    *** The delicious "cut-friendly" recipe thread ***

    The delicious "cut friendly" recipe thread

    First off, much thanks to the illustrious Emma-Leigh for hooking up the the sticky on this. She is hereby awarded internets. Internets awarded!

    I thought it would be a spectacular idea if we could get a recipe thread up for the Losing Fat forum. The keto forum has their own recipes subforum geared towards their specific dietary goals (recipes that are low in carbs, high in protein, etc), so we should have one geared towards our specific dietary needs. But until we get our own forum, a sticky should do the trick.

    In this thread, post recipes that are ideal for "cutting" or losing weight. Some qualities that would make a recipe ideal for this purpose are:

    1) Being low in calories
    2) Being satiating
    3) Being a lower-cal version of other "less diet friendly" high-cal foods
    4) Being high in protein
    5) Causing you to thank the diety of your choice that such a food could possibly exist and yet be so low cal
    6) Causing you to engage in philosophical cogitation about how the perceptual quality of "tasting good" and the physical quality of a food "being bad for you" really aren't all that related


    If you have a recipe that meets any of the above criteria - post it up!

    A final note: it is not required, but strongly encouraged, that you post the nutritional facts of your recipe as well.
    At the very least, posting how many calories and grams of protein your recipe has per serving would help everyone out. (as well as how many servings your recipe makes)

    Some of you have lost hundreds of pounds and must have come up with some delicious recipes to stay sane by now. So post them up

    Now post!

    Also, of course, the obligatory "how dieting works" disclaimer:

    ANY food is, of course, "okay" to eat while dieting, provided you don't go over your caloric limit for the day. However, coming up with low-cal versions of very high-cal foods is never a bad idea, so you can eat more than a little bit of them.

    People have been doing this for a long time - using egg whites instead of eggs and skim milk instead of whole milk being perhaps the canonical examples of such behavior. You can, of course, still drink whole milk on a diet and continue to lose weight - but you have to drink less of it.

    This thread is meant to be a larger abstraction of the "skim milk instead of whole milk" concept with all kinds of different foods. It is not meant to spur you into paranoid behavior into only eating "good" foods while dieting, just as a tool to make your life more convenient.

    AKA - relax

    You speak just like my ex-professor at my university hehe!! so formal!

    I have used few recipes from an amazing site, which I will post in so that everyone can check it out.

    These are few I have tried

    Frozen Banana Protein Ice Cream

    Ingredients

    * 1 frozen banana, cut into pieces before freezing
    * 2 tbsp skim milk (or your favorite milk substitute)
    * ½ scoop (16 g) vanilla whey protein powder

    Directions

    Add all ingredients to your food processor and blend until smooth and whipped-looking. Using a spatula, scrape “ice cream” into serving bowl. Enjoy!

    Tip: If the banana gets mashed and stuck on the bottom of the container so the blades can’t get to it, just add a little more milk to get it moving.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------

    Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries

    Ingredients

    * 1 tbsp ground cumin
    * 1 tsp onion powder
    * 1 tsp garlic powder
    * 1/2 tsp chili powder
    * 1/2 tsp salt
    * 1/2 tsp black pepper
    * 1 tbsp olive oil + drizzle
    * 2 medium size sweet potatoes (about 16 oz total)

    Directions

    Preheat oven to 500° F. Cover baking sheet with foil (for easy clean up) or skip this step. Drizzle a little olive oil onto baking sheet and wipe with a paper towel to coat evenly.

    I like to coat the baking sheet as well as add a thin coating of oil on the fries themselves, to ensure that they do not stick (without having to add massive amounts of oil).

    In a small bowl, mix spices together with a fork. Set aside.

    Cut sweet potatoes into ½” x ½” fries. I tend to slice the potato stick in half as well if the potatoes are really long. I leave the skin on, for nutritional purposes as well as for the extra crispiness that it adds.

    In a large bowl, combine the cut potatoes and oil, and toss with one hand. With your other hand, add the spice mixture a sprinkle at a time, and continue to toss until the potatoes are evenly coated.

    Arrange the potatoes in a single layer on the baking sheet and place on the middle shelf of the oven. Bake until edges are crisp and potatoes are cooked through — about 15-20 minutes.

