Do you guys trust the listed calories people post with recipes online, or do you calculate them up yourself to double check? I just found one that sounded too good to be true at 110 calories. I entered it in at ***, and came up with 161. (I don't know if there is a better calculator out there.)

I'm lowering the calories because I don't like rice, I may add some shredded cauliflower or nothing at all. I will probably omit or reduce the bouillon as well, seems like overkill.

-----

Lemony Chicken Soup

Ingredients:
4 cups chicken, cooked and cut up
1 cup rice, raw
5 chicken bouillon cubes
5 cups chicken broth
3 carrots, sliced
1 large onion, chopped
3 eggs
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoons oregano
salt and pepper, to taste

Preparation:
1. Combine the carrots, onions, bouillon cubes and broth in a dutch oven with 5 cups of water; bring to a boil.

2. Add the rice and the chicken, reduce the heat and simmer for about 20 minutes.

3. Whisk the eggs and lemon juice, and quickly add to the hot soup while stirring. (This soup does not form drops like egg drop soup because you stir in the eggs. If you want drops, just don’t stir the eggs.)

4. Add the oregano and season with salt and pepper to taste.
Servings: 12

Nutritional information for one serving:
Calories: 110 (161 according to ***)

You are not kidding. That is all my brain needs at lunch is a full plate/bowl and this fits the bill! (oh, and a good book or a good companion!) Going to purchase another can of Rotel today. My Wal Mart did not have ground chicken so I purchased the low fat ground turkey, split it up into 4 oz. servings, wrapped each in wax paper and put those into a freezer bag. Now on DD's I can pull out just a serving first thing in the morning or the previous night and let it thaw in the frig for lunch.

Hi Beeb,

Your recipe turned out great. I wanted to make it but didn't have the lower cal tomato sauce. Necessity being the mother of invention I discovered that Contadina tomato paste had 15 cals per TBSP, so I used that mixed with 1/2 cup water, seasoned it a little and I believe it worked out just fine.

I do the same thing, and I always input my recipes myself in my Fat Secret food journal and give those counts for my recipes AND I also do as Summer does and re-enter a recipe I find online just to make sure!

For the recipe: 259 calories; 4g fat; 24g carbs; 7g fiber; 33g protein

Ingredients

1 Flax,oat Bran & Whole Wheat Flour Pita Bread
3 oz Chicken Breast (boneless,skinless)
1 tsp McCormick's Taco Seasoning
1 slice Fat Free Singles American
1/4 cup Enchilada Sauce Green Chile
2 tbsp Sour Cream, Fat Free
1/4 cup Green Onions
3 tbsp Chicken Broth (canned)
1 cup Spinach (raw)
2 tbsp Refried Beans - Fat Free

Directions

Split the pita in half around so you have 2 thin circles. These will be your tortillas (alternately, use low-carb, low-calorie tortillas).
Dice the chicken finely and add the chicken, taco seasoning, broth, spinach and onions (reserve 1T of the onions for on top). Simmer for 3-4 minutes until cooked through, raise the heat and let most of the liquid cook off. Add salt and pepper at this point.
Spread 1T refried beans and half the chicken and spinach mixture down the middle of each "tortilla", top each with 1/2 a slice of cheese. Roll up and place in a microwave safe dish.
Mix the enchilada sauce and sour cream until well blended. (or just add the sour cream on top - or leave off to save 25 calories).
Pour over the burritos and microwave for 1 minute to heat through. Top with reserved onions.

**If you can room for the calories, add a serving of "riced" cauliflower that has been cooked with a little salsa for about 50 calories.
I made this today and it sooo saved me, I was craving mexican food badly. I would have never thought to pull the pita bread apart. I do need to get to the store badly, all my ingredients are typically full fat from doing LC! Instead of enchilada sauce I used a couple of packets of taco bell sauce, they claim it as 0 but I may claim it as a few just in case.

Hungry Girl's Chinese Orange Chicken

From Hungry Girl. I can see making this a bit more low cal by using sugar free orange marmalade in place of the low sugar one suggested.

HG's Sweet & Sticky Orange Chicken

Ingredients:
1/4 cup whole-wheat flour
10 oz. raw boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into bite-sized pieces
1/8 tsp. each salt and black pepper
1/4 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
1/4 cup fat-free chicken broth
1 tbsp. cornstarch
1 1/2 tbsp. low-sugar orange marmalade
1 1/2 tbsp. seasoned rice vinegar
1 tbsp. Splenda No Calorie Sweetener (granulated)
1 tbsp. reduced-sodium/lite soy sauce
1 tsp. chopped garlic
1 tsp. chopped ginger
Dash red pepper flakes
2 tbsp. chopped scallions

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

Place flour in a wide bowl.

Place chicken in a large bowl and season with salt and pepper. Top with egg substitute and toss to coat.

One at a time, shake chicken pieces to remove excess egg and coat with flour. Evenly lay chicken pieces on the baking sheet.

Bake for 10 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.

In a medium bowl, whisk broth with cornstarch until cornstarch has dissolved. Add marmalade, vinegar, sweetener, and soy sauce, and thoroughly whisk.

Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Cook and stir garlic and ginger until slightly softened and fragrant, about 1 minute. Add broth mixture and red pepper flakes. Cook and stir until well mixed and slightly thickened, 1 to 2 minutes.

Remove skillet from heat, add chicken, and toss to coat. Serve topped with scallions and enjoy!

That sounds good!
I have some torani s/f orange syrup, I bet that would work nicely with a sprinkle of glucomannan powder to thicken it

I have the Hungry Girl 200 Under 200 cookbook and honestly, I'm such a cooking wimp. If it has more than 5 ingredients, I get scared off!

