Does anyone have any suggestions for alternatives to Almond Milk? I'm allergic to nuts, so I can't use it. I bought the Medi Protein Shake Powder to use in the pancake recipe, but don't know how else to use the protein powder. Alot of the beverage recipes have Almond Milk, so I'm just looking for ideas of how to use the powder but avoid the Almond/nut milk.

Thanks.

Almond Milk

There is hemp milk and rice milk you could try! All the recipes on the message boards are great!

You could also do crystal light or similar as your liquid. I have also mixed mine with ice, a little water and carbmaster yogurt and they come out really creamy. The hemp and rice milk are good suggestions and unsweetened soy milk might be good too, if you tolerate soy well.

Nut Question..............I am in week two. Medi told me to add good fat for my gallbladder and my paper says to have 12 almonds. I looked on the bag and it said 160 calories, does that count toward my daily calories?

Absolutely! Every thing that goes in your mouth counts! Everything!
Try looking for Emerald or Blue Diamond 100 calorie almond packs..saves a ton of calories and the amount is okay.

@NoMoreBK- The only problem I had when adding in snacks is that I would end up short on protein. The PA at the clinic told me to keep reminding myself that it's not a 500 calorie diet- it's 500 calories of protein. Don't make the same mistake I did, and subtract those calories from your 500, or you'll end up short. Sometimes this can make your weight loss slower because your body is trying to conserve the calories and shuts down the metabolism.

My clinic told me to have no more than 25gr. carb per day. I read in some of the recipe posts about subtracting the fiber and sugar alcohols to get "net carbs". So, are the net carbs what I would subtract from my daily amount?

Basically, for me, and from my clinic, a carb is a carb. Net carbs is a calculation that is certainly usable. However, for me, I prefer to look at the actual carb count...even now in wellness, that is what I prefer to use. Others use the net carbs. What it really comes down to is personal preference.

My clinic never mentioned anything about net carbs, so I've always counted the "whole" (or is that "gross" ?) carbs. It's safer for me AND easier to figure out & journal that way!

I made the cauliflower rounds from the Snack recipes and they were wonderful. My whole family liked them. When baked them come out like a pita. If you pan fry them with Pam they come out like potato pancakes. I am going to go out today and buy some more cauliflower to make some more. Between the oopsies and these rounds, I have never eaten so much cauliflower, eggs and cream cheese. Who knew how versatile these foods could be!

That's so funny ~ my hubby (who doesn't need to diet) & I discussed that recently! Even he loves the cauliflower rounds, so we have them like bread for dinner sometimes. I made some beef soup the other night & threw in some of the leftover riced cauliflower - it was a lot like rice. Cauliflower used to seem boring to me, but boy is it ever welcome in our house now!

The Cauliflower Pizza is #14 in the Medi Lunch Thread, however I used Fat Free Mozz and 2 Egg Whites instead of 1 Regular Egg.

I use diertac's Cauliflower Rounds recipe, which is #26 in Medi Friendly Snack recipes. These are so versatile that I make up a bunch of them with a whole cauliflower & store them in the fridge. They can be little pizza crusts, or can replace bread for just about anything... last night I made myself a "cheeseburger" with a veggie burger & veggie cheese between 2 cauliflower rounds... yummy!

Ann the "cheeseburger" sounds so good.

I am going to make the cauliflower crust again, however instead of Pizza, I am going to melt FF Cheddar Cheese, salsa, and some pulled grilled chicken, and of course some chulula hot sauce.

How do you prepare the cauliflower or zucchini for these recipes? I keep wanting to try them - but my "skills" are quite limited in the kitchen!

It's really quite easy, Keri ~ your kids could probably help, 'cause I believe to make these right, you gotta get your hands in the stuff!
I cut up the cauliflower into smallish pieces, then boil it until it's quite soft. Then it's supposed to be "riced," but I have no ricer, so I just squash it up real fine with a big strong spoon. Add the other ingredients (I use Eggbeaters & Mozarella cheese), make little balls of the "batter" and flatten them out to cook. diertac's recipe works for me! It's hard to mess up ...

Thank you Ann! It was the term "riced" that had me thinking this was a difficult recipe because I had no clue what that meant! Squashing I can do!!! I think I'll be buying some cauliflower for next week! And I have been CRAVING a burger...I'd love to make these as a "bun"!

I ran my steamed cauliflower through my food processor on the cheese grater setting and it did come out like rice.

Using zucchini, I just grate it raw and unpeeled; mix it in just like that.

Has anyone tried using the cauliflower crust recipe but used it to cover a chicken breast kind of like a "breaded" chicken cutlet? I wanted to try this to make a modified chicken parm.

I use Fiber One for that sort of thing....crush it up and roll the chicken breast in it. Works quite well.
