medical weight loss in philadelphia weight loss diet doctors weiIf you would like more information on our medically supervised prescription weight loss program call us at 215-821-7336 and schedule your free weight loss consultation. In our Philadelphia medical weight loss program we use appetite suppressant medications, weight loss pills and diet pills along with vitamin B-12 injections therapy and nutrition and physical activity plans to help you achieve your weight loss goals. Even though you might not really be hungry when you are taking our weight loss pills you still need to eat good healthy nutrition.

And that is why we are constantly updating this blog every week with healthy recipes and today I going to give you the recipes for nacho cheese crisps, a low-carb version of chocolate bacon toffee ice cream (according to my son Noah everything taste better with bacon – lol) and a low-carb version of chocolate soufflé.

So here are the three recipes:

Nacho Cheese Crisps

  • Ingredients:
  • frozen shredded sharp cheddar cheese – 2 ounces
  • egg whites – three large egg weights
  • cream of Tartar – 1/8 teaspoon
  • taco seasoning – 2 teaspoons

Let’s start this fantastic recipe by preheating are oven to 300°F. Next we take a piece of parchment paper and place it over top of a baking sheet. Now the fun begins. Take your frozen cheese and put in a food processor and chop it into tiny pieces. In a mixing bowl mix together the cream of Tartar with the egg white’s and then add the cheese over top. After that mix the cheese into the cream of Tartar and egg white mixture. Try to keep the mixture nice fluffy but you definitely want to make sure that the cheese is all the way through out the mixture. And here is where it gets really fun, take this mixture and you could place it into a pipette bag and squeeze this mixture onto your baking sheet lined with parchment paper. You want to make strips at least 2 – 3 inches long and about 1/2 inch wide. (My son Noah made these at college and instead of using a pipette bag all he did was get a large Ziploc bag put the mixture into their could a whole and one quarter of the bag and squeezed out some pretty heavy duty strips of this delicious mixture.) After you have major strips on the baking sheet just sprinkle over top your taco seasoning. Then let this bake any of and for approximately 25 – 30 minutes. I like mine to be very crispy and the longer that you bake them the crispier they will become. But just make sure that you do not burn them. Sometimes after the first 25 minutes I will shut off my oven and just leave them there for about another 20 minutes or so so that they are nice and crispy but they are not overly burn. Of course, it’s always best when you eat this soon after it’s made at least within a couple days but if you use a really good container should be good for approximately 5 – 6 days. This recipe makes about 5 – 6 servings and each has around 55 calories, almost 2 grams of carbohydrates and about 4 grams of protein.

Chocolate Bacon Toffee Ice Cream – Low Carb

  • Serves 8
  • Ingredients:
  • Swerve, erythritol or any other sugar substitute – 1 cup
  • Eggs – 3 large
  • cocoa powder – 1 cup
  • unsweetened vanilla almond milk – 1 cup
  • heavy whipping cream – 1½ cups
  • pinch of salt
  • xanthan gum – ½ tsp
  • 90% chocolate – 4 squares
  • heavy whipping cream – 2 Tbsp
  • ¼ cup chopped crispy bacon – ¼ cup
  • Chopped sugar free toffee – 3 squares

This is a really great recipe were going to start by mixing together your cocoa powder, xanthan gum, almond milk, eggs and sugar substitute. After everything is mixed nicely make sure that you are using a microwave safe bowl and put this into the microwave and microwave for about 1 minute or so. Take it out of the microwave, stir it and then put it back into the microwave for about another 30 seconds. Then stir up one more time and microwave for another 30 seconds. Hopefully, by this time the mixture should be a bit second. If it is not; continue to microwave for 30 seconds and then stir until it’s thickened a bit. When you finally have the proper consistency mix in your heavy cream and a little pinch of salt. Let this cool in the refrigerator overnight.

Melt the chocolate together with the 2 tablespoons of whipping cream and then mix in the bacon. Spread this mixture out on either wax paper or on parchment paper and let it chill until it’s hardened. Once it’s nice and hard you can break into pieces and set it on the side. When your ice cream mixture has thoroughly chilled you can put it through an ice cream maker. Just follow the instructions that came with your ice cream maker and I’m sure everything will come out the way it should be.

