    I thought this thread was needed since so many of us are on diets right now. I am copying the diet recipes from both of the recipe threads. Please feel free to post low carb, low fat, sugar free, low cholesterol, diabetic, or any other type of 'special' diet recipes.

    I am placing links to DIET RECIPE sites on here. If you have any, please PM or email me and I will add them to this original post. That way we can keep them all in one place. Thanks!

    Garlic Chicken and Cabbage

    Ingredients:
    1- whole chicken 1/2-to 1- whole red or white onion chopped 3-8- garlic cloves or use garlic salt/powder to you liking salt and pepper to taste. Season chicken and place in crockpot. Add onion and garlice cloves and salt and pepper. Fill crockpot 1/4-way with water, cover and cook on high 6-8 hours. The chicken should fall off of the bone. During the last hour of cooking the chicken, cut up 1 head of green cabbage...I use red also...core removed. Place in a large pot of pan with a shallow amount of water...1/2-to 1-cup. Add two tablespoons of butter or margarine and sprinkle liberally with garlic salt and pepper. Cover and cook on med-high heat for 20-30 minutes. Once chicken and cabbage are done, place some cabbage in a bowl and top with chicken and some of the chicken broth. Talk about yummy. You can alter any of the seasonings and the butter or margarine to your satisfaction.

    Dressed Cabbage (Irish)

    Ingredients:
    Dressed Cabbage (Irish) Cabbage 4 T Butter 3 T Bacon stock or water 1 pinch Nutmeg or mace 1/2 t Flour Pepper Shred the cabbage. Melt half the butter in a heavy pot; then add the cabbage and toss until covered with the butter. Add bacon stock or water,cover and cook gently for about 20 minutes. By this time the liquid should be nearly absorbed, and the cabbage cooked. Add the nutmeg or mace, the flour, and stir well; then add the rest of the butter and toss until melted into the cabbage. Add pepper if needed. by VegasMom

    Cabbage Dump

    Crumble and brown 1 pound ground beef . Drain well.

    Chop 1/2 head cabbage (I usually use a whole head, but I love cabbage). Throw on top of ground beef.

    Dump 1 can diced tomatoes on top of cabbage. Cover and let it simmer until cabbage is tender.

    Top with shredded cheese when done.

    (We sometimes add onions with the ground beef, or use salsa instead of tomatoes, add some sausage in with the ground beef, use varios spices, whatever)

    LOW CARB - LOW FAT - LOW SUGAR DESSERT
    (Easy, cheap, quick, and good)

    2 pkgs. sugar-free Jello
    2-3 TBLS cool whip

    Mix jello per pkg. directions
    Chill and let set

    (I put mine in a 9x13 baking dish. It sets up quicker and then I cut it into cubes)

    Put into bowl and fold in cool whip - keeps well in fridge when in a bowl with a lid.

    (I keep this on hand ALL the time for when I get a craving for something sweet)

    TURKEY FRITTATA

    1 Tablespoon light olive oil
    1/2 onion, chopped
    1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
    1/2 cup chopped cooked cauliflower
    1 cup leftover cooked chopped or diced turkey
    6 eggs, lightly beaten
    1/2 cup heavy cream
    Salt and pepper
    2 tablespoons chopped parsley, basil or cilantro
    1/2 cup grated Monterey jack or mozzarella cheese

    Heat oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Add onion and bell pepper and cook for 3 minutes. Stir in chopped cooked cauliflower and cook until golden brown. Add diced turkey and toss to coat.

    In a mixing bowl beat together the eggs and cream and season with salt and pepper. Pour egg mixture into skillet and stir in chopped herbs. Top with grated cheese and brown under broiler for about 2-3 minutes until the frittata puffs.

    Serves 4 –– 2.8 carbs per serving.

    **Sue's tips**
    1) I used brocolli instead of cauliflower and it worked just fine.

    2) I put mine in the microwave for 3 minutes instead of the broiler.

    3) Heavy Cream substitute (courtesy of Donna) is 3/4 cup milk
    1/3 cup butter melted and cooled
    (use in place of 1 cup Heavy Cream)

    Low Carb Fried Pumpkin Blossoms

    Ingredients:
    1 Dozen Pumpkin Blossoms
    3 Beaten Eggs
    ground pork rinds
    To taste Salt
    To taste Pepper
    1/2 stick Margarine

    Preparation Directions:

    **Pull stems out of center of blossoms**
    Crush crackers and place in a shallow bowl.
    Add salt and pepper to taste. Beat eggs in a second bowl.

    Dredge pumpkin blossoms gently in egg batter, then into the pork rinds.

    The flowers are tender, so it is better to set the blossom in the pork rind bowl and pat on the crumbs. Turn over and repeat.

    Place directly into a frying pan with margarine.
    Cook until slightly brown.

    Remove from pan and place on a paper towel to drain.

    easy baked chicken

    Put chicken, potatoes, onions, peppers, carrots, celery....and anything else you want, into a baking pan. (I use a glass cake pan.) Add a stick of oleo/butter, salt and pepper, or any other seasoning you like, cover with foil, and bake in the oven for about an hour at 350 degrees. I usually will take the foil off after it is done and leave it in the oven so it can sort of brown on the top.
