Hi everyone,
I'll post a few recipes I found from previous threads and the current one. (None are mine and some may be from the cookbook) When I first found this site I started going through the first thread and would copy and paste info into Word as I was reading....hope it helps.


Cheeseburger Soup

16oz. ground lean turkey breast
6 oz. green onions - chopped
10oz. celery - chopped
1 1/3 tsp. dried basil
1 1/3 tsp. dried parsley
4 cups hot water
4 envelopes MRC Cream of Chicken and Veggies Supplement
6 oz. Cheddar Cheese - cubed

In a stock pot, combine water with the Cream of Chicken Supplement. Bring to a boil and add veggies. Let simmer until celery is cooked. While that is cooking, brown the turkey and add to stock pot. Stir in basil and parsley (I didn't add either of these because I didn't have them). Bring to a boil, simmer about 5 minutes. Stir in cheese. Heat through until melted but don't bring it to a boil.

Servings: 4
Meal: Lunch
Beginning: Day 11
Replaces: 6oz. Protein, 1 creamy supplement, 2oz. cooked veggies

4 oz. cottage cheese
1 Vanilla Cream Pudding HNS (mixed with some water, but not the full 4 oz.)
1/2 cup berries (or whatever fruit portion you are allowed)

I use frozen blackberries, but fresh blueberries are really good, too. Also, berries help in releasing water weight!
(remember - these aren't my recipes, but I'm including extra info others put in with their recipes) :-)

Spicy Tuna Burgers

Serves 2
This easy tuna burger has a very spicy flavor with a zing of lemon. It came out perfect the first try.


Ingredients:

1 can solid white albacore tuna, drained
1 large egg white
1 teaspoon lemon-pepper Mrs. Dash seasoning
1 tablespoon red pepper flakes


Directions: Mix all ingredients together in small bowl. Form two patties and cook on a pre-heated non-stick pan sprayed with non-stick cooking spray until tuna patties are slightly browned. Served on beds of lettuce (low carb) and/or on slices of 40cal bread

Try a dab of Dijonaise for a little extra flavor.

Also, for a lunch, you can make apple chips. These are so simple and CRUNCH.
Slice an apple (uncored) into 1/8 in slices thru the core.
Remove seeds. I use a mandelin cutter for this, but you can do it by hand. Try to make the slices uniform.
Put a piece of wax paper on a cookie sheet and sprinkle one pack of splenda (or the like) on the paper.
Set the apple slices on the paper. Do not overlap or they will bake together. Put in the oven at 225 F for about 1.5 hour.
Remove immediately from the cookie sheet and put on a cooling rack.

They will be crunchy like potatos. Feel free to sprinkle with splenda and cinnamon or curry powder before baking. They are very good and easy to be in a salad or beside a romaine wrap for lunch.

MEXICAN PIZZA (makes two pizzas:-)

2-50 calorie flour tortillas
10 oz ground turkey
2 tsp taco seasoning
1 tomato supplement dissolved in about 1 cup of water
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp chili powder
2 tbsp Walden Farms ketchup
ICBINB spray butter

Spray Tops and bottoms of tortillas with ICBINB, place on baking sheet and bake a 400 degrees for 4-5 minutes, just until crisp. Meanwhile, brown ground turkey in sauce pan, adding spices and tomato supplement when meat is mostly browned. Let simmer until juice is mostly absorbed (don't want it to be too juicy- it will run off tortilla onto pan). Divide up mixture between tortillas. Sprinkle each pizza with 1 oz of cheese. Bake at 400 degrees until cheese is melted and and mixture is hot. Hubby likes to top his with salsa. You could make a homemade salsa recipe and put it on the pizza if you wished.

It replaces 6 oz of protein and starch/bread. You could reduce meat and cheese for 4 oz portion. If you add salsa it could count as your veggie, too.

Short Little Ideas

*Deviled eggs - using horseradish and a little mustard, salt & pepper

*Peach Mango (Liquid) HNS in the blender with about 7 ice cubes

*Lemon flavored creamy and mix it with frozen strawberries and a little splenda

*Tortilla and put cheese and veggies on it and maybe some lean meat and then broil it for a pizza-like treat.