Wait until there is about two minutes left for your ice cream and to be ready and then mix in the bacon and toffee. Let it process for the final 2 minutes and then you can either serve it as soon as it is ready or you can place it in the freezer and let it firm up a bit. If I am placing it in the freezer to be served later I just make sure that I take it out of the freezer for about 20 minutes before we are going to eat it. Just leaving it sit at room temperature for about 20 minutes or so will allow it to become nice and soft to see you can totally enjoy all the rich flavors of this ice cream. This recipe has about 300 calories per serving, 6 grams of carbohydrates and 5 grams of protein.

Low Carb Chocolate Souffle’

  • Ingredients:
  • butter – 1 tablespoon
  • Monk fruit sugar – 1/3 cup
  • unsweetened chocolate – 5 ounces
  • egg yolks – three large egg yolks at room temperature
  • egg whites – 6 large egg whites
  • whipped cream – 1 cup

Let’s start by preheating the oven to 375°F. Then butter your soufflé dish with your 1 tablespoon of butter. After that let’s melt your unsweetened chocolate in a bowl, you should stir this while it is melting.

When the chocolate is melted remove the ball from the heat and whisk in the egg yolks until it hardens a bit. In another bowl whisk your egg whites with a pinch of salt, use an electric mixer while adding the 1/3 cup of monk fruit. Just make sure that you at the monk fruit a bit at a time. Now stir approximately 1 cup of your egg whites into the chocolate mixture and then add this mixture to their remaining egg whites. Just mix everything together nicely. After that pour into the soufflé dish and bake this in your oven for about 18 – 20 minutes or so just until it becomes puffy with a nice crust on top.

The recipes I am giving you today are: Pepperoni Cheese Baskets, Parmesan Chicken Balls, Chocolate Macadamia Ice Cream, Chocolate Fluff and Fettuccine Alfredo.

Pepperoni Cheese Baskets*

  • Ingredients:
  • pepperoni – 3 ounces sliced into four
  • full fat cream cheese – 4 else’s
  • sour cream – 1/4 caught
  • garlic – 2 cloves of grated garlic
  • red bell pepper – 1 ounce of grated red bell pepper
  • Tabasco sauce – just a dash
  • salt and pepper to taste

Mix your full fat cream cheese, sour cream, grated garlic, red bell pepper, Tabasco sauce and salt-and-pepper until it’s combined in nicely. Take a muffin hand that will allow you to make 4 muffins and line the muffin cups with cling wrap. Next place a slice of pepperoni into the bottom each of the muffin cups and evenly divide your cream cheese and sour cream batter into the 4 muffin cups. After that just placed them in refrigerator for at least 1 hour. After about 1 hour they should be firm enough to eat but I like to leave them in there a bit longer so that the flavors really intensified. When you are ready to eat them just remove them from the muffin cups and you can enjoy them with some delicious veggies. Each muffin has approximately 240 calories and 3 grams of carbohydrates.

Parmesan Chicken Balls*

  • Ingredients:
  • chicken breast – 3 ounces of ground cooked chicken breast
  • Parmesan cheese – 1 ounce grated
  • cheddar cheese – 1 ounce shredded
  • full fat cream cheese – 10 ounces
  • sour cream – 3 tablespoons
  • chili sauce – 1/2 teaspoon
  • green onion – 1 green onion minced
  • cilantro – 2 tablespoons of finely chopped cilantro
  • salt and pepper to taste

Start by putting the sour cream and cream cheese into a bowl and mixing them until they are smooth. After that start in the chili sauce, chicken, Parmesan cheese, cheddar cheese and salt-and-pepper. Kathy then take a plate and mixed together the cilantro and green onion. Now divide your chicken mixture into 12 equal portions and put them onto the herbs. Gently roll each of the first to form balls and then place them in the refrigerator and give them time to set. This is a really fantastic recipe and has only 124 calories and 1 gram of carbohydrate.

Chocolate Macadamia Ice Cream*

  • Ingredients:
  • Heavy Whipping Cream – 1 Cup
  • Full Fat Cream Cheese – 1 Cup
  • unsweetened cocoa powder – 2 tablespoons
  • macadamia nut butter – 2 tablespoons
  • xanthan gum – 1 teaspoon
  • liquid Stevia extract – 1/4 teaspoon or more depending upon your taste
  • macadamia nuts – 1 ounce of chopped academia nuts.

