Low-Carb Conversations
Low-Carb Conversations features conversations with host Leah Williamson, NTP and a variety of voices in the Low-Carb, Keto, Paleo and Real Food movements, expressing many different points of view.

Triple-digit weight loss success story and low-carb diet counselor Eileen Beal and and recovering sugar addict turned real foodie blogger and RD student Karey Boerst join our hosts Jimmy Moore and Dietitian Cassie today in Episode 116 of "Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends!"

 

Momentum is building for the Paleo, primal, real food, and low-carb, high-fat nutritional approaches with so many exciting headlines highlighting the positive benefits this way of eating can afford anyone who is willing to give it a try for themselves. While we still hear some disappointing health messages being promoted in the mainstream media urging people to cut their fat and calories, eat more "healthy whole grains," and exercise hours a day to "work off" their bad nutritional choices, we are encouraged that OUR message is getting out there and changing the hearts and minds of the people who are sick and tired of being sick and tired. If you are one of those people who finds benefit from the positive health message you are hearing on this podcast, then we'd so appreciate your financial support of any amount. CLICK HERE to stand with Jimmy and Cassie as they keep the message alive. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

And don't miss Eileen's faux low-carb potato salad and Karey's low-carb flax crust pizza recipes at the end. So pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let's talk!

PUMPKIN AND SPINACH FRITTATA by Anne Franklin

Prepare a large baking dish by brushing with melted butter. I often line my dish with baking paper instead as it saves scrubbing later.

Preheat oven to 340 degrees Fahrenheit

Ingredients
400g roasted chunks of pumpkin
200g spinach
120g blue cheese or feta, (diced or crumbled)
12 eggs
50 ml heavy whipping cream
120g creamy blue cheese or feta
100g diced bacon
1 tomato
200g grated cheese
seasoning and herbs to taste

I usually cut my pumpkin into 1 -2 inch pieces. I toss the pieces in a little olive oil, seasoned herbs such as Tuscan seasoning, and bake in the oven until soft. Better still is to bake extra when roasting veggies for dinner the previous day.

Layer the pumpkin and spinach in your baking dish with pieces of the creamy cheese or feta. Beat the eggs together with the cream. Pour the eggs over the veggies. Scatter the pieces of bacon over. Slice tomato and place over the dish. Sprinkle grated cheese over.

Bake in a moderate oven until firm. and the cheesy top is golden. Takes 30 to 45 minutes depending on the depth of the dish. Great as a main meal with salad and slices well when cold to make an ideal picnic food.

MaryLou's Faux Scalloped Au Gratin Potatoes
1 Celery root or Celeriac peeled, cleaned and sliced (I use a mandolin and slice the pieces thin and then cut them into smaller pieces)
4 tablespoons of butter (I use Kerrygold unsalted)
1 cup of heavy cream
Garlic powder
Salt
Pepper
1/4 cup Parmesan
1/4 cup Romano
1/4 cup Mozzarella

Put all ingredients, except cheese, in a sauce pan over low to medium heat cover and sauté for 25-30 minutes stirring occasionally until they are the softened. After 20 minutes add cheese and continue cooking over low heat

MaryLou's Collards and Kale

This recipe seems so simple and yet it is never the first thing people think of. It is a great way to get in broth when you are eating a real food nutritional approach. We have this at least 4-6 nights a week it is delicious. When we eat chicken we boil thighs in the broth for 15-20 minutes and then season skin on thigh and broil for 5 minutes or so to crisp (best fried chicken without coating with bad ingredients).

Collard Green
Kale
“Better than Bouillon” (I prefer the organic vegetable)
Water

Fill Dutch oven half way with water (the Dutch oven cooks collards faster)

Add bouillon paste to taste (I add a spoon full at a time, mix well and taste the broth and if it is to watered down I will add more paste or if it is to strong I will add more water).

Add Collards and Kale (I use a handful of each and that depends on the size of the pot and the amount of water you added) boil covered for approximately 15 minutes and you are done!

Amy Hager's Veggie Flax Wraps
3 large carrots
1 medium onion
1 cup flax meal
2 Tbs wheat free tamari or coconut aminos
1 tsp garlic powder

Place carrots and onion into a food processor and blend until finely ground. About 30 seconds will create this consistency. Transfer to a bowl.

Add 1 cup of flax meal and 2 Tbs of tamari/aminos and garlic powder. Mix until blended into a dough-like consistency. If the mixture is too dry, you may add a tablespoon of water or 2 until the dough like consistency is achieved.

