Today I want to share with you a few recipes that Jennifer used to help her stay committed yet enjoy the experience.
From: Jennifer O.
Hey there everyone. Several members of my family as well as several friends are beginning this diet so I thought, since I just finished it and have been doing it for 3 months now (round 1 for 1 month, a month on phase 3 and then round 2 for a month) I thought I’d share some things I learned and some things that made it easier for me. I lost 40 lbs on this between the 2 rounds. I KNOW it works!
Ok, now for recipes! These are some that I created that I really loved the best.
Ground beef burger:
Place your allowed amount of burger in a bowl. Cut 1 slice from a purple onion and chop it up really fine and add to meat. Add 1 or 2 shakes of Worcestershire Sauce. Mix it up with your fingers and make into a patty. Grill on George Forman and eat with a slice of tomato on top and between 2 or 3 big leaves of lettuce. I’d slice up the rest of the tomato to finish out my 2 veggies and put some seasoning on it. Yum!!!
White fish bake:
Make a foil bowl or tent. Place a generous handful of fresh spinach on the bottom. Place a fillet of white fish on that. (I always used Tilapia). Cut up a tomato or zucchini or red pepper and place the pieces around the fish. Sprinkle the whole thing with lemon juice. Season the whole thing with garlic powder, dill, and lemon pepper. Seal up the foil and bake at 350 deg. for 20 minutes. Yum!!!!
Cut up chicken in little bites and start cooking in a fry pan. Add a little lemon juice so it doesn’t burn. Season to taste with cumin. (I like a lot). Add a cut up tomato or a cup of cherry tomatoes cut in half. When everything is just about cooked, add a big handful of fresh spinach and then cover pan to allow spinach to wilt. Again, Yum!!!!!
Non lettuce salad:
Cut up 1 cucumber into small bites. Cut up 1 tomato into small bites. Season veggies with whatever you are going to season your chicken with. Cook seasoned chicken on grill and then cut it up into small bites and add to plate. Add some balsamic vinegar as a dressing and enjoy! I really liked this one as a variety to a “normal” salad. Once again, Yum!!!!
DESSERTS! Yes, you can have dessert.
Cut up 1 apple into really little bites. Place in a microwave safe bowl and sprinkle with 1 packet of powder Stevia. Sprinkle with cinnamon and even a little dash of nutmeg and cloves if you’d like. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 2 minutes. “Almost” tastes like apple pie. 🙂 Add one of the grissini breadsticks to it crushed up and there is “almost” a crust to it. 😛
Place 7-10 strawberries into the blender. Place about that much ice in to. Use stevia drops that have been flavored with either vanilla or chocolate to taste. Blend up and it is “almost” like having strawberry ice-cream. (You have to play with how many drops a bit. Start with 12 and once it’s blended, add a couple more at a time if you want)
I hope this has helped. most of my meals were just a piece of meat cooked on the George Forman and either fresh veggies cut up or a lot of the time broccoli and cauliflower in the steamer. Quick and easy but do try to mix it up a bit. I always ate my fruits at times other than my meals. That helped with my blood sugar throughout the day.
