2 cups orange juice
Blend all of these ingredients together in a blender. I guess you could add honey if you wanted to but it is tasty enough as it is. I usually add more banana.
I confess. I am a bar-b-q sauce addict. Before I went on this diet, I ate store bought bar-b-q sauce with EVERYTHING. When I went on the diet I had to make my own. I just follow the Ketchup recipe in Elaine Gottschall's book but add chopped garlic, onion, and parsley to make it chunky like bar-b-q sauce. It tastes just as good as the store bought and works just as good on food. Just a suggestion.
Oil and Vinegar Dressing
I didn't like the vinaigrette dressing given in the book. I like this one better:
3 parts vinegar
I actually add only 3 parts oil. That last part is optional.
Spinach Salad w/ Hot Bacon Dressing
6 c. torn spinach
Saute bacon until very crisp. Remove and drain on paper towel. Slowly add vinegar, pepper, and honey to bacon grease. Stir. Heat to boiling. Remove from heat & add onions.

Seven Layer Salad
Use shallow dish. Layer as follows:

Variations: Use cheddar cheese, grated, instead of parmesan. I like to do this salad in a deep clear bowl and repeat the layers. It is very pretty this way.
4 c. broccoli, chopped
Mix mayonnaise, vinegar, and honey. Mix all other ingredients and add dressing. Marinate 12 - 24 hours.
Variation: Can leave out bacon and add sunflower seeds.
6 c. peeled, cored, sliced apples

4 chicken breasts
Prepare chicken breasts in advance. Place breasts in pan and cover with water.

Here is Mac's Lentil ideas:
<<...It all started with Elaine's sweet and sour lentils and then I got creative--first modification was to substitute balsamic vinegar and fresh sweet basil in her original recipe. The next version included one seeded and diced jalapeno pepper, small sweet yellow onion and balsamic vinegar instead of the original seasonings as listed in the book...>>
Peach Yogurt Sherbet
1 pound (4 or 5) ripe peaches, yields about 2 cups prepared fruit
Blanch the peaches in boiling water for 20 seconds. Refresh under cold water
and remove the skins. Remove the pits and slice. Peel and slice the banana.
Freeze the fruit in plastic bags. (I chopped the fruit up first before
freezing) When frozen solid, remove from the freezer and pound to break into
chunks. ( I found no need to pound, it simply broke into pieces in a few
Mix one cup almond flour, one teaspoon baking soda, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Set aside.
Combine one beaten egg, 3/4 cup yogurt, and 1/6 cup oil. Stir this into dry ingredients only until moistened.
Use a hot griddle or frying pan. Start with small size as they may be hard to flip. Give them plenty of time to cook through. They will be beautifully brown and taste great with honey, your homemade syrup, or just plain.
Combine in blender:

Recipe for Mayonnaise
Process at highest speed in blender:
Blend in 1/2 envelope unflavored gelatin dissolved in 1/4 cup water.
Chill and enjoy. This is delicious for deviled eggs.
Note: When I tried this recipe I used a whole envelope unflavored gelatin. My mayonnaise was too thick. I'm guessing 1/2 envelope would be about right. It might take some more experimenting to get it just right. Let me know how it turns out.

1 teaspoon butter
Saute mushsrooms, onion and green pepper in butter until tender. Stir in tomato, water, lemon juice and seasonings. Place pork chop in baking dish and spoon vegetable mixture over top. Bake at 350° until pork chop is done. This recipe is for one serving so I just multiply the ingredients by however many servings I wish to make. It suggests you serve over rice. I served rice to the other members of my family and spaghetti squash to my son.

