FAT BURNING DRESSING

1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1/2 teaspoon of salt free Mrs. Dash original blend
1/2 teaspoon of ground black pepper.

Mix all ingredients together

When I make mine, I double the receipe the lemon juice and the apple cider vinegar and the olive oil stayed the same 1 tbs. I use some times mince garlic and garlic pepper seasoning

Enjoy!

Kale Chips

Use parchment paper and you have zero cleanup!

Here's the recipe:

Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F.

Remove the ribs from the kale and cut or tear into 1 1/2-inch pieces. Lay on a baking sheet and toss with the olive oil and garlic powder, I use a MISTO it works great, hardly use any oil at all.

Bake until crisp, turning the leaves halfway through, about 20 minutes. Serve as finger food.


TIPS:

1. DO NOT WASH KALE (unless it really is dirty. Most of the time pulling the stem off got rid of any dirt. Plus, your oven is going to off kill any bacteria, so don't freak. This is going to keep allow your kale to get crispy.

2. Reduce oven heat to 200 F, and cook the kale lower and longer. Keeps the bitterness down and allows any moisture to evaporate.

3.Sprinkle a tiny tiny bit (not even 1/2 tsp of cane sugar over the kale right before you put it in the oven. This will counteract the bitterness.

I haven't tried #3 - I like the taste with the garlic powder.

#1 is because if the leaves aren't dry or there is too much stalky part, it won't crisp as well. These are so fun to eat. They don't keep well, so you eat them in 1 day.

Sunny Citrus Salad Dressing
From the kitchen of Eileen VanTassel

Instant Clear Jel works well to thicken dressings and sauces that are not going to be heated. Regular Clear Jel can be used to thicken sauces, gravy and puddings that are going to be cooked.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Chilling Time: 10 minutes
Servings: makes 1 ½ cups

1 ½ large lemons or two small ones
1 large orange
¼ cup water
1 tablespoon evaporated cane juice sugar or Stevia to taste
1 teaspoon dry mustard
½ teaspoon salt
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon instant clear jel

Juice the lemons and orange. This should make 1 ¼ cups juice. Place in a
blender jar and add the rest of ingredients except instant clear jel. Blend briefly, and while blender is running add the instant clear jel. Dressing will thicken slightly in the refrigerator. If a thicker dressing is desired, add another teaspoon of the instant clear jel.

Hints: Instant clear jel is a modified corn starch and is used to thicken uncooked products. It is great for making salad dressings, and fresh fruit sauces. Strawberry sauce is especially good made this way. Blend a few strawberries in a blender, add a little sweetener and the instant clear jel while blender is running, then pour the sauce over sliced strawberries. The regular clear jel works for cooked items, and is better than
cornstarch as it stays smooth and silky even when chilled.

From Provida:

Preworkout Pineapple Upside Down Cake -- Inside


• 3 cups oatmeal, (can grind if you want...I don't)
• 1 teaspoon nsa baking powder**
• 2 teaspoons cinnamon
• 1 cup Splenda
• 12 fresh egg whites
• 3 cups pineapple chunks
• 3 cups unsweetened applesauce
• 3 teaspoons vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Blend dry ingredients in a medium bowl. Set aside. In a large bowl, beat egg whites until foamy. Then fold the applesauce, pineapple and vanilla extract into the egg whites. With a rubber spatula, blend in the dry ingredients with the egg white mixture. Pour into a 13" x 9" pan (I use Pam, but you can use Reynold's Release Wrap or cooking parchment). Bake in the oven for 50 -60 minutes or until golden on the top. Allow to cool completely in the pan, and then remove the entire cake by lifting it out by the wrap. Slice into individual pieces and store in airtight containers the refrigerator.

From Provida:


Carrot Cake Deluxe

As written, this recipe contains 6 portions, each containing 2 oz protein, ½ cup carb and somewhere between 4-7 tablespoons of Veggie A. Because of the Veggie A, the recipe is automatically relegated to lunch or dinner only.

• 12 egg whites
• 1¼ cup Splenda
• 1 teaspoon almond extract
• 1¼ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
• 1½ cups oats
• 1 lb carrots peeled and pureed
• ¼ teaspoon cream of tartar,** optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Peel and puree (very fine) carrots and set aside. Beat egg whites and cream of tartar until soft peaks are formed. Gradually beat in Splenda, almond extract, and pumpkin spice. Slowly mix in pureed carrots and oats until well blended. Pour into a nonstick 9x9 pan and bake for 40-45 minutes until toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Cool and cut into 6 equal pieces and enjoy!.


This Recipe Contains: Protein A, Carb B, Veggie A



***I plan on trying it with zucchini, so it will be snack-friendly****

From the Provida Website, but altered to make 12 muffins:

Ginger Bread Toasties

• 24 egg whites (you can use 12 egg whites and 12 powdered egg whites for a denser muffin; or, use only 12 egg whites and substitute an extra protein)
• 3 cups oatmeal ground into flour using blender or food processor
• ½ cup Splenda for baking
• 2 tablespoons Sugar Twin Brown Sugar Substitute, optional (I didn't use)
• ½ cup unsweetened applesauce
• 1.5 tablespoon ground ginger
• 1.5 tablespoon ground cinnamon
• 3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
• 3/4 teaspoon ground cloves
• 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a muffin tin Pam** and wipe with a paper towel to remove any excess. (Or if you have the 4" muffin top tins, you can bake these in them if they will hold ¼ cup of batter.) (BMOS Note: Since the use of cooking spray is discouraged, you may wish to use nonstick bakeware, muffin liners or cooking parchment to combat sticking issues.)

Separate egg whites into a large mixing bowl. Beat until light and frothy with a whisk. Add the remaining ingredients and whisk until well mixed. These come out real spicy. You can adjust the amounts of spices to your taste. Use a ¼ cup measuring cup and scoop out ¼ cup into each muffin well (or you can use a loaf pan, ramekins, etc.). Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until done and beginning to brown around the edges. I did 15 minutes and they were perfect.

