I saw this recipe on Facebook and adapted it to fit Cycle 1.

Chicken Salad
8 oz chicken breast
1cup red grapes, halved
1 stalk celery, diced
1/4 red onion, diced
1/2 cup plain nonfat yogurt
1tbsp red wine vinegar
1tsp olive oil
1 pkt Truvia

Spray non stick skillet with Pam. Pound chicken breast to flatten, if desired. Season as desired. Cook chicken over medium high heat for 7 minutes on each side, or till done. Let rest for 10 minutes then coarsely chop.

Mix yogurt, vinegar, oil, Truvia together.

Combine chicken, grapes, celery, onion, then add dressing.

I put mine over a bed of baby lettuce.

Grilled fish

Brush Mahi Mahi with olive oil and place on preheated grill. Add your spices such as basil and leaf oregano for Italian or squeeze lemon juice over it and garlic. I like to use olive oil induced with garlic. Flip after 3 mins and cook until not pink in center. Grill on foil asparagus, carrots and zucchini brushed with oil! Great summer meal! Can substitute any fish or chicken.

TACO OMELET! YUMMO

I came up with this this morning, wanted something lean and filling:

3 egg whites beaten
3 oz of ground turkey taco meat ( I keep this in my fridge)
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 slice FF American cheese
1 Tbsp Lite Sour Cream (can't find FF in my area)(could substitute NF yogurt)
2 Tbsp of Salsa*** (see below for good recipe)

Heat non stick skillet with spray of Olive Oil, sauté onions with turkey meat till onions are tender. Flatten meat/onions into a thin layer and pour egg whites evenly, let set a minute then flip, place cheese on 1/2 and fold over, cook till desired doneness. Top with sour cream and salsa!

Easy and Delicious!

***SALSA***
I buy the medium salsa in the deli department at Kroger and add a container of their pico de gallo from the produce section, it has fresh tomatoes, onions, peppers and cilantro. Makes the salsa real chunky and very very fresh tasting. Enjoy!

Grilled veggies like asparagus, carrots, tomatoes and peppers along with small sliced chicken pieces with cilantro and green onions wrapped in foil on the grill and a touch of olive oil. Quick, easy and lots of great veggies and protein.

I posted this over 2 years ago....But it's my favorite recipe for cycle one...so I thought I would post it again....if anyone else wants to try it.

Greek Turkey
OK....I just sort of made this up on they fly last night and it was supper yummy.....I guess it should have a name....It's Turkey (could use chicken or fish I guess)....and it has a Greek sort of flair.

Turkey Tenderloin -one package (I think it is 12 oz) cut in bite size chunks
1/4 onion large dice.....I used yellow, but in retrospect I think red would have been better
Grape tomatoes...I'm guessing I used about a cup...maybe a little more
a bag of fresh baby spinach
sea salt.pepper to taste
Greek oregano (I have an herb garden....so I use fresh) but dry would be fine
flat leaf parley
little bit of fat free feta

Saute the onion in a good drizzle of olive oil, once they turn translucent add the turkey and brown the meat.
Add the tomatoes.....once they start to burst....add the seasonings and herbs
then add the spinach and stir until it just begins to wilt.
Sprinkle with a little feta and serve.....this was 2 hefty servings

These are all items that are in Cycle1

Jane, this is how I do my Greek Chicken if you would like to try it:

Marinade:

I use a cruet that is used for good seasoning Italian dressing for the measurements but I use balsamic vinegar and a tablespoon of Greek seasoning instead of the Italian, and I use Olive Oil of course. I only use half of it to marinate my chicken at least 4 hours, mostly I marinate it over night. Then grill.

The other half of the "Greek dressing" I add a half teaspoon of truvia to, and alittle S/P to taste then use it to marinate cut cucumber and sweet onion in bite size pieces to eat on the side with my chicken.
Love Vadalia onions this way when they are in season.

This is wonderful!

