Potato Gluten Free Shortbread Cookies – 4 ingredients

potato gluten free shortbread cookies

Since I’ve discovered that heating nut flours like almond flour etc actually increases the oxidisation of PUFAs (poly unsaturated fatty acids) in them and kind of makes them toxic (eek!), you can understand why I’m not so keen to continue making up recipes with these nutty flours in it. These Potato Gluten Free Shortbread Cookies though have none of that and more of the good stuff.

Pro Metabolic Orange Popsicles

pro metabolic orange popsiclesApparently real orange juice is quite the recovery wonder food. We always knew it had lots of Vitamin C but it also has magnesium and when combined with sea salt, hydrolysed gelatin and coconut water it’s better for electrolyte replacement after strenuous exercise, than the chemical laden sports drinks.

Sounds good to me.

Raw Coconut Bounty Cookies

coconut butter, paleo, raw diet, healthy, ketoAfter I nixed the peanut butter for peanut powder – less damaging unsaturated fat – I ventured to try Coconut Butter. So that’s not the oil but just the coconut meat mixed together to make a kind of butter. This led to a new recipe creation – Raw Coconut Bounty Cookies!

So brought the jar home from my local health shop and was excited to try it. Open it up and… it is as hard as a rock! What the…

Macadamia Date Slice with Coconut Cream Icing

dates, healthy, weight loss, adrian alford photography, loose skin, losing weight,

My forte is melt and mix slices because they work like 99% of time – easy, easy, easy – and that’s why I like this Macadamia Date Slice.

I’ve given up on coconut flour – that’s firmly in the too hard basket – it requires incredible patience and nearly a chemistry degree – and I have neither! Well no patience with cooking anyway – with people, that’s another story. I posted a coconut flour recipe run down on facebook last week from people who are far better at it than me – see it here.

My forte is melt and mix slices because they work like 99% of time – easy, easy, easy – and that’s the way I like it!

Stevia causes Belly Fat…

stevia causes belly fatIs it true that stevia causes belly fat?

In this whole weight loss and health game, I like to be my own grand experiment to see what works for me and makes me feel amazing, hopefully all the time.

So I read up on different healthy food related topics, try them on for size, then make up my own mind as to whether what is written is true for me. Which is why I might be in favour of a product at a point in time, but after using for six months or more, I will change my mind because of the effects it has on me.

One of these products for which I have had a recent switch-o change-o is Stevia.

Super Rich Coconut Chocolate Fudge

SuperRichCoconutChocFudge

I love this Coconut Chocolate Fudge because it is super easy, as is my preference. It was just a tweak on my Homemade Chocolate mix that made it completely different, rich, decadent and just all over Oh My Goodness!

I love it when I have cooking weeks where everything works! I had a few disasters not that long ago where the result was so bad that even I couldn’t eat it – very rare as I hate to waste food. But this week was truly stellar, so here is one of the recipes today and the rest will follow in the weeks to come.

But then I saw who was involved and my eyes nearly popped out of my head!

Supposedly packed with all kinds of nutrition like omega 3, fibre, protein, and a host of minerals and in recent times given the superfood tag, however don’t believe the hype. Two problems with it and I’ll keep it brief because I can already feel your eyes glazing over – ha ha.

Sesame Tahini Bites

I was remembering the chewy Sesame Bar and wondered if I could make the same thing with less sweetener and maybe raw too, so I gave it whirl and while it’s not the same, it’s still yum and deserves a place in the Slim Birdy line up.

Just for fun, I found the ingredients of the standard commercial Sesame Bar and get a load of this…

Eat all night long… and still lose weight.

One of my big discoveries on my weight loss journey was the fact that I don’t actually have to stop eating, or even eat less.

This was a big hallelujah moment for me as I love to eat – obviously, or I wouldn’t have found myself in the mess I was in. And as we all know, trying to stop something you are doing without something else replacing it, becomes a big huge void that at some point, you want to fill up again. And usually the filling up is the sliding back into old habits because you haven’t created any new ‘you bewt’ habits to go on with and create your new life.