Watch closely the first time. Let cool a few minutes, then turn out, using a fork to loosen along the edges if needed. Once cooled, these can be frozen in individual baggies. To reheat, just pop in the toaster. If frozen, I usually let them thaw overnight and then push the toaster button down twice to get them hot all the way through.

This will make 12 muffins, each containing a protein and carb serving.

Since I'm a baked goods lover, I have been playing with my recipes. I found one for gingerbread muffins and one for pineapple cake. Both are on the Provida website and are delicious!! The gingerbread ones are a nice change from my cinnamon ones. They taste like gingerbread cookies, but are healthy!

If you want the recipes, let me know and I can post/PM them!

This makes 6 servings, so I put it in a 9x13 and just cut it down the middle and into thirds. Then I box up each and put it in the fridge, 30-45 seconds in the microwave and its ready to go.

I had a piece this morning, before my workout. Let me tell you, this is the best banana cake/bread I've ever had. You will have absolutely no idea that it is MT friendly. So amazing! I will be making it every week! The berries make it so great, but I'm sure you could use raspberries, strawberries, apples, or any fruit you'd like. And play with the extracts.

If you cut it into 6 pieces:
2 oz protein A
1 c carb A
0.5 c fruit A
0.5 c fruit B

Half that for if you cut it into 12 pieces

Each sixth of the pan is about 350 calories, if you count. I made a SP recipe you can add to your tracker if you'd like.

Preworkout Banana Berry Cake (from Provida website)

I made it on SP: http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-deta
il.asp?recipe=1704291

3 c mashed bananas
1 c applesauce
3 c oats
12 egg whites
0.75 c splenda/xylitol
2 tsp vanilla
2 tsp almond extract
2 tsp baking powder
2 c berries

Mix all except berries. Then fold in berries. Bake in a 9x13 or bunt pan at 350 for 60 minutes.

If you count calories, its about 350. But its delicious and fits in the MT plan. A half piece can be breakfast for type C, just add 1 oz protein on the side.

Enjoy!

CHILI AND RICE

4 PKGS Jenny O’s Ground Turkey BREAST
4 medium minced onions
1/3-1/2 cup minced garlic or 2 whole cloves of garlic minced
5 Bell Peppers - I used 2 Red, 1 Orange, 1, Yellow, 1 Green Bell Pepper
2 Large cartons sliced white mushrooms, minced & steamed 6 minutes in microwave
3 Large Cans No Salt Added Tomato Paste (H.E.B. brand doesn’t say NSA but it is, read labels)
2 Large Cans NSA Diced Tomatoes
2 Cans Chopped Green Chilis (has some sodium but minor to recipe)
2 large cans Allen's Seasoned Pinto Beans with Vidalia Onions (These two cans have 740 mg sodium, so use this only when close to goal weight or on maintenance)


Brown and cook above ingredients

Add 2 small jars of McCormicks Chili powder (about 5 oz) or to taste
2 T. Oregano
2 T. Cumin
2 T. Black Pepper
2 T. Cajun Spices (see separate recipe below)
Enough Water to make chili like consistency as desired. I add about 1-2 Cups of H2O

Cool and put into 2 oz Protein Servings. Men can have 3-4 oz.
I contain 2 oz servings and give double to husband if he is really hungry that meal.
You can have less oz per serving but not more than they recommend. I use the ziplock 1/2 cup containers to store in freezer. Freezer bags are ok. You can serve this over Rice or baked potatoes or you can make Shepherd’s Pies from this, layering 2-4 oz of mashed potatoes (made with water only and seasoning), NSA Green Beans, Carrots, layer of chili (2-4 oz), topped with 2-4 oz mashed potatoes. Small serving sizes for women, large serving size for men. Some men prefer the smaller serving size so it is sometimes more logical to package them all up for the 2 oz protein serving and men can have up to two servings.

Hi Every one

I have a receipe that I will like to share with all A type as I usually make this on the week ends just to break up my normal routine and I like it.

Breakfast Smoothie for Type A
________________________________________
__________________________________

From member christamccoy I used to have a bunch of smoothie recipes that included cooked oatmeal, so I modified one of those and incorporated some of the smoothie recipes to come up with this very satisfying, albeit weird-sounding, recipe that is a suitable breakfast for Body Type A.


◦½ cup cooked oatmeal, cooled

◦1-2 drops vanilla extract

◦1-2 drops almond extract

◦8 oz Sunrise Classic Orange Crystal Light, prepared

◦7 ice cubes

◦4 tablespoons pasteurized egg whites (equivalent of 2 egg whites)
In blender or Magic Bullet, combine all ingredients, except egg whites, to desired consistency. Add egg whites last, to cut down on froth, and blend to incorporate.


Compatible with Body Type:
Breakfast A-C-D-E
Morning Snack C-E
Lunch A-B-C-D-E
Afternoon Snack B-C-D
Dinner A-B-C-D-E

This Recipe Contains: Protein A, Carb B




Maybe you haven't reached all your goals yet-but who has? And maybe you've made a few mistakes along the way-but who hasn't? You have every reason to feel proud of who you are. Notice your triumphs, big and small. There are so many.

Body type A or really any of them

Fish Dish

2-3 oz precooked fish...(left over fish)
2-3 Roma tomatoes
0.5 cup of precooked potatoes (cut into small cubes)
little celery
little chopped red bell pepper
little onion...can use onion flakes
black pepper

Warm all together on stove until the tomatoes break from skins

I really enjoyed this. Don't know if I was just hungry, but it was yummy.
Makes a nice large portion, but free to eat it all.

