Recipes I've Shared:

Shrimp and Vegies

This tastes like a dish made in a Chinese restaurant. It makes a little juice for some soup but unless you add more broth you won't get much soup divvying it up for 3.

Egg Salad

Red Onions, Celery and Basil make for a nice mix in with hard boiled eggs and and Hellman's with Olive Oil Mayonnaise.

Mock Meat Buritos by Drea

These are so delicious they truly have you thinking your eating meat. Even my cats were loving this stuff when I gave them some.

Drea's figure Friendly Baked Rice Pudding

This is my figure friendly version of a traditional Turkish Favorite.

Baked Rice Pudding By Drea

Just for the nutrition facts! This is a family recipe that my father made for us when he was alive. Other than for the addition of the extra Almond Milk I added to it since I should have made it with 3 cans of Evaporated milk and only originally used 2 12oz cans.

Shrimp, Cabage, Leeks, Carrots, Mushrooms & Water Chesnuts

I need to enter the nutrition facts but this stuff was really very yummy!

Ground Beef With Cabbage & Other Veggies in The Slow Cooker By Drea

I did not take this from a recipe, just put this soup together with ingredients I had left over after making a recipe from the 7 Day Cabbage Diet Soup I made earlier on in the week.

Cabbage Soup - SHD - 7 Day Diet Soup

The same recipe for the infamous 7 day diet Cabbage soups however I have added more veggies to make it more of a hearty soup than just soup.

Shrimp and Collard Greens By Drea

Okay so I never heard of it before but I was hungry at just after 6am because I just got off work and I have to eat because starving myself has proved to not be working for me. Collard greens are very low in calories and carbs per serving and I thought why the heck not. I had 3-3oz servings of pre-cooked shrimp that was frozen and I figured this was easy and all of it, the whole can of greens and all 3 servings of shrimp is under 300 Calories, has only 3grams of fat, 7 Carbs, a whopping 58grams of Protein and 7grams of Fiber to boot! It makes a huge portion for one and I am hoping after I eat it I the greens go right through me! I want to lose allot of weight between now and my next weigh in on New Years Day 2012! Not just that but it only took about 5 minutes to prepare and cook!

Dark Chockolate Dairy Free 45 calorie Per Serving Ice Cream

Okay everyone this is a figure friendly treat your sure to love. Its only 45.5 calories and 0.05 grams of fat, so adding in Almonds, Cashews, Pecans, Macadamia Nuts, Walnuts or other types of peanuts won't kill your figure with this great treat everyone is sure to love. You can have it over a Fiber One 90 Calorie brownie for an indulgent treat you will want to come kiss me for this recipe!!!

I use a Deni 540 Small 1.5 Quart ice Cream maker which uses a Container you freeze rather than one you need salt and all that.
Alternatively you can make this in your blender though it won't be as thick and frozen but still will make a nice cold frosty treat. You can also use the method of placing the ingredients into a small zip-lock baggie inside of a larger Zip-Lock Baggie with salt and ice in it and you get your shake on LOL

Colorful Pepper Shrimp With Mushrooms and Scallions

Just as the title implies. Small salad pepers in red, yellow and orange cut into rings with Scallions and sliced white raw mushrooms sauteed with pre-cooked frozen shrimp that has been cleaned, De-veined, and tails taken off ready to just thaw and eat or thaw, heat and eat! Yummy!!!

Cabbage Kielbasa Onions & Noodles Drea Style

This is a dish I learned to make many years ago when I lived in Connecticut. I had a roommate "Cindy" who said it was a food her Grandma used to make and of course bringing back the familaraity of home and Grandma you know it was comfort food to her. For me it contains noodles "Pasta" which is always comfort food to me. The cabbage makes it look like there is allot of food on your plate and mixed with noodles even more. You probably would not be able to finish a single serving in just 1 sitting.

Chicken, Shrimp and Vegetable Shish Kabobs Over Brown Rice

These shish kabobs are surely a hit for any gathering, party, lunch or any occasion. My family and I enjoyed them for dinner over brown rice. Packed full of Healthy Goodness at almost 46 Grams of Protein and really low in fat and carbs these are sure to be liked by all and can be made in an indoor grill pan.

