Great for dry feet and elbows
the coco butter I mean
I have so many weird things in my cupboards left over from weird diets, new cooking books I got & wanted to try all the recipes… Keto is no different apart from really loving this, so easier to stick to!
I bought a 1kg bag of coconut flour on offer, but as I’m the only ketoer in the family, how am I going to get through that?!! I tried making bread with it, but the result wasn’t great… any tried & tested recipe suggestions please?
As for cocoa butter, I’ve read it quite a few times here in recipes recently, can’t remember where though, sorry Alec!
Great line, Ron.
To combat this problem, I have recently started to write either the recipe name or page of a cook book next to the item on my grocery list. That gives me a better chance of the ingredient actually getting used for what I intended.
I also primarily meal prep on weekends. I use a spiral bound notebook (I know, low tech) as l make my list (starting Sat morning) of things to make and will also mark a cook book page or something to remind me. I can refer back to the list if I need any reminders. Works so far…
I think I could find a few things I had bought that I never did use. A few, I still will. But some I bought, I used a little of and pretty much decided I don’t like them. (Flax seeds are one of them, and I now have two different varieties of flax seeds I don’t like.)
At least with the stuff that’s refrigerated, it expires and goes bad, whether I use it or not. So that stuff doesn’t accumulate.
Unflavored gelatin! Any clues why I bought it? I certainly don’t know why!
I know this is going to be unpopular - Apple Cider Vinegar.
I bought one of those giant bottles and used it at the beginning but now I cannot stand the smell or taste of it.
I approach like I am about to tackle a big spider - yuck
This is brilliant.
20 packets of konica noodles - they were not cheap and I feel so guilty when I see them
I read somewhere that it can be used in place of gums (xantham & guar) for thickening gravies. Not tried it yet though. I also use it in Panna Cotta which is really lovely.
I have seen low carb cookie recipes with this as a additive to give some chewiness to the texture. Haven’t tried that technique myself.
To make a yummy panna cotta with heavy cream and vanilla bean?
I am thinking you wanted to make some gummy bears with that gelatin? If you put gummy in the search tool, you will find a bunch of great ideas.
Cocoa nibs. What are they good for?? I have a huge bag that just sits there.
M&M on Keto Connect use them occassionally but I cant remember why now.
Can’t you use them for low carb chocolate chip cookies?
Dumb question, maybe, but have you tried just eating them? Some people enjoy them just like that as a (not sweet) chocolatey-tasting snack, or sprinkled into keto bark or some other LC-desserty kind of dish. They’re meant to be quite good for you. (Perhaps an acquired taste though.)
I’ve just bought a big bag of psyllium husk to add to all my other keto supplies. Will I use it? I have good intentions… at the moment.
I have heard a keto person describe cocoa butter as tasting like frosting. I think that she puts it on a square of dark chocolate sometimes.
