I'm new to this site, but not so new to MRC...Actually, it's the 3rd time I've started. This time....

I wanted to share a few recipes that I love!

Vanilla Chai: Use one of those large coffe mugs, pour in a vanilla pudding mix and wisk it. Drop in a Decaf Chai Tea Bag and microwave til hot. It's WONDERFUL! I usually add a splenda 'cuz it's my dessert!

Taco Salad: 4oz Lettuce (I like it shredded, so I cut it up fairly fine), 2 oz cukes, 2oz toms, 5 melba rounds (broken, not crushed) and 4 oz of chicken/ground turkey/whatever you like and 1 oz shredded cheese. I LOVE the honey mustard dressing the cook book (equal parts Olive Oil, Vinegar and Dijon Mustard and a sweetener to taste...shake, shake, shake). It's a HUGE salad, you get everything you need for the dinner meal.

One of my favorite drinks is the Mixed Fruit Fiber drink mixed up with the lemon HNS. OMG!!! It's so good. I usually have that with my breakfast and drink it all the way to work and I'm not hungry even a little bit all morning!

I guess I should have mentioned that, in the vanilla chai coffee mug, you should put some water....DUH!

Default Chicken Saagwala

I adapted this from a Weight Watchers recipe after falling in love with saagwala at an Indian restaurant. It calls for 2 fresh tomatoes instead of the tomato HNS. You could eliminate the HNS & add the tomatoes just before serving, just long enough to heat through rather than actually cooking. (I started making this after I'd started maintenance, and used Lipton cup-a-soup instead of tomatoes in a pinch one time, and it was good! So the HNS should work fine too.) It's supposed to be served over rice, could be put over 2-3 oz spaghetti squash instead since spinach cooks down so much. (My theory being that no one ever got fat from eating too much spinach or spaghetti squash.)

Chicken Saagwala

* 2 Tbsp olive oil, divided
* 4 tsp curry powder, mild variety
* 1 tsp ground coriander
* 1/2 tsp ground cumin
* 2 Tbsp ginger root, fresh, finely chopped
* 2 large garlic clove(s), finely chopped
* 1 pound uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes
* 1 tomato soup HNS
* 1/2 c water
* 10 oz spinach, baby leaves
* 1/2 tsp sea salt
* 1/4 cup water
* 2 Tbsp cilantro, fresh, chopped

Instructions

* Place 1 tablespoon of oil, curry powder, coriander, cumin, ginger and garlic in a large nonstick skillet; cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until toasted and fragrant, about 2 to 3 minutes.

* Add remaining tablespoon of oil and chicken to skillet; stir to coat with spiced oil.

* Add tomato HNS & 1/2 c water to skillet; cover skillet and cook for 10 minutes. Uncover skillet and stir to combine.

* Add spinach to skillet; cover and cook for 5 minutes more. Uncover skillet and stir to combine.

* Add salt, water and cilantro to skillet; simmer for 1 minute. Yields about 1 1/2 heaping cups per serving.

Default Gelatin Revisited

I finally picked up some plain Knox gelatin to try making my own HNS gelatin. I mixed one packet of gelatin with 1 cup of water (sprinkled the Knox over 1/4 c cold water, let it sit a bit, added the HNS & 3/4 c boiling water), actually added a bit more water realizing the recipe on the package was for making the "blocks" that are pretty thick. I think next time I'll use about 2 cups of water & 2 HNS to make 2 servings, that way it won't be quite so thick. It makes enough that for me, it's better as a snack than as part of a meal. But it tasted good - I used pineapple apricot HNS.

Default Yummy Pinto Beans

2 tsp minced garlic
1/8 c chopped green onion
1 can pinto beans drained and rinsed
1 chicken boullion HNS prepared with 1 c water
1 t. cumin
1 t. chilli powder (I like more)
1/2 t. ground pepper
I also added a large tsp. of crushed red pepper

so sautee the green onion and garlic for just a bit in a teaspoon of olive oil. add the beans and chicken boullion. Mix and then add spices. Taste to see if you want to add more spice. Next time I may add some fresh cilatro.

Boil to heat.

