Oopsies (bread or bun substitute)

  • 3 large eggs, separated
  • 3 oz. cream cheese
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder (or more)
  • 1 tsp psyllium powder (optional)

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.

Whip the eggs whites well, until they are dry.  In a separate bowl, cream the other ingredients.  Fold in the egg whites.  Spread in a greased pan or on parchment paper and bake at 300 degrees for about 25 minutes.  Makes 6-8 buns (for 3-4 sandwiches).

No-carb Pancakes

  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 tbs psyllium powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • dash of cinnamon

It's a good idea to put the eggs in the blender first, then add the cream cheese a large chunk at a time as it is blending.  The psyllium powder tends to "set up" if the pancakes are not cooked quickly.  If it does, add a little water and blend again to thin the batter. 

Pour into buttered pans and cook like pancakes.

Low-Carb Carrot Muffins

  • 6 eggs
  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • 2 heaping tsp psyllium powder
  • 1 heaping tsp baking powder
  • Pumpkin Pie spices (Cinnamon, ginger and cloves) to taste
  • 1/8 cup xylitol
  • 1/3 cub raisins if wanted
  • 3 medium carrots, grated

Blend all but carrots and raisins.  Mix in the carrots and raisins and let gel for 10 minutes.  Pour into greased muffin tins and bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes.

Low-Carb Cauliflower Pilaf

  • 1/2 head cauliflower, boiled
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 tsp pressed garlic
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 3/4 cup turkey or other broth
  • Salt and Pepper

Mash the cauliflower.  Add the other ingredients.  Cook uncovered until the vegetables are cooked and no liquid shows.

Low-Carb Cheesecake

Note that this is low-carb, but definitely not low-calorie.

  • 3  8-oz packages cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/3 cub xylitol sweetener
  • 1 or 2 tsp vanilla
  • About 1 1/2 cups mashed pumpkin or squash.  (You may substitute lemon or chocolate, but the cheesecake will be smaller)
  • Pumpkin pie spices (Cinnamon, ginger and cloves) to taste

Put eggs in a blender and gradually blend in the sour cream and other ingredients.  Pour into a spring pan.  Bake in a water bath for 75 minutes at 300 degrees.  Cool for at least 3 hours before serving.

No-Carb Pizza Crust

  • 4 eggs
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • some salt, pepper and garlic
  • 1 tsp Italian herb blend
  • 1 tsp psyllium powder

Blend ingredients, eggs first.  Pour into a greased pizza pan.  Bake for about 25 minutes at 350 degrees.  Cool, add toppings, and bake for another 20 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.

Cauliflower and Cheese

  • 1/2 head of cauliflower, steamed until translucent
  • 2-3 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 small onion
  • one clove of pressed garlic
  • 1/4 cub heavy cream
  • 1 oz cream cheese
  • about a 2 inch cube of cheddar cheese, diced

Combine in a sauce pan, heat until the onion and garlic are cooked, about 10 minutes.

Breakfast shake

  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2 scoops of your favorite whey powder
  • About 1 tsp of bilberry powder
  • about 1 tsp of pomegranate powder (the high-potency, low-sugar stuff)
  • about 1 tsp of cocoa
  • 2 tbsp fresh yogurt
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream

Other powdered supplements if desired.  I use magnesium citrate powder and a little potassium chloride.

(For Tony, I leave out the pomegranate powder, and for me I leave out the cocoa.  Any high-antioxidant supplements are good.)

Stir or blend and drink.
