I'm new to this forum but thank you for all those recipes! What a life saver! I've never been much of a veggie eater to begin with so i've been finding it hard to come up with things to eat for dinner. Thanks again!

Hi, guys. I haven't dropped in forever... thanks again for the kind comments.
I have updated my Facebook page so that the pix are now all in the right folders (Recipes made with IP Products, Low Carb Phase 1 Recipes, Laugh of the Day, Inspiration and Tips, etc)

Regarding a previous post about Cauliflower Rice... Best trick in the book:

Drop in chunks of fresh cauliflower in your blender. Add water. Cover and turn on for a few seconds at a time. When it looks like the cauliflower is "rice size", drain all the water. Your Cauliflower is effortlessly now ready to make some KILLER rice dishes you will love. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TW6UA90bnIo

One cup of green peppers raw chopped = 4 net carbs, 200% Vit C, 11% Vit A while one cup of red peppers raw chopped is 6 net carbs, 317% Vit C, 93% Vit A. Yellow peppers 1 cup raw chopped = 5 net carbs, 306% Vit C, 4% Vit A. I think that is bunk to put it mildly - just going by the IP protocol sheets. Coloured peppers ARE NOT LISTED ON THE 'OCCASIONAL' LIST in the protocol sheets. With a diet this restrictive we need as many natural vitamins as we can get.
Phew!! I love my bell peppers and i eat them all week!! all colors!!! And yes in my case it has not made a difference either!!
This is such a wonderful thread for a newbie like me!! Thank you everyone for taking out time to share those yummy recipes!! I start week 4 Phase 1 today and i need to mix things up a bit !!! This will help a LOT!!

Smile Sick of salads

I too was sick of two salads a day so I improvised. In a blender I combine 16 oz. of water. the juice of one lemon and grated rind, two huge handfuls of salad greens from Costco, 1 cup of green pepper, and 1 cup of cucumber. Blend until it gets as smooth as possible. Then add an IP fruit drink of choice. Stir in the IP drink as it will foam if blended. I have tried pineapple/banana (favorite in this drink), peach/mango, and blueberry/cranberry/pomegranate drink. Just a reminder: You will have to eat the vegetables which float to the top of the drink with a spoon. It is a fun way to have your required veggies for lunch or when you are on the go. I will warn you the drink does not keep a person full as long as eating a regular salad. Being retired we just have our evening meal a little earlier. Hope this helps.

Hi librarylady! You don't have to eat salads at all if you don't like them. Your veg can be sauteed mushrooms and zucchini with garlic and soy sauce, roasted cauliflower and broccoli, roasted fennel, a tomato stuffed and baked with your choice of protein or other veg, a whole roasted pepper stuffed with protein & veg, grilled veggie kebabs, steamed asparagus with lemon, etc.... There are so many other ways to eat vegetables, they don't have to be salads or crudites. One of my faves is to cook up spinach like Indian saag with a bit of lemon, cumin seeds, coriander, s&p and cutting chunks of cooked chicken breast into it instead of paneer. Add cauliflowerets sauteed with garlic and curry spices on the side, yummers!
