Chilled Carrot Ginger Soup




Chilled soup really hits the spot in this 90 + degree weather!

I love soup, but it was even too hot and humid for me to eat hot soup yesterday. So, I made my quickest and easiest soup ever -  Carrot Ginger Soup  and then chilled it for dinner.  It was really refreshing and delicious. 

With some Greek yogurt or sour cream and a little cumin, it was the perfect dinner !

It's not a new recipe , but I had never chilled it before. 
I'm amazed how many vegetable soups taste good served  hot or chilled. 

In the past I've made borsht topped with sour cream, sorrel ( which is like spinach) topped with sour cream, and chilled corn chowder

Do you ever think of eating your soups chilled ?  What kind of chilled soup do you make? Sweet or Savory?

Gluten Free Snacks on WW



                                   

Healthy gluten free WW friendly snacks are easy when you think ahead!  I like to eat well and am conscious of my weight . I  realize that in order to eat healthy and look good,  I need to have some healthy and easy snacks ready on the spot for when I'm tired, stressed, or just plain hungry and am on the go. I call them my  healthy " grab and go "  snacks.
                         
My "Grab and Go" snacks need to be quick and available for me when I am hungry,  tired, or in a hurry. It must be something healthy, low calorie ( of course gluten free) and easy to eat with minimal cooking that I can just see and grab or have with me.

The other day I was visiting The Positive Pear, a gluten free website for keeping healthy, happy and fit. That is where I saw the the quote:



“If You Keep Good Food In Your Fridge, You Will Eat Good Food” ~Errick McAdams”
It is so true. You need to keep good food in the fridge to eat good food! My motto is " Be Prepared". When I'm not prepared I am NOT at the mercy of foods that are way too caloric or not healthy choices.

I take some of my" Grab and Go" snacks to work or anytime I leave the house , just to make sure I stay on track for healthy eating. Otherwise I may go to things that I really don't want to eat because they are available and I'm tired or very hungry.

Here is my basic list:

Grab and Go snack #1   

 WW cheese stick and grape tomatoes    1 point plus total)


Simple, easy to grab or transport, and satisfying. I take this to work daily.
The Weight Watchers brand mozzarella cheese stick  is very tasty and only one points plus per stick!


Grab and Go snack #2 

Hard Boiled Eggs  ( 2 points plus each)

Hard Boiled Eggs
I either make my own in advance or if  really pressed for time , I  buy a bag of Eggland's Best Hard boiled or Trader Joe cage free brand. They run about $2.59 for 6 hb eggs and are worth the convenience if you pressed for time.
If I need a snack , the egg is ready to eat and satisfying. It transports to work or shopping too.


Grab and Go snack #3 

Quick Soup Purees I keep in a Container in the refrigerator ( zero PP)



Zero point plus soups. I make these on Sunday. They are very quick and easy to make and they are filling. I cook a vegetable, some spices, and puree in the blender.
I eat them when I want something satisfying or just want something hot. I put different spices in them and sometimes put some Greek yogurt in them. You could also add some vegetable broth.
I do the same thing for each of these soups. I boil the veggies, put in the blender and eat.
I keep a container of soup in the fridge ready to eat when I need something quick.


Here is a recipe for a Very fast and easy Carrot Ginger Soup 

Grab and Go snack #4 

Cut Up Fresh Fruit  (zero points plus)

Fresh Fruit- I make sure I buy enough for the week. I buy navel oranges, grapefruit, melon, organic apples. I cut up watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew in containers in the refrigerator. so they are ready when I am.




Grab and Go snack # 5-

Plain Greek Yogurt 3 points plus


Greek yogurt is rich and creamy, yet low in fat and calories. It's a great "grab and go  " snack when I need a fill in. I like the Chobani plain Non fat . A container is 3 points plus
I will eat it plain, but you could add some berries.

Of course I always keep raw or roasted veggies that I made in advance in the refrige ( I make them twice a week) are a nice addition to any of these Grab and Go snacks.
Roasted veggies are easy to make.

Should You Be Eating Cauliflower ?

                  
Cauliflower is low in carbohydrates and calories. When nutritionists say, "don't eat anything white", they are certainly not talking about cauliflower. I make pizza, mock potato salad, mock rice, mock rice risotto, mock mashed potatoes and more all from cauliflower and most of the recipes taste so good, you never know they are made from this vegetable. In addition, cauliflower is very healthy and should be part of your diet.