I made this and it was so good I ate it for breakfast the next day.
We will call it Stuffed Cabbage Unrolled
I put this in the crock pot, but can be cooked on top of stove. Just cook it as long or short as you wish.

1 pound ground white turkey
3 Roma tomatoes medium
1 onion
3 stalks celery chopped rather fine
1 bell pepper chopped
Mrs. Dash
clove garlic minced
sprig of fresh basil or dried
black pepper
1/4 tsp red pepper....this is important
1 cp cooked rice...may add more...this was all I had.
2 cp cooked cabbage

cook the ground turkey first with the onion, bell pepper, celery. Add all the other
spices at this time. When ready, add the cooked rice, tomatoes chopped up...unpeeled is fine,
and the cabbage.
Put cover on and let it go til you want it.

As far as servings, the rice is 4 and not sure how the turkey cooks out. The rest does
not count.

I make this at least once a week: Enjoy

Gazpacho:

1/2 cup diced tomato
1/2 cup fresh tomato juice (no salt added) or make your own by blending 1/2 cup tomato's
1cup diced cucumber,
1/2 cup diced onion
1/2 cup diced bell pepper
Rice vinegar
Fresh lemon juice
1-2 garlic cloves minced (to taste)
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro to taste (I love a lot)
1/8 cup Chopped Fresh dill or basil (or use 1/4 tsp of dried it won't change flavor much)
optional (finely chopped fresh Jalapeños to taste)


Mix tomatoes,cucumber,onion, garlic and bell pepper. Pour in tomato juice then add in 2 tbsp of vinegar, lemon juice, fresh cilantro, dill or basil and toss. Toss in jalapenos if desired. Chill and enjoy.

Note-
Some may like to quickly blend all ingredients in a blender to make a chunky chilled soup. I prefer mine very chunky and fresh, so I use salt free tomato juice for the "broth" and throw in the other chopped and dry ingredients then chill. Takes more time to eat and you can really taste the different ingredients. Hope you'll try this. It's really delicious. If you've been very good on your diet you can add a tablespoon of 0 fat greek yogurt and eat a bit with each spoonful. Yummmm!

One of the hardest decisions you'll make in life is whether to walk away or continue to try harder.

It's a fact Jack!

I did post a breakfast crepe that you might like to try and 'B" types can use it for breakfast and mmsnack. Other types are listed at the bottom for anyone who wants to try it.
I'm going to try it tomorrow before I go to clients home.

I'm glad your enjoying some of the recipes. I've been experimenting with recipes on line and making them fit the MT plan. Check this out!

Easy French Toast:

Ingredients: 1 apple, 2 egg whites, drop or two of vanilla, pinch of cinnamon & SF sweetner.

How to make:
Slice apple very thinly,"sauté" in PAM or non stick pan w/a little water, until apple is soft.

Beat the egg whites with a touch of vanilla, cinnamon and Truvia (Stevia)

Pour egg mixture over the hot apple and let set. Flip and set…Serve with a drizzle of
SF 0 cal syrup or use the brown sugar recipe below.
.
Custard like…and SO GOOD.
Tastes like French toast without the bread.

Jan, I thought I had all the ingredients on hand for your Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, but I was emoticon mistaken. I will gather them later this week and bake yours. For now, I am improvising with what is on hand here. They actually are very good! They are kind of a cake-like cookie. This is what I used:

Leeanna's Oatmeal Apple-Banana POP Cookies

1 Cup Pamela's Wheat-free, Gluten-free flour (Made from rice--
The baking powder and baking soda are in the mix)
1 1/2 C. Rolled Oats
1/2 C. Powdered Sweet Smart Xylitol (birch sugar)
1/3 C. Egg Whites (2 Large Egg Whites)
1/2 C. Mashed, Ripe Banana
1/2 C. Baked Apple (1/2 Large Apple baked with 1/2 teaspoon xylitol & cinnamon)
1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon Cocoa Chili Blend Seasoning

Mix well with wooden spoon. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheet sprayed lightly with Smart Balance Omega Cooking Spray. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. Makes 24 cookies.

Each Cookie contains: 54 Calories, less than 1 gr. fat, 56 mg sodium
Each Serving (4 cookies) 1/4 cup Oatmeal per serving:
216 Calories, less than 2.25 gr. fat, 224 mg sodium

**If you are on maintenance and like "chocolate chips" you can buy xylitol dark chocolate bars online from globalsweet.com which you can chop up 1/2 bar for each batch of cookies. There are only 105 cal., 6 g fat, and 5 mg of sodium to a 1/2 bar. Adding the chips would add about 35 cal, 1/2 g. fat, 0 sodium per 4 cookies (one serving).

***I was out of bananas tonight and made a batch with double baked apples, which i mashed up, instead of the bananas. I also added the global sweet brand "chocolate chips" for my DH. They turned out nice. Our 2 year old granddaughter loved them and they were way more healthy than the usual chocolate chip cookies she loves!!!

This is the batch recipe for Oatmeal Raisin Cookies of course you can omit the raisins for a more MT POP cookie. MT friendly - use chopped unsulfered dried apple as raisin substitute.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
Ingredients
• 1 cup oat flour
• 1/4 tsp baking soda
• 1/4 tsp baking powder
• 1 1/2 cups coaches oats or rolled oats
• 1/4 tsp cinnamon
• 1/4 tsp nutmeg
• 1/4 cup brown sugar (sugar free if possible)
• 1/4 cup SF white sugar (All natural Stevia like Truvia)
• 2 egg whites, lightly beaten
• 3/4 cup applesauce
• 1 tsp real vanilla extract (I use bourbon vanilla but tahitian or reg will work too)
• 1 cup raisins or cranberries

(I use applesauce for the binder but some like to use 1/2 butter and 1/2 applesauce or you can use baby food strained apples. Also if you don't use the baking soda because of the salt-use double baking powder (1/2 tsp). They might not rise as high but still just as good really, I've done them both ways and for guest l use the baking soda so they look nice.)

