Day three of the sugar control diet and so far so good.
We’ve done this diet before. It was recommended to us by a health guru in Connecticut http://www.immunitrition.com/ to just re-start our metabolisms and detox from processed and sugary foods that cause inflammation and sluggish systems. Basically you cut out starch and sugar for a month and the first two weeks you can have dairy and rice. And you eat every 2-3 hours: 4-6 oz of protein and veggies at every meal and have nuts and veggies or a green apple for snacks in between. We have found that making egg bakes with veggies in them last for a long time for breakfasts and almond crust pizza (recipe below) is a nice dinner and leftover lunch. Or a chicken breast and salad work for lunch. One cool thing is that I make my own salad dressing that i got from a friend. It’s One Part Braags Apple Cider Vinegar http://bragg.com/ , one part Olive Oil, a little Maple Syrup or Honey to taste and some salt and pepper. So good. We put that on another Gosda Staple: Broccoli or Asparagus, Grass Fed Burger, and Brown Rice (that has been browned with some butter to open the kernels before boiling it tastes so good!).
Here is a video of a cardiologist giving a talk through the history of fats and how heart disease has become the #1 killer and Not because of Saturated Fats! he admits that after researching it, he was wrong for many years on this. the way Crisco changed the world…
Almond Crust Pizza
you will need:
375 deg oven
parchment or wax paper
all measurements are approximate because this is an art not a science. try it and see what works best for you
1 Melted Stick of Butter
1 -16 0z bag of almond flour
mix ingredients in a bowl well, once mixed spread onto wax papered cookie sheet and spread out as far as it will cover without being too too thin. I get right in there and use my hands usually but you can put another piece of parchment on top and roll it out before sliding the dough onto the cookie sheet. Then put in the oven for 7-10 minutes. It will bubble and stay a light tan when done enough to add toppings, so pull out of oven to tap and see if it is baked. Add toppings and bake until cheese is melted or to your liking. Enjoy!
We usually make BBQ Chicken with mushrooms and peppers or Mariana Chicken with mushrooms and tomatoes and olives. But whatever you like is yum. you will probably need a spatula to get the pizza from the pan and a fork because it can be crumbly.
Let me know if you try this pizza out and how it goes!
