Oh my goodness rainbowsmiles, I just cooked up a batch of your english muffins. I didn't have the rings so I used 3 mason jar rings and they turned into the perfect little pancakes which I'm savoring right now with a bit of wf pancake syrup and a tiny bit of wf strawberry spread. Oh so delicious.

I can't wait to try your crabcakes

I made your cookies for breakfast this morning, Rainbow and they were yummy. I didn't have any coconut oil so just used a tsp of EVOO which worked. I spread a little WF chocolate and caramel dip on them, yum! Thanks

hi sara, for the summer yellow squash i baked at 175 degrees and for 1.5 hours on one side and then i turned them and baked until crispy...about another 40-50 mins. They do take a long time in the oven....alas...i do not have a dehydrator!!! but they are so worth the effort!!! they are scrumptious!!!

Default Brussels Sprouts Chips



BRUSSELS SPROUTS CHIPS



7-10 brussels sprouts
1 tsp. olive oil (I use my Misto olive oil sprayer)
1/4 tsp. salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.



To remove outer leaves of brussels sprouts, use a sharp knife to trim off the very very edge of the bottom. Outer leaves should fall off easily. Once outer leaves are removed, trim the bottom again, removing more leaves. Continue removing leaves until they become difficult to peel off.



Save the center of each brussels sprout for another recipe. (i roast them in the oven with garlic for soups)



Spread leaves out in a single layer on baking sheets lined parchment paper. Spray with EVOO and I give them a little rub down to evenly coat!!



Roast for 10 minutes, then check leaves. Remove any that are crisp. Place baking sheet back in the oven and check every few minutes until all leaves are crisp. A little browning on the edge of the leaves is fine, but donít let the entire leaf turn brown or it will become bitter.
Serve immediately.



THESE ARE DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!!!
they have a little roasted nutty flavor, crispy, salty with a hint of olive oil infused in!!




WANNABiTE???

IP DISCLAIMER...THIS IS AN ALTERNATIVE RECIPE AND NOT FOR IP PHASE 1 OR 2!!

i love lemon....i love the smell...i love the taste...i love the zing!!!

i have tried and tried every IP lemon product and some alternatives from nashua nutrition (take my advice and don't order the lemon meringue bars YUK to the tenth degree)

1 tbsp carbquick,
1 tbsp coconut flour,
1 tbsp sweetener of choice, (powder stevia, splenda, erythritol)
teeny tiny dash salt,
1/2 tsp baking powder,
and a dash of poppy seeds...

mix all that in a bowl...and then add:

2 tbsp liquid egg whites
1 tbsp milk
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
zest of half a lemon

mix well and spray 2 small dishes with coconut spray or pam spray and divide into 2 dishes.

spread out evenly...not much mixture but it does rise up a bit

MICROWAVE on high 1 minute!! thats it!!

then top with .5 oz tofutti cream cheese mixed with the other half of lemon zest, a little lemon extract or lemon juice and some splenda...mixed and spread on top!!! omg good!!!

They were moist, fluffy not rubbery at all!!!
and most of all would not be restricted.

If you think those are good, you must try the yellow squash ones. I was hesitant as I like yellow squash less than zucchini, but I agree with rainbow, they are a lot better.

Default Wild Berry Yogurt Cookies!!!!!


HAPPY DANCE!!



Wild Berry Yogurt Cookies!!!!!

with
LEMON FROSTiNG!!!!!!!
and
TANGY GiNGER LEMONADE!!!



yum!!!! makes 8 cookies!!! yes...i ate one already!!



this is what i used....



mix IP wild berry yogurt powder with 1/2 tsp baking powder in a small bowl and 1 tbsp sweetener of choice, i used stevia in the raw.



i added 3 TBSP egg white and 2 tsp coconut oil into my magic bullet hopper with the flat blade....i blended a few seconds...it was lumpy...but that is ok because the coconut oil melts into the cookies!!

you could use evoo!!



it makes a nice thick dough!!!



i dropped by spoonfuls onto parchment paper...
oh yeah baby 8 cookies!!!!!




i spray the tops lightly with some coconut spray...
so that it makes them easier to pat flat and not have them stick...
but you could probably use a teeny bit of water on your fingertips as well.



i patted them all flat!! then baked for 10 mins on 350 degrees!!



the edges are nice and crispy crunchy and the middle is ever so slightly chewy!! the best of both worlds!! if you want totally crunchy, let them bake a little longer.

you an enjoy them like this...OR....
if your coach allows soy products...like tofutti....



mix 1 oz tofutti with 1 tsp lemon extract and zest of 1 lemon...
save the lemon and a little zest for your lemonade!!





add the sweetener of choice...1 tbsp.



MIX WELL!!!



divide evenly on top of your cookies....
and spread evenly....
don't forget to lick the knife....and the bowl!! yum!!!!



i sprinkle the tops with a little stevia and true lemon powder!!!


WANNABiTE???????

if you want a ginger lemonade....just juice your lemon...add some lemon zest, a packet of true lemon, the lemon juice, 1 tsp ginger, and ice and water and blend!!!





add sweetener to taste...not too much though....
DRiNK iT TANGY!!!!

i used LEMON DROP stevia drops!!




ENJOY!!!!!!!!!!!
