multi-purpose “egg”

multi-purpose “egg”

I am LOVING this {FP} baking blend mix from Raye’s Place. {{I’ve used another baking blend she put together before–and loved it too!}} {Sorry these photos are so blurry… phone camera} She has several great recipes on her blog, but I decided to try something so simple I couldn’t not share it [Yes, that’s a double negative used correctly.] I take a single egg and blend it in my single-serve ninja blender until it is fully blended! I then add 1 tbsp of the {FP} baking mix and then add any flavorings I want. You could go sweet with some stevia and cinnamon or savory [as shown here] with some leftover taco meat and cheese {then top it with a good salsa}. I then cook it stove-top like a pancake! It gets fluffy and, if made simply plain, can be spread thin and used as a wrap for sandwich meats. I’ve also made it plain and used it in place of [normal, white] rolls that I made for the rest of my family. I hope this gives a little inspiration to...

This is definitely going to become a staple in my THM pantry! I used it to make the CRANBERRY UPSIDE DOWN CAKE instead of following the exact recipe…

tomato basil cheese dip/log {S}

This flavor combo was quite a hit at a recent baby-shower I attended, so I thought I’d share it! [even though I have no photos ] What I used: 1- 8 oz package of cream cheese-softened at room temp 1/2 cup non-fat Greek yogurt 1 Tbsp chopped sun-dried tomatoes {they are like tomato raisins. } 2 Tbsp dried Basil 4 Tbsp grated parmesan cheese 1/2 tsp glucomannan {completely optional, but does firm up the consistency} 2 tsp good kosher or sea salt 1 tsp pepper 2 tsp powdered garlic 2 tsp powdered onion Directions Put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix with a beater for 3-4 minutes or until fully incorporated. Chill. Form a ball or log and cover with chopped  nuts or seeds {we have a nut allergy so I used sunflower seeds} or keep in a bowl to serve as a dip. Serve with your favorite crackers, but to keep this [S], serve with {THM} flax or other seed...

a cool, refreshing snack {FP}

Sometimes I have a twinge of hunger in the afternoon, but it is just too close to supper to eat a full-on snack… So, what’s a girl to do? Following the THM way, I prefer to keep a snack like this very neutral [FP, by acronym] and have a good [lean] protein with some non-starchy veggy. Dice a cucumber… I {LOVE} cucumbers. Add a dollop of fat-free or reduced fat cottage cheese {check your container for serving size and do not exceed carb/fat limit for FP} {I LOVE the Daisy brand, but canNOT find it around my home… so just get the best you can find as far as added ingredients} {you could also use non-fat Greek yogurt, if you like the tang} sprinkle on your favorite blend of herbs &/or spices {I enjoy a ‘steak seasoning’ with salt/pepper and garlic powder} if feeling fancy, a very small sprinkle of freshly grated Parm is nice too [check your total fat/carbs to keep in the FP range] Relax and enjoy… before rushing off to fix supper!...
