Thanks Mary, I spread them out throughout the day today. Had 1 with bkfst and 1/2 Pure Protein bar, had 2 for midafternoon snack with Chai tea and another 2 for evening snack. The ingredients could get costly...but they are a treat, and I think knowing that the coconut flour and protein powder is costly makes me want to not eat all of them at once and go to the work of making them again. It's a treat!

MEDI friendly Grape Salad

This is ideal for a potluck or family gathering. The carb count it somewhat high @ 21 per serving; however, it could be reduced by eliminating the Splenda Brown Sugar blend and just using regular Splenda, or eliminating the "Sugar topping" and making a nut topping only with equal parts almonds, pecans, walnuts.

1lb Green Grapes Seedless
1lb Red Grapes Seedless
8 oz. Fat Free Sour Cream
8oz. Fat Free Cream Cheese, softened
1/4 cup Splenda
1 tsp Vanilla extract

Topping Ingredients:
1/2 cup Brown Sugar Splenda Blend
1 cup crushed Pecans

Directions:

1 Wash and stem grapes.
2 Set aside.
3 Mix sour cream, cream cheese, white sugar and vanilla by hand until blended.
4 Stir grapes into mixture, and pour in large serving bowl.
5 For topping: Combine brown sugar, and crushed pecans.
6 Sprinkle over top of grapes to cover completely.
7 Chill overnight.

Serves 15
Per Serving: 153 cals, 21 carbs, 6g fat, 4g protein

I think this is a great recipe it's certainly more ideal for maintenance; however, with a few tweaks I'm positive it can be made appropriate for Acute phase.

This grape salad recipe sounds yummy! I bet you could nearly freeze it too to make it like a near-sherbert/ice cream sort of texture. I've frozen grapes previously to eat them slower. So I would think you could put this grape salad recipe in styrofoam cup portions in the freezer, or in a resealable dish!

Ok this sounds terrible but it is actually pretty good if you like cinnamom toast. I took pork rinds and sprayed lightly with spray butter and sprinkled with a splenda/cinnamon mix. I don't know what the actual calories is because it really depends on how much you spray the rinds (I only do it so the mixture sticks to the rinds) but it can't be much when you see how much of the splenda/cinnamon mix ends up on the bottom of the bowl.
Just don't lick the bowl (LOL)

Orange Pound Cake

From SheKnows Food&Recipes
Makes 12 servings with 6 net carbs each. If you are baking for a large group, this recipe is a great choice.

Ingredients:

•3/4 cup butter softened
•1/4 cup low-fat cream cheese, softened
•1 1/2 cups Splenda
•5 eggs
•2 cups almond flour
•1 teaspoon baking powder
•1/2 teaspoon salt
•1/4 cup orange juice
Directions:

1.Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
2.Beat butter, cream cheese and Splenda with electric mixer until creamy.
3.Add eggs one at a time, mixing thoroughly after each.
4.In a separate bowl, combine almond flour, baking powder and salt.
5.Pour flour mixture into butter mixture slowly, while continuing to beat until well blended.
6.Add orange juice and continue mixing.
7.Pour mixture into a greased loaf pan.
8.Bake for 60-70 minutes until a toothpick is inserted in the center and comes out clean.


Nutrition Information Calculated by *** per serving: Cals 259, Carbs 11, Fat 23, Protein 7, Fiber 2

Anyone have any ideas for making this lower calorie? I don't know how a butter substitute would hold up. I guess we will have to bake it and experiment.

For a sweet treat I like to sweeten my Greek yogurt with ˝ to 1 packet of trivia (depending on the serving size) and use a crystal light drink mix product to add flavor. I like to use the lemon… but only part of it because it gets really strong!

Peanut Butter Balls?

Although i find taking all 3 AS daily keeps my mind off cheating or snacking I now have a nice treat to budget for and look forward to at the end of a day...not everyday though. Perhaps the days I fish which are low in calories.
I know this is an older post, but does anyone have the recipe for the peanut butter balls? Thanks!

