Speed Cooking Discoveries

dry ingredientsSpeed Cooking Discoveries

The ideas began to come together as I prepared for our trip to Mexico. I knew we had a kitchen in our condo there, but I knew I couldn’t take bags of almond flour, etc. I wouldn’t even have room to take my tupperware containers. So I got the idea of putting the dry ingredients together into foodsaver bags before we went.

Same Ingredients in Varying Amounts

What a crazy discovery. In my Paleo cooking, I basically used the very same ingredients in my recipes in varying amounts every single time:

Dry Ingredients

  • Almond Flouralmondflour (use this the most)
  • Arrowroot Flour
  • Tapioca Flour
  • Coconut Flour (sometimes)
  • Sea Salt
  • Baking Soda (possibly Baking Powder)

Wet Ingredients

  • Cage Free Eggs
  • Raw Honey
  • Raw Agave Nectar
  • Pure Vanilla Extract



Begin Your Speed Cooking by Preparing Ahead

  1. Have these basic dry ingredients on hand and ready to use
  2. Prepare ahead by premixing your recipes with the dry ingredients and then labeling each package. I used a black marker and wrote on each bag the Name of the Recipe, then the wet ingredients with amounts that I would need to add when I made the recipe. I also noted cooking temperature and time to cook on each.
  3.  I first mixed each recipe ingredients in bowls. Next I came back and transferred each into a 2 cup measuring cup to be able to pour it easily into my FoodSaver Bag. (Probably an easier way to do this, but I was doing several at once and this seemed the most efficient.)

    The FoodSaver is one of my Favorite Kitchen Tools

My FoodSaver is really old, but this will give you an idea. I am working on premixes to take with us on our big family trip to Gulf Shores in August. Each weekend I will premix more. I will make packages for the following for sure:

  • Paleo Biscuits
  • Paleo Snickerdoodles
  • Paleo Chocolate Chip Cookies
  • Manna Bread
  • Lemon Pound Cake

  1. Saving Precious Minutes

I am all about speed cooking and saving any precious minutes I can. For this reason I will do cooking in stages:

  • Set out ingredients
  • Premix
  • Package
  • Label