Instructions
Preheat oven to 375 F. mix together oat flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir in rolled oats. In a separate container, mix all other ingredients, sugars, applesauce, egg whites (a little at a time) and then the vanilla. Add this mixture to the other dry ingredients, mixing well. Drop teaspoon-sized balls of batter onto a non-stick cookie sheet. Bake 12-15 minutes or until the edges are slightly browned.

They will be best after cooling and refrigerating and the flavors have time to blend before serving.

Let me know what you think. They are closest to an on plan cookie I have been able to make.

Sugar Free Brown Sugar

1 cup artificial sweetener* (I use stevia but any that you like will work)
1/4 cup sugar-free/calorie free maple syrup (walden farms) or (smuckers makes a 20cal one)
Mix ingredients well.

Replaces 1 cup of regular brown sugar to be used when baking. Refrigerate any left over for your morning oatmeal.

*Use the type of sweetener that measures 1 cup to 1 cup of granulated sugar.

Tink I'm going to make your Pico De Gallo this weekend. I'll let you know how it goes! I usually buy mine so this is a treat. It looks MT friendly and the heat of the jalapeño is good for the metabolism.

Here is my recipe for the morning oatmeal cookie:
To make it truly MT friendly it would be without the raisins but you can use chopped unsulfered dried apple as a substitue. Tink look all the way to the end of recipe to find a Vegan egg white substitue for the recipe.

Makes one!

Here’s what to do:
Combine the follow ingredients in a microwave-safe bowl:
• 1/4 cup oats (I use coaches oats)
• 1/8 cup liquid egg whites
• 2 tsp SF brown sugar
• 2 tsp oat meal flour
• 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
• 1/4 tsp baking powder
• 1 tbsp cranberries or raisins
• Cinnamon to taste
Scrape batter off the sides of the bowl and flatten into a cookie shape.
Cook in microwave for 45 seconds.
Allow to cool and enjoy!
It satisfies my cookie cravings cranberries! Make a batch by multiplying
everything by 12. Freeze for a quick on the go meal.


Tink!!! Here is an easy egg white substitute to use for the cookie!
Vegan Egg White:
• 1 tsp chia flour (or 1 tsp ground flax or 1 tsp chia seeds you’ll ground yourself)
• 1/8th cup water

Directions: Mix water and chia together in a small bowl. Set aside for 2 minutes and whisk again for 20 seconds. The egg white consistency will form before your eyes! Note this recipe is the equivalent of replacing 2 egg whites.

Tink's Pico De Gallo
*I usually add pickled jalapenos (the ones we use for nachos) but I don't believe it's too plan friendly, but I had it while I was on the 6WBMO...what worked for me, might not work for others so please use discretion.

You can also play around with the ingredients, to your preference, this just what I do to make it.

1 large tomato or 2 smalls ones
1/2 a cup of finely chopped and diced cabbage
1 garlic clove
1/2 tsp of cumin
1 seeded and chopped jalapeno (optional)
juice of 1/2 a lime
chopped red onion (as much as you prefer)
finely chopped cilantro (as much as you prefer)
pinch of pepper

chop and dice tomatoes, remove seeds if you desire...add all ingredients together and incorporate well. I like to smash the tomatoes a bit to help them release their juices.
Put it a tupperware container, let sit in the fridge for a couple of hours to let the flavors marry.

JAN, thank you for sharing these recipes! I am definitely going to make these on maintenance. I am very excited about this recipe for quiche as my DH LOVES them. I am wondering if it would change the flavor to add unsweetened applesauce instead of the EVOO??? Hummmm. Thank you again!!!

Vegan Spinach Mushroom Quiche 3 ways

(I don't make my own crust, I purchase deep dish frozen and pre-bake them)
or don't use crust for crustless, just be sure you put the crustless quiche in a shallow water bath while baking so the bottom doesn't burn while baking)

RecipeFor the crust: If you want to make it...
1/2 cup rolled oats
3 tablespoons sesame seeds
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour or whole spelt flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly milled black pepper
1/3 cup unflavored soy milk or water
1/3 cup light sesame oil or pure olive oil plus more for brushing the pan


THE FILLING:
7 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 cup finely diced onion
10 ounces white button mushrooms, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons dry white wine or water
1 1/2 teaspoons coarse sea salt
3 garlic cloves, slice crosswise into 1/8-inch rounds
10 to 12 fresh basil leaves, chopped
1/2 teaspoon finely chopped fresh thyme leaves
Pinch hot red pepper flakes
1 pound firm tofu, rinsed and patted dry
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
2 pounds fresh spinach
Paprika for dusting

1. Preheat the oven to 350.

2. MAKE THE CRUST,or bake your pre-made deep dish.
Spread the oats and sesame seeds on a baking sheet and toast in the oven for 8 minutes.
3. Transfer the toasted oats and sesame seeds to the bowl of a food processor fitted with a metal blade. Add the flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper, and process until the oats are finely ground.
4. In a medium bowl, whisk together the soy milk and oil. Using a wooden spoon, mix in the dry ingredients to form a dough.
5. Lightly brush a 9-inch or 10-inch tart pan with oil. Put the dough in the tart pan. Place a piece of plastic wrap on the dough and press down evenly, making sure to fill in the fluted sides of the pan. Trim the tart of any excess dough and refrigerate while you make the filling.

