Spray a non-stick pan with cooking spray.
When the pan is hot, add chicken, onion, mushrooms, garlic and peppers.
Stir fry.
Meanwhile, steam the cabbage in the microwave for 2-3 minutes.
When the cabbage is done, throw it in the pan and add seasonings.
Add soy sauce and turn heat up to high, stirring constantly so nothing sticks.
When everything is nicely browned and coated, add beansprouts, stirring them in until they are hot (about 1 minute.)

Break out the chopsticks.

(this is based on my serving of 3.3 oz chicken)

When I make this for the family, I remove my portion and stir in some cooked rice noodles for the kids.

Here is a pic of what it looks like:

That looks delicious as does most all of your stuff! Can you come cook for me please?

Default Sweet and Sour Chicken Coleslaw (low carb)

Salad
~ Cooked chicken breast in your serving size, sliced thinly
~ 1 cup shredded cabbage mix

Dressing (1 svg)
~ 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
~ 1 packet of sweetener
~ 1 tbsp diced fresh onion
~ seasoning to taste: salt, black pepper, thyme, crushed chilis, garlic powder

Place all dressing ingredients except seasonings in the bowl of a food processer. Blend well until it purees the onion to a liquid consistency. Add seasonings and blend for a few seconds longer. (Note: the onion makes it a little bit spicy - if you don't like very spicy food leave out the crushed chili)

Use the dressing immediately. It will look like this:



In a large bowl toss dressing and salad ingredients with two forks. Chill for a half hour to let the flavors blend or eat immediately.

Totals, using 5.5 oz chicken, 1 cup of cabbage, and the dressing:
without veggies:
cal: 179 carbs: 4 fat: 2 protein: 36
veggie totals:
cal: 22 carbs: 5 fat: 2 protein: 1

The finished product looks like this:

Default Low Carb BBQ Sauce

This doesn't come out thick like store bought bbq sauce - I'm still trying to concoct something like that. This recipe would make nice pulled chicken, pork or beef. It`s based on a higher carb version that I generally make.

1.5 cups of very strong coffee
2 tbsp diced raw onion
1 clove of garlic
1 tsp yellow mustard
3 tbsb tomato paste
1 tbsp cider vinegar
2 packets of sweetener
dash of cloves
salt to taste
spicy paprika
1 tsp liquid smoke
1/4 cup diet Coke

Put all ingredients in the bowl of a food processer and puree until the contents are liquid.

To make a BBQ flavored pulled chicken, you can put chicken breasts in the crock pot and pour this sauce in. Cook for 8-9 hours until chicken is tender and falling apart. Remove chicken, shred with two forks and return to cooking liquid.

I don't have any pics, but I top that chicken with jalepeno relish, and I'm going to make coleslaw with the dressing from the coleslaw chicken salad I posted on here. I'll put up a pic later when it's all done cooking.

For the entire recipe of sauce:

cal: 33.5 calories carbs: 7 g fat: 0.3g protein: 1.7

To determine the stats for your serving, divide the above numbers by the number of chicken breasts you cook. It won't be exact, but it should be pretty close.

I bet you could add some Filé Powder to the barbecue sauce to thicken it up.

To thicken the BBQ sauce:

Wait until it's cool. Remove all chicken. Stir in 2 more tbsp of tomato paste and one more packet of sweetener. Stir the chicken back in and reheat as necessary.

Add 13 cal and 3g carbs to the main recipe.

This makes a much nicer consistency.

Default Easy coleslaw side dish

I hope I'm not posting too much in this thread. I'm hoping some other people are getting some food ideas.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup coleslaw mix
1 tbsp cider vinegar
Mrs. Dash and salt to taste
1 packet of sweetener.

Put the vinegar, sweetener and spices into a tupperware type container. Make sure the container is big enough that you'll be able to have room to shake all the ingredients to mix them.

Stir the dressing with a fork until well-mixed.



Add the coleslaw mix, put the lid on tightly and shake until it's well mixed.



And that's it - sort of a sweet and sour coleslaw.



It keeps well in the fridge or can be eaten immediately.

This is for RFL but it's been my stand-by evening meal/dessert whatever. I'll likely keep this part of my diet regardless of whatever I'm doing because it's delicious.

2 scoops EAS Chocolate Whey Protein powder
2 tsp psyllium husk (~9g soluble fiber)
1 tsp Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa (10 calories)
1/4 of a serving of unsweetened almond milk (10 calories)
Little bit of Spray Butter
Splenda to taste

Mix the protein and husk powder in a bowl, add cocoa and mix. Add a little bit of spray butter, then slowly add the almond milk while mixing. Taste, then add desired amount of splenda.

It's basically brownie batter. I eat it with a spoon and the entire bowl is:
