Miscellaneous Core Recipes And Links!!

Recommended Posts

Hey, Core buddies! How about if we post LINKS to recipes here that are Core-friendly? We could:

 

1. Provide LINKS here on this thread to recipes you've found in the other recipe threads, or elsewhere on the web.

 

2. Post a new recipe in the appropriate category here in one of the recipe threads, and post a LINK to it in this thread.

 

And other ideas about helping to organize Core-friendly stuff is ALWAYS welcome!!

For fun I've been spending some of my free time working on compiling a list of a few core friendly recipes for my personal site. You can go there here: core friendly recipes

 

I'll probably be adding some from this list :embarrass :p :o

Hey Katie :wave:

 

Thanks so much for this thread. When I got my new WW materials today, all I could think was :help: !!!!! In other words.........how am I going to make this programme interesting????:confused:

I must admit, I'm eating core maybe 60% of the time now.........but to go with CORE the full 100% kinda scares me a bit. Given time, I'm sure CORE will become second nature to us !!!! These recipes and links will sure make that journey a little easier.

Karen :D

You go, Karen! I'm finding this to be quite a fun challenge---I've always loved a good one! I went to the grocery store today with my new Food Companion looking for Core-friendly stuff and got a few really good finds that I'm anxious to try.

From the WW board:

 

 

 

Oat pancakes or waffles

POINTS value | 7 (if counting flex pts)

 

 

Servings | 4

 

Breakfast |

Ingredients

 

2 cup Oat flour (2 1/2 cups old fashioned oats pulsed in the blender or food processor to make the flour--flex points were based on the 2 1/2 * of oatmeal)

2 large egg(s)

1 cup fat-free skim milk

1 cup water

1 1/2 Tbsp canola oil

3 tsp baking powder

1 tsp vanilla extract

 

Instructions

 

Warm pan or griddle to medium with 1 teaspoon butter or oil. Add dry ingredients together and mix lightly. Next add milk and water; stir. Add oil and 1 egg at a time. Mix thoroughly. Pour 1/2 cup mix at a time for pancakes or 1 cup at a time on hot waffle iron.

 

Apple Topping--

I took 4 apples sliced thin and 'fried' in a hot pan sprayed with non-stick spray, sprinkled with ground cinnamon, ginger and cloves and a couple shakes of Molly McButter for a buttery flavor.

I don't want to post a link because there are too many ...

 

Almost all of the 0-pt. Soups will be Core, and so will some of the 1-pt. (and higher) soups (depending on where the points come from). Those that aren't should be easily modifiable. Look under Soups, Stews, and Chowders, and ask it to show all posts.

 

Soup is a great filler-upper.

Core Kettle Corn

 

1 tsp. Canola oil

1 tsp. Splenda

¼ cup popcorn

 

Mix oil, Splenda, and popcorn together in a microwave corn popper*. Stir to coat popcorn. Microwave til done (mine takes less than a couple minutes). Watch it carefully so it doesn’t burn. Salt to taste.

* I use the Orville Redenbacher brand popper but without the attachment that comes with it
