Recipes I've Shared:

Meat Balls - The Best Ever!!! (6 meatballs)

A family favorite for generations!

Spaghetti-squash and cabbage Pad Thai

For even lower carbs and calories, substitute shirataki noodles for the spaghetti squash. Then you can subtract 10 grams of carbohydrates and 40 calories from the nutrition information.

Chocolate-Hemp Drink

Low carb AND vegan!

Green Beans & Tomatoes

(Hot side dish or casserole)

Chili con Broccoli

This soup is 12 carbs per serving. If you would prefer 9 carbs per serving leave out the tomatoes. Canned tomatoes are surprisingly high in carbs. Chili powder also is surprisingly high in carbs for a spice - 4 carbs per tablespoon!

Low Fat Ranch for a party

Makes a quart of homemade ranch dip!

Crunchy Tuna Salad

Wonderful for a low carb lunch

Vegan Mayonnaise made with ground flaxeed

For this recipe you need a wide-mouth pint-size jar and an immersion blender

Cottage cheese pancakes with coconut flour

Gluten free, low carb (6.8 net carbs per serving)

Caesar Salad Dressing (and salad suggestion)

Sugar-free, home-made dressing. Less than 1 carb per serving. The nutrition info may be a little off because you drain the anchovies - not all the oil they are packed in goes in the dressing.

Shake, Dr. Turner's Anti-aging Power Shake

adapted from Women's World magazine, 2/3/2014 issue

Shrimp Fried 'Rice' (cauliflower)

Calorie counts do not include the coconut oil, because coconut oil is metabolized differently in the body than regular oil. As long as I use only 1 tablespoon in this recipe I don't count it for the calories for the 5:2 Diet fast day

Grain-free Bread (Low Carb)

About 2 grams new carbs per slice

Ruth's Tomato Ketchup (Catsup)

No high fructose corn syrup!

This can be vegan if you use vegan protein powder. This has 4 net carbs per serving

Flaxseed Chia Waffles

2 net carbs for one large waffle

Cheese Biscuits, Low Carb

2 net carbs per biscuit

Flaxseed Mayonnaise-in-a-Jar*

A vegan mayonnaise without all the chemicals

Warming Protein Drink

Tired of the cold sweet shakes? Here's a warm savory way to get your protein.

This is equivalent to 1 protein serving and about .5 serving of fruit (but you can throw in your entire serving if you like) on P2 of the HCG protocol.

HCG appropriate for P2

Citrus Fish

HCG appropriate

Cocktail Sauce

HCG appropriate - Makes about 1 cup (without added water) - so one serving would be 1/3 cup

Dijon Vinaigrette

My favorite salad dressing - sugar free and full of healthy fat. Use it also to baste a salmon fillet before broiling!

Lobster Salad (for the HCG diet)

Enjoy on its own or over your choice of greens.

Roasted Radishes with Rosemary

Note to HCG'ers: This is for P2. For P3, omit the broth. Put the radishes in a plastic bag with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Shake in some rosemary, salt, and pepper. Close bag and mush around and pour into a parchment lined baking dish.

HCG Green Smoothie

This is a fat free smoothie. To add some natural fat, blend in 1/4 avocado (count the nutritional info separately - it isn't included in this recipe)

Steak and Radish Hash

Who knew that radishes make such good potato substitutes?!

Green Smoothie

As long as I add the avocado, I find I don't need sweetener. The creaminess of the avocado smooths out the flavors.

Garlic Parmesan Flax Seed Crackers

Nutrition info is for 1/8 recipe

I came up with this recipe because I always thought that a can of baked beans was too soupy.

Sesame Lemon Salad Dressing

Easy, very tasty salad dressing.

Thai Coconut Ice Cream

A delicious non-dairy ice cream without the food additives found in commercial ice creams. Unfortunately high in calories. Best to use only a little (perhaps a half serving) to top berries or fruit. This recipe needs to be made over to lower the calories. Use an ice cream maker for this recipe.

Hummus with black olives

This contains olives rather than olive oil to fit in with Orthodox Lenten food. It gives the hummus an interesting speckled effect. This recipe needs a food processor.

Cauliflower Salad

Adapted from the More with Less Cookbook

Borscht! (Vegan)

Beautiful ruby-red, low-calorie soup! It helps if you have a food processor to make this.


Very Good (15 ratings)
