I just now mixed up a batch of Medi gummies...found on the medi dessert thread from a long time ago (6/17/2009 #18). I've been wanting to make them for a while. I made with 4 packets plain gelatin and 1 packet SF orange jello mix....sounds like all the calories will actually probably be protein calories and very chewey. Check it out!
I made these today, and I really like them. This recipe is a keeper!

Debbie - When you make the medi gummies..what do you count the calories as? Are they protein calories? Or are they just a "snack" in addition to the 500 daily calories? Thanks!

Personally, I counted them as protein calories.

Question: Do you count Flaxseed meal as protein? I have been adding 2 tablespoon with my eggwhites for a tasty morning pancake.

Ask your clinic....I don't think we're supposed to add actual flaxseed til maintenance. It has fat in it too. It's good to know that you like the way it tastes though, obviously it's ground?

I found this on the medi-friendly breakfast thread

Reduced Fat Flaxseed Muffins

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I agree with Robyn, these are really good! I modified them a bit to make them lower calorie and lower fat...


Serving Size: 1

1/4 cup flax meal
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 packet splenda packet (I use stevia)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup eggbeaters
1 teaspoon Promise fat free margerine spread

Is the unsweetened cocoa you use, like Hershey's Cocoa in the brown "box" or something that you buy from Netritian?

I can't find the original post I read about using greek yogurt, some sugar free jello powder, and FF cool whip, but I had this today (I used the peach flavor of SF Jello) and cut up 1/2 of a nectarine in it too and OMG this is wonderful! I was a little short on protein calories today, so this was great. I'll have it for breakfast sometime too

Is there a brand of Greek Yogurt you use? The ones I looked at were high in carbs? Also word of advice to those that haven't tried the cocoa almonds. Stay far away from them OMG they are addictive. I finally gave mine away because I couldn't stop eating them. Even in the 100 cal. pack I would overdo.
I've been a forum lurker for awhile but I'm to the point where I need to be accountable too. So here goes:
B Chicken Sausage
L Grilled Chix SF Jello w/ FF Cool Whip
S Gummies
D Gr Chix and Chix Sausage
S Dannon 1 carb yogurt and 6 blueberries

30 min on treadmill
15 min on bike
20 min on toning machines

I use ANY brand FF greek yogurt. Most are around 90 - 100 calories. I read somewhere that the carbs in yogurt are OK, because of the glyceme index. I know I've talked to the RN at my Medi center and she said it's fine, as long as it doesn't throw me out of ketosis.....which it never has.
I'm not on my home computer but I'm sure there is an explaination on low carb friends somewhere if you do a search.

Desert Rose's Mini Eggplant Pizzas

Jo, I just wanted to thank you for the inspiration to make these eggplant pizzas.

I had fresh eggplant and basil from a local farm and wasn't sure what to do with it. I used Rao's Homemade brand marinara sauce, which had fewer carbs than other brands and tasted delicious. Next time I want to try parmesan cheese to get a medi-friendly version of eggplant parm.

Hi everyone!
Does anyone have any words of wisdom on the recipes that involve mixing protein powder with a diet soda (e.g. vanilla powder with diet orange soda)? I have tried a couple of combos and they taste great, but I'm getting an "ice cream float" effect with the soda expanding everywhere...then it's too airy to really stir it up well.

Thanks!
Amy

I cannot fine the Dannon light and fit carb control ANYWHERE, so I have been using Greek yogurt too (and am glad to see it on here). I but the plain, individual cups and mix about half of one with the Walden Farms chocolate dip, it truly satisfies a serious chocolate pudding craving or frozen, a chocolate ice cream craving! Although it is not exactly on "the list", I have not been out of a high level of Ketosis since day 4 and the scale keeps on moving down (I'm terrible about weighing every day, but it's truly because I use my Wii Fit every day!). We'll see what the doc says on Wednesday : )

I find it at Super Target. It can be a very small spot in the yogurt section squeezed between other Dannons. If you have Kroger, they have a low carb yogurt called Carbmasters than many like (I prefer Dannon).

I will look, and look again, but I have been to Albertson's, Target (although ours is a "faux" super Target, not as big a selection), Publix (2 locations), Winn-Dixie, and Wal Mart and have not seen it anywhere in my area! Boo! The best I could find was plain Greek yogurt, and I limit myself to 3 ounces to control carbs (but mixed with the Walden Farms chocolate dip,mmmmmm....delish!).

I truly could be blind, though, so I will keep on looking : )

My DH uses diet soda with his protein powder. Usually he either puts the soda in a blender, or in a shaker and runs the soda first to get rid of some of the fizz. Then he adds the powder, and blends.

That well could be due to the fact that milk is not on the plan and a lot of us use almond milk as a substitute.

Does anyone know if it's ok to use almond flour on the plan? I found a recipe in a magazine that sounded delicious for protein scones that use almond flour, but I don't want to start looking for it if it's not approved for the Medi plan. Thanks!

There should be no problem with almond flour, or with coconut flour either. Both are hard to find but you might check with the netrition site for a start. If you do not find them there, try your local stores.

I have worked with both...just be sure to read the information really well.

BostonSue, your cranberry scones recipe sounds delish but it calls for 1/2 cup of oatmeal. Oatmeal is not allowed in acute. I was thinking - can it be substituted for oat or wheat bran?

Cranberry Scones

Honestly, I cheated, included the oats and made sure I had excess carbs leftover to stay under my daily limit. I also cut the recipe down to a third, so that I only ended up with 8 small scones and sent the leftovers away with my fiance, so I wouldn't cheat daily. Each scone has about 1/3 Tbsp of oats.

That being said, I really couldn't taste the oats, so I think substituting for oat or wheat bran would probably work fine or just adding additional almond meal.

I bake with both of these. Love them!! I have use coconut flour more often lately due to the lower calorie content (at least in the brand I use). I use almond flour as a replacement for "crust" or breading on things occassionally. Coconut flour absorbs a lot of moisture though, so it can be tricky at first.

Personally, I don't feel like consuming a teaspoon of oats was cheating, since I did not go over my daily carbs and I stayed in ketosis, but I agree that this recipe shouldn't be posted on the Medi board. I flagged the moderator to have the recipe deleted.

Sorry I missed the oats when I originally posted the recipe - I was looking at the total carbs.

Thanks for the accountability though.