    Exclamation Chicken and Black Bean Chili (HOT)

    In a large hot skillet, ligtly oiled (I use PAM Olive oil spray), combine these ingredients until chicken is cooked and has developed a nice carmelization. Using a very hot skillet works best as you want to get extra flavor from the carmelized meat and veggies.
    -4 large Chicken Breasts (defrosted and cubed into 1/2 inch or smaller cubes)
    -1 onion diced
    -3 gloves garliced minced
    -1 red bell pepper diced


    At the same time put all of these ingredients into a large pot over a medium heat until it begins to simmer. Then back the heat off and keep it over a low heat.
    -4 oz. chicken stock
    -1 can of black beans (drained)
    -1 can of stewed tomatoes
    -1 can of diced tomatoes
    -1 small can of diced jalopenos
    -24 oz. of v8 juice (I use spicy, but you can opt for lite if calories are scarce)
    -Chili powder (to your prefered amount of spiciness... I love mine hot)
    -Coarse Black pepper (to your liking on how much)
    -a few pinches of kosher salt
    -Hot sauce (add enough until you get the desired heat from the chili you'd like. I add ALOT)

    Once the chicken and veggies are cooked combine them in the pot and allow to simmer together for at least an hour. This dish is actually best eaten the day after because the flavors tend to mesh together and you taste the dish more as a whole intead of as individual ingredients.

    Sorry no calorie counts since ingredients vary so much... just add em up as you go along. Makes about 8 serving though.... or 2 for me

    A list of low-cal ingredients

    BTW, for those of you who know cooking or baking "theory," I have a very incomplete list of ingredients that might prove to be useful. Some obvious choices, and some non-obvious ones here.

    NOTE AGAIN: THESE ARE NOT THE "ONLY" INGREDIENTS YOU CAN USE. I just picked them because they have some exceptional property that makes them ideal for cutting.

    Exceptionally propertied Fats:
    - Applesauce (works as a low cal substitute for oil in some cases, mainly during baking)
    - Margarine (tastes awesome, lower in cals than butter, I prefer "I can't believe it's not butter")
    - Zero-cal cooking spray (just don't use too much)
    Exceptionally propertied Carb/Fiber sources:
    - Wheat bran (extremely low cal and high in fiber. Might be good for low-cal pancakes or something. Haven't messed with it too much yet)
    - Wheat germ (low cal as well and full of micronutrients, gives off a "wheaty" flavor to what you add it to)
    - Matzo (a huge sheet of this stuff has only 100 cals. Be creative in how you can use it in recipes)
    - Low-cal vegetables in general (celery, broccoli, carrots, etc)
    - Old Fashioned Rolled Oats (non-instant oatmeal. very satiating relative to its caloric content. 150 cals of oatmeal will fill most people up)
    - Oat bran? (haven't messed with it personally, supposed to have more fiber/less cals/more protein than oats)
    - Shirataki Noodles (0 calorie noodles, made entirely of insoluble fiber. There is also the "tofu added" version, which has like 40 cals a bag, or still almost nothing)
    Exceptionally propertied Protein sources:
    - Unflavored milk protein isolate or casein (can act as a thickener, has almost no taste)
    - Egg whites (basically raw protein, EXTREMELY low in calories, use two for every whole egg)
    - Lean meats of any kind: tuna, chicken breast, ham, turkey, even beef (high in protein, low in fat and thus lower in overall cals)
    - Whey powder (doesn't act as a thickener in the same way that casein does, but can be useful to add protein to recipes)
    - Low-fat cottage cheese (Many report that the 1% version tastes so much better than the skim version that it's worth the extra bit of calories. useful during baking)
    Exceptionally propertied spices/sweeteners/flavorers:
    - Stevia (zero-cal sweetener that imo tastes way better than splenda, especially the "truvia" brand, also natural for those of you into that sort of thing)
    - Cinnamon (yum)
    - Unsweetened cocoa powder (low in cals, adds flavor)
    - Pumpkin Puree (adds a lot of flavor and a cup only has 81 cals)
    - Wheat germ (gives off a "wheaty" flavor to what you add it to, can be used as a flavoring during baking as well as a carb source)
    - Bacon salt!!! (low sodium, zero cal, absolutely delicious, makes everything tastes like bacon!)
    - Vegetable juice like V8 (adds lots of flavor to sauces and stuff and has little cals)
    - Black Pepper
    - Red Pepper
    - Every Mrs. Dash seasoning
    - Barbecue sauce
    - Lemon Juice (adds tangy flavor, zero cals)
    Exceptionally propertied other things that didn't fit anywhere else:
    - Skim milk (used in almost everything)
    - Corn starch (thickens up a mix considerably, 1 tbsp is probably too much and has 30 cals)
    - Zero-cal cooking spray (The best thing ever for frying stuff. Just don't use too much)
    - A foreman grill (although I dunno if the fat reduction is as big as you think, but you can see a ton of fat in )

