Medical Weight Loss Philadelphia 4th of July Recipes

medical_weight_loss_philadelphiaIt’s Saturday morning July 1st and yes we are in the office seeing people. Helping everyone achieve their weight loss, health and fitness goals. So many people came into the office today telling me how much they enjoyed the sushi recipe that I recently posted.

So I have decided to post a few more recipes today that are Paleo and Vegan-friendly and also quick and easy to make. Two of the recipes I am posting are for a Caesar dressing and for guacamole. These two recipes are loaded with great tasting vegetables and spices and personally I think they taste better than the store-bought versions. And they are definitely more healthy for you. I’m also going to give you the recipes for Honey Drizzled Romaine Lettuce Wraps and Ashley’s Super Salad.

These recipes taste fantastic and they are all paleo and vegan friendly. And if you are not following a Paleo or vegan diet it doesn’t matter because these recipes just taste so good and as an extra bonus they will help you lose weight.

And now here are the recipes:

Honey Drizzled Romaine Lettuce Wraps

  • Romaine lettuce leaves – 5 large romaine lettuce leaves
  • Raw almond butter –  5 tablespoons of raw almond butter
  • Honey – 3 teaspoons of raw honey

This is a super simple easy and delicious recipe to make. Just take 1 tbsp of the almond butter and spread it all over your lettuce leaf and take ½ Teaspoons of the raw honey and poured over top and then just roll up the leaf and enjoy.

Ashley’s Super Salad Recipe

  • Romaine lettuce – ½ pound
  • Grape tomatoes – 1 cup sliced in half
  • Raisins – 1 cup
  • Apple – 1 large apple – diced
  • Scallions – 3 tablespoons of chopped scallions
  • Chives – 2 tablespoons of chopped chives
  • Red or yellow pepper – 1 large chopped and diced
  • Cucumber – 1 large cucumber peeled and chopped
  • Basil – ¼ cup – fresh basil is preferred

Stir all of the above ingredients is a large bowl and serve with your favorite salad dressing.

Caesar Dressing

  • cold pressed olive oil- ¼  cup
  • garlic – 2 cloves of chopped garlic
  • Celery – 4 stalks of celery cut in half
  • Water – 1/2 cup of water
  • lemon juice – ¼  cup of fresh lemon juice
  • Soy sauce  – ¼ cup og low sodium soy sauce
  • Sweet miso – 2 tbsps
  • Dates – 5
  • Pepper – fresh ground pepper to taste

Combine all of the ingredients in an airtight jar and shake well until all of the ingredients are blended nicely. This makes about 3 cups of dressing and it’s best to keep it refrigerated for about 5 days.

Guacamole

  • Avocados – 3 chopped
  • Limes – squeeze the juice of 2 large limes
  • Onion – ¼ cup of chopped red onion
  • Grape tomatoes – 1 cup of grape tomatoes sliced in half
  • Peppers – either red or yellow ½ cup chopped

Too make this recipe all that you have to do is combine all of the ingredients into a large bowl. If you like you can mash the avocados or just put everything into a Nutribullet or something like that. This recipe makes approximately two cups of guacamole.

So there we have it four great recipes that taste good and will also help you achieve your health and  weight loss goals. I decided to put the Caesar dressing and the guacamole recipe in this post because a lot of new patients have been coming into the practice and for the most part they are eating a good diet but some of the things that most people seem to be getting wrong are the types of salad dressing and dips they are using. And that’s why some of my more recent posts have included recipes for diet friendly dressing and dips.

If you, a loved one or co-worker would like more information on our medical weight loss program I invite you to call and speak with Lisa and she will schedule you for a complimentary consultation. Just call us at 215-821-7336 and schedule your visit with us.
