SHAMROCK SHAKE-Belly Buster version






SHAMROCK SHAKE ...

just like at McDonalds but with less calories and carbs!

I will post 3 versions for those of you that don't like mint and those of you that like chocolate mint!



Version 1: McDonalds  Mint Shamrock Shake:

1 cup of Almond Milk or Lite Soy Milk
1 packet of Vanilla Creme pudding protein powder (or 1 scoop of vanilla, other brands)
1/2 packet B&A Lime Gelatin (or 1/3 packet sugar-free store bought)
1 drop Watkins peppermint flavoring 
1/3 dropper of Peppermint Stevia (you can get it on our site if you can't find it locally)
1 cup ice
Cool Whip or Redi-Whip

Dilute Lime Gelatin in 1/3 cup hot water. Blend in blender with milk and pudding mix, then add flavoring and sweetener. Next add ice and chop until you have desired thickness. Top with Cool Whip or RediWhip.

VERSION 2:Chocolate Mint Shamrock Shake

 Just like above except use 1/2 Mint Cocoa Protein Pkt and  1 Vanilla Creme Pudding instead of the Lime Jello. Still use the Peppermint and Sweetener and then swirl Walden Farm Chocolate Sauce in it before topping with whipped cream.

VERSION 3 (my favorite): Tropical Shamrock Shake

Just like above except only use the Vamilla Creme Pudding and Lime Jello, no mint flavoring.  Add 1/3 cup crushed pineapple to the blender and if you want more green, add green food coloring...just a couple of drops.  You can add clear stevia if you need it sweeter. Delish!  The luck of the Irish to ya!

Do you celebrate Valentine’s Day by eating chocolate?  The real stuff with sugar?  You can make your own low carb delights--doesn’t have to be an unhealthy, glucose-spiking indulgence! You are sure to fall in love with these 21 great low carb Valentine’s dessert recipes, courtesy of other blogs. NOTE: For the Belly Buster Diet, I would not use Swerve as it has 5 grams of Erithytol and can make you have bloating and gas, especially if you have IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome.)

Lee's Easy Shrimp (or Fish or Lobster) Bisque

1 jar Spicy Red Pepper Classico Tomato Sauce
1 medium bag medium -sized frozen shrimp
1/4 to 1/2 cup plain soy milk or skim milk

That's it!  It will taste like a gourmet bisque!  For Fish Chowder, for maintenance clients, add a 1/4 cup of fresh corn or small can, and 2 cod filets and whatever veggies you like: okra, tomatoes, or peas. It is delicious and the creaminess of the milk takes away the acidity.  

You can add a packet of our Clear Tomato Soup to give it more protein to fill you up faster and to give it an extra sweetness.  I never eat the soups plain.  I always add things to them to make a soup to take away the protein taste, but, boy does that extra protein fill you UP!
Asparagus or Zucchini Frittata Recipe 
2 teaspoons Canola oil
1/2 small onion, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 pound asparagus, tough ends snapped
off, spears cut diagonally into 1-inch lengths
OR 1/2 cup peeled and diced zucchini
4 large eggs, lightly beaten (Eggbeaters)
1 cup shredded Gruyere or Swiss cheese


Heat oil into a 10-inch oven-proof frying pan over medium high heat. Add onions and salt and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are softened, about 3 minutes. Add asparagus, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook, covered, until the asparagus are barely tender, 6 to 8 minutes. Pour in eggs and cook until almost set, but still runny on top, about 2 minutes. While cooking, pre-heat oven broiler.

Sprinkle cheese over eggs and put in oven to broil until cheese is melted and browned, about 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from oven with oven mitts and slide frittata onto a serving plate. Cut into wedges.



Serves 4. And while you are eating, check out Belly Busters at http://www.bestdietsource.com/ !

Blueberries and a Punch Bowl Trifle for the Fourth of July


July is Blueberry Month     
                                             
sponsored by http://www.bellybusterdiet.com/

Blueberries have long been recognized as the fruit with the most antioxidants. The United States Department of Agriculture on May 8th, 1999, proclaimed July to be National Blueberry Month. Blueberries are grown in 35 states, with the United States producing over 90% of the worlds supply.
One of the easiest fruits to prepare and serve, these tasty berries offer as much as four times as many health-giving antioxidants than other fruits and veggies. Because blueberries have few natural pests, (other than birds), pesticides are generally unnecessary when growing them. A powerhouse among fruits, blueberries rich antioxidants are valued for their cancer and heart disease fighting properties. They are also shown to help improve memory, balance, and coordination.

Adding fresh summer blueberries are a great way to give a little health punch to some of your favorite dishes. Try them in yoghurt, pancakes, muffins, on your salad, over ice cream and even blueberry salsa.
We invite you to enjoy a few of our tasty blueberry recipes below and tell us the ways you like to eat these healthy berry bites.

Care Solutions
* Don’t wash berries until just before using to prevent berries from becoming mushy.
* Chill berries soon after picking to increase shelf life. If refrigerated, fresh-picked blueberries will keep 10 to 14 days.
* Freeze berries in freezer containers without washing to keep the skins from toughening.
Fun Facts
* The blueberry is the second most popular berry in the U.S. The strawberry is number one. Over 200 million pounds of blueberries are grown commercially each year.
* Blueberries contain significant quantities of both antibacterial and antiviral compounds, and have a reputation of fighting infections. They may also help protect against heart disease.
* The blueberry muffin is the official muffin of Minnesota.
* Blueberry Jelly Bellies were created especially for former president Ronald Reagan.
* The blueberry is the official state fruit of New Jersey, which also raises the most cultivated fresh blueberries in the United States.

Punch Bowl Cake (Great for July 4th because of it's Patriotic Look!)
2 pkg of pudding mix
2 pkgs of strawberry jello mix
2 cups of blueberries
2 cups of strawberries
1 angel food cake (sugar-free)
1 lg. Cool Whip



Make up the pudding mixes and jellos according to directions and then layer between crumbled cake. I put pudding, then cake, then a layer of jello with the stawberries in it, then cakem then pudding tieh the blueberries on top, etc. In a glass trifle bowl, this looks so pretty! For an American holiday, very patriotic on your table. Great for diabetics and for those on a diet!

Zucchini Crust Pizza


zucchini-crust-pizza.jpg
Pizza is one of those foods that is notoriously difficult to eat when you have diabetes.  But you can make your own crust with either zucchini or cauliflower, both of which are very low in carbs, and your sugar will be fine! If you use zucchini, pat it dry with a paper towel or put it under the broiler for a few minutes to get some of the liquid off of it because it may be soggy if you don't.

Olive oil and flour for the pan
2 cups (packed) grated zucchini
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup grated mozzarella
1/2 cup grated parmesan
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
2 tablespoons olive oil

Preheat oven to 400 F. Drizzle a little olive oil in a 10" pie pan and coat lightly with flour.
Combine the zucchini, eggs, flour, mozzarella, parmesan, basil, and 1 tablespoon olive oil in a bowl and mix well. Spread into the pie pan and bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until golden brown. About halfway through the baking, brush with the remaining olive oil. Remove from oven. When it has cooled for about 10 minutes, use a spatula to loosen the crust from the pan so it won't break later.
Top with your favorite pizza items and bake at 400 F until heated through.
