Default Competition Recipes

Depending on what stage of contest prep you are in (and what your specific nutrutionist/trainer allows) these are some of my favorite recipes

POPCORN TIME!
pop 1/2 cup kernal popcorn in air popcorn machine.
spray lightly with MCT oil
sprinkly lightly with your favorite 'light jello powder'
**my favorites are strawberry and raspberry
Then spray lightly with MCT oil again. Mix up the popcorn and repeat above procedure.
(the reason you spray MCT oil again is because the jello powder makes you cough if you don't) (shrug, I am not sure why but it just does for me)

Competition Pumpkin Pie

1 oz of oat flour (grind up rolled oats in food processor)
8 egg whites
1/4 cup canned pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
1 tbsp splenda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
**I am not a fan of cloves or allspice but you can use these or buy the 'pumpkin pie' spice

Combine all above ingredients and spread in a non-stick small fry pan with Pam and cook on low heat then flip. If you let one side cook longer than the other on VERY low heat, you will end up with it's own 'crust'.

You can eat this by dipping it into Atkins Maple Syrup or Carey's Diabetic Syrup or E.D. Smith's No sugar added syrup.

Enjoy! Even my husband likes these and he is not a competitor! nor does he like most of my food.

Competition Lemon Muffin

1 1/2 oz oat flour(grind rolled oats in food processor)
5 egg whites
1/4 pkg of sugar-free lemon jello powder

Combine and cook on low heat by adding combination above to a small non-stick fry pan until lightly browned. Flip and cook on other side.

Dip in any sugar-free (sweetened with splenda) type of syrup for an added treat.

Variation:
Use sugar-free strawberry jello powder for a different flavor and if it is your off-season you can add poppyseeds which are GREAT with the lemon version of this muffin/pancake

248 cal Plus whatever the calorie count is of the sugar free lemon jello powder brand you use.

Spaghetti Time!

1 Spaghetti Squash (cut in half length-wise)
1 cup Green Pepper (chopped)
1 cup Onion (chopped)
3 cups Mushrooms (sliced
2 cups Tomatoes (chopped)
2 tbsp Italian Mrs. Dash
1 tbsp crushed garlic (costco sells it in a jar)
1 tbsp Onion Powder
1/4 cup Balsamic Vinegar
1 tbsp Splenda

Scoop out inside seeds and pulp from squash and lay face down on plate. Partially cover and microwave it for 8 minutes...turning once part way through.

While squash is cooking combine onion, green pepper and mushrooms in fry pan sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Saute' and once these ingredients are tender, add the next ingredients on the list. Add spices and vinegar to taste.

Scoop out the cooked squash (should look like spaghetti noodles) and put 1 cup on a plate. Spoon sauce over top and walla, you have spaghetti!
Enjoy!

Oriental Chicken

On a plate sprinkle 2 tsp each of:

Cinnamon
Ginger
Brown Sugar Twin
Garlic Powder

Mix with a fork. Coat each chicken breast in this mixture and set in your Foreman Grill...as the chicken is done grilling....make 4 slices in each breast with a and pour balsamic vinegar in the slits. Put lid down and continue grilling....the juice that drips from the grill can be used as a great sauce for dipping later.

Enjoy! this is my favorite so far. Even tastes better if you cut chicken in strips before coating them and grilling them.


Potatoe Omlette


Grate 1 potatoe and spread in a heated pan sprayed with Pam.

Season with Mrs. Dash.

Cook until brown and then flip.

In another pan sprayed with Pam and heated, saute some onion, green peppers, mushrooms and season with Mrs. Dash and pepper to taste.

Transfer onion mixture to Potatoe Pancake looking concoction and spread onion mixture on 1/2 of the pancake. Fold other 1/2 over it and sprinkle with very low-fat cheese. delicious!

Competition Bar-B-Q Sauce

1 cup onion (finely chopped)
1 cup green pepper (finely chopped)
garlic (add as much as you want)
1 cup finely chopped celery (optional)
1 cup finely chopped fresh mushrooms (optional)

saute above ingredients in pan using only 'pam' cooking spray and Mrs. Dash to season then add:

4 cups crushed tomatoes (either crush fresh ones yourself or
Primo-no-salt-added canned tomatoes)
1/2 cup vinegar or balsamic vinegar
2 tsp brown sugar twin
1 tsp liquid smoke (mesquite)

Add this 'to taste' I marinate the cubed chicken breast in balsamic or apple cider vinegar, lemon juice and brown sugar twin and 'competition bbq sauce' bring to boil and pour in bottles and use over veggie and chicken shishkabobs.

Balsamic Salad
fresh tomatos
red onion
cucumber
sundried tomato and basil Mrs. Dash
balsamic vinegar

cut vegetables into chunks and mix with balsamic vinegar and mrs dash.

Cauliflower Mock Potatoes

Ingredients
1 large head of cauliflower
2 cloves garlic, minced(or 2 Tbsp roasted garlic)
1/2 small yellow onion (optional)
Kosher Salt
Fresh ground pepper

Method
1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. While you do this carefully saute your onions until they brown. (caramelized)(this part is optional, just adds a bit more depth of flavor)
2. Cut the cauliflower into large chunks including the stem but not the green leaves.
3. Add lots of kosher salt into a large pot of boiling water and then drop your cauliflower in. Lower to a low boil and cook until the cauliflower is fork tender. About 15 minutes.
4. Add your garlic to the onions and cook out slightly (if using rosted garlic just add to the drained cauliflower). Transfer this to your food processor and puree to a smooth paste adding a touch of the water from the cauiflower if needed.
5. Drain the cauliflower and either mash with a fork for chunky or in the food processor for smooth, not to much or it will become gummy.
6. Fold in your onion garlic paste and add salt and pepper to taste

Wow those are great talo, I dont ever plan on competing, but some of those are great anyway. I love smashed cauliflower and depending on your diet you could addin a bit of cheese for flavor too. Yumm!

My simple "pumpkin pie" recipe is just mash some boiled/baked yam, sprinkle butter buds/molly mcbutter, splenda, and cinnamon on there. And viola you have "pumpkin pie filling". You can even just go simple and get the pumpkin pie spice and use that. If you want bit of a crust to it, put it into a pam sprayed small cake pan and bake around 350 for a few miinutes.