Greek Chicken
Prep Time: 15 Minutes Cook Time: 30 Minutes Ready In: 8 Hours 45 Minutes
Servings: 8

"The Greeks know how to make heavenly chicken. The fresh lemon juice in the marinade makes the chicken moist, and the fresh herbs - rosemary, thyme, and oregano - make it flavorful. The garlic adds a bit of bite."
INGREDIENTS:
1/2 cup olive oil
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme 1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
2 lemons, juiced
1 (4 pound) chicken, cut into pieces(or chicken breasts)
DIRECTIONS:
1. In a glass dish, mix the olive oil, garlic, rosemary, thyme, oregano, and lemon juice. Place the chicken pieces in the mixture, cover, and marinate in the refrigerator 8 hours or overnight.
2. Preheat grill for high heat.
3. Lightly oil the grill grate. Place chicken on the grill, and discard the marinade. Cook chicken pieces up to 15 minutes per side, until juices run clear. Smaller pieces will not take as long.

I used chicken breasts for this.

This morning I did a remake of a favorite B&B meal....and it fits on C1:

Eggs with cheese & Dill
Nonstick 8" fry pan- spray with Pam butter.
Heat pan and break 4 whole eggs into the pan(one to each "corner" of the pan
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Sprinkle lightly with dry dill
Turn heat down to med low and cover with lid.
Cook until the center is set (hard)
Sprinkle small amount of FF Cheddar cheese on eggs
Place under broiler to melt cheese.
Serves- 2


All things are possible...maybe not easy...but possible and worthwhile!!! I believe in ME!

This is a FABULOUS recipe and totally adaptable to all cycles. I made it last week for lunches, sans breadcrumbs and pasta. I also did not use chicken sausage, I just used the ground chicken and some Krakow Nights seasoning from Penzey's. Enjoy!

Italian wedding soup
Ingredients

meatballs:
3/4 pound ground chicken
1/2 pound chicken sausage, casings removed - you want to use un-cooked chicken sausages, not the cooked ones. Go to your meat counter or butcher for this. They will even remove the casings for you if you ask.
2/3 cup panko breadcrumbs
2 teaspoons minced garlic (about 2-3 cloves)
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves - I used Italian flat leaf parsley
1/4 cup grated Pecorino Romano
1/4 cup grated Parmesan
3 tablespoons milk - I used 1%
1 extra-large egg, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more to taste
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus more to taste
soup:
2 tablespoons good olive oil
1 cup yellow onion, minced
1 1/2 cups diced carrots (3 carrots), cut into 1/4 inch pieces
3 celery stalks, cut into 1/4 inch pieces
10 cups (80 ounces) chicken stock - if you have homemade stock, great! I did not, so I used 2.5 32 oz boxes of organic chicken stock.
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 cup small pasta such as Fregola Sarda, tubetini or stars - I used Fregola Sarda pasta as I wanted a chewier and firmer pasta.
1/4 cup minced fresh dill
10-12 ounces baby spinach, washed and trimmed - I just used two 5oz (10oz total) containers of pre-washed spinach.
Instructions

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.

Let's prep your ingredients for the meatballs.Mince your garlic, lightly beat the egg, wash and chop up your parsley, measure out your breadcrumbs, milk and cheeses.

Place the following ingredients together in a medium bowl, ground chicken, chicken sausage, 2/3 cup bread crumbs, 2 teaspoons minced garlic, 3 tablespoons chopped parsley,1/4 cup grated Pecorino Romano, 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, 3 tablespoons milk, 1 lightly beaten egg, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.

Gently combine the ingredients together with a fork.

Now, it's time to make the meatballs. This recipe makes 40 1 to 1/4 inch meatballs (about the size of a large gum ball or jawbreaker). I couldn't fit all 40 on one baking sheet so I used another smaller one. If you arrange it and are more organized than me, you may be able to fit all 40 on one sheet. Line a large (and small, if you need it) rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Make your 40 meatballs and place them on the baking sheet. The meatballs don't have to be perfectly round and you can put them close together because they don't spread.

Note: The first time I made these I could only get 30 meatballs out of the mixture. I made them smaller the next time and got my 40. No worries if you only get 30 meatballs. It will still be plenty.

