Best Blueberry Pancakes

Best Blueberry Panckaes

Who doesn’t love pancakes? How about a pancake that provides a wide range of nutrition for your body and still tastes delicious? Try these best blueberry pancakes that I make for my family! This recipe makes 8 medium, medium-large pancakes.

Ingredients

Get a medium to medium-large mixing bowl out. Mix the dry ingredients first, then add in the we ingredients, and stir in the blueberries last. Fire up your favorite griddle or pan (my favorite for pancakes is this All-Clad Griddle found on Amazon and elsewhere) on medium. Use a spoon to ladle out the batter into the pancakes. Wait until they start to turn brown around the edges, turn the heat down to low, and flip them. Let cook for another 2-4 minutes and serve!

My family can’t get enough of these bluberry pancakes. And for syrup, if you are looking for low carb, we use just a little of the Lakanto Maple Flavored Syrup. And if you like butter, remember to get pasture raised or French/Swiss/Italian A2 protein butter.

And if you didn’t notice, these are low carb for those who are type 1 or type 2 diabetic, on a ketogenic diet (or Atkins), or simply looking to cut down on simple carbs which science is showing has seriously negative health effects.

FNC Happening Now – Repair or Replace ObamaCare

Push to repeal, replace ObamaCare turning into adjust, wait?

Ian Prior, communications director for American Crossroads, and Ethan Bearman, radio talk show host, join the debate

Thank you to Fox News Channel for having me back on Happening Now with host Jon Scott to discuss the state of the Republicans and their approach to health care. My fellow panelist is Ian Prior communications director for American Crossroads to defend the Republican approach.

Is it going to be repair or replace the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare)? Senators Lamar Alexander and Orrin Hatch seem to be leaning toward repair.

I argue that nobody is addressing the core issues at hand such as patient/doctor relationships, food, and exercise.

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!

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). 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.

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 Antibiotic Health Crisis

Ethan Explains Antibiotic Health Crisis

Popping pills whenever you don’t feel well, having unprotected sex, and eating antibiotic laced foods have become a health crisis. No really, doctors are running out of antibiotic drugs for addressing multiple bacterial infections with potentially dire outcomes for you and me. We are in the midst of an antibiotic health crisis.

First of all, taking antibiotics went you don’t feel well without knowing if it is a bacterial infection is leading to significant antibiotic resistance as the bacteria rapidly develop immunity.

Second, your hedonistic unprotected sex with multiple partners has now created an antibiotic resistant gonorrhea. Gross.

Third, our food supply is being jammed with antibiotics which passes through to us, creating more antibiotic resistance.

Stop popping pills, or expecting your doctor to prescribe antibiotic pills without knowing why you are sick. Stop having unprotected sex, period. And start buying organic and demanding that your food not be flooded with antibiotics.

We can make a difference in this health crisis. Only use antibiotics when necessary.

Ethan Explains Bayer Buys Monsanto

Ethan Explains Bayer Buys Monsanto

Who owns your food? Well, with Bayer AG buying Monsanto for $66 billion, one giant company is about to own nearly every aspect of the food chain.

Yes, that’s right, they’ll own it. Because Monsanto produces Genetically Modified Organism (GMO) seed and Bayer makes the farm chemicals, they will own it. They own it because each of those components the farmer relies on is patented. They’re able to patent that seed because they’ve modified it through genetic engineering. Then they own what you eat and have the financial clout to “own” members of Congress and the Senate in those farm states.

The agricultural policy of the United States is skewed in favor of these big companies because of their financial clout. It is not in favor of the farmers or the consumer (you and me,)  I had a Midwestern farmer/rancher friend explain to me how the giant ag companies pay for crops right below the subsidized price so the farmer makes little and the agri-giant makes money from the federal subsidies and own the supply chain marking up the food to the food manufacturing companies. Our tax dollars make Monsanto and Bayer AG their profits.

Do you think a giant, German based, multi-national, mega-corporation should own a huge chunk of the food supply?

Low Carb, Gluten Free, Nearly Paleo Bread

Low Carb, Gluten Free, Nearly Paleo Bread

Whether you are a body-builder, a diabetic, have celiac or Crohn’s disease, there are many reasons that eating regular store bought or homemade bread might not be your thing. We have family in more than one of those categories and have been greatly disappointed with the products we can buy online or in the store. So, I decided it was high time I make a low carb, gluten free, nearly paleo bread.

I began by scouring the Internet for body builder and diabetic sites for ideas. I found a couple for inspiration (Bulletproof Bread and Soul Bread), and as I always do, came up with my own version.

This is definitely low carb (in the 1 to 1.5g carb per slice range), gluten free, and I am not into paleo but think this almost meets the paleo diet as well.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. First whip the egg whites until firm. Then melt the butter (I do it in a microwave safe ceramic dish). Follow by pouring the remaining ingredients in the mixing bowl with the egg whites and blend thoroughly. Pour into bread pan of your choice, I use a standard bread pan with parchment paper for lining. Bake for 45 minutes or brown to your liking. Let stand for 5 minutes and slice away!

Ingredients:

This recipe only took me about 10 minutes to prep and about the same 10 minutes for clean up in the kitchen.
