Re: George's Recipe Corner

No idea how many that makes, so I took a stab at serving 12. I'm doing this all in my head, so please don't think I've made these. Maybe I'll give them a try this weekend.

Spinach Balls

Ingredients:
4 cups spinach, fresh, heads chopped, cooked (as above), drained well
1 cup flaxseed meal
1 onion, large, chopped fine
6 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup butter, melted
cup cheese, Romano or Parmesean grated
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon ground black pepper
teaspoon thyme
1 tablespoon oregano

Directions:
Mix all ingredients together and form into loose balls. Bake at 350 degrees on a greased cookie sheet about 20 minutes until spinach balls are brown. Serve as a side dish to fish, meat or chicken.

Re: George's Recipe Corner

I don't know if exact numbers matter so much for the zone, but I modified the pancakes recipe to try and fit the 7/9/3 P/C/F ratio. This has not been tested to work in the kitchen. It just looked to me like the original recipe was high on carbs and low on protein.

1/4 cup buckwheat flour
1/2 cup blueberries
3 eggs
1 tbsp flax seed meal

hmmm, this is more exact but might not taste or work well.
1/4 cup buckwheat flour
4 egg whites
4 tbsp flax seed meal

EDIT: I think I am officially being ridiculous. I am just trying to create the go to meal for breakfast that I can make quickly. I have run out of my dining hall money because replacing grains with veggies and fruits that get weighed added up faster than I thought.

Re: George's Recipe Corner

4 pancakes of the original = 4C, 4P, 6F. Not sure where you saw high carb. Remember you have to cut out fiber from the total carb when determining blocks from homemade recipes.

Re: George's Recipe Corner

George is definitely the man on these forums. He gave me a huge amount of information in the last week that already feels like it's making a difference in the way I feel and perform.

Re: George's Recipe Corner

George - hope this isn't a stupid question but. Flaxseed oil - you can't cook with it as it destroys whatever we're using it for. So all this cooking you do with flaxseed (and I put it in my bread too) is that OK?

Re: George's Recipe Corner

aha! Fiber = my friend!
so I'm off to get a cheap coffee grinder (to grind whole seeds, I think this is the best approach), flax seeds, eggs, buckwheat, blueberries, and a skillet. saweet.


so that recipe is... perfect then. Would I just take off 2 fat blocks from later in the day?

Flaxseed oil is best taken cold, keep it in the fridge. It is a more pure form of the omega-3 portion. Flaxseeds should only be ground just before use and then used right away.

The internal temperature of a baking oven doesn't oxidize the omega-3s (which is what destroys most fats, interaction with oxygen). Yes, it is quite OK, because even if it does destroy a little, you are still getting a ton of ALA, and you are also getting a ton of fiber.

I know the argument is often had that you don't absorb much O-3s from flax. I accept that (ends up about 1-7% of the ALA is converted to EPA/DHA). I also accept that there is no better source of ALA on the planet, and flax doesn't just have O-3s but lignans and phytoestrogen and a slew of minerals when eaten as ground seeds, as well as a ton of fiber. That for me has made it an essential part of my diet. I eat 3-5 tbsp a day. I haven't had constipation EVER since adding it to my diet.

I do supplement with fish oil and do eat a lot of fish with high O-3 profiles. I get it from everywhere.
