Low Protein Puff Pastry

Hey my dear readers,

I cannot point out often enough that you really need to watch out for new foods – wow I just ordered at Glutex Austria recently and couldn’t believe that they have low protein puff pastry in their range of products. WOW. I always wanted to have something like that.

One plate has only 7 mg of phe – but very high in calories – 454 kcal per plate. You can see in the photo, one pizza bag is made of one plate. The thing I have to whinge about is the calorie amount. :o) You should rather only have one at a time together with a salad or something 🙂

It really opens a lot of possibilities, you could make sweet dessert with it as well. You fill it and bake it for app. half an hour and then it’s ready.

This is before I pushed the tray into the oven:

And this is what it looked like after baking:

As you can see from the last picture, the consistency really is comparable to real puff pastry. It’s very tasty. I like it. If you live in Europe, you might also have a look at the page and you might want to order one or another thing (I ordered several things and will post about it shortly… they also have great other things. very unique on the market as far as I know).

Have a great day.

Testing Kit for Formula provided by Vitaflo

Hey 🙂

few days ago I received a testing kit of Vitaflo. I wanted to try the PKU gel, I know it’s for kids but I only would want to take it from time to time, to have a bit variety in formula. So I sent a request and a very friendly person at Vitaflo sent me this – AMAZING 🙂 Not only the PKU gel for testing, also the PKU Express powder in different flavours, shakers, different juices to mix with the powder or gel, one pack of their zero protein milk and also a cute plush toy and a cute bag made of Vitaflo packaging as far as I can see 🙂  A BIG THANK YOU to Vitaflo!!!!

This reached far beyond my expectations and I’m positively surprised. I will try every variation and will let you know what I think in a posting within the next few weeks.

Have you already tried formula by Vitaflo? What is your opinion?

great idea from Nicole’s blog!!! Worth a try!

PKU Parlor

Earlier this week, I ventured out for my first restaurant meal since returning to the PKU low-protein diet. I was meeting my mother for lunch and we selected Olive Garden because we knew the unlimited salad (minus croutons and cheese) would be very PKU friendly. I also had the idea to bring some of my Aproten low-protein noodles with me. I had a batch already cooked and sitting in a Tupperware container in my refrigerator so all I had to do was re-heat them and find a way to transport the noodles while still keeping them warm. I immediately thought about a casserole dish/thermal carrying tote combo that I have, but I didn’t like the idea of walking through the restaurant carrying a large dish.

What did I do next? Well, this may sound a little silly, but I transferred my noodles into a Tervis tumbler. If you aren’t familiar…

Do you take supplements?

Hey my dear PKUs 🙂

how are you guys? Everything ok? How was your week so far?

I’m wondering whether you take supplements to your daily diet? I’m taking fibres from time to time (see picture), I use to mix it with juice, also trying to bake bread with it.

Another thing I take daily is omega 3 fat capsules. There is also a formula from Vitaflo which has omega 3 fat acids included but I think it’s the cooler and I cannot drink those “ready to drink” formulas. I cannot stand the taste 😀

Have you heard of anything else which is recommended to take along to guarantee a good health condition?

What kind of supplements do you take?

Lemon-Pepper-Seasoning Mix

Hey everyone,

I reported about this seasoning mix in my last posting. I found it at the Christmas market. It’s delicious, I use it to prepare spreading and for baking. I will watch out for spices from now on – it’s really great for making new variants – spreadings, sauces and for bakery 🙂 It’s great.

Do you use seasoning mixes? What do you use it for? What’s your favourite?

Low protein “steak”, bread with pepper-citron spread and savoy cabbage

 

Hey 🙂

I recently tried out savoy cabbage. But when I looked it up in my phe amount overview, I realized that it has a lot phe in it. 😦 120mg / 100g is a lot if you’re only allowed to have 350 / day. It was dinner and I hadn’t much phe left, so I decided to have 100g of savoy cabbage, cooked it in a vegetable soup, added a little cream to it. I prepared a Promin burger, and toasted a slice of bread, I made the spreading of crème fraîche mixed with a seasoning mixture (more about this in the next posting!) which tastes of pepper-citron. WOW. That was more a compromise but tasted so good.
