5 strips of bacon
shredded cheese of your choice
Egg Beaters (you can use egg whites or regular eggs too)
salt and pepper to taste
Microwave (or however you make bacon) until crisp. Once cooled, crumble into small piece. Spray a cupcake pan with Pam, then add some of the bacon and shredded cheese to each muffin. If you are using egg beaters, just pour in 2/3 of the way full, add salt and pepper to each. If using eggs, whisk the eggs and salt pepper together, add to each muffin as above.
Bake 375 for about 25 minutes or set. Cool on a cooling rack, then transfer to a ziplock bag to store in fridge.
Serving Size is 2 muffins for breakfast. If it's more convenient, put two in a sandwich baggie so you can grab and go. ENJOY!!!!!
1lb ground turkey (or beef)
1 onion chopped
freshly chopped garlic
Jar of Light Spaghetti Sauce
Shredded cheddar cheese
Oregano (or italian seasonings)
3lb spaghetti squash
Start by cutting the squash in half lengthwise, scoop out all the seeds and place open side down in a microwavable safe bowl with about an inch of water in it. Cover and cook for around 10 minutes. You shiuld be able to pierce the skin with a fork easily. Set aside and let cool. Take a fork and shred the squash making it look like spaghetti. Place in a colondar and drain while preparing rest.
Put a tbsp of olive oil in a pan and saute onions and garlic for a few minutes, then add meat and cook through. Add jar of sauce and let stand to thicken. Add in the squash and mix together. Spoon into an 8x8 baking dish, top with parm cheese first, then shredded cheese.
Bake 15-20 minutes or until heated through and bubbly.
Not sure of the carb count because of the various spaghetti sauces but it's not high.
cottage cheese with sugar free jelly
cut up block cheese with pepperoni (my go to snack right now)
celery and peanut butter
ranch dip with celery (you can try carrots too)
apple slices with peanut butter (some will be able to tolerate the fruit, others won't)
Atkins bars are fine
nuts (like almonds and walnuts...I buy the indiviudal packs to keep on me)
This is honestly the one thing that has gotten me through lunches this week. I first made salsa chicken, which was just adding frozen chicken breasts (4) into the crockpot and pour salsa on top. Cook on low for about 6 hours (may need more time depending on the thickness of chicken) and then I shredded it. For dinner that night I used the chicken in low carb tortilla wraps with sour cream, cheese, lettuce and taco sauce. YUMMY!! Since it's just the two of us, I had lots of leftover and threw some on salads for DH and I for the next two days.
Then I made Italian chicken the same way as above but used bottled italian dressing (check for the lowest carb one you can find) and ate it that night with broccoli and cheese and a side of Dreamfields rotini noodles buttered. Use the leftover chicken for salads.
You can do this with pork or beef too, although I don't eat much pork and no beef so I won't be posting recipes with them in it
I also cut up all my salad stuff and put in separate ziplock baggies to make assembling the salads easier each day.
Collie flower puree: you boil/ steam the collie flower then mash it or blend it like you do for mashed potatoes it has almost no carbs!
Also with collie flower place the collie flower in the oven sprinkled with a tiny bit of olive oil and bake until golden and outside is crispy the consistency is like that of french fries and it is sooo tasty!!
I was going to post a recipe for a cauliflower pizza crust after I tried it tonight!!!
ok, this gave me serious heartburn but it was still yummy
Cauliflower Crust Pizza:
Preheat oven to 450. Cut up a head of cauliflower into florets and put in a food processor to "rice" it. Mix together one cup of cauliflower, one cup of mozzarella cheese and 1 egg. Grease a cookie sheet and spread out mixture to make a crust. Bake 12-15 minutes. Take out and top with favorite pizza toppings and broil on high for about 3-5 minutes or cheese is bubbly. Be sure to use precooked toppings!
I found some interesting info on green tea to help keep glucose levels normal. I started drinking green tea today instead of coffee, and my numbers were a lot better. The one thing I found is that I have to drink it before eating my meals for it to do the most good. I also don't put anything in it. I just use Lipton green tea bags to make a pitcher of tea, and that way I can just pour a glass to drink while I am making my meals. Let me know if you try it and if it works for you.
Interesting about the green tea after payday when I go grocery shopping I might just have to pick some up! green tea is good and mild without any sweetener in it so that would be cool especially for breakfast when my numbers are usually the highest.
