weigh in

Well, I weighed in and lost anything at all!!! Oh well, I am still working on how to do this as a low carb and gluten free/dairy free. I didn't gain weight so that at least I can be proud of.

On a completely unrelated note, Princess Belle came home and asked for pancakes for Pancake Day. I looked up a recipe and made her some gluten free (NOT LOW CARB) pancakes that turned out really well. I also made a syrup that was extremely popular with her and Prince Charming (IT WASN'T LOW CARB EITHER)

Here is the gluten free Pancake:

Gluten Free/Casein Free Buckwheat Pancakes

  • 1 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1/2 cup rice flour
  • 1-1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 Tbs. sugar
  • 1-1/2 cup almond milk
  • 3 Tbs. canola oil
  • 3 Tbs. molasses
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla
Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. In a medium bowl, whisk together wet ingredients. Add wet mixture to dry mixture and whisk until combined--do not overmix. Pour by 1/3 cupfuls onto preheated and greased griddle. Serve hot with syrup.

gluten free dairy free Syrup

1 1/2 cups water
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon gluten free margarine
1 tablespoon flavoring of your choice. (I used strawberry)

Stir and heat syrup until sugar is clear and it turns slightly golden. (about 3 or 4 minutes).

Maintaining is a great thing. And you'll get it right. It just takes some experimenting...

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
