I would really love to fix some hamburgers but i can not find any bread at the store that is gluten free, it sux so bad cuz i am missing a good grilled burger as part as my acne free diet while trying to gain weight.


Try a burger without bread smile.gif. You can always throw away the useless bap smile.gif. I had 2 lovely lamb burgers last night with lots of healthy green veg.

if you want more healthy foods for your daily diet, you can add organic foods on your every meal, just like Maca powder. You can add it on your juice, and desserts.

You should throw in some greens once everything else is cooked. And try other beans as well.

Thanks for the advice. When you say greens, leafy green included?
I will try kidney bean next. Anyhow, I sauteed my kale on garlic. And added it... so good!

I made these cookies last night and they turned out delicious:

Paleo Cacao Nib Cookies:
1 C Almond Flour (grind 1cup of almonds real fine into a blender to make 1 cup of almond flour)
2/3 C Shredded Coconut (Good Foods co-op has real cheap shredded coconut)
1 1/2 Tablespoons coconut oil (In the olive oil section of kroger, white container)
1/2 Cup Almond Butter
1 C Coco Nibs
1/3 Coconut Flour (I assume this is 1/3 cup)
1 Tablespoon vanilla
1 Egg
2 Tablespoon Cocoa Powder
1/2 Cup Honey or Agave
Spoon more or less round blobs onto a cookie sheet – round is better than flat cuz the inside stays a little chewy.
Cook for about 9 minutes at 350. Source:http://crossfitmaximus.com/2010/05/andrews-paleo-cookies/

I made them with raw honey but will try with maple syrup next time.

Recipe for making your own homemade milks:

Almond milk:
1 cup almonds, 4 cups water.

Cashew milk:
1 cup cashews, 4 cups water

Put the almonds and 2 cups of water into a blender and blend until creamy. Then add the other two cups of water and blend. Some people prefer to add a sweetener of honey, dates, a ripe banana or just the interior of a vanilla bean. Do whatever suits your diet!

Other nuts can be used as well: Hemp seeds, sunflower seeds, etc.


Could you add your recipe to the Drink recipe thread? This is meant to be an index.

Wheat/gluten grains and dairy products are never good for acne and really not the healthiest of foods no matter how 'whole' they are. They shouldn't be a big part of your diet. But how bad for acne varies from person to person. You should try avoiding them for at least a month each to test for intolerance. If you have any kind of digestion issues, discomfort after eating, bloating, heartburn etc or allergies, then you should avoid them for several months to give your digestive tract a chance to heal or you may not notice any improvement.

And if you notice no difference, then you could try adding them back in, but never make them bit parts of your diet. I would not drink milk, but have small amounts of yogurt or kefir with their benefit of live probiotic cultures and reduced lactose, and small amounts of flavorful cheeses once in a while.

Cabbage is great in veggie soup. i usually make a Mexican/Central American style veggie soup with cabbage, tomatoes, a bit of mild chile peppers, various other veggies such as summer squashes. Lots of onion and garlic of course, and what makes it great, lime juice. There's also plenty of Asian and European style soups to draw from especially eastern European. Cabbage can also be used as salad. I often combine it with chopped mango or if not in season, tart apple or pear and toss with lime juice, olive oil, oregano and dried chile flakes.

Kale (and other leafy greens) is great added to veggie and bean soups. It's also common to add to mash potatoes, but use sweet potatoes instead. In Ireland it's called something like colecannon and that's not even close to how it's spelled. And you can make Kale chips by rubbing with olive oil, sprinkling with salt and toasting in the oven. Also, use it or other leafy greens in curries. There are some recipes in the really super nutrient dense recipe thread.

Cabbage and Kale usually needs a few minutes of cooking, but most other leafy greens wilt quickly and can be added after you turn the heat off.

alternativista -- thank you! I completely forgot about soups eusa_doh.gif

in fact, I just remembered an amazingly delicious eastern european soup -- borsch -- my grandma used to make for me (I'm from Ukraine). I dug out her recipe and made it today -- delicious!

here goes:

HOW TO MAKE AUTHENTIC RUSSIAN BORSCH

Ingredients
+ 400g Beetroot (boiled)
+ 300g White Cabbage
+ 2 Large Carrots
+ One Large Onion
+ Potatoes (but I tend to leave this out now that I'm avoiding starchy foods)
+ Chicken Breast
+ Bay Leaf
+ Fresh Dill
+ Passata (or you can make your own tomato paste if you wish, but I use organic passata)
+ tsp. White Vinegar

Instructions
Roughly chop up the cabbage. Set aside.
Cut the onions into small cubes. Set aside.
Grate the carrots. Set aside.
Cut up the beetroot into little strips. Set aside.

Put the chicken breast into a large pot of salted boiling water.

While this is boiling, fry the onion (I fry it in extra virgin, organic olive oil), add the carrots. They should both be lightly browned. Remove and set aside.

Now, gently fry the beetroot for a few minutes. Add a tsp of vinegar (this helps vinegar release its red juices better), and then add the passata / tomato paste. Once all this is fried, set aside.

The chicken should be ready by now -- remove it from the water, cut it up into little cubes, and put it back into the boiling water. Add the cabbage into the water along with the chicken (I also add a cube of ORGANIC chicken stock)

Boil cabbage + chicken for 10 minutes.

Now, add the beetroot in tomato sauce. Simmer for 12 minutes.

Now, add the onion/carrot mix. Simmer for a further 5-8 minutes.

Add the bay leaf for added flavour/aroma.

Set aside for a few hours. It should all set. Your soup should be a deliciously bright red colour and packed with tasty goodness!! When serving, chop up dill and add to the portion. Sometimes, I also add a clove of crushed garlic for that extra flavour.

For a visual guide (although it is in Russian) see the link...it makes cooking this soup 1000x easier!

Enjoy!

Vegan recipe

This is a tasty smoothie:

1-2 bananas (I add 2 for taste)
1 cup of non-dairy milk (I use unsweetened soymilk)
1 cup of wild blueberries (I use the non wild ones and it works fine)
1-2 handfuls of kale
Raw Hemp protein powder (I use the one that has sprouted flax seed and maca) -Optional
Stevia (a little bit) - Optional

Enjoy this delightful purple colored drink. smile.gif
