In our Philadelphia medical weight loss program the number one question that I get is “Why people still have to eat even though the weight loss pills, appetite suppressant medications and diet pills doing a fantastic job of getting rid of people’s cravings and hunger?”
And the answer is that you still need to eat the right types of food to help you lose weight and burn fat safely.
And that is the reason why we spend time reviewing proper nutrition and why we post weight loss tips and recipes every week on this blog. And with that being said here are 5 great recipes to help you lose weight and burn fat. If you are new to our medical weight loss center and would like more information just call us and schedule your free weight loss consultation. Call us at 215-821-7336 for your free consultation.
The recipes I am giving you today are: Pepperoni Cheese Baskets, Parmesan Chicken Balls, Chocolate Macadamia Ice Cream, Chocolate Fluff and Fettuccine Alfredo.
Pepperoni Cheese Baskets*
- pepperoni – 3 ounces sliced into four
- full fat cream cheese – 4 else’s
- sour cream – 1/4 caught
- garlic – 2 cloves of grated garlic
- red bell pepper – 1 ounce of grated red bell pepper
- Tabasco sauce – just a dash
- salt and pepper to taste
Mix your full fat cream cheese, sour cream, grated garlic, red bell pepper, Tabasco sauce and salt-and-pepper until it’s combined in nicely. Take a muffin hand that will allow you to make 4 muffins and line the muffin cups with cling wrap. Next place a slice of pepperoni into the bottom each of the muffin cups and evenly divide your cream cheese and sour cream batter into the 4 muffin cups. After that just placed them in refrigerator for at least 1 hour. After about 1 hour they should be firm enough to eat but I like to leave them in there a bit longer so that the flavors really intensified. When you are ready to eat them just remove them from the muffin cups and you can enjoy them with some delicious veggies. Each muffin has approximately 240 calories and 3 grams of carbohydrates.
Parmesan Chicken Balls*
- chicken breast – 3 ounces of ground cooked chicken breast
- Parmesan cheese – 1 ounce grated
- cheddar cheese – 1 ounce shredded
- full fat cream cheese – 10 ounces
- sour cream – 3 tablespoons
- chili sauce – 1/2 teaspoon
- green onion – 1 green onion minced
- cilantro – 2 tablespoons of finely chopped cilantro
- salt and pepper to taste
Start by putting the sour cream and cream cheese into a bowl and mixing them until they are smooth. After that start in the chili sauce, chicken, Parmesan cheese, cheddar cheese and salt-and-pepper. Kathy then take a plate and mixed together the cilantro and green onion. Now divide your chicken mixture into 12 equal portions and put them onto the herbs. Gently roll each of the first to form balls and then place them in the refrigerator and give them time to set. This is a really fantastic recipe and has only 124 calories and 1 gram of carbohydrate.
Chocolate Macadamia Ice Cream*
- Heavy Whipping Cream – 1 Cup
- Full Fat Cream Cheese – 1 Cup
- unsweetened cocoa powder – 2 tablespoons
- macadamia nut butter – 2 tablespoons
- xanthan gum – 1 teaspoon
- liquid Stevia extract – 1/4 teaspoon or more depending upon your taste
- macadamia nuts – 1 ounce of chopped academia nuts.
We begin this great recipe by placing all the ingredients, except for the nuts, into a food processor or blender and mix until everything is nice and creamy smooth. After that if you have an ice cream maker just charted the ice cream maker or if you do not have an ice cream maker you could just place it in the freezer. Just make sure that it’s in a freezer proof container. If you do not have an ice cream maker you will have to stir this about every normal 30 minutes or so to make sure that it does not crystallize. Let it freeze until you have the ice cream texture that you like. I usually like to take mine out of the freezer for about a good 15 minutes before serving it. When you are ready you can just sprinkle the chopped macadamia nuts over top of the ice cream. This recipe makes six servings. Each serving has approximately 290 calories and 5 grams of carbohydrates.
- heavy cream – 1/2 cup of chilled heavy cream
- cocoa powder – 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
- chocolate liquid Stevia – 5 drops of chocolate liquid Stevia
- French vanilla liquid Stevia – 5 drops of French vanilla liquid Stevia
This is a super easy recipe to make all that you need is to use an electric mixer and just with all of the ingredients together until it is stiff. And if there you have it, two servings of the delicious low-carb and no sugar chocolate whip.
This recipe makes two servings each of them having about 200 calories, 3 grams of carbohydrates and 2 grams of protein.
- fettuccine style tofu shirataki noodles – 1 packet
- cream cheese with chives and onions – 1 tablespoon
- butter – 1 tablespoon
- grated Romano or Parmesan cheese – 2 tablespoons
First we must cook our shiitake noodles, just follow the package directions to cook them properly.(I usually cook my shiitake noodles by first draining and rinsing them. Then I put them in the microwave bowl and microwave them for about 2 minutes and then I drain them. Next I microwave them one more time for about a minute or so and then I trained them one more time.) After you have cooked your noodles place them in a bowl and mix in the cream cheese with chive and onions in the butter and stir everything until they melt and for a very nice smooth sauce. After that to sprinkle with 1 tablespoon of your cheese and stir this end. And you can use the other 1 tablespoon of grated cheese to sprinkle over top. Now all you have to do is eat and enjoy.

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.

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.
