Good BFFM/BFL/Atkins recipe

This sounds weird but it's really tasty. I based it on the Mexicali Beef & Cabbage Pie that I used to eat when I was doing Atkins. If you are doing Atkins, just eliminate the beans

Cabbage Chili

1 small head of cabbage
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
1 lb. extra lean ground beef
1 can diced tomatoes
1 small can diced green chilis
1 can black beans
3 tbs. chili powder (or more to taste)

Brown ground beef in a skillet with 1/2 of the chopped onion. Drain fat. Return browned meat to skillet and add remaining ingredients (except cabbage). Lower heat and simmer for 30 mins. Meanwhile, chop cabbage. Sautee chopped cabbage in a bit of olive oil with the remaining onion. Cook until wilted and transparent, but not soft. For each serving, place approximately 1 cup of cooked cabbage in a bowl and top with 1/2 to 1 cup of meat mixture. Makes approx. 5 servings. You could also top with low fat cheese if you eat dairy.

Fogot the protein powder in my muffins. They spread out touching each other, and cooled to a popover look alike with a soft middle, eadible, but I'll never do that again!

Baked Oatmeal

This is a yummy and different way to eat oatmeal. It tastes a bit like cake or quick bread and makes a convenient and portable breakfast.

Serves 4

2 cups rolled oats
1½ teaspoons baking powder
1 cup skim milk
2 eggs
½ cup unsweetened applesauce*
¼ teaspoon liquid stevia*
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Combine wet ingredients and add dry ingredients. Bake in sprayed 8" square pan at 175ºC/350ºF for 35-45 min. Test centre by inserting a knife and if it comes out clean, the Baked Oatmeal is done. Keeps well in fridge. Can be frozen.

* original recipe had ½ cup Splenda.

Shannycakes - can't wait to make em tomorrow morning!! I have a few questions...
Has anyone tried using Egg Beaters instead of real egg whites?
edit: if so, how much egg beaters did you use to equal 4 egg whites?

Also, according to my calculations, for one batch of regular shanycakes the numbers come out to:

4 egg whites - 120cal/24p/4c/0f
1/4c. cottage cheese (1%) - 45cal/7p/6c/1f
1/2c. oats - 150cal/5p/27c/3f
4 pks splenda - 0?
1 tsp cinnamon - 6cal?
1 tsp vanilla extract - 12cal/0p/1c/0f

which would be 333cal/36p/38c/4f or roughly 43%p/46%c/11f

does that look right?


I'm just starting to get the hang of BFFM..... or at least that's what I'm trying to do

I use liquid egg whites. I also use the apple recipe with natural applesauce.I make muffins instead of pancakes.

I am close to being addicted the muffins but I also like plain oatmeal(1 cup cooked) with 1/2 c 1% cottage cheese(packet splenda and cinnamon) so I have been doing that most mornings instead.

I've made a few different variations of the muffins since my last post. I find that real egg whites seem to work better for some reason. If/when I use egg beaters, I use about 50%-75% of what the recipe calls for.

How about you, dshulman???

and.... my absolute favorite way to eat my oats is:

2/3 cup oats dry (regular rolled oats) with a 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, a packet of splenda and 2 tbsp of applesauce... I have this with a whey shake pretty much every day for my 2nd meal.
I really struggled to get the cooked oats down. The texture just didn't do it for me..... whoever suggested this mixture, Thank You!!!

I use 3/4 c liquid egg whites per recipe. I think it comes to more egg then what you get when you use real eggs but I can't seperate eggs well and end up making a mess. My muffins come out great though. Some people don't use cottage cheese. I use 1/4 c.1% cottage cheese and 1/4c. natural applesauce and 1/3 c. oats and 3/4 c. liquid egg whites and a teaspoon baking powder, cinnamon, vanilla davinci's syrup and nutmeg.I spray muffin liners with Pam and bake 25 minutes and never eat until cooled.

I make my oats in microwave and they come out great. I use 1/2 c or 3/4 c uncooked oats. for 1/2 c it is 1 cup water and microwave for 2 minutes and 45 seconds. I make in a 7 cup food storage bowl. I mix in 1/2 c 1% cottage cheese cinnamon and splenda and sometimes I chop apple and cook with oatmeal and mix in cottage cheese. I love this every morning more then the muffins.

I LOVE these. I, however, use 5 egg whites and 3/4 c oats and totally omit the baking powder, protein powder, salt and splenda. i just add extra davinci's. Sometimes i add apple slices, pumpkin, banana, blueberries or rasberries..tastes great!

I'm posting the recipes that Debbie provided in the weekly BFFM thread so that they don't get lost again!

Protein Bar Recipes:

Meal Replacement Bars (Cutting)

Combine in Large Mixing Bowl

8 Scoops Whey (Vanilla is very good)
3 Cups Oats
1 Package Sugar Free Fat Free Pudding (Any flavor is good)
2 Cups Skim Milk

Mix until a sticky batter is formed (may take a few minutes)

use a large spoon to spread out the mix into the bottom of a Pam-sprayed glass or metal cooking tray (spread until even)
put in the fridge overnight and cut into 8 equal bars that yield:
3g fat
28g carbs
29g protein
257 calories
These bars taste amazing, and are perfect for: breakfast, pre OR postworkout


STRAWBERRY & BANANA MEAL REPLACEMENT BARS
Makes 6 bars
1 cup raw oatmeal
5 scoops of strawberry protein powder ( 90g of protein)
1/4 cup fat free cream cheese
1/2 cup non fat dry milk powder
2 egg whites
1/4 cup water
1 1/2 bananas, mashed
2 tsp. canola oil (this is the secret to moist bars instead of the traditional dry bar)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Spray a 9x9 square pan with cooking spray & set aside. In a med.ium bowl combine oatmeal, Protein powder & dry milk. Set aside. In another bowl beat together with an electric hand mixer, cream cheese, egg whites, bananas, water & oil. Add the oat mixture & continue to beat until the two are combined. Pour batter into the prepared pan & bake for 30-35 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