Here are three good reasons you should be eating this white versatile vegetable.
  • First of all, it is a healthy crucerferous vegetable which provides lots of antioxidants thought to protect against diseases like cancer and help build a strong immune system.
  • Second, it is low in fat, calories, and carbs making it a perfect diet food.
  • Third, it tastes great ( these recipes are amazing) and can take the place of starchy potatoes or rice in many interesting recipes that appeal to adults and children alike.
Over the past year, I have been collecting cauliflower recipes. It's amazing how versatile this vegetable can be. The recipes that I am going to share are all gluten free and vegetarian which is perfect if you are looking for more meatless meals. I am always amazed at how good each of the recipes turns out ( They never really taste like cauliflower)

The possibilities for low calorie or low carb recipes using cauliflower are endless and delicious..
You can rice it, roast it, mash it, devil it, make it into a crust or a fabulous risotto.

Cauliflower Rice :
Use cauliflower instead of rice for a great side dish that can be made lo carb or low calorie
It is so simple to make and it actually has the texture of rice.
Use 1 head of cauliflower, cut it into flowerettes.
Place in the food processor. Zip on off on off on off about three times and it will look like rice.
It's hard to believe it really works!

Cauliflower Rice 

To cook it for low carb rice:
Steam rice for 5 minutes until soft. Add butter , salt and pepper

To cook it for Low calorie rice:
Steam rice for 5 minutes until soft. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Recipe #1: The most basic
  • Roasted Cauliflower is one of my favorite recipes and by far is the simplest to make.Roasting brings out the best  flavor in any vegetable, and cauliflower is no exception

Before roasting I put these in a large zip loc bag with seasoning, ( oil if desired) and shake the bag to distribute the seasoning. If you want to keep it lower calorie, omit the oil in the bag and just spray with oil spray before roasting
.. will really crisp up when roasting. Bake at 450 degrees.
Put these on the bottom shelf so they don't burn and check after about 1/2 hour.

Mock Mashed Potato Type Cauliflower; 
This is very easy and tasty too. 
Steam the cauliflower flowerettes until tender, remove from steamer and mash with butter and a little cream or coconut milk. Serve for a low carb version of mashed potatoes.

Easiest way to cook Spaghetti Squash







I found the easiest way to cook spaghetti squash.
I am now totally into eating spaghetti squash, but it hasn't always been that way.

The first time I made spaghetti squash was twenty years ago, and I absolutely hated it  didn't like it!
It was really hard to cut, it was really messy to clean, I didn't care for the taste because I way overcooked it ( without knowing it ) and it was mushy.

Truthfully, I never ate it again until a few weeks ago.

.

 I re-considered making it after my daughter- in- law, Wendy, started talking about it.
She said she had been making spaghetti squash as a substitute for real pasta in her quest to lose weight. She said that she really loved it, and a cup of spaghetti squash has only 35 calories and provides fiber ( vitamins & minerals) as well. It can easily be eaten in any recipe in place of any pasta.

Wendy and I like a lot of the same foods, so I thought I would give it one more try.

 I went to the grocery store and bought a small spaghetti squash. I brought it home and was determined to find an easy way to cook it.. After talking to a few friends, I listened to their difficult methods that required that you: 
  • cut length wise in half
  •  scoop out the seeds ( which are really entwined in the squash)
  •  place in a baking dish face down in pan with a some water and bake
  • I said,
 " NO WAY!!! I refuse to cut the squash before cooking because it is hard as a rock and that is not easy! So I kept researching other methods. 

Here is the easiest way to cook spaghetti squash:
  • wash the outside of the squash well and pierce with a fork a few times
  •  place it on a cookie sheet 
  •  bake at 475 degrees for about 35- 40 minutes 
  • When done, you have to take it out immediately and cut half down the middle  (careful steam will escape and it's hot) to release the steam ( so it doesn't keep cooking and become to soft) .
  • There will be some seeds that you need to remove ( but it will be easier now)
  •  Once you remove the seeds, take a fork and begin to pull down the strands from the sides of the squash until you have a large bowl of what looks like yellow spaghetti.

I buy a small squash because it has less seeds.

Truthfully,when I made it this time,  it was love at first bite.

This interesting unusual vegetable  automatically created itself into hundreds of spaghetti like strands and  was absolutely delicious . With a little stretch of the imagination , it is a great substitute for  regular spaghetti. And of course is low calorie, healthy, and gluten free.

The secret is to eat it as you would spaghetti with a great marinara sauce or a basil pesto.
Personally, I used a vegetable green sauce that I whizzed up in my Vitamix ( or any strong blender) that had very few calories ( because I cut back on the oil) and lots of rich flavor.  I call it Presto ( not pesto) Vegetable Sauce

Spaghetti squash is a dieters best friend .

Garlic and Herb Roasted Tomatoes


I love all kinds of roasted vegetables, but this recipe for garlic and herb roasted tomatoes is exceptional.