We begin this great recipe by placing all the ingredients, except for the nuts, into a food processor or blender and mix until everything is nice and creamy smooth. After that if you have an ice cream maker just charted the ice cream maker or if you do not have an ice cream maker you could just place it in the freezer. Just make sure that it’s in a freezer proof container. If you do not have an ice cream maker you will have to stir this about every normal 30 minutes or so to make sure that it does not crystallize. Let it freeze until you have the ice cream texture that you like. I usually like to take mine out of the freezer for about a good 15 minutes before serving it. When you are ready you can just sprinkle the chopped macadamia nuts over top of the ice cream. This recipe makes six servings. Each serving has approximately 290 calories and 5 grams of carbohydrates.

Chocolate Fluff*

This is a super easy recipe to make all that you need is to use an electric mixer and just with all of the ingredients together until it is stiff. And if there you have it, two servings of the delicious low-carb and no sugar chocolate whip.

This recipe makes two servings each of them having about 200 calories, 3 grams of carbohydrates and 2 grams of protein.

  • Ingredients:
  • fettuccine style tofu shirataki noodles – 1 packet
  • cream cheese with chives and onions – 1 tablespoon
  • butter – 1 tablespoon
  • grated Romano or Parmesan cheese – 2 tablespoons

First we must cook our shiitake noodles, just follow the package directions to cook them properly.(I usually cook my shiitake noodles by first draining and rinsing them. Then I put them in the microwave bowl and microwave them for about 2 minutes and then I drain them. Next I microwave them one more time for about a minute or so and then I trained them one more time.) After you have cooked your noodles place them in a bowl and mix in the cream cheese with chive and onions in the butter and stir everything until they melt and for a very nice smooth sauce. After that to sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of your cheese and stir this end. And you can use the other 1 tablespoon of grated cheese to sprinkle over top. Now all you have to do is eat and enjoy.

Low-Carb Butterscotch Delight Crispy Bars

Ingredients

  • Crispy Crunchy for the inside:
  • Swerve – 1 cup
  • butterscotch extract – 2 teaspoon
  • coconut oil – 3 tablespoons

Nugget:

  • butter or coconut oil – 1/4 cup
  • Swerve  or erythritol  – 1/4 cup
  • stevia glycerite – 1 teaspoon
  • cream cheese – 1/4 cup
  • natural peanut butter – 1/4 cup
  • vanilla – 1 teaspoon

Chocolate Icing:

  • butter or coconut oil – 6 tablespoons
  • unsweetened cocoa powder – 4 tablespoons
  • Swerve confectioner – 4 tablespoons
  • stevia glycerite – 1 teaspoon
  • vanilla extract – 1 teaspoon
  • ground sea salt – 1/8 teaspoon

Instructions

To make the crispy part:

Start by pre-heating our oven to 350°F  and then line a baking sheet  with a good-quality parchment paper. After that mix together the coconut oil, the butterscotch extract and the swerve  until it looks like small breadcrumbs.

Now all that you have to do is spoon it out on top of your parchment paper and spread it nicely into a thin layer. Place it in the oven and allow it to bake for approximately 15 minutes, plus or minus a few minutes.  When it’s done just take it out of the oven and set it on the side and let it cool down totally.  The more you let it cool the harder the candy will become and just break it into tiny pieces.

To make the nugget:

As the yummy crunchy part is in the oven baking we can now make the nugget. Put your 1/4 cup of swerve, 1/4 cup of natural peanut butter, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract,  1 teaspoon of Stevia glycerite, 1/4 cup of butter and the cream cheese in a medium-sized bowl ( just make sure that it’s microwavable safe), stir it up  a little bit then place it in your microwave for approximately one minute or so. Let it cool down and then mix everything together nicely.

Now, just mix the nugget to the crunchy part that you have broken into pieces and mix them until they are combined nicely. Take a 4 x 4 inch glass container and lined with parchment paper and pour this mixture into it. Make sure that you level out the top.

To make the Chocolate icing:

Place a saucepan over low heat and add in your coconut oil and when it starts to melt store in your extracts, chocolate, salt and sweeteners until everything is totally melted. When this is melted spread it over top of your nugget mixture and then sent it back in your refrigerator to cool down. When it is ready just cut it into any size of bars that you like. I hope you enjoy these nice tasty snacks as much as I do. This recipe makes eight servings and each of them has approximately 3 grams of carbohydrates, 250 cal about 4 grams of protein.

If you are one of our weight loss patients you know that I believe that food is meant to be enjoyed. Growing up in my family everything that we did, every celebration every event was always celebrated with food, and lots of. In a sense, food was a celebration of life.

