The Hypnotic Nutrition taste testers are back again sampling some very high fat, heavy whipping cream. Along with Carole and Mikayla, this time we also have guest taste tester Daniel Andras, Registered Dietitian and self-proclaimed “fat snob”. Did we all agree on our favorite and least favorite?
The heavy cream and heavy whipping cream we tasted:
Keto Chat Episode 14 is with Randy Webb, Licensed Professional Counselor in Arizona and Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Washington. Randy was my counseling internship supervisor when I was completing my graduate degree in 2012, and at that time, he was a vegetarian. When I went to visit Phoenix in March 2016, I was excited to talk to Randy about a couple of the therapies he’s passionate about. But then I discovered that he had a big surprise for me regarding his diet!
What we talk about:
Randy’s surprise development of metabolic syndrome, fatigue, sleep trouble, and kidney issues when he was eating, what he thought was, a health diet.
His journey from a low-fat, high carb, vegetarian diet to a lower carb, omnivorous diet
Who inspired Randy to look at his diet and give up oatmeal and consider eating sardines for breakfast
What health improvements he’s seen since changing his diet
Which dietary change had the biggest impact on his health markers
How Randy became interested in hypnotherapy
How trauma can lead to mindless eating, emotional eating, or stress eating and what can be done about it
How EMDR therapy empowers a person to build their own internal resources for health and well-being as opposed to other talk therapy that focuses on identifying and changing what is “wrong” with a person

Recently, my son started back to college (after working 2 jobs to support me after my devastating car accident. I love you, kid!). He ordered his sociology textbook through Amazon, however they mistakenly shipped us a Hamilton Beach Dual Breakfast Sandwich Maker. Score! I’d been eyeing these, wondering what kind of delicious keto meals I could create.
Since the whole premise of this appliance is to start with some kind of bread (oh, Oprah would be so happy!), like a bagel, English muffin, or croissant, my first step was to master a keto-friendly bread muffin to build my delicious sandwiches from.
After making these buns, you can continue on to make a breakfast or other sandwich in your sandwich maker (with meat, cheese, eggs, etc.) or you can brown the bottoms and use for a cold sandwich, or make several and keep them on hand for future sandwich needs. For example, make a grilled cheese sandwich.
6 tablespoons (42 grams) almond meal
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons butter, melted (or any other fat: coconut oil, lard, tallow, schmaltz, red palm oil, etc.)
Up to 1 tablespoon of water
Preheat sandwich maker according to manufacturer directions.
In a small bowl or mug, mix together the almond meal, baking powder, and salt. Stir in the egg and then the melted butter and mix thoroughly. Add water if needed, to make batter a pourable consistency.
Pour the batter into the top half of your preheated sandwich maker, dividing evenly between the two compartments. Cook for 4 – 5 minutes, until the top is set.
OPTIONAL: Only do this step if you are not going to use these to make a sandwich in your sandwich maker. To brown the bottom of your bun, slide out the divider on the sandwich maker so that each bun falls down to the bottom of the sandwich maker. Cook for 2 more minutes.
Remove buns from sandwich maker and place on a cooling rack until cooled. (Or eat right away, because they are that good!)
