Recipes I've Shared:
Chia seeds, when rehydrated with hot water form a jelly-type consistency. I like to add a package of sugar free Propel flavor to this, which creates a sort of jam that I can use on my high-protein scones. http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-deta
When I absolutely need a baked, bready-type item, and yet don't want to set off my glycemic cravings.
You can order carbalose flour from netrition.com
Shredded carrots form the base for this unusual combination of sweet and tangy flavors. The bright orange, red, and yellow colors are also fun to look at.
High protein, high fiber sustenance. Modification of original recipe from BREWMASTERBILL
A dose of protein you can make ahead, freeze, and then toss into soup or just microwave, or whatever. Sort of substitutes for poultry sausage. The protein and fiber help you feel full and the fiber helps the protein move through your system. You can use whatever seasonings you prefer.
While in CA this past January I developed a taste for Good Earth herbal tea. Unfortunately it is not easy to find where I live in upstate NY, so while waiting for a shipment to arrive from Amazon I came up with something close.
This concoction has a sweetness that helps make my sweet tooth cravings shut up and go away for a while. It's also good in the morning as something to put in a mug and microwave.
It would probably be awesome iced too, but it's too cold at the moment for me to want to try that! LOL
I got the original version of this recipe from HAVASUROSE. It is so much fun to cut the oranges into 8 wedges and blenderize them WITH THE PEEL STILL ON THEM! :-) Ultra high fiber, moist if you make them a day ahead and store in an airtight container, and very good for you.
The original recipe is here: www.recipezaar.com/Whole-Orange-Cranberry-
To increase the protein to calorie ratio I halved the sugar and oil, took out the nuts, swapped carbalose flour for standard flour, egg whites for whole eggs, and added a cup of defatted peanut flour. And they still taste good!
You can order carbalose flour from netrition.com and defatted (12% fat) peanut flour from byrdmill.com
I also switched to mini-muffins to make the portions more manageable.
According to the text, this has "70% of the calories of a traditional recipe."
My neighbor Irene found this recipe in a magazine years ago and makes it every year. I'm putting it in so I'll know what I'm eating!
Cheating, using bottled peanut sauce. Still yummy, though!
low-oil and low cheese

Will try this once I get some of the pudding mix. According to comments on above blog, it should come out just like fudgicles.
