Thai Pesto Chicken w/Coconut Lime Rice

Chicken:
1 cup loosely packed fresh cilantro leaves
3 tblspn fresh lime juice
2 tblspn unsalted dry-roast peanuts
2 tblspn fresh ginger
2 garlic cloves
3/4 tspn salt
2 tspn honey
1/2 tspn dried crushed red pepper
3 tblspn olive oil

Process all the above ingredients in food processor until smooth, and toss with sauted chicken (or shrimp) until coated.

(I couldn't find unsalted peanuts, so I just cut the salt out of the recipe)

Rice:

Combine 1 cup light coconut milk with water and bring to boil. Add 1 1/2 cup uncooked jasmine rice, reduce heat and simmer 20-25 minutes until tender and liquid is absorbed. Stir in 1 1/2 tblspn fresh lime juice (and 1 tspn of lime zest if you REALLY want it to zing!)

Serve chicken over rice for tasty chicken dinner of awesomeness! (or without rice for slightly less awesomeness)

P.S. You're welcome!

Default Tuscan Bean soup

Tuscan Bean Soup

1/2 cup kidney beans soaked overnight or 1 (14-ounce) can store-bought beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 cup cannellini beans soaked overnight or 1 (14-ounce) can store-bought beans, drained and rinsed
3 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for drizzling on bread
1/2 pound diced pancetta
2 cups diced yellow onions
1 cup diced celery
1 cup diced carrots
4 cloves garlic, sliced
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 (14-ounce) can diced tomatoes
1 (14-ounce) can chick peas, drained and rinsed
2 quarts chicken stock, plus extra water if needed
2 sprigs rosemary
3 sprigs thyme
1 sprig oregano
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon red chili flakes
2 heads Lacinata kale, stems removed and cut into bite size pieces ( i used spinach)

Directions
Place the kidney beans in a medium pot, add water to cover by 2-inches and bring to a boil. (If using canned kidney beans, skip this step.) Turn the heat down, let simmer for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until just-tender. Use the same process for the cannellini beans.


In a large soup pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the pancetta, rendering the fat and cooking until slightly crispy about 3 minutes. Saute the onion, celery, carrot and garlic for 3 to 4 minutes. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste. Add the diced tomatoes, the cooked and drained kidney beans, cannellini beans, chick peas, and the chicken stock. Using kitchen twine, tie the herbs and the bay leaf into a bundle and add to the pot. Season with the red chili flakes, salt and pepper. Cook for 15 to 20 minutes, then add the kale. Continue cooking until the beans are completely tender.


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Drizzle olive oil over the slices of peasant bread, season with a little salt and pepper and toast in the oven. Serve the soup in large bowls with grated Parmesan and a slice of toast.

I am on the atkins diet and have no time in the morning for breakfast so my mom found this great recipe it only takes 1 min and 15 seconds in the microwave.
Coffee Cup Scrambled Eggs

2 large eggs
1/2 tablespoon of butter
tiny bit of skim milk
sprinkle with cheese if desired

I cooked in microwave for 45 seconds then stirred. Put back in for 20 seconds. (Keep a close eye cause they grow quick put a papertowl on top to avoid a messy microwave)

I just made one this morning for the first time and it worked great. You can add whatever you like to it and I am sure it will be great.

Good Luck

Low Calorie Iced Coffee

1 16 oz Reusable Cold Cup

4-6 Ice Cubes

2 Tsp Organic Sugar (15 calories per tsp) (I heat 2 tsp up in a bit of water to dissolve. Takes about 30 seconds in the microwave.)

1/4 Cup 2% Organic Milk (33 calories)

Instant Coffee to your taste

Mix ingredients in warm water (except ice cubes) at first then add ice
and finish mixing. I do this in a shaker.

This iced coffee is just 65 calories per delicious 16 oz cup. You can save a few extra calories by using less sugar / Splenda (I actually prefer Splenda) or a lower fat milk. You can also add vanilla flavoring, cinnamon or no calorie caramel flavoring.

Guiltless Guacamole
From Good Housekeeping

Try this version, made with creamy mashed white beans and a single avocado. Calories are reduced by 40 percent!

Prep Time: 15 min
Yields: 3 cups

Ingredients:

1 can(s) (15 to 19 ounces) white kidney beans (cannellini), drained and rinsed
1 tablespoon(s) (or to taste) lime juice
1 jalapeño chile , seeded
1/2 cup(s) loosely packed fresh cilantro leaves
1/4 cup(s) coarsely chopped sweet onion (such as Vidalia or Maui)
Salt
1 ripe avocado, halved and pitted
2 plum tomatoes
Baked tortilla chips or fresh-cut vegetables

Directions:

In food processor with knife blade attached, puree beans and 1 tablespoon lime juice until smooth. Transfer to medium bowl.
In same processor, place jalapeño, cilantro, onion, and 1/2 teaspoon salt; pulse until juicy and thick.
With spoon, scoop avocado from peel into bowl with beans; mash with fork until mixture is blended, with some chunks remaining.
Cut each tomato crosswise in half. Squeeze halves to remove seeds and juice. Coarsely chop tomatoes. Stir tomato-and-onion mixture into avocado mixture until blended. If you prefer a little more zip, stir in additional lime juice to taste.