6. TO MAKE THE FILLING, in a wide saute pan over medium heat, warm 2 tablespoons of the oil. Add the onion and mushroom, raise the heat to high, and saute for 10 to 12 minutes, stirring and shaking the pan until the vegetables are caramelized. Add the wine and scrape up any brown bits from the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Season with 1/2 teaspoon of the salt and continue to cook until dry. Using a rubber spatula, scrape the vegetables into a mixing bowl and set aside.
7. In a small saucepan over medium heat, warm the remaining 5 tablespoons of oil. Add the garlic, basil, thyme, and red pepper flakes. Simmer gently for 3 to 4 minutes or until the garlic is golden. Do not let the garlic brown or it will become bitter. With a rubber spatula, scrape the garlic oil into the bowl of a food processor.
8. Crumble the tofu into the bowl of the food processor. Add the lemon juice, vinegar, and remaining 1 teaspoon of salt and puree until smooth. With a rubber spatula, scrape the puree into the mushroom-onion mixture.
9. Remove and discard the tough stems of the spinach. Wash the leaves in a large bowl with several changes of cold water. Transfer the spinach to a pot and cooke, covered, over high heat for several minutes, just until wilted. Drain in a colander and rinse under cold water to arrest the cooking. Drain well and squeeze dry. Transfer the spinach to a cutting board and chop fine. Add the spinach to the rest of the filling and stir well to combine.
10. Fill the tart shell with the tofu and vegetable mixture and smooth the top with the back of a spoon. Dust with Paprika. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes,until firm.
11.Let the tart cool for 8 to 10 minutes before slicing and serving.
Yield: 4 to 6 servings

Also, Chickpeas are a Carb C on the list. Unless you are vegetarian, these should be left for Living Lean Phase.

Just as an FYI, below is what I found on the www.Provida.com site:

Re: Chickpeas
What helps to keep in mind is that MT did years of research to determine which foods work best for which body types when in the reduction phase. One of the foods that he learned was that legumes (beans), although healthy and nutritious, were one of those foods that doesn't help the body shed excess weight during the reduction phase. They are fine to have once you are in the maintenance phase. So, keep that recipe around for when you are Living Lean.

I wonder if one can in an entire recipe will make that much of a difference? Who is the "guinea pig" going to be???? Any takers??? PG, let us know if this sabbotages you or if you still lose weight with it. I hope it is the later coz I love chickpeas myself!

I need to get busy trying these new recipes! yummy. Thanks!

PG: Your chicken dish sounds wonderful. I only use chicken breasts so I'm going to experiment with yours. Truthfully I hate to cook (but obviously love to eat) so I'm always looking for the easiest way out of the kitchen. I grill my meats and vegetables (in a grill wok) almost exclusively. But I love slow cooked meats with spices, so I came up with a way to bake meals (mostly chicken but I do roasts the same way).

I'm going to try it with your recipe using skinnless chicken breasts, I don't eat any other parts of the chicken and don't like the skin...(I know, for most people that's a treat) ....anyway...I'll spray them with olive oil...then lightly brown the chicken, then add the onion and garlic to brown slightly... next the spices and tomatoes will be tossed in to heat and I'll transfer everything to a glass baking dish. I'll Bake for 1hr 15min...at 350 degrees (with tented foil over top.) It won't be as rich and tasty as yours PG, but it will be more to plan, without taking away flavor I hope.

How does that sound Heather? And the answer is NO , because you'll want to brown the chicken this time and you'll have to use fresh or thawed chicken. Any other suggestions let us know. This could be our new yummy favorite when we're have guests or just want something special. I wonder if this would freeze? That would be awesome.

I used to have an amazing clay pot, you soaked before baking...my mother's... but I broke it years ago and never got another one. I will have to check for one online.

PG: thanks for the recipe can't wait to try it. emoticon

If you can find some lower sodium bacon, it would be even better - I use Oscar Meyer Low Sodium. OR you could try cutting one slice of bacon in 1/2 and using only 1/2 for each.

Jan - I tried your recipe for Tarragon Balsamic Chicken last night. I left out the balsamic because I'm not fond of it, I'm a rather picky eater. But the chicken was delicious, even my DH liked it. I love the idea of using the leftover veggies in an omelet. Great idea!

Thank you Jan, I SO need to make new things for the freezer. My DH and I stood with the freezer door open last night and as usual, said, well, we can have baked bbq or lemon chicken, chicken and veggie and rice soup, bbq pork and sweet potato, turkey patties, or go out for a salad....hummmmm....and we broke down laughing. It really was funny. I want to surprise him with something new next time we open the freezer together!

My first recipe: I reworked one I found on providia that you use a skillet to brown chicken first but that's too much work for me. Play around with baked chicken...I make it all the time... sometimes I just use nsa broth, pepper and whatever veggies I have along with any spices and herbs I feel like using. Set timer for 1hr Bake at 350F and presto. it's done.
Best thing is, you can use frozen chicken breasts, you just bake for 2hrs, exactly the same.

Simple Tarragon Balsamic Chicken

o 4 Chicken Breasts (about 1 lb)
o 4 teaspoons dry Tarragon
o ½ teaspoon black pepper
o ¼ cup nsa chicken Broth
o 8 oz whole mushrooms
o 6 cloves garlic minced
o 1 onion sliced medium
o 1 cup grape tomatoes or Dried Tomatoes (not in oil)
o 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar

Place chicken in large casserole dish pour chicken broth over chicken and ½ the balsamic vinegar, rub garlic on chicken breasts, Layer onions slices, mushrooms, Then sprinkle with Tarragon and pepper.

Place tin foil loosely over chicken breasts leaving room around edge for steam to escape. Roast in oven at 350 F for about 1/2 hour, add tomatoes and slowly pour remaining balsamic vinegar.cook for another 1/2 or until juices run clear when chicken is pierced and no longer pink inside. If you like a little more browning you can take off tin foil 15min prior to finishing.

(if you use frozen chicken breasts cook for 2hrs (set timer for 1hr 15min) then add veggies and remaining vinegar for additional 45mins. It's perfect everytime and you have chicken for the week. If DH and Doggies don't get to it before you do... Serve with brown rice. I use any leftover veggies in an eggwhite omelete the next day, since they won't hold up for a week.

