Productivity Training: Following Through on Dailies and Making Small Changes (Video & Outline!)

Productivity Training Following Through on Dailies and Making Small Changes (Video & Outline!)

Learning to follow through on your Dailies will probably be the most important thing you will do to increase your productivity training. We have a tendency to think that if we don’t get to our “long list,” we won’t accomplish much. This just isn’t true. What we do every day is what really makes us productive. The dailies!

 

Likewise, we have a tendency to think that we have to make multiple changes at one time in our lives in order to really have an impact. Another non-truth!

5 Tips to Become More Efficient in the Kitchen

5 Tips to Become More Efficient in the Kitchen

Freezer cooking. Crock pots. Semi-homemade. Instant pot. Microwaves. Casseroles. One dish skillets. All of these phrases describe ways by which people everywhere are trying to be more efficient in the kitchen. Time is at a premium for families everywhere. Cooking at all, much less taking the time to cook truly healthful, real food meals, is hard to do. I did a podcast a while back (before I was even cooking so low carb/sugar-free/low grain) detailing five ways I have found to be more efficient in the kitchen. These tips are useful for all types of cooks.

Eating Healthfully at Summer Picnics and Barbecues!

Eating Healthfully at Summer Picnics and Barbecues!

 

When I was homeschooling seven kids for thirty-two years, I would often tell my kids, “Every day can’t be special.” Oh, I loved making things special for my kids—but I also wanted them to love (and maybe even crave) “normal.” Just be able to do the stuff day in and day out. Do those things that made them successful students and kids. And so it is with eating more healthfully and eating for weight management. Every day can’t be special. And one of the worst sabotages in weight management is assigning “special” to every day—and indulging way too much in foods and/or amounts that will not help us meet our health and weight goals.

Two Low Carb Flour Mixes and Their Uses

2 Flour Mixes & Their Uses

 

Since I published my two low carb flour mixes, I have gotten questions concerning when to use each one, etc. So until I get the dozens of recipes up that go with each mix, I thought I would write a general post about the mixes, direct you to some recipes using them, etc. So this post will detail more about my Very Low Carb Flour Mix and my Sprouted Low Carb Flour Mix!

 

First of all, check out the handy chart that shows carb counts in each of my flour mixes as well as other low carb (and non low carb) flours.

 

PIN THIS CHART HERE!

Here’s a handy list about my two flour mixes:

 

Very Low Carb Flour Mix

1) Great alternative for almond flour, coconut flour, or other low carb combination

2) Dilutes the flavors of the low carb flours so you don’t taste one specific one over the others

3) Has lower fat count than almond flour alone and lower carb count than coconut flour alone

4) Is more user-friendly in substituting for “regular” flours than any one low carb flour

5) Is great for crusts, cookies, bars, breading, muffins, quick breads, and more

6) Does not work for yeast products as it is missing gluten, which causes baked goods to rise (in substituting, if a recipe calls for almond flour, you can use this mix)

7) Is “very” low carb because of the very low carb products that are used to make this mix

8) Is lower in calories than almond flour

Sprouted Low Carb Flour Mix

1) Great alternative for times you want to make yeast products or want something to be low to moderate in carbs but want people who are “very low carb flour” skeptics to enjoy it too

2) Has a lower fat count than almond flour and slightly higher carb count than coconut flour

3) Is super user friendly in low carb and regular recipes

4) Is great for everything, including yeast products and thickening

5) DOES work for yeast products—though you will need to experiment (see my “Crescent Roll Dough” recipe for ideas)

6) Is low/moderate in carbs (wayyyy lower than most wheat or white flour combinations…much closer to coconut flour in carb count) because of the diluting of the higher carb products

7) Is lower in calories than most

9 Low Carb Flours and Their Nutritional Info (Infograph for Easy Reference!)

9 Low Carb Flours and Their Nutritional Info (Infograph for Easy Reference!)

 

In my four years of low carb baking and cooking, I have tried them all. Some have turned out great. And some not so great. Baking with low carb “flours” can be challenging. They just don’t act like the flours we are used to baking with. They don’t taste like them either! So what do you do with almond flour, coconut flour, flax, oat fiber, and more? Which low carb flours are truly low and which are not? What about incorporating other flours together to make a more acceptable-to-family flour mix or flour blends?

Low Carb Sprouted “Crescent Roll” Dough (aka Low Carb “Pilsbury Crescent Dough”) { Low Carb, Sugar-Free, THM Crossover or S}

Low Carb Sprouted Crescent Roll Dough Recipe

INTRODUCING MY DOUGH BABY

I make many low carb “doughs” and “batters.” I don’t mind a cream cheese and mozzarella biscuit. I actually love breakfast sandwich fillings or jam on my “Not So Oopsie” rolls. (And they’re also good made into “cream cheese danishes”!) I like my crepe recipe—both savory and sweet. But oh for yeast dough! And even more oh for low carb yeast dough…and low carb rolls, low carb pizza dough, low carb cinnamon rolls and more—made out of more “real tasting” flours!

 

I’m not a fan of some of the doughs available for low carb or healthy bakers. I don’t like trying to pass off a “quick bread” (i.e. in a mug) or with flax and oat fiber as a bread. I don’t like the feel on my teeth (okay, they make me cringe a little) of doughs that are primarily made of cheese (or the flavor or the fat and calorie content!). And I really don’t like the taste of psyllium husk in a batter.

 

Yes, those doughs and batters are extremely low carb (often low carb/high fat/super calorie dense), which makes them ideal for keto situations. But I haven’t enjoyed them too much.

Philly Cheesesteak Casserole

Philly Cheesesteak Casserole

 

(With Freezer Entrée Options)

 

Since I had my bout with very symptomatic pre-diabetes a couple of years ago, I have been trying to learn to cook and bake dishes with fewer carbs/lower glycemic index. About a year into this cooking (several months ago), I realized that one of the things that I missed the most were my one-dish meals.

 

I have been a *freezer cook* for twenty-five years now, and one of the greatest benefits of freezer cooking is pulling a nearly-complete meal out of the freezer, adding a salad, and calling it dinner. With lower carb cooking, this was seldom a reality for me.

 

Instead, I would pull a meat entrée (meat loaves, meat balls, marinated chicken breasts, cheddar coated chicken thighs, etc.) out of the oven then try to figure out what low carb/healthy sides I could put with it—while still keeping college and high school boys and my husband satisfied and full.

 

I missed the ease of the one dish entrée desperately, so I have been on a search for more “casserole-y” types of healthy entrees for the past several months. I have a few for you that will be coming up in the next few weeks—and this is one of those.
