Height: 5'5"

Default Low Carb Chili

3 lbs lean ground beef
2 cans of beans, your choice
1 28 oz can crushed tomatoes in puree
1 large green pepper, chopped
2 large onions, chopped
2-3 garlic cloves, minced
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil

Spice Mix:
3 T chili powder
2 T cumin, ground
1 T coriander, ground
1 T dried oregano
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
1 T unsweetened cocoa powder
5 tsp salt

Mix the seasonings together to make the spice mix. Heat about
half the olive oil in a large pot. Add the onions and peppers and
saute over medium heat for 7 minutes. Add the rest of the oil to
the pot, then stir in the spice mix and the garlic. Lower the heat a
little and stir for 2 minutes. Add the beans (with liquid) and
tomatoes. Bring to a boil. Crumble the beef into the mixture.
Cover and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Leave
lid off for last 15 minutes to thicken, if desired.

Makes 9 servings, each having 30 grams of protein and 12 grams of
carbohydrate.

Default Peanut Butter Protein Balls

Found this recipe on the internet:

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup sugar-free peanut butter
  • 4 scoops (or 1 and 1/3 cups) whey protein powder -- most are low in carbs, but check -- any flavor
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Artificial sweetener to taste, about 1-1˝ cup (some protein powders have sweeteners as well)
Preparation:
Put all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix all at once. A mixer works great for this, but a food processor would probably be fine as well, or just a spoon. Then roll into balls. If you like, roll in crushed nuts. I've mixed almond meal with powdered erythritol and that worked well as a coating.

For sweetener, I use the most concentrated liquid sucralose (Splenda). In the past, I made the mistake of trying to add too much liquid in the form of Da Vinci's syrups for flavoring. To my dismay, it is possible to turn the whole thing into a ropey, gluey mess. I never figured out what the chemical reaction was, but it happened to me more than once. On the other hand, protein powders are fine added to shakes, so it couldn't have been just the liquid. It must have been the exact combination of fat, protein and liquid. If any food chemists have an idea about what might have happened, let me know!

Makes approximately 16 balls about one inch in diameter.

Nutritional Information (no covering): Assuming zero-carb sweetener, each ball has 3 grams effective carbohydrate plus 1 gram fiber, 9 grams protein, and 118 calories.

Default Lime and Cilantro Viniagrette

  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves, whole
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tablespoon egg substitute, liquid -- (or 1 egg yolk)
  • 2 teaspoons prepared mustard
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1 pinch salt
Put everything but half the cilantro and all of the oil in a blender.
Process until smooth. With the blender running, slowly pour in the oil
until it's well blended. Chop the remaining cilantro very fine and stir into
the dressing. The cilantro taste is very strong. Start with just 2T if you like.

The viniagrette is an excellent marinade for ribs or fish. If you like a
stronger lime flavor(for marinades) add 1T lime zest to the blender as well.