Anyone out there hungry for a crunchy snack? I tried one tonight that turned out so well Jon said I've got to share it with the group. It's easy. Here goes . . . .
Heat your griddle or heavy skillet.
Eat hot or cold with salsa or plain.
You can make the cheese chips bite size or make one enormous chip and then break it up to whatever size you like.
We haven't tried storing these yet - I'm not sure what will work for that - But I do know they are great fresh . . . and they CRUNCH like a chip!!
Peanut Butter Balls
1/2 cup peanut butter
Mix peanut butter, honey, almond flour together. Roll by hand into balls. Roll balls in chopped nuts to coat the outside. I keep them in the fridge and they have a pretty nice consistency then.
Old Fashioned Lemonade
1/4 cup boiling water
Pour the boiling water into a bowl with the honey and stir until
the honey melts. Add the lemon juice and water and stir. Pour
into glass with ice cubes.
Hot Tuna or Chicken Salad
Can of tuna or equivalent of shredded chicken
Mix the above ingredients and then warm in the microwave until the cheese melts. The original recipe was for a Grilled Tuna sandwich, so for those people who make their own bread this would make a great grilled sandwich as well.
I liked this recipe because it's lower in fat than if you had used mayonnaise.
Just wanted to pass along this recipe I came across which fits the SCD perfectly! It is a very moist and delicious carrot cake with a hint of orange. We found it to be very much like a 'real cake'. I was so suprised that the recipe did not call for flour.
6 eggs, seperated
Preheat over to 325° F.
We found our Yogurt Maker in a Health Food Store. The brand is Yogourmet II Electric Yogurt Maker. It makes great yogurt always very thick and creamy much nicer than any commercial yogurt I ever tried.
The company you could contact to find out where to purchase one in your area is Lyo-San Inc.
Lachute, QC [Quebec], CANADA
The phone # is 1-514-562-8525
We have tried other yogurt makers but never got the excellent quality yogurt we get with the Yogourmet II. Actually this brand was recommonded to us by Lucy Rosset (Ist Testimonial on the back cover of Breaking the Vicious Cycle. Hope this info helps.
Breakfast Eggplant Parmesan
These are not my recipes, in fact, I haven't even tried them yet. But I
found them on a
low-carb recipe page
[ ftp://ftp.nmcs.com/pub/lowcarb/recipes/ ].
Take boneless chicken breasts and cut with a meat scissor in the shape of fries and then deep fry till golden brown and faily well done. Add some homemade catsup and use your imagination... also chicken nuggets taste great with an egg batter and powdered garlic and onion coating (no breading) make great finger snack... make them small and eat like peanuts.
Garlic Eggplant(4-6 servings)
1 medium onion - coarsely chopped
1 Tablespoon dried basil or 1/4 cup fresh chopped salt and pepper to taste.
In a large heavy bottomed pan (or dutch oven), sautee (in water or veggie
stock) onions over medium heat until soft and sweet. Add mushrooms, eggplant,
garlic and water. Keep on med - high heat stiring occationally until the water

0.5kg/1lb lean minced beef
Slice the aubergines quite thinly (about 3-4mm) and layer them in a deep dish,
salting each layer as you go. Leave them at least an hour, preferably two,
and then drain and rinse off the juice which appears. Shake them dry.
Heat a frying pan and fry single layers of aubergine in olive oil until
darkened and tender. When all the aubergine is cooked put it aside.
Heat some sunflower oil and cook the mince until just brown, adding the
pressed garlic in the last minute or two.
Thom Yam Thai Soup(a note with the recipe said to ignore the Krapau leaf because the contributor didn't know what it was.)
Wash lemon grass and trim root ends and tough layers. Slice bottom 6 inches thinly. Chop 1 T. of this. Puree chopped lemon grass, 1 T. of sliced ginger, garlic, peppercorns, coriander roots and shallots. Bring 1 cup of coconut milk to boil and add lemon grass mixture. While stirring, reduce heat to medium and add chicken, remaining coconut milk, ginger slices and lemon grass. Bring to boil, reduce heat, and simmer uncovered until chicken is tender. Season with chilies, fish sauce and lime juice. Decorate servings with lime leaves and coriander sprigs.
To make coconut milk: Blend 2 cups fresh or frozen grated coconut with water. Strain through double cheesecloth, pressing out all liquid. This is thick coconut milk. To get thin milk, add warm water to residue from first straining. Let stand 5 minutes, then press as before.
For coconut cream, refrigerate first pressing and cream will rise to top. Refrigerate or freeze. Two cups coconut makes 3 cups thick milk, of which 6 tablespoons is cream.