Ice Cream Alternative – from txrose3
I took 2 pks of the vanilla pudding & added a can of diet orange soda, mixed well, then filled one of those popsicle trays with the mixture & stuck it in the freezer. Was pretty good. Sort of a cross between orange sherbert & a dreamsicle.

Breakfast Casserole – suggested by SouthernGal08
8 slices 40-calorie bread
6 eggs
1 pound ground turkey breast (cooked)
4 oz. cheddar cheese shredded
I Can't Believe It's Not Butter spray
Salt and pepper

Coat a 9 by 13 glass pan with Pam spray. Put slices of bread down and spray each slice with 5 pumps of "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" spray. In a separate bowl, beat 6 eggs with salt and pepper. Add mixture on top of the bread. Add cooked turkey breast on top, then sprinkle with cheese. Place in oven and bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes or until the eggs are cooked.

* Serves 8 on the beige menu. Serves 10 on the green menu (not sure about this - there are only 8 slices of bread?)
* Replaces protein and bread.

Green French Fries – suggested by Nan11

1 bag frozen green string beans
Favorite seasoning (garlic, Mrs. Dash, Lemon Pepper)
Pre-heat oven to 375
Spray Pam on cookie sheet
Place however many green beans you want on the sheet
Sprinkle with Seasoning
Bake in over for 30-45 minutes (you want the frozen beans to go from frozen to wilty to crispy, so keep an eye on them after about 20 minutes)
When they begin to look 'crispy', turn on your broiler and broil until they begin to look like they are curling (like french fries)
Remove and eat.

Better Than Ever Pancakes – suggested by MegNut63
1 slice bread
1 egg
2 oz. cottage cheese
2 tbsp. Vanilla supplement
To Taste: Cinnamon or Nutmeg or maple extract

Toast bread then break into pieces and place in food processor or blender. Grind to crumbs. Add remaining ingredients and blend smooth (it will still be a little grainy). Pour into heated skillet. When finished, sprinkle on a packet or two of Splenda.
"Maple" Syrup

4 Tbsp Splenda
1/4 cup water
1 tsp. Maple extract

Bring to a boil in pan, then simmer for 5 minutes or until thick. Use 2 tsp per serving.



Brownie Bites – suggested by SouthernGal08
(2 servings)

Take 2 packets of the Double Chocolate pudding (vanilla creme works great too) and pour into a bowl. Take out one or two spoonfuls of the dry powder and set aside. Mix the pudding with just a little water - enough to make it stick together so that you can shape it with your hands. Roll the dough into bite-sized balls in your hands, then roll into the dry powder you set aside. Yummy!

Sometimes I mix the chocolate pudding for the center, then roll it into a little bit of the vanilla creme dry powder! Very tasty!

Spicy Tuna Burgers – from 3FC message board
Serves: 2

Ingredients:

1 can solid white albacore tuna, drained
1 large egg white
1 teaspoon lemon-pepper Mrs. Dash seasoning
1 tablespoon red pepper flakes

Directions: Mix all ingredients together in small bowl. Form two patties and cook on a preheated non-stick pan sprayed with non-stick cooking spray until tuna patties are slightly browned. Served on beds of lettuce (low carb) and/or on slices of low-calorie bread.

Try a dab of Dijonnaise for a little extra flavor.


Cheesy Spinach Chicken – suggested by Michelle127
4 oz of spinach
4oz of cottage cheese
2oz of chicken.

Mix it together and nuke for 4 minutes and voila - lunch or dinner. It was good! I have had such a hard time at lunch and this is going to help immensely!

