3 Low Carb Recipes for Fast Weight Loss with Medical Weight Loss in Philadelphia

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.

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

  • 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

  • Ingredients
  • Swerve – 1 cup
  • unsweetened cocoa powder – 3 tbsp
  • vanilla extract – 1 teaspoon

Take a nice sized bowl and mix together your extracts, sweeteners, coconut oil and of course your cocoa powder. Mix it together until it forms into the shape resembling small breadcrumbs. 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.

My younger nieces love gummy worms so my wife found a cute gummy worms tray that we pour this mixture into and make it for them. Now we are ready to set them in the refrigerator and keep them there until they are from. This recipe makes one serving and the total serving has about 20 cal, 6 grams of protein and 0 carbohydrates.

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.

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
  • Gluten-free tamari sauce– one tablespoon
  • Dry mustard– 1 tablespoon
  • Minced garlic clove – one clove
  • Sea salt– 2 teaspoons
  • Ground black pepper – 1 teaspoon
  • Liquid smoke– one teaspoon
  • 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.

Low Carb Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars

  • You will need:
  • Aluminum pie baking pan – tin foil baking pan
  • Virgin coconut oil – 4 tbs
  • Coconut butter also called coconut manna – 3 tbs
  • Peanut butter – 1/4 cup
  • Combine all of the above until it’s smooth and then add:
  • Then add
  • Cocoa powder – 2 tbs
  • Swerve – 2 tbs
  • And mix everything until it’s totally combined. You can add sliced almonds over top and then place in the freezer for 2 minutes. Then remove from the freezer and break apart. You can store this in the refrigerator.

This chocolate and peanut butter bar recipe does have a lot of calories but it is super delicious and low in carbs. So just make sure that you are watching your portion size for this delicious peanut butter and chocolate treat.

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.
