Smoothies, Russian Custard w/cut up fruit
(Full for Smoothies, Stage 6/Full for Custard and raw fruit)
(Stage 6 for banana pancakes, Full for coconut pancakes, Stage 6/Full for raw fruit)
We always get home from church late (2:30/3:00) so we have a big snack instead of a big meal. I made two different kinds of pancakes today.
The first was this "banana" pancake from Grain-Free Foodies. I sort of punted on the egg part. I had a lot of egg whites left over from the custard and yolking the smoothie so I dumped in my bowl of egg whites (maybe 7 or 8 eggs worth) then added 3 whole eggs. It worked. The kids ate them fast.
I tripled the recipe. How will I ever feed all these boys?
The original recipe reads:
2 tbsp. peanut butter (or any nut butter)
Mix together (my stick blender did much better than the hand mixer) then cook. If the pancakes got too big I couldn't turn them without ripping.
The second recipe was for coconut flour pancakes.
6 tbsp. milk (I used homemade coconut milk)
splash vanilla (I skipped that)
2 tbsp. honey
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder (did not use)
6 tbsp. coconut flour
1/4 c. melted coconut oil
Mix all but coconut oil together. When mostly blended (again, I used my stick blender) add the oil and blend some more. Let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes then blend again. I tried making these into "little" pancakes like the banana ones but they tore like crazy. These pancakes wanted to be big. They were very crepe-ish and turned extremely well once I made them larger. I can see them working very well as a wrap or "tortilla", maybe even as a noodle in a casserole, especially if you left the honey out. The recipe made about 10 big pancakes (size of a tortilla) and 8 little ones.
(Stage 1 if no celery or cabbage, Stage 3 if you add them, Stage 3 for sauerkraut)
We added the sauerkraut into the borscht and it was wonderful! I added celery and cabbage for the first time since being on the diet. I don't use the white sugar or lemon juice listed in the original recipe. I'm also leaving out the tomato juice and sour cream for now.
Nothing I can note.
Chasing the fermented cod liver oil with carrot juice works well. Water just doesn't get rid of the taste or the oily feel.