Bake for 30 minutes or until the meatballs are cooked through and are lightly browned. It took my meatballs 30 minutes to cook. Set the meatballs aside.

While your meatballs are cooking, prep the ingredients for the soup.

Wash and chop up your yellow onion, carrots, celery and dill. Measure out the ½ cup wine, the 1 cup of pasta and the10 cups of chicken stock.

In a large dutch oven or soup pot, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium low heat. Add the onion, carrots and celery and and sauté till softened, 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add the 10 cups chicken stock and the wine and bring to a boil. I turned up the heat to medium-high to help the soup to boil faster.

Add the 1-cup pasta to the simmering broth and cook for 6 to 8 minutes for orzo or standard white pasta, and 8-10 minutes for the fregola pasta. You only want to cook the pasta till its tender, as the pasta will absorb the broth and continue to get tender as it sits in the soup.

Add the fresh dill and then the meatballs to the soup and simmer for 1 minute. Taste the soup and add any additional salt or pepper that you wish. I added a pinch or two of salt, but didn't feel the need to add pepper.

Stir in the fresh spinach and cook for 1 minute, until the spinach is just wilted. It will seem like you're adding tons of spinach, but don't worry, it all cooks down.

Ladle the soup into some bowls and top with some fresh parmesan if you wish.

Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections, but instantly set about remedying them- every day begin the task anew. - St. Francis de Sales

Did you find a name for your recipe yet? This sounds like a cooked salad, a hot salad or a sauteed salad. Some European countries serve hot stuff over greens and call them salads!

I am pretty sure this would be C1 compliant:

Creamy Fruit Topping

3 oz Plain yogurt
3 oz Fat-free cottage cheese
Truvia to taste
dash of vanilla extract

Put in a blender and blend until smooth, chill and use as a topping on fruit.

I used homemade yogurt and this made it like a sauce. If you used Greek it will make more a cheesecake consistency.

After a hard day of wanting a cookie...I made this. Forget cookies! This is heavenly.

1 cup of sliced strawberries
1 cup of yogurt
1 tablespoon of sliced almonds
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon cocoa
3 pkgs of stevia or more to taste.
1 cut up flax muffin
Mix the first 6 ingredients then pour on top of the flax muffin. Oh my! I gave Carl a bite and he didn't want his coffee ice cream. It is so wonderful! Make sure that you eat it before 2 PM.

We are the ones we've been waiting for.

Turkey Italian Sausage
1 lb ground turkey breast
1 tsp fennel seed
.75 tsp ground black pepper
2 tsp chopped Italian parsley
.5 tsp garlic powder
.5 tsp onion powder
.5 tsp (more or less to taste) crushed red pepper

In an dry skillet over medium heat, toast the fennel seeds until they start to turn light golden brown - about 5 min. Move them around the pan constantly to avoid hot spots and burning.

Set the seeds aside to cool while you prep the rest of the ingredients. Mix the ground turkey thoroughly with all ingredients, cover and leave in the fridge for at least one hour.

Form into patties, meatballs, or crumble and cook as you would any loose sausage.

Serves 4
------------------------
Sausage and peppers
1 lb Turkey Italian sausage shaped into 4 patties
3 assorted bell peppers - the more colorful the better, sliced thin
1 medium onion, sliced thin

Heat a large heavy skillet over medium high heat. Spray with non-stick spray. Add the turkey patties and cook until golden brown. The amount of time will depend on how thick you make your patties.

Flip the patties, and add the onions to the skillet. Cook for 2-3 minutes, moving onions carefully around between the patties. Then add the peppers. Cook until the sausage patties are cooked thoroughy.

Serves 4.
Can be portioned and refrigerated for up to a week. Reheat for 1-2 minutes in the microwave.

This is a yummy greek soup called Artichoke Avgolemono. To make it cycle 1 friendly just omit the quinoa and rice (I promise it's still super yummy). As a vegetarian I like to add a diced Quorn fillet to each bowl. Also you could add chicken.
It's relatively quick and easy for a soup! It will really be a flavorful addition to the weeks salads.

