Try these great recipes from the MRC Cook Book and board members...sorry if some are repeats

Stuffed Green Peppers – from
1 lb. ground round or turkey
½ cup chopped green onions
½ tsp. each: garlic powder; pepper
2 small green peppers
1 pkg. cream of tomato supplement

½ cupbean sprouts, optional

Combine meat, 1 tbsp. green onions, garlic powder and pepper. Saute in skillet. Drain. Cut peppers in half, remove seeds and fill with meat mixture. Place in skillet, mix supplement with water, add remaining green onions and pour over peppers. Cover and simmer for 25 minutes.

Ranch Dip/Dressing – from board
1 package of Hidden Valley Ranch Powder
12oz. low-fat cottage cheese
Blender or food processor
This dip can be used in replacement for some of the protein in your meal plan. For example, one ounce of dip subtracts one ounce of protein off of the meal, so eat 5oz of chicken and 1oz of dip with your veggies. *this is also very good with french onion soup mix or any other dip mix*

Short Little Ideas

*Deviled eggs - using horseradish and a little mustard, salt & pepper

*Peach Mango (Liquid) HNS in the blender with about 7 ice cubes

*Lemon flavored creamy and mix it with frozen strawberries and a little splenda

*Tortilla and put cheese and veggies on it and maybe some lean meat and then broil it for a pizza-like treat.

Ice Cream Alternative – from txrose3
I took 2 pks of the vanilla pudding & added a can of diet orange soda, mixed well, then filled one of those popsicle trays with the mixture & stuck it in the freezer. Was pretty good. Sort of a cross between orange sherbert & a dreamsicle.

Breakfast Casserole – suggested by SouthernGal08
8 slices 40-calorie bread
6 eggs
1 pound ground turkey breast (cooked)
4 oz. cheddar cheese shredded
I Can't Believe It's Not Butter spray
Salt and pepper

Coat a 9 by 13 glass pan with Pam spray. Put slices of bread down and spray each slice with 5 pumps of "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" spray. In a separate bowl, beat 6 eggs with salt and pepper. Add mixture on top of the bread. Add cooked turkey breast on top, then sprinkle with cheese. Place in oven and bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes or until the eggs are cooked.

* Serves 8 on the beige menu. Serves 10 on the green menu (not sure about this - there are only 8 slices of bread?)
* Replaces protein and bread.

Green French Fries – suggested by Nan11

1 bag frozen green string beans
Favorite seasoning (garlic, Mrs. Dash, Lemon Pepper)
Pre-heat oven to 375
Spray Pam on cookie sheet
Place however many green beans you want on the sheet
Sprinkle with Seasoning
Bake in over for 30-45 minutes (you want the frozen beans to go from frozen to wilty to crispy, so keep an eye on them after about 20 minutes)
When they begin to look 'crispy', turn on your broiler and broil until they begin to look like they are curling (like french fries)
Remove and eat.

Better Than Ever Pancakes – suggested by MegNut63
1 slice bread
1 egg
2 oz. cottage cheese
2 tbsp. Vanilla supplement
To Taste: Cinnamon or Nutmeg or maple extract

Toast bread then break into pieces and place in food processor or blender. Grind to crumbs. Add remaining ingredients and blend smooth (it will still be a little grainy). Pour into heated skillet. When finished, sprinkle on a packet or two of Splenda.
"Maple" Syrup

4 Tbsp Splenda
1/4 cup water
1 tsp. Maple extract

Bring to a boil in pan, then simmer for 5 minutes or until thick. Use 2 tsp per serving.

Brownie Bites – suggested by SouthernGal08
(2 servings)

Take 2 packets of the Double Chocolate pudding (vanilla creme works great too) and pour into a bowl. Take out one or two spoonfuls of the dry powder and set aside. Mix the pudding with just a little water - enough to make it stick together so that you can shape it with your hands. Roll the dough into bite-sized balls in your hands, then roll into the dry powder you set aside. Yummy!

Sometimes I mix the chocolate pudding for the center, then roll it into a little bit of the vanilla creme dry powder! Very tasty!

Spicy Tuna Burgers – from 3FC message board
Serves: 2


1 can solid white albacore tuna, drained
1 large egg white
1 teaspoon lemon-pepper Mrs. Dash seasoning
1 tablespoon red pepper flakes

Directions: Mix all ingredients together in small bowl. Form two patties and cook on a preheated non-stick pan sprayed with non-stick cooking spray until tuna patties are slightly browned. Served on beds of lettuce (low carb) and/or on slices of low-calorie bread.

Try a dab of Dijonnaise for a little extra flavor.

Cheesy Spinach Chicken – suggested by Michelle127
4 oz of spinach
4oz of cottage cheese
2oz of chicken.

Mix it together and nuke for 4 minutes and voila - lunch or dinner. It was good! I have had such a hard time at lunch and this is going to help immensely!

First nuke your frozen spinach about 4 minutes or so. SQUEEZE out the water. I put it in a colander and pressed it with a fork. (It was still too watery...) Then I added the cottage cheese and chicken and nuked for 4 minutes. I added pepper and chopped up grape tomatoes. The CC melts and it looks pretty - all Christmasy. It was very good - though a tad bland. I'm not sure what spice it needs. Something tangy. I'd also add a smidge of LF cheese. FYI - it's 6oz of protein cuz I'm a big girl! Most of you are at 4 oz. I'd cut the CC to 3oz and 1oz of chicken. *this is one of my favorite recipes!!*

Broccoli Cheese Chicken Soup
One package of cream of chicken soup HNS
1 serving of cooked, cubed chicken (4 or 6oz depending on your plan)
1 serving (8oz) of broccoli, cooked (steamed) - the recipe called for 8oz, but 4oz is ok too if that what you want to do since its cooked
Shredded Cheese - optional

Mix the soup to the package specifications, add in the chicken and broccoli and cheese (microwave it if needed - I use left overs for this soup alot of the time). Eat up This is one of my favorite go-to easy meals. Technically if it's lunch, add fruit... it it's dinner, take out the cheese and add bread.

HNS Jello - Ok...I'm guessing at this one ladies and donuts. I didn't have any knox at home to read and I didn't write the recipe down, of here is my best shot at it. Mix the knox to package requirements (which should end up with about 8oz of water...4oz boiling and 4oz cold). Stir in the HNS package. Chill and serve. If memory serves, its a TON of jello to eat in one sitting, which is just A-OK with me. I too, prefer to eat my HSN...way more filling...but I recommend this for a snack, not with a's too filling for use with a meal. If any one tries this one, let us know if it worked. I think its the same as making knox gelatin with juice, which is on the package I think...sorry i can't be more exact. But, both Hubby and I liked our HNS this way.
If at first you don't succeed...dust yourself off and try again!
