Sprayed avocado olive oil before baking


Our 2 item dinner
1. Kale Beet Salad with lots of pomegranate n nuts
2. Bacon Cheese Pinwheels
+
Pomelo fruit ....

Next time
- to make BIGGER n MORE bacon crumbs for more bite/flavour in filling
- to make foil cover top so that pinwheel tops don't get burned before puff pastry also cooked at bottom portions
- more chopped spring onion n cilantro as well as more sauted onion
- to make tighter rolls
- to add more cheese b4 serving





Hmmm might try using tortilla wrap as in some YouTube videos instead of puff pastry sheet then DON'T need to do any baking at all ??
Cooked Veg Tortilla Roll Pinwheels - mom should love the cooked veg !

Ana3 years ago
great recipe ))
btw, the L in tortilla is silent. its pronounced tor-ti-yah. 




Fusion Fried Avocado Egg Roll=Spring Roll

Another alternative - can try using rolled thinned out white bread slices but that will also need baking esp if doing bread cups in muffin tray or cases instead of slicing bread rolls into pinwheels

Came across this pic of originally Baked Egg in Avocado which became a Crustless Quiche instead after the egg spilled out of the avocado boats ...

Another Quiche filled with various veg n bacon or pancetta etc ..
This was done over skillet pan stovetop n not baked in the oven


Very LCHF meal with eggy quiche green salad with avocado n that looks like soy pork belly ... my healthy lemon etc infused water too

TS on LCHF how long and what is your current weight stats? Support TS
I decided to do some online reading after the Polyclinic Doc wanted to put me on a mild statin during a routine/regular chronic disease management appointment in 3rd Quarter 2016 (discovered I have the usual hbp n diabetes from a 2012 comprehensive Health Screening) - this particular doc was also different from the rest in his Show & Tell tirade of the foods we should n shouldn't be eating etc ...
I objected to taking statins as hv read of worse resulting side effects so hv to search for alternative solution - decided LCHF makes the most sense as simply going back to the roots of ancient healthy eating before processed foods esp sugars HFCS took reign together with a generation suffering the great Cholesterol Myth - Saturated Fats n Eggs are NOT evil !

So I only went into stricter LCHF (meaning lesser Cheat Meals) for just 3 weeks before my next Fasting Blood Test in Sep 2016 - had quite amazing results - at 6.2% HBaC (my lowest ever !) - attending doc agreed to take me off the statin too (which I didn't bother to take anyway) as lipid profile back to permitted range (with good TG/HDL ratio of Below 2 ~ this I learnt later from the Eat Fats to Lose Fat thread here)

During those 3 weeks, I faithfully took my 2 Tbsp CCO on waking up with Apple Cider Vinegar..Even tried a few healthy green smoothies (too troublesome n blender back into cold storage) etc ...

Even tho had many Cheat Meals/Days - managed to lose almost 5kg altho weight loss was not my aim but a good Fasting Blood Test count

Guess it helps that unknowingly I have been doing Intermittent Fasting IF as advocated by Dr Jason Fung since 2015 or so (skipping breakfasts as jobless since 2nd PME Retrenchment etc n sleeping/waking up later)

Many hv told me that I hv lost weight compared to a year back etc
I found that IF lets me lose weight very gradually without exercising etc too

Now my LCHF is even more relaxed with even more taboos e.g. My recent crazy Xmas Bakes with LOTS of carbs - flour n sugars !
I do not want to make myself all stressed up with my own version of Cheat LCHF hahaha

This is interesting but will it make for a viable business esp since LCHF ingredients other than eggs tend to be pricey

A friend did suggest that I perfect my Xmas Goodies to sell online - but how much profit can one make ...

But it would help if ppl are keen to buy off some of my LCHF food e.g. Slices of the Country Pate or Pate de Campagne as I had a hard time finishing that by myself spread out over several meals ... Will get sick n tired even if it is very flavorful etc
More than 2 days preparation time with over 1.5 hours baking time n lots of fatty bacon pork belly chicken liver brandy spices/herbs



Are there ppl willing to pay a fair price for say a personal portion of salad (collection problems ?)
As mom doesn't go for raw cold salads, I am forced to finish up the salads esp if huge ones all by myself too
- would be great if there are buyers willing to share the excess here ...

