As part of my diabetes management plan, I try to keep my blood glucose (BG) no higher than 140 mg/dL. A few months ago I noticed that doing so was becoming more challenging. My trend toward high BG. In an attempt to combat this I've been experimenting with various low-carbohydrate recipes.

A quick low-carb coconut flour porridge breakfast cereal for lazy mornings.

This recipe is a variation on a recipe I found on Low Carb Maven. I used the ingredients I had on hand. Based on the information I compiled from FatSecret this Coconut Flour Porridge had about 345 calories, 15.5g of carbohydrate, 11.6g of protein, and 25.98g of fat.


  • 2 tablespoons organic coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons Trader Joe’s organic flax seeds
  • 34 cup water
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 large Farmers Hen House free range egg
  • 2 teaspoons ShopRite butter
  • 1 tablespoon ShopRite heavy cream
  • 2 packets Splenda


  1. Beat the egg in a small bowl.
  2. Grind the flax seeds in a small kitchen grinder.
  3. In a small pot, heat the coconut flour, ground flax seeds, salt and water. When the porridge begins to simmer, turn the heat down to medium-low and whisk until the porridge begins to thicken.
  4. Remove the coconut flour porridge from heat and add the beaten egg, a half at a time, while whisking continuously. Place pot back on the heat and continue to whisk until the porridge thickens.
  5. Remove pot from the heat and continue to whisk for about 30 seconds before adding the butter, cream and sweetener.

Getting Semantic With Microformats, Part 2: XFN (ablognotlimited.com)


In Part 1 of this series, I explained various implementations of the rel microformat on A Blog Not Limited. While explaining rel-me, I briefly touched on the XFN microformat.

It's now time to spend some more time on this very cool microformat, which was one of the first. Putting a H...

Although I understand the concept of microformats and have used them in limited ways in the past, for me this article clarifies their usage.

I ran my domain through IndieWebify.me. Almost all of the rel=“me” links either don't link back or couldn’t be fetched. The following work perfectly and can be used with the IndieAuth authentication plug-in1.

That's 4 out of 43. Most of these profiles have links back to my website. I know for sure that my keybase.io, and instagram and medium profiles have a link to my website. So why are many of these being reported as don't link back?

I ran Chris Aldrich's boffosock.com domain through and I saw similar results.

I ran my Instagram profile through IndieWebify.com and got this interesting result.

IndieWebify.me, Instagram

That explains why Instagram doesn’t link back. Instagram isn’t using the supplied information to create a microformated profile. There are no rel=“me” links in my Instagram profile page.

In the HTML source for my GitHub profile, I can easily find the HTML that links back to my web site.

<a href="https://islandinthenet.com" class="u-url" rel="nofollow me">https://islandinthenet.com</a>

So … what’s the point of filling out all the extended profile field provided by the microformats2 plugin if very few of the social media silos link back my web site?

I also noted that IndieWebify.me parsed the h-card on my website and complained that I was missing a email address. Well … I filled in the email field in my profile and but it is indeed not included in the h-card on my web site. So …. what’s going on there?

I syndicated this post to Facebook and Twitter and Goolge+ but yet IndieWebify.me could not find any of those copies.

There are a host of issues with many of these plugins that I don’t know where to start. In the next few weeks I will be documenting the number of these issues.
