Some of my L & G staples:.
Ground turkey taco salad (use left over ground turkey for Medifast chili).
Zucchini Lasagne (zucchini, mozarella, pasta sauce, cottage cheese).
Steak & salad.
Buffalo chicken w/celery & bleu cheese dressing (Wing Sauce ZERO carbs!).
Eggplant provolone (eggplant, provolone, balsamic vinegar, chopped tomatoes).
Just a few ideas...start perusing low carb cookbooks for ideas...or search online! Gotta keep that L & G interesting!~..
Thanks, that all sounds really good. I'll start looking for some more recipes...
Try this for variety. It's yummy!.
A couple of handfulls of frozen whole green beans. Put in micro for about 3 minutes (covered) until soft. Then line a 13x9 pan with foil (so keep from having to wash it - I'm so lazy). Dump in the green beans, an 8 oz package of fresh mushrooms, and 7 oz cooked shrimp (I buy them frozen in 3 pound bags). Toss with a couple teaspoons of olive oil and sprinkle with Montreal Steak Seasoning (it's in the spice aisle).
Bake at 375 for about 30-45 minutes, shaking periodically..
Oh yeah...forgot about Katy's recipe...I make that every week too. I use Cavender's though since I don't have Montreal's. It is sooo good and EASY...no clean-up, just throw the aluminum foil away!~..
That shrimp, bean and mushroom recipe sounds good, and like a lot of food. I am going to try that soon. I've grilled most steak, fish, chicken on the George Foreman grill, but I need to find some new recipes too. I have made that zucchini lasagne and it was very good. I think I used canned tomatoes, blended, with some Ital. spices.
Someone posted tuna patties, which are also good for a change. I've grilled frozen asparagus and green beans on the George Foreman too. I spray with a little pam first and season them as I want...
A great soup.
Better then bullion brand , chicken flavored, mixed into a cup of boiling water ( counts as a snack).
6 oz left over chicken breast, shredded.
1/2 cup cabbage.
1/2 c white mushroom.
C sliced zucchini.
C diced tomatoes.
Wedge of lemon (optional condiment).
Pepper (optional condiment).
Boil till veggies are soft and chicken is heated through. Use your favorite veggies and any combination to get your three servings. The above are my favorite veggies! If I add tomatoes I wait until everything else is almost cooked and add them at the last minute. Pour into bowl and, sprinkle with pepper and squeeze in a little lemon juice..
I also love making an egg drop soup&.
1 cup prepared better then boullion chicken broth (snack).
1 cup mushrooms.
Cup very fine diced cabbage.
1 egg whisked.
White pepper (optional condiment).
After the veggies are cooked; remove the pan from the heat and slowly stir in a circular motion as you pour in one whisked egg. The heat of the soup will cook the egg. Remember to count the egg in your lean portion and know the Medifast recommend three eggs can be counted for a lean but you must limit it to once a week. I just boil the other two eggs and eat them. Or I use fewer vegetables in the soup and make a little salad and add the two boiled eggs with them. Medifast does not recommend mixing your leans as it is difficult to measure. If youre eating one egg how many ounces of beef can you have? I just want it to be simple so I eat the three eggs ( one in the soup and the others on the side) if ya try to add all the eggs to the small soup portion it gets to be a mess...
Try Tyson Seasoned Beef Strips for your lean. You can find them in the deli section of your grocery store in a box or bag. Yummy. Also how about trying boca burgers or recipe crumbles for a change of pace?..
