Lemon Cranberry Scone – Gluten Free / Dairy Free / Sugar Free

I am not Gluten Free, Dairy Free or Sugar Free. But I noticed recently that I grew up eating lots of rice and a little bit wheat. I thought as if my body won’t break down wheat so well because I am Japanese? In my culture (Japanese), rice is one of major carbohydrates and some people still eat rice every single meal everyday even though our younger generation is exposed to many wheat products.

I remember growing up eating sweet or salty rice cracker, sweet or salty rice pancake, and sweet beans! Of course, I ate chocolate, cookies and cakes, but not as much as I eat now.

I think I can be innovative with western sweets recipe! West meets East or East meets West! I have been baking with Rice Flour a lot lately. And the final products came out pretty good so far. I like the texture of Rice Flour baked sweets. It is somehow very soft and fluffy inside and crunch outside! I love it!

My belief of Gluten Free baking is to avoid using Xanthan Gum. Some Gluten Free baking recipes require Xanthan Gum but I totally ignore it. I read recently that Xanthan Gum is usually made with corn and used as thickening agent. If I need thickening agent, I just add extra egg or something. I am a bit skeptical about product starts from “X” :)

Anyways, today I challenged myself baking SCONE. Gluten Free, Dairy Free, and Sugar Free Scone! I tweaked the amount of Agave Syrup and Milk. Just make sure your dough won’t get too soggy! This is very yummy ya’ll! Here we go!

Rice Flour Lemon Cranberry Scone – GF/DF/SF

3. To the Flour mixture bowl, put Agave Nectar and 6 teaspoon of Coconut Oil Solid and cut them in the Flour mixture till the mixture looks like peas.

4. Slowly pour a half of Milk / Coconut Milk to the Flour & Coconut Oil mixture. Use folk to mix all ingredients together. Do not over mix. Keep pouring the rest of Milk / Coconut Milk until the Flour & Coconut Oil mixture has enough moisture to form dough.

5. Put the dough on the work surface with some White Rice Flour, do not knead but pad it down to make about 18 cm scone disk. Cut the scone disk to 8 pieces.

6. Line 8 scones (mini scone) on the baking sheet.

Before the oven


7. Put the remaining Milk / Coconut Milk on top of each scone and sprinkle with Coconut Sugar. Just FYI, this step is TOTALLY Optional.

4HB Diet Week 3 / 4HB ダイエット 第3週目

This diet is getting easier but I had my birthday last week during 4HB Diet, which I decided not to have my birthday cake on my birthday and waited till the Binge Day (Saturday). Psychologically, not having a birthday cake on my birthday was harder than I thought. (I know this is pretty lame…)

さて、4HBダイエット、大分簡単になってきました!が、しかし、先週のダイエット週間に、私の誕生日があり、周りの皆は、「誕生日ぐらい、ダイエットしなくても~」と言われましたが、変な意思を貫き、「誕生日ケーキは、ご褒美の日の土曜日まで食べない!」と宣言。 これが、精神的に、結構きつかったです。 今まで、誕生日に、誕生日ケーキを食べたことない年って、なかったような気がする・・・

So the 3rd week of 4HB Diet, as I informed in my previous blog, we added more Fish Dinner to our weekly menu. According to Mr. Z and my analysis (only 2 weeks of data…), we found that Fish Dinner has helped us lose weight at least 1 – 1.5 pound. We had 3 Fish Dinners last week, I’d like to inform you how our 4HB went :) Here was our 3rd Week 4HB Diet Menu!

前回の4HBブログでもお伝えしたように、先週第3週目、魚のディナーを1回増やしました。 これは、2週間のダイエットのデータより分析した結果、どうも、魚ディナーを食べると、翌朝、体重が1パウンドから1.5パウンド減っている事に気づいたからです。 で、通常は、魚は週一ぐらいしか食べないのですが、先週はなんと、合計3回の魚ディナー。 体重減るかな~!! それでは、先週のメニューです。

The results of 3rd week was ok. But our prediction of Fish was right. Whenever we had Fish for dinner, next morning we lost 1 – 1.5 lb. All the sudden, we love fish :)

第3週目の結果は、「まーまー」。 でもね、私たちが分析した、「魚料理が痩せる秘訣!」というのが、どうも当たっているらしく、魚を夕食に食べた翌朝は、必ず、500g~700g 体重が減ってました。 突然、魚が大好きになった、私たち夫婦!

Well, Mr. Z lost about 3 lb and I lost 2 lb last week. Also we lost some inches!