First nuke your frozen spinach about 4 minutes or so. SQUEEZE out the water. I put it in a colander and pressed it with a fork. (It was still too watery...) Then I added the cottage cheese and chicken and nuked for 4 minutes. I added pepper and chopped up grape tomatoes. The CC melts and it looks pretty - all Christmasy. It was very good - though a tad bland. I'm not sure what spice it needs. Something tangy. I'd also add a smidge of LF cheese. FYI - it's 6oz of protein cuz I'm a big girl! Most of you are at 4 oz. I'd cut the CC to 3oz and 1oz of chicken. *this is one of my favorite recipes!!*

Broccoli Cheese Chicken Soup
One package of cream of chicken soup HNS
1 serving of cooked, cubed chicken (4 or 6oz depending on your plan)
1 serving (8oz) of broccoli, cooked (steamed) - the recipe called for 8oz, but 4oz is ok too if that what you want to do since its cooked
Shredded Cheese - optional

Mix the soup to the package specifications, add in the chicken and broccoli and cheese (microwave it if needed - I use left overs for this soup alot of the time). Eat up This is one of my favorite go-to easy meals. Technically if it's lunch, add fruit... it it's dinner, take out the cheese and add bread.

HNS Jello - Ok...I'm guessing at this one ladies and donuts. I didn't have any knox at home to read and I didn't write the recipe down, of course...so here is my best shot at it. Mix the knox to package requirements (which should end up with about 8oz of water...4oz boiling and 4oz cold). Stir in the HNS package. Chill and serve. If memory serves, its a TON of jello to eat in one sitting, which is just A-OK with me. I too, prefer to eat my HSN...way more filling...but I recommend this for a snack, not with a meal...it's too filling for use with a meal. If any one tries this one, let us know if it worked. I think its the same as making knox gelatin with juice, which is on the package I think...sorry i can't be more exact. But, both Hubby and I liked our HNS this way.

parmesean crusted chicken - Alright here is another yummy recipe that I forgot to add...

Thawed, boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 egg
parmesean cheese (the kind in the shaker that you put on pizza)
seasonings

Beat the egg and put into a dish (I use a pie pan). Put "some" parmesean cheese and your seasonings (I like McCormick's Garlic Herb) into another dish. Dip the chicken into the egg wash on both sides, then cover it in the parmesean mix. It should look "breaded". From this point you can either bake the chicken on heat some olive oil in a pan and "fry" the chicken. This is a really yummy way to fix the run of the mill boring chicken breast. When you are done cooking the chicken, weigh it. Because the cheese is on the meat it'll weigh together, so you don't have to worry about having more protein than you should. Again technically, this should be a lunch I suppose since it has cheese, but we eat it for dinner all the time and I still lose my weight, so whatever you choose to do with that is good.

Every Sunday I have cottage cheese with about 1-2 tsp of dry Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing seasoning. I mix it up and yum!!!!! Salt craving solved!


Also for salt cravings:
Parmesan Crunch
I think this is in the cookbook, but this is how I made it last night.
Spray bottom of frying pan with ICBIN Butter Spray. Spread 2-3 oz (or however much you need to make up your protein) on bottom of pan. Heat on medium heat. When Parmesan become solidified and slightly brown on bottom, flip over and slightly brown other side. Cut into strips or eat it whole. Satisfies potato chip craving every time.


Poultry Cauliflower Soup

I came up with this after looking at all the other soups in the cookbook.
16 oz bag of cauliflower
12 oz cooked chicken or turkey breast meat
2 packets chicken bouillon HNS

Add 1 1/2 cups of water to cauliflower. Add both chicken bouillon packets. Heat to boiling then simmer for 10 minutes. Add poultry. Simmer for about 20 more minutes. You probably want to add some MRS. Dash to spice it up and maybe 1/4 cup diced green onions. I am going to try Mrs. Dash Tomato and Basil in it. I can't have a lot of spicy stuff so I eat it bland. I serve it when most of the water has evaporated. It is soooo filling! You can dip your Melba Toast in it at supper time for "crackers"

By the Way, my Sunday paper actually had a coupon for Melba Toast in it this week! NEVER seen that before!

1 teaspoon orange extract

Originally these said to eat the whole serving, but that is too much oatmeal.
All but the Bruffins: eat half batch.....1/2 protein supplement, 2 oz. protein, bread/starch.

For the Bruffins: eat half batch......1 creamy supplements, 2 oz. protein, and bread/starch.

So remember to add a little more protein and 1/2 a supplement! also, I tried these in the waffle iron and they are great. makes a couple waffles and you can eat them going out the door.
