Pancakes is a very popular dish in Sweden. Mostly made of eggs, milk and flour, sprinkled with sugar on the top and strawberry jam. Some like it with ice-cream...well, that is a big no no for me, eating LCHF. 
But there is a way to enjoy that type of dish anyway.

2 eggs
1 teaspoon salt
3 dl cream
1 cup Philadelphia cheese
Sprinkle some stevia/ or any other GOOD sweetner
1 tbsp coconut flour
1 tbsp husk

Beat the eggs hard with salt and sweetening. Stir in cream and Philadelphia cheese and whisk until it is blended nicely.
Mix coconut flour and husk and whisk into the mixture.
Spoon down like small  pancakes in the pan - please use coconut oil because butter burns the  pancakes quickly and have not to high heat on. It will be eight small pancakes on this amount of pancake batter.

One part cream and and the same amount of Philadelphia cheese, whisked together. Season with a bit of vanilla powder and stevia or other good sweetner.  Mix in some kind of berry. I had blueberries and raspberries.

The taste was very good indeed! Oliver, my son ate up two of these and his spontaneous comment was:
 - It tastes like the pancakes!
Doh! : D

The best pizza so far

Now I have tried lots ofdifferent pizza bases with different results and taste, and now I have a winner!

I started from a Ciabatta recipe that I found online a while ago. It's probably the closest "bread" I can think of as a LCHF: er.
Today I tried to bake it as a pizza base with a little modification.
First and foremost, it would fill  my roasting pan so I did double everything.
8 eggs
200 grams Philadelphia cheese
200 grams of cottage cheese (fill the empty Philadelphia box and  you have the same amount)

200 gram melted butter

3 cups almond flour
1 cup coconut flour
4 tablespoons physillium husk (you can use 4 tablespoons of coconutflour instead if you can't find it in the stores)
3 teaspoons baking powder
2 tsp salt
2 tablespoons oregano (dried)

Take out two bowls and mix the wet ingredients well with a whisk. Mix together the dry ingredients in a separate bowl and then pour the mixture into the dry and mix with a wooden fork.
Pour it in a roasting pan, preferably with a baking paper. Do this as fast ad you can, the better it is possible to "spread out" the batter at the plate. If you wait the batter swells and it becomes more difficult to smudge because of the husk.

Bake the base for a maximum of 30 minutes and take it out.
Meanwhile, prepare what you want on your pizza.
Today we did a taco-inspired pizza and I made a spice mix that I was inspired by the last weekend when I made Indian cuisine.

I dry roasted 3 tsp of cumin seeds, and put them together with 4 small garlic cloves, some chiliflakes, about 2 tsp coriander seeds, a little chipolte pepper (smoked chilli), salt, oregano and some garlic powder in a mortar.  I mixed the spices with minced meat which I fried with butter.
I had a tomato sauce that I made before.
Grate the cheese, about 4 ounces - I had three pieces of cheese with different tastes. Likes to mix different cheeses.
Spread the tomato sauce on the pizza base, then add the cheese.
Then the minced meat.
Slice olives, fresh spring onions and tomatoes in the oven at 200 degrees until the cheese has melted.

Really good! If you like a thin pizza base so you can scrape off a bit of pizza batter and bake it as small buns or what you like. Do not be afraid to try!

The cholesterol campaign and its misleading dietary advices

This guy is from Denmark and I can not say that his lecture is "fun" to listen to but very important. He is a very respected and trusted person here in Sweden/Denmark and Norway.
