I made "hashbrowns" with shredded turnips. Peel and shred your turnip, spray a pan with cooking spray, preheat it a little, throw in the turnips and let them brown to your desired color, then flip and brown the other side. Season with sea salt, pepper, garlic powder if you like. You do have to eat them while they're hot, when they get cold,they're not quite as tasty
Had to make smashed cauliflower today...had dinner at Ruby Tuesdays with a friend who is on maintenance so he had the smashed cauliflower that has butter and cream in it (heavens forbid) while I had the steamed broccoli.
So today for lunch I cooked two cups of cauliflower florets till soft.
Made a pkg of IP chicken soup and divided it into four portions, used one portion, and added to cauliflower, along with some butter flavoring, Mrs. Dash's, garlic powder, 1 tsp of olive oil and pulsed it in the bullet, pushed the ingredients down and [ulsed some more...it was really good. I chopped up some lettuce, had WF onion dressing on that and because I only had 1/2 of my protein, I divided my raspberry gelatin in half and had that for dessert...very filling and the colors looked great on the dish....take that Ruby Tuesday's.!!!!! If I was a betting woman, I'd guess Novak has already done this. lol
This is my favorite dressing for red or napa cabbage slaw. I mix it and just have it available for each salad.
Toss red cabbage and or napa cabbage with yellow bell pepper and green onion. About 10 minutes prior to eating mix with dressing below.
Makes way more than you need.

My mom shared with me the VERY best recipe for turnips. We had these tonight and I could have eaten my weight in them!
2 tsp olive oil
sea salt to taste
Mrs. Dash garlic and herb seasoning
Peel turnips. Cut in half like you would an apple (vertically); then slice the halves into 1/4 inch pieces; then slice those so you have turnips that resemble small french fries. Season and saute in olive oil for a few minutes; then cover (this is the key) and steam until they are tender and sweet. These are the best turnips I have ever tasted! This make enough for two cups for two people if you get good size turnips.
Now in a size 6! Went from "gray haired granny" to "hot mama" in 4 months! Recently ran my first-ever 5k. My daughter ran with me and we finished it hand-in-hand, in under 45 minutes. We ran the entire way! I never thought it was possible.
I just got an order in today of several different flavors of liquid stevia. I made a rootbeer float for my night snack. I took a vanilla pudding pack and put in the blender with ice, water, splenda, a small amount of knox gelatin powder and 3 small drops of rootbeer flavored liquid stevia. It was excellent! What a nice treat. I love IP!
4 C romaine, torn into bite-sized pieces
1/2 garlic clove minced fine or grated with a micro grater
1/4 t dried oregano (or 1/2 t fresh)
1/4 t sea salt
ground black pepper (or what you like)
2 small Roman tomatoes cut in quarters
2-3 thin slices red onion opened into rings
1/3 - 1/2 English cucumber, sliced horizontally into half, then sliced into 1/4" thick slices
1/4 julienned green pepper
2 t olive oil, 9 grams
1/2 to 1 whole lemon, juiced
1 T dry mint
Layer ingredients in a largish bowl. Drizzle olive oil and lemon juice and toss. Put 1 T dried mint into the bowl of your hand and crush it finely. Sprinkle all over the salad. Dried works better than fresh.
Here is a recipe I tried tonight! It was great for satisfying my "I am bored and want something new" feeling.
Asian Sauteed Cucumber
3 medium to large cucumbers (seedless cucumbers)
2 tsp shallots
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger
1 squeeze or 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice and 1 teaspoon lemon zest
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh mint
Olive oil to saute
Dash of red pepper flakes (optional)
1. First prepare the cucumber. Dont peel. You can rake the outsides lengthwise with a fork for a decorative appeal. Cut lengthwise in thin strips and then in 1/4 pieces
2. Find a large pan,approximately 10" to 12". I used an iron skillet but, you could use non stick or other sautee pan.
3. Then heat the oil the same pan. Add the ginger, cucumber, soy and cook a couple of minutes. Then add the lemon juice, salt and pepper, and optional red pepper flake. Cook a few more minutes until cucumbers are starting to look translucent. Toss in the shallots, mint, and lemon. Allow to cook just until the shallot begins to change appearance. Then remove from the heat. Serve warm NOT hot or room temp.
I served this with a romaine side salad which had steamed mushrooms, 3 strips of fresh heirloom tomatoes (about 1/8 cup) and a homemade ginger soy dressing.
I selected some fresh, wild salmon, seasoned it with some garlic herb seasoning by Spice Hunter and broiled it til it was opaque and flaked easily.
Here is a picture. It isn't accurate on the salmon portion size. (I had to eat a little extra protein earlier and adjusted my dinner by 3oz.) This shows a 4oz (precooked wt.) salmon, 1-1/2 cups cucumber, 1-1/2 cup romaine and 1/2 cup mushroom.
I found this recipe on IdealToGo.com. It's very good!
1/8 c Olive oil
1/4 c Walden Farms Italian Dressing
2 TBS Minced Garlic
1-2 lbs of shrimp (medium size) uncooked
2 c of your favorite veggie
1 tsp dried Basel
1 tsp sea salt
1 tsp Italian seasoning
sprinkle of red pepper flakes for heat (optional)
pour olive oil and dressing into a large skillet and stir until mixed over medium heat. Add garlic, seasonings and veggies, stir until mixed. Add shrimp and cook over medium heat for 10 minutesor until shrimp are pink and done.
Ive made this several times and it never turns out the same way twice, but always so tasty! I use different seasonings, more or less shrimp, different veggies. ( Ive made it with asparagus, celery, onions, squash, even broccoli)
This will make a large quantity so I split it into portions and refrigerate. Its great for lunch and dinner the next day!
Brown extra lean ground beef
add taco seasoning mix as per package instructions
( I use reduced salt Old El Paso as it has no sugar and most of the others do)
ALWAYS watch your ingredients list and nutritional information
Shred TONS of head lettuce and add whatever other select veggies
Salsa (again watch the label I use Herdez) and 'sour cream' mixed together
WF mayo adds that creamy 'sour cream' taste/texture
un'cheese' which would be Soya (which we are allowed) cheese
There are many vegan cheeses out there and they have less fat and calories than just eating canned Soya beans
IP plain crepes, 1 small egg white, sea salt, 2 tbsp of oatbran, 120 mls water
cook in skillet like usual.
You should get about 4 crepes from this mixture and you don't need them all
just 1 or 2 save the rest for another day.
Cut 1 or 2 crepes into strips and bake in oven til crispy! (350 degrees and keep checking and flipping)
P.S. please don't dis my recipes. Hints and tips are nice and I am new at this IP stuff if there is something that doesn't work for you change it. This works for me.
With this I had half a can of diet cream soda because Pepsi makes diet creme soda, diet grape soda, and diet orange crush with SPLENDA!!! YAY!
1 cup grated zucchini
1-2 tbsp. grated onion
1 pkg. IP plain crepes
1/2 pkg. IP fine herb & cheese omlette