Am a rather lazy cook - more for personal consumption than anything else
Think I will starve if am cooking as a biz here ..
see how

Saw a no bake blueberry cheesecake on the fieat fb
Here is my own very 1st attempt on that when requested to do a dessert for sharing last Nov - 1st time handling gelatin n jello too - amateurish ?


Squeezed in fridge ...see tub of sundried tomato n also of Greek Yoghurt ?

I followed this youtube video

Kiasu me had additional desserts like this rather yummy Panna Cotta (Cooked Cream) etc ...around that time I really had quite a few Berry Sauces - cranberry with clove n orange etc, raspberry-blueberry ... to serve with the NY cheesecakes n Panna Cotta

This time round I managed to get the doc to let 6 months go before my next Fasting Glucose Blood Test instead of the usual 4 months ..
Naughty me will only buck up with stricter LCHF in the month or 2 before the Blood Test
(Previously will get mom to boil Small Bitter Gourd soup few times to get good Blood Glucose readings hahaha)
but now with LCHF Consciousness (even with cheating) feel I can control n will not go overboard with the Sugar Carbs !

Mostly just forego the brown rice carbs n simply eat the dishes cooked by mom - unless mom cooks things like Vinegar Trotters or Curries which call for rice/bread accompaniment - now that Xmas is over, shouldn't be doing much cookie/cake baking with sugary stuff - consciously trying to cut down sugar consumption as much as feasible ..

Find that my Intermittent LCHF or Cheat LCHF combined with mom's dishes working fine too - prefer the HF to come from fatty meat or avocado etc (couldn't get mom to allow for pork lard as she says cleaning that is a pain) - can adjust by doing green salads or Bacon Egg Big English Breakfast meals with butter or Quiches when I am inclined to do so
But must make more effort with daily Apple Cider Vinegar n such ..

Example - for lunch today
Mom made simple soupy mien sien with Chinese lettuce

Then later for tea besides her mangzangko from the market, still got my 1/2 roll Bacon Mozza Cheese pinwheels to be sliced up n baked from yesterday ;-))

Inserted before 3pm :

Here's the sliced balance Pinwheels being thawed < so pretty the red cranberry n strawberry flecks of colour
With leftover frozen store bought samosas from freezer long long ago ....

My LCHF Mantra - don't stress ..

For me is chicken breast and steak. Simple and easy. 101 ways to cook it lol. Just change the side dishes. Only organic fat though. Never trust farmed animal fat. In the long run it matters.

We hate chicken breast meat as not tender n smooth - I always go for chicken thigh drumstick wings in chicken rice (1 chicken rice portion shared between 2 of us but 2-3 person chicken portion). Eat the skin too ! Add our own extra cucumber when indulging in occasional Chicken Rice treats from Maxwell when I go for body massage at nearby spa there ... mom gets OFF from cooking too

Bo lui for pricey steak now
(The aged Irish Angus at Ramsay's BSK is really shiok tho)

My LC moderate protein dinner
Finally used up the corned beef with lots of onion n carrot
Pomfret fish + achar !

Sun night - CNY dinner at friend's place
Yolo ....

Simple survey :
1. Anyone keen on buying a half portion of the above Corned Beef with carrot n onion ?
2. If YES, would you be willing to pay $9 for it together with 2-3 French Loaf bread slices (toasted) n pick up from my place void deck or nearby MacD ?
3. Just to test out the fieat concept here
Maybe could add on 1 or 2 other items to the Corned Beef too - say a Cheese Cake dessert at $7-9 (or at $4 if in huge muffin individual size)[How to price Baked n No-Bake Cheese Cakes - cream cheese so pricey too]
or 2 of the Bacon Cheese Pinwheels for $3.80 (5 for $7.50) - might use tortilla wraps instead of puff pastry too here ?

Do help out with the above simple survey - for fieat viability ...

Hmmm...May be possible for me to "stock up" some Panna Cottas or Cheese Cakes in fridge or freeze some Pinwheel Rolls for On-Demand orders to accompany other Main Items ...

Anyone willing to pay $12-15 for that Alaskan Avocado Roll + might switch out the crab stick to maybe a mix of crispy bacon-cranberry-cheese/mayo (similar to yummy Pinwheel filling) or juicy seared Hokkaido scallops but at $18-25 for pricier ingredients or fried soft shell crab or even simple fried/boiled egg +tart cranberry/salsa etc...
Hahaha aka bile sai roll .
