Egg Drop Soup

Hello!

I have a terrible cold, so I made egg drop soup last night. It is the best thing to eat when you are sick and doing the rosedale diet

1 quart chicken broth (I use organic low-sodium chicken broth, or you can use chicken broth)
1 or 2 green onions chopped up
2 eggs
one walnut sized piece of ginger, peeled and sliced (or use 2 teaspoons of the jarred stuff)
1 tablespoon tamari or liquid amino acids
1 tablespoon vinegar (I have rice vinegar, but I have also used cider or white vinegar)
2 high-omega 3 eggs (I use the ones my neighbor gives me!)
Pepper to taste

one can of sliced mushrooms or 4 ounce sliced mushrooms

Optional: fresh or frozen spinach, or frozen or fresh veggies, 1 teaspoon sherry, hot sauce

heat the chicken broth in a saucepan over medium high heat until it boils, turn down heat and add soy sauce, green onions, ginger, vinegar, mushrooms and sherry (if desired). Simmer this together for 5 minutes so the flavors all mix together.

If you are adding veggies, stir in and allow to cook through.

Beat the two eggs completely in some sort of container with a lip (like a glass measuring cup). Stir the soup with a fork and pour in about 1/4 of the eggs into the soup while continuing to stir with a fork. The eggs break up into traditional egg drop soup strands if you do it this way. Or you can pour the eggs through a fork while stirring. Do this 3 more times and serve!

I often add hot sauce to mine.

Yin and Yang Salad

Hello!

I made this tonight, but I used cashew butter instead of peanut butter! Also I eliminated the carrots.

Swiss Cheese and Mushroom Chicken Breasts!

Hello-

This was tonight's dinner. It was pretty quick and wonderful. I will say that I am developing an unnatural attachment to my Hamilton Beach desktop grill, but you could also broil these. This makes two servings.

Two small frozen Boneless Chicken Breasts (or you can use the defrosted ones, but I like putting the frozen ones right on the grill)
Olive Oil
Poultry Seasoning (or you can use cajun seasoning, or lemon pepper seasoning, or any kind of seasoning that doesn't have sugar)
8 large white mushrooms sliced or one small can of sliced mushrooms
2 slices low fat swiss cheese

Use a pastry brush or drizzle olive oil onto the both sides of the chicken breasts. Sprinkle both sides of the chicken breast with seasoning and grill on medium heat for about ten to fifteen minutes, or until cooked through.

In addition, you can grill the mushrooms with a little olive oil and pepper right on the grill.

When the chicken and mushrooms are finished, spoon the mushrooms on top of the chicken breasts and then melt the low fat cheese on top.

I have my poultry seasoning in a shaker so I can't give you an exact amounts on the seasoning. In addition, I also cooked my Brussels sprouts on the grill tonight.

I was down another two pounds today!

Spinach/Pesto Turkey Burgers

Spinach/Pesto Turkey Burgers

I was planning on making a spinach/feta turkey burger tonight, but there was no feta in my fridge.I usually have some pesto in a tube (as well as chopped garlic in olive oil in a tube) so I tried this. Very delicious.

6 to 8 ounces Ground Turkey Breast (you can use regular ground turkey if you want)
2 cups raw spinach OR one cup frozen spinach
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon prepared pesto
Salt and pepper to taste

Steam or microwave spinach, and drain

Mix remaining ingredients, and grill or broil.

Serves 2.

You could probably double everything and add some chopped or ground up walnuts, a tablespoon of olive oil and an egg for a meatloaf--then you would need to bake for about 45 minutes to an hour at 350.

Two recipes from Martasonia

Two recipes from Martasonia! Anyone else who would like to add a recipe is welcome to send me an email.

Please note that everyone interpets the Rosedale Diet in their own way, and not all recipes will work for everyone's diet interpetation.

Avocado Egg Salad:

1 avocado
4 eggs
3 green onions
sprigs of cilantro
red sweet pepper
lemon juice to taste
2 TBSP olive oil
salt and pepper

Boil four eggs (I use cage free high omega 3 eggs) till hard. Immediately
place in cold water for easy peeling. When cooled down and peeled, mash with
one medium avocado. Add a small chopped red pepper and a few sprigs of green
onion. Sometimes I throw in some cilantro too.... add lemon or lime juice
and a couple of TBSP of olive oil, salt and pepper. Mix all well and serve
over greens with a few tomato slices and some black olives. YUMMY and so
good for you.

The second is a recipe for cookies.... not on a daily basis, of course:-)

ALMOND COOKIES

2 cups of ground almonds (I use ready made almond meal)
1 cup all natural no sugar almond butter
1 cup sugar alternative (I use Erythritol and Splenda)
1 egg
1 tsp Vanilla essence
1 TBSP almond essence

Mix all the above ingredients well. I use the food processor, but you don't
have too. A little elbow grease is good for us:-) Put mix in fridge to
chill for a few minutes.

When chilled enough, use two teaspoons to put dollops on a well sprayed
baking sheet. Place in a 350 oven for about 7-8 minutes. Cookies will be
soft and will harden later on. If you want them crunchier, leave for up to
10 min. but they may burn easy, so watch them.

Cool down eat a couple. Store some in fridge and freeze the rest in freezer.

Guacamole Dressing

I use this to get my "good fats" up. It is great on salad!


Guacamole dressing

1 ripe avocado

2 cloves garlic

Juice of one lemon or one lime

1 teaspoon cumin, or to taste

½ onion

salt and pepper to taste

Cilantro to taste

Olive or avocado oil

Place everything in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Add a small amount olive or avocado oil and enough water to achieve the desired consistency. Serve on salad or with veggies immediately.

Turkey/Apple Burgers

This is an adaptation from 500 Low Carb Recipes

1/2 pound ground turkey, perferably breast meat
1 teaspoon sage
1 teaspoon thyme
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 granny smith apple chopped (omit if in stage 1)

Mix all ingredients together. Cook in pan or on electric grill until done. Add a slice of jarlsberg lite cheese if desired and if your protein requirements allow.

Turnip Fries

These are delicious baked turnip fries.

  • 4 turnips, trimmed and peeled (about 1 1/4 pounds)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon parmasan cheese
Pre-heat oven to 425 F. Cut turnips into 2" x 1/2" sticks. Place on a foil-lined cookie sheet. Drizzle with oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper and parmesan cheese. Toss to coat. Spread out in a single layer.

Roast fries 30 minutes, turning halfway through cooking time for even browning. Serve immediately
