    Diet Ninjas recipe thread...

    Particularly on down days I come across a lot of recipes I want to try. Then I lose / forget them. So this is a list of my favourite recipes. I'll add comments when I try them!

    In general they'll probably be fairly low carb, low cal (or easily adaptable) and easy / quick to cook....

    From Mark Sissons daily apple
    Breakfast muffins (low carb)

    Cook ½ lb. meat of choice. Nitrate-free bacon or ground pork with some crushed fennel seed works well. Saute ½ cup veggies of choice such as mushrooms, white onion, red bell pepper, spinach or scallions. Mix together with ¼-1/3 cup cheese of choice. Set aside.

    Whisk 5 eggs and ¾ cup heavy cream, and pour into muffin tins. (Use foil cups if desired.) Add meat and veggie blend to each cup of egg mixture.

    Bake at 325 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 minutes or until golden brown.

    These can be stored in the fridge until they are ready to be eaten.

    Low carb choc peanut freezer cakes

    1/2 cup peanut butter (not the junk kind with sugar in)
    1/4 cup coconut oil (unrefined)
    3 tbs cocoa powder (check carbs, go for lowest you can find)
    2 tbs splenda
    1/2 tsp vanilla extract (again check there's no added sugar)

    Blitz in a food processor, pour into square tray/container and allow to set in the freezer. Then chop up and keep in the freezer.

    I also add pistachio nuts and sprinkle coconut on top. Yummy with a cuppa!!!

    Butternut squash soup

    INGREDIENTS

    1 butternut squash, seeds removed, peeled, and cut into large chunks
    1 large yellow onion, chopped
    1 apple, peeled, seeds and core removed
    3 quarts low-sodium chicken broth
    Salt and pepper
    1 tbsp curry powder
    1/2 cup ff sour cream or ff plain yogurt

    The last few times I made this recipe I used sour cream, the next time I will use yogurt. If there is a significant change in taste I will let you know.

    Put the squash, onion, apple, and chicken broth in a large pot and cook for 20 to 30 minutes.

    Puree the soup in batches in a blender and return to the pot.

    Add the salt, pepper, and curry powder and mix in the sour cream or yogurt until thoroughly combined.

    I found the sour cream gets a little clumpy and I have to blend it again once it is added, more for aesthetic reasons really.

    The soup can be served hot or cold, make sure when reheating to not allow the soup to boil.
