I tried this recipe for home made sugar free jello , I have to tell you , this is wrong . I think there needs to be more gelatin added . Mine didn't set like it should, it is a softer set . I am up for any thing that I can make myself , Just to let you know....it needs more gelatin added for a firmer set like store brand.

Not a recipe, but if you're in a hurry, Lean Cuisine Garlic Beef & Broccoli only has 170 calories and it's pretty good!

Ooh...another variation: I think I would skip the bread, sautee the cabbage, melt the cheese into it, and stuff it into the mushroom cap with the onion and dressing!

Good lo-cal salad dressing option

Here's a great salad dressing. Not sure if you can get it where you live, but it's called Old Cape Cod fat free Sesame Ginger--40 calories for 2 TBL. It doesn't taste like a lo-cal dressing at all! I know a lot of us like the Walden Farms dressings, but they taste too chemically to me. And I don't enjoy eating them. This dressing is sweet but not sickly sweet and has a nice Asian finish. Worth trying if you're looking for a good dressing you can serve to others as well. They won't suspect it's diet.

This makes a big DD meal with 4oz of lean ground beef @ 160 calories. You can use less, or sub finely diced chicken for a lower calorie option.

DD Beef Stroganoff
Ingredients

4 oz 93/7 Lean Ground Beef (generic)
1/4 cup Onions; chopped - about 1/4 of a medium onion
1 medium stalks Celery; sliced thin
1 wedge Laughing cow Light Swiss Cheese
1/4 Very Low Sodium beef Flavor Bouillion Packets
3 tbsp unsweetened Almond Milk
3 oz Fettuccini Shirataki Pasta
salt and pepper to taste
Directions

Rinse noodles, cut up if desired and set aside to drain well.
Break up ground beef and saute with the onions and celery until the beef is cooked and the veggies softened.
Add everything except the noodles and heat through until smooth. Taste and add salt and pepper. (mrs dash original is good at this point, too).
Add the noodles and coat well, heat through and serve.

1 serving @ 230cals; 10.5g fat; 9g carbs; 2g fiber; 25g protein

Make this even more filling and nutritious: toss in 1-2 cups fresh spinach when the beef is cooked and before adding the sauce ingredients, let that wilt for a mere 10 calories for 2 cups.

I'm especially fond of anchovies, so I'll be making that for tomorrow, but the second recipe looks just as good!

The salt, I know!!!! If I can be brave enough to face the scale the next morning and ignore the fluid retention number, I will definitely have them. I grew up on those, and they are a favorite of mine.

Shoot, I'll just drink a lot more water!!!

Down Day Pumpkin Pie: created by Beeb

Ingredients for crust:

4 TBS Oat Fiber
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 TBS Brown Sugar Sub
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp gluc powder
2 TBS egg beaters or egg white
2 TBS Walden Farms Marshmallow Fluff (or add 2 more TBS egg beaters or egg white if you don't have)
2 TBS water (or more but not more than 2 more TBS if the batter is too stiff)

How to make crust:

Mix all ingredients together until well mixed. Spray a small low sided bowl or small glass pie pan with cooking spray. Gently press (I used the back of a large spoon) the crust mixture into the bowl or pie plate, spreading it evenly up the sides and on the bottom.

Microwave for 2 to 3 minutes until is looks and feel dry. Put aside.

Pumpkin Pudding Filling Ingredients:

1/2 cup Calorie Countdown Fat Free Milk (or you could use water here if you want or a nut milk)
2 TBS canned pumpkin
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Dash of ground cloves
1 TBS Brown Sugar Sub
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp gluc powder
Sweetener to taste

How to make pudding:

Put all ingredients in a blender, magic bullet or appliance of this type and blend until thick and creamy, like pudding

After pie crust has cooled, put the pudding mixture on the crust and bake in a 350 degree oven for 20 to 30 minutes, or until it looks "set". Let cool, put in fridge to get cold and enjoy!


whole pie: 43 calories
1/4 pie (wedge shaped) 10.75 calores
It was recently brought to my attention that the spice calories are not accounted for in this recipe. I never count spice calories because I just don't, never have and still lost amazingly well, but will now let you all know that the spices in this recipe, if you so chose to count them, will add 10 more calories bringing the whole pie up to 53 calories instead of 43.

Yes, I know 10 calories may mean a lot to some and I apologize for this over sight. It's still a great bang for you calorie buck, even with the added 10 calories! And the taste is just amazing, I think!

Beeb's recipe for pumpkin pie got me to thinking today about how low calorie my usual sugar-free pumpkin pie filling is. With some tweaks, it can be great on a DD. I have always used the recipe on the back of the Libby's can and subbed Calorie Countdown for the cream, and a combo of Sweetzfree and E for the sugar. I never bother with a crust, and just eat it as a side dish.

I figured out that if I sub Unsweetened Almond Milk for the CC, and egg substitute (60 cals/1/2 cup) instead of the 2 whole eggs, I can eat a quarter of the pie for only 62 calories! I'm going to actually bake it on Wednesday and see how it turns out. I don't know why it wouldn't be good. And it's low carb, good nutrition, as well.

And Beeb, those ten extra calories in your pie are no big deal. It is, indeed, still a great bang for your calorie buck, lol.

I made this the other day...so simple, it's hardly a recipe!

