Today, I have 4 totally fantastic recipes for you today and they are: Avocado Egg Cups, Cheesey Zucchini Hashbrowns, Antipasto and Cheese Wrapped in Prosciutto and Fried.
Of course these are not your typical diet foods and that’s part of what makes our program so unique from other Philadelphia DIet Programs.
Here are the recipes:
Avocado Egg Cups*
- a large avocado sliced in half and remove the pit
- eggs – 2 large eggs
- fresh ground black pepper and sea salt
- Additional Ingredients
- tomato – 1/4 cup of diced tomato
- red onion – 1 tablespoon of diced onion
- any herb that you like – parsley or cilantro or any other herb of your choice
Start by preheating your oven to 350°F. Place your avocado hands with the cut side up in a baking dish or any other type of oven safe skillet. Crack open your egg and place it into the center and each of the avocado halves and then sprinkle your pepper and salt over top. Next let’s place this any of and for approximately 13 – 21 minutes – until the eggs cooked. When it is finished cooking just take it out of the oven and top it with any of the other additional toppings or even some of your own toppings that you really like.
This recipe makes two servings each of them has approximately 470 cal, 9 grams of protein and approximately 10 grams of carbohydrates. Go to sleep
Cheesey Zucchini Hashbrowns*
- zucchini – 4 cups of shredded zucchini
- Sea salt – 2 teaspoons
- egg – 1 large egg beaten
- Parmesan cheese – 1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
- green onion – 2 tablespoons of chopped green onion
- black pepper – 1/2 teaspoon
- butter – 1/4 cup
This is a really great recipe let’s begin by taking the zucchini and mixing them in a bowl with the salt. After everything is mixed together nicely just let this sit for about 14 minutes. And then drain any extra liquid out of it. Next we and add the pepper, egg, green onion and Parmesan cheese and mix everything together well. After that place a skillet over medium – high heat, allow the butter to melt and make do zucchini mixture into 4 portions. They should be about 2.5 inches in diameter and a half inch thick. Put them in your pan and let them fry for about 5 minutes per side or for as long as it takes until they are nice and golden brown. Then remove them from the pan and place them on a cooling rack. After the cool down a little bit you can serve them with the holiday sauce.
This recipe makes four cakes and that equals four servings each serving has about 440 cal, 3 grams of protein and about 2 grams of carbohydrates.
- mozzarella cheese – 12 ounces of fresh mozzarella cheese sliced
- extra-virgin olive oil – 2 tablespoons
- chopped fresh basil – 2 tablespoons
- oregano – 2 tablespoons
- ground black pepper and sea salt to taste
- olive – 27 pitted
- salami – 4 ounces thinly sliced
This of course is one of my all-time favorites! First I like to take the cheese slices and place them nicely on a platter and then drizzle the olive oil over top and of course sprinkle over top the oregano, black pepper, basil and salt. Now I just add the salami and the olives and it’s ready to serve. This recipe makes about 6 servings each of them has approximately 280 cal, 4 grams of carbohydrates and 18 grams of protein.
Cheese Wrapped in Prosciutto and Fried*
- coconut oil or olive oil – 2 tablespoons
- unsalted butter – 2 tablespoons
- frozen string cheese – 8 pieces
- prosciutto – 8 slices that are very thin
- any type of herbs that you like – oregano, tarragon, thyme or even sage.
- Marinara sauce
Of course this is another one of my all-time favorites! First I take up and and I heat the oil over medium heat. Then I unwrapped the cheese. Now comes the fun part, wrapped each piece of cheese with one slice of prosciutto making sure that you wrap up the entire piece of cheese including the ends. If you like you can actually now sprinkle your chopped herbs for more of the crust. Then just take each piece of the frozen cheese wrapped in the prosciutto and place it in the pan and just fry it. Make sure that you are turning it often until it becomes a bit crisp and the cheese starts to soften. This happened very quickly you should only take a few minutes. Now all you have to do is set them all the platter let them cool down a bit and you could dip them in the marinara sauce. I do have to say once again this is one of my all-time favorite recipes. This recipe makes eight pieces and two of the make up a serving. Each serving has about 18 grams of protein, 330 cal and 2 grams of carbohydrates.
So there you have four great recipes that are lower in carbohydrates and recipes that are not usually considered diet food.

