USE JIMMY DEAN TURKEY CRUMBLES

SUGAR FREE FLUFFY SWEET POTATOES

THE ORIGIONAL RECIPE BY CYRUSFAMILY, HAD TOO MUCH SODIUM AND SUGAR FOR ME SO I JUST COPIED IT AND CHANGED SUGAR TO STEVIA AND BOULION CUBES TO LOW SODIUM BROTH. I ALSO REDUCED IT BY 1/2 BECAUS THERE ARE JUST 2 OF US.

SPICY LOW CARB CHICKEN SOUP

I COOK THIS SLOWLY IN THE CROCK POT

PITA NACHOS

I LOVE NACHOS AND I LOVE PITA CHIPS AND THE MORE MEDITERANIAN FOODS TOO. SO I JUST TOPPED A SERVING OF PITA CHIPS WITH WHAT I HAD AROUND THAT I LOVE! I USED THE SWEET RED PEPPER CANNED AND PACKED IN WATER.

DH HAS BEEN MAKING CHILI FOR YEARS, THIS IS HIS MOST RECENT RECIPE THAT'S ACTUALLY GOOD!

CROCK POT CREAMY CHICKEN RICOTTA

I MODIFIED AN OLD RECIPE USING RICOTTA IN PLACE OF THE SOUR CREAM. I ADD THE MUSHROOMS AT THE END SO THEY AREN'T OVER COOKED.

I HAVE TO HIDE VEGIES TO GET DH TO EAT THEM. SO HERE'S MY SOLUTION...HE LOVES MEAT LOAF. I GRATE THE VEGIES SMALL AND HE GOBBLES IT DOWN.

SOUTH BEACH SMOKED SALMON FRITATA

YOU CAN SUBSTITUTE HAM FOR THE SMOKED SALMON FOR THIS RECIPE.. THE ORIGIONAL RECIPE CALLS FOR STEAMING FRESH SALMON, I THAW FROZEN AND I USE CHEF MEGS OVEN ROASTED SUNDRIED TOMATO RECIPE. IT'S SUPER YUMMY, EASY, AND SEEMS DECADANT!

I USED THE SLOW COOKED RUMP ROAST WITH THE DRIPPINGS THAT I MADE EARLIER THIS WEEK. SUBSTITUTED POTATOES FOR CAULIFLOWER TO LOWER CARBS. THIS IS YUMMY

SOUTHERN COUNTRY CORNBREAD

FROM THE MARTHA WHITE CORN MEAL MIX BAG. THIS IS A GREAT CORN BREAD RECIPE.

HIGH PROTEIN CHILI

THIS HAS NO PEPPERS BECAUSE THAT'S HOW MY HUSBAND WILL EAT IT. SEASON TO TASTE. I LIKE IT HOTTER THAN HE DOES SO I SEASON IT MORE IN THE BOWL AND TOP IT WITH SOUR CREAM OR CHEDDAR.
I START IT ON THE STOVE TOP IN THE MORNING AND PUT IT IN THE CROCK POT TO COOK ON LOW.

LOW CARB SMOKED SALMON FRITTATA

I MODIFIED THE SOUTHBEACH DIET SMOKED SALMON FRITTATA TO FIT THE INGREDIENTS I HAD ON HAND (FROZEN ASPARAGUS SPEARS, HEAVY WHIPPING CREAM, AND SUNDRIED TOMATO PESTO INSTEAD OF 1/4 CUP OF SUNDRIED DRY PACKED TOMATOES).
YOU CAN SUBSTITUTE BROCCOLI FLOURETS FOR THE ASPARAGUS AND HAM FOR THE SALMON.

ST PATRICKS DAY SHEPPARDS PIE REMAKE

I GOT THE ORIGIONAL RECIPE OFF FOOD NETWORK MELISSA'S SHEPHERD'S PIE. I LIGHTENED IT UP AND REDUCED CARBS AND FAT FOR ME. I ALSO CUT IT IN 1/2 BECAUSE IT'S JUST THE DOGS AND I THRU THE WEEK.
I JUST COPY AND PASTED THE DIRECTIONS BUT THAT WILL BE A LITTLE DIFFERENT BECAUSE I USED PRECOOKED TURKEY BACON AND GROUND TURKEY.

