Let us know how it goes.
I made Seitan about 30 years ago (didn't know it was called that at that time) by stirring and then kneading whole wheat flour under running water until it formed a rubbery glob. I didn't have any good recipes for it and just fried it up in a bit of butter. At that time I didn't feel it was worth the trouble but since I was a vegetarian then it was something that I experimented with. The pictures on the link I posted really make it look appetizing. I might try it again using Vital Wheat Gluten.

BTW, way back when I was making bread regularly in my Zojirushi machine I used a bit of Vital Wheat Gluten in my whole wheat recipe. It really made a difference in how the bread turned out. It removed the heaviness, was nice and perfect for sandwiches.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it's a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they're terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Sad, isn't it how our bodies won't let us get away with certain things as we get older. I would live on artisan, crusty bread and butter and cheese if I could always eat what I wanted. I use to eat a lot of that sort of thing. Probably that's what started my sensitivity to wheat...maybe, who knows.
Bummer.

When I eat "bready" foods, I get the WORST gas. It seems if I keep my carb intake (bready carbs) on the low side, I fell much better.

I've not yet been "diagnosed" with hypothyroid because all the conventional tests say I don't have a problem but after doing a little research (honestly just a little) I have found that those tests are sadly lacking in their ability to really tell if a person is hypothyroid.

All that to say that for the past few years I have noticed that when I eat most grains I get bloated, I gain weight and just feel lousy all over. Not terribly but still, quite noticeable. When I stay off grains, particularly wheat I feel lots better and the bloat goes away. I have also been taking non-prescription supplements to help the thyroid. I'm feeling lots better. I also stopped drinking so much coffee; hardly drink any anymore. My appetite has cooled its jets and I am more able to control how much I eat. this is a GOOD thing as I was ravenous before.

Just thought I'd share that in case it helps anyone.

For lunch today I had apple slices dipped in freshly made guacamole. It was so good and so filling! That's 1/4 an avocado and 1/2 a medium sized apple. This is how I'm eating these days and I don't feel deprived!! I think eating so many starchy carbs is not good for us; especially the bready kind. I'm saving that sort of thing for "special".

Yeah, ever since high school when I was diagnosed with thyroid, I gave up bread. Never eat sandwhiches etc, however, I will use lettuce and make a cucumber sandwhich or turkey and alphala sprouts. People give me a hard time but I dont' let comments bother me. It is challenging sometimes to eat a burger with no bun. :)

Last night we had turkey burgers on the grill and wrapped them in butter lettuce instead of the buns. :)

Thanks Ani for posting...yes i do this daily and its so easy if you do it before hand. I can have a salad ready with over 5 to 10 things in ten minutes. Never an excuse to not eat healthy. Love to dip the lettuce leaves in dressing or cut the heartier leaves off and lay an apple slice on it with a little almond butter and roll up for a sandwhich. :) YUM, thanks!

I actually don't use mixes of any kind...
I have never made Bernaise sauce, but I found this recipe. I would just use unsalted butter. And just use a LITTLE bit of sauce on my food.
Better yet, I like to make a MOCK Hollandaise sauce for asparagus.
recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detai
l.
asp?recipe=1280904



CLASSIC BERNAISE SAUCE
This classic French sauce is made from a reduction of butter, vinegar, and wine mixed with tarragon and thickened with egg yolks. It is served with meat, fish, eggs, and vegetables.
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Ingredients:

* 1/2 pound (2 sticks) unsalted butter
* 4 shallots, finely chopped
* 2 tablespoons fresh tarragon leaves
* 4 white peppercorns, crushed
* 1/4 cup white wine vinegar
* 1/3 cup dry white wine
* 4 large egg yolks
* 1/4 teaspoon salt
* Pinch of cayenne

