Easy sushi rolls!

image

“Seaweed contains chemicals and acids that may prevent you from developing high cholesterol, which reduces your risk of heart disease and gallstones”

EASY SUSHI ROLL INGREDIENTS
-1/2 Cup Cooked Short Grain Brown Rice
-1 Tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
-1/2 Tsp Truvia
– 1/8 Tsp Salt
– 1 Sheet Nori
– 1 Wholly Guacamole Package (100 calorie pack)
– 4 oz Any Protein (I used Applegate turkey breast)
– Slices of Cucumber and Carrots

This made one roll
Macros: 329 calories, 30g protein, 31g carbs,  10g fat

I sliced the cucumbers (removing the seed part) and Applegate into sticks  and used a julienne peeler for the carrots.

In a bowl, I mixed the apple cider vinegar, Truvia and salt. I heated it in the microwave for 20 seconds. I then mixed it in a glass bowl with 1/2 cup of warm brown rice. I let it sit for about 5-10 mins until the rice was sticky.

I then placed the nori on a bamboo sushi mat (you can use saran wrap) and I added the rice to one half of it.

I added half of the wholly guacamole package to the middle of the rice. (side note these wholly guacamole packages are awesome! I bought them in bulk at Costco (20 per package) and froze them. That way I can use them anytime and never have to worry about them expiring. I use these instead of buying avocados and put them on everything from sandwiches to eggs.)

image

I then placed the cucumbers, Applegate and carrots around the guacamole.

imageUsing the bamboo roller I tightly rolled the sushi! I dipped my fingers in a little water and rubbed the Seaweed side to make it damp and flexible so that it would stick to the roll.

image
I then cut it in half and stacked it and cut it again.

image

image

I used the extra guacamole as a dipping sauce with Tamari. I also paired the leftover Applegate with the sushi so I would have a complete meal with protein.

Multi-grain super rich greek yogurt protein pancakes (No protein powder)

wpid-img_20150428_090754.jpg

” Baking with too much protein powder can lead to a tough and spongy treat. Try using Greek yogurt in place of buttermilk or heavy cream to maintain the texture with the added protein”

MULTI-GRAIN GREEK YOGURT PANCAKE INGREDIENTS
– 1 Packet of Better Oats Raw Pure and Simple Organic Bare Instant Mutligrain Hot Cereal with Flax
(you can also use oat flour, which would be a little more than 1/2 cup-45 grams)
– 1/2 Tsp Truvia
(Half packet, you can omit if your topping is sweet enough)
– 1/2 Tsp Baking powder
– 1/4 Tsp Baking Soda
– 1/8 Tsp Salt
– 1/2 Cup Fage Total Zero Greek Yogurt (113 grams)
– 1 Tbsp Silk Almond Milk, Unsweetened Vanilla
(15 grams)
– 3 Tbsp Egg Whites (46 grams)
– 1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract

This made 3 pancakes
Macros with Multigrain cereal (pancakes alone) :  252 calories , 3.2 fat ,  32.5 carbs , 22.6 protein
Macros with Oat Flour : 261 calories, 3.0 fat,  36.1 carbs , 22.2 protein
Macros with Multi-grain cereal with chocolate peanut butter topping :308 calories, 5 fat, 37 carbs 29 protein

I rarely buy oat flour, any nut flour, brown rice flour, coconut flour or any other unique flour because I found out you can make flour by just grinding it in a Spice and Coffee Grinder ! (You could use a blender but it doesn’t get as fine as a spice grinder) This has saved me so much money and has changed my life!
wpid-20150322_101831.jpg wpid-20150322_101928.jpg

Mix all the dry ingredients together ( Flour, truvia, baking powder, baking soda, salt)

In a separate bowl mix the wet ingredients ( Greek yogurt, almond milk, egg whites, vanilla extract)
wpid-20150428_080504.jpg

Mix both the dry and wet together ( Don’t over mix, just enough so its mixed well. The batter will be very thick)

I’m pretty addicted to them. I’ve at them every morning for the past three weeks and I’ve lost weight hahaha. I’ve mixed up my toppings and for a whole week I topped it with some sort of crumbled cookie (oreos, girl scout cookies, reeses egg, chocolate chips…No shame) .

10 Minute Garlic & Herb Oatmeal Butter Biscuit

image

“CLA in grass fed beef is three to five times higher than those found in grain fed beef. One study showed that CLA reduces body fat while preserving muscle tissue, and may also increase your metabolic rate.”

GARLIC & HERB OATMEAL BUTTER BISCUIT INGREDIENTS
– 2 Tbsp (28 grams) 2% Greek Yogurt

– 1 Tbsp (15 grams) Egg White
– 1 Tsp (5 grams)  Kerrygold Garlic and Herb Butter Grass-Fed (Melted in microwave)
– 1/4  Cup (20 grams) Oat Flour
– 1.5 Tsp Truvia
– 1/4 Tsp Baking Powder
– 1/8 Tsp Baking Soda
– 1/8 Tsp Salt

This made one bun (Top + Bottom)

Macros per bun (top + bottom):137 Calories, 5.4 g fat, 14.6 g carbs 7.5 g protein

Macros per sandwich (whole egg) : 277 Calories, 12g fat, 17 g carbs, 26 g protein (you can lower the fat/ calories using egg whites)

I made these using a  Non-Stick Original Muffin Top Pan. Probably the best investment ever because you can make so many things like thick cookies, pancakes, low carb bread buns, biscuits, mini pies.. Ect.

Mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately. Mix together when you’re just about to put into the oven.

I divided the mixture into two circles to make the bottom and top patty. The batter will be thick so you’ll have to spread it around the pan. (Don’t worry it will even out in the oven) In the other circle I cracked one egg and in the other I used 2oz of Applegate Oven roasted chicken breast. I placed it into a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees for 10 mins.

You can also make it into batches by tripling the recipe and have them for the rest of the week!

Low Carb Pizza Chicken Rolls

wpid-picsart_1408293057252.jpg

 

“Psyllium is the husk of the seed of the Plantago and is a top herb used in weight control and for general intestinal health. It contains a spongy fiber that reduces appetite, improves digestion and cleanses the system, making it an excellent choice for healthy dieting. Psyllium husk can be added to your diet as a natural thickening agent. Try adding a little psyllium husk to thicken soups, creams and sauces.”

 

LOW CARB PIZZA CHICKEN ROLL INGREDIENTS
– 4 Chicken Breasts
– 1 Head of broccoli (Chopped)
– 1 jar of pizza sauce
– 2 servings of shredded lite mozzarella cheese
– 1 small bag of Sun-dried tomatoes
– 1 Tbsp Psyllium Husk  (Unflavored-nothing added)
Macros per 40z breast : 182 Calories, 2 Fat, 5.3 Carbs, 28.4 Protein (4oz chicken, 1/4 broccoli head, 2 Tbsp sauce, 1/2 serving Cheese, 1/2 serving of sun-dried tomatoes, sprinkle of psyllium husk)

 Mallet chicken breast in saran wrap or a ziplock bag.
Add sauce and sprinkle psyllium husk on top (a little goes a long way, this helps keep the sauce from running out while cooking) Then add all other ingredients.
wpid-20140812_203224.jpg
Roll the chicken and hold it in place using toothpicks (I probably used 5 toothpicks in each chicken) Place the toothpick part facing down. I topped it with more pizza sauce, Parmesan cheese and oregano. Bake @ 350 for 30-45 Mins.
