Just made something really yummy for brunch.

I got these chicken/pineapple sausages at our local big box store yesterday. I thought that they were 150 calories for one, at closer look today, they are 150 for half!

I cut up two, browned on both sides, added a clove of minced garlic, about 1/8 teaspoon of ginger, a little low sodium soy, about 2 tbs, a slice of onion chopped fine, and then added a bag of the cole slaw mix, the entire bag was only 100 calories, 1.5 cups was 20 calories. Cooked it til the veggies were tender.
Yummy!

So, I split it into 4 servings, think that I got about 150 for sausage, 25 for the cabbage, no idea how to count the garlic, onion and soy sauce. I think that I will throw in another 25 for that. Viola, 200 calories for a nice satisfying bowl.

Hi Rox,
If you go to amazon and enter the information as shown, searching on books category, you should be able to find the kindle download there. You will also need to download their reader to be able to read it on your laptop or smartphone, but it is free and easy enough to find. Let me know how you do with it and good luck!

I just tried something new and found it to be really good!

2 c. unsweetened coconut milk (45 cal / cup So Delicious)
1 c. cold water
1 tablespoon cocoa powder (20 cal)
1 teaspoon glucomannan powder
stevia to taste

Whir it all up in the blender and let it rest for a couple of minutes to thicken. It's a whole blender full of chocolate "milkshake" for under a buck and 110 calories, with the nutrition powerhouses of coconut and cocoa!

So easy, too.

Also, Kimmie, you could use the unsweetened almond milk for 35 cals a cup.

1/2 T cocoa powder (7 calories)
1/4 cup iced water and 3 ice cubes
2 squirts of toasted marshmellow davinci sf syrup
2 drops ez-sweetz
1/4 t gluc powder
= 30 calories

That sounds good especially the coconut one. I think that is on the menu today. Thanks, Susan

I bought some "real" pasta last night that is 90 cals an ounce. I also bought some sun dried tomato pesto that is delicious at 50 cals for 2 T. Mixed together, it's a delicious meal for 140 cals! Ronzoni Smart Taste pasta and Classico pesto. I really wanted the basil pesto, but it was too high in cals. I added a package of spinach for an extra 60 cals. I was only going to eat half the spinach, but ended up putting it all on my plate.

The coconut milk doesn't taste like coconut at all, unfortunately, but it is a good low cal substitute for milk.

OOOOOOOooooooh don't you just love spinach?! It is so so yummy. I wonder if you couldn't just add some fresh basil leaves to the Classico pesto and enjoy a modification? I LOVE fresh basil; I am so happy tonight as I found a fresh pot of it at Aldi's tonight for 2.49. It's at home on the windowsill and will be generating leaves for tomato, fresh mozarrella, basil and basalmic vinegar yum yums VERY soon.

Yum!!! I don't have that particular flavor syrup, but I think any of the 30 that I have will work.

Orrrr...you can take away the taco shells and just have a taco salad w/out them. That would lower it by 120 cals...may do that next time as I didn't feel like the shells added much bulk! That and I don't really count lettuce/tomato cals because they are so negligible.

Or just crumble one of the shells into your salad for a yummy crunch!!

If you're veg or don't want to fuss about with cooking meat everytime you want a taco (or taco salad), the frozen burger crumbles by Morningstar or Boca are great. Just take however much you want from the freezer bag, season up, and heat...you're ready to go.

Low Cal/ Low carb turkey meatballs

Ok-- this would be good for DD b/c these are pretty low cal (~50cal per ball) and very low carb.

I posted over in the regular recipe thread section:

It's tricky to purchase some of the sugar-free syrups in the UK but I've identified a source for a couple of brands to try out and this has finally convinced me to get around to ordering them. We only seem to do vanilla, hazelnut or caramel as sugar-free syrups in the UK though so I'm in no danger of amassing a collection of 30

As an experiment tonight I rehydrated some of my HM apple leather and stirred some psyllium and glucomannan powders into it and then ate that with a small helping of low-fat custard. Whereas I would have found it difficult and messy to hydrate and drink that fibre, this just created a very thick apple purée that was easy to eat (it was one of the leathers that I'd flavoured with cassinamon).

I'm reluctant to 'waste' DD calories on apple leather but as I have trouble making my UD calories and I need the fibre then this might be part of a solution for me.

You can flavour the apple with cloves, cardamom, cinnamon and cassia to taste.

You spread the apple paste onto a non-stick sheet and dehydrate it until the purée is transformed into a still pliable leather. You can roll it up and either store it dehydrated at room temperature or in the freezer.

A little piece of leather makes for a light, sweet nibble. Or you can rehydrate the leather for sweet or savoury use.

You can mix other fruits in with the apple or make leather from different fruits.

Is it known by a different name in the USA?

You helpfully answered while I was composing my over-elaborate answer

Colloquially, hand-rolled cigarettes are known as roll-ups in the UK, so I wouldn't have guessed that.