If you have a large dehydrator: Remove the dough ball and spread onto dehydrator sheet covered with teflex and spread to a 1/4 inch thickness. Try to keep the thickness consistent and avoid thin spots. Place in dehydrator set at 120 degrees. After 2 hours, take the sheet out and gently flip it over. Peel back the lining and place back in dehydrator for another hour.

Otherwise, spread onto a parchment or silicone lined cookie sheet and bake (again aim for consistent thickness). Place in oven warmed to 150 degrees. Check on the wrap after an hour an a half to see pliable the corners are. If not totally mushy, it's ready to flip and peel off the parchment paper. Return to oven or another hour.

After the wraps have cooled a bit, you can slice them into whatever shapes or sizes you like. I find this recipe easily creates 6 individual wraps suitable for rolling veggies, tuna or your favorite combinations.

Each serving has about 150 calories, 10 grams carbs, 13 grams fat and 8 grams protein. Made with 100% REAL food!

I have a simple recipe for yogurt that can be as full fat as you want it to be. 1. Take 4 to 6 cups of whole milk (highest quality you can buy) 2. If you want a fuller fat recipe, substitute one cup or more of the milk with heavy cream 3. Heat the milk/cream to 180 degrees, stirring constantly and take off the burner. 4. Cool the mixture to 110 degrees then add 1/2 to 1 cup of room temperature unsweetened yogurt and mix. 5. poor the mixture into a glass or plastic container and seal with a lid. 6. Place the container in a water bath in a slow cooker with a programable temp guage set for 110 degrees. (if you don't have this type of slow cooker, I've heard you can turn on the light in your oven and set your yogurt inside and that will be about 110.) 7. Let it sit for 10 to 12 hours. Once the yogurt is solid you can put it in the fridge. 8. If you want a thicker yogurt, strain out the whey water using 4 layers of cheese cloth. I've done this recipe many times and it's amazing how easy it is and how good the yogurt is. I once did a batch with 4 cups of whole milk to 2 cups heavy cream. Once I strained it, it was a thick as cream cheese!

Paleo blogger and cookbook author Tammy Credicott and health enthusiast Steve Parke join our host Dietitian Cassie along with special guest co-host and registered dietitian Eliana Witchell today in Episode 107 of "Low-Carb Conversations With Jimmy Moore & Friends!"

It's the special day each week that we set aside to take a closer look at some recent health headlines from a low-carb, Paleo, and real food perspective. There are so many voices out there opining about what you should think about diet and healthy living, but it's good to get educated thoughts and ideas from various people in the alternative nutritional health community. It can get nauseating hearing a monolithic message about health from mainstream news sources. But we are committed to bucking that trend and giving you the "other side" of these stories so you can draw your own conclusions about what these headlines mean for you. If you like what you hear and want to help support us in our efforts here at "Low-Carb Conversations," then CLICK HERE to make a donation to keeping this show on the air. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

Jimmy Moore is steadily making progress on his highly-anticipated August 5, 2014 book release Keto Clarity and can't wait to get back to podcasting again. But in the meantime, our co-host Dietitian Cassie is still doing a spectacular job choosing some pretty amazing special guest co-hosts and today is no different as she welcomes in a real foods-based RD from Toronto, Ontario named Eliana Witchell. These two incredible registered dietitians are joined by guest friends Paleo cookbook author Tammy Credicott from "The Healthy GF Life" (author of Make-Ahead Paleo: Healthy Gluten-, Grain- & Dairy-Free Recipes Ready When & Where You ArePaleo Indulgences: Healthy Gluten-Free Recipes to Satisfy Your Primal Cravings, and The Healthy Gluten-Free Life: 200 Delicious Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free and Egg-Free Recipes) and Steve Parke who doesn't have a website or any social media pages, but has so many great things to share as you'll hear in today's episode.

Still think canola oil is healthy? Watch this video discussed in today's show:

How It's Made - Canola Oil

Listen in as Cassie, Eliana, Tammy and Steve share their thoughts on why Naked Juice isn't as natural as you might think, a new marketing ad from Mazola claiming canola oil is better than olive oil, a new study stating higher intake of fruits and vegetables will help you live longer, why almost everything you've ever been told about unhealthy foods is probably wrong, and so much more. Plus, we've got a great recipe from Tammy at the end for Prosciutto Olive & Sundried Tomato Turkey Burgers as well as other health and cooking tips just for you. It's time to pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and let's talk!
