Cinnamon & Amaranth Breakfast/Dessert

Hey guys, I tried amaranth for the first time last night & I must admit, it wasn't quite what I expected. I thought it would have the texture of quinoa, only with a different flavor, but it stayed moist and almost gooey. I had some leftover amaranth today, so I tried something out & this is what I came up with:

Quick Cinnamon & Amaranth
cooked amaranth
butter or oil that can go with sweet flavors (coconut is what I used)
stevia/chicolin mix
vegetable glycerine

Put some cooked amaranth into a frying pan and heat with butter or oil. Smooth it out over the bottom of pan, kind of in the shape of a pancake. Sprinkle on an ample amount of cinnamom, nutmeg, & stevia/chicolin. Once it's heated all the way through, drizzle some veggie glycerine over the top & serve. It stays gooey & makes a yummy breakfast. A pat of butter on top might be a nice touch too.

Hi Blondie wave1

I noticed that you're having lots of questions about specific ingredient amounts to the recipes on the Forum. I just thought I'd say that some of the recipes posted here are not formalized ... that is, alot of the forum members come up with a great idea and play around with different ingredients to find the taste they want. So some of the recipes look something like "add a little bit of this and a little bit of that." That's frustrating I know! But just use your judgment and follow the guidelines and season the dish to your taste.

We're always trying to come up with new and innovative ways to add variations to our candida diet. Sometimes the diet feels limited -- especially in the beginning Phases. So we do our best to get creative.

Have you looked at the Candida Diet list on the Whole Approach website? It might help answer some of your questions on what is allowed and recommended and what foods should be limited or avoided. It would probably be helpful for you to know what is recommended for the different Phases of the WA Protocol as not all of the recipes listed here are suitable for all stages of the program. Depending upon what Phase of the diet we're in, we just pick and choose the recipes that are allowable and the ingredients that we can tolerate.

Yes amaranth is a limit food. The diet list on this website lists exactly what the limit, ok, and avoid foods are. It would be helpful to print that out, so you can reference it when looking up recipes or for planning out your menu for the day.

As for cooking the amaranth...I can't remember the exact ratio of water to amaranth grain, but you would boil it and then simmer it just like any other grain. If I find the ratio, I'll let you know. In the meantime, you could try a google search to find out.
