Indian Squash Soup

Here's a recipe that was inspired by one suggested to me by my coach:

1 IP chicken soup packet
4 oz water
2 c squash (zucchini or calabasa/Mexican grey squash)
1-2 tsp cumin or to taste
dash of cayenne powder or to taste
1/2 tsp. curry powder or to taste
1 tsp olive oil
2 tbsp. reduced fat sour cream

Dice and cook squash in about 4 oz of chicken broth in a sauce pan. Puree with an emersion or regular blender to desired consistency. Combine chicken soup mix with 4 oz or so cold water in a shaker cup. Add soup mixture, spices, and olive oil to squash and reheat. Turn off heat and add sour cream. Stir well.

This tastes so good and it's very filling. You don't even taste the squash at all.

Enjoy!

Karen

Default Plain Omelet Souffle!

Found this while doing a web search for things to try....couldn't find it here, so apologies if it exists somewhere!

Thanks to Valdrake at sparkpeople.com for this recipie!

1 pkg. IP plain omelet mix
200 ml. water
1 pkg. Splenda or stevia (optional)
sprinkle cinnamon or nutmeg (optional)
1 Tbsp. Walden Farms orange jam (optional)
1 Tbsp. Walden Farms raspberry or other jam (optional)

Shake or blend omelet mix into water with sweetener if desired. Pour into large microwaveable bowl (a 4 cup Pyrex measuring cup is perfect). Sprinkle with cinnamon or nutmeg. Put in microwave and cook for approx. 4 min. on 50% power (until all of the liquid egg mixture is solid). The egg white mixture will puff up a lot so make sure you have a large glass bowl or measure or it'll be all over the microwave! It settles down when cooked. Remove the souffle from cooking bowl with rubber spatula and put into serving bowl.

If you want to make it extra special, heat any combination of Walden Farm jams (1 Tbsp. of two jams works well) in the microwave for 1 min. and pour over the souffle. You can eat it hot or put it in the fridge to cool off for a dessert. I added a Tbsp. of Walden Farms marshmallow dip spread on the top to the cold version and had it served to me at a restaurant when the rest of my family was digging into chocolate lava cakes and didn't feel deprived. I also eat it most mornings for breakfast. Play around with combinations of Walden Farms toppings and this is a flexible dish! Enjoy!

***For me, I don't use the sweetner, and put a bunch of pumpkin spice in the mix...I only have W.F strawberry spread, so I use that....but yummy!!

I just ordered a waffle/omelete maker. I can't wait to try out the IP pudding waffles. I have 2 boxes of pudding and I finally have a use for it.

I make pancakes with the cereal all the time. Has anyone tried to use that in a waffle maker?

Default Chocolate Muffins

I had a seriously bad craving for some sort of muffin, and was ready to cheat... But I improvised with some of my packets. I am using Alternatives. It's all ProtiDiet packets, but I would imagine it would work the same for IP.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

spray cooking spray on the muffin pan

Ingredients:
1 packet ProtiDiet Chocolate pudding mix
1 Packet of ProtiDiet plain pancake mix
1 egg
1 tsp of baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tbs of EVOO
1 tbs of fat free milk
2 tsp of Walden Farms Caramel/Chocolate dip

mix with a spoon all together. and scoop in muffin pan. And bake for 15 MINUTES ONLY!

taste better when warm and Enjoy

Saw this posted on FinnSteven's Facebook page...gotta try it, it looks delish!

Thanks FinnSteven for sharing it (and sorry for grabbing it, but it looks so yummy I had to post it!)


Been experimenting with Phase 1 baking lately...came up with a non-restricted Chocolate Banana loaf this afternoon that was quick and easy to make and turned out great! You know it's a success when your kids ask for seconds! =)

CHOCOLATE-BANANA BREAD:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Spray a mini-loaf pan with olive oil non-stick spray

In a bowl, mix the following:
1 packet Chocolate Drink Mix
1 packet Banana Pudding Mix
2 egg whites (may also work well with 1 whole egg)
1 tablespoon nonfat milk (could use up to 2 for a total of 1 oz nonfat milk in place of using 1 oz nonfat milk with your coffee in the morning)
2 tablespoons of olive oil
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons Walden Farms chocolate syrup (or 1-2 teaspoons Splenda may work well)
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Pour all contents into the mini loaf and bake for about 15 minutes.

Yields 2 non-restricted products. You could eat half & share the rest, or eat half the loaf today and half the loaf tomorrow, or eat half the loaf for breakfast and half the loaf for a snack, etc

I make chocolate ice cream using the chocolate drink mix. Honestly... I've convinced myself it tastes like a Frosty from Wendy's & I eat it every night while watching TV.

1 pkg chocolate drink mix
1/4 cup water
1.5 cups of crushed ice

Blend in a magic bullet until smooth. Seriously... it's got an ice cream texture & it's so good. This will help me get through the summer months!

This is so so so good with chocolate drink + chocolate pudding + Torani sugar-free raspberry syrup!

This sounds delicious! Thanks for sharing. It's my very first day on IP and I found this website and got hooked immediately. I know it's going to help motivate me to read these posts. I especially like this thread. Thanks again for the inspiration!!

This is cool (literally). I was wondering if we could add ice to the drink packets.
Thanks

I am concerned I've made my chocolate-banana bread into a restricted snack as I've players around with it but when I add the calories up it shouldn't be so. I may not be considering the entire nutritional combination, however. I use:

1 dark chocolate pudding mix
1 banana pudding mix
1 egg and 2 TBLS egg white (I saw a version of this recipe that uses this combination so used it)
2 TBLS non-fat milk
2 TBLS olive oil
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp stevia
4 or 5 oz water

What am I not considering? I feel like half a loaf may be restricted because I seem to be in some sort of weight plateau right now. I have not seen my scale budge again this week, after actually gaining a pound last week. I am not so worried about that right now but, again, am concerned that I will see this trend continue if I use this recipe. Also, it is soo tasty it is hard to believe that half a loaf isn't restricted!!

If you are tired of the same ole packet and want a flavour change:

Vanilla Chai Pudding
-boil 150ml water and prepare chai tea (I let mine steep for about 5 mins to increase the flavour)
-put in fridge to cool
-mix with Vanilla Pudding


I also tried making a Matcha Vanilla Drink but I need to experiment a bit more with flavourings so it's less bitter tasting (will post when I figure out the right combinations)