This was featured in Spark. I think if you strain your yogurt, you could add more of it instead of the sour cream.

1/2 teaspoon dry mustard, 0.5 tsp
Garlic powder, 1 tsp
Parsley, dried, 1 tbsp
Fresh Chives, 1 tbsp chopped

Sour Cream, reduced fat, .50 cup

These sound delicious! I have everything I need to make these. I might even just cook it crumbled and put on a salad.

A trick I read with the chile in adobo is to take the whole can and puree it. Take the puree and put in a baggie, squeeze all the air out and then flatten it and then freeze. Very easy to just break off as much or as little as you need to add that good smokey heat! I also do this with tomato paste. I use to always be tossing the leftovers.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Saurkraut - I threw stuff together and will definitely make it again soon. If you use regular sauerkraut it won't taste the same.

1lb boneless, skinless chicken thighs (or substitute breasts)
1 jar BAVARIAN style sauerkraut (it's not sour and has caraway seeds in it)
1 bay leaf
3 whole allspice
1/3 c white wine (didn't really measure just counted to 2 while pouring LOL)

Put all in the slow cooker and cook until chicken is done. It only took 4 hours on low in my slow cooker but it's new and cooks hot.

In C2 you could add potatoes cut like for stew and in C3 you could have it over WW egg noodles.

Ranch Seasoning for Yogurt Dip from the SPCookbook

Mix a tablespoon of the seasoning with 1⁄2 cup of low-fat plain yogurt. It’s still creamy and tangy but with much less fat.
If you want a dressing that does not stick to the spoon, try adding 1⁄4 cup skim milk or low-fat buttermilk to the yogurt sauce.
Use fresh or dried herbs, but be sure to let the dressing sit for a few hours in the fridge
to let the flavors fully develop.
This seasoning blend is great in pasta dishes, over fish or chicken, or added to soups. Compared with the packaged variety you will save up to a half-teaspoon of sodium per serving.
Minutes to Prepare: 2

Number of Servings: 18

Ingredients

1 tbsp dried parsley
2 tsp dried chives
1 tsp garlic powder
1⁄2 tsp dry mustard
1⁄4 tsp celery seed


Directions

Combine the parsley, chives, garlic, dry mustard,
and celery seed in a small bowl. Store in
an airtight container.

PICKLES!

What you will need:
2-3 large cucumbers
Apple cider vinegar
Mason Jar
Cut the ends off the cucumbers and slice into long pickle like slices.

Place the pickles into the mason jar and pour the apple cider vinegar in until it reaches the very top of the jar. Fasten the lid on tightly and place in the fridge. Wait about three days for the apple cider vinegar to infuse into the cucumbers and your pickles will be ready!

My Breakfast Casserole

I make a breakfast casserole on a day that I have time. I saute onion, mushrooms and whatever other vegetable I have on hand. Sometimes it's defrosted chopped broccoli or fresh chopped spinach or swiss chard or zuchini. I put them in a sprayed 11x17 pan and then sprinkle some shredded cheddar cheese on top. Then I add 1c probiotic cottage cheese to 6 eggs and 1 cup of liquid egg whites. You can leave out the cottage cheese if you can't find it. Pour the beaten egg mixture over the vegetables and bake at 350 degrees for about 40 mn or until a knife comes out clean in the center. I'm not sure about the time because I think it depends on how many vegetables I add and sometimes I add more egg whites if I add more vegetables. Add salt and pepper if desired.
When it's done I cut it into squares and have it for several days. It's almost better the next day. You can experiment with any vegetables you like. I've even added feta instead of cheddar.

Asian Lettuce Cups with Ground Chicken (or Ground Turkey)

Slightly modified from here: http://www.kalynskitchen.com/2009/03/recip
e-for-asian-lettuce-cups-or-wraps.html

I make these with ground chicken but we cannot easily find turkey in asia. I have to mince my own chicken but it's worth it. If you are making this for others, you can also serve with chopped peanuts on the side, and next time I'm going to also serve with bean sprouts as I think that will be a nice addition.

