Thanks for the info and if I may I have a couple more ?s. Was it the Sharitaki that gave you the stomach issue or the kelp noodles? And do they have the texture of the Sharitaki noodles? If so I won't be able to do these because I just don't like the texture and I have problems with food textures, even if the food is yummy!

Shirataki doesn't give me any problems. It was the kelp noodles. But oat fiber gave me problems too and doesn't seem to affect too many other people, so it's probably just my constitution. I find this funny because I eat lots of very rich or spicy foods with no issues at all.

The texture of the kelp noodles is different from shirataki, but it's still not the same as "regular" noodles. I'm afraid since I had them only the one time, I haven't played with them to see what works best. I know they can be eaten raw or cooked, so that could change the texture significantly. They were quite yummy IMO, so I'm sad they didn't work out for me. I may try them again at some point. I also want to try the OMM again, but have to wait for a DD I'm at home to be safe, IYKWIM.

Oh, thanks again!! I can't do the Shirataki because of the same problems you have with the kelp. Now I'm curious and will have to take a ride to Whole Foods to get these and see what they are all about!

Thanks so much again and Happy New Year to you, my JUDDD BUDDD!!

Thai Red Curry Chicken Soup (165 cal for whole pot!)
1 (16 oz small can) FF chicken broth (10 cal)
3 oz already cooked chicken breast pieces (100 cal)
3/4 cup frozen mixed Asian veggies (30 cal)
1 TBL Thai Red Curry Seasoning Mix, Sun-Bird brand, (DO NOT USE WHOLE PACKET IN THIS SOUP, use remaining powder in packet for other soups or recipes) (25 cal)

Add all above to a saucepan, heat over med-high until boiling, reduce heat and simmer a few minutes.

This was pretty spicy so you might want to use 1/2 TBL, taste first before adding a whole TBL of the seasoning mix. I like it this spicy though!

Sun-Bird also makes about 10 other powdered Asian seasoning mixes that I frequently find on sale. They have a Lemon Chicken Seasoning packet for same calories that I want to try next!

A teaspoon of the red curry paste in small jar is also super low in cals per serving WITHOUT the coconut milk of course, but it is almost as delish without the coconut milk!

I was really wanting french toast on a dd so I did this:
3 suzies thin cakes (38 cals - use rice cakes or whatever you have that has a neutral flavor)
15 sprays parkay spray margerine (10cals)
ground cinnamon
walden farms pancake syrup or other no/low cal syrup

Spritz the cakes with the butter spray and sprinkle with cinnamon. Dip in the syrup.

I choose oatmeal for breakfast some mornings too, Shelly. Although just the regular QuickOats Quaker stuff... but it never occurred to me to turn it into a wonderful bowl of pumpkin pie hot cereal! And I am absolutely going to do this. It sounds wonderful on a cold winter morning. Thanks for the great idea!

This sounds and am wondering how many servings you get from this and the calorie count, if you have it?

TIA

Oh dear. Don't have the entire count but I do know that 1/2 skinless chicken breast is 140 calories. 1 once is 46 calories. 1 ounce of raw cauliflower is 7 calories. Reduced sugar ketchup from Heinz 5 calories for 1 TBS. A whole medium onion is around 40.

BTW, Beeb. Where can I find your low calorie English muffin recipe?

Thanks for the info and can you let us know how many servings you got and I'll figure out the cals, carbs, etc for us.

Here is the thread with the Lcal English Muffin Recipe that really belongs to Soobee and Ouiz. Look at post # 270 for the recipe and post # 321 for the Nutrition info. http://www.lowcarbfriends.com/bbs/lo...-w-pics-9.html

I took all of my 600 calories for DD today and made one frittata to eat whenever I want during my meals today. This means I've alread counted calories for the day and don't have to think about it the rest of the day. All my day's calories are in one dish, plus it is all all protein! I'll let you know tomorrow if it satiated hunger today. Of course, if you have more/less cals on your DD you can adjust it. Here is the 600 cal recipe:

Egg White/ Egg Beaters Frittata

Pam spray
3 1/2 cups egg beaters (420 C)
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. pepper
1 TBL parmesan cheese from can (60 C)
2 TBL bacon pieces (50 C)
2 laughing cow wedges (70 C)
Seasoning of choice

Turn on the broiler. While it is heating, beat the eggs with remaing ingredients. Spray Pam and heat nonstick ovenproof 9 to 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Pour in the eggs. Turn the heat to low and cook until the frittata is golden brown on the bottom, 5-8 minutes. Place the frittata under the broiler and cook until firm. REMEMBER THAT THE SKILLET'S HANDLE IS METAL (BEING THAT IT IS OVEN PROOF) SO ALWAYS WHERE AN OVEN MITT/GLOVE WHEN HANDLING IT. I got a painful 1st degree burn one time for forgetting to keep the silicone mit on the handle even after removing it from the oven and picking it up again by the handle before it had cooled!!

The 600 calorie Egg White/ Egg Beaters Frittata I posted in an earlier post, I need to correct! It is the biggest skillet you have not the "8 to 9-inch" I had accidently had written in the recipe....unless you want to divide into two skillets it all won't fit in a medium sized skillet.

