i have questions about mushrooms. are these ok to eat? specifically the white button mushrooms. i've been reading positive things about mushrooms but then i came across some bad things. like mushrooms should be avoided because they have yeast in them. so i'm really confused about what to do. should i not eat them?

Recipe: Recipe: Sesame-Crusted Sardine, Fennel and Sweet Potato Cakes

Diet type: Pescatarian, Gluten-free

Diet tags: Gluten free

Number of servings (yield): 8 (~ eight patties)

Ingredients
  • 230g sweet potato, peeled and chopped into small cubes
  • 210g tinned sardines (oil drained away- or give the oil to your cat!)
  • 1 stick of celery, washed, leaves cut off
  • 1-2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 tbsp. parlsey, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp. fennel bulb, minced
  • (optional) 1/2 fresh red chilli, sliced (seeds discarded)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • sesame seeds (around a cup or so)
  • coconut oil


Instructions
  • Peel the sweet potato, chop it into small cubes and then steam or boil them until they are very soft. Then using the back of a fork or a potato masher, mash the sweet potato until it is very soft and smooth.
  • Take the sardines out of the tins and drain the oil away. Add the sardines to a bowl and mash them until you have an almost paste-like mixture.
  • Crush the garlic clove(s), chop the celery stick into very small pieces, chop the parsley and the tbsp. of fennel bulb and chilli. Mix these into the mashed sardine mixture. 4. Season with salt and pepper.Now mix in the mashed sweet potato and egg.
  • Using your hands, form about 1 tablespoon worth of the mixture into a ball and then flatten it.
  • Pour some sesame seeds into a bowl and dip the sardine cakes into the sesame seeds covering the whole of the cake with sesame seeds. Repeat with the rest of the mixture.
  • Melt some coconut oil in a pan and cook the sardine cakes in the coconut oil on medium-low heat until they are lightly browned, firm and cooked through.

Index to recipe and nutrient discussions and websites.

Because there's been hundreds of good threads and they are always too hard to find. In fact, I can't find the threads I had in mind right now. These are what I find when I search. Feel free to post suggestions. But,

Please add recipes to the existing threads. Or, if none exist that suit your topic, start a new thread. Make it a good one and it'll get added here too.

Also, not everything here is going to be suitable for you. You need to figure out what intolerances you may have and how strict you need to be.

People's shopping lists and how they use those foods. I hope more people will post theirs.

Really Super Nutrient Dense recipes - Veggie dense, and/or with nutrients known to benefit acne. Soups, curries, stir fry. Add or remove meat or fish to meat your needs.

Breakfast foods - For those that can't figure out what to eat when giving up cereal.

Offsite:

whfoods.org, where all the recipes prepare foods in the best way possible to preserve nutrients. Which, in the case of veggies, mostly means steaming or what they call healthy saute (in water) and topping them with what they call Mediterranean dressing (olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, S & P).

Blogs

Recipe collection by an acne sufferer:

Oh, She Glows! blog:
A woman blogs about how she got her glow back after years of bad diets and i think an eating disorder. Link to her recipe page:http://ohsheglows.co...off-the-season/ Includes ways to make some basic stuff special, like Carrot Cake and Pumpkin Pie oatmeal and Oat parfaits in which you layer your soaked overnight oats with all kinds of things like banana ice 'cream.' You are putting your overripe bananas in the freezer, right? You should be.

Pre-industrial and/or Traditional diet sites and blogs:

This guy, a neurobiologist, is kind of primal with a bit of Weston Price tendencies, i.e. willing to eat properly prepared grains/legumes.
http://wholehealthsource.blogspot.com/

Weston Price foundation: http://www.westonapr...rg/healthtopics But they don't seem to have recipes there anymore? I suppose because they sell books. Maybe there are still some in these articles: http://www.westonapr...aditional-diets

The NourishingGourmet: Lots of good info on properly preparing foods including sprouting, fermenting...

Refer also to blogs/books from various ethnic groups. Indian, for example.

