Zuchinni and Cheese Coconut flour Bread..

Hello Friends,

How is everyone doing this weekend? Yesterday Hubby and I went to the movies again. He always wants to go and see 2 cause he says it costs too much money and he feels like it is wasted if we only see 1 like we pay for. LOL.

So I just go along with it for him, it would be fine for me to just see 1. We saw Footlose first. I have to say I was so very disappointed big time. It was exactly like the original. What they said, what they wore. There was nothing different at all! I loved the original with Kevin Bacon.

Next we snuck into Real Steel, with Hugh Jackman. The one where the robots fight. I thought it was great! All the excitement of boxing w/o having to see the blood and violence. And Yeah I had popcorn.

Yesterday I made some spinach bread - on my recipe page.
And I made coconut pancakes for breakfast again this morning. I ate them w/cream cheese and natures hollow on top w/turkey bacon and some berries. Very good!

Lunch I had a spinach salad w/shredded beef, cheese, artichokes, a spoon of Fage yogurt (no sour cream), and I put some Kraft horseraddish sauce on top.

Gives it a little zing.

This afternoon I made the Zuchinni and cheese coconut flour bread. I have to say it was VERY GOOD!! I just ate it plain and warm.

For all of you coconut flour lovers, I have found that by putting 2 tsp of baking pwdr and 1 tbsp of Braggs apple cider vinegar in the bread makes it come out much better. BTW.
I lined the whole pan with parchment paper. It came out so easy that way.
Recipe on the recipe page....

I have to say that I am really loving the coconut flour recipes. All of them. I know you have heard me say that I really need to eat at least 1-2 grain carbs a day to feel good. Coconut flour is not a grain but when I eat it - it feels like it is to me. It is filling and can be made in so many different ways.

Tomorrow I am gonna make the pizza recipe Jorge posted using Almond flour. Of you don't have the recipe I will post after I make it and tell you if it's good first.

One more picture I could not resist. My Peachy Poo sleeping this morning. I snuck up on her..

Thanks for listening everyone. Lots of love to you all. remember - WWRD??

My thought for the day:

Believe in Yourself

sucess spaceshipPeople become really quite remarkable when they start thinking that they can do things. When they believe in themselves they have the first secret of success.

Keep on BFC ' n  :-)


  1. Hey Rosie! The zuchinni bread looks great! Thanks for being the first to try it out! I did make the pizza that Jorge posted about, with the almond flour, and I wasn't really impressed with it! Actually, I was downright disappointed. I'm not a great cook (horrible, actually) so maybe I did it wrong, but I much prefer using the Sara Lee Pita's for the crust of the pizza. I still haven't made the cauliflower crust and need to do that, but I don't have a food processor. Do you think if I blended (instead of shredding) the steamed cauliflower in a blender, it would work?

    PS-Your puppy looks so sweet sleeping upside down like that. Dogs showing their belly like that mean they feel safe with you :)

  2. We have not seen a movie in awhile but I am wanting to see 50/50 have you seen that one yet? I made the Chocolate coconut bread today and cant wait to try that one today. I am so happy that you, Amber and Dawn like to cook and try different recipes for us to try. I hate to cook but if I know it is easy and good I am game. Thanks for sharing.

  3. KEVIN BACON!!! I am so unsure about this whole remake of footloose thing. I guess I'll have to go see it, but I'm afraid I'll be disappointed too.

    Love that parchment paper idea! I've used wax paper on the bottom, but I usually just use my silicon bakeware to get away from the problem.

    I'll have to try the baking powder and apple cider trick. Sounds promising.

    I have it on my list to try out that pizza crust, too. I'm not sure. it doesn't seem like it would hold together. Guess we'll see!

  4. Carey, hopefully you will see this.

    to shred the cauliflower - just use a cheese shredder if you don't have a food processor. :-)

  5. I love the coconut flour too, it helps me stay satisfied. Thanks for the tip about adding some apple cider vin to help with the dryness. Have a wonderful day :)

  6. I have to say, I made my first loaf of coconut bread. I added the walnuts and cinnamon. It seemed very thick, but put it in the pan and baked it. OMG! It is soooo good!

  7. The bread looks great! I agree that the coconut flour seems too good to be true. But I really find the FT makes me look at food differently and search for alternatives. Let me know if you make the pumpkin muffins or not. I changed the recipe a little from what I emailed you. They are really moist.

  8. I will do my second coconut bread tomorrow. I don't like coconut and want to "hide" the taste. Do you think cinamon will help with that? Or maybe cream cheese. Any ideas anyone? I have always hated store-bought oatmeal cookies because most have that "coconut" taste. I haven't heard anyone disliking coconut on these blogs. What to do if you don't like the taste and want to hide it?

  9. Linda I hate the taste of processed coconut. The coconut flour tastes different and not quite like coconut. Try the cinnamon or chocolate or lemon. Look on the recipe tab, I put what I liked with each flavor :-)

  10. Thanks, Rosie! I'll try the grater. :)

Some tips if you are having trouble

  • First make sure that you are staying under the 15/6. 15 sugars and 6 servings of carbs for the whole day. Thats no more than 5 sugars and 2 servings of carbs per meal.
  • Track all of your sugar/carbs. Add everything from your meal together and count them that way.
  • Try to stop eating whole grain carbs after 3pm.
  • Make sure you drink lots of water.
  • Count everything that you put into your mouth. Even sauces - everything , check labels.
  • Make sure that you don't eat any artificial sugars. Check labels, if it says sugar free - look in the ingredients, look for....sucralose, aspartame, saccharine in the ingredients. Those are BAD!
  • Going #2 is a big problem when a lot of people start the BFC. I have solved that problem with Clear Benefiber in my morning coffee and a scoop of Super Seed w/water in the afternoon. (you can buy the super seed on Amazon.com it is the cheapest).
  • Choose your carbs wisely. Try to pick the carbs that will give you the lowest count of carbs, sugar and calories and the most fiber.

I hope this helps.
