Recipes I've Shared:

Roast Veggie&Chicken Pockets

Make over from a recipe I saw on FB. I cut out the bacon and butter, replaced it with more veggies and extra virgin olive oil. For just three servings they were 362 calories EACH and well over 1854 g of sodium with this version you are getting many more veggies, and it cuts the calories to 17 and only 74 g of sodium per serving.

Becky's Roasted Sweet Potato's

I am not a huge fan of ginger so I used less of it. It called for a "pinch" but I just used about 1/16th of a tsp

Canadian Bacon Muffin Tin Omelette

Just added canadian bacon and egg mixture to the base.

Cheesey 7 Vegetable casserole

Had all these fresh veggies, and saw similar recipes so made my own flair :) use less red pepper if it's too much "kick"

Chicken Italian Sausage with Veggies and Pasta

have been playing around with these ingredients and this was the final recipe

Becky's Red Hot Lime Marinade

I was looking for a lime based marinade recipe, but didn't like any of the ones I saw so made my own up. Best thing ZERO calories!! May need to reduce the amount of red pepper for my taste

Becky's Protein Shake Base Mixture

This is the base mixture for all my protein smoothies. I alternate the things I add such as yogurt, frozen or fresh fruit. and sometimes Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa Mix. With this mixture I always know where I am starting from calorie wise Sometimes I use a different almond milk too changing the nutrition value. This base stays the same however.

Peach and cream Protein smoothie

I ran out of my almond milk so did 1/2 of that and 1/2 whole milk with vitamin d, also usually use 1 c. of fruit but this was the last of the bag.

An easy alternative great for breakfast or dessert

Experimenting with different combinations and think I found my favorite :)

Creamy Orange Banana Protein smoothie

I am always low on potassium though added these together to get some more

Becky's Over The Stove Cabbage and Potato Soup

quick and easy, the bacon is really used just for flavoring, wasn't sure how to calculate
I LOVE cabbage as it is soo low in calories but so filling and seems to last forever

Extra Thick Tropical Fruit

I threw tropical in it b/c I add frozen banana and pineapple. Very easy to make, Quick way to get in those servings of fruit It comes out so thick (almost like ice cream) you need a spoon, And the fruit pieces don't all "chop up" the way I do it you can always blend more or less for your personal likes

Chock Full of Veggies I add some crushed red pepper , black pepper and cumin to give it a little "Kick" you can add or delete spices to your taste

I tried McDonalds Fruit Topped oatmeal I decided to try my own version. Makes 6 servings 1 Tbs. each (I also add apples, blueberry's etc. that I calculate separately)

Hidden Valley Ranch, Garden Green Onion and Spinach Dip

I couldn't find the Knorr Vegetable Dip for the Spinach dip so tried to make my own version. The Spinach makes the dip very watery I added another packet to see if it would help thicken it. As I am going to use it as a vegetable dip, I have to be able to record it Its VERY high in Sodium makes 16, 2 tablespoon servings

I saw someone else's recipe on here, and I had to tweak it to what I had on hand. (also I like things REALLY spicy :) )

Veggie Sandwich Meat Cheese Wrap

Very FILLING "over stuffed" wrap. Enough for a meal with all the components (veggies, meat, cheese)

Knorr Spinach Dip (reduced fat mayo version)

Dip for veggies. You could go lower fat with the fat free/reduced fat sour cream, however those usually add more sugars.

becky's mashed cauliflower

a bit healthier than mashed potato's, not the same taste but if you like cauliflower its good

Quaker Instant Cream of Wheat made with Unsweetned Vanilla Almond Milk and Fresh Blueberry's

I LOVE Toasted almonds and being a former bartender I miss making them. I thought I could try to make it alcohol free and NAILED it the first try. SOO YUMMIE

amazing grass pineapple/apple smoothie

Trying to get my ph levels even. Great Energy boost, NOT a meal supplement .It is higher in Sugar than I usually go for, but it's good for once in a while. I was a bit worried about the amazing grass taste....I heard that wheat grass can be unappetizing. This is the Berry Flavored and tastes GREAT I try to drink one of these (or variation) a day

Hidden Valley Ranch made with Cabot Greek Plain Yogurt (2 TBS /serv)

a healthier version. the Greek yogurt makes it just as creamy as with the sour cream. it does have a HINT of sour to it but its pretty darn good

Becky's summer veggie stir fry mix (peppers, onion, squash)

I LOVE Stir Fry, and use this as a base for many of my "made up" dishes (it is GREAT when you add scrambled eggs to it for breakfast,) it is easy to prepare ahead of time. can be used as is or marinated in your favorite marinade overnight . Storage Bags are my favorite way of storing
