So roast how you like…This can also be grilled…

Cauliflower Rice without the Grain
- Bushel of cauliflower
- Olive oil
Chop cauliflower into small chunks and put into food processor.
Blend cauliflower until it has a “cous cous” consistency.
Heat oil in a pan over med/high heat and pan fry the cauliflower until golden brown.
- 14 g of dry oats
- 1/4 tbsp flax seeds
- 1 cup soy milk (or skim milk)
- 70 g soft tofu
- 1 oz very ripe avocado
- 1 VERY ripe banana (the more ripe the better!)
- 1 generous handful of spinach leaves
- *add water as necessary
Put all the ingredients in a blender or magic bullet and blend until smooth. This is a great option for your second meal of the day. Enjoy!
Homemade Frozen Yogurt
- plain low fat yogurt
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- your choice of fruit ie: blueberries, raspberries, mango..
Blend all ingredients together. Put in Tupperware or freezer safe bowl and freeze until set.
** You can also pour this into popsicle molds!
Pseudo Cinnamon Bun
- 1 slice of whole grain bread, toasted (1/2 whole grain English muffin works well too)
- 3/4 tsp light cream cheese
- cinnamon, to taste
- brown sugar Splenda, to taste
Spread the cream cheese over the piece of toast then sprinkle the cinnamon & brown sugar over top.
Once you sprinkle the cinnamon and brown sugar, spread it as well to mix it in so that it melts in with the cream cheese. You could however just mix it altogether then spread over.
Egg white Crustless Quiche
preheat oven to 350 degrees
- 75g mushrooms
- 70g raw spinach
- 1 tsp chopped or crushed garlic
- pam spray
- juice of 1 lemon
- 1 tbsp. water
- liquid egg whites
- seasoning of your choice (garlic salt is nice)
Grease 6 muffin tin tray with Pam spray.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a skillet sprayed with Pam, sauté the mushrooms garlic over medium heat until brownish (about 4 minutes), then add mushrooms and spinach.
Squeeze lemon juice over the veggies and add some water and seasoning as they cook down.
When the mushrooms and spinach are fully cooked, divide veggie mixture between the baking cups.
Measure out one cup of liquid egg whites and pour in each cup over veggies. So about 1/6th of a cup of eggwhite per muffin cup. Sprinkle some seasoning on top.
Bake in the oven at 350 for about 12-15 minutes or until they are no longer runny and the egg has set.
Use a sharp knife to swirl around the edges of the muffins so they can be inverted and release easily.
- 3/4 cup boiling water
- 1 package sugar free Jello
- 2 cups cold club soda (not tonic!)
- 1/2 cup sugar substitute
Mix the water, jello mix and sugar until all the ingredients are dissolved.
Add the club soda and then put the mix in a 9” square pan in the freezer for 1 1/2 hours.
Take the mix out of the freezer after you have ice crystals forming 1” around the edge of the pan. Spoon the half frozen mixture into a blender, mix, and then put it back in the pan in the freezer.
That’s it! When it comes out it’s hard as a rock so you need to let it sit on the counter for 15 minutes or so before serving.
It’s a bit less like true sorbet and a bit more like the stuff you put in a snow cone, but it’s nice for a change and for summer.
For variations, you can add in 1 - 1 1/2 cups of mashed fruit. For instance, use lemon flavored Jello and put in a cup of honeydew melon.
Another variation uses black cherry Jello with 1/2 tsp of lemon zest and 3 tablespoons of lemon juice.
*makes 1 cookie
(all measurements are approximate - I used a little less than 1/2 tsp of the liquid spray margarine).
- 1/2 scoop of Protein Powder
- 1/2 tsp liquid spray margarine (0 calories for 5 sprays…but there must be some calories in it if you add up the sprays…I use less than the 1/2 tsp)
- 1/2 - 1 tsp of splenda or stevia (depends on how sweet you like it - or a flavoured sugar-free syrup works too)
- splash of water
Mix all ingredients together until it forms a “ball” and then place the bowl/cup into the microwave for about 30 seconds (20-25 seconds if you want it more chewy). Then I use the same fork or spoon I mixed it with to pop the cookie out of the cup, then let it cool for a second. (At 25-30 seconds in the microwave, it expands to maybe the size of half of your palm). Done!
Makes a cookie-like treat. Yes, not quite the same, but still a nice sweet treat.
