yorp127:  I love the noodles!! You do keep them in the fridge and then wash them or boil them quickly to get even more of the flavor out. 

For me I’ve found that I don’t like it as a pasta substitue and like it more with asian flavors.

I’m a big fan of skinnytaste.com  Great recipes there 

My default is this recipe: 

  • cut up chicken breast (I get the HUGE ones from Sams and one is enough for the three of us)
  • 1 bag frozen vegetables (green beans, broccoli, brussel sprouts, whatever)
  • 2 potatoes cut into cubes

Throw all of the above into a bag.  Add 2 tbs olive oil, salt, and whatever seasonings you like (a combo of garlic, three onion rub from pampered chef, and balsamic vinegar is my fav)

Bake 1/2 hour at 425 on a cookie sheet.

My favorite low-cal meals these days is a salad with spinach, strawberries, a tiny sprinkle of slivered almonds, and some grilled chicken. I feel pretty fancy with that, but most of meals follow the same template:

1) hefty serving of lean protein (usually chicken or egg whites but sometimes tilapia or shrimp)

2) small serving of slow-digesting carbs (sweet potato, steel cut oats, ezekiel bread)

3) serving of vegetables (asparagus season!)

I’m a huge fan of the Elana’s Pantry blog. Lots of paleo recipes and everything you could ever want to know about baking with almond and coconut flours. 

I enjoyed making this Thai Veggie soup the other day:

And a couple of favorites are:

Chipotle Orange Chicken:

And because everyone is mentioning alternative noodles, here is her primer on low carb swaps for noodles:

My SO mentioned a month or so ago that he wishes he had more fish in his diet. He didn’t mean it as a dig towards me but, well, I do all the cooking and I had never cooked fish before. I’m not a big fan of fish either.

So, I’ve been trying to find fish recipes that we’d both like. I made this a couple of weeks ago:

http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/giada-de-laurentiis/mediterranean-halibut-sandwiches-recipe.html

I made it with Mahi Mahi instead of halibut because mahi mahi is less expensive, and we had some left over from fish tacos I made the other night (which also turned out really yummy!).

These fish sandwiches were amazing! It only has a little bit of mayo, just enough to hold it together. My SO usually doesn’t like mayo, but he loooved this sandwich. So flavorful and good!

I also made these Buttermilk Faux-Fried Chicken Tenders the other day:

With this buttermilk ranch dipping sauce:

It was very good! Definitely satisfied the craving my SO was having for chicken tenders.