You are allowed 1/4 c at supper as your bread/starch. These are REALLY good in wraps (use romaine leaves for the outside) with taco flavored chicken, turkey or buffalo. You don't have to wrap them, just place in the romaine leaf and add veggies and salsa. You can pick it up like a chilli dog in the romaine leaf.

These were tasty and the boys loved them. You can make refried beans by putting them in a frying pan with a little oil and smashing with a fork.

I want to keep this close to the top so that I can find it....
so a new recipe.

Tuna Casserole
spaghetti squash
Tuna
green beans
Creamy Chicken and Veg HNS

Lightly coat a small casserole with cooking spray...add about 3 oz of squash, a serving of tuna and 1 oz of green beans. Prepare the HNS with about 1/2 c of water and pour over mix. Stir gently and let bake at 350 F uncovered for about 10-15 min until bubbly.

You can do a type of shepard's pie
mix Creamy chichen and veg HNS with 1 oz of green beans and 4 oz of browned ground buffalo. Make a 3 oz batch of Cauliflower (extra done) to blend into mock potatos. Top your mix. Bake in the oven at 350 F until Cauliflower lightly browns. This is easy to double of triple so you can feed a family of freeze ind. portions to eat as lunches.

Chicken and Brocolli Slaw Salad

I adapted this from my mom's recipe but it is lower in fat and carbs.

Salad
4oz brocolli slaw (has a few carrots in the premixed I just pick out)
4 oz iceberg lettuce finely chopped
4 oz cooked chicken breast diced (I use a little Butter Buds and some sodium free chicken boulion) (grill it or nuke it)
Mix these ingredients together and pour dressing over

Dressing
1 teas sodium free chicken boulion (Wyler's brand found at Wal-Mart) or you can use a portion of a Chicken HNS
1 teas apple cider vinegar
2 teas olive oil (I like light flavored)
1/2 teas splenda
1/2 onion powder
1/2 teas sea salt
Mix and pour over salad

Meta Slim Day 5 Lunch or Dinner

Chicken Omelete

1.5 oz chicken breast chopped and cooked
1 egg
1/2 oz grated cheese
4 oz chopped veggies Sauted with Pam or a little olive oil (I like green onion, tomatos, green pepper, mushrooms)
Mix together for an egg scramble or mix egg and cook like a traditional omelete. I like to use only 3 oz veggies and top with homemade salsa recipe below.

Meta Slim Day 11 Lunch

Grilled Tiliapa

4 oz Tiliapa
1 teas Olive Oil
1/2 teas crushed red pepper
1/2 teas Basil
1/2 tead ground pepper
1/2 teas sea salt
Or you could use your favorite Ms. Dash

Coat the Tilapa with the EEVO then sprinkle your seasonings. I like to get my grill real hot and I use a cast iron skillet (ones you see in mexican restaurants). Spray with Pam or use a little olive oil (you want to make sure it doesn't stick). Put fish in pan and turn to medium heat. Cook 4 min each side or more if your filet is thick).
Meta Slim Day 1 Dinner or Day 5 lunch

I like this with fresh steamed green beans and black beans (I can't find the time to cook a whole batch, so I use low sodium canned and just rinse).

Homemade Salsa

1 can no salt added diced tomatos (you can chop your own if you like (approx 12 oz reserve juice)
2 jalapenos chopped
2 oz chopped green onions
1 teas sea salt
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 handful chopped cilantro

Use as a raw veggie
Meta Slim Day 11 lunch or dinner
I pulse this in my food processor until I get the consistancy I like (chunky). You can use this with your melba toast like chips and salsa, or top fish, Taco salad. YUM YUM!

Shrimp and Green Beans

In a pan saute some garlic (some say garlic is authorized, some don't) in olive oil, then add a chicken buillon supplement mixed in 1/2 cup of water, add Butter Buds, then add shrimp (I use pre-peeled, pre-cooked, tail-off) and cut green beans (from frozen - thawed in microwave). Once heated through, top with parmesan cheese (if lunch - cheese is o.k.) If dinner - just add garlic melba rounds on the side.

Just make sure and measure out your portions of protein and veggies before adding to the pan - make 1 or 2 servings at a time, or more - and just adjust your HNS servings as well.

This is soooo flavorful, just a great meal.
