 Testimony of the Day

“I started to follow Maria last March 2013, my before picture that in Portuguese says “Antes” it looks like I was pregnant but I wasn’t, my baby had almost 1 year old at that time, I was a type 2 diabetic, and I`m not anymore, I have hypothyroidism, and I was always anxious, nervous, tired. I used to have migraines and trouble to sleep, not anymore! I have 3 kids under 5, and now I have the energy that I need to take care of them and play with them, I just love to be on my own skin now, my “Hoje” pic shows how I look today with 50lb down, I fell like my real me again, life is great! thanks Maria for everything, I can’t thank you enough!” – Cynthia

Happy Dr. Seuss Day! Green Eggs and Ham: Avocado Hollandaise

Before my job as a nutritionist, I worked at a fun place called Camp St. Croix. We would perform The Lorax to school groups every week. Dr. Seuss Day will always have a special place in my heart.

    I’d love to win the fondu pot because my family loves to make fondue for special occasions like Valentines day or Christmas. It’s become one of our traditions. 🙂
    I’ve bought one of Maria’s books and I’ve started accumulating the things I will need to make her recipes. I’m excited to try several of them and am having a hard time deciding which one to try first!

  • jean says:

    Milk Chocolate Ganache Cake is incredible!

  • Kate S says:

    I would love to win! My whole family loves your chili recipe!

  • Wendy says:

    Lava cake, pumpkin bread, lasagna, too many to figure out which is the favorite!

  • Vicki Kron says:

    Maria, I love all of your recipes, but one of my favorites is “”The Best Low Carb Bread”. I also like “Dip and Sticks”, and that’s just two of many!

  • LMuse says:

    My family likes many of your recipes, but I think your chili is my fave.

  • Bonnie says:

    I made the Amazing Bread….it had an interesting color – purple – was that due to the psyllium husk?, but it was AWESOME!

  • claire says:

    I’d like to win, and my favorite recipe right now is your keto crepes with syrup. I am addicted!!!

  • Jo says:

    another wonderful idea…..I am trying to acquaint myself with foods I have never tried and there is an avocado on the counter that I had not figured out what to do with 🙂 looks like you have answered my dilema !! Thanks Maria

  • Tasha says:

    I would love to win. I love the key lime twinkies and the peanut chicken from the kids cookbook.

  • Vicki says:

    Your chili is our family’s favorite.

  • Regan says:

    Our favorite meal that we love is your eggs benedict..last week we had it twice and it’s back on the menu for next week!!!

  • Cheryl says:

    Is the recipe for the protein buns in the above recipe available? I did a search of your site and didn’t find any reference to the protein buns recipe.

  • Barbara Linder says:

    I would LOVE to win! Your ice cream recipe is my hands-down favorite–I always have some in the freezer since I have a really easy-to-use ice cream maker. Thanks for keeping me on track!

  • sophie says:

    your bread!!!!!!!!!

  • Jean B. says:

    I am wondering whether the egg yolks get cooked when the ratios of cool/cold ingredients to very hot ones is vastly different from that in normal Hollandaise sauce recipes? (For that matter, I wonder whether they get cooked or adequately heated using the normal method.) I am speaking of the safety of the egg yolks….

    Thanks for any illumination on this issue, and keep up the good work!

    • cemmerich says:

      Yes, if you are concerned about the quality of your eggs, you can heat it gently until it is 150 degrees F.

      • Jean B. says:

        Thanks, Maria. I have been hearing about the safety issue concerning raw or undercooked eggs for many years, so I figured folks should be aware of this and obviously proceed at their own risk. I have never taken special measures because of that, other than getting fresh eggs (certified organic and free range, etc.) when I am making something that results in uncooked or undercooked eggs.

  • Dee says:

    I would love to win this. I think that my new favorite recipe will be the Avocado Hollaindaise because it sounds very healthy & extremely tasty!

  • gina says:

    I would like to win…we love any kind of healthified dessert.

  • Olya says:

    Would love to win:). Today I made your meatballs, brussel sprouts, eggplant breadsticks and peanut butter cookies: amazingly delicious!

  • jennifer weinzirl says:

    Id love to win and everyone in my house loves healthified pesto cabbage

  • Sue says:

    I’d love to win. We love the Coconut flour cake donuts.

  • Nathasha says:

    I would love to win the fondue pot! I was just introduced to your website today by a friend who has bought all of your books and follows your forum. I am excited about the recipes! I haven’t made any of them yet….but I will be making the Green Eggs and Ham: Avocado Hollaindaise tomorrow.