For Mr. Z:
His bicep went down about 1 inch.
His thigh went down by 3 inches.
His waist went down by about 3 inches.
And his hip went down by 1 inch.
Total, he went down by 8 inches!

He is looking better and better :)

それでは、詳しい結果です。 Mr. Z、体重は3パウンド(キロにして、約1.5キロ)減ってました。 私は、2パウンド減(キロにすると1キロ)。 

Mr. Zの体のサイズは:
両二の腕が1インチ減(約2センチ減)
両太ももが3インチ減(約7.5センチ減)
なんとウエストが3インチ減(約8センチ減)
ヒップが1インチ減(約2センチ減)
トータル、8インチ減 (約19センチ減)でした。 

益々、男前になっていく、Mr. Zです。

Alright, for me…
My bicep went down by 1 inch.
My thigh went down by 2 inches
My waist went down by 2.5 inches
And finally my hip went down by 1 inch.
Total, I went down by 6 inches!

This result was certainly better than last week :) I am satisfied with the result!

はい、私の番。 体のサイズは:
両二の腕が1インチ減(約2センチ減)
両太ももが2インチ減(約4.5センチ減)
なんとウエストが2.5インチ減(約5.5センチ減)
ヒップが1インチ減(約2.5センチ減)
トータル、6インチ減 (約14センチ減)でした。

まーまー、満足の結果です。

This week is week 4 of 4HB diet. Well see how much more we can lose weight. Stay tuned!!

さて、今週は第4週目の4HBダイエット! さてさて、今週は、どれぐらい痩せることができるでしょうか! 乞うご期待!

4HB Diet Week 2 / 4HB ダイエット 第2週目

Week 2 of 4HB was not so good. Our weight stalled and our body size did not change much. We only lost 2 lb each. I wonder what we did wrong foodwise. The biggest food difference between week 1 and week 2 was “Creativity” in the menu. Like the Stuffed/Rolled Cabbage in Tomato sauce and Okonomiyaki. They don’t sound that creative but I guess during this diet, these were creative. Actually, our weight went up after these two meals. :(

第2週目の4HB ダイエットは、あまり進展なかったです。 体重の減り方も、上がったり下がったりで、結局、第1週目とは、かなり違いが出ました。結局、私もMr. Zも2 lb (1 Kgぐらいかな)しか体重減りませんでした。 体のサイズ(ウエスト等)も、ほとんど変化なし。:( 何でだろうと考えるな考える中、行き着いたところは、クリエーティブな食事。 第2週目は、ちょっとしたテストとして、豆を、豆の形で食べるのでなく、粉の形(お好み焼き等)で食べたり、お肉を野菜で包むロールキャベツなど、もうちょっと手を加えたメニューがありました。 が、しかし!! お好み焼きとロールキャベツの後は、体重が上がってしまったのです! ( ̄◇ ̄;)ガーン!! ということで、今週は第3週目は、またシンプルに、プロテイン (お肉・魚のグリルのソテーかグリル)、野菜 (ソテー、蒸し、かグリル)、豆 (豆は豆で)と言うメニューで行きたいと思います。

This is what we ate last week (Meal Plan Week 2), which did not work so well for the 4HB Diet. BTW, Mr. Z added Probiotic Drink 3 times last week. This drink uses Agave Nectar instead of Sugar and also FOS (Fructooligosaccharides).
4HBダイエットの効果が薄かった、先週第2週目のメニューは、こんな感じでした。 あ、そうそう、Mr. Zは、お通じのために、Probioticのドリンクを週3日追加しました。 これは、砂糖の変わりに、Agaveが使われていて、また、オリゴ糖も入ってます。

4HB Marinated Chicken with sauteed Veggies

So we analyzed what we ate and how it affected our weight changes last week. As I state earlier, creative meals like Okonomiyaki and Stuffed/Rolled Cabbage in Tomato sauce put us up about 1 lb. BUT!!! Grilled Salmon and Veggie meal and Grilled Sausage, Sauerkraut and sauteed Veggies meal help us lost weight by 1 lb to 1.5 lb. So I added two Grilled Fish meals and one Sausage with Sauerkraut meal to this week’s menu. Also, I think I am going to adjust the portion of our food this week.

