This is one of my sister's favorites at the moment. A great side dish!

Roasted Cauliflower with Sea Salt
3 cups cauliflower florets
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. flaked sea salt
coarsely ground black pepper to taste (optional)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Toss cauliflower florets with olive oil and sea salt. Spread cauliflower in an even layer on a cookie sheet. Roast 10 minutes. Turn cauliflower over. Roast another 10-15 minutes, or until cauliflower is just browned and fork tender. Season with more salt and black pepper if desired.

Serves 6.

WOE: Atkins with a Twist
Start Date: November 2007
Gluten and Dairy Free Induction Pancakes

5 Eggs, beaten
200mls Cococnut Cream
1/4 Cup Coconut, ground to a flour
1/2 Cup Xylitol, ground to a flour and mixed with coconut flour
Vanilla Essence
Pinch Baking Soda
Xylitol and stevia to taste

1. Beat all ingredients together
2. Cook in heated pan, I find they need little oil because of the fats in the recipe itself.
3. Eat with your choice of sugarfree syrup, xylitol and lemon juice. Great with whipped coconut cream and berries after induction.

You can make crepes with these or fatter pancakes and pikelets too. My brother and his mates ate these, and I only told them after that they were much better than the sugar laden crap they normally make. They were really impressed. This made enough for four people to be very very very full!

This is an old, old family recipe that we always have at any family gathering. It may sound a little strange, but trust me, this is delicious.

Wilted Lettuce

Dozen eggs
1 lb. of bacon
1 head of lettuce
1 dollop of mayo

Hardboil the eggs and dice them up. Chop up the bacon and fry it. Drain all of the grease. It's best for this recipe to use paper towels to soak some of it up as well. Chop up a head of lettuce and mix all of the ingredients together. I would guess the mayo is about half a cup. Just add some, mix, and taste. You just want to give the lettuce a light coating. You'll know when it's right.

This is a great snack fresh or cold.
This does sound good! I'm going to make it and add some fresh chopped tomato. A BLT without the bun!

Thanks ~


Terri

i dont measure, ever....but this stuff is SO GOOD and i truly dislike egg salad! sometimes i like to eat it warm...

For some reason I think this would be good with eggs, mayo, bacon & blue cheese crumbles, stuffed inside celery sticks. Or maybe on top of cucumber slices, as an appetizer. Gotta try it, I'll let you know.

Also, I'm not a huge fan of cold boiled eggs, either. But I do like them hot sometimes for breakfast. I nuke the sliced boiled eggs and top with butter, salt & pepper. Yum!

Thank you all for a great thread!!

PS: I LOVE that signature!! The herpes of craft supplies, indeed!!

Thank you Dottie and gettinserious for this wonderful recipe! I can't believe I made something that tasted so good!! And it was so easy!

1/2 bottle of Ragu alfredo sauce (gettin used Classico Brothers portabello mushroom)
salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste
extra parm for on top

Brown beef with onions. Drain if needed. Add spices to taste then add mushrooms and broccoli. Cover and let steam for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Raise heat to high, pour on alfredo and let simmer 2-3 minutes. Top with parm and enjoy

Serves 4



This was good, but didn't have high reviews. I thought it was awesome, but then I used a different alfredo. If you don't like Ragu, try a new one. Classico Brothers has about 5 different kinds of alfredo, so test and see what you like.

I think I will try this and use fresh mushrooms. Has anyone tried this using homemade LC alfredo sauce? I have seen some recipes for this around. Will have to go looking.

Just have to mention - this recipe is really yummy and so easy. Try it.

Heat butter in a saucepan on med/high heat, allowing it to brown a bit (not much about a golden hue) and bubble. Add Splenda and cook for a few minutes, stirring at 20 second intervals. Then add cocoa powder. Stir constantly and cook a couple more minutes. Remove from heat.

Line a pan with foil or parchment, something to prevent sticking to pan. Pour into pan and freeze.

Notes: Additions can be made to this like PB, raspberry flavor, etc... There really is no limit.


Now, this is in the middle of freezing at the moment, so it very well COULD or NOT set up like coconut butter. When I checked and taste tested it, it was more fudgy with a toffee crunch running through it. YUM!

ftfh28, my family loves you! I could not figure out where I had found this recipe, and I've made it (and variations) probably 6 times in the past few weeks. My entire family loves this stuff. No more wasted lettuce here.

I've added a small tomato, chopped, and it is just like a BLT. I've also made it with avocado added. You pretty much can't go wrong here.

This is really so much better than you'd think. Honestly. Try it

Beat together eggs and cream cheese with a fork, big lumps of cream cheese is fine. Mix in veggies. Pour into a nonstick sprayed pan (I used a corning ware souffle and it turned out great, but stuck somewhat to pan ) and bake at 350 for 20-30 mins or until set.




This looks *great* to me and I've already bought ingredients to make it for the a.m. In a different post on this thread, Gettingserious remarked that 1/2 cup of a casserole was what she considered a serving size. Okay, but *HOW MANY CARBS* is one serving of this recipe? This is my 1st. day and I don't have the hang of this yet. Anyone here willing to try and help me, please?

I do want to say that I did search online for carb amounts in foods hoping to figure this out for myself. None of the sites I used translated into useful info for me. (Numbers of whole spears of broccoli for instance in place of cup measurements etc.)

By my book, the whole recipe comes out to about 19 carbs. If someone can plug it into their program, we can come out with a better estimate.

Thanks so much, Soobee. I'd estimated it best I could and didn't come up to that amount. Not realizing this, I'd have been defeated before even beginning. You saved me!!! In fact, I'll hold up preparing this until someone can, as you say, "plug it into their program" for a better estimate.