ABC Protein Bars

10 tbsp. natural peanut butter
5 egg whites
5 scoops whey protein (I find that chocolate mint tastes the best in this recipe, however chocolate tastes good as well)
2 cups oats (OPTIONAL: For flavor, I dry cook these on a frying pan until they are toasted)
1/2 cup soy milk

DIRECTIONS

Mix the peanut butter and egg whites in a bowl. Microwave on high for 30 seconds, and mix well (so that the mixture appears smooth). Repeat 4-5 times until all traces of egg whites have dissolved into the peanut butter, and your mixture is a smooth consistent one.

Gradually add the protein (one scoop at a time) and stir into the mixture. Next, add the soy milk and follow with the oats. Continue mixing until a thick 'sticky' mixture is present.

Smooth the thick mixture into a 13x9 tray and leave for 20-30 minutes. Cut into 10 equal size bars. Individually wrap each bar (I use aluminum foil) and store in the fridge.

1/2 cup water (depending on what type of protein you use, you may need to add more)
Modifications: Use vanilla protein and replace ~1/4 cup of the oatflour with a variety of nuts, seeds, or dried berries.
PREPARATION:

Spray an 8x8 baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Combine dry ingredients in a medium size bowl and mix well. Add peanut butter and mix - the mixture will be crumbly and dry. Add water & vanilla. Sponsored Links

Using a wooden spoon or rubber spatula, everything until a dough forms. The dough will be sticky. Spread dough into pan using a clean wooden spoon or spatula that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Refrigerate a few hours (or freeze for an hour) and cut into 9 squares.

Spray an 8x8 inch cake pan with Pam and press in dough evenly.
Refrigerate a few hours to harden, then cut into 8 - 12 bars, depending on requirements.
Wrap bars in plastic wrap & store in fridge.

Double Chocolate Peanut Butter Designer Protein Bars - 4 servings

1/4 cup reduced fat peanut butter*

Apple Crisp (Low-Fat)
Serves: About 10

8 large Granny Smith apples, peeled and sliced
1/4 cup Splenda
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tbsp. lemon juice


Topping:1 cup rolled oats
1 cup whole wheat flour
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup Splenda
1/2 tsp. cinnamon (I like cinnamon)
2 tbsp. butter
1 egg white

Mix apples with Splenda and cinnamon and put into a large baking dish (approximately 9"x12"). Sprinkle with lemon juice. Bake at 4000F for 15 minutes.

Mix oats, flour, Splenda, and cinnamon. Add butter and egg white, mixing with your fingers or a fork until it is crumbly. Spread over the apples and bake an additional 20 to 25 minutes until the apples are tender and the topping browned.



Mock Apple Crisp
Ingredients:
Approx 16 oz diced zucchini *
3 cups sugar-free apple cider mix
(This means 1 pkt of the dry mix made with water to be 3 cups liquid.)
1 Tablespoon Splenda®
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
1/3 cup pecan meal (or coarse almond meal)
3/4 cup Splenda®
2 teaspoons Brown Sugar Twin® *
1 Tablespoon melted butter
2 teaspoons sugarfree vanilla extract
cinnamon to taste

Combine zucchini and liquid (pre-made) cider mix in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until zucchini is translucent (about 1 hour) - at this point the zucchini will have taken on the taste of apples. (Zuchinni have little of their own flavor and are willing to mimic other tastes with a bit of prodding. They will look and smell like them too!)

Preheat oven to 350°F.
Remove from heat and place in well buttered baking dish. Mix 1 Tablespoon Splenda and xanthan gum and quickly and evenly stir into zucchini. In separate bowl, mix pecan meal and 3/4 cup Splenda. Add Brown Sugar Twin. Stir into melted butter and add extract. Spread over top of zucchini and sprinkle cinnamon as desired. Bake 15-20 min. or until top is brown and mixture is bubbly!

Chicken and Rice Chowder

4 1/2 cups chicken broth, canned or homemade (I use water and bouillon)
1/2 cups water
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cooked and chopped (turkey would work well too I imagine)
2 tsp thyme
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup brown rice (uncooked) (I'm going to try using leftover cooked rice next time to cut down on cooking time. Probably a cup or two. Depending on your carb allowance).
1 T olive oil
4 cloves of garlic, pressed
1 onion, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
1 stalk celery
3 T flour
1 1/2 cups 1% low-fat milk (I used 2% cause that's what we had and I'm okay with a little higher fat %)

In a large saucepan, bring chicken broth and water to a boil and add the chicken. Add thyme and season with salt and pepper; add rice and reduce heat.

In a skillet, heat olive oil over med. high heat. Add garlic, onion, carrots, and celery; cook until onions are translucent. Add flour to the mix and combine well. Add this mixture to the broth mixture in the saucepan.

Stir milk into everything and continue to simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened. (here the recipe says about 20-30 min. But I found it took at least an hour to get the rice soft, which is why I'm trying cooked rice next time, just make sure you have enough time before dinner since brown rice does take awhile to steam. )

per serving: (serves 6, so about 1.5 cups/serving I think)

298 calories; 6 g fat; 35 g protein; 24 g carbohydrate; 2 g dietary fiber

It's really tasty. And of course, lots of variations could be made. Add some spinach towards the end for more veggies and fiber. Sub brown rice for barley. Etc.
