I "made" a salad dressing last night by using one of my small tupperware, 1/2 cup size I think. Some Dijon- about 10 calories, some lemon juice, pinch of oregano, bl. pepper, garlic and salt. Shake Shake Shake!! Pretty good. Counted the whole salad with dressing as 20 calories! YUM! Might add 1/2T of HH for 10 more calories and better mouth feel, or Light Sour Cream. Or Feta cheese if I can afford the calories.

I posted this elsewhere but maybe it should be here.

Yellow Curry Cabbage 143 calories
Adapted from Spinach Yellow Curry Shrimp at Thai Talay in Pismo Beach
Thai Talay is a favorite stop of ours when driving to southern California. Stop there and have some any UD. I omitted the shrimp, spinach and coconut milk and came up with a flavorful version of cabbage. Adding 3 oz of shrimp brings the dish to 227 calories.

1/2 head cabbage, chopped
1 tsp Maesri Karee Curry Paste (Thai masaman Yellow Curry Paste)

Spray pan with Pam-oid.
Add cabbage and wilt.
Add 1 tsp water and Maesri Paste and stir well.
Cover and turn off heat.
Let sit 10 minutes, stir and eat.

Yes, the cut up pieces are browned in a frying pan sprayed with cooking spray and then up on top of the squash, then the milk/cheese mixture goes on top and it's in the oven until bubbly and a bit brown!!

Posted this on another thread and thought it might fit very well here but I dont have the calorie count.

My newest and fastest recipe is a Hungry Girl recipe I saw on Dr. Oz. 1/4 c egg beaters and 1 laughing cow wedge any flavor I like, few chopt onions microwave. You can add in anything u like to eat in eggs. I have already cooked chopt bacon from Costco ( the darn thing does have sugar beware) I microwave maybe 30 seconds and stir it and than microwave another 30 seconds. Fast scrambled eggs

Some really good recipe ideas!

Here's my latest attempt - Salmon Patties

1 pouch smoked salmon (Chicken of the Sea) 120
3 T. egg whites - 35
1/4 cup oat fiber - 0

Total cal - 155

I mixed everything together then squished it into a patty. (I think I'd make 2 next time - easier to handle in the pan.) I sprayed a pan with cooking spray and "pan-fried" the patty until it was crispy on both sides. Makes 1 large or 2 decent sized patties.

Tasted good to me!

I would have never thought to use oat fiber this way. I think I'll try this. Thanks for the idea!

Dawn's lower oat fiber version of Ouizoid's super yummy OMM

(Ouizoid's is the best, but if you have trouble with oat fiber, this could alleviate some of that.)

6 T egg whites (50 calories)
1 T oat fiber
1 T Hershey's natural cocoa powder (10 calories)
1/4 C DaVinci's SF syrup (I've used banana, hazelnut, and coconut at different times--all were good)
1/4 t baking powder
1 t glucomannan powder

I've done it without the baking powder and the gluc powder and it came out fine too.

Spray the mug or bowl with Pam or similar, mix all ingredients, nuke for 2 - 2 1/2 minutes. Sometimes I take it out after 1 1/2 minutes, flip it over and put it back in for a minute.

The recipe says to spray the mug, so does that mean it makes one muffin? Is this a large soup mug?

Coffee mug, cereal bowl, whatever you want. I use a round tupperware type bowl so it's wider and flatter, almost like bread.

If you are looking at the first ingredient, Beeb says peanut flour. Will the P2B work the same as the peanut flour? Maybe so because it is such a small amount.

It's very similar, and yes, you can use it. The main difference is that PB2 has sugar in it, but only a little. Another thing I do is add about 1/2 cup of shredded zucchini or yellow squash. It pretty much disappears into the body of the muffin, adds moisture and volume, and only adds 10 calories.

I like the idea of adding zucchini. I may add 1 tsp. flax meal to mine next time, too. But that will up the calories 12 more. But it would give more rise. Mine was kinda dense and packy this morning. Flavor was great using Torani caramel SF syrup.

I always allocate 100 calories for my muffin, just to take care of little things like that. I'll double check to make sure 100 will cover it, and then I may add the flaxseed in, too!

One thing I found that made a LOT of difference is psyllium husk. About a tsp (or two, even) of that changes the texture of the muffin to make it much more substantial. Also, even though I love gluc for many things, I find that my muffin will NEVER get dry (I mean it will be slimy) if I include it in my muffin recipe! But that's me! Others may love it.

I really enjoy all the different things we can do to our OMM's to make them delicious and filling!

Dottie--that looks so good--I remember the last time you posted a recipe using the pitas as tortilla shells that I wanted to try it and then I forgot--

I've been using the boca crumbles (naughty soy i know, bad hypo me--but my thyroid status is tracked monthly, and so far so good ) with mexican flavouring--just because you get such a huge protein hit for so few calories. Think I will try your recipe today

Roasted Shawarma Vegetables

A great DD recipe, with a few ounces of grilled steak or grilled chicken. Mmmmmm!

This dish is incredibly easy to pull together and is exceptionally good with charcoal grilled meats. Shown above with a ribeye steak. I have even been known to cook the veggies in a grilling basket right on the grill with the meat! It’s even BETTER that way! This dish always elicits a thumbs up from diners. Induction friendly recipe. If you have leftovers, I often cut up any grilled meat that is leftover and toss it right in the vegetables for lunch the next day. This is one of those dishes that just gets better and better every time you reheat it! This dish is VERY filling!

INGREDIENTS:

1 medium yellow squash cut in 1″ chunks (or zucchini is OK)
1 small eggplant (about 10-12 oz) cut in ½” slices, then cut those in quarters
4 plum tomatoes cut into quarters
1 green, yellow or orange bell pepper, seeded and cut in 1″ chunks
1 red bell pepper seeded and cut in 1″ chunks
1 purple onion cut into ½” wedges, layers separated
12 cloves garlic (entire bulb, cloves peeled but left whole)
2 T. Shawarma Spice Blend
¼ tsp. each salt & black pepper
Splash of olive oil (about 2 T., or more if you can afford the calories)

DIRECTIONS: Preheat oven to 450º. Cut up all veggies and place in large mixing bowl. Drizzle olive oil over all and stir well to coat all veggies with oil and seasonings. Toss to try and coat all veggies with oil. Pour into glass casserole pan and bake at 450º for 30-40 minutes, stirring every 10-15 minutes.