Don't want to scroll all the way down this post, so I am adding a link to my Cauliflower Curry - it's so yummy I've eaten it cold (really!) Um, this time I'm going to omit the cabbage and start off with some beef stew meat - using the spices and making it tender first, then once the meat is tender I'll add the cauliflower/tomato/onion. I bought extra lean stew meat - so it should be a nice boost of protein in the veggies :)

I've got to get some low sodium bacon so I can write the recipe and get the nutrition info for the poppers - we want to make them this Sunday. Never did make the potato skins and now I'm grounded from experimenting for a while (self-grounded). Maybe in a couple weeks!

I read that on the provida site somewhere, something about some people have more trouble metabolizing pasta - even when it's made from rice. When I make spaghetti, I usually have it twice in a week. Just pay attention to how your body reacts.

I've found that unsweetened/organic/plain applesauce goes GREAT in oatmeal with some cinnamon and xylitol. I was adding cut up peaches a LOT when they were in season (very good), but cutting up apples I don't like as much and I have YET to bake them as our wonderful leader does!

Wow, thanks for the new recipes Megan! Glad you like to cook. When I get to maintenance, I am going to bake your cookies, but I will need to use Almond butter (allergic to peanuts :-( ) Keep those recipes coming; can't have too many! emoticon

So.. I like to cook.. and I'm pretty good at it, so if all these recipies are too much, let me know.

MOP Banana/Oatmeal/Chocolate/Peanut Butter Cookies

3 medium ripe bananas, peeled and mashed
1 cup rolled or quick oats
1 cup oat flour (can be made by putting oatmeal in a bender and grinding to powder)
1/3 cup peanut butter***
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp imitation butter flavor- optional

Variation: Add 1/4 cup unsweeted coco powder and 3-4 TBS Splenda to taste

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix to combine. Let sit 30 minutes.

Drop by teaspoonfuls on cookie sheet and bake in a preheated 350 F oven for 15-20 minutes until lightly golden (or slightly firm for the chocolate cookies).

***Peanut butter is not on plan, BUT it substitutes for butter. I used Smuckers Organic Natural Peanut butter. It has very low sodium and NO sugar. When you buy the jar, pour all but maybe 1 TBS of the oil out before you stir it, this helps eliminate the fat without loosing the consistency and the naturally occurring oils needed for baking.

Yummy!! You beat me over here :) I'm going to try the dressing but use xylitol instead to sweeten it. It's natural and tastes just like sugar.

The squash sounds good. I'll have to try that too.

So I have a few simple recipes that I have found already.

Pom-Raz Salad Dressing

1 Lg. Pomegranate (peeled of course)
1 12oz bag No Sugar Added Frozen Raspberries (Great Value at Walmart)
1/3 cup Pompien Pomegranate infused Red wine vinegar
2 TBS Splenda

Blend Pomegranate and Raspberries first, add in Vinegar, then 2 TBS Splenda, or to taste.


Butternut Squash (This is under Carbs) This is an AWESOME sweet treat!
12 oz peeled and diced Butternut Squash
1/2 cup water
1/4 tsp imitation butter flavor
2 TBS splenda
Cinnamon to taste

Boil diced Butternut squash in 1/2 cup water until tender. Strain and rinse (this removes the film). Mash in a bowel, and add imitation butter flavor, splenda and cinnamon to taste.

We bought some Swai fish and I remembered finding this recipe on the Provida that is GREAT with white fish - so - here you go another KEEPER. Great flavor and lots of protein!

Tasty Tilapia
________________________________________
_____________
From member PyeWacket19 I usually don't measure my spices, I eyeball it, so feel free to adjust the amounts to your taste. Also I usually triple this recipe and freeze in 2 oz packs: great cold on top of a salad of cukes, red pepper, tomatoes and red onions, etc; or hot as part of a meal. The Chablis and the white balsamic vinegar give it a wonderful taste.

◦1 lb tilapia or other delicate mild white fish

◦½ cup Chablis wine (works with any white or rosé wine)
◦3 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar (BMOS Note: Trader Joe's Market and Whole Foods are two of the stores offering this product.)

◦½ teaspoon dried dill

◦¼ teaspoon minced lemon peel, or you can use minced orange peel or some of both (Penzey's brand used)

◦sprinkling hot paprika (I buy Hungarian by Szeged. This brand of paprika has a distinct wonderful taste.)

◦½ teaspoon Mrs. Dash Lemon Pepper
Mix all the ingredients except the tilapia in a bowl. Heat a heavy non-stick pan. Add tilapia. You may have to add a drizzle of water occasionally as you cook, but very little at a time (less than a tablespoon) After edges on tilapia turn white, turn tilapia over. Cook a minute on this side than add contents of bowl. Cook fairly high till liquid evaporates into the tilapia.
Near end of cooking lower heat and add a drizzle of water so fish picks up the brownings from the pan.

YOU'RE FINISHED......ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey I've been making "yogurt cheese" since I got on SP - but it's just taking plain yogurt and straining through a cheese cloth. Add some garlic/jalapeno and it's a dip!! Anyone where yogurt fits in on this plan? (quantity/frequency?)

I never noticed if it takes longer depending on the %. You do have to watch the pot though because you want to catch it just before the boil breaks the film that forms on top of the milk. I don't have any use for the whey, yet. Let me know if you discover one. I do love the way the "cream cheese" tastes and spreads if you happen to leave it drain a little too long over the cheesecloth. I love the natural taste of this and don't add any vanilla or flavorings but you certainly can do that if you want. Hope it turns out good for you. I had to throw away my first pot because I forgot to turn on the oven light overnight. Let me know how it turns out for you!

