Thank you, Rod, for the latest information and recipes.

I must say that I love Collard greens and just about any greens to be honest. It is nice to know that I am doing my body good by eating them.

Re: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/arti ... rinks.html
" 'Game-changer' weight-loss drug is making people repulsed by their favorite food and drinks" :o

"Experts (claim) these taste distortions occur because the drug alters the brain's ability to tell what is going into a person's mouth - causing a taste disorder called dysgeusia. The condition causes certain food and drink to seem sweet, sour, bitter, or metallic." :roll:

:hithere Must be true, this brain-altering feature! My mother insisted that her young children take a certain magnesia laxative product once a month mixed in chocolate milk. Thereafter, I didn't like chocolate milk for 20 years! ... and never returned to the earlier fondness of this sweet drink.
Interestingly, 100% cacao (no sweetener) seems more appealing in these recent decades. ;)

Who knew :?: :!: Freshly cut pineapple, briefly soaked in a cup of cold water
with 2-3 packets of this True Lemon, have less refrigerated browning ...
and the mild lemon flavor is complementary! :roll

Somehow, these packets work better than fresh lemon juice. :?

Thanks Rod,

That seems a great dish after all the over eating of the Thanksgiving holiday.

Sandy, This has suddenly become a breakfast staple (good for other meals)
because most grain carbs easily raise blood sugar. This upscaled combo
complements protein, fat, carbs/fiber (advised by nutritionists).

Pumpkin Lupin Hummus

Post by Amigoo » Fri Nov 25, 2022 9:53 pm

Pumpkin Lupin Hummus
aka "What else to do with lupin flour" :roll:

:idea: A more refreshing, veggie-oriented flavor and texture,
distanced from culinary ambience of traditional hummus. 8)

:roll Ingredients:

15oz can pumpkin puree
1/3 rounded cup lupin flour
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
2/3 cup veggie broth
2 tbsp dried cilantro
1/2 tsp garlic granules
1/2 tbsp paprika
1 cup chunky mild salsa

:arrow: Directions:

Combine, then refrigerate.


:idea: See also: https://thelupinco.com.au/frequently-asked-questions/

"our Lupin Flakes are safe to eat raw should you wish to consume them in this way.
It is very much a matter of your own taste and personal preference!

Australian Lupins have very low levels of the 'anti-nutrients' typically found in other legumes (e.g. soy and beans)
which do require a soaking and cooking process. You don’t need to cook Lupin Flakes to make the protein
or any other nutrients bio available and there is no loss of nutrients on moderate heating." 8)

Green Banana Noggin'

Post by Amigoo » Mon Nov 28, 2022 11:37 pm

:bana: Try a Green Banana Noggin' :!:

Pour eggnog over diced green banana (resistant starch raises blood sugar less),
then sprinkle on nutmeg. You soon be joggin' to the store for more! ;)

See also: https://bebodywise.com/blog/green-banana/
"Green Banana: Benefits, Calories, Side Effects & More"

"The glycemic index of green bananas is somewhere between 30 and 50.
Food items with a glycemic index of less than 55 get digested and metabolized slowly.
This way, they curb sudden surges in blood sugar levels. Plus, green bananas contain
vitamin B6 that helps control glucose, especially in people with type-2 diabetes." 8)

:idea: Tips: Don't guzzle the eggnog unless you really be joggin'. :roll:
Add unflavored milk or protein powder to thicken ... or upscale
and combine 1 cup nonfat plain yogurt with 2 cups eggnog. :roll

Sounds great, Rod...these green bananas. I adore eggnog which is plentiful this time of year so this could be a match made in heaven. Though, I think I may have made a mistake when I put it into the index. For some reason I was picturing the diced green bananas a little bigger with just enough eggnog to make it sort of a fruity side dish. However now I am picturing them tiny... Should I put Green Banana Noggin' under beverage in the index?

I am dying to try this. My daughter and I were just talking about the difficulty consuming green banana. (taste-wise) But it sounds the benefits are many, especially if you are diabetic.
Thank you.

xxSandy


"Fruity Side Dish" is best!

"Noggin' " is a fun word (with weak association with "eggnog")
and can refer to a culinary action ("I'll be noggin' today") ...
but specifically with green bananas. :lol:

Rod

Thanks Rod! I had it under casseroles. (Haven't a clue why I put it there. :roll: :) ) I moved it to misc..
Seemed the best fit.
