almond cracker

Thanks to Elizabeth at Caveman Food for inspiration to make this yummy P3 cracker. I will try it again soon, maybe next batch with stevia and cinnamon.

Ingredients are:

1 cup ground almonds

1 egg white

sea salt

You can grind your own almond meal in a food processor or blender (coffee grinder, if not needing a lot). When grinding your own, in a food processor, watch it carefully so it doesnt turn into almond butter. It’s best to freeze the almonds first (toasted or untoasted) then process them straight from the freezer a few at a time. If pressed for time just use store bought, it will be more expensive but more time economical. 

Ground Almonds can go rancid very quickly, so store in the freezer in a sealed container. Usually the rule is, the higher the fat content in a nut, the colder you keep it. 

Flax is natures perfect food and it’s perfect for P3

Flax has three powerful health benefits: the EFA’s your body needs for a healthy heart, a high amount of body-cleansing fiber, and the all-important lignans.

  • Flaxseeds are a great source of so many of the enzymes and nutrients your body needs, including protein, vitamins, phytonutrients, lignans, and fiber.
  • By eating flax, you will help to promote normal cholesterol levels, your digestion should improve, and you should generally feel better.
  • Flaxseeds are 35% oil and 55% of that oil includes the crucial omega fatty acids. Remember, both omega-3 and omega-6 are essential oils that should be included in your diet to promote good heart health.
  • The lignans found in flax are also low-glycemic carbohydrates. Therefore, they slow the absorption of sugar in the intestinal tract, so flax helps to promote normal blood sugar levels as well.

Flax seed contains approximately twice the amount of omega-3 as found in fish oils. Just 1/4 of a cup of flax contains 9,000 mg of omega-3.   Flax seed helps to flush your system of all the built up waste your body has accumulated. Remember to chew these good and drink plenty of liquids.

My husband and I live on these. Check out the videos below:

 

For Phase 3 of Dr Simeon’s HCG protocol, these crackers are great, because they are Gluten Free, Nut Free, Dairy Free, Flour free, Starch free, Parve and very versatile. The perfect companion for any spread, dip, soup, or salad!

Importance of hydration

The body dissolves and reabsorbs the empty fat cell and blood supply to the cell. The cell not only shrinks to be later reused, it completely goes back into the body and becomes a waste product. That why this diet is awesome for reshaping the body too.

To do this it requires fluid and time. This explains stalls and minor gains during your HCG journey. In the end, you no longer have the empty fat cells in your body to fill up once you start eating normally. Kind of exciting when you look at it from that angle. Drink up!

Check your temperature and use it to monitor your body’s metabolism

You can tell if your metabolism is working just fine or slowing down by measuring your temperature. You can do this every morning, just at the time of the weighing. Check your temperature to find out what your ideal caloric intake should be to keep your body running smoothly. I know when on maintenance, i mean on P3 & P4, I hit 1500 to 1800, my body temperature drops and I even feel cold. I even need sweater or a hot cup of tea at some point. Cayenne pepper supplementation helps. Take it in capsules, it will warm you up on the inside. If you are very brave, just do a shot of 1/10 teaspoon and chase it down with hot lemon water, 2x a day.
