Menu week 17 – 23 July 2017

Good morning ๐Ÿ˜‰

Over the previous weekend I cooked two batches of chicken bone broth, the one batch Iโ€™m keeping in a jug in the fridge for when we want to drink some, the other batch I used to make some chicken and vegetable soup for during the week. I got enough soup for 2 dinners and one lunch, so very cost effective.

A lot of our meals use some of the same ingredients that is due to what veggies and meat I have available. At the moment we have a lot of chicken and beef mince in the freezer and the usual veggies โ€“ pumpkin, cabbage, brinjals, spinach, zucchini, tomato, mushrooms, onions, carrots, sweet potato (that I steamed and froze in small portions) & turnips.

I have been looking for golden flaxseeds (linseeds) for quite a while now, as Iโ€™ve heard that it has a milder taste than the darker seeds Iโ€™ve been wanting to try them to taste for myself. Finally I found some at our local health shop so on Friday I used it to make some of my Banting bread and some Flaxseed wraps. The results where great and I donโ€™t think Iโ€™ll ever use the dark flaxseeds again, the taste and colour of the golden seeds is so much nicer and my bread taste so much better. Next things I want to try with the golden flaxseeds is making the Fathead Pizza dough and baking a cake (by replacing the almond flour with the golden flaxseed flour) to see how it turns out and how it tastes.

I really need a cooking/baking day or two where I can try new recipes and even make some old ones. I did make a batch of tomato sauce, mixed some BBQ spice and curry powder this week, I was all out so HAD to make them ๐Ÿ˜‰

Just a reminder if you want more info about my menus or cooking tips or recipes or just want to share in the day-to-day life of a low carber, please join our Facebook Page.

Thatโ€™s it from me for today, have a good one ๐Ÿ˜‰
