Hello friends, I love it when the work week flys by. I have been having lots of fun in the kitchen. Yesterday I made the coconut pumpkin muffins, which are very tasty but need to be tweeked for my taste because I want a stronger pumpkin taste. I made lemon coconut bread on Monday but instead of lemon extract I accidentally put in maple (it was early in the morning and the bottles are similar) surprisingly they didn't taste too bad and we ate them. I made two soups this week. a modified la ribollita from my book Easy Soups. With napa cabbage, zucchini, celery, little carrot, veg stock, garlic, onion, sage, rosemary, and thyme, and tomato paste....delish. It was perfect to come home last night and make reheat some soup. For tonights dinner I made spiced butternut squash and coconut soup with roasted butternut squash, onion, garlic, veg stock, cumin, curry, lime, cilantro & coconut milk. I had to check if butternut squash is ft friendly and thankfully it is on the super carb list on pg 160.
I really think the ft is working well for myself and hubby. I don't feel deprived not eating grain carbs since there are so many alternatives. This morning I am eating a flax muffin with almond butter for breakfast. 1/4c ground flax, oil or butter I used 1 tsp coconut oil, 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1 egg microwave for 2 mins. I don't know the exact origins of this recipe but I saw it on minichicks blog several months ago.
I hope everyone has a wonderful day, whatever you are doing keep plugging away and don't give up.