No Meat Athlete Vegetarian recipe site:
http://www.nomeatath...s-for-athletes/ Obviously not going to be allgrain/seed free, although some are. But there's a lot of smoothie and drink recipes, raw items, desserts, and nutrient dense veggie recipes worth checking out. Many are vegan.

Paleo/Primal diet sites and blogs. Even if you don't follow a paleo diet, they can be good sources for recipes to make dishes that are normally high in grains and processed carbs out of more nutrient dense foods. Breads, pastas, pizzas, deserts, snacks... Gluten free since they don't use grains.

Mark's Daily Apple (He's a paleo-like guru with a book called the Primal Diet. The primal diet is anti-grain but not anti dairy.)

Adding Veggies to your favorite foods:
Cookie Magazine's Sneak it In recipes of kid friendly foods filled with veggies great for those that think they don't like veggies. The veggies in these are not invisible, though, like in the two sites below. Note cookie magazine no longer exists but if you search, you may find a way to these recipes.


Deceptively Delicious- cookbook in which veggie purees are snuck into meat loaf, brownies, chicken tenders, etc. Free recipes on this site. You'll need to reduce the sugar. I can vouch for cauliflower in scrambled eggs, I tried it accidently when trying to make the cauliflower pizza crust on a griddle on the stovetop rather than in the oven. It wouldn't hold together so I scrambled it. Only 1 egg and a lot more cauliflower, but it tasted like eggs.

The foods containing Gluten are leading for serious diseases such as diarrhoea after eating and the diseases like Crohns, Coeliac.It is our endeavour to produce the best products for our family members whenever their particular dietary requirements insist on a controlled and strictly monitored variety of natural ingredients. Our range of gluten and wheat foods is constantly grouping with more new and existing additions. Some of the regular foods that we can still eat, without doing any gluten free baking at all. We have to try ir and then try it again and must not use a regular recipe by exchanging hours, Use recipes those are moist already , If we have any problems with lactose, use the recipes free from lactose including buttermilk rather than milk.

I already posted a thread with this recipe for dairy free ranch dressing, but I figured I would post it here too so people can find it over time once the thread is long forgotten. :)

WHat about vanilla?Is there anyone who uses it?

There a lot of recipes where vanilla is an ingredient and I'd like to know your experience, if you have a specific brand,or what to look for when buying vanilla powder/extract..

If you get vanilla, be sure to get the real vanilla extract! There are a lot of "vanilla flavor" things that have zero vanilla in them. You can also get the whole vanilla beans and grind them yourself. I love vanilla ice cream with chunks of the ground vanilla beans mixed in. Yum yum.

Note-- I know little about vanilla and how healthy/bad it is so don't take this as nutritional or skin advice. I don't eat it enough to know how it effects my skin.

Unless you have allergies I don't see why there should be any issues with mushrooms.

Mushrooms are fine, unless you want to do a strict anti candida diet which is a temporary measure. They do not contain yeast. They are a fungus, like yeast.

Great blog for Thai food! A lot of the things are acne friendly, and I linked to tom kha gai, which I'm very fond of. Your Asian Market will carry the harder to find things like lemon grass, kaffir lime, and galangal. Don't substitute powders them for powders! There are a variety of pastes you can buy from markets that are usually entirely whole food ingredients, though I haven't seen one for tom kha gai. Aroy-D in the coconut milk section is just coconut milk and water, and they have a variety of sizes and consistencies. Another thing I've read is substituting peanut oil and peanuts with almond butter and toasted sesame oil in pad thai and other dishes. Haven't tried it yet to really compare, but there are a number of other Thai recipes that you don't have to modify to be acne-friendly.

Chichi has a bunch of great recipe for offal. You can get quality offal meats for the same price as offal meats, so learning to cook good offal meals is a great way to save money while still maintaining a nutrient dense diet.

 

As a sample of one of my favorite's, here is 4 ways to cook beef heart. Grass fed, pastured, organic beef heart from one farmer at my market is $3 a lb, not much more than cafo ground beef.

Unpinned for some reason so I thought I'd bump it. And I added a link to the first post in the good things thread.. I wonder what all else has been lost, such as from the supplement sub forum.
