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.

After that rollup each slice of meat and place them, seam side down, a and a baking dish that is approximately 8 inches. When you have all of the strips of meat rolled up with the mixture tomato and basil inside and placed in your baking pans top each one of them with the marinara sauce. I like to use about 2 – 3 tablespoons of the sauce.

Now we are finally ready to place it in the oven and bake it for about 25 minutes or so or until the cheese is melted. This recipe makes four servings each of them has 467 cal, 50 grams of protein and 9 g of carbohydrates.

Here are 2 great recipes for you. A great Parfait of Berries and Cream and awesome chicken wings that are great for Sunday football games.

Elyse’s Favorite Parfait – Berries and Cream – Paleo Recipe

  • Heavy cream– whipping cream–1/2 cup
  • Cocoa powder–1 tablespoon
  • Vanilla extract– 1 teaspoon
  • Almonds – 6 crushed almonds
  • Walnuts– 6 crushed walnuts
  • Strawberries– 3 strawberries diced
  • Raspberries – 1/3 cup
  • BlackBerries– 1/3 third cup
  • Blueberries– 10 blueberries
  • Chia seeds– 1/2 tablespoons
  • Flax seeds – 1/2 tablespoons of ground flaxseed
  • Cinnamon – 1 teaspoon of cinnamon

First put your heavy whipping cream in a large bowl and mix in the vanilla extract and cocoa powder.

Then using a mixer, mix the cream – (whip it) – for about 3 minutes. If you like, you can place this in the freezer for about 40 minutes for a nice cold snack. Then mix the nuts and berries into the cream. After that, mix in the ground flaxseed, Chia seeds and then sprinkle the cinnamon over top if you like.

This recipe makes two servings. I like this recipe because the nuts make it crunchy, the fruit makes it sweet (but not too sweet)  and the full fat heavy cream makes it even more enjoyable. This is great for breakfast and it’s also really good for a snack during the day. The nuts and cream make it hearty enough for the cold winter months and it’s also cool and refreshing for those hot summer days. It’s a perfect recipe.

Football Sunday Wings

  • Chicken wings – 2 pounds
  • Himalayan salt – 1 tablespoon
  • Ground black pepper – 1 teaspoon
  • Baking powder – 1 tablespoon
  • Smoked paprika – 1 teaspoon
  • Garlic salt – 1 teaspoon
  • Coconut oil – 2 tablespoons
  • Optional- hot sauce- 2 tablespoons

Mix together the pepper, salt, baking powder, paprika and garlic salt. Take a large plastic Ziploc bag and add the chicken wings along with your mixture of spices. Close it and then shake the bag well to coat all of the wings with the seasoning. Preheat a large pan over medium heat and melt the coconut oil. Next check your chicken wings and place them in the skillet and then place a cover over top of the skillet and cook this for about 10–12 minutes. Then flip the wings over and let them cook for another 10–12 minutes until they are nice and brown. When they are finished cooking remove them from the heat and cool down for a little bit. You could serve them with hot sauce if you like.

Cookies and Cream Zero Belly Fat Recipe by Medical Weight Loss in Philadelphia

medical weight loss in philadlephia weight loss diet doctors where can i get phentermine in philadelphia

medical weight loss in philadlephia weight loss diet doctors where can i get phentermine in philadelphia

Hi everyone this is Dr. Kenny. I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season. In this blog post I’m going to give you an awesome recipe for a mug cake. It’s another twist on the recipe for a cookies and cream cake. This recipe is great because it’s loaded with cookie chunks and it’s super simple and quick to make. It has lots of good healthy protein, fiber and it’s also gluten-free,  dairy free and paleo friendly.

During the holiday season of November and December statistics tell us that people can gain anywhere from 10 pounds and is much as 20 pounds during these two months.

Between family dinners, get-togethers and celebrations with friends and family and even people bringing lots of delicious but fattening goodies into the workplace it’s very difficult to maintain any type of healthy eating program let alone a weight loss eating nutrition program.