Guacamole is best served as soon as it's made, but you can also cover and refrigerate up to 1 hour. Serve with chips or vegetables.

VEGAN SLOPPY JOE STUFFED BELL PEPPERS
- A can of sloppy joe mix (1/4 can/serving)
- brown rice (no more than 1/2 a cup per serving)
- diced jalapenos
- corn
- soy or wheat based meat of your choice (about 100 calories/serving)
- kale

Cook the rice. Mix it in a pan with all the rest of the ingredients. Once warmed and incorporated stuff into bell peppers (save the tops!) and place in the 360 oven for about an hour.

DELICIOUS and only about 300 calories per serving. MAKES FOUR.

Strawberry Banana VEGAN "Ice Cream"

1/2 cup of frozen banana
2-3 frozen strawberries
1/2 almond milk

Blend and serve! I have this almost every night to curb my sweet tooth and love of ice cream. Place between two of your favorite low-cal cookies (I like The Tea Biscuits by Kedem at $1 a package ) for lovely little fruit filled ice cream sandwiches!

Healthy Egg McMuffins

1 Package of Thomas brand Light 100-Calorie Multi-Grain English Muffins
Thinly-sliced swiss cheese (I use Kroger brand)
Honeysuckle Turkey Breakfast sausauge
6 Eggs

Divide the sausage into 6 portioned patties and cook until no longer pink.

*There's not much oil leftover from this sausage, so try and make sure and use a nonstick skillet to fry your eggs in.

Build your egg mcmuffins, individually wrap in foil and stack in your english muffin wrapper for a near week's worth of breakfasts on-the-go!

I know, embarrassingly easy, but they're pretty amazing.

Each Egg McMuffin - 330 calories, 25 carbohydrates and 8 grams of fiber.

Mock Spanish "Rice" (Cauliflower, and you'd never know the difference!)

A 1/2 head of cauliflower, riced in your food processor
1/2 a large onion, diced
A small green pepper, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
Chicken stock
1 can diced tomatoes w/ green chiles
Your favorite taco seasoning, homemade or pre-packaged
Olive oil, 1-2 TBS.

Add olive oil to skillet and over medium-high heat saute the onion and green pepper until cooked through.
Add garlic (careful not to burn!) and saute until soft.
Throw your cauliflower in and stir until all is combined, then add 1 cup of chicken stock and cover letting the cauliflower soften and become more of a rice-like consistency. You may have to add another cup to a cup and a 1/2 to get there. Turn heat down to a simmer until all liquid is cooked out. Once your cauliflower is cooked through, add your diced tomatoes, taco seasoning and mix.

Garlic-Cilantro Lime Slaw (This stuff is amazing of shrimp and fish tacos!)

1/4 Cup Oil
1/4 Cup Water
1/2 Cup Green Onions, Chopped
1/2 Cup Cilantro
2-3 Cloves of Garlic (if you're not a big fan of garlic, feel free to use less!)
1/2 tsp. Salt
The juice of 2 Limes
1/2 Cup of fat-free Sour Cream
2-3 Cups Green Cabbage, Shredded

Pulse all the sauce ingredients except the sour cream in a food processor. When mostly smooth, add the sour cream and pulse until combined. Taste and adjust as needed. Toss some of the sauce (not all) with the cabbage until it the cabbage is coated to your liking. It should resemble a coleslaw - you want it to be enough sauce so the cabbage is weighed down a little bit.
Use leftover sauce on top of your tacos or in other recipes!

Default Green Smoothie

There might be another recipe for one of these out there, but this is my favorite. Assume ingredients are organic, but it's not a big deal if they aren't. This is a thicker green smoothie, as well as relatively high fat, but it's great first thing in the morning to get all those veggies in.

2 cups of mixed greens
2 carrots
1 stick of celery
1 cucumber
1 cup of coconut milk (Silk)
1 avocado
Juice of 1 lemon
1 scoop of protein powder
1 tbs Maca powder
1 tsp Matcha green tea
1 scoop of glutamine powder
Ice and water to desired consistency

Rough chop all vegetable ingredients and add to a blender. Add lemon juice, avocado, coconut milk, and powder ingredients, then blend on high till smooth. Add ice and blend. Add more ice and/or water and continue blending until the smoothie reaches the desired consistency.