    General strategies:
    - Subtly remove fat from the recipe without people noticing. Removing too much oil can make a recipe taste bland and lifeless, but if you don't overdo it nobody will notice a difference, and it'll be less calories.
    - Some ways to do the above: try replacing whole milk with skim milk, and butter with margarine (or applesauce), halving the amount of oil used, or replacing whole eggs with egg whites

    - Subtly replace carbs with insoluble fiber without people noticing. Overdoing this can make the recipe change in texture and taste like cardboard, but if you don't overdo it the same thing will happen as removing fat.
    - The main way I've found to try this: substituting some wheat flour out for wheat bran. Come up with your own ideas.
    - Also throwing 2 tbsp of wheat germ into a recipe adds only 50 cals and makes the whole thing taste like wheat. Can be very useful to "reinject" wheaty flavor into something that you just took flour out of

    - For really sugar-heavy recipes, consider replacing some or all of the sugar with a zero-cal sweetener
    - Stevia is my favorite. Truvia tastes almost exactly like sugar. Other brands (stevia IN THE RAW) taste more like licorice and not like sugar at all. Other options: splenda, aspartame, saccharin (ew)
    - Unless the recipe is extremely sugar heavy you are not likely to save many calories with this approach and it isn't worth it. DO NOT BE SUGARPHOBIC. Remember the goal is to just reduce calories, not avoid "sugar" out of superstition.
    - Overdoing this can also make the recipe taste weird. Consider using half sugar and half sweetener

    - Add protein to recipes without compromising the flavor or texture, to help meet protein requirements
    - I find that in SOME cases (pancakes mostly), using a mixture of unflavored casein or milk protein isolate and wheat germ can substitute for flour. The casein acts as a thickener, just like flour, and the wheat germ makes it taste sort of like actual flour. However, I find that this doesn't always work - I tried making muffins with this one time and they were chewy and tasted like pencil eraser
    - You can sometimes do this by throwing in low fat cottage cheese into the recipe (works well with pancakes)
    - Also throwing in extra egg whites can sometimes help
    - Throwing in small amounts of flavored or unflavored whey/protein powder of your choice can also help

    Some great recipes in here, I know I'll be trying some this week!

    One of my personal favorites, MEATLOAF!

    Ingredients-

    1lb Ground turkey
    1 cup green pepper
    1 cup white onion
    2 carrots
    1/4 tsp Tuscan spices

    Directions-

    Dice the green pepper and white onion; grate the 2 carrots. Ground the turkey meat. Mix well with 1/4 teaspoon Tuscan spices. Spray loaf pan with Pam, Pack turkey loaf mixture in pan, bake at 350 till crisp.

    Makes 4 servings: 295 calories, 32g protein, 7g carbs, 15g fat per serving (good source of Vitamin A).
    If that is too large a serving, you can cut each in half and get 8 servings: 148calories, 16g protein, 3.5g carbs, 7.5g fat per serving.

    -----------------------------------------------------------

    Here's a desert that I found:

    Protein Brownies

    Ingredients-

    2/3 cup protein powder (I use ON 100% Whey Double Rich Chocolate)
    2/3 cup wheat flour, whole grain
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 tsp baking powder
    1 cup unsweetened applesauce
    1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    2 cup SPLENDA granular
    6 egg whites
    1 egg, large
    1 1/2 tsp vanilla

    Directions-

    Mix dry together, mix applesauce with cocoa, splenda, eggs and vanilla. Mix together bake in ungreased pan for 30-35 min at 350F.

    Makes 16 servings (1 serving = 1 brownie): 70 calories, 7g protein, 10g carb, 2g fat per serving.

    Insight, I like this..very good idea to spread the knowledge of low-cal grubbin'! Well I've posted this before in Wave's threads but I think it'll be smart to throw it in here as well....

    SHIRATAKI NOODLES- google them...they basically have 0 calories. They noodles that you do NOT have to cook, you just take them out of the bag and give them a quick water rinse and bam, you're good to go! They are good for adding or substituting for normal pasta, noodles, or rice. I eat them for lunch everyday with a piece of beef or chicken and all I have to count is the beef and chicken b/c the noodles have 0 calories! They don't have much of a taste of their own, they're more known for soaking up the flavors of what you add with it due to their texture. I believe they also have good health benefits! Check them out!

