DD Pad Thai

1tbsp PB2
1tsp minced garlic
1tbsp fish sauce (i used Thai Kitchen)
1tbsp low sodium soy sauce
1 bag rinsed miracle noodle

Put all in a wok and cook until sauce is almost evaporated.

42 calories, 6.35g carbs

I put some of Rosethorns sweet and sour sauce on it (all it is is raspberry davincis, water, and vinegar, she used xanthan gum to thicken it, I didn't, so there is basically nothing nutrition wise in it). I also used some sliced jalapenos in it because that's how my pad thai always came.

It's so freaking good. I can't believe I'm eating this delicious lunch right now feeling like I'm in a Thai restaurant but I'm just on plan

Glucomannan pudding recipes: Reducing almond milk and adding more water can reduce calories by half or more.....


Lemon Breeze
1 cup Unsweetened vanilla almond millk (40) (I like almond Breeze)
1 packet of singles Lemonade Flavor drink powder (0)
1/2 tsp gluc powder (negligible)

I use a blender to whip until frothy then refridgerate until it's nice and cold and sets up. It tastes like lemon meringue pie with the meringue blended in the pudding. You can also reduce the almond milk to half with half water for around 20 calories. If you don't have Gluc powder this would still be a tasty smoothie if blended with ice, and can be made more substantial with PP, yogurt, cottage cheese, etc.

I made this with a tangerine-strawberry drink mix, used 1/2 water, 1/2 almond milk for only 20 calories! Both are really yummy!

yep, I'm going to try this. I've so far only made it with chocolate almond milk, and I like it... a little lemon meringue action sounds yummy!

Low-Cal Chili-Dog Soup

1/2 can black soybeans (rinsed) 210
1/2 cup Dixie Diner ground beef not 120
1 spoonful drained/rinsed hamburger 164?
1 small can tomato sauce 80
1 chopped fresh tomato 22
2 Hebrew National low-fat hot dogs finely diced 90
2 cups hmade veg broth(cal count guesstimated) 50
1 cup boiled celery 27
1/2 green bell pepper 12
2 cups water (added after everything else is done cooking, or if you need to add some while it's cooking if the level gets low)

Lots of different chili powders + garlic to taste + a few thoroughly pulverized fresh peppercorns

775 total calories

Cook it all up together until the tomato has cooked thoroughly and pretty much broken down. I'm going to roast some jalapenos to put in it for next DD (Made this today, and ended up with a TON of leftovers, so I'm set for the next week of DD, I think, lol) - roasting the jalapenos takes the REAL fire out of them, and the flavor is to drool for.

Celery, I know, sounds odd - but it works, and it adds substance & a great texture w/out a lot of calories. I worked out the serving sizes before I added the celery, green pepper, and water, and it ended up about 1/3 of a cup for 100 calories - I think close to a full cup would be about 100 calories, and you can add more water to thin it up if you like.

Dottie, Sorenkkg...let me know what you think! The tangerine-strawberry mix made a pudding that was so yummy! It had "strawberry parfait" all over it. They are my current favorites.

A simple conversion of the high fat jalapeno poppers.
Use fat free cream cheese for an even lighter option, though I found it doesn't quite taste right with the ff cheese.
Additionally: a slice of lean regular bacon, in place of the turkey bacon, only adds about 20 cals, so it's an option

Ingredients

1 Jalapeno Pepper
2 tbsp Light Cream Cheese
1 slice Turkey Bacon
1 second Organic Olive Oil Cooking Spray

Cut pepper in half lenght-wise and scoop out the seeds (if you want it hot, leave them in).
Divide the cream cheese among the 2 halves and press it into the pepper "bowl".
Cut the slice of bacon in half and wrap around the pepper halves.
Place on a baking sheet and spritz with olive oil cooking spray (this is important since turkey bacon is very lean).
Bake at 400f for 8 minutes.

(this is for 1 pepper, or 1 serving of 2 halves. Just adapt as needed for as many peppers as you want to make.)

89 cals; 5.6g fat; 2.8g carbs; 0.4g fiber; 7.2g protein

Super quick and easy DD cream of ham soup.

3 slices hormel smoked or baked ham (60 cal/1g carb)
1 cup chicken stock (I use Rachel ray, 15 cal/1g carb)
2 tbsp half & half (40 cals/1g carb)
1tbsp grated parmesan cheese (only cheese I had at work, 20 cals/0g carb)

Put everything in a personal blender like the magic bullet and pulse until smooth and heat in the microwave. Add salt & pepper to taste.

It was delicious. Really really good. For 135 calories and 3g carbs. I'm going to eat this a lot I think. It would probably be better with a laughing cow wedge or maybe a couple steamed cauliflower pieces to thicken it up a bit, but those are the ingredients I had at work.

