I just tweaked the candied nut recipe, and wanted to offer this update and include a more appealing picture as well.
One egg white
Several drops of stevia
One teaspoon of cinnamon
Scraping of a vanilla bean (or vanilla extract if you can find the alcohol and sugar free kind)
Three cups of nuts (I used walnuts in this pic)
Mix the egg white, stevia, cinnamon, and vanilla in the bottom of a large bowl. Add the nuts and stir them around until thoroughly coated.
Line a baking pan with parchment paper and spread the nuts around as evenly as possible.
Bake at 250 F. degrees for about 30 minutes.
The old recipe said 60 minutes...look at the pic by that recipe and you'll see what happened compared to the 30 minutes with this pic.
I just found something really wonderful!
A friend of mine who knows about my diet brought me something called "Skinny Pasta." It's not actually pasta...it's a plant from Japan.
Here's the description from one website:
What is Konjac?
Konjac is a plant native to Japan and has been used there for hundreds of years. We harvest the Konjac roots to create noodles in different shapes. Konjac contains fiber and absorbs water to help you feel full.
Skinny Pasta's Noodles Shape Konjac Noodles are made without GMOs and additives so your family can enjoy their favorite Noodles dishes without sacrificing taste or flavor. Skinny Pasta's Noodles Shape Konjac Noodles are a great alternative to Noodles. A smart complement to meals or alternative in family favorite recipes.
Noodles Shaped Konjac Noodles are a versatile, convenient choice which are precooked and ready to heat in the microwave for 2 minutes on high.
Skinny Pasta's Noodles Shape Konjac Noodles are made from Skinny Pasta's proprietary formula and are ODOR FREE.
Try the other varieties:
Couscous • Spaghetti • Lasagna • Rice • Fetticcine
Ok...back to my post now...
It's so easy to cook too...
All you do is rinse it off in a colander and shake it a bit to dry it off.
I sauteed it in butter and then added some dried herbs, and it was very tasty.
It kind of tastes like nothing...so it picks up the flavors of the things you add to it.
There are only ten calories per serving and the net carbs come out to zero (five carbs minus five grams of fiber).
My friend said she bought this at Sprouts, but you can get it on Amazon too.
I'm starting to think of other recipes to use this in as well.