Roasted tomatoes by themselves are fabulous, and roasted garlic by itself is delicious, but tomatoes slowly roasted together with fresh garlic, freshly snipped oregano, and fresh basil is sensational.

I found today's recipe for slow roasted garlic tomatoes on a great blog called, Mostly Food and Crafts which is my Secret Recipe Club partner for this month of June!

I selected the roasted tomato recipe because the recipe called for fresh oregano and fresh basil. Both of which were growing on my deck in pots.


Ingredients and Instructions from Mostly Food and Craft's site

 

What you need:
1 pint or 6-8 handfuls cherry tomatoes
2 teaspoons fresh basil, chopped
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 teaspoon kosher salt
2-3 splashes olive oil

What you do:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Cut a small slit n the top of each tomato.
Fill a small cast iron skillet with the tomatoes, slit side up.
Separate the  head of  garlic cloves and cut the cloves to fit and insert into the slits on top of the tomatoes.
Sprinkle the herbs and spices on top and then drizzle the olive oil over the tomatoes.
Roast the tomatoes for 35 minutes then remove from oven. Press the tomatoes with the back of a wooden spoon to release some of the juices. Stir a little to combine.
Return the pan to the oven and roast for another hour. 
Press tomatoes again to crush the roasted garlic and mix well.
Serve and enjoy!

** My adanptions:
 I didn't have a cast iron skillet, so I used a stainless steel skillet. Before I put the tomatoes back in the second time, I added some freshly squeezed lemon juice. Because I don't like things hot, I left out the red pepper.


Gather Ingredients
Slit the cherry  tomato and placed a piece of garlic inside


After I roasted the tomatoes, I used them for the topping on my cauliflower crusted low carb pizza.
                                
                                     Cooked cauliflower crusted pizza  without the roasted tomatoes
Roasted tomatoes on cauliflower crust before cooking 



My husband ate the tomato and garlic  as a side with some fried eggs, or you could eat them with humus, on top of rice, or with any vegetables. 

This recipe calls for an entire bulb of garlic peeled . See my post for how to peel the whole head in 1 minute.

Portion Control - When Less is More


Have you ever heard the expression, " Less is More"? It is certainly true for me when it comes to portion control. After my experience with pistachio nuts, I truly understand the meaning of that phrase.

The other day while shopping in our local supermarket, I noticed a new food item .
It was cute little individual size bags of pistachio nuts.
I loved the idea because the bags were portioned out, and I could just grab one for a snack on the run.
They were $1.00 a little snack bag of 1 and 1/2 ounce each
I thought that was reasonable and proceeded to take 10 bags.


However, as I approached the checkout counter, I realized I was paying at total of  $10.00  a pound for the little bags. I also realized I could could get a larger bag for only $6.99 pound.

So, I went back and bought one larger bag instead of the ten little individual sized bags.

                                   
Although the larger bag was a better value, in the case of dieting, I can honestly say , " Less is More"!
My intention was to go home and divide the large bag of pistachios into individual size bags.
Unfortunately,  it didn't work that way for me because pistachios are my weakness.

Once I opened that large bag, I started eating it.
I found out that no matter what the size of the bag , I want to eat it all.
The large bag did my diet in.
I ate 3/4 of it in one sitting.
Hard to believe , but true.
 I was on the computer and just having a good ole time, until I noticed a huge stack of shells staring me in the face.

The next time I buy pistachios I will be buying the little individual bags.

Now, I gladly pay the extra for ten individual sized little bags! I take one with me for a snack and that's it! In this case Less is More because it helps me stay on my diet and work with portion control.



  • What happens when you buy large size bags of snacks?
  •  Does it work for you? 
  • How do you manage portion control? 
  • What is your weakness? 
  • Are there things you just can't bring into the house

    Blogging on an iPad update !!




    UPDATE!!!!!!Blogging on the iPad update!  I Still need suggestions and comments!



    I've decided that there is no way to comfortably blog on an iPad!!!!
     I am using the Blogsy App and I bought a keyboard
    It takes forever and is not an exact science, so I am returning the iPad ( I like it in general, but can't blog well on it and it is too expensive to buy both)  and going to buy a laptop for blogging while traveling.
    Do you agree or disagree? Please share!


     If anyone who blogs knows any reason  that I have overlooked why I should hold onto the iPad for blogging while traveling, before I buy a laptop for that purpose, Give me your suggestions now, or forever hold your peace... thanks..

