Because of the unusually hot weather lots of our patients were wearing their warm weather clothing and showing off their new slim and trim sexy bodies! And when everyone asked them what they were doing they were kind enough to give our weight loss program some of the credit for their success and gave everyone are contact information and told him to call us for the free medical what was consultation. I have to say that at least 70% or more of our new patients this week came from referrals from our weight loss patients. So for this I give all of you my heartfelt thanks.

One of our new patients, Tamika, was so excited to join our program this week. She told me that she has been exercising with one of her coworkers, Brenda(who has been one of our weight loss patients) and while Brenda was losing lots of weight, she herself only lost a few pounds. So she finally asked Brenda if she was doing anything else to help her lose all of that weight and Brenda told her about our weight loss program. And our weight loss program was the only thing that she was doing differently. So again thank you Brenda and everyone else who has referred people into our weight loss program.

  • unsweetened coconut milk – 1/4 cup
  • frozen bananas -2
  • honey – 1 tsp
  • ground ginger – 1/4 tsp
  • ground cinnamon – 1/4 tsp
  • vanilla – 1/4 tsp

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.

Cocoa Nutty Low-Carb Treats

Now, just spread it out over top of your baking sheets and bake it for approximately the 13 – 16 minutes. The cooking time will vary depending upon the intensity of your oven. When it   finished baking, allow it to cool down. It will get harder the longer that cools. Be sure that you keep this in an container that is airtight in the refrigerator. I have kept it in the refrigerator up to 2 this table 3 weeks and it was fine. You can use this as a topping for some of the other great recipes I have on the site or you can just eat it by itself. This recipe makes 4 servings and each has approximately 97 cal, 1/2 grams of protein and 1 grams of carbohydrates.

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.

Starvation type diets usually just set you up to fail eventually and that is why we do not believe in starvation diets. If you are interested in learning more about our medical weight loss program please call Lisa and scheduled your free weight loss consultation. Call 215-821-7336 and Lisa will be glad to schedule you.

Now, when I said most of our patients get to eat everything in moderation I was totally serious. Especially if they are making the recipes that I put on this website each and every week. On this site you will find recipes for low carbohydrate and low sugar cheesecake, low-calorie lasagna, sugar-free ice cream, and even low carbohydrate and sugar free dessert recipes like tiramisu, cannolis and Panna Cotta.

Today I am going to give you the recipes for low carbohydrate bagels and my favorite scrambled eggs fiesta. These are to low carbohydrate recipes that go extremely well together. If you have a both of these together for breakfast you will be totally amazed that diet food could possibly taste this good.

Low Carbohydrate Bagels*
Ingredients:
1/2 cup of our vanilla gluten-free, soy free, sugar free and zero carbohydrate protein powder
coconut flour – 2 TBS
baking powder – 1 TSP
Sea salt – one quarter TSP
xanthan gum – 1/2 TSP
melted coconut oil – 1/4 cup
large eggs – 10
you may also add 2 – TSP of any type of slavery extract like vanilla or blueberry if you like.

Let’s begin by preheating the oven to 325°F. Then spray to 6 cavity donut pans with nonstick cooking spray. In a bowl mix together the xanthan gum in a coconut oil until it splendid nicely together and very smooth. And in another bowl stir together the baking powder, vanilla protein powder, salt and coconut flour. After this bowl is combined nicely together add the extract, eggs and coconut oil and stir this together and then combine the ingredients of all the bowls together. Mix everything together until it forms a nice doughey texture. Then all you have to do is spoon this into your doughnut pans and bake for about 18 – 22 minutes, or just until the top becomes a light golden brown. I usually stir these in a Tupperware container that is airtight in the refrigerator and they normally stay for about 1 week like this. But I have put them in the freezer for as long as three weeks and they were perfectly fine. This recipe makes 12 bagels and each of them has 119 cal, 2 g of carbohydrates, 8.9 g of fat and 7.8 g of protein.

Scrambled Eggs Fiesta*
Ingredients:
1 finely diced cherry tomato
chopped fresh chives – 2 TBS
6 – beaten large eggs
butter – 2 TBS
Sea salt – 1/2 TSP
black pepper – 1/2 TSP
sour cream – 2 TBS
bacon – 4 ounces cooked and chopped into small pieces

we are going to start this phenomenal recipe by melting the butter in a small pan over medium – low heat and then in a bowl mix together the chives, pepper, salt, diced tomato and eggs. Then pour this into your saucepan and allow it to cook for several minutes of course stirring it and keeping everything mixing nicely. When you’re eggs are finished cooking take them off of the flame and add the sour cream stirring everything together well. Finally mix in the bacon and serve this while it’s nice and warm. This recipe makes two servings each of them has about 36 g of fat, 4 g of carbohydrates, 480 cal and almost 1 gram of fiber.

In this article I am going to give you the recipe for a delicious low-carb meatball with an amazing sauce, that my wife made for us this past Thanksgiving for all of us to enjoy. And I am also going to give you a recipe that I made myself for a chocolate peanut butter bar.

Meatball Recipe*

  • Ingredients:
  • Grass fed ground beef– 2 pounds
  • Tomato sauce– 1/4 cup
  • Minced yellow onion– 1/4 cups

  • The ingredients for the sauce are:
  • Unsalted butter– one stick
  • Cream cheese– 2 ounces
  • Beef broth – 1/3 third cup
  • Grated Parmesan cheese – 1/2 cup
  • Ground nutmeg – 1/8  teaspoon

Start by preheating your oven to 325°F. Then in a very large bowl combine all of the ingredients together and mix everything total it’s totally combined. After you have mixed all of the ingredients together it’s time to make your meatballs. Try to shape them into 1 1/2 inch meatballs and place them on a baking sheet and let them bake for about 45 minutes or 1 hour. Just make sure that they are totally cooked all the way through.

Now it’s time to make the sauce while meatballs are baking. Take a nice sized sauce pan and place the butter in there and heat until’s the butter starts to sizzle and you start to see brown flecks. Just make sure that you are stirring this because you do not want the butter to burn. Decrease the heat to a low setting and mix in the cream cheese, Nutmeg, Parmesan cheese and bone broth and let this simmer for approximately 16 to 17 minutes. Remove the meatballs from the oven when they are cooked. Now all you have to do is arrange to them on a serving dish and enjoy them with the sauce.

This recipe makes about 16 servings as an appetizer if you make the meatballs smaller or if you make them larger you should be able to make about eight servings.

When you first come in you will be evaluated by the healthcare provider and then they will their clinical skills and expertise and make the recommendations as to what would be the best weight loss program for you.
