Barbara's Core Corn Muffins
Servings : 9
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 1/2 cups cornmeal, whole-grain
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 cup skim milk
1/4 cup butter buds® or molly mcbutter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup egg beaters or 2 beaten eggs
2 tablespoons(20 pkts) Splenda -- optional for a sweet muffin, increase as you like for desired sweetness

Mix cornmeal, baking powder, salt, and Splenda together in medium bowl.
Add the wet ingredients and stir just until mixture comes together. Spray
a non stick muffin pan with non stick cooking spray and fill nine of the
muffin cups with batter. Cook in a 350° for 15 to 20 minutes, til just
browning around the edges.

Dirty Rice
(Base Recipe)

1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
4 Cloves Garlic, sliced
1 Onion, diced
1 Pkg 97% lean ground beef
4 Cloves of garlic, chopped
4 Ears Bi-color corn, sliced from cob
1 Jalapeño, seecded & diced


Salt- to taste
Pepper – to taste
Onion Powder- to taste (lots)
Garlic Powder – to taste (lots)

3 Cups cooked brown rice


Heat oil in a large sauté pan. Add onion, garlic and peppers and cook for 1-2 minutes. Add ground beef and seasonings, and cook until no longer pink. Add corn and cook another couple of minutes.
Cook rice according to directions. Drain and add to beef. Add more seasonings to taste.

Serve topped with FF sour cream


This makes lots but freezes well for fast dinners or lunches.

Shrimp and Snow Peas

2 cups frozen shrimp (i prefer tails on but it's your call)
3 cups snow/snap peas (washed and ready to eat)
2 tsp crushed garlic
2 tsp olive oil (or any other healthy oil)
1/4 cup black bean sauce
2 tbsp soy sauce

Combine garlic, olive oil, and shrimp in pan and sauté (medium-high heat) until shrimp are no longer frozen. Add peas (in shell) and sauces. Sauté for 3-5 minutes and cover for the final minute.

Eat with brown rice or on its own if you've already had your rice/potatoes/pasta serving for the day. I just love this one. I have it once a week. It reminds me of the snow pea and shrimp dumplings I ordered at Dim Sum but it is core. Yum yum!

Smoothies

I make these when I'm craving ice cream or if I realize I need a dairy serving and possibly fruit/veg.

1 cup fat free plane yogurt
1 cup frozen berries (I also like frozen peaches and mango)
1 ripe banana
2 tsp Splenda (or sugar free Torani syrup in any appealing flavour – I like strawberry)
milk to thin (if needed)

Blend and enjoy. I like mine really thick so I have to eat it with a spoon.

General Tsao's Chicken
makes 4 servings, 6 points each

Ingredients:

3/4 cup canned chicken broth, reduced-sodium
2 Tbsp cornstarch
2 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
1 Tbsp white wine vinegar
1/2 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp peanut oil (I use canola)
2 medium scallion(s), chopped
2 medium garlic clove(s), minced
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes, or 1 dried chili pepper, minced
1 pound uncooked boneless, skinless chicken breast(s), cut into 2-inch pieces
2 cup cooked white rice, kept hot (I use bulgar)

Directions:

In a medium bowl, whisk together broth, cornstarch, sugar, soy sauce, vinegar and ginger; set aside.

Heat oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. Add scallions, garlic and pepper and cook 2 minutes. Add chicken and cook until browned all over, about 5 minutes.

Add reserved sauce and simmer until sauce thickens and chicken is cooked through, about 3 minutes.

Serve chicken and sauce over rice. Yields about 1 cup of chicken and sauce and 1/2 cup of rice per serving.

WOE: low carb - 1400 calories
428270sh42acnblr.gif


Good morning everyone! May I join you for a 7 day experiment? I have been doing JUDDD with good success. However, I would like to see if 1400 calories a day will work for me. If it does, I'll compare the two plans after 7 days and see which one I prefer. Do we post what we eat here everyday, or just the calories?

I'm going to concentrate on 1400 calories, and eat healthy (from my perspective). This will not be low fat or low carb - just moderation. I may need to give this more than a week to see if I lose. I've lost 14 pounds since starting JUDDD, so I will stop and go back to JUDDD if I start to gain. My JUDDD plan was 500 calories one day and 2000 the next. So, I would like to see if 1400 daily will help me achieve the same weight loss. Right now I'll just post calories. What is your plan? How much have you lost?
