Height: 5'7 1/2"


Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

• 1 1/2 lbs. ground lamb or 3/4 lb each lamb and lean ground top round
(I used extra lean ground round but I suspect you could also used ground turkey w/ good results)
• 1/2 cup rice or bulghour, or a combination
• 1/4 cup green bell pepper [chopped fine]
• Cayenne pepper to taste
• 1 teaspoon basil
• 1 teaspoon black pepper or to taste
• 1 teaspoon salt or to taste
• 1 medium yellow onion [chopped]
•Combine the above ingredients and gently knead into a dough. A little water may be added to ease the blending.
• 1 large head of cabbage
• 1 cup water or 1 can Swanson'sฎ chicken broth or beef broth
• 8 oz crushed tomatoes or tomato sauce
• juice of 2 lemons
• Core 1 or 2 large heads of cabbage and immerse in boiling water until the leaves wilt and become soft. Separate the leaves and cut out the hard veins. The very large leaves may be cut in half. Take a large teaspoon of the filling and place on the cabbage leaf and roll up turning in the ends. Take a few of the large tougher leaves and line the bottom of a covered casserole. Place the rolled cabbage side by side and layer upon layer. Pour over the crushed tomatoes or tomato sauce, lemon juice and broth or 1 cup of water. Cover and cook in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 1 hour.

Default Tuna Salad Nicoise

Since I'll be making this for the week ahead, I thought I'd share the recipe with you ladies. I LOVE this salad!

4 cups small red-skinned potatoes, boiled, cooled and diced
4 cups whole green beans, fresh or frozen, cooked and cooled
2 tomatoes, chopped (or you can sub. sun-dried or cherry)
16 Greek olives, pitted and chopped
4 cans chunk tuna in water, drained

Divide into 4 equal portions, toss each with 2 T. dressing. Chill before serving, then enjoy! Can also add chopped hard-boiled egg whites to boost the protein.

3 T. white wine vinegar
4 T. olive oil (or incorporate your flaxseed or Udo's oil here)
1 T. Dijon mustard
1 clove garlic, mashed w/salt
Pepper to taste.

newest lifesaving recipie!

500g cottage cheese (~50g protien)
2 small/medium potatoes (2 portions)
2 egg whites
3 slices FF cheese
1 large onion.

chop onion and caramelize it in a frying pan with 1tsp oil.

Mix eggs and cottage cheese with onion powder, salt and pepper.

peel and wash potatoes. slice very very thinly into discs. lightly oil a casserole dish with olive oil. cover bottom with a layer of potato discs. top with a layer of CC and another of potatoes. break up 1 slice of cheese and spread it over the potatoes. repeat until all CC and potatoes are used up. Top with remaining cheese and spread onions over top. bake covered in foil at 200C for 40mins, then remove foil and bake for another 20mins or so to let the water evaporate.

to me, it tastes quite a bit like perogies *drool* and you cant go wrong with a bit of cheese and onion lol

I would defiantely consider adding spinach or other veggies to this.

3 Increase heat under broth mixture to high and drop

Chicken meatballs (that taste like beef!)

2-3 defrosted chicken breasts
1 small/medium onion
2tbsp tomato paste
Hy's seasoning (Lawreys salt type thingy) to taste
chili powder (i like chili so i add couple good shakes)
1/8tsp ranch salad dressing mix
1 eggwhite
2tbsp mashed potatoes (or 2tsbp breadcrumbs, with 4tbsp milk added)
mushrooms, cooked (or canned) and purre้d (about 1/4 cup)

Peel onion and blitz in your food processer until its minced (very small bits) add chicken, and spices. Pulse until desired consistancy (i like mine relitivly smooth). Mix in egg and potatoes/soggy crumbs and mushrooms. Wet hands. Form into small patties or balls. Cook in minimal oil or nonstick sprayed pan until FULLY cooked (the tomato paste makes it stay pink, so I just cook the heck out of mine until I KNOW they are done.) on medium heat (to prevent burning.

TO me these tasted just like the meatballs my bf's mom makes (and she makes the best meatballs ever!) and they are pretty clean as is, and easily modified for the "hard core clean" eater

Good thing about meatballs is they are easy to spice up, whereas I find that even marinating chicken sometimes doesnt make it intersting enough for me. Try using other spices (italian, oriental with green onions instead of regular etc) for variation.

•Here is a very good recipe that I made tonight... D(13) is on a vegetarian kick... She loved this...

Tofu Parmigiana - makes 4 servings....
• 1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
• 5 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
• 2 teaspoons dried oregano, divided
• salt to taste
• ground black pepper to taste
• 1 (12 ounce) package firm tofu
• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
• 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
• 1 clove garlic, minced
• 4 ounces shredded mozzarella cheese

• In a small bowl, combine bread crumbs, 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, 1 teaspoon oregano, salt, and black pepper.
• Slice tofu into 1/4 inch thick slices, and place in bowl of cold water. One at a time, press tofu slices into crumb mixture, turning to coat all sides.
• Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Cook tofu slices until crisp on one side. Drizzle with a bit more olive oil, turn, and brown on the other side.
• Combine tomato sauce, basil, garlic, and remaining oregano. Place a thin layer of sauce in an 8 inch square baking pan. Arrange tofu slices in the pan. Spoon remaining sauce over tofu. Top with shredded mozzarella and remaining 3 tablespoons Parmesan.
• Bake at 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) for 20 min.

The above is the exact recipe, I modified it by firstly dredging the tofu in flour then egg, then the bread crumb mixture... I did not fry them I baked them on a cookie sheet... I had more tomato sauce than what they asked for and I used LF mozzarella cheese...

It was really good... Maybe a little high in fat but it tasted like Eggplant or Veal
Parmisian and D loved it too... Imagine!!

Wow, this is a great thread full of great soundig recipies. I'm working my way through them and I'm so impressed just how good cottage cheese can taste.

There is one thing I just have to mention though. Some of the recipes suggest preheating a nonstick pan and some even say to smoking hot. If I did that in my home my birds would be dead in a matter of seconds. Overheated teflon emits very toxic fumes as all bird owners know. 20/20 did a segment on it a while back and while the Dupoint representative played down the fact that we all have teflon in our blood streams because the popularity of the product, even she warned against overheating teflon for health reasons. Be careful. We do so much to improve our health with clean eating we don't want to sabatoge the efforts with a little unknown detail.

Default Questions about this thread

I have briefly read most of the messages and there are some things that are referred to that I am wondering what they are. Could someone tell me what "BFL" and "Authourized" are referring to. Also, what is Krista Smashes website address?
