Testimonies of the Day

From a Phone Client: “No more hot flashes! I have gone from having 2-3 per hour all day and night to NONE! OGM – this is life changing!  I am sleeping SO much better. Its not perfect yet but its so much better. Some nights are better than others.” Nancy

From a Webinar Participant: “Thank you, thank you, thank you!  My first suggestion was going to be to have these (classes) more often, but I saw this morning you have another one and I am already signed up!  Yeah!

Also, I know you are busy, but I wanted to tell you really quickly that you have been a miracle in my life. I will spare you the details, but after two weeks of following the meal and supplement plan you provided for me I am a new person!  In one day you diagnosed my issues that doctors couldn’t figure out over the last 20 years.  

Who knew my issues were hormone related?!  For the first time in years I finally feel balanced and happy.  I can never thank you enough.  I have been telling all of my family and friends about you.

The webinar last night gave me that little boost of encouragement to continue with your plan.  It was just what I needed. I have devoured all of your books (multiple times) and I am looking forward to your new one.  There is something about hearing you live though that really gives me that extra boost.

Thank you for being such a blessing (and answer to prayer) in my life! – Cami”

OXYGEN METABOLIC TESTING

Lately I have been seeing a lot of advertisements for metabolic testing. The price ranges from $80-$200 on average. This test determines your oxidation rate of calories. On a specific website, it states: “It determines if there is an increased or decreased metabolism, and if your body primarily uses fats or carbohydrates for energy. This information can be used to determine the amount of calories you need to eat each day to maintain or lose weight. The results may also indicate that you have a medical condition affecting your metabolism. Diabetes, under or over active thyroid, COPD, heart disease, mitochondrial disorders, and obesity are some common conditions that may alter your metabolism.” 

True, all of those disorders can change how you oxidize calories, BUT with a ketogenic diet and in some cases supplements (such as CoQ10 to increase mitochondria) you can burn FAT at a faster rate. The test outcomes also change daily depending on a variety of things going on in your body. If you ate or worked out within a few hours of taking the test, the measurement will be off. As I discussed this with someone at the gym, and how this number changes daily and with our menstrual cycle, she told me her story about Metabolic Testing:

“Before I met Maria, I used to work out all the time like crazy. I prided myself of being in great shape. I had an instructor at the gym talk me into doing the metabolic assessment to help me know where I’m at with my health fitness and what to incorporate from there. I took the test with outstanding results. She and I were shocked and overly pleased with how awesome my results were. But to my dismay, as I was chatting with Maria, and letting her know what I had done, she explained to me that the testing shows different results at different times of the month for women.

I had been menstruating at the time and therefore, my results were much different than they would have been a week later. I did end up taking the metabolic testing again later, and sure enough my results came out differently. The point I want to make is that I felt as though the testing didn’t do much for me. I already had knowledge of how and when to work out and I started questioning the results and whether or not they really were important. But also, I was beginning to see that the results would probably be different each time I did it, therefore, not accurate.

I’m seeing that MORE IMPORTANTLY, is my eating.  – B”

NOTE: If you want a cute yellow yolk center around the white. I added a little bit of my lemon curd filling (click HERE to find). Or use natural yellow food coloring (click HERE to find) to 1/4 of the filling and use in the very center of the white filling when making the eggs.