Creamed Asparagus
1 can cut asparagus (63 calories)
2 Laughing Cow Herb & Garlic light wedges (70 calories) (133 total)

Heat asparagus (on stove or in microwave) and drain, reserving a little liquid; in serving bowl*, mix asparagus, 1 tbsp liquid (or milk) and cheese. Add black pepper if desired.

*easier clean-up than mixing in pan

I made another batch using 1/2 cup 1% cottage cheese (instead of Laughing Cow) and some onion & garlic powder. Not quite as tasty and 10 more calories, but more protein! Maybe next time I'll use 1/4 cup cottage cheese & 1 wedge.

I generally don't like canned veggies but there is something about mushy salty canned asparagus that makes me happy!

Hi Laurie, good to see you here. I always make my pumpkin pies w/ the almond milk but I've never tried it with just the egg whites. I might have to try that for Christmas. Let me know how yours turns out.

Kind of a DD Tuna Casserole

6oz chopped cabbage (about 3 cups - 42 calories)
1 packet (2.6oz) tuna in water (80 calories)
1 laughing cow or other light cheese (35 calories)
1 tsp cheddar cheese powder (Kroger, land o lakes, molly mc butter, etc) (5 calories)

Place cabbage and 1/2 cup water into a lidded pan and add some salt and pepper. Steam until just soft, turn the heat up and cook some of the water out, then add everything else and heat through and melt cheese. Stir well.

162 calories, approx 10g carbs; 3g fiber; 22g protein

If you can spare the calories, cook the cabbage to dry then mix, put it all in a small oven-safe dish and top with a few tablespoons of bread crumbs and some butter spray and bake until the topping browns (about 55 calories for 2T dry progresso bread crumbs)

Breakfast Cookies From Hungry Girl

Easy, and quick for the DD on the go JUDDD BUDDD!


HG's Grab 'n Go Breakfast Cookies

PER SERVING (1 cookie): 154 calories, 1.5g fat, 166mg sodium, 32.5g carbs, 5g fiber, 10.5g sugars, 5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 4*

Ingredients:
1/2 cup regular oats (not instant)
6 tbsp. whole-wheat flour
1/4 cup Fiber One bran cereal (original), ground to a breadcrumb-like consistency in a blender or food processor
1/4 cup Splenda No Calorie Sweetener (granulated)
1/3 cup Gerber Peaches (or another brand of pureed peaches, found in the baby food aisle)
1/4 cup canned pure pumpkin
1/4 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
1 tbsp. golden raisins
1 tbsp. Ocean Spray Craisins (original)

Kelp Noodle Soup

Quick and Easy Kelp Noodle Soup

4 oz. ready to eat kelp noodles, rinsed
1 cup mushroom slices
1 cup celery chopped
2 Wyler's beef bouillon cubes
2 cups water
1/2 serrano chili (if you like spice)

Combine all ingredients and boil for 10 minutes. If you like veggies softer, saute before you start the broth. This makes a huge single serving. I could only eat half.

Total calories: 37

This is super basic and can be modified infinitely depending on what vegetables or spices you choose to add.

I have no idea who the OP was because she reposted.

This recipe has been on here before but I thought I'd repost it for those of you who are new or didn't see it Took them to a "Girls Night" party and nobody knew the were "healthy"-they were a huge hit!

Pineapple Angel Food Cupcakes

1 box Duncan Hines Angel Food cake (add water only kind)
1 20 oz. can crushed pineapple in its own juice.

Mix dry cake mix and pineapple together (no water). Fill cupcakes 2/3 full. Place batter in fridge between batches and it bakes better. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 min or golden brown.

Delish and only 69 calories each, fat free! I put the nutritional content in the food data base under "generic pineapple angel food cupcakes". Enjoy!

~Marnie


I couldn't find Duncan Hines so I used Betty Crocker fat free, just add water cake mix and generic crushed pineapple in it's own juice. I got 30 cupcakes and it came out to (per serving) 67 calories, 15 carbs, 0 fat, and 1 protein.

I also saw someone responded they make theirs exactly the same but substitute canned pumpkin for the pineapple.

Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. You're right, I hadn't seen this recipe before!

This one looks like a real keeper as I just LOVE pineapple and/or pumpkin.

Combine all ingredients and boil for 10 minutes. If you like veggies softer, saute before you start the broth. This makes a huge single serving. I could only eat half.

Total calories: 37

This is super basic and can be modified infinitely depending on what vegetables or spices you choose to add.
Are kelp noodles the same as sharitaki noodles?

cabbage and salsa stirfry

3 cubs tri color cabbage slaw 40 cals
1 cup mushrooms sliced 15 cals
1tsp minced garlic
1T jarred red pepper and onion 10
a little chicken broth to wet it
1T diced jalapenos 5 cals
pepper and sea salt
cook this down until everything is nice and soft, then i added 2T peach salsa and let it cook a little more. I was gonna add laughing cheese but decided it was just too good without it and i didnt need any meat either. It makes a huge bowl of course, I couldnt even finish it all.

Nope, they're made from kelp but are also very low calorie. I tried them and they tasted pretty good, but gave me an upset stomach. Lots of people here have no issues with them though. I got mine at Whole Foods in the Asian aisle and they don't need to be refrigerated until they are opened. They also had them at Whole Foods near the shirataki.
