Nearly Perfect Sandwich Bread – Low Carb, Gluten Free

Sandwich Bread Sliced

Introduction

As you’ve seen my previous recipes with cheesy, herb bread and banana bread, we like bread. But we don’t like the high carbs and high glycemic index of most breads. Yet we love sandwiches.

So, here is a nearly perfect sandwich bread! Very low carb, ketogenic (fires up your metabolism), gluten free, and dairy free!

And finally a balance between savory and sweet that both my wife and kids enjoy.

You’ll need measuring cups, measuring spoons, a mixer, a little parchment paper, and a bread pan, in addition to the ingredients.

This recipe makes about 14 slices (give or take depending on how thick you slice) of sandwich bread and takes about an hour to make.

Ingredients

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.Then mix the dry ingredients plus the eggs in a countertop mixer (like my KitchenAid KSM75WH Classic Plus Series 4.5-Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer, White from Amazon). Warm the coconut oil for a minute in the microwave until melted. Then mix in the oils.I like to mix a minute or two at high speed to let the eggs rise as much as they can to lighten the mixture. Pour into a bread pan with parchment paper for lining. Bake for 45 minutes or until brown. Remove from the oven, place on a cooling rack, and give it 15 minutes to cool before slicing!

With this sandwich bread, prepare yourself for a much more fulfilling, satisfying, and guilt-free sandwich experience!

Shockingly Delicious Low Carb, Gluten Free, Banana Bread

Shockingly Delicious Low Carb, Gluten Free, Banana Bread

Introduction

In my house, we are trying to eliminate bread. You’ve seen my cheesy, savory, herb bread. But, my kids prefer something a little sweeter.

Not to disappoint, here is a very healthy, reduced carb, gluten free, banana bread!

My kids love it just plain, with a little butter, or made into a whole sandwich with meat and cheese, or whatever you normally put on a sandwich. Because there is no added sugar, the only sugar and the vast majority of the carbs come from the bananas themselves. So, for better fiber, prebiotic, and lower carb, go with a greener banana. I like to use two on the greener side and one on the riper side.

This is definitely not a dairy-free recipe, so those who are vegan or have a dairy allergy, you’ll need to use all almond flour and add a 1/3 cup coconut oil in place of the butter. I have tested it that way and it is delicious, too!

You’ll need measuring cups, measuring spoons, a mixer, and a bread pan, in addition to the ingredients.

This recipe makes about 20 slices of banana bread and takes about an hour to make.

Ingredients

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.Then mix the dry ingredients plus the eggs in a countertop mixer (like my KitchenAid KSM75WH Classic Plus Series 4.5-Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer, White from Amazon). Warm the coconut oil and butter for a minute or two in the microwave until melted. Then mix in the oil and butter. Pour into a bread pan with parchment paper for lining. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until brown. Remove from the oven, place on a cooling rack, and give it 10 minutes to cool before slicing!

NOTE: The greener the banana, the lower the sugar count. I use 2 on the green side and one ripe, so my banana bread is actually lower carb than this generic sugar/carb count on bananas.

Cheesy, Savory, Herb Bread – Low Carb, Keto, Gluten Free

Introduction

Like many of you, my gorgeous wife Amy prefers savory over sweet. You’ve seen my Lower Carb, Lower Glycemic, Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies and Better Peanut Butter, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Lower Carb, Lower Glycemic, Gluten-Free. and keto chocolate donuts. And now savory, cheesy, herb bread!

This is amazingly creamy, flavorful, and satisfying bread. We use it for making sandwiches or just eating plain. It is ultra-low carb, making it good for people on a keto diet, Type 1 diabetics, Type 2 diabetics, and those who just want a healthier lifestyle. Further, these are gluten-free and use coconut flour and MCT oil, making for a quickening of one’s metabolism, according to the Cleveland Clinic Wellness Center.