  • Wenchypoo says:

    This sauce is darn near what I make for vanilla pudding–just take out the lime juice, salt, and spices, and substitute vanilla and sweetener (then refrigerate until dinnertime). Sure, the pudding’s green, but who cares? The taste and texture are TO DIE FOR!!

    • Wenchypoo says:

      I don’t bother with heating the MCT oil, and I use 1 envelope of coconut cream powder (+ 1/2 c. water)–just dump everything into the blender (powdered coconut cream, MCT oil, egg yolks, avocado, vanilla, and sweetener–we use liquid stevia), anmd whirl for about a minute or two (until thick, and all ingredients blended thoroughly. Pour into bowls, then refrigerate until dinnertime.

    • cemmerich says:

      Sounds great! 🙂

  • Matt says:

    We really like the perfect pancakes and recently I started adding unsweetened cocoa powder to them in a portion equal to the sweetener. My kids LOVE them! My nine year old went from eating two of them for breakfast to four. This is a boy who, due to ADHD meds, hadn’t gained a pound in two years and generally doesn’t have much of an appetite. He’s off the meds and eating GREAT!

  • Candace says:

    My family loves your hollandaise most! It makes everything better. Now with Avocado? Yeah!

  • Ruth says:

    I just found Maria about 2 weeks ago and am slowly reading her books and gathering up supplies for my change to eating ME. My question for you is that I have a friend on FB that was diagnose with Fibromyalgia today and basically she was told to learn to live with it and do some sort of Fibro cocktail. I would like to gift her with one of Maria’s books, which would be the best for her to read. I thought either the one on the Metabolism or the one on keto adapted. Help me please so she can make a choice that will be good for her.

    • cemmerich says:

      Definitely my Keto-Adapted book. Also, send her my posts and testimonials on fibro (search blog). 🙂

  • Amber says:

    I just made your goldfish crackers yesterday & they are dangerously good. Tastes better than cheezits!

  • Brandi says:

    Would love to win the fondue pot! My family loves the Dutch Baby Pancake. YUM!!

  • Eric says:

    I’m not on facebook, and don’t want to be, so I guess I can’t enter to win. Bummer.

  • Sheridan says:

    I would be happy to win. My new favorite Maria recipe is the keto fudge! yummy!

  • Karen says:

    I’m on my second day without diet coke (I’m embarrassed to hare how many cans I used to drink up until yesterday, but I quit cold turkey!) I got a soda streamer and enjoy the water, even without adding the stevia drops I also bought. You mentioned in Keto Adapted, Maria, that one shouldn’t drink with meals. How long before or after is it okay to consume carbonated water?

    Thanks for all your advice. I never thought I would be able to kick the diet soda habit, but I know I will!

  • Darla says:

    I would love to win!!! I really can’t say which is my favorite ‘healthified’ recipe because I have soo many. I guess it depends on what I have a taste for that day. Sometimes its a sweets recipe and sometimes its bread.

  • Christina says:

    I would love to win! We love eggplant sticks and pretty much anything eggplant at our house.

  • Jana says:

    I am Gluten free & have been for a few years now what kind of muffins did you use for the eggs benedict?

  • Heather Edewaard says:

    Hi Maria! I would love to win! I love your ice cream recipes and the angel food cake recipe. I usually do both on the same day so that I am not wasting precious farm-fresh eggs. Thanks for all you do.

  • Janet says:

    I would like to win. My favorite recipe is the shamrock shake and cinnamon rolls.

  • Michelle says:

    My family really enjoyed your slow cooker Moroccan beef. We had it on miracle rice and it was delicious. Even my picky eater enjoyed it 🙂 Thanks so much for all your hard work making these delicious recipes Maria!!

  • Andrea says:

    I just found your site! Im excited! Im always looking to learn more about nutrition and wholesome foods. Im thinking I want to make your cinnamon bread for starters! But Im just getting started here! I’d love to win!

  • Christen says:

    I would love to win!

  • Oh wow! This sounds and looks amazing! Eggs and hollandaise is one of my favourite things but I would never think to put this together! I’m very excited to try this! Thanks for sharing!

  • shannon brown says:

    I would love to win that fondue pot!!! I have wonderful memories of New Years Eve with my parents and another couple getting together for Fondue night!!! We would do little meatballs, and steak, and a cheese one… Oh my!! I love so many of your recipes, but anything with chocolate is my favorite!!!

  • Veronica says:

    Does the hollondaise last in the fridge or do I have to eat it right away? If so how long?

  • Cheryl says:

    I love your ice cream recipe!
