Pumpkin Protein Pancakes
This recipe is gluten free and dairy free. They give you a little taste of the holidays and fall. They have about 90 calories per pancake and 8 grams of protein. Add it to your breakfast instead of gluten free toast. It also be can be a great mid-morning snack.
Classic Thai Red Curry
This is the easiest recipe and so delicious. I think it is better than the yellow curry Thai dish. You can add a little heat by adding a Thai chili or a sliced Serrano chili. If you cannot find kaffir leaf (lime leaf) squeeze some lime juice into the dish. Asian markets generally have but I have run into problems locating it in an Asian market. Also Thai basil is best but you can use regular basil in a pinch if you cannot find it in an Asian market.
Do you have Turkey leftovers? Use them in this recipe. It won't disappoint. It is loaded with vegetables and if your carbs are limited omit the potato and if you do not like heat omit the jalapeno. Have it for breakfast with a sunny side up egg. You can serve it to your guests that came in for the holiday. If you do not have any leftovers you can use ground turkey or cooked turkey breast..

Transylvania Stockpot with Kielbasas
This must of been Dracula's favorite snack food in between victims. After all, it is named after his home town. In fact, he may have used this warm hearty dish to lure in his victims from the blistery cold streets of Transylvania. Even now the aroma may warm the Count by allowing him to reminisce "the good old days" when all it took was a warm soup to get his victims off the streets rather than a pair of Louis Vuitton. This is an easy hearty soup that will warm the coldest of souls and is perfect for the season. Use the Healthy Choice brand to eliminate the added carbs and fat with the sausage or try a smoked chicken or turkey sausage. Enjoy!
Spinach Mushroom Souffle
Want something that looks fancy to impress and tastes delish? Try this spinach mushroom souffle. This one has savory spinach and mushroom but you can use what you have on hand. If it deflates after coming out of the oven it will still be delicious. A nice healthy substitute for Yorkshire Pudding. Never fails to impress!
The marinade is the secret to fabulously tender, juicy meat that can stand on its own. Grilling gives it a smoky flavor but I cook these in a cast iron skillet. It helps caramelize the vegetables and the meat. If you are grilling I would use a basket to put the meat in and then use a skillet to cook the vegetables. You can also use beef, bison or even venison as the protein. When cooking chicken I allow for about 20% shrinkage. Hence, the recipe calls for one and quarter pound to allow for one full pound of cooked protein.
