I will take a look around, Tracy, and see what I can come up with.

Found this question over in the recipe thread and moved it over here to garner some responses.

Jo
Jo,

Thank you for monitoring the recipe thread. You know how much work we all put into it and I so appreciate your help in keeping it what it was meant to be. I spent the weekend in Boston visiting a dear friend that moved away and got to partake in the "Harvest Feast" in Plymouth, Mass. It was a very special weekend spent with very special friends and a great place to be this time of year.

Blessings!

Tracy, my neighbor and I are conspiring to create a Low-Carb Thanksgiving meal so I am searching for the same things! I'll post (or PM you) any recipe that I find that we might be able to modify. You may do better with stuffing in maintenance than I will, but I saw a few that looked doable! I'm going to test-drive some of those recipes in the upcoming weeks. My big concern will be gravy - how to do that???

Help!! What is a Medi-friendly Mexican appetizer? I will probably bring 2 apps, 1 I can eat and 1 that is for everyone else, but I would like them both to be super-yummy. Any ideas??

Jessica,

I'm not a recipe guru, but I have made a DELICIOUS Cilantro-Lime Shrimp dish that would be the perfect appetizer! It's SUPER EASY and soooo good (thanks for reminding me about this one).

This isn't my exact recipe (I'm still at work) but it's close - I just make it all easy by no measuring, just dumping the ingredients in a plastic bag to marinade. I also reserve about half to baste onto the shrimp as they are grilling! If you served these on skewers it would be great to mix it up with some veggies (peppers would be YUMM!) so the presentation is nice.

I actually think I'll make this soon! It is great, and I think your friends will be impressed! I would serve it with a black bean & corn salsa if you really wanted to go all out, but you'd have to stay away from that - and it's really not necessary.

Check it out: (and also google it to find other variations)

That sounds so good. I make shrimp fajitas that are marinated in a chili, cilantro, lime marinade.

Jennifer- Do you think that the shrimp would travel well? It's not at my house, so I'm not sure that we could grill at home and still have them taste good several hours later. Almost need something chilled, KWIM?

Susie- The Mexican deviled eggs actually sound really yummy! I may try to make those before Friday as a test and then take an additional "dip" or something else too Thanks!!

Jessica, the shrimp are GREAT chilled! That's why I suggested that one - easy and it travels well!

Susie, I never think of shrimp fajitas - OMG that sounds soooo good! That should DEFINITELY be in the cookbook - I LOVE the idea!!!

Susie's latest post in the Snack thread about the Buffalo Chicken dip is SO UNBELIEVABLY GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!! We have that recipe in our family (minus the bleu cheese) and it's GREAT! We call it bug dip (it came from a friend who named it LOL) and I LOVE IT! I usually eat it with wheat thins, but it is GREAT on celery!

I've been known to eat this as dinner - it's THAT good!

I'm so HAPPY and grateful to those of you who keep opening my eyes to delicious foods that we can eat! I'm so inspired to get in the kitchen right now!

How funny about the shrimp, because we have a staple dish in our home with the same flavors. We eat it weekly and in fact, it is marinating now for dinner tonight.

16-20 large raw shrimp (peeled): wash and put into ziploc. I add a tbsp of olive oil, splash of lime juice (I have a jar of juice in the fridge), salt/pepper and a couple shakes of cayenne pepper. The recipe I used asked for cilantro, but since I have a basil plant, I tried that. I took about 5 leaves and used scissors to "chop" them into the ziploc. WOW....it's divine.

If you go to the Dinner recipe thread, you will find some recipes for a lower calorie Thanksgiving Feast. Some of the recipes will require some tweaking, but are generally usable and doable.

I am adding a few more today. Starters mostly. I will add more as the days go on. These will be from the Mayo Clinic, and there are a whole lot of them.

Happy to do this for you all. There are tons of recipes from the Mayo Cllinic so I will be adding them as I have time to do so. There are recipes for everything for Thanksgiving dinner from beginning to end. So keep checking back in the various threads...I may have to split them out as there are so many, but I will group them together.

I made the Crustless Pumpkin Pie (Dessert Recipes, Post # 17). I had a 29 oz. can of pumpkin so I doubled the recipe, sprayed muffin pans with butter flavored Pam and filled about half-full. I had 24 individual servings that way. (The original recipe, doubled, would be 16 servings, so the calorie/carb count is a little less when doing 24 servings.) They bake in less time this way, too. Everybody loved them.

Thank you for sharing this recipe. My only problem with it is I suspect I may become addicted! This forum has helped me so much.

I have a general recipe question - when substituting milk in a recipe, does Almond Breeze typically substitute well, and if so, is it the same ratio. Example, if I want to make a White Chocolate Mocha, can I substitute 1 cup of unsweetened Almond Breeze for 1 cup of nonfat milk????

Here's the recipe I'm using as an example (from the Torani website):
Ingredients
1 1/2 Tbsp. Torani Sugar Free White Chocolate syrup
1 Tbsp. Torani Sugar Free Vanilla syrup
1 cup nonfat milk
1/4 cup espresso
Ground cinnamon and cocoa powder for garnish, if desired

Instructions
In a small saucepan, gently heat milk and Torani syrup together, whisking until frothy. Pour heated flavored milk into a tall glass and add brewed espresso*. Spoon a thin layer of foamed milk over top of beverage. Dust with cinnamon and cocoa powder, if desired.

*If needed, 1/2 cup strong brewed coffee can be substituted for 1/4 cup brewed espresso.

So i was searching through here about spaghetti squash and found it was a no no! But my clinic said it was okay to use in my 2nd week as a vegetable. Any opinions?
Thanks for your help!

Hey team, What are your thoughts on hot chocolate....? Still under strict control of week one but was wondering if anybody has scammed a way to make hot chocolate legal ?

I'd say hot chocolate is a definite no during the first week. If you are craving chocolate, try having a cup of tea. It has been proven to curb chocolate cravings and is far healthier for you. I know the first week is really rough (I was going nuts from culinary boredom!) but if you tough it out, week two gets so much better!

I notice you're in NYC, so not far from me at all! Do you go to the clinic in SI or down here in NJ?

Thanks ! Staten Island. I find from reading these boards that the rules tend to vary slightly from center to center, no?

Yes we have found that clinics do differ in "allowables" on some items. I would also say no on the Sugar Free Hot Chocolate in week 1.
