I used to do Body for Life and one of my favorite meals was Cool Taco Salad. Could this be a FHM recipes too?
1/2 lb lean ground beef 1 tablespoon water 2 teaspoons taco seasoning mix, divided 2 whole wheat pita bread 2 tablespoons reduced-fat cream cheese, at room temperature 2 tablespoons nonfat sour cream 2 tablespoons salsa 1 cup lettuce 1 tomato, diced 1/4 cup reduced-fat cheddar cheese, shredded
1 Preheat oven to 400°F.
2 In a medium skillet, brown ground beef over medium heat until no longer pink. Drain off excess fat. Add water and 1 tsp taco seasoning to the beef and simmer for 3 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside to cool slightly.
3 Cut each pita into 8 wedges and place on baking sheet. Bake for about 7 minutes or until lightly browned.
4 While the beef is cooling, combine the remaining taco seasoning, cream cheese, sour cream and salsa in a small bowl. Mix well. Divide and spread this mixture evenly on 2 small plates.
5 Spoon a portion of the beef over the sour cream mixture, and top each with half the lettuce, tomato and cheddar cheese.
6 Place 8 baked pita wedges on each plate. Serve and enjoy!
Sounds good. since i'm trying to avoid carbs as much as i can right now, I would shred lots of lettuce and place the ingredients on top and then mix; i suppose that's more for presentation purposes. thanks for the post.
We have always made a taco salad growing up. It had a can of chili- but can I use the FP Chili or S chili from the book, I normally use ground turkey- then add some taco seasoning to it, to thicken it up. The tons of lettuce, cheese, avocado, olives, a small bit of tomatoes and then a little thousand island dressing. When we were little we used to put Doritos in it, but I was thinking a pita with some nutritional yeast, cut up and toasted in the oven to make chips. Would this work?

steffanie3: daisymae27 Welcome There isn't a set number, in an S meal you are to eat until satisfied, not stuffed but satisfied. You can have up to a 1/3 of a batch of Skinny Chocolate a day is the only fat guideline I can think of off the top of my head.

steffanie3: You do want to be respectful of things like heavy cream with lots of calories and not as "pure" of fat as coconut oil Does that help?
Feb 9, 2015 22:10:45 GMT -5
daisymae27: Yes, that does help. I have been putting coconut oil with a little THM sweetener in my coffee and then blending it in the blender. It's really good! I guess After years of diets that require me to count fats, I'm afraid I might overdo it.

dynamo: So, I remember reading somewhere that 2 light rye wasa crackers can be used in a FP, but the nutritional info says that 2 crackers is 11 net carbs.. isn't the limit 10 net carbs for FP? Does anyone have an explanation for this? TIA! : )

steffanie3: Yes two light rye Wasa for FP, one in S, or four in E. Rye is very gentle on blood sugar and they are super low cal

htebe: is there a substitute for oolong tea? seems I have everything but

stacylynn: trimhealthygma4him - what is overwhelming to you? Maybe we can help you!
Feb 16, 2015 10:27:04 GMT -5
stacylynn: htebe - I have subbed green tea for oolong before. They aren't a perfect switch, but I believe they are close enough to sub for one another. What do the rest of you think?
Feb 16, 2015 10:30:58 GMT -5
steffanie3: I agree Green tea can be subbed in Earth Milk so I took that as they were similar. I personally like all kinds of teas and drink both at different times. Many types have their own benefits, I would use what you have for now

kari1052: does anyone have a package of not naughty rice or pasta they wouldn't mind selling. I want to try it before investing in a case of it in case I hate it.
Feb 22, 2015 11:41:28 GMT -5
steffanie3: kari1052 it wouldn't be the same brand, but Swanson's Vitamins sells individual bags of konjac noodles, Miracle noodle brand. Although I prefer THM's (and THM's are cheaper even with shipping) you could get the basic konjac noodle idea that way

perla: Do any of you still eat any of the RAW recipes from Serene's previous cookbook? I would like to be able to implement the "Sun-dried tomatoe spinach pasta" and the "Classic Green Bean Salad" recipes. Are those still within the THM boundries?
