½  tbsp. vanilla

Brown Rice Pudding

Can be chilled and you can also use oatmeal in place of the rice for a oatmeal custard meal. Can be cooked on the stovetop as well, be sure to stir as it cooks. You can use the fresh strawberry sauce or applesause as a topping

 

½ cup cooked brown rice
2 egg whites
1 teaspoon vanilla
dash cinnamon
1/4 to1/8 tsp Stevia Extract Powder

Whisk egg whites until fluffy and mix in the cooked rice, vanilla, cinnamon, and Stevia. Cook on the stove top for a few minutes stirring every 30 seconds to keep eggs well mixed.
Perfect Oat Pie crust
6 egg whites (can use NatureEgg Simply egg whites)
¾ cup finely ground oats (ground in blender, food processor or coffee grinder)
1/8 to 1/4 tsp Stevia Extract Powder
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1½ teaspoon almond extract

Mix it all together in a glass bowl then put in a saucepan on the stove. Keep an eye on it, and let it get just to the point where it has a nice texture. It should be stirred every 30 seconds. Take it out and let it cool some. Then press it into a pie pan shaping with your fingers. You may have to wet your fingers with water  to keep it from sticking to you. Then pour in your pie filling and bake as you would any pie. It turns out so good, just seeing that pie crust under her pie really did it for one clien.

For all you GREAT bakers out there who might be able to add whatever kind of flavoring to your crust, go ahead, but make sure you share if you come up with an even better crust.


(Without filling) This Recipe Contains: Protein A, Carb B

In using this recipe, please keep in mind that the filling used is going to limit its use to certain meals (for example, for some members, fruit filled desserts may only be used as preworkout snacks.) In determining portion size, you’ll need to figure the total raw ingredients used for both filling and crust. In doing so, please keep in mind that oats double in volume when cooked and regardless of how they are used, your measurement should be based on the assumption that ¼ cup of raw oats equals a ½ cup Carb portion.

RAW CHOCOLATE CACAO

It is preferred to use the beans or nibs in recipes as they are less processed, & the cocoa butter keeps it more stable.

  • Combine equal amounts of raw cacao, nuts or seeds (pre-soaked if possible)   in a blender.
  • Sweeten with blue agave, yacon syrup, Stevia or Lo Han Extract.
  • Add cinnamon, creamed coconut or vanilla to taste.
  • Chill before moulding for ease of handling.
  • Press into balls or into a tray and cut into required bars/bite size pieces.
  • For smoother chocolates blend the cacao & nuts fine to start, or use powdered cacao (it has a slightly stronger taste so you will need less).
  • Will keep in the fridge for 2-3 days or up to two weeks if the nuts or seeds have been pre soaked & dehydrated.
