WOE: low carb - 1400 calories
I found this recipe on the SkinnyTaste website:

Turkey Sausage, Kale and White Bean Soup

Gina's Weight Watcher Recipes
Servings: 4 • Serving Size: 2 cups • Calories: 253 • Old Points: 5 pts • Points+: 7 pts

1.25 lb homemade turkey sausage meat
2 tsp olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 bunch kale - rinsed, leaves removed from the ribs & rough chopped
1 cup Cannellini or Northern beans - drained and rinsed
4 cups fat free chicken stock
2 cups water
1 small pinch dried red pepper flakes (optional)
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste

Heat oil over medium-high heat in a medium sized pot. Add sausage meat breaking it up with a spatula or wooden spoon into large chunks. When completely cooked, add garlic and saute for 2 - 3 minutes (careful not to let the garlic burn). Add the water, stock, beans and red pepper flakes (if using) and stir thoroughly. Simmer on low for 10 minutes, covered. Throw in kale and allow to simmer for another 10 minutes covered. Adjust salt and pepper to taste. Divide into four bowls and serve hot.

Low Cal "English Muffin"

This is just a variation on the 1 minute muffin. I spray a corelle cereal bowl with pam. Then I add 1/3 cup egg substitute like Eggbeaters (I use Costco brand - cheaper) (40 cals). Stir in 1 tsp. applesauce (minimal cals) - this subs for oil and adds moistness. Stir in 2 tb. Bob's Red Mill Flax Meal (60 cals) and 1 tb. Bob's Red Mill Soy Protein powder (20 cals), 1 heaping tsp. Fitness Labs Psyllium (5 cals), 1/16 tsp. xanthan gum (minimal cals), 1/2 tsp. double acting baking powder (minimal cals). Stir well and nuke 1 minute. Cool, slice in half with serrated knife, and toast in toaster oven.

This is very high in fiber and protein too. The 20 cals worth of soy protein adds 5 grams protein which is almost as much as an egg. You could probably sub whey protein, but I'm not sure of the calories.

For 125 cals, along with a low calorie beverage this could be filling on a DD.
Sometimes I add 1 tsp. caraway seed (7 cals) for a "Rye" bread.

Tomato/Spinach Soup

Since I made a potful, I'm not sure of the total but I do know one soup bowl is 125 calories.

Chicken Broth
Shiritaki Noodles
Tomato Sauce
1 med onion
2 c fresh spinach
mushrooms (optional)

It is so simple...rinse the noodles, put in pot with the remainder of ingredients, heat and serve.

I am having it now and it is so satisfying and delicious!!

get crepe or omlette pan hot, spray with PAM. put a glob of the mixture in the center of the pan, pick up the pan and rotate til it makes a tortilla shape. let sit til brown and flip. This recipe made 4 wraps for me. Just had a wrap with scrambled eggwhites and spinach. verrrrry filling for less than 50 calories--
Is this the original DD wrap?
Do you whip the whites first?
I tried this, this morning....only using 1 egg white + 1 tsp of psyllium (Konsyl brand)
I whipped the white..it was still pourable, but when I added the psyllium..and whipped it in, it became instantly 'not pourable'..so after spreading it into the frypan, it became a pancake....yummy...but not a tortilla...which was my goal!
Am I not making the process correctly....or are there other ingredients?

GG: I use storebought liquid eggwhites--I think 1/3 cup is equivalent to 2 whites--so 1 cup would be equivalent to 6 whites. I get 3-4 tortillas per bowl.

if the mixture is too thick, add a little water--it should be fairly thin in the pan and go out to the edges of the pan--shrinks up a little as it cooks--no other ingredients

hey everyone, iv just gone through the first couple of pages of recipes and im a bit confused as to calorie content, and wanted to ask if numbers are completley different in the USA than they are in Australia, as alot of people have mentioned recipes and have listed some ingredients as 0 calories ? when Apparently ALL food has calories - even if its 0.5 of a calorie
for example in a cup of plain black tea, their is 1 calorie alone

1 egg has 155 calories
a baby pickle has 2.1 calories
60 mls almond milk = 16 cal
1 beef stock cube = 12.6 cal
1 tsp onion powder = 9 calories
Shiritaki noodles - 1 serve = 10 calories

Alot of the recipes have 0 calorie next to some ingredients, which makes me wonder if those in the USA dont count the calories if they are under a certain amount?

an example being this recipe, i see the onion, "broth/stock", and soy sauce isnt counted

soy sauce to taste

fry hamburger and onion in large skillit.
Add cabbage and beef broth and let simmer on low until cabbage is wilted.
stir in au jus and serve. Add soy sauce if desired.

one serving
or this snack bag has 0 cal next to some items, does this mean they are so low that they are not counted?

Snack bag
1 medium cucumber peeled and sliced 25 calories
2 sugar free baby gerkins 0 calories
1 sugar free bread and butter pickle 0 calories
1 dill pickle 5 calories
1 celery stalk cut into bitesized pieces 10 calories
About 40 calories for the whole bag

I add all of this to a sandwich bag and add some of the juice from either the baby gerkins or bread and butter pickles to the bottom. Not a whole lot. I put it in my lunch bag and i use one of the freezer packs to keep it cold. Its great for midmorning and right before going home so i dont snack while i cooking dinner.

how crazy is that - its almost like our country (aus) either adds calories, or the USA deducts calories from labels. I wonder if calorie totals for foods are different again in EU and the UK

Maybe you guys have some huge eggs!?!
I also wonder if a "calorie" is the same measure in both places...

Some countries deduct fiber calories and carbs from the labels because the body can not break them down and use them, so they cause no calorie/carb response.

What "size" are your eggs? Those sound like colossal jumbo ones? The most used ones here are "large" and "extra large".