    Paleo Diet for Weight Loss - Guest Blogger



    I'm excited to introduce Jedha, today's Weight Loss Motivation guest blogger,  from  Paleo Weight Loss Coach. What is the Paleo diet ? Jedha's site explains that " The Paleo Diet is a lifestyle system that gets you eating the types of foods you were designed to eat. The benefits of eating the Paleo way is that you can lose weight easily and control your weight long term"

      I love the quote on her site that says,

    "Real food that gets real results". 

    Weight Loss Bootcamp: Here is her the new article with a program for weight loss support ! click here 

    Although the typical Paleo diet is geared to meat eaters, I asked Jedha if there were a way for vegetarians to be able to make the diet adaptable too. 

    Here's Jedha:



    Weight Loss With A Vegetarian Paleo Diet
    I’m a paleo weight loss coach and if you’ve heard of the paleo diet you may know that it is largely based on meat as your protein source, therefore you may have excluded it as a lifestyle choice for you. I was a vegetarian for over 15 years so I know a thing or two despite the fact I now eat meat again.
    And Judee asked me if I would explain if a vegetarian paleo diet is possible, and what you would eat in order to lose weight. So that’s what I’ll be covering today J
    The paleo diet is a clean and simple diet based on eating good quality protein sources, lots of fresh vegetables, some fruit, nuts and seeds, and good quality fats. It goes one step further than gluten free and cuts out all grains and grain products, all beans and legumes, junk food and processed foods, sugar, and dairy (for some).
    Making The Paleo Diet Vegetarian
    In paleo terms a vegetarian paleo diet is not considered optimal because of the need to include beans and legumes and the fact that it’s difficult to get enough good quality protein, but I believe it is still possible to modify the diet and get results with weight loss.
    Step one is to cut out all grains and grain products, processed foods, junk foods, and excess sugars. When you are trying to lose weight one of the key objectives is to normalize you blood sugar levels. Most processed foods, junk foods and sugars are the obvious contributors. But grains and grain products like rice turn to sugar once they hit the blood stream as well. So for weight loss purposes they are best left out all together.
    Eating loads of fruits and vegetables is obviously not going to be an issue for a vegetarian but you want to minimize starchy vegetables like potatoes, yams, and sweet potatoes due to their high GI and sugar factor. You also want to limit your fruit intake to one piece a day.
    The next step is you need to include lots of protein into your meals. This is one area vegetarians need to address regardless of weight loss because if you are just eating vegetables, then you are consuming way too many carbohydrates. This can affect your health in many areas so you absolutely need the balance.

    ·   Eggs: will be a staple source of protein and should be used the most.
    ·   Dairy: Because many people find dairy can slow down weight loss, I’d cut it out for the most part but I would recommend eating cottage cheese because it is an excellent source of protein for vegetarians.
    ·   Beans and legumes: cooked and prepared very well. These contain some protein but also carbs as well so choose the higher protein ones like adzuki, garbanzo, and kidney beans or some lentils.
    ·   Soy products: organic, non-GMO, fermented forms of tofu (the firm is better), tempeh or natto. Soy products are not considered optimal but for vegetarians they need to be included.
    ·   Supplements: A good quality protein supplement will often need to be includedin order to meet your overall protein requirements.
    ·   Nuts and seeds: a good handful a day.

    The key is to rotate your protein sources on an everyday basis for best results.

    Next will be good quality fat sources. Despite popular belief, fat does not make you fat. You need fats for your brain and many other bodily functions. Fat also makes you feel fuller and is a great addition to any vegetarian diet.
    You need to include avocadoes, eat olive and flaxseed oil dressings, coconut oil, sesame oil, macadamia or pecan oil, good quality butter or ghee, some healthy homemade mayonnaise, and nuts and seeds. Cut out all the vegetable oils such as soy, canola, grape seed and so forth as many of them are hydrogenated and processed.
    So What Might A Day On Your Plate Look Like?
    Breakfast: A huge mixed vegetable omelet drizzled with light olive oil
    Lunch: Some adzuki bean patties and salad, topped with cottage cheese and mayonnaise
    Dinner: A tofu egg bake with vegetables or a lentil and nut loaf made with egg and served with steamed vegetables and guacamole.
    Snacks
    ·         One piece of fruit
    ·         A protein shake smoothie made with your protein supplement and some mixed berries or banana
    ·         A handful of nuts
    ·         Vegetable egg muffins
    ·         Vegetable sticks and guacamole
    ·         A bean patty topped with cottage cheese
    You can see how all the meals will be a combination of protein, vegetables, and a small amount of good quality fats.
    So I hope that’s helped you see how you can change the paleo diet to suit the vegetarian lifestyle. And the tips I’ve given you here will not only help you lose weight but they will improve your vegetarian diet overall.
