Note: I absolutely love flaxseed in my salad. I also love grilled vegetables in my salad, too. This was such a yummy and satisfying dinner after my nightly run! Not only that, in between cooking my meals tonight, I left my apartment to do laundry in the basement. came back to my apartment and my house smelled like coconut. I love it.
Directions: Mix egg whites, flax and baking powder. Spray pam with non-stick skillet. Pour batter and cook like pancakes. Add cheese. Meanwhile, cook onion and tomato in pan. Top on cheese. Top with spices.
Note: For some reason lately, I have been CRAVING rice lately... Rice gets a lot of bad wrap because of the carbs, but being a runner, my body craves the carbs. In addition, it's a staple for bodybuilders. I will be honest, there was a period of time when I first started dieting, I was scared to eat rice. But, as the old saying goes, it's all about moderation. However, rice is very good for you and tastes so good!
Note: I enjoyed my soy flour brownie so much, I decided to make a coconut flour brownie. I thought a one-for-one substitution would work, but it totally didn't. Came out much thicker batter. I added one more egg white and that seemed to do the trick. This came out less brownie-like looking (I used a bit less cocoa powder), but it tasted better than the soy flour. I ended up eating it with a spoon out the bowl. I didn't have any topping, but you could add peanut butter or cream cheese.
Directions: - In a shallow bowl, rub coconut oil with paper towel. This prevents sticking. If you don't have coconut oil, use Pam, or nothing and get a good arm workout scrubbing the dish :) Mix all ingredients and cook in micro for 3 minutes at full power.
Note: OK, so I sometimes gnaw on carrots while cooking or else I will eat everything I make. I pulled out this carrot today and started cracking up... little flexible guy! (I don't know why I found it so hilarious)
Note: oh wow!... some days I forget I am dieting :) I had this for breakfast pre-workout. But, it makes an awesome dessert. It kind of evolved while I was cooking, as you can tell from the pics. I added in fat free creamer and xantham gum later. Both are completely optional if you don't have either. If you don't use cream, you might need more milk to thin it out.
Ingredients: - 1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese - 1 tablespoon cheesecake flavored sugar free fat free jello instant pudding - banana - splash of sugar free maple syrup - splash of torani (optional if you don't have it) - packet of desired sweetener (stevia, splenda, equal) - 1 oz almond milk (can sub fat free milk) - cinnamon - dash of xantham gum (optional) - 1 tablespoon fat free cream (optional)
