Cool sounds yummy! but I don't believe the carb or fiber count.

Hudson's Baked Tilapia with Dill Sauce
SUBMITTED BY: KHudson3


PHOTO BY: LynnInHK "Baked tilapia seasoned with Cajun and citrus served with a creamy sauce of fresh dill and lemon."
Original recipe yield: 4 servings

PREP TIME 10 Min
COOK TIME 20 Min
READY IN 30 Min
US METRIC



INGREDIENTS
4 (4 ounce) fillets tilapia
1 pinch salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning, or to taste
1 lemon, thinly sliced
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
DIRECTIONS
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
Season the tilapia fillets with salt, pepper and Cajun seasoning on both sides. Arrange the seasoned fillets in a single layer in the baking dish. Place a layer of lemon slices over the fish fillets. I usually use about 2 slices on each piece so that it covers most of the surface of the fish.
Bake uncovered for 15 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until fish flakes easily with a fork.
While the fish is baking, mix together the mayonnaise, sour cream, garlic powder, lemon juice and dill in a small bowl. Serve with tilapia.

-= Ingredients =-
1/2 cup Egg Substitute

Place the cottage cheese in a tea strainer and allow it to drain excess liquid.
Cut a tortilla in half and place each half on a plate.
Blend the egg substitute with the soy protein then add in the cottage cheese.
Scramble this in a sprayed pan until it starts to set. Add in the crumbled bacon and stir in the parsley.

When the eggs have set place 1/2 of the mixture on each tortilla. Placing it slightly to one side of center makes the next step easier.

Put a spoonful of salsa on top of the eggs then roll the tortilla into a cone shape. Put the rest of the salsa on the top as a garnish. Sprinkle with more cilantro (or green onion) if you wish.

Serve immediately.

I hadta bump this thread up in hopes someone would have more recipes to share. I'm gonna make this one--thanks Jo! I also see a coupla others I'm gonna try.

I forgot about this one till I was messin' around, reading past threads. I don't remember if we have a low calorie thread or not, but I think we have a Weight Watcher recipe one. Do you guys think it would be easier to have a sticky titled RECIPES, then have the different threads under there? Just a suggestion. What do you think--good idea, bad idea--no idea??
Hugs,
LS

Arrow fudge

Fudge...UNPUDGED!
Hungry Girl has done it again. Armed with nothing but pumpkin, some brownie mix and a VERY lowfat PB, she’s whipped up a version of chocolate peanut butter fudge that's so low in calories and fat, it'll make you cry tears of joy. Here's the secret recipe...



Ingredients:

2 cups canned pure pumpkin

1 box Betty Crocker Fudge Brownies Mix (the 18.3-oz. Family Size box)

2 tbsp. Better ‘n Peanut Butter, room temperature



Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine pumpkin with the brownie mix in a large bowl; stir until smooth (do not add anything else). Spray a small baking pan (6" X 6" or 8" X 4" work best - no larger!) with nonstick cooking spray and pour in the mixture. Spoon 2 tbsp. of Better ‘n Peanut Butter (room temperature) on top and use a knife to swirl peanut butter around. Cook for approximately 35 minutes. The batter will remain very thick and fudgy, and it should look undercooked. Remove from oven. Cover with aluminum foil and let cool in fridge for a couple of hours. Cut into 36 squares and serve.



Serving Size: 1 piece (approx. 1.3 oz.)

Calories: 63

Fat: 1g

Sodium: 56mg

Carbs: 13.5g

Fiber: 1g

Sugars: 9g

Protein: 1g

Arrow this sounds so yummy!

Cousin Cosmo's Greek Chicken
Submitted By: Orisha
Excellent for a quick weeknight dinner or a taste-pleasing entree for guests, these braised chicken breasts are stuffed with a mixture of feta, lemon juice, and oregano, and cooked with fresh spinach and ripe tomatoes.



