.

– this gets the stomach in shape!

Suggestion: I keep my raspberries in the freezer. In the mornings I add about 4 or 5 raspberries in a little tea cup and pour over just a dash of boiling water to have them de-frosted. About 1-2 tbsp of water and i mash the raspberries to pieces with the teaspoon.  Then I add in 1-2 tbsp of greek yoghurt, 2 drops of liquid stevia (not too much, stevia is terrible if you add too much and it is so high concentration in many products!). Then I add in maybe 2-3 tbsp of whole flax seeds and 1 tbsp of shredded dry coconut and blend. My objective is to make it into almost a porridge like consistency. If I put the blend a side for a few minutes it thickens moderately which I like.  Again this really keeps the stomach in shape (helps peristaltic of the intestines).

I choose raspberries as they are delicious and so very low in carbohydrates. It is also  nice doing this on a little grated apple with a pinch of cinnamon. Btw. Remember to drink plenty (1-2 glasses of water) in combination with this little meal, especially if you go for adding the larger amount of flax seeds. The flax seeds helps the stomach by forming a gel in the gut which protects the intestinal lining and creates “bulk”. 

Regular bowel movements are good to reduce the risk of toxins reabsorbed in the lower intestines, which is typically the case in constipation. 

Perfect Fried egg with bacon bits and parsley mint sprinkled tomato

August 28, 2013

20130828-152928.jpgAdd some smoked bacon bits to a medium hot dry pan, let them soften and fry slowly (3 min).

Add some butter and switch up the burner. As the butter is frying quickly add in two eggs, sprinkle with salt and pepper and fry at high temperature! Move around with a spatula to avoid burning and so that the egg white get enough heat and so the butter is scooped up on the egg. High temperature is key!

Chop up some tomatoes, sprinkle with some olive oil, chopped up fresh mint, parsley, pepper and a pinch of sea salt.

LCHF – Low carb porridge

January 21, 2013

Two portions:

Add 4-5 eggs in a bole with 1-1.5 dl double cream and 2-3 table spoons of almond four (and in my case a little course hazelnut flour from Lidl). Whip / beat the mixture properly and add in flavors such as ground cardamom (two pinches), cinnamon, vanilla extract/powder, potentially 2-3 drops of liquid Stevia. Whisk it all together.

Add 1 table spoon of butter to a pan and 1 tbs of coconut oil and let it melt. Add in the blend and stir while cooking until it looks like porridge.

Serve with some extra cinnamon on top, a little butter if you like and (whole fat) milk or coconut milk, or sugar free blackberry jam.

Next time I try this I will make sure one can taste the cardamon and maybe try adding in some baking fiber like Fibrex, or coconut flakes, etc.

Zucchini spagetti bolognese with pesto and parmesane

December 18, 2012

Make “spaghetti” from vegetables like zucchini, daikon (rättika), carrots, etc. This is done with a so called spiraler. I bought mine here for 399 SEK  (roughly 40 EUR).

Below zucchini spaghetti served with a typical bolognese topping and some home made basil pesto.

Easy to make low carb coconut/coconut oil chocolate “balls”

December 16, 2012

20121216-132243.jpg

2 dl gram liquid virgin (non refined) coconut oil with taste of coconut

2 dl gram coconut flakes

1/2 dl crushed hazelnuts

1/2 dl chopped almonds

2 tablespoon cacao

2 tbs raw cacao nibs

A pinch of vanilla extract/powder (1 kryddmått vaniljpulver)

A pinch ground cardamum (1 kryddmått kardemumma, mald)

Some stevia (6-8 droops) or other sweetener such as Erythritol, after taste

A pinch or more of sea salt (preferably flakes) to enhance the chocolate taste

& 2 tsp of e.g. maca root powder if you have some, for adrenal gland support

Blend all the ingredients, the dry first then the liquid coconut oil, then  taste to see if you need any more stevia or possibly some sukrin (erythriol). The mix should be a little bit like porridge.. cover a tray with a baking paper, powder this with some ground coconut and spread out the mixture and flatten it so that it is roughly 1 to 1.5 cm high, powder with coconut again. Make some marks with a knife how large the pieces should be, making it easier to divide them later. Put in the fridge or your ice covered balcony and let stale. When it has hardened crack into pieces and put in a jar. Keep  refrigerated mainly.

You can also choose to put the bole with mixed ingredients in the fridge 20 minutes to then roll the solid “dough” into balls and cover them in ground coconut. -Rounder but obviously more work.

At the moment I buy my coconut oil here , when in Sweden.
