This is an awesome low-carb version of loaded baked potatoes, and tastes far better than any version of mock potatoes that I have tried. In fact, this dish is soooo good, you will not believe it! I do not remember where I got this recipe, but it is a fabulous side to any low-carb meal. You will be pleased, I promise! Yum! Yum!
This is a lemonade-based fast prescribed for detoxification and weight loss. I found it when I was looking to detox my body. It was presented to me by a highly regarded holistic nurse, Sandra Duggan, who is one of the co-founders of the Cayce-Reilly School of Massotherapy at the ARE. According to the book she gave me, this is a healthy way to fast because between the lemons and the maple syrup you get all the micronutrients you need to sustain the body. Grade B syrup has higher contents of those macronutrients so use it if you can find it. Also, organic lemons are best. You can leave out the cayenne if you are spice-averse; its role is to help break up toxic deposits within the body. The citrus can do that as well; the cayenne just helps it go faster. It would be well to get a colonic during the time of your fast in order to aid along the detox/weight loss process. I used the fast for 2 days and lost 10 lbs that week (though weight loss was not my goal). Use this fast with spiritual goals in mind and you can achieve great results.
These are delicious, and very low in fat! I've served these with all sorts of dips, salsas, or hummus, and they always disappear-even before all the store bought chips or crackers. Feel free to experiment with the different spices shaken over the tops. Cumin is great for Mexican dips, but the Garlic Powder works really well too. Cayene pepper might be nice too if you like things a bit more spicy!
Quick low-carb snack. I find that these work better than some similar recipes that use shredded cheese. The spices on these really 'pop' too - Yum!!!! I've also used Colby-Jack cheese, and it works great.
A wonderful combination of flavors and color. Quick and easy for week day meals and a wonderful entree for a dinner party. Joining Zaar has reunited me with many old favorites long lost in my 35 year old collection of recipes. This recipe, written on the back of a sales slip, probably came from a doctor's or dentist's office as I looked through magazines while waiting to be seen.
I came up with this recipe when my husband wanted fried chicken, but I wasn't in the mood for traditional. Now, he asks for this at least once a month. I usually serve it with a salad and garlic bread. It's delicious!