Pear, Strawberry, Blueberry, Banana, Fat Free Milk Smoothie

Another yummy smoothie I made to use up a pear that was on its way to seeing better days. I figured what else could I put into the smoothie and needed some frozen fruit to make it more cool and smoothie like so I added in the Strawberries and blueberries. Someone left the freezer open a bit and those strawberries were defrosted so I used what was left in the bag which was 2 cups. So here it was and man was it delicious!

Polish Kielbasa and Sauerkraut (High Sodium Dish)

A delicious take on a Hungarian dish that is easy to make, contains only two (2) ingredients, is quick to prepare and cook and costs less than $5 to make and will feed up to 7.
*This dish is high in Sodium! Can be a nice side dish or eaten itself as a complete main dish meal.

Pepper Shrimp With Mushrooms and Onions

This dish was delicious. Would have been good over rice or pasta, however it was yummy all on its own.

Pumpkin Banana Fat Free Smoothie By Drea

A great way to use up that extra canned pumpkin you may have left over from another recipe as I did. Not for those who are watching their sugar or carb intake. This one is almost 10g protein but has loads of carbs and sugars. With that said I would not suggest having this one all the time but certainly a great one for those who work out hard and need that cook energy drink that is quick and easy to make and take on the go.

Talapia Fish and Shrimp Civiche With Mango Drea Style

This is delicious!

I use my Mango Salsa Recipe with the added juice from 1 Extra Lime (approximately 2 Tbsp) which I use to soak the Raw "Talapia" Fish in which allows it cook basically.

Can be a refreshingly cool snack, or terrific side dish/salad.

Slow Cooker Chicken Soup-O-Veggies

A wonderful delicious smoothie Recipe that makes 2 Hearty 16 Oz (2 Cup) Servings or 4 Yummy 8oz (1 Cup) Treats or 1 - 16oz, 1 - 8oz smoothies and 8 1oz Frozen Freezer Pops. Great for a meal, snack, and or deserts.

Vegetable Stuffing With Apples Drea Style

A nice side dish for holiday feast that is figure friendly. I think it contained way to much mushrooms and onions and I would have liked if it was more together. Perhaps adding an egg or even some egg whites or egg substitute would have made this dish better than it was. My Family loved it so I am sharing it.

Mock Candied Yams With Butternut Squash, Apples & Pineapple

This was my take on candied sweet potatoes. I personally did not think it was the best I could do and perhaps its because I love candied yams so much that I really was looking for a taste and texture I just was not getting from this dish. My husband who does not like sweet potatoes loved it and ate the whole serving I gave him and my mother also loved and complimented this dish. I am going to bake it more than I had and see if that helps the texture.

Green Bean Cassarole Drea Style

My take on the traditional recipe to enjoy for the holiday feasts, or served for lunch or dinner no matter the occasion.

Polish Stuffed Cabbage Drea Style

This is a recipe that was my grandmother's. I recently saw it on a fellow YouTuber's video though it was missing the egg and had beef and pork which is the original version of this dish. I substitute beef and pork with 99% Lean Ground Turkey and I use V* Vegetable Juice instead of Tomato Juice though its basically the same other than for 7 added veggies that plain tomato juice does not have and I used Low Sodium as well as the added salt to the stuffing mix is Sea Salt. I was going to add in Spinach and Carrots into the stuffing but instead this time around I am going to use only the Large Outside leaves from 2 Cabbages and use the smaller leaves from the inside to chop or shred up and mix into the stuffing for the cabbages so that I use less ground turkey and still have enough filling to make at least 25-30 Cabbage rolls depending on cabbage - with Approximately 4-5 Tbsp of Filling in each..

Your going to love this recipe. I just threw it together using some sliced 40 calorie per slice bread that was not as fresh as my family or I desire for sandwiches. I wanted to make a healthy treat that was no t yogurt but did not have much more Calories or fat than yogurt and I pretty much did it!

Super Broiled Grouper Drea's Style

A lite healthy dinner which can be eaten with potato, rice, pasta, with just vegetables or just by itself.
