Chef Gui made a mistake. He started testing that recipe with molasses, but he didn't like the taste. So Chef Gui replace it with Truvia. Just make the recipe without the molasses.
You are welcome to follow a gluten-free diet if such is your preference or your obligation. But, if you're trying to lose weight in the meantime, than you should avoid gluten-free pasta altogether and focus on other foods. Gluten-free pasta is, well, glut...
My wife and I buy organic as often as possible. If the fruits or vegetables are not organic, we try to offset the impact of pesticides by washing them thoroughly. I hope this helps.
Try to choose pasta that is Italian and uses "durum wheat" flour. It's usually listed in the ingredient list. My favorite (and easily accessible) brands are DeCecco and Barilla. But there are many others. For "whole grain" pasta, and to make sure you ge...
If you do not like to cook with wine, then don't. In all of my recipes, you can replace with stock or water. I hope this helps.
VERY IMPORTANT: While I sometimes indulge in fresh pasta, fresh pasta unfortunately is NOT EMBM compatible. It won't help your weight loss efforts. Here is why: I wrote a few articles on cooking pasta for weight loss (3 of them here: http://www.earlytor...
There is no real replacement for onions and garlic (they are so unique in taste). However, here is a Mediterranean trick: use anchovies. Anchovies can be cooked in a bit of extra-virgin olive oil to give a lot of taste to a dish. They melt (yes!) so you w...
Thanks for trying the recipe and I'm sorry you're having trouble with it. That pizza "dough" recipe is not actually meant to be a dough. It's meant to be more like a batter. I know I'm mentioning it in the recipe, but I should have made it clearer. As ...
The best way to store vegetables is to either leave them as is in the bottom part of your refrigerator, or as soon as you prepare them (peeled, diced, sliced, whatever...) it's best to put them in zip-lock bags and press the air out.
Sure, too much of a good thing is a bad thing. But I assume you're not planning on stuffing your face with dozens of avocados each and every day. I wouldn't worry too much about eating too many avocados. It's full of fiber and really healthy. Just eat a f...
It is now posted on the members site. Look for VT004 - The Right Equipment. I hope this helps.

Eating rice is not the best if you're trying to lose weight. However, rice is not created equal, and there are ways to select and cook it that makes it acceptable for weight loss. Only choose BROWN "Basmati", "Jasmine", "Texmati" or "Jasmati" rice. It's v...
Yes, it is a waste. To tell you the truth, getting rid of egg yolks to lose weight is a detail AND also controversial still (scientific community has not really reached a consensus). So basically, you don't have to. I tried to limit the amount of saturate...
I think rutabagas have wax on them, but not turnips. I may be wrong. I do peel rutabagas (not a soft-skin vegetable) but not turnips. I hope this helps.
I won't argue with you. You do have a point. Full fat grass fed dairy is great-tasting and healthy. The truth is the scientific community has not quite reached a consensus on whether or not people who try to lose weight should limit saturated fat from dai...
It is possible. Stevia drops however are much sweeter than Truvia, and do not provide the bulk. So that will upset the recipe. As a general rule, substituting sweeteners 1-for-1 usually does NOT work well, unless it has been previously tested. And even ...
The recipes are not vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free or paleo. There are some recipes that meet these requirements, but the book and diet are not designed to accommodate these dietary requirements. Here is a great gluten and dairy free cookb...
Truvia is NOT the same as Stevia. Both sweeteners come from the same plant, but their sweetness, taste, and aftertaste is much different. Stevia is much, much sweeter than Truvia.
I know, it's a long time, right? That's how I make my chili, though. You see, cooking it for so long at such a low temperature ensures that the pork shoulder melts in your mouth. Make sure you use a slow-cooker, though. Let me know how it turns out.
Regarding pesticide, of course it is a concern. I recommend buying organic for many reasons. If you buy regular fruits and vegetables, yes, please wash them thoroughly.
Not to worry, this is normal. Olive Oil is a mono-unsaturated fat and will solidify at the temperature of your refrigerator. You can either leave your dressing outside the fridge, or put it in the fridge and take it out a few minutes prior to using it and...
Thank you for pointing out a misprint. Yes, coconut flour should be added and we have modified the recipe accordingly. You can find it here: http://www.earlytorise.com/my-1-winter-recipe-recipes/ [http://www.earlytorise.com/my-1-winter-recipe-recipes/] ...
All recipes have been successfully tested. Regarding the parsley, maybe I should have made the recipe clearer. You need ½ cup of fresh Italian parsley. THEN remove the leaves and mince them. That should give you a much lower amount of parsley. I hope th...
To some extent, we all need customized substitutions, whether it is for religious reasons, medical reasons, or just personal taste. The best advice I can give you is (and I'm not trying to sell you anything!) is to sign up for my cooking classes. There ...
Actifry is a low-fat appliance that reproduces the taste and appearance of fried foods. It works by cooking foods while only using 1 spoonful of oil. The truth is, I can't judge because I have not tried it. Having said that, fat doesn't necessarily make p...
I'll assume you mean a "high-fiber" diet; not a "low-fiber". As a general rule, you want to increase the amount of fiber in your diet. I wouldn't say that Eat More Burn More is a high-fiber diet. Rather, I advocate focusing on good food with little rest...
Yes, the "French paradox" is embedded in my recipes, the stories I tell about my cooking experiences, and the emails I send daily. The "French paradox" is a term coined in a study from the 80s. Scientists couldn't really figure out how the French (Specifi...
In Chef Gui's cookbook, every time he refer to "whole grain" flour, it is meant to be whole grain wheat flour (sometimes referred to as "whole wheat"). He calls it whole grain because in Canada (where the cookbook is also sold), "whole wheat" doesn't nece...
Truth be told Indian and Thai curries have more in common than they have differences. Curries are cooked worldwide. In India and Pakistan of course, but also all over SouthEast Asia, South Africa, and even some variations in the Caribbean. Mostly, Thai c...
Any pan that doesn't have a plastic handle. A skillet works great.
In my opinion, the best for whole-grain products, including flour is "Bob's Red Mill". http://www.bobsredmill.com [http://www.bobsredmill.com/]
Thanks for your feedback. That's why they call Craig "the Kitchen Clutz". He doesn't know his way around the kitchen! We appreciate you catching this and Chef Gui recommends swapping out canola oil and using 2/3 tbsp melted butter, preferably grass-fed. ...