Aw, Dawn, I'm jealous!

We have two rickety old microwaves that usually blow a fuse when both are on and a refrigerator this has grown some serious science experiments.

Define full kitchen? stove?

I shouldn't complain-- my office (when I go) has a pretty clean fridge (actually, 2, and that's just in the kitchen on my floor), 2 micros, a coffee machine I voted for even though I don't drink coffee (I liked the tea the purveyor offered, Numi tea ) and there's filtered cold water on tap.

I actually work-from-couch most often, so technically, I have a full kitchen where I work too, and there's only 1 of us (and 2 greyhounds) in the whole building!

blender, food processor, 2 ice cream makers, spiral slicer, meat slicer, 2 crockpots, and my favorite-- hot water kettle with 5 settings for different tea types

We have a stove, oven, dishwasher, full sized refrigerator, microwave, and we're fully stocked with pots/pans, bakeware, etc. We do NOT have a blender though. We have dishes, cups, glasses, tupperware, etc. When I feel like it, I'll make a shrimp stir-fry or something for DD lunch, and all the guys want a taste. That saves me some calories! I have my own shelf in the cupboard with all my crazy foods, and my own drawer in the fridge, since I'm the only one who cooks very often. Nobody messes with my stuff. I love my office!!

Jealous about your greyhounds at "work" with you though! I'd love to work from home sometimes, or even bring my babies to the office with me. How's the toe doing?

Lol. I work in an office complex that has a central kitchen for everyone, but hardly anyone uses it, so I've taken it over. I have 2 full shelves full of my crap. I have a Walmart brand magic bullet, boxes of tea, glucc powder, miracle rice and noodles, various spices, parchment paper, chicken stock, I can't think of what all else lol. People probably think I'm crazy.

In the fridge I have containers of glucc pudding in various flavors and about 6 bottles of walden farms products. Only bad thing about the work fridge is it's been freezing everything. I turned it down to 2 and it's still freezing everything. I told the landlord and he said he would look at it but has yet to do so.

OK - not a recipe but a new (to me) product that I am totally in love with and can see so many uses for! Trader Joe's asian style spicy peanut vinaigrette. I just had 1T (35 cals) over 2 cups of shredded cabbage and it was fabulous. It has a spicy kick that I think will be amazing over a veggie stir fry or in the shirataki noodle dishes and the 1T went a long way and probably could be cut with some rice vinegar to reduce calories. Could be used as a dipping sauce. Hmmm - I am already planning my menus around this sauce. Find it at Trader Joes in the refrigerated section.

No Trader Joe's in my wapontake but thanks for the inspiration.
You reminded me of a great sauce I make that's fantastic hot with cooked cabbage and also cold with raw cabbage. It would work well with PB2 for DDs.


Here's the original recipe:

Salsa di Mani
1 medium onion
1 clove garlic
1 tin chopped tomatoes
1 Dspn oil to sautee above
2 Tbspn smooth peanut butter
1 Tbspn tamarind juice or juice of 1/2 lemon
500ml chicken (or veggie!) stock
S&P

Tweak and adjust as appropriate. I'd probably add some chili but it's very versatile.

Lick the glass clean good DD gluc shake this morning!

1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/3 frozen banana chunk
2T pb2 chocolate
4 ice cubes
Splash of davinci syrup - I used sf white chocolate
1/2 tsp gluc powder

Blend and enjoy! 90 cals which is a bit higher than I would like this early in a DD but sooo good. I hope it keeps me full for a while! I might try it without the frozen banana chunk next time for DD and just add some banana extract.

While I had my blender out I also tried the lemon breeze recipe which tasted amazing in liquid form. Can't wait to try it later when set.

Very simple and fat free and only 34 cal

2 eggs whites in the muffin tin (lined with muffin liner), bake in 375 oven for 10-15 min (or till set). It comes out easly and it tastes great. Next time I will add some steamed broccoli.

Seasnax (they make the seaweek snacks) has come out with chipotle flavoured big wrap sized seaweed squares (5). Very spicy and good! I spread one with one wedge of LC chipotle queso (35) and one slice deli turkey (40)--80 calorie delicious wrap!!

Safeway! I'm in love and already plotting other wraps I can make. So good. I think they also make an onion flavoured one, but I loved how spicy the chipotle one was!

Drat! We don't have a Safeway. Hopefully they have them at Whole Foods or Savemart! I tried their website, and you can only search by state, not city. There were a bunch of Whole Foods stores listed, but I didn't have time to check for mine.

I imagine you could use a regular square of seaweed that you use for Sushi-- check the asian food aisle. It's roasted nori, and you could just add more flavor to whatever you are putting in it, to make up for the lack of flavor ON it.

I actually have some plain nori in the house, so I'll give this a try tomorrow! Thanks for the great idea Ouiz!
