    I'd like to know this too. What options are acceptable to use. I just realized balsamic vinegar is NOT! ooops I used it on a salad today :(((

    Is 99% fat free chicken broth ok to use to coat the bottom of the pan for chicken/fish to cook in?
    Any suggestions are appreciated!

    balsamic vinegar is fine! and so is broth. They are condiments.. used in moderation.

    :bannana: YAY!!! I love my hot sauce, mustard, a little balsamic, salsa, etc. etc. So, NOW my question (a little nit-picky, I know, sorry!) is what is 'moderation' to you ladies? Is a little mustard or vinegar or salsa, etc. (1-2 T) ok with each meal, or should I be doing some meals more plain? To me a little salsa can go a loooooooong way in helping a meal, but I don't wanna be over-doing it...I often think to myself, "tighter diet = tighter body," but the flavor helps so much! How much condiments do you ladies use in total for the day? Thanks!

    Linda Salad Wraps

    My new favorite recipe, Linda Salad Wraps. Thanks to my hero, the incomparable Linda Lloyd.

    Subs for my meal that consists of chicken breast, avocado, and fibrous veggies.

    1. Dice raw red bell pepper, celery, zucchini and any other veggies you like, according to your on-plan amount.
    2. Mix in your serving of diced chicken breast and avocado.
    3. Toss in a vinaigrette made from Dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar and 1 packet of Stevia. I like a good tangy dressing, so I mixed about 1 tsp Dijon mustard, to 2 tbsp vinegar.

    Wrap in 3-4 large romaine lettuce leaves, and NOM! A lot of taste, and volume! You could even make it a day before, as the acid helps keeps the avocado green.

    Thanks LL! Enjoy!

    I love using a curry powder blend when cooking up my ground turkey. Lots of curry flavor without the fat and calories of the curry sauce. It is great with sweet potatoes or you can add a quick stir fry of mixed veggies.

    I like to pound my chicken breasts with a rolling pin so they cook quicker (put the chicken between plastic wrap), I sprinkle some dukkha on them first, gives them a bit of a flavour boost & the pounding makes sure it sticks.

    For tuna some Cajun dry spice rub before grilling for a kick.

    For my sweet potato I usually spray them with a little olive oil and toss through with a Moroccan seasoning.

    If you're allowed starchy carbs at this meal you can also sub oats for bread crumbs. A little bit goes a long way, so you can most likely still have your rice/sweet potatoes/etc. on the side! (reduced portions obviously)

    Add 1/2 tsp baking powder, dash cinnamon, 5g trutein to egg mixture, mix with fork.

    Add water & 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk to oats w/ cinnamon. Let oats soak.
    Measure out 63g fresh strawberries, chopped, & add to oats.

    For anyone who has oats for breakfast and is making muffins or pancakes try soaking your oats overnight in cold water or chai tea. The oats more than double in size, it makes for a lovely soft more pancakey texture and I am getting up to 10 medium pancakes out of this if I whip my egg whites up.

    It also gives you more muffins with a nice soft soufflé like texture.

    My oat mixture is 280gm oats
    3.5 tsp each of baking powder, xantham gum and mixed spice
    Big pinch of salt

    Whizz up, weigh and divine into 7 zip lock bags for a weeks worth of oats.

    I have found that even just soaking the oats in your egg whites for a few hours does the trick! Sometimes before bed I'll mix together my oats and egg whites, seal container and leave in fridge over night and make my pancakes the next morning. And it does make it more voluminous!
