Please feel free to shoot darts at me for not fully understanding this...but your original
recipe says it calls for 1/3 cup of cocoa.  Perhaps this is just the way I'm comprehending you but
you just said above in your quote that you posted using 2/3 of a cup...That's why I'm confused.

Can I assume 1/3 cup of cocoa is the correct amount of cocoa to use, but you used 2/3 cup by mistake?

So, if this is the case and I'm finally making sense out of this, was using 2/3 cup of cocoa too much?

Whew...I'm ducking now to get out of the way of your oncoming dart gun~

- I think the point is she used 2/3 cup cocoa powder and was happy with the results. We are encouraged to play with the recipe and find whatever amts and ingredients (sweetners) work for us.

Got it...I used 1/3 cup of carob and it was a bit dry.  So I'm going to have to play with my
ingredients.  It was good, but I'm sure it would have tasted far better with cocoa.

Exactly! Lol don't worry about communicating till you fully understand. I love communication! Just as long as people are purposely trying to antagonize me. Which I know you aren't.

So in my recipe on this thread I wrote the recipe with 1/3 cup cocoa. When I made it I doubled the cocoa because I had used cocoa in the recipe instead of white sugar as the original had called for. But of course because I'm doing a white sugar, white flour free diet... I used agave instead.

So to correct this. When I made the recipe I used 2/3 cocoa and used agave instead of sugar. If you use sugar it might be easier to just go with the original 1/3 rd.

I totally get your recipe now...I love that it's possible to hide black beans in brownies...
Think of all the other great stuff that could be hidden in brownies....beets?  spinach?
kale?

Maybe this is a good question for your hijacking thread...."What healthy foods can you hide in brownies that you can't taste?"

Thanks for not shooting me....

I actually have a cupcake business I'm winding down on as it doesn't fit with my btd beliefs. Which is tough because I enjoyed the creative aspect of it. (This was all on a previous thread I wrote about.)

The point I'm getting to... when I made anything that required a red or pink color I used beets. My red velvet cupcakes were to dye for. lol

I am thinking of making some zucchini bread later today. With spelt and oatmeal flour.

Someone, somewhere (it could be in the recipe database) posted a chocolate cream pie made with avocados. So, anything is possible!

Welcome Serenity....

Any food not listed in the book is considered to be neutral.  So, yes, you can eat it.

Quoted from purlgirl
raingurl  - How are you doing with your Swami program? - getting adjusted?


I finally saw this.  I got off of Swami for awhile because I was just... lazy.  I have been back on at being 95% compliant for 3 days now.  I know that doesn't seem much but that is the most % I've been for that many days.  Going back into at this time has really been eye opening.  I have learned a lot about my body type from being a teacher and are using it to my advantage.  As well as I'm not looking at my foods as restrictive.  That was where I went wrong before.  Instead of talking about the foods I couldn't have anymore I started thinking about what I could have.  That changed my perspective this time.  I'm pretty excited that its so much easier this time around. Thanks for asking and sorry I didn't respond any sooner!

I'm confused about    Lima/Butter Beans GT Book says:

Lima beans:     Avoid for everyone but Hunters and Gatherers.

Butter Beans:      Gatherers  &  Explorers - Diamond
                         Hunters   &  Teachers  - not listed (neutral ?)
                         Warriors  -  Beneficial                      
                         Nomads  -  Avoid

Looked up Lima beans in BT Typebase:

"…In the South, dried Limas are frequently referred to as Butter Beans.. ."

So are Butter Beans just dried Limas?
If so does that mean they are OK in the Dried form but not Fresh?

"butter bean" is a type of lima bean (presumably a Toxin)

Lola I reread what you shared about Lima/Butter beans.  

Did a little more research :

http://www.gardeningknowhow.com/vegetable/growing-butter-beans-in-your-garden.htm  
Varieties of butter beans
Butter beans come in a wide variety. Some are bush beans, such as Fordhook, Henderson, Eastland and Thorogreen. Others are pole or climber beans, such as Yellow, Christmas, King of the Garden and Florida
.

I was thinking one could grow their own and be sure to get the right kind but you would need to know the exact name of the variety to be safe. So I'll just skip them for now. I'm sure SWAMI will answer the question for me for good.

Thanks for helping.

Quoted Text
GT3 teachers should always pre-soak poultry in cold water for at least five minutes, changing the water at least 3-4 times


Does everyone do this and what is it for does anyone know? I haven't been doing it, but it seems easy enough to do I guess, but I am just wondering what difference it makes.

Ladyhawk - boy  O boy - I so do wish I had an  answer for you.

I just read it myself ( soak chicken in cold water, change 3 or 4 times)   ???

All I can say is :    I will try it --- maybe it draws out undesirable stuff from the chicken? There is so much gunk in our food. ???

I'll try it and see what I can learn.  I do trust DR D's judgement.

Maybe the cold soak effect flavor - I'm all for that. !
It is a little thing.

Yes I presume it draws something out too, Purlgirl. I am not sure we will actually notice anything from doing it - but I'd like to know the reason behind it
