PB2 is a powder, reconstituted with water to make "real" PB with a fraction of the fat. I got mine at a outdoors/camping/hiking store. Good in mixes for a PB taste, like a chocolate-PB snack. I still haven't tried it just as a spread.

I noticed that my local supermarket has some sort of fat reduced chicken thighs, that come in at 170 cals per 100g whereas my calorie counter says that the same type of thighs (boneless, skinless) would be 220 or so.

I also discovered recently that beef can be as low as, or lower, than boneless/skinless chicken breast. Really lean sirloin (fat trimmed, not eaten) and also flank steak come in at really low calories.

i tend to save my calories on DD for the dinner, so if I can get a full 8oz of meat in, I'm a happy girl!

that above statement was intended to be about food

Springerhill Ranch has a 98% lean ground beef that's 120 cals for 4oz. I've only found it at Randalls (safeway/albertsons).

It is in powder form. 2 tbsp PB2 to 1 tbsp water. You can use SF syrups, too. I make it with water most of the time, but I add 1/2 a splenda and sometimes some cocoa powder.

I buy it from netrition.

Hello, I'm not a JUDDDER but read your threads and really appreciate the ideas. I was wondering if you all have a "veggie" thread similar to this one. Thanks!

I don't think one's been started, b/c most veggies are pretty low calorie, and on JUDDD, many people don't track the carbs (which is what I'm assuming you're asking about, really LC veggies?).

But I think I've seen some "what new veggie are you eating" type of threads, you'd have to search for them... if I find one, I'll bump it up for you!

Have you ever made zucchini lasagna?

Thinly slice large zucchini length wise into long strips. You substitute the zucchini for lasagna noodles.

I use ground turkey breast to make a red meat sauce (like spaghetti sauce). I substitute cottage cheese for ricotta. Oh, and in the sauce I add lots of mushrooms, chopped pepper, chopped celery, sometimes grated carrots and grated cabbage (or some from a bad that is pre-shredded).

Then I alternately layer the zucchini, sauce, low-skim mozzarella & cottage cheese. I top it off with sliced tomatoes, sprinkle herbs like oregano on top and sprinkle parmesian cheese on top of that. Then bake it for about 40 minutes. Really, really yummy.

Zay, do you mean "vegetable" or "vegetarian"?
(Since we're discussing protein on this thread...I'd have thought you were looking for low-cal vegetarian protein.)

I'm not a huge fan of tofu, but I find it more filling than most other choices. Silken tofu only has 45 calories for 3 oz... not sure why it is so much lower than others.

maybe b/c it's less dense? since it's a looser texture (I use it sometimes to do a tiramisu-like dessert) it's probably lower calorie than the same amount of firm tofu.

There was also a good tread or 2 about zucchini tots and zucchini pancakes. I'll try to bump if I can.

I was in Whole Foods the other day and saw that they are selling it now. I picked one up and two different employees came by and asked what I do with it. I had never even tried it or wanted to really, but I bought it because you all here talk about it.

I got the chocolate. Maybe I'll mix some up since it is a DD.

I actually prefer it to "regular" peanut butter. I sure hope my Whole Foods starts carrying it. I rarely order anything.

On an UD, try mixing it as you normally would with the water, then add a T of EVCO. It tastes amazing! I've done that with both the chocolate and the regular PB2. Or on a DD if you don't count CO.

I have some EVCO on order from netrition. I'll surely try that on an UD!
