Buffalo Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Every year I personally revisit the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Protocol just to keep things in check.  Some people think I’m crazy, but having the knowledge and experience that I do, I see things differently.  The way I see it, if I gain 5-7 pounds in a year, why not take care of it when […]

Fresh Quinoa Salad

This salad makes a great, light addition to your meal.  You can either have it on the side, or add your protein to it. Just a little tip about quinoa before I get into this delicious recipe: if it makes you gassy, rinse it for a few minutes before you cook it.  The grains are […]

Healthy Chicken Posole

Did you ever start a project, and then realize months later that you were so caught up with life that you forgot all about it? That happened with this recipe, and as a result I’m sharing a soup recipe just as the weather is starting to change.  Who wants to eat soup when it’s 80 […]

MOM! THE MEATLOAF!

You may be wondering why my title is screaming at you.  Well, whenever I think of meatloaf, I can’t help but think of Will Ferrell in Wedding Crashers.  If you aren’t familiar with this funny scene, here it is.  Warning: there are a few f-bombs in this clip. Now we have the perfect Ideal Protein […]

Low Maintenance Kale Chips

Kale chips are everywhere these days, and for good reason.  They are healthy and taste great.  They’re so good that it’s easy to forget you are eating a vegetable while you are inhaling eating them.  About a year ago, I tried making kale chips for the first time and loved them.  While the recipe was […]

Roasted Kabocha Squash Soup

Did you know that most roasted squash soups have cream in them?  If you ask me, that’s a total waste of fat and calories.  I’m about to share with you a fabulous soup that doesn’t need the cream.  I would bet anyone who tries this won’t miss the dairy one bit.  Squash is creamy enough […]

Chicken and Vegetable Stir-Fry

If you want to duplicate that silky sauce found in Chinese restaurants, corn starch is the key.  But what if you can’t eat corn starch?  If you’re on Ideal Protein Phases 1, 2, and 3, you can’t.  But I have found a great alternative.  It’s called Konjac Glucomannan Powder and is sold by the awesome […]

Indian-Spiced Roasted Cauliflower

If food can teach us one thing, it’s that looks aren’t everything.  A while back I was lured into buying a beautiful purple cauliflower.  The final product tasted delicious, but visually it was a disaster.   Incidentally my roasted cauliflower recipes often involve some turmeric, and the bright yellow tint of turmeric does not go well […]

Fresh Broccoli and Green Bean Saute

The 4 cups of veggies that are required per day on Ideal Protein are surprisingly a lot of veggies– in a good way.  It’s probably safe to say that most people don’t usually get that many vegetables in a day.  If we know they are so good in so many ways, why not learn to […]

Zucchini Pasta Primavera

What’s your biggest carb craving? Hands down, my favorite carb is pasta.  And I guess potatoes… and bread too.  Oh geez, I know I’m not alone when I admit I love them all.  But I better focus here. Back to the pasta thing… this is why I’m a huge fan of the Miracle Noodle.  There […]