Makes 4-6 servings
1 T peanut oil or vegetable oil (I use olive oil for 17 DD diet friendliness)
3 T minced red onion or shallots
2 T minced garlic (i use fresh)
2 T grated ginger root (fresh if possible)
1 1/2 lbs. ground turkey (or turkey)
4 T soy sauce (try to find low-sodium)
1 T Chile Garlic Sauce (or slightly more if you like spicy foods - I use Sriracha)
1 tsp. fish sauce (optional)
1 cup chopped fresh cilantro (about 1/2 large bunch)
1 large head or 2 small heads Boston Lettuce or butter lettuce, or substitute 1 head iceberg lettuce

Chop onion and set aside. Peel ginger root, then grate with the large side of a cheese grater, and chop garlic if using fresh garlic. Heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan, add onion and saute about 2 minutes, then add garlic and ginger root and saute about one minute more.

Add ground turkey to frying pan (with a bit more oil if needed) and break apart and spread out with turner, then add soy sauce, chili garlic sauce, and fish sauce. Cook until the turkey is brown and crumbling apart, and the sauce is slightly reduced, about 5 minutes.

While turkey cooks, wash and chop fresh cilantro to make 1 cup. Remove the core end from lettuce, separate leaves, and wash in salad spinner and spin dry (or wash under running water and dry with paper towels.) Chop peanuts and put in small bowl to serve at the table.

When turkey is done, add chopped cilantro and cook 1-2 minutes more. Serve filling and lettuce leaves in separate bowls. Each person takes a lettuce leaf, fills with desired amount of turkey mixture and then eats the mixture from the lettuce cup. I fold the lettuce cup over when I eat it, so it's kind of taco-shaped, but some people like to wrap the lettuce clear around the filling.

Today's bake and freeze meal were Mini Frittatas, these have Pico De Gallo and a little Fat Free Cheddar in them. Just to mix it up.

6 Eggs
4 Egg Whites
1 Cup Pico Degallo (drained) any diced up veggies will work
Fat Free Cheddar Cheese

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray muffin pan with cooking spray. Put eggs and egg whites in bowl and mix until fluffy, add the pico mix again, divide among muffin cups, I ended up with 10, add a pinch of FF Cheese to each muffin cup, I used a fork to mix it in. Then Bake for 20-25 minutes.

These will make a nice quick breakfast and go well with that turkey breakfast sausage I made, I will be freezing these. YUMMY.

I'm thinking that it might be ok for cycle 1 without the coconut. Use Stevia or Truvia in place of the sugar.

Here is the recipe that I followed for the Cauliflower Crust Pizza - No yeast at all.

www.eat-drink-smile.com/2011/04/cau
lif
lower-crust-pizza.html


Cauliflower Crust Pizza
Serves 2

Ingredients:
1 cup cooked, riced cauliflower
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp dried oregano
1/2 tsp crushed garlic
1/2 tsp garlic salt
olive oil (optional)
pizza sauce, shredded cheese and your choice of toppings*

Directions:

To "Rice" the Cauliflower:
Take 1 large head of fresh cauliflower, remove stems and leaves, and chop the florets into chunks. Add to food processor and pulse until it looks like grain. Do not over-do pulse or you will puree it. (If you don't have a food processor, you can grate the whole head with a cheese grater). Place the riced cauliflower into a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 8 minutes. There is no need to add water, as the natural moisture in the cauliflower is enough to cook itself.

One large head should produce approximately 3 cups of riced cauliflower. The remainder can be used to make additional pizza crusts immediately, or can be stored in the refrigerator for up to one week.

To Make the Pizza Crust:

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Spray a cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, stir together 1 cup cauliflower, egg and mozzarella. Add oregano, crushed garlic and garlic salt, stir. Transfer to the cookie sheet, and using your hands, pat out into a 9" round. Optional: Brush olive oil over top of mixture to help with browning.
Bake at 450 degrees for 15 minutes.
Remove from oven. To the crust, add sauce, toppings and cheese. Place under a broiler at high heat just until cheese is melted (approximately 3-4 minutes).
Enjoy!

