Hi JStasinos,
I am not much of a cook, but their may be too much of a fat content in the boiled chicken broth. It may be better for you to shred the boiled chicken into a store bought fat free broth. Probably, wont taste the same but at least it would cut down on the fat intake.

It's too bad relevant posts get buried in the "lump everything into one thread" format.

Miracle Noodles??

Has anyone ever tried Miracle Noodles? Wondering if they are any good? I have heard a few comments that they smell terrible and you have to drown out the taste with strong flavors like garlic and onion or hot pepper. Worth the puchase?

Sherri- Don't know that recipe but I highly doubt that anything using Pringles (fat free or otherwise) will be OK on the Acute phase of Medi. Sorry I think there are some buffalo-chicken-type recipes in the recipe threads, though!

Sheri, that is a Hungry Girl recipe you're thinking of! I'm positive that someone here adapted it for Medi, so you definitely want to use the one that works for us!

Hi Fit2010,

Just above the thread posts and below the pages there is a link to search this forum. If you want to search the entire site go to Medi Weightloss - Low Carb Friends and in the same general area there are search functions. You just need to type in the topic, being as general as possible without being too general.

Good luck.

Thanks, Susie!

I have a question about PB2. Does anyone use it? The directions say to take 2 Tbsps PB2 and mix with 1 Tbsp water. Then the serving size is 2 Tbsp. Is this the 2 Tbsp of mix, or 2Tbsp of actual reconstituted PB2?

Either way it was really good, but mixed up 1 batch sure doesn't equal 2 Tbsp.

TIA!

I need to take a minute to say a huge THANK YOU to Susie (SDC2)! I spent some time in the kitchen with your recipe book tonight and I am SO PLEASED! I have felt really stressed and restless all day, so I knew spending time in the kitchen would help - I pulled out your recipe book and cooked up a few things! I had an especially good time making my own BBQ sauce and Cocktail sauce tonight! Up until now, I would never have considered making my own, but your recipes are GREAT! Thank you so much for sharing these with us! I am PROUD of what I made, thanks to you!!! I even made labels for the bottles I re-purposed for my sauces!

Take a look:


To everyone else - I HIGHLY suggest Susie's cookbook! Everything I've made has turned out really well and it honestly gives me a feeling that I can LIVE the Medi way forever! Why would I not?

It all depends on what you put in them. I can make them so they are like ciabata bread, but my favorite way is to fix them like they are like pancakes. Do a search and look at the many recipes you can prepare them.

Susie-
I'd love to know how to fix them so they are like ciabatta bread. I am really missing that particular type of bread. Can you point me in the direction of the oopsie recipe for that kind?
Thanks- Stacey

I will post a recipe in the lunch thread. Just know I am constantly changing things up in my recipes and trying new things. I suggest you do the same. Experimenting is really fun.

Thanks Susie! I'm just not a great cook. I can follow a recipe, but have never really had much luck "creating" one.
I did follow your recipe for the original oopsies and the xantham gum really helped me get the egg whites right. Can't wait to try again.

Crustless Pepperoni Pizza

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

Sauce.........5 calories / 1 carb / 0 fat / 0 protein
Cheese......160 calories / 1 carb / 12 fat / 14 protein
Pepperoni...35 calories / 0 carbs / 2 fat / 9 protein

Totals........200 calories / 3.75 carbs / 26.5 fat / 20.75 protein

In a small Teflon skillet melt ˝ cup mozzarella cheese until edges bottom is lightly browned (edges will be slightly brown). Spread 1 T of low sugar spaghetti sauce over the cheese. Add 9 turkey pepperoni slice over the sauce. Fold over like an omelette and serve.

You can add other veggie toppings once you are out of week 1.

This is still one of my favorite lunches!!!! I don't do the sauce, just turkey pepperoni and cheese. Love love this stuff.

Thanks Susie for all your great ideas!!!!

The first week at my clinic is 500 cals a day, then the second week you get to have 500 cals plus veggies on top of that. Each clinic is slightly different in their "rules" for week one, mine does not allow dairy or cheese week 1, others do.

A Few Questions...

Hi everyone! I've been looking through the recipe threads and finding lots that I am interested in making! Thank you all SO much for all of your hard work! I have a few questions...
- Are most of these recipes okay for week 2 and beyond? Or are some for further along in the plan? What would I look for to determine whether or not I'd be able to use them early on in the game?
-I'm sure lots of great recipes are in the monthly threads, do those mostly get moved over to the recipe threads? I don't want to miss some good ones buried in the past monthly threads. Is there a good way to search for recipes specifically in the monthly threads?

Thank you for your help!! I can't wait to cook some of these amazing recipes!

The intention is that all the recipes, with the exception of those posted in the maintenance recipe thread, to be for the acute phase. Most of them have the nutritional information included. Personally, I would check the ingredients against the allowable food list before I just blindly trusted. We have tried to indicate problems in recipes that are not compliant.

Most of the recipes are in the recipe threads. When someone posts to the monthly threads we ask them to repost along with nutrition information into the recipe threads.

Another recipe question...When counting calories/carbs for a recipe, would they be part of the protein calories/carbs or where? For week 2, my menu page says "500 calories protein, 160 calories carbs (40 grams), 100 calories healthy fat=760 total per day" So, where would, say, Oopsie Rolls fit into there? I really don't want to go as high as 40 carbs a day after having none, so I'm planning on keeping it under 25 or 30. Thanks for the help!! I can't *wait* to get cooking!

I don't know what to tell you because your clinic is different from mine. Because I was active I got 700 protein calories, which included all calories except for vegetables and fruits (called protein calories because the majority of those calories come from protein) and in addition 20-25g carbs. So for Oopsie rolls, since they do not contain any vegetables, all the calories come out of the protein calories, and all the carbs come out of the 20-25g carbs.

Thanks, Susie! I'll give them a call tomorrow. With 500 protein calories, it seems like it doesn't leave any wiggle room for anything that's not pure protein. But, I guess most of the recipes would be mostly protein. Thanks for your help!

The Oopsie Rolls are not pure protein, but since my clinic does not separate out the calories, all of them go there. They just refer to them as protein calories since the majority of them are from protein. If you need to separate out the calories as you are suggesting that your clinic wants you to do, you need to read the labels on each of the ingredients and put the calories in the appropriate catagories.

Jo posted the following a few weeks ago, which should help with your calculations:

"Calculating calories per gram of carbohydrates, fat or protein is easy. All you need to remember is that:


1 gram of carbohydrate = 4 calories
1 gram of protein = 4 calories
1 gram of fat = 9 calories
1 gram of alcohol = 7 calories
Knowing this, you can figure the number of calories in any food in which you know the grams of the above nutrients."

What I do is only count the protein calories and log in those calories. When I eat a vegetable or fruit along with a protein, I'll put the protein calories under calories and whatever the carb total is for the veggie or fruit I'll put under the carb section. I don't count those calories because if I'm doing it right the veggie and fruits each day will add up to about 80-100 calories. Then I just add up both columns at the end of the day. It has worked out well for me so far.

Thanks for your help, Susie and Jana! She really didn't focus on counting calories too much, telling me not to write down anything but protein calories (but nothing about calculating protein calories like Jo explained to me the other day...), so I think I am over thinking this and making things harder than they really are. I'm just having to re-train my mind after being in the Weight Watchers world and counting and calculating every aspect of what I ate!
