This is something I whipped up as a refreshing, cold, very low calorie drink.
The nestle baking cocoa only has 15 calories per tablespoon and i used only about about 1/4 of that. Equal 0 calorie sweetener makes for a pleasant addition to satisfy your sweet tooth.
I couldn't find any pancake recipes to serve one person and I did not want to have left over batter or have to freeze unused pancakes...just not the same. So here is a recipe that I divised using bisquick heart smart along with a serving suggestion of strawberry syrup which completely depends on your taste and can be made with any other frozen fruit. By all means use any type of milk that you want I just prefer soy. Also, try experimenting with different flavors of flavoring syrups.
Don't knock it till you try it! This is extremely low cal. If you use fat free cottage cheese you get 40 calories for 1/4 cup. Boullion cube is 5 calories and 3 cups of lettuce is under 20 calories. So the whole things is less than 65 calories but tastes rich and creamy.
Diet cocoa has 25 calories per packet and soy slender chocolate has 70 calories per cup. Da Vinci or torani sugar free syrups have 0 calories per oz. So the whole recipe clocks in at only about 40-45 calories. Enjoy!
Of course the ingredients can be substituted to include non-diet sugarry and dairy versions, but this way you have the option of having a guilt-free beverage all to yourself!
I LOVE green bean casserole...I HATE leftovers. This recipe can serve as a side dish for two or as a whole meal for one. If you want you can leave out the mushrooms and substitute for cream of celery. However, I really like mushrooms. Some people may also like to sprikle some french's dried onions on top, but once again, it is not my thing.
Who says you have to spend a long time cooking a tasty, healthy, filling breakfast? Not me! You can easily double this recipe, just use a bigger bowl. Feel free to change up ingredients too; these are just my personal favourites. The red sauce in the pictures is just something I blended up with fresh tomatoes, etc. You can use whatever you want with this versatile dish.
Cooking for one is more difficult than cooking for a crowd. Sometimes you want something savory but don't have time to make it. This recipe can be modified to serve as many people as you want and tastes as if you've spent hours preparing it! Substitute any potato you want, btw. Just make sure their skin is thin enough to crisp.
Very filling, a low calorie comfort food that you can eat at any time of day. Recipe is easily doubled, trippled, etc. I like to make this in my toaster oven but it can easily be made in a toaster and a broiler or on a grill.
Great the first day, even better on the second. I love pumpkin soup and I made this hearty version. Serve with some crusty bread for a real, stick to your bones meal! You can of course make this from fresh pumpkin, but canned is a lot easier and can be found year-round in the baking aisle. Feel free to alter paprika, dill, garlic powder, and salt to taste.
This is rice that goes practically with anything. You can have it as a side for meat, or mix it with seafood, and it tastes just as great.
I made it the other day with Calamari. It was pretty amazing!
Note: I made this recipe to be low in calories, so you can easily substitute the Pam for butter or oil.
Very easy with great flavor. Very healthy too. I use all fresh ingredients usually and soy milk instead of regular for the sauce. Also I like to substitute Bisquick heart smart for the flour. However, those are all personal preferences. This isn't out of a cookbook, just something I made up so feel free to tweak to personal preferences.
Cooking times are an approximation, use your judgement based on veggie tenderness and sauce thickness.
Goes well with biscuits or nice, hearty bread.