Wow, that yogurt recipe sounds really easy and I love yogurt. Not loaded with all that extra sodium either. I am assuming it will take longer with 1% than 2% and so on because of the fat content of the milk. How much yogurt will a gallon of milk make? Do you do anything with the whey left over? Sorry about all the questions but I'm excited about making some tomorrow.

Thanks Dale! Can't wait to try that one! My favorite type of food is Mediterranean.

HOMEMADE GREEK YOGURT

One gallon or less of whole, 2 % or 1 % milk
Heat on med/hi just until you can see a simmer forming underneath the "skin" that the milk forms. Turn off heat. Remove from burner. Let it sit until cool enough to give to a toddler to drink. Add in about 1/2 cup of left over yogurt (you can use store bought until you get a from scratch starter). Turn on oven LIGHT (NOT the oven temperature). Cover the pot of milk with a heavy towel (use a bath towel). Leave in oven overnight. Check in the morning for consistency. If it is not yogurt consistency (still too runny), put a cheese cloth or cotton cloth in the bottom of a big strainer, set the strainer over a big pot, pour the milk/yogurt into the strainer and place in frig. Check often for consistency. If you leave it drain too long, you will have cream cheese LOL. Store in small container and eat or share with friends. If you want, you can add in fruit, but I love it plain and it would go great on DALE'S Hummus and tortilla recipe!!!

Hi guys, here is the Asparagus-Avocado Hummus Recipe that LA wanted me to post. I know that some of you can't have dried beans yet, but it is a really good recipe and you can always fix it to take to a friend until you can. Besides, it is very healthy.

Asparagus-Avocado Hummus
1 1/2 cups Garbanzo beans- I used dried and cooked up my own so no added sodium.
2 cups Asparagus- I used fresh and steamed them, so no added sodium.
1 cup ripe Avocado
.5 cup Plain low fat yogurt- you can use no fat yogurt if you want, it's mostly to get a smooth texture.
Juice of 1 lime or lemon
1 Tbls. olive oil
1-2 tsp. minced garlic
Black Pepper

I put my garbanzo beans in the processor and processed first so I could get an accurate measurement.
Then just throw everything in the processor and process until it's the consistency you like. I actually added some low sodium chicken stock in mine to get a really smooth texture because my DH doesn't like the texture of most hummus dips.But you could add the water from cooking the beans or anything else that's liquid.
You can really spice it up or down, it's such a versatile dip. I may even add some salsa next time I make it. OR maybe some hot peppers.......hmmm
I figured 16 servings of 4 tbls. each. That is just about what it takes for my corn tortillas chip allowance.
Here is the nutrient breakdown:
Calories 88.4
Fat 3.9
Protein 3.6
Carbs 10.4
fiber 3.5
sodium 10.6
potassium 133.2

enjoy!

You cannot taste the spinach in the salsa, but it does turn it green if you use too much...however, the taste is still good, so if you can stand green salsa in color, the taste is fine! I am going to do your fajitas! Wow, my DH will think he has gone to food heaven!

Nice! So, dogs like egg yolks? My DH has a dog, and I like that idea so much better than chucking them down the disposal :)

LA can you taste the spinach in the salsa? That would be a great way to sneak in more veggies - thanks!

Oh and my FAVORITE squash is Spaghetti Squash!

Microwave several minutes until soft enough to cut in half--these babies will break a sharp knife, so don't even try cutting it without softening it.

Scoop out seeds just like a honeydew melon.

Place pulp side down on a Non-Stick Foil sheet in a baking dish.

Bake 350 for about 1 hour. Poke with a fork for doneness.

Use a fork to scrape out the "noodles". They look almost just like Spaghetti noodles and taste BETTER than noodles when you put Spaghetti Sauce on top. Yummy!

FOUND IT!!! LOL Here are a few staple recipes I keep on hand AT ALL TIMES:

TURKEY BURGER RECIPE--Makes 50 “Burgers”, or 2 oz Protein each

5 PKGS Jenny O’s Ground Turkey BREAST
2 Large Cartons of Sliced white Mushrooms, steamed in microwave 6 minutes high
1/3-1/2 Cup, or as desired, minced garlic
1/2-1 whole Red Bell Pepper, minced, OPTIONAL
1-3 medium or small White Onions, as desired, minced (I use 3 medium)
2 eggs
1/3 bottle of Mrs. Dash Mesquite Grill MARINADE (use more if consistency allows)
1 Tablespoon No Salt Seasoning
1 Tablespoon Black Pepper

Mix all ingredients well. Form into 52 Burgers. Place on Non-Stick Foil lined pans with sides. Bake in 350 degree oven for about 40 minutes. Flip over and back additional 20 minutes or until done. Let cool completely. Put 1-2 burgers (2-4 oz. protein), into individual snack baggies, depending on your Body Type Male or Female. Put individual baggies into Gallon Ziplock for Freezer bags and put into freezer. You can remove them as needed. They defrost in microwave in one minute.



BAR-B-QUED CHICKEN

Large Package of Chicken Strips (Use the FRESH chicken strips--most frozen bags contain SODIUM)

Lay Chicken strips on a NON-STICK Foil Lined baking pan. Brush MRS. DASH MESQUITE GRILL MARINADE over the top of strips and be generous. Season with No Salt and Black Pepper. Bake at 350 for about 1 hour. Check for doneness around 45 minutes.

Cool and put two strips (about 2 oz) per snack baggie and put in Zip Lock Gallon Freezer bag and label.

LEMON HERBED CHICKEN

Large Package of Chicken Strips (Use the FRESH Chicken Strips--most Frozen Bags of Chicken contain SODIUM)

Lay Chicken Strips on a NON-STICK Foil-lined baking pan. Brush MRS DASH LEMON HERB MARINADE over the tops of strips and be generous. Season with No Salt and Black Pepper. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes -1 hour. 2 Strips per snack baggie when cool
and Put individual baggies into Gallon Ziplock for Freezer bags and put into freezer. You can remove them as needed. They defrost in microwave in one minute.


