WW KMU Low Carb Veggie style

Yea, I know, I am on WW, but I also eat low carb and mostly vegetarian, but I don’t like onions and peppers, aaauuuggghhh!

So, hmmm, I have a squash from a neighbor, no idea what kind, I have canned tomatoes and some mushrooms???  And, oh , hey, Veggie Meatballs……..(light bulb!)

I pull out the can of tomatoes, I blend about 3/4 of can with some garlic, I put it in a pan and add the unblended tomatoes.  I add the veggie meatballs (3 pts for 3), while simmering I add some mushrooms.

Then I pulled out the veggie spiralizer, I cut off the neck of the squash (narrow part) and made a LOT of noodles!

I put those in a pan with some garlic and cook those up, then after a few minutes I added the veggie marinara sauce.  BOHYAH!  Huge plate of food, very low carbs and only 3pts!

You gotta think out of the box, can, bag, and yummy things happen!

KMU – Corn Bread muffins with a twist..

So as you know, I make tweaks to recipes so I can eat as vegetarian and low WW points as possible, while using items I have in the kitchen at that moment….so without further ado….

Corn Muffins with Corn and Black Beans & Corn Muffins with Pineapple….Yeah es good!

  • 1 Cup flour = my current flour mix includes whole wheat as the base, 50-60%, then almond flour, soy flour, Flax Seed flour…..yummy and less carby
  • 3/4 Cup corn meal
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • couple shakes of sugar or splenda, maybe 1/8 of a teaspoon at most
  • salt = couple grinds (to much salt is not good for you)
  •  1 blended apple (peel and all) – instead of butter
  • 2 egg –
  • 3/4 cup of juice from can of corn + 1/4 unsweetened almond milk –
  • 1 can of corn

Halve the mixture and add 1/2 can black beans to one half and 1/2 can crushed pineapple to other half.

Pour in to muffin tin ( I use silicon cup liners) and bake at 350 for 25 min

2 WW pts per muffin!  I am telling you the corn and pineapple is YUMMY!

 

 

So I had some strawberries in the freezer

I pulled them out to cook with later this week, but when I went in fridge I noticed “juice” at the bottom of the bag….then light bulb…..I poured the juice in my tea and it was tasty!

So I mushed them up and sieved out the seeds and know I have ZERO point sweetener for my tea!   Plus all the goodness of the strawberries with no additives!  SWEET!

KMU – chicken pot pie(s) …….

so we had a bbq over the weekend, ended up with left over chicken carcass (eewwwhhh), but it is great for chicken broth.

So I bought some netting type bags for veggies for my mom, I kept a few, I have found out that these are great to put the chicken and anything else for the broth in, then set in the pot, lets out the juices, keeps in the bones, seeds, peels, ect. (upcycling 🙂

So while the broth was going (to which I had added veggies that weren’t gonna last much longer, carrots (purple and white), clove of garlic, orange pepper ect., I pulled out some of my mom’s prepper food , the peas and mashed potatoes.

After broth was done, pulled about a cup of meat off the bones, then I added good veggies, carrots, small potatoes, some of those dyhd peas, and the mashed potatoes and let them simmer.  Used the potatoes instead of flour to thicken the soup and give it some flavor.

I then pulled out my refriged dough, I could make some, but….I be lazy today,  plus the points are the same.  I poured the mix of chicken pot pie in to small containers, then cut the dough to fit over the mix and baked.  Yummers.  Plus the containers have lids so I can freeze the others to eat later, about 6 pts each but worth it!

 

So much fruit/so little time KMU (kitchen mash-up)

So what think you of my KMU??

So any whodles….we buy fruit, I also get fruit from my friend and sometimes from neighbors.  And you all know how I HATE wasting food!

So I had grapefruit from my friends moms tree, plus some fruit going soft, peach, pear, nectarine.  Hmmm, first I cut them all up for a fruit salad, hmmm, NOPE, the flavors did not play well together!

So, shit! What now…..ok, I just put a pan on the stove, added the fruit, then added a banana (remember, use natures thickner, NOT pectin, as it will just sugar it all up!) and mashed it all together, then since it was on tropical side, I added ginger, cinnamon, Vanilla and Lemon extract, and BOOM, yummy jam, that is….0 ZERO WW points also.

Nice win, no sugar, no wasted fruit, low cost and healthy jam!  Try it on a waffle with a small amount of your favorite ice cream, low pt , healthy dessert.  Your welcome 🙂

I get a few cherries, some banana, and top it with the Chocolate hummus, great for that chocoloate craving without using all your points.
