It’s all about the right arrangement..

20130303_125758

Hey πŸ™‚

I just wanted to say, that it’s all about the right arrangement, no matter what is your meal. The meal in the picture was actually for my fiancΓ© and therefore not low in protein. But just saying, it’s the same for our meals. I needed to go shopping, so I had only a poor choice at home… so I made mash with vegetables and salad.

But it actually looks delicious, doesn’t it?

Tomatoe-Cress bread… YUMMY

20130413_082140

Hey,

do you know this? You’re always looking for new recipes, trying out new things and everything, but sometimes it’s the simple things which satisfy the most?

I re-discovered tomatoe-cress bread with (homemade) butter. WOW. So delicious. A little salt on top. I wouldn’t swap this for a pasta meal πŸ˜€

What is your favourite thing on bread?

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 πŸ™‚

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.

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 πŸ™‚ It’s great.

Low Protein Sushi… YUMMY!

Hi there,

20121110_151821I went to a PKU meeting recently and we were divided in several groups to try out recipes. It was organized by the German company ComidaMed, wow, they had such good recipes. We prepared and had a lunch together. It was so delicious. Afterwards we also got a little recipe brochure to take home.My absolute favourite recipe is a low protein sushi recipe. WOW. I love sushi and had it in Chinese restaurants before, but I knew it was not very suitable for diet – but these ones are made with low protein rice πŸ™‚ YUMMY!

Here’s a picture of my first try. Ok I must admit it does not look professional at all. But it tastes great, that should be enough πŸ˜‰