Prep Time: 20 Minutes
Cook Time: 20 Minutes
Ready In: 40 Minutes
Yields: 6 servings
INGREDIENTS
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, divided
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 pound feta cheese, crumbled
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon dried oregano
6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 cups water
1 cube chicken bouillon, crumbled
2 cups loosely packed torn fresh spinach leaves
1 ripe tomato, chopped

DIRECTIONS
On large plate, combine 1 tablespoon flour, salt, and pepper. Set aside. In a small bowl, combine cheese, lemon juice, and oregano. Set aside.
With a meat mallet, pound each chicken breast to 1/2 inch thickness. Spread cheese mixture on each chicken breast, leaving 1/2 inch border. Fold chicken breasts in half; secure each with toothpick. Coat chicken breasts with flour mixture.
In large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Cook chicken breasts for 1 to 2 minutes on each side, until golden. In a small bowl, whisk together 1 1/2 cups water, chicken bouillon cube, and remaining flour; pour over chicken breasts in pan. Add spinach and tomato to skillet, and bring to boil. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink inside. Discard toothpicks before serving.

Smile tomato cabbage soup in less than 10 minutes!

Plum Tomato Cabbage Soup


(1/5th recipe: 36 calories/ 0g fat/ 480mg sodium/ 7.5g carbs/ 1.5g fiber/ 5g sugars/ 1.5g protein = 0 Points!)



With our optional ingredients, you can customize this soup to satisfy your taste buds. Make it hot ‘n sweet (with SPLENDA & FRANK'S RedHot), garlicky (TABASCO Garlic and/or garlic salt), or sweet ‘n mild (SPLENDA). Any way you serve this soup, it’s zero Points per serving!






Ingredients:

6 plum tomatoes; chopped

4 cups fat-free vegetable broth

2 cups chopped green cabbage

*Optional ingredients: salt, pepper, SPLENDA, FRANK'S RedHot, TABASCO Pepper Sauce (Garlic or original), garlic salt



Directions:

In a large pot sprayed with nonstick spray, place chopped tomatoes along with any juice and seeds. Cook over medium heat for 2 – 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add broth and cabbage, and raise heat to high. Once soup reaches a boil, reduce heat to low and cover. Allow soup to simmer for 5 minutes. Season to taste with salt, pepper, and any of the other optional ingredients. Enjoy! Makes 5 generous 1-cup servings.



Be creative… Adding an ounce of raisins or a package of (drained, rinsed, & cut) Tofu Shirataki noodles to the recipe only bumps it up to 1 Point! Mmmmmm…

1/5th recipe with raisins: 53 calories/ 0g fat/ 480mg sodium/ 12g carbs/ 2g fiber/ 8g sugars/ 1.75g protein = 1 Point



1/5th recipe with noodles: 44 calories/ 0.4g fat/ 485mg sodium/ 9g carbs/ 3g fiber/ 5g sugars/ 2g protein = 1 Point

Cool Chicken Cordon Blue, low carb

Chicken Cordon Blue

4 chicken breasts, boneless, skinless, about 2 pounds

4 pats of butter, salted, about 2 T

Butterfly chicken and flatten between plastic wrap and use side of hammer,
position the slick side of chicken inside (THE RUFF SIDE HOLDS ONTO THE CRACKERS BETTER SO IT SHOULD WIND UP ON THE OUTSIDE..SORRY IF THAT SEEMS TOO PICKY!) or use finely chopped pecans for the lower carb dieters... then coat with some dijon then a slice of ham and a slice of cheese. cover the cheese with basil and roll into an individual serving. Gently roll the chicken into the egg then cracker crumbs.,,,(or pecans).
Do this 4 times.
Place each chicken seam side down on a pam coated glass dish. Sprinkle remaining crackers over top insuring that all of the chicken is covered with crumbs.
Put one pat of butter on top of each chicken.

Bake 350 degrees in a preheated oven for 30 minutes
serves 4 large servings!

I served this with zuchinni and yellow squash sauted in butter and basil and tomatoes and garlic and some onions, peppers and celery( the trinity here in the south).
Husband raved about it!

Smile from Yo Yo girl

the BEST muffin recipe EVER...

you need:
1 egg
1/4 C flax meal
1/4 tsp baking powder
sweeten to taste... I use splenda.. maybe 1/4 C??
2 tbsp butter already melted

mix up the first four ingredients then add in the butter. Microwave for 1 minute and VIOLA!! a perfect flax muffin.

you'll figure the sugar/sweetener out pretty quick once you make one. And the best part is that it has a just 1g net carb. Flax is awesome for you. Pleases every corner of the nutrition world i think.
