Long-time members of the low-carb community know and love the Miracle Brownie recipe from About.com from Laura Dolson. I’ve long loved this recipe as well, even modified this recipe to lay off the flax a bit and go easy on my tummy.
Well, with my recent food allergy issues, I also had to find a way to modify the recipe to be dairy-free.
Here’s what I came up with, this time I left all the flax in and just tackled the diary components.
I seem to be addicted to the foods I’m allergic to, so it’s super important to win the food craving battle. I’ve also learned over the years that I’m a stress eater and I tend to turn to food when I’m bored. So it’s important for me to steer clear of of my allergen foods, find healthy ways to deal with stress, and keep myself busy to avoid diving head first into a bag or box of something poisonous.
Many people struggle with food “cravings.” Studies tell us that it’s fairly common for food cravings to happen quite often at around bedtime. Your guard may be down, you may have had an unusually hard day, and off you go on your not-so-merry way to find that tasty treat. Of course, it doesn’t help that most of the food available in our environment has been built to induce cravings and addiction.
More often than not for many of us these non-hunger factors are responsible for uncontrollable cravings and food binges that drag us off course.
From where I sit, you can never have enough side dish recipes in your pocket. Side dishes definitely help to spice up a meal, change things up and provide variety. Meal planning can become pretty monotonous and boring and I find that new side dishes can really help to liven things up!
This side dish really does the trick! We love mushrooms around here, but these are super delicious. Full of fat and flavor!
Roasted veggies are the best side dish! Roasting is an easy, great way to add major flavor and texture to any veggie. One major roasting staple at our house is broccoli, here I’ve added Brussels sprouts and onion. Mushrooms are another great item to add to the mix.
Easy, delicious, and great for you!
Fish is usually the easiest thing to defrost in a hurry at our house so we have salmon or flounder (wild caught of course!) at least once a week. Tonight was one of those nights, busy hanging out with friends and getting ready for the week so I got out two salmon fillets.
I like to steam these over a bunch of veggies and I find the tin foil method to be the easiest in both preparation and clean up! I use a pie plate instead of making envelopes out of the tin foil, I like to stuff these full of veggies and spices so this seems to be the safest method for me.
Check it out, super easy and fast meal!
We’re heading off to an End of The World Chili Cook-off today and I thought I’d share the recipe I concocted with you guys…it’s too late for my competition to cheat anyway!
As you probably know, if you’ve been following us for a while, we’re really big on chili in the Rogue House! What other dish is so hearty, meaty, delicious, and so incredibly easy to make in large quantities? Chili at our house usually has beans in it, like my Black Bean Chili, but this time I’ve omitted the legumes simply because I ran out of room in m crock pot! The absence of beans makes this recipe 100% low-carb and paleo friendly!
This recipe made a huge batch of chili and filled my 6 quart crock pot to the brim, so if you’ve got smaller appetites, no more room in the freezer, or you’re just not in the mood to eat chili every meal for a week you can cut the recipe down.
Here ya go! I also made corn bread…super famous recipe for the moistest of moist corn breads…but sharing that recipe would be illegal around here! I made it to knock the competitions’ socks off, wish me luck!