*Note that toppings need to be precooked since you are only broiling for a few minutes.


Another good recipe that I used is:

escapefromobesity.blogspot.com/2010/

/cauliflower-pizza.html
but her measurements are a little less clear (she says to steam "some" cauliflower") - I used a small head of it when I followed this recipe and it was fine!

@DTSobel,

I used the marinara sauce recipe on this 17DD site: http://tksinclair.com/?page_id=277

However, like most recipes I tweaked a bit to my liking. Here's my slight revisions:

MARINARA SAUCE RECIPE

1/3 c olive oil
2 cloves garlic peeled and sliced
3T finely chopped parsley (optional)
3T finely chopped onion
2can 28oz whole tomatoes (Original recipe calls for 1 can, but i found it too oily overall and added an additional can)
1 bay leaf
dash salt
dash black pepper
fresh basil leaves
Nutmeg and cinammon to taste (this may be a bit odd for you, but i suggest experimenting a bit with it. It helps with the acidity and i think it adds a nice flavor)

1.In a large saucepan, heat oil over med heat
2.Add garlic and saute for 2-3 min
3.Add parsley and onion. Slowly add tomatoes. (Stir to break up tomatoes if using whole)
4.Add bay leaf, salt and pepper, bring to a boil
5.Cover and simmer sauce over low heat for as long as you like! (the original recipe calls for 15 minutes but i simmered for 4 hours!)
6. Add some fresh finely chopped basil leaves if available serve over pasta or rice (this might be a good way to use up those leftover tomatoes from the garden and freeze the sauce for winter).

I made enough to fill two large jars so one is frozen.

PATCHERIFIC do you have a recipe for your homemade marinara sauce? The recipe sounds great, but I don't know how to make marinara, unless you count make a jar of ragu....

I'm eating TOO TOO well these days. Spoiled for choice. Here's another great recipe to share:

Roasted Green Beans with Red Pepper and Garlic and Ginger. I posted to SparkPeople recipes:
http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-de
tail.asp?recipe=1897609&ff=1


This is originally from Kalyn's Kitchen, one of my favorite sites. Please visit: http://www.kalynskitchen.com/2
011/11/recipe-for-roasted-
green-beans-and-red.html

Number of Servings: 4

Tips: I think this would also taste great with ground pork (C2) or ground chicken (C1)!


Ingredients

4-5 large garlic cloves, finely minced
1 heaping tablespoon minced gingerroot
1 T olive oil (original recipe calls for 2 but i watch my oil intake)
1 red bell pepper, cut into thin strips
1 lb. thin French-style green beans, ends trimmed and cut in half
salt and fresh-ground black pepper to taste


Directions

Preheat oven to 450F/230C. Mince 4-5 large garlic cloves, enough to make a heaping tablespoon of minced garlic. Peel ginger root and finely mince enough ginger to make a heaping tablespoon of minced ginger. Put olive oil, minced garlic, and minced ginger in a glass bowl or measuring cup and let it marinate while you prep vegetables. (This will slightly season the oil.)

Cut red bell pepper into fourths lengthwise, then remove seeds and trim any white pithy parts. Cut off rounded top and bottom parts to make it easier to cut even strips, then cut each piece of pepper into thin crosswise strips. Trim ends of green beans and cut them in half. (To trim beans easily, loosely grab a handful and stand them up on the cutting board to line up the ends, trim, and then repeat with the other end.)

Put the green beans and red pepper strips into a medium-sized bowl and then toss with the olive oil, minced garlic, and minced ginger. Season to taste with salt and fresh ground black pepper. Spread the vegetables out on a large baking sheet, arranging it so vegetables aren't crowded (as much as you can.) Roast 15 minutes, or until a few beans are starting to look browned and the veggies are tender-crisp.

Serving Size: Makes 2-4 servings

Number of Servings: 4

I really loved this side dish. Tomorrow I'm going to try it over chicken breast.

