Default Katie's Italian Chicken

One of my consultants gave me this recipe. I tried it out this weekend and it was pretty darn tasty!

1lb Chicken breast
10oz raw tomatoes, chopped
2oz raw green oinions, chopped
1 Tomato Basil HNS, mixed w/ 4oz water
2 tsp Italian Seasoning
2tsp Garlic Powder
2 garlic cloves, minced
1tsp Sea Salt
2tsp Black pepper
2tbsp Olive Oil
1tsp Oregano

Rub chicken breast with olive oil and seasonings. Put chicken in crock pot on LOW setting with remaining ingredients. Let cook for up to 8 hours, until chicken is cooked thoroughly.

Replaces: Protein & veggies at lunch or dinner

Serving options: At lunch melt 1oz Provolone cheese on top with 4oz tomatoes. At dinner top with Melba toast (processed into bread crumbs) with 4oz. tomatoes.

My substituations were - instead of the tomato basil HNS, I used a small can of no salt added tomato sauce. I don't like green onions, so I didn't use them. I didn't have garlic cloves, even if I did, I wouldn't know how to mince them - so I just used extra garlic powder. I also used the salt free Mrs. Dash Tomato Basil seasoning and added sliced zucchini.

Default Oriental Green Beans

I haven't tried these yet - but maybe tonight.

1pkg SteamFresh Green Beans (or other microwaveable green beans)
Garlic Powder & Crushed Red Pepper flakes - to taste.

Cook the green beans as directed. In a skillet, heat a tablespoon of olive oil on high heat. Add cooked grean beans, garlic powder & crushed red pepper. Toss around and then add a splash of low sodium soy sauce.

**Update** I made these last night and they were very tasty. One of my new fav's.

Hope this isn't a repeat....

Below is a receipe from a local chief on our program who has lost over 50lbs named Stephen. He created a reeipe for you called MRC Cake. It is Yummy!!!! Enjoy!! Big Thank You To Stephen


MRC Cake
1/2 tsp Cream of Tartar
1/2 tsp Vanilla
2TBSP Water - body tmep
3pk Sweetener
3 Egg whites - room temp or so
1 pk Pudding mix - can use vanilla or chocolate
Oven at 350 degrees. Fresh eggs will separate easier, but not necessary. Room temp
on the eggs or close, but make sure they are not cold. Make sure there is no yolk at all. Any will
cause the whites to not fluff.
Dissolve the cream of tartar in the vanilla. Add in the water and sweetener. Mix to make
sure everything is dissolved. Add in the whites. Whip it, and whip it good. You want the whites to
develope stiff peaks. That means that you will whip them until you think that they are ready, then
whip them some more. If they turn back into a liquid, then you whipped them too much.
You can spray the pan you are going to bake them in if you want. This will make sure that
they come out clean, but it might crisp the bottoms some. Fill mini molds, six of them, with the
batter. They will look like there is too much in them, but that will be fine and make sure you do not
squish the batter down in the mold.
Bake for 15 minutes. The vanilla ones take a bit less time and will brown more, but if you
don't bake them long enough they will stick in the mold and go flat.
Serve with berries or as is.
Chocolate Icing
1 scoop Super Chocolate Drink
3 pk Sweetener
1/2 tsp Vanilla
4 TBSP Water
Mix drink and sweeteners. Add in vanilla and 1 TBSP of water at a time. Mix until water
is absorbed and then add another tablespoon. Drizzle on cake.

In making this by the receipt - it doesn't tell you when/where to fold in the chocolate...but that part is important :-)

Default Splenda!

Hi All,

Not sure if you aware of how Splenda may be increasing your weight. There is a huge amount of evidence on this, as well as on its significant toxicity.

This is just one resource of many :

I just was told by the board that I had to remove the link I posted because I have not posted enough ... hmmm. Okay, you can search engine Duke Unversity study on splenda... for starters.

Found this on Whole Food's site ~ 5 Minute Brussels Sprouts

Ingredients:
1 lb Brussels sprouts
Mediterranean Dressing

3 TBS extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp lemon juice
2 medium cloves garlic, chopped or pressed
Sea salt and black pepper to taste
Optional: 1 TBS dijon mustard, 1 TBS minced parsley

Directions:

Fill the bottom of the steamer with 2 inches of water.
While steam is building up in steamer, cut Brussels sprouts into quarters and let sit for at least 5 minutes to bring out their hidden health benefits.
Chop or press garlic and let sit for at least 5 minutes to bring out their health-promoting properties.

Steam Brussels sprouts for 5 minutes.

Transfer to a bowl. Toss Brussels sprouts, while they are still hot, with the ingredients for the Mediterranean Dressing. (Mediterranean Dressing does not need to be made separately.)
Serves 2

I made it tonight with the Dijon and I thought it spruced them up well. Try it on green beans also!

Mix tomato supplement and next 5 ingredients in blender. Let stand.Pour over chicken breasts and bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes

TIP : Can also add cooked, shredded chicken breast to the sauce for a shredded barbecue chicken.. Place on top of toast at dinner.

My note.. The chicken was shredded and kept warm in a crockpot, and there were corn tortillas to put it into ..
Serves 2

Tried this tonight and it was pretty good. I reduced the meat and added some thinly sliced cheese to the top when it came out of the oven and served with grilled zucchini. It was a good way to use up some leftover turkey! Thanks Patzi.

I had my heart set on making the chili recipe in the MRC cookbook tonight until I realized I already had my creamy today at lunch. I found a recipe for Turkey Marsala and modified it:

I sauteed some garlic in olive oil then cooked some ground turkey. I used another pan to saute mushrooms and green onions. I added this to the turkey. I seasoned it with Italian seasonings and some red wine vinegar and added some pinto beans. I covered it and let steam for a few minutes.

It wasn't bad at all!

Default Snickerdoodle Pudding

My roommate brought home a package of snickdoodles yesterday, and I had to fight myself to keep from digging right in to them. So, I made some Vanilla Creme Pudding (creamy supplement) and sprinkled in some cinnamon... fixed my craving!

Any lunch ideas that don't involve chicken or salad? I'm so burnt out on both that I never finish my lunch. Plus, salads are hard to eat in a 20 min teacher lunch