    BUFFALO/HOT/TABASCO SAUCE-These are great additions to anyone's diet who are looking to cut calories. Not only do most hot sauces have 00000 calories, but they taste great! I substitute hot sauce for bbq sauce or even mayo etc...things that have like 200 calories per usage.
    I lift real heavy weights all the time but unless you saw me in the weight room you'd never know because I eat way too much food and I can't figure out how to stop!

    Dude, the Shirataki noodles sound amazing. I added them to the list. I've done some research and it seems like there are two kinds of shirataki noodles: the kind with tofu (which have a trace amount of calories, like 40 for the entire bag or so) and the kind without (which have zero cals). Which kind do you usually use and how do they taste? I hear that the tofu ones are better enough that they're worth the extra miniscule amount of cals.

    Just tried the tofu kind last night. They're kinda fishy and have a really chewy texture but that could be fixed up if you put some effort into preparing them. I didn't I just put a little soy sauce on them lol, not the tastiest way to eat them I'm sure. Definitely worth checking out though.

    Been around for AGES - tried and true japanese secret for weight loss and general health.

    And a few places you can get lots of different varieties:
    http://www.miraclenoodle.com/
    http://www.shiratakinoodles.net/

    And stacks of recipes here:
    http://shirataki-noodles.recipesilove.com/sitemap-all/
    http://shirataki-noodles.com/shirata...e-recipes.html

    Hungry girl also did some good recipe ideas:
    http://www.hungry-girl.com/week/week...s.php?isid=896


    For what to do with them? I normally stir fry mine. They don't go well without cooking (too slimy). But cooked up with a stack of vegetables and some meat or eggs they are yummy [They go really well with wakami and spinach].

    ps - I would be careful with eating too much too soon - some people find they cause a bit of gastric upset!

    WOW I'm glad I made this thread

    Although this:
    made of naturally water soluble fiber with no fat, sugar, or starch.
    They mean INSOLUBLE fiber, right? soluble fiber is like 2.2 cals/g, although counted as 4 cals/g in the states... :\

    This is the other 'catch'.

    It is, actually, a soluble fibre - made from the japanese yam Konjac - http://www.konjacfoods.com/
    http://www.glucomannan.com/

    A little more on it:
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/14983741

    So, yes, depending on the water content of the noodle - it WILL have some calories....

    Yeah, but it says that 3 oz of it has zero cals. Does that mean that every 3 oz of noodles has less than 1 gram of fiber? What's the rest made out of?

    edit: just saw this:
    Konjac Glucomannan has the highest water holding capacity of any soluble fiber - up to 100 times its own water weight.
    That explains that then.

    I have used few recipes from an amazing site, which I will post in so that everyone can check it out.

    These are few I have tried

    Frozen Banana Protein Ice Cream

    Ingredients

    * 1 frozen banana, cut into pieces before freezing
    * 2 tbsp skim milk (or your favorite milk substitute)
    * ½ scoop (16 g) vanilla whey protein powder

    Directions

    Add all ingredients to your food processor and blend until smooth and whipped-looking. Using a spatula, scrape “ice cream” into serving bowl. Enjoy!

    Tip: If the banana gets mashed and stuck on the bottom of the container so the blades can’t get to it, just add a little more milk to get it moving.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------


    Protein Pancakes

    Ingredients

    * 1/2 cup rolled oats
    * 1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese (or low fat or full fat)
    * 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
    * 2 tbsp flaxseed meal
    * 1/4 tsp cinnamon
    * 1 tsp vanilla extract
    * 1/4 cup water
    * pinch of salt
    * 1/2 tsp aluminum-free baking powder
    * 1 scoop vanilla whey protein powder

    * cooking spray or coconut oil
    * agave syrup

    Direction

    1. Heat medium size skillet to medium heat.
    2. Place the oats, cottage cheese, apple sauce, flax, cinnamon, vanilla extract, water, and salt in the blender and blend on high for 1 minute, until incorporated thoroughly.
    3. Add the baking powder and protein powder and give the blender a few quick pulses to incorporate.
    4. Coat the skillet with oil and pour 1/4 of the batter on the skillet.
    5. After bubbles begin to form around the edges, flip the pancake to cook the other side.
    6. Remove pancake and continue to cook the rest of the cakes.
    7. Serve with agave syrup, fruit, peanut butter, etc.