So that is why during these next few weeks I’m going to step up my game and try to add at least three new recipes to our website. Some of these recipes may be low carbohydrate and low sugar and others will be low-calorie versions of foods that we love to eat. I am also going to try to add some healthy ingredients to foods that are normally loaded with sugar and lots of calories.

And that’s exactly what I’m doing with this recipe for this cooking cream mug cake. Usually this type of recipe has nothing but lots and lots of sugar in calories and provide no nutritional value. But by using coconut flour and almond flour we are adding good healthy fiber and significantly decreasing the amount of sugar that we would normally be eating if this recipe was made from good old white processed flour. And because we are using Stevia or swerve instead of regular sugar we are decreasing the amount of sugar that would normally be in this type of recipe. By using unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk we are also increasing its nutritional value and eliminating lots of allergic reactions that are associated with normal regular dairy products such as milk.

If you want to make this recipe totally good for you you should probably decrease the amount of optional ingredients like in the unsweetened sugar-free chocolate or vanilla chips. I just added these in their because my son Noah saw me making this recipe this morning and he wanted to add some additional flavor to the recipe. If you like the addition of the unsweetened/sugar free chocolate or vanilla chips make sure you tell Noah when you see him working in the office this summer.

If you are not one of our Philadelphia medical weight loss patients or Bucks County medical weight loss patients and would like information on our weight loss program, I invite you to call us and schedule your free medical weight loss consultation. Call us now at 215-821-7336 and Lisa will be more than happy to schedule your free consultation.

Here is the recipe:

Creamy Cookie Cake Recipe – Low Carb

  • Ingredients
  • coconut flour – 1&1/2 TBSPS
  • almond flour – 1 TBSP
  • sea salt – just a dash
  • baking powder – 1/2 TSP
  • Swerve or Stevia – 1 TBSP
  • Paleo cookie – any kind of 1-3 paleo cookies
  • egg – 1 large egg
  • unsweetened almond or coconut milk any flavor – 1/4 cup
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract – 1/2 TSP
  • Optional – unsweetened/sugar free chocolate or vanilla chips – 1 TBSP

Instructions:   In an oversized mug or even a bowl mix together your coconut flour, salt, baking powder, almond flour, swerve or Stevia and your cookie.

Take another bowl and mix together your unsweetened coconut milk or almond milk, eggs and vanilla extract. Make sure that you blend this well together. Now that you have your dry ingredients in one bowl and your wet ingredients in another were going to combined the two of them and stir everything until it’s mixed together nicely.

Next get an over-sized mug or even better a nice sized ball and for everything into it. Place it in the microwave and cook it for about 45 seconds. Then take it out of the microwave and check it. At this point you can add your chocolate chips and place it back to the microwave and cook it for as long as it needs to cook everything thoroughly.

This could possibly take another minute or so. Total microwaving time is anywhere from 1 – 2 minutes. But again depending upon the strength of your microwave it might be a little bit more or even a little bit less time. When it’s thoroughly cooked take it out of the microwave let it cool down quite a bit before attempting to eat it. This recipe makes one serving.

So there you have it another fantastic low-carb recipe that not only taste good but it’s also very good for your waistline.

Biscotti Low Carb & Gluten Free

  • Ingredients:
  • 1 large egg
  • Swerve – ⅓ cup
  • stevia extract – ¼ tsp
  • butter – ¼ cup
  • vanilla extract, sugar free – ½ tsp
  • almond flour – 1 and ¾ cups
  • xanthan gum – ¼ tsp
  • unsweetened cocoa – ½ cup
  • baking soda – ½ tsp
  • salt – ¼ tsp
  • cinnamon – 1 tsp
  • Optional items include chopped nuts and sugar free chocolate chips

Instructions:

First we should preheat our oven to 325 F. Then in a bowl, stir or blend together the eggs, butter, vanilla extract, swerve and stevia. In another bowl stir together the remaining ingredients until they are mixed nicely. Then combine the ingredients of both bowls and you can add the sugar free chocolate chips and the nuts if you would like to.