Pineapple Upside-Down muffins

** the info does not include the calories from the oat fiber or glucomannan since they're 100% fiber and can not be used as fuel by the body. If you want to count them, I estimate that the calories would be about 100 cals per muffin.

Makes 6 muffins @ Per muffin: 46 cals; 20.75g carbs; 10g fiber; 1.56g protein

Ingredients

3 tbsp dry Cake Mix - Angel Food
4 tbsp Oat Fiber
1 tsp Konjac Glucomannan Powder
6 tbsp Crushed Pineapple in Juice
6 tsp Ideal brown sugar sweetener (or brown sugar of your choice)
1/4 cup Liquid Egg Whites
1/3 cup water, or more
3 cherry Marischino Cherries, chopped or halved
4 drop Ez-sweetz (this was too sweet, I suggest 2 drops)

Directions

Spray a 6 muffin tin very well with butter flavor cooking spray. Divide the pineapple, sweetener and chopped cherries evenly among the tins.
Mix the cake mix, fiber and glucomannan. Mix the liquid egg whites, 1T juice from the pineapple and liquid sweetener* with 1/3 cup water and stir into the dry ingredients. Add more water if needed to achieve a batter that is thicker than a cake batter but not stiff like a muffin batter.
Spoon evenly into the 6 tins and bake at 350f for 35 minutes or until cooked through.
Let cool 10 minutes, then turn out onto a plate so any remaining liquids don't get away (lol).

*If you use something like a liquid sugar free syrup, replace the water with the same amount so you don't have too much liquid.

**Notes:
This was my first try at creating these. I think a little baking powder would improve the lightness of the batter.

DD Creamed Turkey

1 can Campbell's Fat Free 98% Cream of Mushroom Soup (150 Calories)
2 C chicken broth (40 Calories)
Leeks, raw (5 oz.) (85 Calories)
Turkey breast (10 oz.) (324 Calories)
Seasonings (garlic powder, onion powder)

Simmer leeks in 1 spray of Pam cooking spray, add broth and soup and then turkey. Reheat for dinner.
2 servings, 300 calories
I used leftover turkey breast from a large roaster for this recipe. I hate canned soup but was in a pinch. You can make your own for this and it will be much better.

I'm brand new here, but this is something I make a LOT, and it fits in here- only
25 calories and the "recipe" makes 4 servings, so you can theoretically snack on
this all day on a DD, for only 100 cals. It's lowcarb as well, since I'm staying LC
while trying to cycle calories. (It works in my head- but lots of stuff that works
in my head... well, you know )

So, get a 4-cup glass measure and put 1/2 cup boiling water in it. Add a package
of sugar-free gelatin (any flavor, today I did lime) and stir until dissolved. Add 3/4
cup of ice water to cool it off. Then stir in a 6-ounce carton of CarbMaster yogurt
(any flavor- I used spiced pear with the lime gelatin). Make sure it's well-blended
then divide into individual servings and chill. Sometimes I use a matching flavor
of PowerAde Zero, but today I just used water. Use any flavor of gelatin and any
flavor of yogurt that you like. I also like raspberry yumberry yogurt with raspberry
gelatin, and strawberry colada yogurt with strawberry gelatin.

Per Serving: 25 Calories; trace Fat (13.6% calories from fat); 3g Protein;
3g Carbohydrate; 0g Dietary Fiber; 3mg Cholesterol; 71mg Sodium.

Dinner omelet

1/4 cup egg whites with 1t psyllium to make a wrap.
Put that in the omelet pan and make sure it spreads out.
raw spinach, cut up mushrooms, half a can of baby shrimp, 1 laughing cow cheese wedge
fold and put the lid on top and let cook for a few minutes
Put on plate and add diced jalapenos and salsa to the top.
about 150 calories and was very filling.
My boyfriend said it looked like an omelet you would pay 8 bucks for in a restaurant. It was very pretty and really really good.

about 150 calories and was very filling.
My boyfriend said it looked like an omelet you would pay 8 bucks for in a restaurant. It was very pretty and really really good.
YUM! Great idea!

I want to buy the psyllium to make a wrap. I make the eggwhite wraps now without it but I'm assuming this stuff makes it hold together better, is that it?

Yes. The psyllium makes it more like a tortilla.

Im gonna go ahead and pot this egg nog pudding here. It's really lower calorie than I thought it was and you could probably use egg beaters and make it even lower. Egg whites I don't think would work. That eggnog flavor comes from the yoke a lot I think.

4oz almond milk, 2oz water
1 egg or egg beaters
Half cup Greek yogurt, you don't even really need it. I used to up the calories
1t run extract
1t vanilla extract
Cinnamon
Nutmeg
And sweetener to taste
1t gluc

Put in bullet or blender and blend like crazy
Put in fridge for a few hours
I ate it the next day. It was so good
I made homemade eggnog for Christmas and could not believe how good it was. My kids even thought it was better than the original. This is just a little different take on that and a smaller portion instead of a pitcher.