    Tip: Place cooked pancakes in a slightly warmed oven, to keep the heated while you finish making the rest of the batch.

    Yields 4 servings.

    Chocolate Protein Yogurt Parfait

    Ingredients

    * 3/4 cup 2% ***e plain yogurt
    * 1 serving (32g) chocolate whey protein powder (I like Optimum Nutrition Natural)
    * 1 tbsp water
    * 1/4 cup blueberries, fresh
    * 1 tbsp Uncle Sam cereal

    Directions

    Add yogurt, protein powder, and water to food processor and blend together. You may need to use a spatula to scrape down the sides of the food processor container to ensure that the protein powder is thoroughly incorporated.

    Pour yogurt mixture into a bowl. Top with blueberries and Uncle Sam. Indulge… and feel good about it!

    Note: For less calories and/or protein, use ½ scoop of protein powder rather than a full serving. You could also add cocoa powder for more chocolatey flavor!
    --------------------------------------------------------------------

    Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries

    Ingredients

    * 1 tbsp ground cumin
    * 1 tsp onion powder
    * 1 tsp garlic powder
    * 1/2 tsp chili powder
    * 1/2 tsp salt
    * 1/2 tsp black pepper
    * 1 tbsp olive oil + drizzle
    * 2 medium size sweet potatoes (about 16 oz total)

    Directions

    Preheat oven to 500° F. Cover baking sheet with foil (for easy clean up) or skip this step. Drizzle a little olive oil onto baking sheet and wipe with a paper towel to coat evenly.

    I like to coat the baking sheet as well as add a thin coating of oil on the fries themselves, to ensure that they do not stick (without having to add massive amounts of oil).

    In a small bowl, mix spices together with a fork. Set aside.

    Cut sweet potatoes into ½” x ½” fries. I tend to slice the potato stick in half as well if the potatoes are really long. I leave the skin on, for nutritional purposes as well as for the extra crispiness that it adds.

    In a large bowl, combine the cut potatoes and oil, and toss with one hand. With your other hand, add the spice mixture a sprinkle at a time, and continue to toss until the potatoes are evenly coated.

    Arrange the potatoes in a single layer on the baking sheet and place on the middle shelf of the oven. Bake until edges are crisp and potatoes are cooked through — about 15-20 minutes.

I prefer the 0 calories ones simply because they have less calories and usually are cheaper. But since I add a piece of protein and some buffalo sauce to the equation, that difference in taste is small. I'm glad to see people are reluctant to try, they're a staple in my cut.
    I lift real heavy weights all the time but unless you saw me in the weight room you'd never know because I eat way too much food and I can't figure out how to stop!

    Yeah, I stumbled across these a couple of weeks ago. I bought the tofu type, but two servings is only 40 cals, which i can deal with. Other than being a bit slimy, they taste just like the real thing, just a 20 cals compared to 210. With any luck, they'll be a staple in my diet too.
    The best things in life are beyond money; their price is agony and sweat and devotion.

    What, then, shall we say in response to this? If God is for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31

    One of my favorite meals is made with shredded zuccihni is chicken parmesan over shredded zuccihni topped with pasta sauce.

    Coat the chicken breast in an egg white (2 if it's a larger one), drag through a mixture 1/4 cup italian seasoned bread crumbs and 2 tbsp of parmesan cheese until covered. Bake in the oven at 350 until done (about 20 minutes). While the chicken is baking, shred about 2-3 cups of zuccihni (about 2 mediums sized ones) and cook on medium heat adding garlic powder and Mrs. Dash to taste. Add a cup of sauce (jar of whatever brand) to the cooked zucchini and cook until sauce is hot. When both chicken and zuccihni are done add the zucchini to a plate and slice the chicken into strips and place on top ( or mix into) the zucchini and sauce mix.

    Sodium levels are high in this but it's a large portion for around 400 calories and about 35-40 grams of protein. Pretty tasty and filling as well.

    I fell in love with this recipe, as my grandmother made it on numerous occasions when I was younger. It's super simple as well.

    1 package Sugar free GREEN jello
    1 or 2 (depending on size) Grated Carrots
    Diced Pineapple (optional)

    It's a no brainer, so just heat up and mix/stir up the jello, add the grated carrots and pineapple and enjoy a couple hours later. The carrots add a great texture that makes it taste a lot fuller than just plain jello which never does the job for me. Fresh pineapple goes great, but canned works too. (Or you can skip it all together)

    It tastes great, and very low cal.