先週、何を食べたときに、体重が増えて、減ったかを、少々分析してみました。 2週間の食事で、分析するのは早いかと思ったのですが、まー取りあえず、思ったからには行動を! クリエーティブな食事(そうでもないけどね)お好み焼きや、ロールキャベツを食べた後に、1 lb (500gぐらいかな)体重が増えているのがわかりました。 これは、私もMr. Zも同じ。 で、サーモンのグリルの料理の後と、グリルソーセージとサワークラウトの食事の日の後に、1-1.5 lb (500g – 1kg)体重が減っていたことが分かりました。 と言う単純な分析から、今週のメニューには、魚のグリルの料理を2日、そして、グリルソーセージとサワークラウトの料理を1日作ってみました。 後は、量。 食べる量も、少々減らしてみます!

Hope to drop a few pound this week. But we will see! Stay tuned :)
今週、2-3 lb(1-2kg)ぐらい、体重落とせたら良いな~っと思う今日この頃。 さて、どうなるでしょうか! 乞うご期待!

4HB Diet Week 1 Result & Binge Day! / 4 Hour Body ダイエット 1週目 結果 とご褒美の日!

Today is our binge day!!! Yeeeeeeess!!! I don’t know about Mr. Z but I am really really extremely extremely excited about today!! I could not stop thinking about a slice of dense creamy chocolate cake with whipped cream on top. I mean “Sugar Please!!”
今日は、1週間に一回の「ご褒美の日」、何を食べても良い日でーす! Mr. Zは分かりませんが、私は朝からもうウキウキ! ずっと、クリーミーで濃いチョコレートケーキとホイップクリームのことを考えていて、今日ついにそれが食べられるのです~!! マジ嬉しい・・・

Well, before the binge starts, we must weigh ourselves and measure bicep, thigh, waist and hip. I got up first! and weigh myself…. he he he… I lost total 3.4lb in 1 week without exercise! And next Mr. Z weigh himself…. OMG, he lost total 5lb in 1 week without exercise!! We are VERY pleased by this results!
さてさて、ご褒美の日が本格的に始まる前にしないといけないこと、体重の測定、そして、二の腕、太もも、ウエスト、そしてヒップの測定! まずは、私から、体重の測定・・・・ ゥフフフ なんと3.4lb(1.5kgぐらいかな、Kgにするとたいしたことないね・・・)1週間で減りました! そして、ザックは5lbも(2.5kgぐらいかな)も痩せちゃってます! 体重だけで、これだけ変化するって、予想外でとても満足!

Next, we measured our bicep, thigh, waist, and hip. My bicep was almost exactly the same. My thigh went down about 1.5 inches from right thigh, also 1.5 inches from left thigh. My waist went down by 1.5inch. And at last my hip was the same…. Total, I went down by about 4.5 inches!!
次ー! 二の腕、太もも、ウェストとヒップの測定です。 まずは、私から、二の腕は変化なし。 太ももは、両モモとも3センチずつ減ってました! ウエストも3センチ減ってました~! ヒップ、変化なし・・・ 体総合で11cm減ってました。 これって、ちょっとすごくない?

Next, Mr. Z, his bicep was almost the same. His thigh went down by about 2 inches from the right thigh and 1 inch from the left thigh. His waist went down by about 1.5 inches. And his hip was about the same. Total, he went down by about 3.5 inches!
さて、Mr. Zですが、二の腕変化なし。 太ももは、右太ももが4cm減、左太ももが1.5cm減、ウェストも3.5cm減! ヒップは変化ほぼなしです。 体総合で9cm減!

Yes, we will continue this diet at least 3 more weeks. We think we can do it. It is not that hard after all because we won’t get hungry. You may have some craving for sugar, starch, and fruits but you can eat them once a week. This results encouraged us to continue this diet A LOT!
はい、続けます。 このダイエット続けちゃいます! 少なくとも後3週間! 確かに、食事制限はありますが、とにかくこのダイエットでお腹がすくことがない! 時には、甘いものや、パン、ご飯、フルーツ食べたいなーって思うときもありますが、1週間に一度は食べられるし・・・ とにかく、この結果で、かなり戦闘心、燃えてます! 頑張るぞ~!!