Preparation:
Heat the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat just to melt. Boil shallots, tarragon, and peppercorns in vinegar and wine in a nonreactive medium-size saucepan over medium heat until reduced to about 1/4 cup. Strain into the top of a double boiler. Whisk in the egg yolks. Place the top over the bottom of the double boiler containing simmering water. Make sure that the top of the water is below the bottom of the upper part of the double boiler. Whisk constantly. The second that the yolk mixture begins to thicken slightly, remove the top of the double boiler from above the hot water and continue whisking. Turn off the heat. Add four ice cubes to the bottom of the double boiler to cool the hot water a little. Put the pan of yolks back above the hot water. Whisk in the melted butter, drizzling it in very slowly. If at any time the sauce looks as if it is about to break, remove the top and continue whisking to cool it down or whisk in 1 teaspoon cold water. With constant whisking, whisk in the salt and cayenne. When all the butter is incorporated, taste and add more salt or cayenne as needed.

Yield: 1-1/2 cups

I found this in the recipes here on SP but me, personally would not want to use any product that had "fat free" on the label. That is usually a hint that something synthetic or unhealthy has been put in to replace the normal fat that would be in the recipe.

This isn't the "mix" you were asking about though--just a recipe for Bearnaise sauce...with asparagus

Anyone know an calory estimate for Bernaise sauce mix? I love it and was thinking about using 1/2 of the mix with some oil to cook the chicken in, which would give it the taste, but not all the fat. It cuts the butter and the milk I'm going to try it for dinner tonight. I'll post my results.

Both recipes are in the MAIN team cookbook. But, I also put The chicken enchilada casserole in Poultry Recipes & Ethnic Recipes team cookbooks. The Mexican seasoning is in Ethnic Recipes book as well as MIX Recipes.
Hmmm... maybe we should have a seasonings cookbook.

I would try equal parts of sour cream and cream cheese (or try plain yogurt). Add a little lemon juice, garlic and dill. Try it. Maybe add some sea salt. Try fresh dill or dried dill. Maybe add some pureed cucumber (like a tzatiki).

The mayo is still emulsified and is perfectly delicious. I take back all my previous yammering on how to make mayonnaise and highly recommend this technique. The oil I used for this first batch was organic, cold pressed safflower seed oil. Worked like a charm. Next time I will use part olive oil; maybe 1/3 cup. I also like to use peanut oil sometimes because of its nutty, warm flavor. I'm afraid that coconut oil would make it too firm though maybe putting just a little in would be okay for the health of it...he he

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it's a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they're terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

I just tried out the mayonnaise recipe in our team cookbook that uses an immersion blender whipping the whole thing up at once. I am totally amazed. The recipe says it will take 2 minutes but it was more like 2 seconds! It happened so fast that I didn't have time to raise the blender up so there was still a little bit of oil on the top. I couldn't do anything about that because the mayo was done; I mean DONE! It was so thick that the blender was seriously bogged down. Instant mayo! Now I'm going to wait and see if it stays emulsified--that will be the test.

I should mention that I didn't use a glass mayonnaise jar; I used the plastic blending cup that came with the blender that has a 2 cup capacity.

Here's an interesting chickpea salad recipe I came across just now. I'll post the link so you can read about "Arame" for those of you who might not be familiar. And besides, this looks like a good website especially for vegans

I was just looking through our team cookbook and see that there's mayonnaise recipes already there. As you can see by looking at them there are different ways to make mayonnaise. I've never done the all-in-the-jar version before. I think I'm going to try it. I'm just wondering if it holds together very well for very long since everything goes in together and then you just use an immersion blender to emulsify it. I've got to (forgive the pun) give it a whirl!

I have taken dried cherries, cranberries, apricots, dried apple, etc. and mixed them with a multitude of nuts. Great energy bars. You can mix and match all kinds of ways... Can add coconut, cocoa or other flavorings too. YUM!

I found your very lovely cookbook today,Ms.FIT_HAWG.
Thank you!
Spark's email recipe today had a snack idea of putting raisins, almonds and cinnamon in a blender to chop & mix ingredients. No baking. Just a sticky snack. I think you could eat them separately and call it minimalistic trail mix without the clean up.
