Sweet, I appreciate your kind words. I am fairly new on the boards and I am often afraid to ask a stupid question or give wrong information or bad advice.

I did want to share something that Silver shared with me.


This site is AMAZING! I made the Cream Cheese Clouds and the Chocolate Coconut Bark this weekend. Love them both. For the clouds I used Almond extract instead of vanilla (maybe but in a little too much). For the bark I could only find 100% or 60%. I used the 100% Chocolate. It made for a less sweet bark but still good. I also lightly sprinkled coconut shreds on top before I put it in the freezer.

Another personal snack idea: I go to the bulk candy isle at my grocery store (they also have bulk nuts). I get whole almonds and walnuts (only about 3-4 carbs per serving) and peanut butter chips (about 3 carbs) and mix them together for a snack. Yummy!

Default Vegetarian Chili

I found and modified this recipe and made it tonight. It turned out very yummy!

Vegetarian Chili

-1 large bell pepper (green or red.. I used green), seeded, and chopped
-1 medium squash, diced
-4 oz (about 1 1/2 cups) of fresh mushrooms, chopped
-1 tablespoon olive oil
-3 cloves of garlic, minced
-1 large onion, chopped
-1 can diced, seasoned tomatoes, with liquid
-1 can red kidney beans, drained
-1 cup canned corn, drained
-Chili seasoning (I used Season All)

-Heat oil over medium heat in a large pot. Add cloves of garlic and chopped onions. Sauté for approximately two minutes.
-Add peppers, mushrooms, and squash. Sauté for a few more minutes, or until vegetables are tender, stirring constantly.
-Add tomatoes with juices, drained kidney beans, drained corn, and seasoning.
-Stir until combined, lower heat, and simmer for 15 minutes.

I like to make portabella pizza's. They are really good and a nice twist to your every day pizza. I am sorry if it has been mentioned before. It's so good and it's good for you!

4 large Cap portobello mushrooms (stem removed)
1/2 cup pizza sauce, spaghettie sauce or 1 cup diced tomatoes
1 1/2 Cup mozzarella cheese (low fat works fine)
1/4 cup diced basil
Oregano to taste
(you can add fresh veggies of your choice for a healthier and more fulfilling meal)

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Place the mushroom on a baking sheet, and bake for 5 minutes in the preheated oven. (this helps to harden the cap as they tend to get a bit watery) Remove from the oven, and spread pizza sauce in the cup of the mushroom caps. Top with cheese. sprinkle basil & oregano on top. (If you are adding veggies, add veggies first, then cheese) Bake for an additional 20 minutes, or until cheese is melted and golden. Enjoy!

My fiance was skeptical...until he ate some. Now he is hooked! He is always asking me to make them on the weekends. I love them because they are low carb, low calorie and low fat. My 2 year old loves them too! It's recipes like this I love because the whole family can enjoy. I have found ways to make healthier delicious meals for the whole family and this is definitly one of them. Give it a try!

Sloppy Joe Meatloaf

olive oil spray
2/3C old-fashioned oats
1/3+1/4+1/4C canned sloppy joe sauce
2large egg whites, lightly beaten
1lb 96% lean ground beef
1/3C minced green bell pepper
1/4C finely chopped sweet onion
1 clove fresh garlic, minced

Preheat oven to 350*. Lightly mist a 9x5x3" nonstick loaf pan with olive oil spray.

In a medium mixing bowl, combine the oats, 1/3c + 1/4c of the sloppy joe sauce, and egg whites. Let the mixture stand for 3mins or so until the oats begin to soften. Add the beef, bell pepper, onion and garlic. Mix until well combined.

Transfer into prepared pan and spread so top is flat. Spread the remaining 1/4C sloppy joe sauce evenly over the top. Bake for 30mins. Let sit for 10mins, cut into 8 slices and serve.

Servings:4 Calories:225/serving

Cheesy Stuffed Chicken Breast
1/4C shredded low-fat Monterey Jack cheese
1/2C diced fire-roasted tomatoes (reg diced tomatoes are fine!)
1/2t red chile flakes (optional)
2T chopped cilantro
4 (4oz) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
3T white whole wheat flour
1/4t ground black pepper
2t olive oil

In a small bowl- combine cheese, tomatoes, chile flakes, cilantro.

Place 1 chicken breast on a cutting board and hold it flat with your hand. Using a slender sharp knife, carefully cut a horizontal pocket in the side of the breast making the pocket as large as you can without cutting through the other side. Repeat for each chicken breast. Spoon 1/4 of the cheese-tomatoe mixture into each pocket and close with a toothpick.

In a shallow dish, combine the flour, black pepper. Dredge the stuffed chicken into the flour mixture, coating on all sides.

In a large non-stick skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until just tender (about 4mins on each side). Remove toothpicks and garnish with cilantro.

Servings: 4 Calories per serving: 200

White Chicken Chili (the chicken is white meat, the chili is not white )
1lb boneless, skinless chicken or turkey or lean pork tenderloin (i've only made this with ckn)
4 1/2C cooked great northern beans (i use 3 cans of Busch's brand- just dump them in a strainer and rinse off)
2C fat free, low-sodium chicken broth
2C thick and chunky salsa
1C reduced-fat mozzarella cheese
Chopped Cilantro (optional)

Cook and shred the chicken, set aside. In a large saucepan, mix together the beans, broth, and salsa. Heat through and add extra broth if desired. Stir in the meat and cheese and top with cilantro. Serve hot.

Makes 8 servings. 230calories/serving

Another simple side dish is using great northern beans and adding 2TBSP of Dr. Pepper BBQ Sauce (lower in sugar than most brands). Tastes good and a lot healthier than traditional baked beans/pork and beans.

Default Roasted Brussells sprouts--good as potato chips!

Halve brussells sprouts. Place them in a bowl and add about 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Add salt and pepper to taste. (I like Lowry's seasoned salt) Place on cookie sheet. Bake at 425 for 30-35 minutes. They are so easy and so good!
