Tried another new recipe and can highly recommend it to all, so good.

Creamy Kale Salad
4 cups chopped kale (ribs removed for another use)
1/4 cup chopped red onion
3 tablespoons diced red pepper
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 packets Splenda
1 lemon, zested and juiced
1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Mix the kale with the sea salt and massage it in to break up some of the fiber. Add red onion and red pepper.
Whisk sour cream, mayo, Splenda, lemon zest and lemon juice together in a bowl, pour over the kale mixture and toss to coat. Refrigerate 2 hours to overnight. Sprinkle with sunflower seeds if desired which I didn't do. Toss before serving.

Serving size is 1/2 cup of the kale with values of Fat 5.8, Carbs 6.63, Fibre 1/38, Net Carbs 5.16, Protein 1.85 and Calories 78.25.

I made it in the morning and had it for dinner last night, apparently it's even better the 2nd day according to the reviews. Great way to get really nutritious leafy greens, tastes very good.

Hope you enjoy!

Linda, I don't find the kale chips to be anything to write home about at all but this salad is really good. Seems like a lot of dressing at first but once it sits it gets soaked up. I threw some minced garlic in too, can't just go by the rules you know, have to put my stamp on it too! Hope you enjoy, I was very pleased with it.

Jaime, made the biscuits last night and liked them, should 1/2 the recipe for only 2 people as it makes 12 which will take a long time to get eaten round here. Wonder how they freeze, guess I'll find out.

A topping for any of the muffin in a minute or for Oopsie buns.

For Frosting:
2 T cream cheese
dash of Splenda and vanilla
Nuke the cream cheese to soften it, add the Splenda and vanilla.

If you want to you could always add in some of the DaVinci syrup for flavor instead of the vanilla or change the vanilla to cinnamon, more fibre!

Taco Soup Yes I said Taco Soup and it is GREAT!!!

Edit - Servings - this really makes 8 1 cup servings using 24 oz of beef broth. That means that the nutritional value below will be reduced.

http://csrafamilynews.com/2012/11/low-carb-taco-soup/


It is spicy so you could use mild rotel. I will sprinkle a little shredded cheese on top and add a dolop of sour cream. Enjoy!

This is the link and it does not have nutritional value but I figure it at about 6 1 cup servings and each serving as the below values:

Toni the soup was fantastic - I did edit it because it made more like 8 cups. I did not edit the values but of course 8 cups means they are lowered. Also, I used beef broth powered so instead of two cans I added 24 oz. of water with three teaspoons of the powdered broth to it.

I changed up the Coconut Candy some, why use Almonds when Macadamia nuts have more fat?

Simple Coconut Oil Chocolate Candies
• 1/2 cup Coconut Oil
• 1/4 cup Cocoa Powder (raw cocoa powder is preferred)
• 2 Tbsp Splenda
• 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
• ¼ cup chopped Macadamia nuts
Melt the coconut oil and add the Splenda. Whisk and add the cocoa powder. Whisk occasionally while pouring into a silicone ice cube tray or silicone mini muffin tray. Makes 14. Cool for 30 minutes in the fridge or freezer.
Note: Time varies depending on how hot the coconut oil was when you started. If the oil is only just reached its melting stage, these will set in as little as 15 minutes.
Recipe makes 14, 1 candy per serving

I just had this for dinner and it was so good that I'd be remiss if I didn't share the recipe.

Buffalo Chicken Thighs

Even my daughter and fiancee went back for seconds. I used Frank's Hot Sauce. Absolutely delicious!

I'd like to share with you all my favorite fat fast recipe, its coconut chocolate mousse!

Here is the recipe: Search youtube for "Fluffy Chocolate Mousse for P2, P3 or Fat Fast Days", I posted the link before and the post was filtered.

I had to make some modifications for it to work as advertised, here they are:

1. For me the solid part comes out much more solid so I mash it up with a fork and slowly add back in some of the coconut water while blending until I get the right mousse texture. If it feels 'heavy & thick' you need to add a little more water and continue to blend. It should feel like cool whip.

2. For me, the solid part was not as big as in the recipe, only about half the can, so I use two cans.

3. I changed the amounts to 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, and 1/2 tablespoon cocoa powder, for me the recipe chocolate flavor was way too strong. I suggest you add the cocoa in 1/2 tables spoon increments while blending and taste as you go.

Out of two cans I can make 4 meals, I also make these on the first morning of my fast and drink the leftover coconut water for my breakfast.

Oh, yeah, one last thing on the mousse recipe. When buying the coconut milk in the store, take the can and rotate it back and forth next to your ear, if you can hear the liquid do not buy that can, it will not solidify overnight.

If you have not tried this recipe and you want something for a fat fast, your in for a real treat. This is almost the perfect food for a fat fast, and tastes like a decadent desert and for me is a satisfying meal (at least as far as fasting goes).

Good luck everyone. Enjoy

For those wanting another candy fix and on the Fat Fast here's another really good one.

Peanut Butter Cup
1 stick of butter or 1/2 cup coconut oil
1 square unsweetened baking chocolate
1/3 cup Splenda
1 tbsp cream or half and half
1 tbsp peanut butter
Sliced almonds (for fat fast use pecan or macadamia nuts)
Put 8 muffin cup liners in muffin tin. Add a layer of nuts in the bottom of each one. Melt butter/coconut oil, chocolate and splenda in microwave. Stir in cream and peanut butter. Divide evenly among the muffin cups. Freeze until solid. Keep frozen or refrigerated or they'll melt. Eat directly from the freezer.

They must have used big muffin cups, I got 10 mini ones full to the very top out of this recipe.

Count for 8, Calories 178, Fat 19.66, Carbs 1.98, Fiber 1.05, Net .93, Protein 1.92

Count for 10, Cal 142.4, Fat 15.73, Carbs 1.58, Fib .84, Net .74, Protein .95

Yummy!

Was just reading through the new recipes and saw the one with the cream of mushroom soup. I actually have a recipe for homemade cream of mushroom that is very good. I was actually surprised that it tasted so good. I'll see if I can scrounge it up and post it here when I do Smile
