Re: STARCH -FREE- is it possible?

Thanks ljbritt.  My friend has a very complex set of health problems and is seen on a regular bais by the most highly educated, top medical specialists.  I am not the person in question, it is a friend of mine.  In this country, we have very high standards for medicine, it is our health insurance that is a problem.

Chrissa, a friend of mine used to make something similiar, but they  had sesame seeds added and were baked in the oven. I had forgotten all about them!

Re: STARCH -FREE- is it possible?

I have made cheese crisps on a silpat baking sheet liner.  Worked well and then I thought I might try to line a silpat muffin pan with cheese to make little crisp cups for holding whatever, maybe a fancy salad.

Chrissa, I'm glad it went well.

Re: STARCH -FREE- is it possible?

I'm glad things went well too Chrissa! I really liked the idea of making them into cups ... they would be excellent filled with appetizers like tuna salad, apple/carrot salad or salsa. Thank you MsPablo smile

Re: STARCH -FREE- is it possible?

JoyYamDaisy inspired me to take the cheese crisps to the next level. I haven't tried the cups yet MsPablo, but they are on my agenda! Here's what my new cheese crisps look like with the use of an egg poaching ring and the addition of pisachio nuts.

Re: STARCH -FREE- is it possible?

There is no such thing as a diabetic diet these days, its how we should ALL be eating (unless you are on a specific disease related diet with the need to reduce certain things like potassium etc). Have a look at your plate, it should be like this http://www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov/articl … &id=F1

Avoiding things all together such as starchy veges and fruits is just not good for you in the long run. You can still have them, its just the amount you have that is important.