This is definitely not a dairy-free recipe, so those who are vegan or have a dairy allergy, you’ll need to use fake cheese instead of the cheddar I use. Although I haven’t tested that combo to see how it turns out.

You’ll need measuring cups, measuring spoons, a food processor, and a bread pan, in addition to the ingredients.

This recipe makes about 20 slices of bread and takes about an hour to make.

Ingredients

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Use the shredding blade in your food processor to shred the cheese. Then remove that blade and use the dual semi-sharp mixing blade. Add all of the remaining ingredients. Turn on the processor for a minute or two to fully blend the ingredients. Take a bread pan and line it with parchment paper. Then dole the dough into the bread pan, spreading it evenly. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until brown. Remove from the oven, place on a cooling rack, and give it 10 minutes to cool before slicing!

We Are Going to The Women’s March On Washington

We Are Going to The Women’s March On Washington

“I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn’t get there.” “Grab them by the p***y, you can do anything.”

Like when I was a child playing with a prism and the light changed, the world shifted. The Access Hollywood tape of then 59-year-old Donald J. Trump was a painful beam which seared my mind. Billy Bush got fired for giggling and asking questions, Donald J. Trump is going to be the 45th President of the United States.

The day after the inauguration, in the winter-weak sunlight on Saturday, hundreds of thousands of people will converge on our nation’s capital to protest. And I’ll join my wife and two children in attendance at the Women’s March in Washington, D.C.

Why this protest, why now? My wife, my daughter, my sisters, my nieces, my mom, my step-mom, my cousins, and every other woman in this great country have made it my priority to stop sexual abuse.

As a talk radio host and participant in the media, I am blessed with the opportunity to interact with an extraordinarily wide range of people from all walks of life. Women came out of the woodwork, sharing stories of their experiences of being sexually abused, sexually assaulted, or raped.

It isn’t just now that I’m hearing and reading about these abusive men. Throughout my life I’ve been hearing about date rape, attempted rape by a cab driver, a neighbor exposing himself and making lewd comments, groped on a crowded bus, grabbed while trying to go into a bathroom, and on and on.

No more sexual abuse, this must end. Women’s rights are human rights and not one person should suffer this abuse again.

We must fight back against this evil, exemplified by electing a man who personifies the opposite of what I teach my children. Bullying is wrong, saying horrible things about people is wrong, and sexually abusing women and girls is not only wrong, but must be stopped. This march to me is about fighting back and stopping this abuse.

While women have made many gains in our society since my great-grandmother Bearman was a suffragist in the early 20th century, there are limits to what they can do on their own. Because men are the overwhelming sexual offenders, men need to step up and help stop this epidemic. We need the good men, real men, to stand up and say enough. Males will stop grabbing, groping, and assaulting our sisters, our daughters, our mothers. Starting today we will stand up in public, stop you, and shame you like Moise Morancy did in New York. Starting today, we will stop the “locker room talk” espoused by Donald J. Trump and tell those who use those words that we will no longer tolerate it. Starting today, we say all the girls and women in our country shall be free from this scourge and can be safe from these attacks.

This is why I am going to The Women’s March On Washington. To show my children, one a boy and the other a girl, that my wife and I believe in a better world for them and I am willing to act beyond words on the radio to help make it so. To stand in solidarity with so many others that the time has come to end where males in our society feel free to abuse girls and women.

I ask for you to join me in condemning sexual abuse and to stop making excuses for those who commit these offenses. I ask for you to stand up every time you see a male sexually abusing another. I ask for you to demand our leaders stop making excuses for offenders, to stop explaining it away.

January 21st, 2017 is the day that we shall come together to work together to make our country a better place at the Women’s March in Washington, D.C. And as a result, maybe when my daughter turns 30, she and her friends won’t share stories of being sexually abused.