Cadbury Cream Eggs
 
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
 
Author:
Serves: 12
Ingredients
  • WHITE CHOCOLATE:
  • 2 oz cocoa butter
  • ⅓ cup Swerve confectioners
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ tsp almond extract
  • ⅛ tsp Celtic sea salt
  • MILK CHOCOLATE:
  • Add ¼ oz unsweetened baking chocolate
  • DARK CHOCOLATE:
  • Add ½ to 1 oz unsweetened baking chocolate (depending on how dark you like it)
  • FILLING:
  • ½ cup Swerve (or erythritol and 1 tsp stevia glycerite)
  • ¼ cup coconut milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 TBS butter or coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Place cocoa butter in a double boiler and heat on medium high until fully melted (or microwave safe bowl and heat on high for one minute, check and heat for 30 seconds until melted). Melting cocoa butter takes longer than traditional fats.
  2. Stir in natural sweetener.
  3. Stir in extracts and salt (and baking chocolate if making milk or dark chocolate).
  4. Place into truffle mold and cool in refrigerator until white chocolate is solid, about an hour. Or the speedy method; you can place the molds in a freezer till they are set up, which will only take a couple of minutes versus and hour.
  5. FILLING: Combine natural sweetener, coconut milk and 2 eggs in heavy medium saucepan and whisk to blend; add coconut oil or butter. Whisk constantly over medium heat until mixture thickens and coats back of spoon thickly (do not boil), about 12 minutes. Pour mixture through strainer into medium bowl. Stir in the extract. Place bowl in larger bowl filled with ice water and whisk occasionally until filling is cooled completely, about 15 minutes. Can be made 1 day ahead.
  6. TO MAKE TRUFFLE: Remove the mold from the fridge or freezer and fill with filling.
  7. Then top off the filling with a layer of the cocoa butter mix so that the filling is inside and surrounded by the "white chocolate". Place back into fridge/freezer to set.

    Maria, do you think this could be done with just using stevia glyceite? I recently found I have a strange reaction to erythrotol. Gives me head aches and body ache, I stopped using swerve and it all went away.

    • cemmerich March 23, 2014 at 9:20 pm / Reply

      That should work. :)

    Maria, do you think the NOW foods ALA is safe and effective? I trust and have used NOW foods brand supplements for 5 years now. Thoughts please.
    Thank you.

      It should be. :)

    I used to love those Cadbury Creme Eggs, would love to try a healthier version. Could I use Just Like Sugar for the sweetener? Also, is the coconut milk from a can? Thanks!

      Those subs should work. :)

    Maria, I received 3 of your books by mail about 2 weeks ago. Unfortunately the Kids Cookbook is already falling apart page by page. What can I do about this?

    • cemmerich March 24, 2014 at 1:28 pm / Reply

      Sorry about that. We had an issue with the binding on a couple books from the printer. If you got it from Amazon, contact them for a replacements. :)

  • Jennifer March 24, 2014 at 8:00 pm / Reply

    Is there a taste difference between Swerve and Erythritol? Or maybe a price difference or a difference in the way they “cook”? I was just hoping to find the most economical and taste “friendly” without all of the trial and error. Thanks!

    • cemmerich March 24, 2014 at 10:17 pm / Reply

      Swerve combines 2 sweeteners so it is a bit more balanced flavor than just erythritol. But erythritol is a good option too (especially if you mix with a little stevia glycerite). :)

  • Lisa March 25, 2014 at 12:11 am / Reply

    What kind of molds did you use and where can you find them?? Would love to try this : )

  • Marianne E March 25, 2014 at 1:51 am / Reply

    I’m definitely making these for Easter! I used to eat a lot of artificial sweeteners, but a month ago I quit cold turkey and now sweeten everything (my water and tea) with Stevia Glycerite. And now I actually PREFER the stevia. But I do eat/drink a lot of it, probably a TBSP or maybe 2 every day. Is this okay, Maria?

    • cemmerich March 25, 2014 at 1:06 pm / Reply

      Yes, Stevia glycerite is a great option.

  • sunshine March 25, 2014 at 2:10 am / Reply

    Is it canned coconut milk for the filling or not?

  • Chocolate Rose March 25, 2014 at 2:29 am / Reply

    I”d like to make these, but I’m confused. Sorry. Do you fill the mold with the white chocolate or just put a layer of the white chocolate in the mold and then fill with the filling? Does the unsweetened baking chocolate get added to the white chocolate mixture? Is it then just drizzled on the eggs, or does it cover the eggs, or??
    Thanks for sharing all of your great recipes!