"Slow Cooked" Spinach and Marinara

I modified this original dish to use fresh vegetables, cut back on oil, and used homemade marinara sauce. I also didn't use a slow cooker and just did it on the stove top.

Ingredients
1 tbsp olive oil
1 onion, chopped
5 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup grated carrot
1 package of fresh spinach, cleansed and chopped.
2 2/3 (6 ounce) cans tomato paste
1 package of white mushrooms, sliced.
2 tablespoons dried oregano
2 tablespoons dried basil
2 1/2 tablespoons crushed red pepper
2 bay leaves
2 cups of homemade marinara sauce


Directions
In a large pot, saute onion and garlic in olive oil until soft. Add carrot, tomato paste, mushrooms, oregano, basil, crushed red pepper, bay leaves and marinara sauce. Cover and cook on low for 2 hours. Add spinach and simmer for an additional 30 minutes.

Hi! Someone asked me to post this recipe. I think it actually comes from the 17DD book, but I might be wrong.

Flaxseed dressing

1 tablespoon flaxseeds
3 tablespoons champagne vinegar or white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon finely chopped shallots or green onion
2 teaspoons Dijon-style mustard
1 clove garlic, minced

Mix all ingredients together well with a wisk. Refrigerate. Shake/mix well before serving.

1 serving = 1oz, makes about 4 servings

**FYI I used 1oz on my salad and it was too much. I could have probably cut it down by half.

Recipe: Modified Curried Chicken and Grape Salad Lettuce Wraps


First, here's the original recipe:
http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ellie
-krieger/curried-chicken-salad-recipe/
index.html

Here's my make over:


Ingredients:

1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
1 cup water
1 1/4 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast halves, no more than 3/4-inch thick
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
1 teaspoon curry powder
1 cup halved red grapes
1/4 cup chopped cilantro leaves
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
Boston Lettuce (for the lettuce cups / wraps)
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Directions

Bring the broth and water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add chicken to broth and simmer, covered, for 8 minutes. Turn the heat off and let chicken stand in the cooking liquid, covered, until cooked through, about 20 minutes. Remove the chicken from the broth and cool completely in the refrigerator. Cut into 1/4-inch dice.
In a large bowl, stir together the yogurt and curry powder. Fold in the chicken, grapes and cilantro. if you wish, season to taste with salt and pepper (I didn't think either was necessary).
Serve with boston lettuce, either in cups or as a wrap.

I made this tonight and it was super easy and, IMO, pretty good. Even my kids gobbled it up. It's listed somewhere....but I can't remember exactly where I got it. I've modified the original recipe a bit.

Oriental Chicken Breast "Packets" (1 serving)
~2tsp olive oil
~2c spinach
~1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
~1 uncooked chicken breast (approx 6oz)
~1tsp teriyaki sauce

Take a large square of aluminum foil (approx 16") and brush w/ 2tsp of olive oil. Off center, place approximately 2c fresh baby spinach, then chicken breast, then sprinkle with sliced mushrooms on top. Drizzle with 1 tsp teryaki sauce.

Fold foil over to make a packet, making sure food is covered. Crimp ends. Place on baking sheet and bake at 450 degrees for 20 minutes. Open carefully and enjoy. Someone mentioned it's good with rice on the side for cycle 2+

SALMON AND SPINACH SALAD WITH FLAXSEED DRESSING from diabetic living magazine online

12 ounces cooked salmon,* broken into chunks
3 cups fresh baby spinach
1 cup coarsely chopped cucumbers
1/2 cup quartered red onion slices
1/4 cup Flaxseed Dressing (below)

1. In a large bowl, combine cooked salmon, spinach, cucumbers, and red onion. Pour Flaxseed Dressing over salad; toss gently to coat. Makes 4 (1-1/2-cup) main-dish servings.