Plain Donuts With Butterscotch Icing, Low Carb, Keto

Plain Donuts With Butterscotch Icing, Low Carb, Keto

Introduction

I now know how much we all love doughnuts (or donuts). The feedback from my low carb, keto, chocolate doughnuts has been phenomenal. But, I also know many people with chocolate sensitivity or an outright allergy.

I spent a little time experimenting and came up with this great combo: a plain, keto, gluten-free, ulta low-carb donut, plus the least unhealthy butterscotch icing I could find.

See, the problem with butterscotch is that its base is brown sugar. None of the sugar substitutes are good at melting and caramelizing like real sugar. But I found the next best thing over at The Healthy Home Economist.

This recipe makes a dozen donuts and 100 or so servings of butterscotch for those donuts (or other delicious uses).

Ingredients

Doughnuts

Icing

  • 1/2 cup organic dark coconut sugar (lower carb and lower glycemic than brown sugar)
  • 1/2 cup organic heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup organic butter (1 stick)
  • 1/2 tsp finely ground salt
  • 2 tsp pure organic bourbon vanilla

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Warm the coconut oil so it becomes liquid. I throw it in the microwave for 60 seconds and then throw the butter in and microwave another 30 second. Then mix all the ingredients in a countertop mixer (like my KitchenAid KSM75WH Classic Plus Series 4.5-Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer, White from Amazon). Fill each well of the donut mold up to the just below the top of the center hole piece (like these Wilton 2105-1620 6 Cavity Nonstick Donut Pans (2 Pack) from Amazon). Bake for 15-18 minutes then take out.

Place a sheet of wax or parchment paper under a cooling rack. Turn the molds over to place the donuts on the cooling rack.

Icing

In a small saucepan over medium heat, throw in the butter. Once the butter is melted, stir in the sugar and whisk for a minute or two until well blended. Next, whisk in half of the cream (1/4 cup). Bring to a boil and then turn down the heat to medium-low and cook for 3-4 minutes. Stir often with the whisk and you will notice that the texture will change slightly as the mixture cooks.

Turn off heat and remove the pot from the stove. Stir in the remaining 1/4 cup heavy cream, bourbon vanilla, and salt.

Immediately pour the butterscotch sauce into a small glass jar.

Spoon the butterscotch on the donuts. Eat hot or let them cool and enjoy!

Low Carb, Keto, Chocolate Doughnuts

Ethan's Chocolate Keto Doughnuts

Introduction

Who doesn’t love a fresh, delicious doughnut (or donut)? I sure do, but can’t stand all the unhealthy ingredients and massive amounts of sugar causing damage to my body, let alone my kids.

Here is an incredibly delicious, and thoroughly healthy take on doughnuts for Chanukah. That’s right, doughnuts are part of the Hanukkah tradition for many Jews since the oil in the menorah is the miracle that lasted eight days, we eat oily foods like donuts and latkes to commemorate the rededication of the Temple!

These are gluten free, low carb, ketogenic, almost dairy free (easy to change to fully dairy free), sweet, healthy, and delicious. Plus they only take 30 minutes from start to finish.

Ingredients

Doughnuts

Icing

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Warm the coconut oil so it becomes liquid. I throw it in the microwave for 30 – 60 seconds. Then mix all the ingredients in a countertop mixer (like my KitchenAid KSM75WH Classic Plus Series 4.5-Quart Tilt-Head Stand Mixer, White from Amazon).

Bake for 15-18 minutes then take out.

While baking, whisk together the icing ingredients in a small bowl. The cacao doesn’t like to mix well so be patient.

Place a sheet of wax or parchment paper under a cooling rack. Turn the molds over to place the donuts on the cooling rack. Spoon the icing on the donuts. Eat hot or let them cool and enjoy!

Ethan Explains President Elect Trump

The election is over and Donald J. Trump won fair and square. The system is not rigged and the people spoke through their vote.

First off, don’t despair. President-elect Trump’s acceptance speech was conciliatory and sounded like a Democrat with trillions of dollars of spending for infrastructure. Who will take those jobs? I don’t know.