That one looks good and I like the idea to use the Torani's!

DD Milk Shake

I made this last night and OMG it was GOOD!! Had the mouth feel of a high fat milk shake and VERY filling!!

Ingredients:
1 cup (8 oz) Calorie Countdown Fat Free Milk (35 cals) or Unsweetened Almond Milk (40 cals)

3/4 tsp Gluc powder

Nice splash of SF syrup of choice. I used Strawberry, but have also used vanilla, chocolate, peanut butter and caramel.

2 to 3 TBS sweetener.

3 to 4 ice cubes

Directions:
Put on ingredients in a blender or magic bullet and blend well until it thickens up like a milk shake. Don't over blend or you will get pudding (which is a good thing, too ) The ingredients will expand, giving you about 12 to 14 oz of "shake" when you are done.

Drink immediately!

35 to 40 calories depending on what milk product you use!

fish tostada

1 lowest cal corn tortilla (we have some local ones with 30cal each for a good size)
1 3-4oz tilapia filet (costco about 100cal)
lime juice (one lime is plenty or use bottled if desperate)
couple tbsp green salsa/sauce (you choose how hot, we like Mrs. Renfros but its a scorcher) (10cal or less)
.25 cup nonfat greek yogurt (30cal)
1 cup or so angel hair shredded cabbage (20cal)
sea salt

toast tortilla in dry skillet on a light sprinkle of sea salt or kosher salt til it crisps up
in same pan place frozen tilapia fillets and squeeze a little lime juice on, just cook through. doesn't need any fat
mix yogurt and green sauce and a squeeze of lime, dash of salt if you like

serve layered tortilla, tilapia, cabbage, yog/salsa mixture and have some lime to sqeeze over if you like more. tastes like the best fish tacos out there and is a big pile of food for under 200cal

Just downloaded Hungry Girl 200 under 200. Can't wait to read through!

Made mini meatballs with grassfed beef, chia gel, and tomato paste last night, baked them up and used some Dave's Gourmet Butternut Squash Pasta Sauce from Costco over shirataki noodles with a splash of hot sauce for just under 300cal of filling and fabulous. Absolutely turned out scrumptious, and there were enough meatballs left for hubby to have hot meatball wraps for lunch - with extra mayo

I got this off the Flat Out website, but I think (?) I may have seen it or similar originally in the book.

Very Veggie Pizza

Posted in Hungry Girl Foldit,Pizzas


Preheat oven to 350.

Bake Foldit for 4 minutes. Remove and top with tomato sauce, veggies, and light cheese. Bake for 4 more minutes. Guilt-free goodness!


I make this one with my daughter and we love it. I use 1/8-1/4 C Contadina pizza sauce, 1/4 C shredded low fat cheddar, and 8 1/2 slices of Hormel turkey pepperoni, and it comes to right about 200 calories. Keira puts whatever she wants on hers and it's fun and filling.

There are other things I've made and liked, but honestly, I cook so rarely that I can't think of any right now.

Oh Beeb!
After reading your shake/smoothie recipe, I got my old osterizer blender out lol. I was jonesing for a blentech or vitamix and totally forgot I have a blender!
Still thinking it wouldn't work for a real smoothie, I was surprised to find it did a bang up job! (this is an older osterizer 14 speed model with the square heavy glass jar).
Anyway, after making the shake you posted above, I decided to try to make a green smoothie just to test it. And it did a great job - perfectly smooth with spinach, an apple, half a banana, almond milk and protein powder. I'll have it tomorrow, but I'm glad you posted that recipe and made me remember my blender before spending $400 on a new one! (there was a point to this post and it was thanks for posting the shake recipe lol).

Just made this, VERY good! And Beeb says 3 to 4 ice cubes, that is plenty. I put more and too thick but the flavor is great! I can just imagine having this all summer long, up days or down. Thanks!

In a large pot, brown turkey on medium heat, breaking up with a wooden spoon as it cooks. When cooked through, add onions and pepper and cook 2-3 minutes. Add tomatoes, corn, beans, tomato sauce, refried beans, taco seasoning and chicken broth. Bring to a boil and simmer about 10-15 minutes.

I have found this to be delicious and very satisfying (good protein in the egg white). It also feels decadent for a DD, and I think that's good!
Very much like Chocolate angel food to me! Wonder if I did not nuke for a whole 2 mins if it'd be a lil gooeyer!!! LOL!! Very yummy!

Pancakes...

Here is the recipe

1/3 cup Carbquik 90
2T Oat Fiber
1T Flax 30
1/4 tsp gluc powder
1/2 t B. Powder
1/2 t salt - give or take I eyeballed!
1T Psyllium

Wet ingredients
1 large egg- 71
3T egg whites 25
1/4 cup Sf syrup- I used DaVinci Dulce de Leche (smells like pancakes to me!)
1/2 cup almond/coconut milk 23

I get a total of around 240 and this made 6 smaller pancakes! Could have been thinned a little with water I think to make 6 decent sized ones.
3 pancakes 120 calories!!! perfect for a DD with some Walden Farms syrup!

I am looking for ways to cut the calories even more... maybe sub out some wheat bran for the flax and only use egg whites. Maybe cut out the almond milk for water. Or eat 4 on an UD for 160 calories and save 2 for a DD for 80 calories!

Either way these are SUPER filling!!

If I have made any mistakes counting the calories please let me know. Still pretty new to this!

By the way I get at most 4 carbs for the entire recipe! Very low carb friendly too!!!

I the look of this recipe and I also your calorie swap suggestions! I can see using egg beaters in this, and wheat bran, even more Psyllium and less carbquick, and calorie countdown milk, too! Oh, good recipe!!! :high5
