I got Coumarin poisoning from "cinnamon"!!! "Cinnamon" sold in the U.S. is a different plant "Cassia" entirely which contains toxic crap.
I also got nutmeg poisoning which isn't fun, just dumb.
Jeez. This is the worst instructable I've ever done. I'm confused and possibly brain-damaged. What's going on?
Okay, if you're not totally poisoned and If you're on a low-carb diet this stuff is totally within the rules.
This eggnog is low-carb and high-protein. It's so decadent and delicious it seems like it should be illegal. Check your diet rules, but if you're on a low-carbohydrate diet such as Atkins
, Zone, Caveman, or one I'm working on, the "cavity healer" or "tooth" diet, this eggnog can be just the thing.
If you're lactose-intolerant either add a lactase pill or substitute your favorite <seedmilk plus calcium source> for the cow milk.
Adjust the recipe to conform to your rules and taste.
Here's the basic recipe:

enough but not too much (it's fricking poisonous
at more than 1 gram/day. see next step.)Xylitol
1 level teaspoon - It's a natural tooth-healthy sugar
vanilla a few drops or a teaspoon.FREQUENTLY ANTICIPATED QUESTIONS:Q: POISONED??
A: see the next step.Q: Other than being poisonous, such a rich drink is healthy?
A: Books such as Protein Power
and the Atkins books
explain body's metabolism and how getting your calories from protein and oil can be healthy.
When you quit carbs you'll need to eat a lot more oil than you're used to just to get enough calories. In the past I haven't managed to do this and have developed food cravings which broke the diet. My current "tooth-healing" diet isn't supposed to be a weight-loss diet, which makes it easier ingest enough fats and avoid food cravings. I haven't had bread, cookies, etc in months and don't miss them. I've got a lot more energy than I used to. I'm getting skinny but not losing weight, which means my muscles and skeleton are getting stronger.