Tip*Test Kitchen Tip: Cook the salmon by grilling or broiling. You'll need a 1-pound fresh or frozen salmon fillet to give 12 ounces salmon after cooking. Thaw salmon, if frozen. Rinse salmon; pat dry with paper towels.
To grill salmon: Measure thickness of salmon. Place salmon fillet, skin side down, on a greased grill rack directly over medium coals. Grill for 4 to 6 minutes per 1/2-inch thickness of fish or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, turning once halfway through grilling. Using a wide metal spatula, lift fillet away from the skin to a serving platter. (Scrape skin from grill rack and discard.)
To broil salmon: Preheat broiler. Skin salmon; measure thickness of salmon. Place salmon on unheated rack of broiler pan. Broil 4 to 5 inches from heat for 4 to 6 minutes per 1/2-inch thickness of fish or until fish flakes easily when tested with a fork, turning once halfway through broiling.

Flaxseed Dressing

1 tablespoon flaxseeds
3 tablespoons champagne vinegar or white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon finely chopped shallots or green onion
2 teaspoons Dijon-style mustard
1 clove garlic, minced


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place flaxseeds in a shallow baking pan; bake for 10 minutes. Cool. Place toasted flaxseeds in a spice grinder and pulse until ground to a fine powder. In a small bowl, whisk together ground flaxseeds, vinegar, olive oil, water, shallots, mustard, and garlic.
Makes 1/2c

Break meat apart and cook over medium heat for 10 - 12 minutes or until lightly browned, no longer pink, juices are clear and meat reaches an internal temperature of 165° F. Add 1/4 cup of tomato sauce and 1/2 cup chicken broth to the pan. Reduce heat and simmer over low heat for about 5 minutes. Add chopped fresh cilantro or parsley to the turkey mixture. There will be about 2 cups of turkey mixture.
v Cut bell peppers in half lengthwise and remove seeds and stem. Put in baking dish and spoon about 1/3 cup of the turkey mixture into each pepper half. Place all stuffed peppers on a baking dish and pour the rest of the chicken broth in the bottom of the pan. Cover with foil and bake for 35 minutes. When done, sprinkle with cheese before serving.

Cauliflower Bread and for Pizza crust:

6 cups of riced raw cauliflower
1 1/2 cup of egg whites
1 1/2 cup of nutritional yeast (you might have to go to a health food store for this)
3 cups of Kraft Fat Free Mozzarella
1 1/2 cup of grated Parmesan
1 1/2 tablespoon of garlic powder
seasoning of choice I used basil and an Italian herb mix

To "rice" the cauliflower: I did this with my Cuisenart with a grating blade. I have read that you can use the "s" blade or hand grate with a cheese grater.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. On parchment paper lined 18"x26" baking sheet (I recommend this instead of spraying the pan because I tried that and it stuck!), press mixture flat as thin as you can get it without having holes. Sprinkle with herbs.

Bake crusts for 20 min and carefully turn over and bake for another 10-15 min

I did not have the nutritional yeast so I made it with out. Also I used 1 egg instead of egg whites. and 1/2 medium head of cauliflower. I also baked mine at 350 degrees for 30 mins then flipped it over using parchment paper sprayed with pam. Laid on top with pam side against bread and with another like baking sheet. Flip. Then I baked for 10 mins. Sprinkled with fat free mozzarella And italian herbs and spices. Put back in oven till cheese was melted. Cut into strips and put a spoonful of low carb tomato sauce on top. Taste like Pizza.

Turkey Burger;
1 lg carrot chopped in a processor
3 stalk celery chopped in a processor
1 med onion chopped in a processor
Seasoning; salt, pepper,
2 Tbl. Mc Cormick's Grill Mates Roasted Garlic & Herb
Add 3 lb 93% ground turkey
Makes 11 6oz burgers

Directions:

1. Mix all ingredients ( except salt and pepper) together and make 6oz patties.

2. Heat grill on high and coat grates with oil.

3. Place on grill, flip after around 5 mins and heat till done.

These are so good. I took the grill directions from another recipe similar to this.
I used my griddle in the house. I keep them in a plastic ziplock bag in the fridge and grab one and heat it up. Too easy.
