Here are my favorite lunch and dinner recipes and modifications
We eat dinner around 3 P.M., which serves as our main meal. I usually eat what the rest of the family eats, only modified. For example, if I make meat in a cream sauce with rice or pasta, I’ll take the meat and cream sauce and make myself a side vegetable.
Other substitution ideas are: riced cauliflower (which you can actually get in the frozen food section of many stores now) for rice, mashed cauliflower in place of mashed potates, or zucchini noodles in place of pasta.
While it is very easy to modify meals for just one person, rather than making separate meals for everyone, there are times when it doesn’t work: for example, Bolognese. Tomatoes should be eaten sparingly because they are higher in carbs. In that case, I take some of the hamburger and fry a hamburger patty and serve with bacon and guacamole.
So you get the idea for how you can modify your dinner meals.
Taco in Melted Cheese Shell
Grate 40 grams of cheese. Spread out thinly in a pan or pie tin lined with baking paper. Bake at 400 for approximately 10 minutes. Remove, let cool 5 minutes. While cooling, place a wooden spoon over a large serving bowl. Peel the melted cheese shell off of the baking paper and lay over the wooden spoon so that the shell cools in the shape of a taco shell.
Line the shell with a leaf of lettuce and fill with the usual ingredients.
You can also use large lettuce leaves as shells
Or make it as a salad
Pizza on a baked cheese crust:
120 grams of cheese
1 TB off pizza sauce
Your favorite pizza toppings
Line a pie plate with baking paper.
Sprinkle 90-100 grams of the cheese in a thick circle and bake at 400 until the edges are slightly browned.
Remove from the oven and top with the pizza sauce and toppings. Sprinkle cheese over the top and return to the over and bake until the top is browned.
Slice and eat
Hamburger Bites with Special Sauce
Season your hamburger meat and make small bite-sized patties and fry as usual.
For the special sauce mix
Sugar free ketchup
Dip and eat
Chicken in Bacon Cream Sauce over Zucchini Noodles
In a hot skillet fry cubed bacon until crispy and remove from heat.
1 chicken breast cubed and seasoned (I use salt, pepper, vegeta, garlic seasoning, and basil)
In a separate skillet, brown in 1 TB olive oil (or lard), then add water little by little until fully cooked.
Add 1 cup of cream and bring to just UNDER a boil (don’t boil or the cream may curdle)
Add the bacon and grease and stir in the chicken mixture.
Heat some olive oil in the pan you made the bacon in, add the zucchini noodles and sautee. Once slightly browned, add a bit of water to cook them until tender.
Spoon onto a plate and top with the chicken and bacon cream sauce.
Cauliflower bread takes a little bit of time, but is a great subsitute for buns. I didn’t like it as toast (as the picture above), but I did not taste any cauliflower at all as a hamburger bun.
Here is the recipe I used for Cauliflower Bread
Loaded Cauliflower Bake
Steam 80 grams of cauliflower and grind it up in a food processor.
Once cooled, squeeze small portions of the cauliflower in a cheese cloth to get out as much water as you can.
Cube and season 1/2 chicken breast and sautee in 1 TB of olive oil until tender.
Blend the cauliflower with:
20 grams of sour cream
1/4 cup of cheese (I used Gouda)
1 slice of bacon crumbled
1 green onion chopped
1 TB of butter softened
1/8 tsp of garlic powder
Return cauliflower to your food processor and blend with all ingredients except chicken.
Fold in the chicken and turn out into a pan and top with grated cheese. Bake at 275 until top is golden brown.
Tuna Salad with Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing
For the salad I used:
1/2 medium tomato
3-4 large green olives
Can of tuna in brine drained
1 TB Mayonnaise
1 TB sour cream
Blue Cheese Dressing
1 TB Mayonnaise
1 TB sour cream
1/2 TB olive oil
15 grams blue cheese cumbled
squirt of lemon juice