Mold this into a nice big dough ball. Next grease a cookie sheet and spread the dough out and form your typical biscotti. Next we bake this for about 25 minutes, just until it’s slightly browned. Take it out of the oven and decrease the temperature to 275 F. Allow the biscotti to cool down for about 14 minutes and cut it into strips that are approximately one half inch wide. Then put the individual biscotti on their side onto the cookie sheet and bake them for another 25 – 30 minutes, or for as long as to takes for them to cook to a nice crispness.

This recipes makes about 15 biscotti and each has approx 2 grams of carbohydrates.

Oreo Cookies and Cream Cheesecake Low Carb

  • Ingredients:
  • Low carbohydrate chocolate cookies – one pound (the above cookie recipe is perfect for this)
  • butter – ½ cup
  • cream cheese – 8 ounces
  • Swerve – ⅔ cup
  • stevia extract – ½ tsp
  • heavy cream – 1 cup
  • eggs – 6 large
  • coconut flour – 2 tbsps
  • vanilla extract – sugar free – 2 tbsps

This is a really fantastic recipe. To start just take a 9 inch spring form pan and grease it. Then preheat your oven to 350°F. Next break up your cookies into very tiny crumbs. You can use your hands or just use your food processor to do this. Divide your cookie crumbs into two separate bowls and stir one half into your melted butter. You are going to take this butter and cookie crumb mixture and line the bottom of your springform pan with it.  

After doing this place the pan in your refrigerator. Next you want to blend together your swerve, whipping cream and cream cheese. Make sure that you use a large bowl for this.  When it’s nice and smooth you can add the vanilla, coconut flour and eggs and stir everything until it’s creamy smooth. Then take your springform pan out of the refrigerator and pour half of your cream cheese mixture over top of the crust. Then take the other half of your cookie crumbs and pour that over top and then just pour the rest of the creamy mixture over top of that. Next place this in the oven and let it bake for about an hour or so. You want to bake it for as long as it takes for the center to become very firm.

Finally take the cheesecake out of the oven and let it cool down. Personally I like to let it cool down for at least one hour and then you can remove it from the pan. For the best tasting cheesecake I like to leave it in the refrigerator until the next day. This is one of those recipes where there cake will actually taste better the next day.  This recipe makes 12 servings each of them having about 3 – 4 grams of carbohydrates.

If you need help achieving your weight loss goals I invite you to call us and schedule your free medical weight loss consultation at 215-821-7336. Call now and Lisa will be glad to schedule your free consultation for you. Happy holidays and I hope you enjoy these recipes is much as I do.

Low-Carb Pancakes and Syrup*

This is another one of my favorite recipes. It takes about 10 minutes to prepare everything and then of course you have to add the cooking time for cooking each of the pancakes. This recipe makes 12 pancakes and one serving size is considered three pancakes. Try to make the pancakes the size of about 5 inches.

  • Ingredients:
  • 3 large eggs – separate the yellow from the white
  • protein powder – 2 tablespoons of either egg white protein or any other type of protein powder that you like. Just make sure that it does not contain a lot of sugar and carbohydrates. That’s why I prefer egg white protein because it’s very low in carbs and in sugar.
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract – you could really use any flavor that you prefer
  • Stevia or swerve – 1 teaspoon
  • Coconut oil or organic respite voter – we use this to coat our pan
  • 1/2 cup of our delicious brown butter syrup – for pouring over top of our pancakes

We begin by whipping the egg whites in a bowl for several minutes until they become very stiff. After that blend in the yolks, vanilla extract, Stevia and your protein powder.

Heat the coconut oil or the unsalted butter over top a medium – high heat then when it’s hot take 1/4 cup of the batter and pour it into your pan. (When my wife does this the pancakes always seem to be in perfect shape but for some reason when I do it I need to use a utensil to make it into an almost perfect circle.)

Then just fry the pancake until it’s a golden brown on both sides. This usually takes about 2 minutes per side. After that remove the pancake from the heat and set it aside on a plate and cover it to keep it nice and warm. Then just repeat this process until there is no more batter left. I usually need to add a bit more butter or coconut oil between cooking each pancake.

When you have cooked all of the batter just place the pancakes on individual serving plates and pour the syrup over top. Remember a serving size is three pancakes and each serving has approximately 175 cal, 13 g of fat, 8 g of protein, 0.6 g of carbohydrates in 0 g of fiber.

