JUDDD version of an Egg McMuffin

This is a little higher calorie for breakfast on a DD, but I had it this morning and it kept me full for hours.

1 Thomas' Light English Muffin (100)
1 Large Egg (70)
1 slice Jones' ham (25)
1 slice Sargento thin mild cheddar cheese (45)

I have a microwave egg muffin cooker. Toast the English muffin, put the egg in the microwave cooker and scramble with a fork, add the ham to the egg and microwave for 50 seconds - 1 minute. Put the egg/ham mixture on the English muffin and add one slice of cheese.

Voila! 240 calorie Egg McMuffin with 18 grams of protein.

Avocado, corn and tomato salad.

I dislike tomatoes so I typically either substitute beans or just go with Avocado and corn. very filling and makes enough for a few days. I'm sorry, but I'm unsure of the calories.

Ingredients:

4 ears corn, kernels removed (about 3 cups)
1 1/2 pounds grape tomatoes, halved (about 3 cups)
1 pound fresh mozzarella, diced
2 medium avocados, diced

Directions
Combine the salad ingredients in a large bowl and let sit at least 15 minutes before serving, or cover and refrigerate for up to 4 hours.

Recipe from my bestie.

Lisa, I found a similar recipe on the web, but it included champagne vinegar. A lot of the reviewers raved about the combination in addition to the vinegar. I think a sprinkle or two would be enough, but I'm sure it's wonderful plain too. - That whole recipe (that you posted) has about 2300-2500 calories. I don't know how many servings it would be though. There are 3 calories per T of champagne vinegar, if added.

I'm pretty boring so I honestly dull down the recipe and use half an avocado and 1/4 cup of corn. I'm not a huge fan of dressing and that little bit of food tends to fill me up, but if I'm taking a dish to a party I'll use yhe actual recipe.

DD Tuna Melt
1 pouch Bumble bee tuna in water (2.5oz - 60 cals)
1 stalk celery, sliced thin (6 cals)
2 green onions, sliced thin (6 cals)
1T dijonnaise (or use fat free mayo -15 calories)
1 large tomato cut into 4 slices (25 calories)
1 kraft fat free american single (25 calories)

Preheat oven (I use a toaster oven for this)to 400f.
Mix tuna, celery, onion and dijonnaise with salt and pepper to taste.
Pat tomato slices dry with a paper towel.
Spray a small oven safe pan with cooking spray and place the tomato slices down, then split the tuna mixture evenly among them, patting the tuna down slightly.
Quarter the cheese slice and put a piece on each one, then bake for 7-10 minutes until the cheese passes for melted ( you know fat free cheese doesn't really melt) and it's heated through.

137 calories, .8g fat, 9.2g carbs, 2.4g fiber, 18.2g protein

I've done this with cucumbers instead of tomatoes. Just cut the cucumber in half lengthwise, scoop out the insides but leave some of the "meat" and fill the hollows with whatever tuna concoction you come up with. Pop it in the oven or toaster oven until heated and voila! I haven't done this since my low carb days, so never figured out the calories, but I'm thinking it would be similar to yours, Dottie.

It was good I do think next time I will steam or saute the onion and celery first and maybe add 1tsp real mayo (33 cals) to the mix to give it a little more creaminess and bind it better.
But as-is, it was really good

I have the reaction to tomatoes that Cindy has to cucumbers, but I may try your version Dawn. I think I would use some real shredded cheese since I don't like the fat free too much.

Not really a recipe but a method.
Take a weight watchers smart one creamy rigatoni with chicken and broccoli, cook according to package directions -but only until it warmed and thawed, not totally cooked, then add it to 3 cups of simmering chicken broth and simmer a few minutes to finish cooking and blend the flavors.
For about 300 calories, it makes a decent pot of soup with very little prep.
Works well for chilly days when you don't really want to "cook".
I imagine this would work for a lot of their (or lean cuisine) pasta or bean based meals. This happened to be the one I used to use all the time

Mock Cinnamon Dulce Coffee
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (17 cals)
2-3T torani brown sugar cinnamon syrup, s/f (0 cals) or any s/f cinnamon syrup
2/3 cup strong brewed coffee (2 cals but I don't count them)
shake of ground cinnamon

Pour almond milk and syrup in a microwave safe cup and heat for 30 seconds until hot but not boiling.
Froth with a frother of your choice, or don't -up to you -it just makes it "pretty" lol.
Add the coffee, stir and sprinkle top with cinnamon.

I don't use a lot of sweeteners, but this may be my go-to hot evening beverage with decaf, it's so good!

What a great idea, I have a bunch of those meals in the freezer. I like the WW Santa Fe chicken 140 cal with chicken broth, you could add to of the meals plus chicken broth for 280 plus the broth. My favorite meal is eating right (Safeway Brand) Poblano chicken, that would make a very nice soup.