Further, I was glad to see Sec. Clinton and President Obama strike tones of working together. We need success from this new president or we face an even harder road ahead.

Also, many are going to say social media changed everything and traditional media lost its power. I disagree, this election was all about frustration with politics as usual, the perception of corruption, and the feeling that those in power simply don’t care about We The People. This was about the man and his message, not the medium on which it was carried.

President-elect Trump has both the House and Senate, like President Obama did, for at least his first two years. He has made some big promises, the question is will the GOP work with him on some of the big spending he is proposing.

Lastly, I am deeply concerned that President-elect Trump made it normal that people tap into their Jungian shadow. The levels of sexism, xenophobia, and downright hatred are scary. What will he do to tamp down the neo-Nazi crowd that so lovingly supported his candidacy?

I’ll have more to say on this topic today. Tune in to KGO 810 from noon to 2 p.m. Pacific time on AM 810 or online at www.kgoradio.com

Ethan Explains California Proposition 63

Ethan Explains California Proposition 63

This is number 13 of 17 of the California statewide ballot initiatives in 2016 that I’ll cover. Proposition 63 is the “The Safety for All Act of 2016.” Also known as the “Background Checks for Ammunition Purchases and Large-Capacity Ammunition Magazine Ban.”

Who doesn’t want to reduce the murder rate?

Proposition 63 claims to reduce gun crimes in the state of California by requiring background checks for the purchase of ammunition, banning possession of large capacity magazines, increasing penalties for theft of firearms, and requiring reporting for those thefts.

Requiring background checks for the purchase of ammunition

This is a newer approach by gun control advocates. The claim is that a criminal in possession of an illegal firearm still needs to buy ammunition. If we make the purchase of ammunition more difficult, they will commit fewer crimes with firearms. On the face of it, that appears logical. However, Illinois has already had this type of rule in effect for years. Yet, we consistently hear about the out of control murder rate in Chicago. The law doesn’t stop criminals and this approach hasn’t worked in Illinois other than inconveniencing legal firearm owners.

Banning possession of high capacity magazines

California banned the purchase of high capacity magazines in 2000. They are magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition. Proposition 63 seeks to outlaw them completely, including possession. So, a firearm owner who legally purchased on before 2000 will be required to dispose of it or sell it out-of-state if this initiative passes. The argument for this is that no reasonable person needs this kind of firepower. And the argument against is that these are used for sport shooting and jam quite frequently so any criminal who uses one has a significantly reduced chance of success. I am neutral on this argument.

Increasing penalties for theft of firearms

Right now in California, due to Prop 47, theft of a firearm valued less than $950 is petty theft. The maximum penalties for most petty theft convictions are a fine of up to one thousand dollars ($1,000), up to six (6) months in county jail, or both. And right now, maximum penalties for petty theft are not happening. Proposition 63 will recategorize ALL firearm thefts to felony with up to 3 years in prison, as they were before Prop 47. I strongly support this portion of the initiative.

Requiring reporting for firearm thefts

Under this initiative, sellers of ammunition would need to report a theft or loss within 48 hours. Individuals would be required to report a theft or loss within five days to local law enforcement. Right now, many criminals are acquiring their firearms through theft, like the Kate Steinle killer. In order to help law enforcement track stolen firearms a reporting requirement is a sensible approach. Plus, any rational firearm owner would want law enforcement to know the date their weapon was stolen so if it is used in a crime in the future, they aren’t a suspect. This section is entirely logical.

The problem with Proposition 63, like so many others, is that instead of focusing on a single issue, many are combined into one. I can support portions of this initiative, but not others. Further, this is a political move by Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom to burnsih his anti-gun credentials before the 2018 gubernatorial election. Infringing constitutional rights without evidence to support the intended conclusion sits poorly with me. Properly use the legislature to pass the reasonable sections.

I say NO to Proposition 63.