Brown Butter Syrup*

This is the recipe for the syrup to pour over top of your pancakes or anything else that  you would like to use syrup with. It only takes about one minute to mix everything together and then it takes about another five minutes for it to cook. This recipe makes one and a half cups of syrup and usually 2 tablespoons are considered a serving size. Each serving has approximately 75 cal, 8.4 g of fat, 0.2 g of protein 0.2 g of carbohydrates in 0 g of fiber.

  • Ingredients:
  • unsalted butter – 1 stick
  • 1/2 cup of swerve – you can use any others sugar substitute for this recipe, but I prefer to use swerve. It tastes just like real sugar and it doesn’t have that aftertaste that most other products have. Also,  if you consume a large quantity of some of the other sugar substitutes like xylitol   you may experience some stomach upset (and possibly diarrhea).
  • Cream cheese – 1 ounce
  • unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk – 1/2 cup
  • 1 teaspoon of maple extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt

First we take a large saucepan and heat the butter over high heat, stirring it every few seconds.  The butter will start to foam up towards the top of the pan and it will then fall back down. You will start to see quite a few brown flecks and that is when you should remove it from the heat.

Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the swerve until it’s nice and smooth.  At this point you can mix in the cream cheese and stir until it’s smooth and then stir in the almond milk, maple extract and the salt.

Now set the pan aside and let it cool down a bit and then pour the mixture into a glass jar. It can stay fresh in the refrigerator for 2 weeks. Now, because of the ingredients, it will become thick while it is in the refrigerator. So when you are ready to use it you can just reheat it in a microwave or by placing it in a pan and heating it over a flame on your stove-top.

Medical Weight Loss in Phila

Medical Weight Loss in Phila

This is a fantastic recipe for one of my most favorite comfort food dishes.

Especially now that it’s going to be cold outside there is nothing like a hot taco salad to satisfy the hungriest of appetites and make you feel good all at the same time.

 

Taco Salad*

This recipe makes approximately 6 servings each of them has about 360 cal, 29.5 g of protein, 9.6 g of fat and 2.3 g of fiber.

  • The ingredients are:
  • Ground beef – three-quarter pound
  • Diced yellow onion – 2 tablespoons
  • Chopped green and red bell peppers – 1 cup
  • Taco seasoning – 1 tablespoon (see the recipe below or use a premade seasoning)
  • Chopped fresh cilantro – 1/4 cup
  • Chopped red leaf lettuce – 4 cups
  • Diced yellow tomatoes – 2 cups
  • Shredded sharp cheddar cheese – 1 cup
  • Chopped green onions – 1/4 cup
  • Sliced black olives – 1/4 cup
  • Sour cream – 6 tablespoons

In a very large skillet cook the beef, yellow onion and bell pepper with the taco seasoning over medium heat until the beef is browned nicely, make sure that you are starting the meat so that it starts to crumble. Then add the cilantro and salsa and lower the heat to a low simmer to keep it warm. Until you are ready to serve it. Divide this mixture evenly amongst six serving plates and sprinkle over top the diced tomatoes, cheese, black olives and green onions. You can even top this with the sour cream if you like.

Taco Seasoning Recipe*

This is a quick and easy recipe that you could sprinkle over top almost anything.

  • Ingredients:
  • chili powder – 2 tablespoons
  • ground cumin – 1 tablespoon
  • Sea salt – 2 teaspoons
  • fresh ground black pepper – 2 teaspoons
  • paprika – 1 teaspoon
  • ground coriander – 1 teaspoon
  • garlic powder – 1/2 teaspoon
  • onion powder – 1/2 teaspoon
  • red pepper flakes – 1/2 teaspoon
  • ground dried oregano – 1/2 teaspoon
  • optional – 2 teaspoons of sugar substitute

Now all that you have to do is combine the ingredients in a large all until everything is mixed together nicely. You can stir this in an airtight container. Make sure that you keep it stored away from the heat and the light. And usually this will stay fresh for approximately 2 months.