CHILI RECIPE:
SHEPHERD’S PIE......CHILI AND RICE..... CHILI AND BAKED POTATO

3 PKGS Jenny O’s Ground Turkey BREAST
4 small or 2 medium minced onions
1/3-1/2 cup minced garlic
1 minced Red Bell Pepper
2 Large cartons sliced white mushrooms, steamed 6 minutes
2 cans No Salt Added Tomato Paste (H.E.B. brand doesn’t say NSA but it is, read labels)
2 cans NSA Diced Tomatoes
2 Cans Chopped Green Chilis (has some sodium but minor to recipe)

Brown and cook above ingredients

Add 1/4 cup Chili powder or to taste
2 T. Oregano
2 T. Cumin
2 T. No Salt
2 T. Black Pepper
Enough Water to make chili like consistency as desired. I add about 1-2 Cups of H2O

Cool and put into 2 oz Protein Servings. Men can have 3-4 oz.
I contain 2 oz servings and give double to husband if he is really hungry that meal.
You can have less oz per serving but not more than they recommend. I use the ziplock 1/2 cup containers to store in freezer. Freezer bags are ok. You can serve this over Rice or baked potatoes or you can make Shepherd’s Pies from this, layering 2-4 oz of mashed potatoes (made with water only and seasoning), NSA Green Beans, Carrots, layer of chili (2-4 oz), topped with 2-4 oz mashed potatoes. Small serving sizes for women, large serving size for men. Some men prefer the smaller serving size so it is sometimes more logical to package them all up for the 2 oz protein serving and men can have up to two servings.














SPAGHETTI SAUCE (Serve over Spaghetti Squash or Rice Noodles)

3 PKGS Jenny O’s Ground Turkey Breast
4 small minced onions
1/2 C. Minced Garlic
1 Red Bell Pepper Minced
2 Large Pkgs. sliced white mushrooms steamed 6 min.
4 small NSA Tomatoe Paste
2 Cans NSA Diced tomatoes
Italian Seasoning
Basil
No Salt
Pepper

Cook Turkey, onions, garlic til turkey is done. Add rest of ingredients.
Add about 2 large cans of water or til the consistency is like you want.

Divide into 26 two ounce servings. (Women can have 1 serving and Men can have 1-2 Servings). Store in Ziplock containers or baggies and put in Gallon Ziplocks into freezer.



SALSA
Use Salsa to flavor Egg White Omelets or other dishes. I Use 1/2 part Salsa to 1/2 part Balsamic Vinegar to make Salad Dressing

In Blender, put Two 12 oz bags of Cherry Tomatoes in and blend. Add 2 cups Baby Spinach, 2 Small Onions, 1/3 C. Garlic, 1/2 cup or as desired of fresh Cilantro, and add to taste: Cumin, Chili Powder, No Salt, Black Pepper, and Oregano. Start with 1 Teaspoon of each and taste. I use a lot of Chili Powder and Cumin but I like those flavors.

Store in Glass Jar in refrigerator, or in Freezer containers.
I make a large shaker bottle of the 1/2 Salsa to 1/2 Balsamic for my salad dressing.




BOILED EGGS

I BOIL 30 eggs at a time. Separate yolks into baggies for dogs. Put 3 - 4 Egg Whites per Snack Baggie into Refrigerator. If you rinse the whites with water after taking out the yolks and dry the whites with paper towel very well before storing them, they will keep much longer.

The Tasty Onions sound great - I love onions :)

Dale I just re-ordered Mr. Spice stuff today!

If you call them to order 3 bottles, shipping is free so you can get a 4th for the price of shipping!! The number is 1-800-Sauce-4-u

I'm going to try the tangy bang and honey bbq. I'm reordering the hot wing sauce x 2 - it's great on boneless/skinless chicken breast masquerading as wings!!!

Tasty Onions

Add these to any protein or carb to give a little tang.

Sweet Vidalia Onions or Red Onion sliced thin.
Lime juice

In a nonstick pan add water to cover bottom, put sliced onions and sprinkle lime juice over top. Cook until onions are see through (constantly moving or they'll dry out)You can add more water if you need it. Tastes really good on top of Tilapia or Baked Swai and dry no flavor potatoes...

This isn't a recipe but it is a few things that I have found that really make staying on the plan easier.
1. Also Salt, tastes more like real salt than anything I have tried. Find it at Food Lion or the web site. Just don't taste it straight out of the shaker first. It's much better on cooked food.
2. Mr. Spice Organic sodium free sauces and marinades. Can be found at Winn Dixie or order off the web site.
3. Apple Butter, has corn syrup but no sodium or fat. I use instead of butter, margarine, or spreads.
4. Bragg Liquid Aminos- ingredients are vegetable protein from soybeans and purified water. Use like soy sauce. Only has natural sodium and no sugars.
These are a few of my favorite things.

Healthy Spaghetti Sauce!

This is one of our favorites, and it freezes very well. It smells amazing too. Don't skip the wine - it's allowed to cook with and makes it truly Italian!

I've done all the portion/calculation too - it's on SP recipes

Great idea Heather. We need a recipe thread. It will benefit everyone. Good thinking. As far as squash goes, I like everything but zuchini. Butternut and acorn are my favorites. I'll check and see if I have any recipes that can be converted to the plan.

Share your favorites, and the ones that are NASTY so no one else has to suffer!!

I am looking for some good squash recipes on plan. I've never been a squash eater, and I am intrigued by all the varieties, it's so available and cheap. I've pretty much just roasted it with a little pepper on top. And my sauteed zuchini tastes miserable!
