Cookbook Sneak Peek…
Creative minds have been hard at work assembling a new Skinny Me cookbook for hCG approved meal ideas and it will be finished soon. We will have sections for appetizers, soups, salads, dressings, sauces, vegetables, breakfast, main dishes, crockpot recipes, foil-packet recipes, beverages, and even desserts! Here is a sneak peek at what you can expect in our cookbook…
Foil-Packed Fish & Shrimp
- 1 zucchini, sliced
- 1 yellow squash, sliced
- ¼ cup onion, sliced
- 8 asparagus
- 1 fresh lemon or lime, squeezed
- 1 Flounder (or any white fish)
- 6 medium shrimp, peeled
- 1 package taco seasoning, low-sodium
Preheat oven for 375 degrees. Place vegetables on the foil and squeeze half the lemon or lime juice over the vegetables. Sprinkle the taco seasoning on top of the vegetables. Add the white fish and then the raw peeled shrimp on top of the vegetables and squeeze the other half of the lemon or lime. Sprinkle again with some taco seasoning. Wrap the meal in the foil and place in the oven for about 30 minutes or until the fish is flakey.
*You could grill the fish foil pack instead of baking in the oven.
Serving size is 1.
Crock Pot: Lemon-Garlic Green Beans
- 1 ½ lb. fresh green beans, trimmed
- 3 tablespoons fat free chicken broth
- 3 large shallots, cut into thin wedges
- 6 cloves garlic, sliced
- 1 tablespoon grated lemon zest
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon pepper
- ½ cup water
Place green beans in a 4-quart slow cooker. Add remaining ingredients over the top of the beans. Cook on high for 4-6 hours or on low for 8-10 hours. If you like your beans more crisp check them on high after about 3 ½ hours or on low after about 6 hours. Fresh green beans are sturdy enough to withstand very long cooking temperatures without getting mushy.
Serving size is 4.
Spicy Cucumber Salad:
- 1 whole cucumber; cut julienne style
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons vegetable broth (optional)
- 1 tablespoon green onions; chopped
- 1 clove of garlic; minced
- 1 basil leaf; rolled and sliced
- 1 teaspoon cilantro
- 1/8 teaspoon red chili flakes
- Salt and pepper to taste
Cut the cucumbers in slices. Mix liquid ingredients with garlic, green onions, herbs and chili flakes. Combine with cucumbers and mix thoroughly with spice mixture. Allow to marinade for at least 20 minutes.