ROASTED VEGETABLE SALAD

I LOVE THE GRILLED VEGETABLE SALAD AT LONGHORN STEAKHOUSE SO I TRIED COPPYING IT AND IT TURNED OUT GREAT! THIS MAKES 2 GREAT SALADS!

THE ZONE DIET BLUEBERRY PANCAKES (LOW CARB/LOW FAT)

I SUBSTITUTED SKIM MILK FOR 1% AND EGG SUBSTITUTE FOR 2 WHOLE EGGS SINCE I HAVE TO REDUCE FAT FOR MYSELF BUT THE ZONE DIET USES THE WHOLE EGGS AND 1% MILK. I ALSO SUBSTITUTED CANOLA FOR OLIVE OIL BECAUSE I THOUGHT IT SOUNDED BETTER FOR BREAKFAST PANCAKES.
I'M USING THIS DIET WITH THE SPARK TO KEEP MY INSULIN DOWN WITH IN THE ZONE.

SMALL LIGHT CARROT SOUFFLE'

I CUT THIS RECIPE IN 1/2 AND LOWERED THE FAT. I ALSO USED SPLENDA BLEND INSTEAD OF SUGAR.
IT ONLY INCREASED THE CALORIES BY 2.4 BUT USING THE SPLENDA BLEND REDUCED THE SUGAR AND INCREASES THE PROTEIN BY USING WHOLE GRAIN FLOUR

LIGHT BREAKFAST CASSAROLE

THIS IS A 1/2 RECIPE OF THE BREAKFAST CASSAROLE THAT I MADE A LIGHTER VERSION OF. I HAD TO CHANGE A FEW INGREDIENTS BECAUSE I DIDN'T HAVE ALL OF THEM AND IT LIGHTENED THE RECIPES. IF YOU USE THE REDUCED FAT CHEDDAR CHEESE IT'S EVEN LIGHTER BUT I DIDN'T HAVE THAT.

SWEETENED CREAM CHEESE TOPPING

I CAN'T HAVE SUGAR BUT I LOVE CARROT CAKE WITH CREAM CHEESE FROSTING. I ADLIBBED WITH THE POLANERS SUGAR FREE ORANGE MARMELADE AND 6 PACKS ON ONLY SWEET (STEVIA) IN 1 1/2 PACKS OF NAUFCHATEL CHEESE. I SOFTEN THE CHEESE IN THE MICROWAVE ON THAW, I DO THE SAME WITH THE FRUIT SPREAD. THIS IS VERY GOOD AND WILL BE GREAT ON TOAST TOO!

HEALTHY CARROT CAKE WITH NO SUGAR

DRAIN CANNED YAMS (IT TAKES 1 1/2 SMALL 15 oz CANS)

BOIL WATER TO MAKE 5 SERVINGS OF GRITS MINUS 1/2 CUP (GRITS SHOULD BE A LITTLE THICK).
EMPTY GRITS INTO A SMALL MIXING BOWL ADD WATER AND GARLIC POWDER AND STIR.
OPEN THE TAMALES AND POUR THE SAUSE INTO THE GRITS MIXTURE.
ADD 3/4 CUP OF SHREDDED CHEESE AND MIX INTO THE GRITS.
I DIVIDE GRITS INTO 3 SMALL PYREX CASSAROLES SPRAYED WITH COOKING SPRAY SO I CAN HAVE THIS ON 3 SEPERATE OCCASIONS. OR YOU CAN PUT MIXTURE INTO A PYREX LOAF PAN SPRAYED WITH COOKING SPRAY. FOR SMALL CASSAROLES, BREAK TAMALE IN 1/2 AND PUSH VERTICALLY DOWN INTO THE GRITS SO JUST THE OPEN TOP OF THE GRITS MIXTURE.
SPRINKLE A LITTLE EXTRA SHREDDED CHEESE ON TOP (MAY BE ADDED LAST FEW MINUTES OF BAKING, I LIKE IT CRISPY).
YOU MAY FREEZE THE EXTRA SMALL CASSAROLES UNCOOKED BUT COVER TIGHTLY. BAKE ABOUT 375* TO 400* LONG ENOUGH TO HEAT THRU AND MAKE CHEESE BUBBLY.

CHOP THE ONION AND GREEN PEPPER INTO LARGE CHUNKS AND 1/2 THE MUSHROOMS. ADD THE VEGETABLES THE LAST COUPLE OF HOURS OF COOKING TIME SO THEY WILL NOT OVER COOK.