    • cemmerich March 25, 2014 at 1:06 pm / Reply

      You add a layer of chocolate, then the filling and then cover with chocolate. ;)

    Maria today is the 7th day since I started trying to eat as close as possible to your way. I am reading your books an all the comments on the blog and the forum. Thank you for all you have done. While I am not feeling perfect I am better I just have had one thing to pop up a fever blister and that thing has literally made me sick. I guess Atkins Flu. This week I have made oppsy bread and popovers so good. This is off topic I just wanted to let you know that someone in south, south Mississippi is following you. You have done a great thing for people. I have lost 9lbs in 7days. Woo Hoo!!!

    Is the unsweetened baking chocolate added to the white chocolate mixture?

    Hey, Maria! Here’s a tip for Anne, about the cookbook. I took all of them to Office Depot and had them put a spiral binding on them. It worked great! Now they lay flat and everything! : ) And, they added a black plastic piece to the back and a clear one on the front. Love it!

    Looks good :-) you list 2 eggs in the ingredients but refer to 4 eggs in the filling instructions? Miss those cadbury creme eggs but for the life of me won’t even consider tasting one again :-)

    I just happened to see a post on Facebook about these cadbury creme eggs (one of my Fav candies)… so naturally I clicked on the link and it brought me here. I have browsed your blog/site and read the excerpt on Amazon from your Keto-Adapted book. I really want to change our life style! We have been trying to eat “healthy” as our budget (and small town with not a lot of organic options) allow… but we definitely aren’t doing it right. Here are my questions… my 3 yr old daughter is allergic to eggs and peanuts (severely). We are waiting for results on allergies to other nuts. I am not sure how to adjust when we have those restrictions? (My husband and I DO eat eggs… but we keep ALL nuts out of our home for safety reasons). We also have a 1 yr old and another on the way (just found out). Is it realistic for us to try to make these changes for our family? I truly want to do what’s best but not sure if/how to start!

    • cemmerich March 28, 2014 at 10:20 pm / Reply

      There are ways to adjust. You can google flax egg replacer which works for many baked items.

  • Christina March 28, 2014 at 4:20 pm / Reply

    These look delicious! I’m so glad I found your blog and bought keto-adapted! Thank you for all of your amazing recipes!

    Just curious- what are your thoughts on doing a Fat Fast? I have a friend’s wedding in a week and am (of course) trying to look my best. : ) But, having a past of eating too few calories for extended periods of time, the 1000 cals/day makes me a little hesitant.

    Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated. Have a great day!

    • cemmerich March 28, 2014 at 10:23 pm / Reply

      I eat 80% fat, 15% protein and 5% carbs all the time. It has wonderful short term and long term health benefits. :)

    The breakdown of your diet is a real help. I’m a true believer of a sugar/grain free lifestyle. It has helped me tremendously. Honestly, the candy eggs don’t eggsite me. I’d rather have savory eggs. Never thought I’d say
    that.

    Hi Maria, I tried to make the white chocolate bunnies 2 times and both times the melted chocolate curdled into oil and like a thicker curd. I used regular pure vanilla extract. What went wrong?

  • Nicole April 9, 2014 at 4:18 am / Reply

    Is the link for the cocoa butter the one you actually use when making this recipe? The reviews on Amazon say scary things like shards of glass being found in the product. I’m scared to order it!

    I’ve been looking for natural food dyes, but read a review on amazon (more than one actually) that said the india tree “blue” is useless and black, and that they can’t produce a green by mixing with the blue.

    have you had this problem? I can’t seem to find any alternative brands of natural food colorings ):

  • Emma April 20, 2014 at 3:01 pm / Reply

    Also, I have some “cake pop” molds like the ones in your store – how did you “fill” your eggs? Do you just put a thin layer of the chocolate coating into the mold first, then pour in a little filling? mine have two molds, one top, one bottom, so the only way I can think of to create a “center” would be to thinly coat each, put some filling on top, and stick them together…? It doesn’t make a lot of sense in my head

    I think it would be great (and fast and easy considering the steps!) to make a truffle video for you vimeo since candymaking is something a lot of people have never done :)

    Thank you Maria!

    • cemmerich April 21, 2014 at 12:59 pm / Reply

      Yes, fill it about 1/2 full, add filling and then cover with more chocolate. :)
