1/2 cup water

beat yolks and add stevia, cornstarch, zest, water and slowly add lemon juice to avoid curdling the eggs. Microwave for 2-3 until thickened.

In meantime, stiffly beat egg white until form a heavy meringue. Add 2 pkg of stevia.

Carefully fold hot lemon filling into meringue - Pour into serving dishes and chill.

It is quite tart, so next time I am going to decrease amount of lemon juice.
Thank you Sister Kate for the recipe.

Default substitute for PASTA

New to the program. On my 2nd week. During week one I was dying for some carbs. So I made a great tomato sauce with garlic, celery, Italian seasoning, Tomato (my 2X a week choice) and chopped chicken. (leftover from a roasted chicken from Costco)
For the pasta, I took large mushrooms and finely shredded them. I kept them raw and then covered with the hot spaghetti sauce at serving time. The sauce warmed the mushrooms but didnt cook them. It tasted so much like Pasta!! Best meal I've had so far.

Yippee.
Umm...I will definitely have to try this! Thanks!

pickle recipe (makes 6 jars)

8.5 cups of water
2.25 cups of white vinegar
.5 cups sea salt

mix together in a large pot and boil. remove from heat.

fill jars with spices of your choosing. i like to do different flavors, so here are some spice suggestions:

fresh dill
black peppercorn
garlic cloves
dried red chili peppers
coriander (whole seeds)

pack pickling cucumbers on top of spices in the jars up to the neck as tightly as possible. you can do slices, spears, chips, halves or wholes.

pour hot brine into the jars of packed cucumbers to about .5" below the top of the jar. put the lids back on the mason jars.

place the sealed jars into a pot of water just up to the neck of the jars. bring to a slight boil and make sure the the lids have sealed (test by making sure that the lids can no longer be pushed in with your finger on the top). remove from water and let cool. store in a dark place that is not too warm or cold for anywhere from 3 weeks to 3 months. the longer they sit, the better, but they do taste good by week 3... just a bit more crunchy.

Default Broccoli

last night I was looking to do something "different' with my broccoli.

I steamed the broccoli
Put it in the food processor and bleneded until it was smooth.
I added a little chicken broth for mixing.
Put it in a baking dish and baked it until it was bubbly around the edges.
It was good.
Like mashed cauliflower only with broccoli!

a couple of drops of orange extract in the chocolate drink makes it taste like Baskin Robbins Mandarin Chocolate. Yum, Yum.

Default Chicken and Broccoli Casserole

Note: Makes 2 IP meals

Boil the chicken breast until just cooked. Remove from water and chop into bite sized pieces. Place broccoli and chicken in a 9x9 glass pan. Shake up your soup packet with 6 oz of water and pour over chicken and broccoli.

Bake @ 375F for 25-30 mins (or until broccoli is tender and soup is bubbly).

Second portion can be refrigerated and warmed up later.

Default Crustless Mini-Quiche

ok, i made up my own crustless mini quiche recipe because the other post uses tofu (i'm a vegetarian and love tofu, but i don't eat it on this diet). this recipe is for the meal where you eat your own protein. it covers both the protein and the vegetables for the meal.

.5 cups liquid egg whites
1 whole egg
1.75 cups mushrooms
.25 cups green onions
.25 tsp sea salt
1 tsp EVOO
dash of black pepper
mrs. dash (i use the garlic and herb - salt free)

heat oven to 350

chop mushrooms and green onions and add to a pan with 1tsp EVOO. cook covered on low until soft. remove lid, turn up heat and cook until the water evaporates.

in a mixing bowl, add .5 cups liquid egg whites with one whole egg and beat. add .25 tsp sea salt, a pinch of black pepper, and mrs. dash. add the cooked mushrooms and green onions to this mixture.

spray a small muffin pan with a light spray of olive oil. pour egg mixture into muffin pan, filling each cup about half way (should make about 5-6). place muffin pan in the oven and bake for about 30 min, or until egg is slightly browned on top and a toothpick comes out clean from the center.
