I'll have to try this mini meatloaf recipe, too. I do make mini loaves using a different recipe and they freeze beautifully!

Made the mini meat loafs. They r yum. I did not like the mouse. The mouth feel kinda grossed me out. I might try it with chia seed next time.

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.
Also I may add one cup chicken broth (10 cals) to one bowl of the queso/chicken mixture and voila' you have toasty warm soup for a cold day.

Ricotta Spinach Balls

The recipe makes 15 portions. They are delish.

Ricotta Spinach Balls LC
Gnocchi
Pre-heat oven to 350
Butter a 9x13" Pyrex baking dish

1 lb. fresh baby spinach
8 oz. whole ricotta cheese
3 tbs. freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 egg yolk, beaten
4 tbs. butter
Salt and pepper to taste

Place baby spinach in boiling water for one minute.
Remove to an ice bath and shock to stop it cooking.
Drain well, then squeeze it DRY. Chop it.
Place in bowl and add 2 tbs. butter and all the
rest of the ingredients.

Form into balls and lay in buttered dish.
Drizzle with the rest of the butter and sprinkle
with Parmesan cheese lightly

Bake 30 minutes.

Makes about 15 balls that will fill the baking dish without
them touching each other. Marinara sauce is good on top.

This recipe is very basic and much can be done with it.
Sauce, more cheese on top broiled, garlic. I hope that you
will try it, it's so very LC and yummy.
We used it as a side with steak on the BBQ
It's also a great lunch.
You can lower the calories by lowering the butter.

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."

Tammy, any idea what the calories would be using lean ground beef....say 90 or 93% lean?

Coconut Oil Mousse

Here is a coconut oil mousse that I have been eating for most of my calories on DD's recently that seems to have sparked some weight loss for me. It may be too high calorie for you and does not satisfy hunger for long but I am still eating it to test out its effects on my weight. The mousse is delicious by the way and can be made on UD's!! It is almost like coconut bark in nutrition but has a mousse like consistency to it now and tastes less oily but still very rich.

Coconut Oil Mousse: (~400 calories)

3 tbsp of coconut oil (360 calories)
2 tsp of maca powder (14 calories) - can substitute anything here like cocoa or leave this out
erythritol - 3 tbsp (0 calories) - can substitute any sweetener to taste
almond/coconut milk - 3 tbsp (7 calories) - this is to give more volume to the oil to make the mousse
vanilla bean seeds - .5 tsp (7 calories) - also optional but gives nice crunch
lecithin - 1 tsp (12 calories) - this is to emulsify the coconut oil with the milk

Gently heat everything but the vanilla and lecithin until coconut oil melted. Transfer to blender and while running add the vanilla and lecithin. Blend for 10 seconds and transfer to a dish and put in the fridge or freezer. After a few hours it should set
nicely.

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
Oooh I have all this in my fridge! I'm gonna make some for my next DD on Thursday! I wonder if I could use Laughing cow cheese or if that is too soft?

Yow! That looks delicious. I love shrimp but haven't cooked it much because my husband doesn't like shellfish. I'm going to the store this afternoon to pick up the ingredients. Ummm.

I'm new to JUDDD (second week) and am grateful to have found this group. So many wonderful recipes! Yesterday I decided to try Leo's Brownies in a Mug (recipe #13 or 14, page 1) on my next UD. I notice there's nothing wet in the recipe. Can that be correct?

That sounds wonderful and reminds me of something my mother used to make in the microwave. If you can afford the calories of a whole apple...core it and put some butter spray (butter if it's a UD) inside with sugar substitute of choice and cinnamon. I'm guessing the SF syrup would be delicious as well! Put in a bowl and cover with saran wrap and microwave for about a minute. You could even add a sprinkle of grapenuts for crunch.

I didn't work out the calories on this, but it's really low since you're discarding the veggies (or not lol).

Easy Vegetable Mushroom Broth

2oz dried mushrooms (I get the "Mushroom House Dried Mushroom, Forest Blend, 1-Pound " on amazon for $22. A pound of dried mushrooms is a lot and I've never have any grit in this brand).
1 large carrot, diced
1 small onion, diced
2 stalks celery, sliced
1-2 cloves garlic, sliced
salt, pepper, bay leaf, pinch of thyme and marjoram if you have it on hand
2 quarts water

In your saucepan, bring the mushrooms, bay leaf if using, and 1 quart water to a simmer. Cover, turn off the heat and let steep for 1 hour.
Add everything else and gently simmer, covered so you don't lose too much volume, for 1 hour.
Strain and store it.
You can puree the veggies into the broth, but make sure you count the calories then. Oh, and remove the bay leaf

Dried mushrooms have a very earthy flavor so this is not going to taste like a typical vegetable broth, but it's very good.

I usually add a little tamari or soy sauce to a cup of it, sometimes a smidge of tomato paste and pepper sauce as well.

I've just finished reading the 43 pages of recipes here. Thank you all for taking time to send such great recipes. You're incredible! I'm a recipe cook, not an inventive one, so I don't have much to share. I thought you might like these two, which are easy and more of a method than a recipe. The calories vary, depending on ingredients and amounts, so I haven't listed them.

CHICKEN BREAST or PORK TENDERLOIN, topped with salsa, and baked in the oven 30-60 minutes.

BAKED APPLES
Pippin (pie apples used years ago) or Granny Smith apples
Cinnamon
Halve the unpeeled apples, going from stem to bottom (not crosswise). Remove the cores. Put in a baking dish and sprinkle with the cinnamon. I like a lot. Bake at 350' until done to your taste. No sweetener needed because the cinnamon is sweet enough.

BBQ Pulled Chicken

Not sure if we have something like this yet, but I've got it going for tonight, and it's yummy.

You need a crockpot (or maybe you don't? But I used one).

I used chicken thighs-- my grocery store sells some lower fat ones that are 140cal for 100g of chicken thighs. But the fat cooks out of regular ones, and you don't eat much of the "juice"... so ymmv.

Recipe:
As many chicken thighs as you like (6-12, I'd say) You're going to weigh your serving at the end, right?

BBQ spices-- I make a SF rub from Dana Carpender's books (classic rub)

Liquid smoke-- I put in about 6-10 squirts

Other spices if you like-- I add in some extra garlic.

Mix all the above-- no extra liquid required-- right in the crockpot.

Cook on Low for about 6hrs. Could be longer, won't hurt it. So if you're away for 8hrs, that's fine.

Remove the chicken from the crockpot to a big bowl, and shred it into medium chunks and shreds using 2 forks.

Return to the liquid-- it will soak some up.

Serve and let some of the liquid drain out.

I found "calorie wise" bbq sauce (I know walden farms makes some too)-- mine is only 20 cal for 2T, which is about what I need for a serving.

So-- a good size serving (7oz or 200g) is 280 cal
bbq sauce-- 20cal

300 cal for awesome bbq on a dd.

Add some low cal slaw for veggies, and if you have room, a whole wheat or LC tortilla (mine's 100).

I not suffering on DD!