Now let’s get to those recipes. And this post I’m going to give you the recipes for low carbohydrate versions of an avocado salad, guacamole dip, cheese and pepperoni chips, jalapeno Poppers and blue cheese celery slammers.
Here are the recipes:
- avocado – 1/2 of an avocado
- Olive oil – 2 teaspoons
- line – 1/4 line
- salt and pepper to taste
To make your delicious salad just slice the avocado and half and set the slices nicely on a plate and then sprinkle with the olive oil and squeeze the lime over top. Add the salt and pepper to taste. A nice little gadget that I suggest that you purchase is an avocado slicer. Since avocados are a big part of my daily diet I always make sure that we have plenty in the house. This recipe makes one serving and it only has 9 grams of carbohydrates and 246 cal.
- minced red onion – 1 tablespoon
- crushed garlic clove – 1/2 garlic clove crushed
- a ripe avocado
- 1/4 lime
- Olive oil – 1 tablespoon
- hot sauce – to taste
- salt to taste
- 1/2 tablespoon of minced cilantro
Let’s start by mincing our onion and crushing are garlic and combining them both in a bowl. Cut your avocado in half and scoop out the meat into that ball that has are garlic and minced onion. Mash the avocado with a fork. But do not make it to smooth, you should leave it a little bit chunky. Add your lime juice by squeezing the lime and then add the cilantro, hot sauce, Olive Oyl and salt. I usually like to serve mind as soon as we make it because it really doesn’t last that long. This recipe makes about two servings each of them having approximately 220 cal, 20 grams of fat, 2 grams of protein and 9 grams of carbohydrates.
Cheese and Pepperoni Chips*
- I know, I have you thinking here – what are pepperoni chips? So just continue reading and you will see what I mean.
- pepperoni slices – 1 ounce of pepperoni slices
- whipped cream cheese – 2 tablespoons of cream cheese
Place your pepperoni slices on a microwavable safe plate and microwave them for about 60 – 90 seconds or for as long as it takes for them to be crisp. Now all you have to do is spread the whipped cream cheese over top of them and enjoy. This recipe is for one serving and it contains approximately 200 cal, 7 grams of protein and 2 grams of carbohydrates.
- jalapeno peppers – 2 fresh jalapeno peppers
- cream cheese – 1.5 ounces of cream cheese
- bacon – 2 slices of bacon
First let’s start by slicing open are peppers and remove the stems and scrape out the seeds from the inside. Next put half of the cream cheese into each of the peppers. Then just take your bacon and wrap it around the pepper covering as much of it as you can. You should use a toothpick to keep this together. Next just grill or broil them until the bacon is totally cooked. And now all you have to do is eat them! This makes one serving and it has approximately 215 cal, 7 grams of protein and 3 grams of carbohydrates.
Blue Cheese Celery Slammers*
- cream cheese – 1.5 ounces of cream cheese
- heavy cream – 1 tablespoon
- crumbled blue cheese – 1 tablespoon
- garlic – 1/2 garlic clove crushed
- hot sauce to taste
- celery – 2 large celery reps
Place your cream cheese, heavy cream, blue cheese, garlic and hot sauce into a ball and mix everything together with a fork. Make sure that you stir and mashed together well to have it form a nice dip but be sure to leave a few chunks of blue cheese. When everything is mixed together well just stuff your stalks of celery with the blue cheese mixture and enjoy. This is enough for one serving and each serving has about 230 cal, 6 grams of protein and 5 grams of carbohydrates.

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
- 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
- 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’
- 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.

- ground ginger – 1/4 tsp

Low-Carb Butterscotch Delight Crispy Bars
- Crispy Crunchy for the inside:
- Swerve – 1 cup
- butterscotch extract – 2 teaspoon
- coconut oil – 3 tablespoons
- butter or coconut oil – 1/4 cup
- Swerve or erythritol – 1/4 cup
- stevia glycerite – 1 teaspoon

- unsweetened cocoa powder – 4 tablespoons
- Swerve confectioner – 4 tablespoons
- stevia glycerite – 1 teaspoon
- vanilla extract – 1 teaspoon
- ground sea salt – 1/8 teaspoon
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
- Swerve – 1 cup
- unsweetened cocoa powder – 3 tbsp
- vanilla extract – 1 teaspoon

Start by preheating your oven to 350°F and take a baking sheet and spread parchment paper over top. 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.
- natural sweetener -1/2 to 1 tbsp

Now all you have to do is put in your microwave for about 35 to 50 seconds, just until it starts to boil. Allow it to cool down a little bit and then pour it into a tray. 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.

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.

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
- 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.

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.

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
- 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.
