    something simple, and something with ingredients I can buy at a grocery store rather then having to order online! Any suggestions?

    These can replace traditional side dishes if you wanted to go low-carb:

    Imitation Whipped Potatoes

    This is a great imitation whipped potato recipe. It has a very low glycemic index because it’s made with cauliflower. Use a ‘veggie cream cheese’ or 'tofutti' cream cheese to make this. It’s low in fat (3 g per oz), carbohydrate (3 g per oz) and protein (2 g per oz). You can find both in a supermarket in the refrigeration case with the tofu and soy products.

    Ingredients:

    1 head cauliflower (cut into flowerets, discard the stems. Approx. 4 cups)
    1/2 cup soymilk, or low fat milk
    2-4 tablespoons veggie cream cheese or Tofutti
    Salt to taste
    Pepper to taste
    Garlic and onion powder to taste

    Directions:
    Steam cauliflower until soft, about 15 minutes. Put into food processor, do not over fill. (you may need to do it in two batches. For each batch put in 1/4-1/3 cup soy milk and 2 tablespoons veggie cream cheese.) Process until very smooth, add more milk if necessary, and adjust seasonings and serve.

    Eggplant Dressing / Stuffing

    Ingredients:

    8 slices lite bread - dried and cubed
    1 cup onion - chopped
    2 1/2 C celery - chopped
    1 1/2 C eggplant - peeled and chopped
    3 eggs
    2 chicken bouillion cubes dissolved in 1 1/2 C hot water

    Directions:
    Mix all ingredients together with any seasonings you would usually use in dressing/stuffing.

    Bake 350 degrees for 1 hour in two bread pans sprayed with cooking spray.

    They are both from Zone Perfect

    Recipe Name: Pumpkin Cheese cake

    On: Sep-05-02 03:56 PM

    Email Recipe To A Friend
    Occasion: Any
    Effort: Average



    Ingredients:
    1 8 oz pkg of cream cheese
    1/2 Cup Splenda
    2 eggs

    1/2 Cup pumpkin
    1 tsp pumpkin pie spice




    How to Prepare:

    Cream the cheese and sugar substitute
    Add eggs one at a time, keeping mixture smooth
    add pumpkin and the spice once again mixing until smooth.

    Pour batter into non-stick 6" springform pan (I used a spray to keep the cheesecake from sticking to the sides as well

    Bake at 350 degrees for 55 minutes.

    I found this cheesecake to be really good. Makes four small servings. or two regular size servings

    The carb count is mostly the pumpkin at 9gms per half cup of which 5gms are fiber! I calculate the total carbs if a small serving to be 4.75 of which 1.25 are fiber!

    Hope that you like it. It is quick and easy!

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees

    I got one, I got one!

    Iīm sure others have tried it (because, itīs really basic), but I sort of made it up 2 Christmases ago when there were no sweet potatoes in the stores.

    I guess youīd call it - Mashed sweet carrots?!?
    (I know, not too original, but itīs easy!) Itīs basically mashed potatoes, but with a different vegetable.

    Ingredients -

    peeled carrots
    peeled potatoes (about 1 for every 8-10 carrots)
    butter (to taste)
    milk (to taste)
    salt (to taste)
    pepper (to taste) - I recommend just a wee bit.
    brown sugar - just a wee bit

    Okay, boil a pot of water. Throw the peeled carrots in. Boil until soft (the softer and mushier, the better).

    Drain water and return the carrots to pan. Set on low heat. Mix in the butter, milk, salt, pepper, and brown sugar. Mash with a handheld potato masher. (The electric kind makes it really soupy.)

    It goes really well with stuffing, cranberry sauce, turkey, ham, potatoes, bread.

    Itīs easy to reheat in the microwve or on the stove.

    I also make it every now and then during the week
    with dinner, but Iīll change it a bit. SEE BELOW.

    Itīs also good as baby food - I have a 2 year old and make this for her.

    Other ideas -

    If you want less carbs, you could omit the potatoes.

    You donīt have to make them sweet, you could leave out the brown sugar.

    You could put more milk or even blend it with the electric blender to make it a cream of carrot soup. (I do make it as a soup sometimes as well.) If you do make it as soup, it's nice with croutons and ground black peper on top.

    You can also use cream in place of milk.

    Change the taste. Instead of putting in brown sugar, you could put in one of the following:

    parsley
    cumin
    garlic powder (or garlic sauteed)
    onion powder (or onion sauteed or boiled in the pot with the carrots)
    add a bouillon cube to the boiling water
    parmesan cheese
    a small amount of spinach (cooked in the same pot with the carrots)
    a samll amount of zucchinni,without the skin(cooked in the same pot with the carrots)

    Or maybe, youīll find something else to put in.
    Seriously, itīs easy. And, like I said the softer you cook the carrots, the better.

    Good luck.

    Take care -

    Lynn
