Kim, I think a banana is about 2 points, depending on the size. I haven't done WW in awhile.

Umm...does it have to be healthy? This is an EASY one you can make for parties to fatten up everyone else.

Take 1 package of Oreos. One package of cream cheese. Mush both together till they turn into a kind of dough. Yes, a whole package of cookies, cream filling and all. Then, let it cool so it is easier to work with. Roll into balls, dunk in some melted chocolate chips and set on wax paper in the fridge to harden. If you want to be extra creative, drizzle with melted white chocolate. I've also added almond flavour or little crushed thin mint pieces. You could add coconut or put something in the middle like a bit of peanut butterish gnash (sp?). Wide range of possibilities, and the easiest truffles you'll ever make. Keep them small, they are rich.

Default A great treat, low cal, low carb, for anytime of the day

I don't know if anyone buys products from Andrew Lessman. My parents use this, and I have got hooked on it. It is a powder drink, and don't think yuck, because mixed together with water, ice, and either yogurt, fruit, or both it taste very good. It would be great on a very hot day, but I drink it even in the winter. I call it a smoothie for my daughter, and she can have one whenever she wants. It only has 70 calories in it, and then if you add 1/4 c. of fruit, or I also use the 60 calorie yogurts, it is a very healthy meal, or snack. It comes in many flavors, but I like the Vanilla, and the Pina Colada the best. The brand name is called Secure. Let me know if anyone is interested, and I can post the website to buy it from. I just buy it, I have nothing to do with them selling it. Just thought I would share something yummy! I mix it up in a blender. It also has 26 vitamins and minerals in it, and only 9 carbs in the one scoop of powder.

Also, there are some seasoning packets called "Crockery Gourmet" that are great!

If you have the time, sear the chicken breasts in olive oil and garlic for about 3 minutes on each side before putting in the crockpot with the salsa. It makes for a crispy, garlic-y yumminess.

I have had these before. My best friend owns a bakery and she makes a version of these and they are so awesome! I no longer go into her bakery. She always wants me to try everything! lol

LOW CARB BREAD RECIPE

This is called "focaccia" because it is baked in that style -- flat on a sheet pan, and then cut up into whatever sized pieces you want. It works for toast, sandwiches, and other bready uses. It is "rough" in texture like heavy whole grain breads. Since it isn't made with wheat, it doesn't have the same kind of grain as wheat breads, but the carb in flax is almost all fiber. Flax is very useful on a low carb diet, as well as being amazingly good for you.
Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups flax seed meal
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1-2 Tablespoons sweetening power from artificial sweetener
  • 5 beaten eggs
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/3 cup oil
Preparation:

Preheat oven to 350 F. Prepare pan (a 10X15 pan with sides works best) with oiled parchment paper.

1) Mix dry ingredients well -- a whisk works well.

2) Add wet to dry, and combine well. Make sure there aren't obvious strings of egg white hanging out in the batter.

3) Let batter set for 2 to 3 minutes to thicken up some (leave it too long and it gets past the point where it's easy to spread.)

4) Pour batter onto pan. Because it's going to tend to mound in the middle, you'll get a more even thickness if you spread it away from the center somewhat, in roughly a rectangle an inch or two from the sides of the pan (you can go all the way to the edge, but it will be thinner).

5) Bake for about 20 minutes, until it springs back when you touch the top and/or is visibly browning even more than flax already is.

6) Cool and cut into whatever size slices you want. You don't need a sharp knife; I usually just cut it with a spatula.
Nutritional Information: Each of 12 servings has less than a gram of effective carbs (.7 grams to be exact) plus 5 grams fiber, 6 grams protein, and 185 calories.

This is a favorite recipe of mine. So versatile as you can switch out the veggies for whatever you have on hand (especially during the summer from your own garden or local co-op)

From the Vegetarian Time magazine....

Vegetarian Gumbo
Serves 8

1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup flour
1 small onion, chopped (1 cup)
1 small green bell pepper, chopped (1 cup)
3 stalks celery, chopped (1 cup)
1 28oz can diced tomatoes
2 cups fresh or frozen green beans
3 carrots, sliced (2 cups)
1 parsnip, diced (1cup)
1 cup fresh or frozen sliced okra, optional
1 Tbs. ground cumin
1 Tbs. paprika
1 Tbs. drid oregano
1/4 Tsp. cayenne pepper
------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Stir together oil and flour in Dutch oven or heavy -bottomed pot until smooth. Cook over high heat 10 minutes, or until roux turns a dark caramel color, stirring constantly.

2. Add onion, bell pepper and celery and cook 5 minutes or until vegetables are softened. Stir in all remaining ingredients and 4 cups of water. Season with salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook 40 minutes or until carrots are tender. Serve over rice.

Per serving: 216 cal, 3 G Prot, 14.5 G total Fat (2 G sat. fat), 21 G Carbs, 0 MG chol, 309 G sodium, 6 G fiber, 8 G sugars.

Slow-Cooker Southwestern Chicken-Another staple recipe of mine for busy chilly days.

Ingredients:

1lb boneless skinless chicken breast cut into 1 inch strips(I use tenders and then cut them into bit size pieces)
2 Tbl. taco seaoning mix
2 Tbl.whole wheat flour
1 green and red pepper cut into strips (again I found bit size pieces worked best for me)
1 cup frozen corn
1.5 cups salsa

--------------------------------------------------

toss chicken with seasoning and flour into slow cooker, stir in all remaining ingredients and cover with lid. Cook on low for 6-8 hours (5 hours worked best with the bite size pieces for me)

Serve with brown rice.

Crockpot Beef Stew
NI for entire recipe cal 2775/fat59/fib51

2 lbs beef stew, cut into cubes
1/4 cup flour
4 large carrots, sliced thinly
4-5 good sized potatoes, cubed
1 cup beef broth
salt and pepper to taste
1/3 cup soy sauce
1 lg onion, diced
8oz can of tomato sauce

Layer potatoes, then carrots. Mix meat, soy sauce, salt , pepper and flour, in a bowl, then layer on top of carrots. Layer of onions is next. The combine broth with tomato sacue and pour over everything. Do not stir. Cook on low for 8-9 hours.


I changed this recipe a bit by adding 8 oz of chopped can tomatoes, 1 rib of celery and a cup of water. I also decreased the soy sauce and only used about half of what was listed. I cooked on high for four hours. I came up with 9 one cup servings. Very yummy and filling.
