You have some great ideas here. I need to branch out beyond mashed cauliflower with curry powder in my chicken soup. I have been eating it most days since feb 2011!!
Thanks for the ideas!

I tried my first veggie purée with the blueberry/cranberry drink. I'm definitely going to be playing more with my blender! I said something to my DH about getting a dehydrator for veggies, and he said he had one in the basement - been there about 14 years - used once and is still in the box. Guess what I'm up to this weekend?!?

Liz,

I tried your cucumber margarita and it was incredible! I added a scoop of unflavored, low carb whey protein powder to it and it gave it a richer texture. I love your roasted veggie ideas, too. I've been using a lot of broccoli and cauliflower in cream of chicken soup (made with the same unflavored protein powder) for lunch. Keep the ideas coming!

Karen

I made a rutabaga milkshake from sweet fauxtato pie leftovers, no reason you couldnt throw it in an ice cream machine. Both the pie and milkshake were AWESOME, i am actually baking a rutabaga now for a puree reserve to use in some recipes since i feel a sweet tooth sweep in. Gotta be prepared...
heres the milkshake recipe: http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/4459921-post105.html

That Thai pesto is perfect - I had made my cucumber "lo mein" tonight and was thinking they might work as pad thai noodles! Your pesto would make a perfect sauce!

You can use it on miracle noodles, cuke or zuke noodles, or as a 'sauce' to toss just about any meat and veggies in.

I dont like the wf peanut spread on its own, nor most of the wf products in general, but they can make for some good sauce substitutions when doctored up.

Love the idea of pureeing veggies to make a sauce for evening meal protein! I'm always struggling with trying to figure out how to get the 4 cups veggies each day.

You are looking mighty fantastic, Liz. Great job on the loss!
