i found this recipe for flax bread on the forum but i was wondering if anyone knew the breakdown of it for fitday or how to enter the separate ingredients to get the combined breakdown of the prot,fat etc.
This is what I use, but if you look up in the Recipes (look up by the Atkins Diet Bulletin Board bar) you can find Book's recipes.
I use a small Tupperware bowl, or a small soup bowl.
Two TBS melted butter
Beat in one large egg and a pinch of salt (no need if your butter is salted)
mix in 3 TBS of ground flax and
1/2 tsp of baking powder
let sit for a moment, then nuke. My microwave takes about a minute and 20 seconds. Start with a minute, and go until there is no wet spot in the centre.
Let cool for a minute, and turn it out onto a rack to cool. Slice into 3 slices and enjoy.
If you haven't been eating flax, then 3 TBS is WAY too much to scarf down in one sitting. Start with a slice a day and see how you feel.
Flax is great for combating constipation, but too much of it is NOT a good thing.
I like to have a slice for breakfast and a slice for lunch...spread it out through the day...my system really likes that.
You can add things to it, like oregano, garlic powder, or whatever floats your boat!
You can make a sweet one too, but I found that plain or savoury is much more versatile.