And some of my happiest from childhood are of sitting together with my great-grandparents, grandparents, parents, my brother and sister, and uncles and cousins at my great-grandmothers dining room table where we feasted upon ravioli, lasagna, baked zitti, gnocchi and desserts like ricotta filled cannolis and cream puffs. Yes, you may have guessed, that I grew up in a large Italian family! And like most Italian families most interactions with one another took place at the kitchen table or dining room table enjoying good food and each other.

That is why in our weight loss program we make a point of giving you lots of recipes of wholesome food that we all grew up eating but our versions of these recipes will have lower calories and lower carbohydrates. Making them weight loss friendly. But they taste so good you won’t believe there diet food.

So here are two great recipes; one is for a low carbohydrate version of my grandmother’s rotolo and the other is for a low-carb recipe for lasagna that is quick and easy to make.

This is a family recipe that my great-grandmother Virginia has handed down to my wife. My wife has changed the recipe a bit, to make it more diabetic friendly, but it tastes just as good if not better than Great[grandma’s recipe.

Rotolo – Verdi Style

  • Ingredients for the Filling:
  • ricotta cheese – 12 ounces 1 1/2 cups
  • Parmesan cheese, approximately the 4 ounces of grated Parmesan cheese
  • finely chopped fresh oregano – 1/2 cup
  • finely chopped – fresh parsley – 1/2 cup
  • egg – 1 large egg
  • minced raw garlic – 3 cloves
  • Sea salt – 1/2 teaspoon
  • nutmeg – 1/8 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
  • black pepper – 1/8 teaspoon of ground black pepper
  • Additional Ingredients:
  • Roasted or delimeat chicken breast that you can get from your supermarket – cut into strips that are 1.5 inches wide and 6 inches long. You should have about 24 slices of meat.
  • 2 cups of tomato sauce
  • shredded mozzarella cheese – approximately the 1/2 cup
  • some additional Parmesan cheese to serve over top when everything is finished cooking.

First preheat your oven to 300°F. Combine all of the ingredients together except for the chicken breast tomato sauce and the extra 1/2 cup of shredded mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. Make sure that all of the ingredients are mixed nicely.

Then take your strips of chicken and place them on your counter and take 1/3 cup of the mixture of all your ingredients in place it on to your strip of chicken. Then start rolling it up and place it with the seam side down. Do this with the rest of your chicken strips. After that take 1 cup of your tomato sauce and pour it into the bottom of a cast iron skillet approximately 12 inches or you can use any other type of ovenproof skillet or pan.

Then take your chicken rolls and put them in the pan with them laying on their side. Take all of your roles of meat and place them in the pan so they fit very snugly. Make sure that your filling is facing upward. Next take the remaining 1 cup of tomato sauce and pour it over top. You can now put this in your oven and let it bake for approximately the 20 minutes or until the cheese is melted completely.

When it is done take it out of the oven and you can now sprinkle your mozzarella generously over top. Place it back in the oven for about another 10 minutes or so or until the cheese is melted once again. After that take it out of the oven and let it stand for at least a good 15 minutes before serving. And of course you can top it with the extra Parmesan cheese if you would like.

This recipe makes 12 servings each of them has about 386 calories, 61 grams of protein and 5 grams of carbohydrates.

Lasagna – Low Carb Style Roll Ups

  • Ingredients:
  • approximately three-quarter pound and you can use either oven roasted chicken breast from the deli counter – approximately 16 slices or you can use sliced oven roasted turkey from your deli counter. Make sure that the slices of meat are approximately 1/8 inch and you want to have 16 slices.
  • To make the filling you will need:
  • ricotta cheese – 1 cup
  • egg – 1 large egg
  • Parmesan cheese – approximately 1/3 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
  • mozzarella cheese – 1 1/2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Additional Ingredients
  • tomatoes – three medium-sized tomatoes – sliced thin
  • fresh basil leaves
  • 2 cups of tomato sauce – meat sauce or marinara sauce

As always first we have to preheat your oven. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Place your turkey on a large sheet of parchment paper. To make the filling take a large bowl and mix together the eggs ricotta cheese until their mixed nicely and then stir in the mozzarella cheese and the Parmesan cheese.

After you have made the filling take about 1/4 cup of it and place it on top of one of your meat slices and spread it out evenly. Do this with the remaining slices of meat. Take about 3 slices of tomato and place them over top of your filling on each of the slices of meat. Next take some of your basil and place it on top of your tomatoes.
