Only 170 recipes to go! Since I’m a little behind my goal is to be at 200 recipes complete by September 1st and 300 down by November 1st. These seem like lofty but doable goals. Here’s the latest crop of recipes I tried.
181. Spicy Avocado Egg White Salad
Notes: I mixed half an avocado, mustard, sriracha, with egg whites and served over toasted Ezekiel bread.
182. Broiled Orange Blossom Grapefruit
Notes: I love orange blossom water and the sweet floral fragrance it adds. I used stevia instead of sugar with this recipe.
183. Apple Jicama Slaw
Notes: I don’t like traditional slaw because I’m not a big mayo fan but this one was lighter and the apple and jicama added some extra crunch.
184. Squash Blossom and Veggie Scramble
Notes: I have a weakness for farmer’s markets and the squash blossoms looked so good. I sautéed them in coconut oil with eggs, mushrooms, and kale.
185. Catfish with Blueberry Balsamic Sauce
Notes: The original recipe calls for salmon. I used catfish (because that’s what I had in my freezer) and it was delicious.
186. Corn and Barley Chile Rellenos
Notes: I used almond cheese for this one. This was good but has quite a few steps.
187. Orange Blossom Salad
Notes: This cookbook is from Weight Watchers. I have used other Weight Watcher cookbooks in the past and have really enjoyed them. They’re accessible even if you aren’t doing the program.
188. Endive Boats
Notes: I used ground meatless for the “chicken salad”.
189. Mini Blackberry Almond Tarts
Notes: These were yummy. You need to make them for a party though or take them to the office. They go soggy after a day or two.
190. Great Green Monster Smoothie
Source: Aim True
Notes: I’m finding so many green juice recipes that I am loving!
191. Shrimp Tequila Lime Tacos
Notes: You could serve this over rice or in a stir fry too. I dished this into low carb whole wheat tortillas.
192. Citrus 1
Notes: This was too spicy and a bit acidy for me to want on a regular basis.
193. Greens 5
Notes: The fennel adds a subtle anise flavor to this juice. I added some natural flavored protein powder to make this a meal.
194. Cheeseburger Quesadilla
Source: Real Simple
Notes: I used ground meatless and soy cheese to make this meal vegan.
195. Shrimp Fried Broccoli Rice
Notes: I riced a head of broccoli and cooked it in coconut oil with and then fried an egg and added cooked shrimp and coconut aminos.