Ha'Tuna Matata
I made this last DD but really wanted a catchy name for it.
It's low-carb, low-cal take on a comfort food, so this fits

Ingredients
1 Healthy Selections Light Tuna In Water 2.5oz Pouch
4 oz Frozen Cauliflower, riced
3 tbsp Light Parmesan Alfredo Ragu
1/3 cup Peas And Carrots, Frozen
1 oz Chicken Broth-low Sodium

Directions
Rice the cauliflower and set aside to drain.
Spray a non-stick pan with cooking spray and add the tuna, peas and carrots and broth.
Simmer 1 minute, then add the cauliflower and saute for 1 minute.
Add the alfredo and heat through. Salt and pepper to taste.
Makes 1 serving

The calories are so low, you could easily add some diced celery, onion, etc to make it even bulkier.
I was thinking of adding some fresh spinach next time, too.

What IS fat-free cheese? It tastes like rubber. 2 T of real parmesan cheese is only 20 calories.

ETA: I have to make one-serving recipes because I will eat it all!

A DD treat recipe- haven't tried it yet, just found it, but it sounds yummy!


Easy Coconut Peanut Butter Balls (Zagnut Balls)

Ingredients:


•3 T freshly-ground, all natural honey roasted peanut butter
•1 T Swerve sweetener (or granulated erythritol or sweetener of choice)
•2 T shredded unsweetened coconut
•1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
•1/8 tsp. xanthan gum
•1 egg white
•Extra shredded coconut for rolling




Directions:




1. Preheat 325 degrees.

2. Mix together all ingredients aside from the extra coconut for rolling in a small bowl.

3. Shape dough into 1 inch balls and roll them in extra coconut until completely covered.

4. Place the cookies on a lightly greased or parchment lined baking sheet and bake for 7-10 minutes or until light golden brown at the base. Allow to cool for at least 15 minutes on the baking sheet before moving.

5. Move to a cooling rack. The cookies will firm up as they cool, but will remain crumbly. Yum!




Makes 10 cookies.

Mix the spices and rub on the steak, set aside at room temperature for 10 minutes.
Blend the avocado and dressing, add a little pepper, set aside.

Heat a skillet or foreman type grill. Spray lightly with cooking spray and sear the steak about 1 minute on each side. Cook an additional minute if it's not cooked as much as you like.
Slice thinly and divide among the 2 "taco" rounds.
Top with the remaining ingredients.
*I didn't include salsa, but you can mix 1T into the avocado ranch dressing for 5 more calories*

Whole recipe makes 2 tacos:

This is recipe looks yummilicious. I just added it to my recipe file. Thanks Dottie!

Since it's Fall I thought I'd make a dessert with apples for a DD. I would prefer apple crisp this is really good for WAY less calories.

Baked Apple
1 medium apple
1 tsp Splenda brown sugar
diet black cherry soda

scoop out the core and seeds from the apple. Do not go all the way to the bottom, just scoop out enough to form a well inside the apple. Fill the well with soda almost to the top. Sprinkle sugar on top. Bake on 350 degrees until the apple looks soft and the skin loosens up.

I used my toaster oven and it didn't take that long. The skin just slides off and you are left with a sweet and pink baked apple! You can add a few raisins too if you have extra calories and they plump up while the apple bakes. I actually had this for my UD dessert also and it was really satisfying.

I split this three ways for three meals at 115 cals each, a good amount of protein and bulk, and very tasty with a bit of extra S & P.
That is a great idea, I am going to try this! Thanks

LC cheesecake mousse

I just experimented and came out with a yummy cheesecake mousse!

1 1/2 c. Unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1 oz cream cheese (I used regular, you could use light)
15 drops Sweetzfree (any liquid sweetener should work)
1/4 tsp Penzeys Mexican vanilla, or to taste
1/4 tsp Penzeys almond extract
3/4 tsp glucomannan powder

I mixed all this up in my Ninja until it was smooth, then chilled. It tastes just like cheesecake. It's a nice, filling snack, too!

Makes 4 servings.

LC mini meatloafs

This turned out so delicious and perfect for chilly days! Super easy to pack low cal portions for DD lunch at work, no measuring!

1 lb ground beef
2 eggs
1 oz (about 1/3 bag) pork rinds, finely crushed or ground up.
3 Tbl ketchup
10 green olives, finely chopped
Minced onion
Garlic salt
Pepper

Topping:
4 Tbl ketchup
2 Tbl honey BBQ sauce

Of course you can add or change seasonings to your taste. The green olives add a nice salty taste. Mix all ingredients well and divide evenly into a 12-muffin tin. Bake at 375 until brown, about 20 min, then add topping and bake until well cooked and bubbly, about another 20 min. Makes 12 meatloaf "muffins."
