Topic: RE: Instant Pot Recipes

Potheads. LOL. THANKS for the link! I don't have one yet, but my mom just got one, so I can pass along recipes to her until I invest in one of them. I hear they are great.

Topic: Chia Seed Breakfast Protein Pudding

This is NOT low calorie, but I try to make breakfast my highest calorie meal so it's been working well for me!

The night before-

1 Scoop Grass Feed Organic Whey protein powder

2 TBSP dehydrated peanut butter powder

2 TBSP Chia Seeds

4 oz (or half a can/carton) RTD protein shake

Mix the powders and seeds with a fork, then add in just a little of the RTD protein liquid and mix/kneed with the fork to form a paste (this helps get all the powders wet) then continue to add the rest of the liquid into the mixture as you keep stirring/combining the mixture. Place this in the refrigerator (you don't need to cover it) and the next morning you'll have a lovely pudding.

The calorie/macro count will vary depending on the RTD protein you use. I like to use chocolate flavors with the peanut butter but I've used it with banana and strawberry and it's fine. The macros below are based on using half a can of Pure Protein Frosty Chocolate Shake

That's pretty long. I've done them for 12 minutes w/ natural release for medium-sized and thought that was even a little much. Next time, I'm going to try 10 and see how it goes. :)

Topic: Low Carb Real Good Pizza Knockoff

If you have heard about or tried Real Good Pizza, here is a version you can make at home. I modified a recipe I found on KetoConnect to remove some of the fat so it is low carb and low fat:

10 ounces of left over rotisserie or roasted chicken (fat and skin removed)

1 ounce of Parmesan cheese

1 whole egg or 1/4 cup of eggbeaters

Preheat oven to 500 degrees.

Put the chicken and parm in a food processor and pulse until finely pureed.

Add the egg (eggbeaters) and stir well.

Place the mixture on a baking sheet (spray with non-stick cooking spray) and form into a round or square flat disc (1/4 inch thickness seems to work well).

Bake in oven for about 12 minutes.

Remove from oven and add your toppings: I used onions, mushrooms, 4 Tbsp of homemade pizza sauce, and 2 ounces of low fat mozzarella.

Bake again for 10-12 minutes (depending on the amount and type of toppings you have). Enjoy.

I cut mine in 4 pieces and had one piece as a meal.
