The flax and chia seed mixture adds Omegas, fiber and keeps you SERIOUSLY full! Its made by Spectrum Essentials (I found it in Sprouts Market)
Its not thick enough to be a full blown stew but it's thicker than most soup - hence, STEWP :)
A different twist on the usual Green Monster, using what I had on hand
Just a variation of my go-to protein cake - this one with the flavors of my favorite season!
As with the original one I posted here, mix your protein flavors, your syrup flavors, your spices - play with it to give it the flavor and t aste you want! We make these using all kinds of sugar free syrups and protein flavors - with fresh fruit, with chocolate milk, chocolate syrup, with nut butters, really the possibilities are endless!
It's listed as a snack, but there are more times than I will admit I have had it for breakfast, or for dinner :) When it's a snack, the hubby and I will share one which cuts the nutritionals right in half.
double portion of this recipe
detail.asp?recipe=187337 made for office crockpot lunching
Other changes to original recipe are we made it with white meat chicken, no celery
In this house, we fight over the Birds Eye Steam Fresh Garlic Cauliflower - the 4 serving bag quickly becomes a 2 serving bag (although we have both been known to eat the whole thing by ourselves.
When reading about all these people who were mashing cauliflower for fake mashed potatoes. I decided to try it using our favorite quick and easy cauliflower.
I added some Greek Yogurt for protein and a little creaminess and while the texture is not smooth and creamy like potatoes, it is still a delicious side dish.
I do not like radishes. Sorry, but I don't. Ive been reading about how good they are for you though, so when I heard someone say how their flavor changed when they were cooked, I decided to play around some. What I came up with is a fantastic faux-home fry (at least we think so!). You won't fool anyone into thinking they're potatoes, but I bet no one suspects it's radishes!
We had it tonight along side an egg white/turkey/onion omelet - yum!
Just threw this together as a quick and easy dinner

She explains these little yummies like this:
They’re raw. They’re sinless. They’re delicious… and totally addictive. Don’t say I didn’t warn ya.
And they are :)
Not mine - just added it in to track!
From the World According to Eggface Blog
(She tops this with sugar free Strawberry topping, hence the name - but I didnt include it in the nutrition since I dont use it)
Found this recipe here:
om/2009/07/nectar-of-gods.html and wanted to get the nutritional values. I entered it and based it off 10 servings (a pure guess!) so your miliage may vary. Please feel free to recalculate based on your specific ingredients and serving sizes
This is not my creation!!
I found it on Shelly's Blog (here http://theworldaccordingtoeggface.blogspot
She's had WLS - she has some great recipes that I use even though I didn't have WLS. Her sugar free high protein recipes are usually awesome - I just entered this here to get an idea of the caloric content for this high(er) protein dessert.
My mom used to just throw tings in the crock pot for a stew, this is one of the combinations I remember. Season any way you like, or add in other veggies

Something about roasting the apples gives this applesauce an amazing flavor.
Depending on the apples you use, you get a different flavor - I generally use Pink Ladies and Honeycrisps combined but any apples you like will work here.
I also ran this thru the calculator without the brown sugar and it comes about about 10 calories less per serving - totally up to you if you want to add it or not - i let the apples I use determine the need for the sugar :)
Saw this over on http://eatingwelllivingthin.wordpress.com/
page/3/. She does lots of sugar free low carb cooking, and I wanted to compare her nutritional stats with SP. It shows a little higher here (about 30 cal more) nothing major. Go check out her blog, she really has some easy to follow delicious recipes. She had WLS. I didn' t but still really like her stuff.
From her description:
Let’s just make up our minds, shall we? Is it a souffle or a cheesecake? It’s both! Made with Greek-style yogurt and egg whites, for the puffy factor, it’s a souffle right out of the oven. As it cools down it will fall and become more dense like a cheesecake.
Not too sweet, but light, airy, and rich-feeling – it’s a no-guilt (practically calorie-free -YES!) dessert that could also masquerade as breakfast. Oh, why not? Add some diced berries and you’re good to go. A drizzle of chocolate sauce and Heaven’s around the corner.
Call it whatever you want, but I know you’ll love it, regardless!
Just using Trader Joe's Spiced Apple Bread mix but using banana and applesauce instead of eggs and butter
Based on recipe from Kraft, just with spinach added and lower sodium ingredients.
What I like may be different from what you like, so please don’t look at this as a “be all end all must follow exactly” kinda recipe, it’s not. I did what I always do, started with something for a base, then experimented and made changes until it was what I wanted - for example, the original recipe I got had a TON of sugar in it, so I experimented with healthier ingredients until I found what worked for me. Mix and match your spicing – mine is drastically different from what the original called for. I added the apples in addition to the craisins called for because I like them – take them out or add a different fruit – make it your own!
You can just eat it warm, or with a bit of milk drizzled on it. A certain man in my house likes to eat it cold from the refrigerator – cuts a square, and heads out the door for work. (I confess to having tried it that way too - not bad, but I prefer it warm.)
EASY and delicious crock pot meal
My version of this yummy dish, made with fire roasted garlic tomatoes for more zesty flavor
With ON Gold Standard Protein Powder instead of DW
This is the same basic premise as PBBC (v1) - only difference is I used the powdered Chocolate Peanut Butter in this shake and I wanted to see the nutritional differences
From the Feeding my Enthusiasms Blog:
A bit heavier than I usually go for breakfast but this was made up one morning when I needed something fast, hearty and delicious. I had worked out before eating, and was really hungry when I was done, so I threw this together.
The protein powder flavors and frozen fruit you use can obviously be changed to suit your needs - I find the frozen banana provides a wonderful creamy texture and goes really well with the peanut butter and chocolate.
I take NO credit for these delicious muffins. I found them here:
I only entered them to see what the calorie count would be - (it's actually probably a little lower since the author points out you dont need all the topping for these muffins and there is quite a bit left over.)
Just the way I make mine, slightly different from others
This was a recipe shared with me by a friend, who found it on a WLS blog here http://theworldaccordingtoeggface.blogspot
Variation on recipe I posted here
The 1st one I posted was a recipe shared with me by a friend, who found it on a WLS blog here:
my proportions of mini cheesy meatloaf
From EatingWell Magazine January/February 2008
Makes 8 servings, about 1/2 cup each
I started mixing this up for breakfast for myself and I'm sharing it because it had become a household favorite that has even caught on at work. With just over 300 calories, 20 grams of protein and 9.5 grams of fiber it's not a bad way to start the day!
quick and easy dinner
Quick and easy quesadillas - easy to double or triple to feed more people
I know there is another Maple Pecan recipe on here, but the numbers weren't adding up for me. I had a 1lb package of chicken which was 3 breasts and I couldn't quite see 1/2 a breast per person.
I re-entered the recipe with the information from the packages in front of me, and adjusted the serving size to 1 breast.
It takes all of 10 minutes to make this warm and filling oatmeal and the lingonberries give it a slitghly sweet/tart bite.
This is a weekend special breakfast for us - fast and easy too! Sometimes (as shown in pic) we add a dollop of Fat Free Redi Whip on top
From January/February Cooking Light magazine - only change I made from original was I used parchment paper instead of cooking spray on the baking sheets (I was out)
Made these by special request and they turned out rather well.