So as I mentioned earlier, today is our binge day! You can eat whatever you want but 4HB said it recommends us to eat high protein food in the morning and before the 2nd meal, drink a glass of grapefruit juice. So we did eat a very small but high protein breakfast. 1 egg & pork & spinach scramble plus guacamole and salsa / person.
さて、上にも書きましたように、今日はご褒美の日! しかし、4HBはご褒美の日も、ハイプロテインの食事からはじめ、2食目の前にグレープフルーツジュースを飲むように進めているので、取りあえず、少なめに、1つの卵でスクランブルエッグを残りのポークとホウレン草で作って、ワカモレとサルサで食べてみました。

4HB Day 7 Binge Day High Protein Breakfast

Next, we decided to go to 24 Dinner to have Chicken & Waffle! So we went there to have lunch! We ordered a glass of grapefruit juice and Coffee. I ordered the 1/2 size of Chicken & Waffle just because I know their normal volume is huge. Mr. Z ordered a glass of beer “Ommegang Aphrodie” and Chef’s Waffle = Apple Cinnamon Waffle!
さて次々、ダウンタウンにある24 Dinerというお店に、ランチを食べに行くことを決めていたので、早速そちらに向かうことに! まず最初に、グレープフルーツジュースとコーヒーを注文。 そして私は、フライドチキンとワッフルのハーフサイズを! Mr. Zはシェフスペシャルワッフルで、普通サイズの林檎をキャラメルとシナモンでソテーされたものが乗っているワッフルを注文! Mr. Zは”Ommegang Aphrodie“と言うシャンパンのようなビールも注文。

Omegang Aphrodie


Chicken & Waffle 1/2 Size


Chef's Waffle

The lunch was served and smelled good and tasted good! We were so happy for this binge day. Our 1/2 way down to the meal, we both realized that we were already full…. :( “What!! We only had 1/2!! I mean my order is 1/2 size to begin with!! What is going on?” And we both started sweating… and it was weird sweat… I think the sugar was doing something to our body. So it was really really really really really disappointed and unfortunate but we only finished 1/2 of the meal and left the place.
オーダーしたランチが運ばれてきました~! イエーイ!! さてさて、お味はと言いますと、美味しいに決まってるじゃーん!! メープルシロップたっぷりのワッフルとフライドチキン! しかし、大変なことが起こってしまいました。 半分ぐらい食べ終わった地点で、2人ともお腹一杯・・・ 「ちょっと、私のワッフルとチキンなんてハーフサイズなのに、食べきれないって~!!!!どういうこと~!! いや~~~、悔しい~~~!!!」 Mr. Zも一緒、半分の地点で、ギブです・・・ 考えられない・・・ そしたら2人とも、脂汗をかき始めて・・・ 「ええええええええええええ、砂糖だ! 体が砂糖の分解で忙しいのかな?」と結局、とても悔しく残念なことに、半分だけ食べて、お店を出ることになりました。

Sad Moment

We are not sure what we are going to do for dinner… I am certainly not sure about my desert now… 4HB is doing something to our body and probably good thing to our body. Next week, I may not have much sugar crave like I had this week. Well, now I am planning the meal plan for next week. I will introduce that to you on my next blog! Stay tuned!!
いやー、この調子でいくと、夕飯何食べよう・・ デザート食べるの、ちょっと怖くなってきた・・・ 4HBのおかげ?で、体の具合が変化してるみたいです。 多分、良い変化でしょう。 ってか、そう思いたい・・・ さてさて、来週のメニュープランをそろそろ考えなくては。 考え次第、次のブログでお伝えしまーす! 乞うご期待!

Cinnamon rolls grilled

Most Fridays I decide that the week has been so busy and that I have accomplished so much, that I deserve to treat myself to some kind of edible reward. Often this will manifest itself in the afternoon with a beer at one of the local Boulder pubs (more on these in the future). But today’s unique experience lead me to pick up a grilled cinnamon roll from the Unseen Bean.

I always have a hard time convincing myself to enjoy sweet things at breakfast. I usually will go for the protein as my blood sugar will spike and I will feel really sick. With that in mind, it is a rare instance for me to order any sort of sweet first thing in the morning. But after pinning over the selection, I spied a small cinnamon roll sitting the front of the case all by its lonesome.

He seemed to be an omen of good fortune, and so I asked our baristess to prepare him for consumption. After about 2 minutes on the panini grill he had been transformed into some kind of warm morsel of comfort. Richly filled with chopped pecans, ground wheat, cinnamon and a light glaze, the swirled pastry tore apart in my hands soft but firmly bite after bite.

There really is nothing quite as spectacular as something so comforting and warm in the morning. The best part was that there was very little overbearing sweetness. If this had been acquired at a grocery store, the entire experience would have left me in a diabetic coma. But to my surprise and enjoyment, this tender offering was a well balanced combination of richness and texture. The pronounced aroma and taste of cinnamon was excellent and combined with the crunch of the now warmed pecan chunks, left a feeling of utter satisfaction lingering on until past the noon hour.

Thanks to the great staff at the Unseen Bean for making this morning’s non-traditional breakfast a pleasant one.

3 cheers!