I'm in the beginning stages of Medi and thought I would post my fav dessert recipe to-date:

1/2 cup frozen fat free cool whip
Drizzle of Waldens chocolate or caramel sauce.
Add fruit if desired

The whip frozen tastes just like ice cream *yummmy.
Sometimes I add just fruit but that little bit of chocolate is my weightloss week treat.

Low Carb Sugar Free Chocolate Truffles

I found the recipe on Low Carb Diets and made this today. They are decadent and AMAZING!

If you're a chocolate lover like me, this recipe will hit the spot. One truffle is very rich and will totally relieve that chocolate craving!

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
Ingredients:

8 oz unsweetened chocolate
1 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoons vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups erythritol
1 cup Splenda granulated

Preparation:

Heat the cream, vanilla, sweetener and salt until bubbles form. Remove from heat. Add chocolate pieces and let melt, stirring occasionally. Add erythritol.

At this point, you can let it cool to room temperature at which point it can be rolled into 3/4" balls as the base of truffles and then roll in cocoa powder.

I was able to get 50 truffles out of the recipe. Nutrition info below reflects that count:

Nutrition Info: 38.4 cals/>1 carb/3.9g fat >1g protein PER TRUFFLE.

**I had to put the truffles into the fridge to cool b/c an ingredient was starting to separate on me (maybe the oil in the chocolate?) It's also 105* today so room temp might have been too warm even with the a/c on.

Start Date: 1/10/12 Medi, 2/9/12 First UD, 1/1/13 New Plan
Almond Macaroons
(From Weight Watchers/slightly modified)
Ingredients
1 cup(s) slivered almonds (I bet you could use almond meal/flour)
2/3 cup(s) sugar substitute (Need a powdered - I don't think you can use liquid)
1/8 tsp table salt
1 large egg white(s)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp almond extract
3 Tbsp almonds, sliced variety, coarsely chopped

Instructions
Place an oven rack in the upper third of the oven and preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.


Put the slivered almonds, sugar substitute, and salt in a food processor; process until the almonds are very finely ground, about 1 minute. Add the egg white, vanilla, and almond extract; pulse 10 times, or until the dough comes together; scrape into a small bowl.


Drop the dough by scant tablespoonfuls onto the baking sheet about 2 1⁄2 inches apart, making a total of 16 cookies. Lightly brush the cookies with water and flatten them slightly; sprinkle evenly with the sliced almonds. Bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes. Slide the parchment paper onto a rack and let cool completely. Peel the macaroons off the parchment paper. Yields 1 macaroon per serving.
Notes
If you like, dip half of each macaroon in melted semisweet or bittersweet chocolate, then place on a piece of wax paper until set.

When storing the chocolate-coated cookies, be sure to separate the layers with sheets of wax paper.

Chocolate Dipped Macaroons

(From Weight Watchers/slightly modified)

Ingredients
3 large egg white(s)
2/3 cup(s) sugar substitute (not liquid)
1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/2 cup(s) dried shredded and coconut meat, unsweetened
3 oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped into small bits (you could melt and add some coconut oil)

Instructions
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line one or two large cookie sheets with parchment paper.


In a large bowl, whisk egg whites with sugar (whisk egg whites to soft peaks before adding sugar substitute). Add vanilla and coconut; stir to combine.


Scoop up a level tablespoon of batter and form into a ball with your hands; repeat with remaining batter. Place each ball about 1-inch apart on prepared cookie sheets.


Bake until tops just start to turn light tan, about 15 to 18 minutes. Remove cookies to a cooling rack for about 30 minutes.


Place chocolate in a double boiler or heavy pot; melt over low heat, stirring occasionally (do not allow to burn) (Can also just do this in the microwave). Keep chocolate warm and pliable as you dip tops of cookies into chocolate. Place dipped cookies on a metal tray evenly spread apart so they’re not touching; freeze until chocolate sets, about 20 to 30 minutes. Yields 1 cookie per serving. Serves 32, 2 PP per.

Here is the Dessert Recipe thread. I will ask that it, too, be "restuck" to the top of the forum.

I've been having the carb control vanilla yogurt with two tablespoons of PB2. Simple but delicious! 90 calories, 3g fat, 8g carbs, 10g protein. But ready to try something new. These all look good!
