Rosie, I addressed the plastic vs. Thanks for the question! Just watch them and see. I suppose you could grease the tray…? Parchment paper actually works well for fruit rolls, so why not fruit? Charis, I do peeled and unpeeled, depending on how lazy I feel. Yes, the apples are sliced first, then lightly steamed. Does anyone have any ideas on how to keep them soft and chewy and not crunchy?

Does the soaking in lemon juice and water help with that? The only trick is just to dehydrate for a shorter time. Hope it worked out! I never dry my fruits over degrees.

At this temp your strawberries will be chewy. Also they will be nice and red. Also, you need a dehydrator with a fan. I have an Excalibur. I also make beef jerky. When I dehydrate apples I peel and core them. They soak them in a water lemon juice solution they sprinkle them with sugar and cinnamon. I use tart apples. They turn out the best. I have a ton of raspberries filling my freezer — any tips on how to convert the frozen delights to dehydrated?

Mother Nature gave us heavy rain this spring, so the berries were extra good and plentiful when they came!

I am interested in hydrating apples and the length of time it takes-also other items of interest when hydrating apples. I do rehydrate peppers, and it usually takes about 2 hours in warm water. Thanks for this wonderful article! This was the point that I starting taste testing them and very few are making it back to the dehydrator. My Aunt who has now passed, used to dehydrate apples and pears. What she would do is dip them in jello crytals while they were still damp and then dehydrate.

They never did last long they were so good. The best flavors were orange, cherry, raspberry. We bought a dehydrater at a garage sale the other day because I own pet rats and I make my own diet for them and I include dry fruit but it was getting expensive to buy so we make our own now!

The ratties love them! We bought some apple chips at a garden morning yesterday. My son and I loved them so much that I asked around town if anybody was selling a dehydrator. Thanks for the information! Hi Katie, thank you for all this wonderful info on dehydrating fruit.

My husband cooks most of our food in solar ovens and now we have a dehydrating component to use. My task will be keeping the temp low enough as solar ovens are hot. What happens if it gets hotter, you mentioned enzymes?

Thank you, this was thee most user friendly site I found. Judy, Happy to help; sorry it took so many days! So you can turn it up if you want! Alright — how do I get past my fear of everything going bad? Or teach yourself — put part in the fridge and a handful in a bag in a drawer and label the date — see how long it lasts! LOL, thanks, this puts my mind at ease. Anyway, thanks, going to try again. I have had trouble with my batch of bananas from the dehydrator. I put them in zip top baggies and they have developed kitchen moths in the baggies.

Even the baggies in the tin container. I know I have never heard of moths hatching in dried foods. Will that happen to my other fruits and veggies too? Did that happen more than once?

How long do we dehydrate banana chips? And do i need to soak them or sprinkle them with something? Would love a response. Chips take maybe hours? I am going to try the apple recipe tonight. I was wondering though how long do you suggest soaking them for? Hey there, thanks for the great post!

However, for future batches, what texture should the apples be after steaming? Around three minutes of steaming left me with half almost translucent, softened, and half solid apples. Also, have you ever dried apple rings instead of slices, and if so, any suggestions for cutting out the core neatly? Your apples just steamed a little too long. I normally steam my apples 1. I test it out, if they begin to turn any a few minutes or so after steamed then I simple steam them for 30 seconds more.

So, drug and supplement industry interest in patenting natural food product remedies is a double-edged sword. Without it, there would never have been this study—showing not only benefits for cholesterol, but also arterial function: It also appears to decrease the effects of stress on the heart.

Even worse if you dont eat enough protein your body starts breaking down your lean muscle mass for fuel and it can result in damage to your body, your health, and overall performance. So making sure you are getting the right amount of healthy fat and not over or under consuming protein is vital to your success. Remember Lazy Keto ignores these essential macros almost entirely. The web and social media groups are filled with people sharing low-carb desserts, sugar-free candy and prepackaged foods filled with crap calling it keto.

In my opinion, encouraging one another to indulge in low-carb replacements for the foods like brownies and ice cream that frankly got people unhealthy and overweight in the first place is a misstep. Keto is all about healthy whole food, removing processed foods, sugar and consuming food that is good for us. Of course, everything in moderation. Remember this is a total lifestyle change, not just a fad diet.

You are working on your mental relationship with food as much as the tastes and dependencies you have developed over a lifetime. If you are just getting started, I suggest trying a more informed approach by tracking what you are eating and seeing how you react to the new changes in your diet.

You will learn a great deal about your body and the foods you eat. Try it for a few weeks and see what may be causing you to stall. Are you overdoing the fat, overeating or under-eating protein or consuming too many calories?

You will know for sure with just a little more effort, and you can adjust as needed. I think you will be surprised by how much impact even small changes can have on your keto success. If you are new to keto or just want to get a more in depth overview of the ketogenic diet make sure to read our comprehensive Keto Diet Guide.

It has everything you need to get started and detailed info for achieving success. You can find it at https: It uses all 3 just like Keto but the ratios change and ketosis is never a goal.

I agree there is not a perfect app out there, but I think Senza is pretty good and is my personal favorite at the moment. I use Carb Manager and it works great for tracking carbs, net carbs, calories, protein, and fat.

You can snap a pic of your food, scan labels, search for foods, add recipes, etc etc etc. Are you pretty much against desserts and sweets then?

I track my macros using Cronometer and find it to be comprehensive. I am hungry and having cravings so maybe I need a stricter approach. The fewer carbs you eat, the more effective it is for weight loss if that is your goal.

I recommend starting out as strictly as you can. SO if things like cake, candy and sugar got you unhappy, then its time to evaluate and change your relationship with those things if you want to find ultimate success and happiness with how you feel and look.

Once you start to cut them out, you will notice your cravings for them will subside. If you are hungry and have cravings, you may consider upping your healthy fat as that usually helps satiate your appetite. There is no hard a fast rule. This is life after all, and we all need a bit of ice cream occasionally. I do have an occasional craft beer or low carb desert but in moderation and I try and compensate my diet on that day to lessen the impact of those additional carbs.

Everyone is different and what knocks me out of ketosis may not knock you out. Nobody is fanatical here! My take on lazy keto vs. Whatever works for you or anyone else is perfectly all right. I eat lots of green veggies, eggs, meat, healthy fats, I make my own bread using almond flour etc. I usually stay under 20g of carbs but never go over 30g. The only thing I could not give up was an ounce of milk in my coffee in the morning. I thought I was doing pretty much strict Keto until I read that sugar free peanut butter is not keto.

I buy organic pb and the only ingredients are peanuts and sea salt. What is your take on pb? Should I cut it out of my diet and if so, what would you replace it with? Hi Nevie, As you probably know many foods can cause or increase inflammation everything from sugar, refined starches, vegetable oil, dairy, red meat, grains, foods high in trans fats, processed corn, foods containing processed chemicals and additives and last but not least peanuts.
