hey y'all - please feel free to post stuff you make here too!!

But my food isn't quite as photogenic as yours!!!

 

I *have* been enjoying a "1 minute" muffin recipe lately

 

2 Tbsp of ground flax

2 Tbsp grated cheese

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 egg

 

Butter a microwaveable ramekin (or even a coffee mug)

Mix everything up in the container

Microwave for 90 seconds

Remove from container, eat

 

If you get the right sized ramekin, they're thick enough that you can cut them in half like a biscuit.

 

I've been using grated mozzerella, as it's mild and it ends up more like a whole grain/seed bread than a cheese-bread

Or you can use cheddar and add spices, and make it more of a "cheesy biscuit"

 

(I keep meaning to add some chia seeds -- haven't done it yet, but it seems like a natural fit)

alright i just figured up the 'stats' of the LC pancakes i've been making and glad i did as i had NO idea there were so many calories in them!!

 

made as per the recipe (i think it is on the bottom of page 5 of this thread) but adding 2 tsps metamucil clear and natural (inulin fiber) and about .75% of 1 TBsp ground flax and using 1/4 cup maple grove farms sf syrup is approx.....

 

380 calories

1.5 NET carbs - meaning not counting the sugar alcohols or fiber (if counting ALL carbs there are 29)

29 grams protein

about 13 - 15 grams fiber

 

i cook mine in a lil bit of louann's coconut oil - this does NOT take into account the calories from the oil - so yeah, high brekkie!!

 

BUT this keeps me for a few hours

 

and i'm NOT using butter cause the calories are already high enough as is

all done and in the crock pot to keep warm til the hubs gets home

 

i used heavy whipping cream instead of regular milk and i used guar gum as a thickener

 

 

 

 

 

it's super thick, like a chowder - yeah, i know it's not pretty to look at but it tastes yummy

snacking on thin smoked deli ham, one string cheese and baby carrots dipped in roasted red pepper hummus

 

gonna make some ranch dip later using plain greek yogurt and some seasonings - saw a recipe somewhere for what seasonings to use instead of buying the packets from the store

 

that will taste better on my carrots than this hummus i'm sure - i bet pork rinds would taste good dipped in either

 

*dives into pantry for pork rinds to try*

 

:D

I was having a big green onion dip Jones at Super Bowl time. I decided I was going to make chips out of Brussels sprouts leaves and buy that powdered green onion dip mix. Must be low carb, right? I was reading the ingredients. I've no clue of the powdery packet was carby or not because I couldn't get past the list of unpronounceable ingredients. I looked at it and said to self, holy cr@p! I can't eat that! So I got the sour cream, some green onions and went home and with that and a little mayo, some garlic, black pepper, bit of lemon juice and a tiny bit of stevia, I made my own green onion dip. It was freakin' delish! I'm now loving making my own dips and dressings.

We didn't win, so no treats for me!!!!! :T

well, i made the ranch dip using a mix of the plain yogurt and sour cream - did NOT like it - will look for other recipes for the seasoning portion of it - yuck! too much dill & garlic and lacking in salt and i don't know what else

 

then i made ketchup so i could make cocktail sauce so i could make shrimp dip - LOL - that was a hit - we used pork rinds to dip into it

:)

 

ketchup - omitted the apple juice concentrate and used splenda instead:

Quick and Easy Ketchup Recipe - Allrecipes.com

 

cocktail sauce:

Craig's Cocktail Sauce Recipe - Allrecipes.com

 

can't find which recipe i copied down from, but here's what's scribbled in my book for the shrimp dip:

 

cooked shrimp, chopped

8 oz softened cream cheese

8 oz sour cream

1/2 cup celery

1/2 cup onion

1/2 cup bell pepper

chile sauce or cocktail sauce - just add a little at a time til it is how you like it

 

the veggies in it were not in original recipe but were in the 'review' section as to what ppl added and said was good
