I got a quick question: How can I keep my hair smooth and straight during the day? I use a flat iron. Using products from a ?

I also got another question: I'm not good at this and need help from the experts. I'd love to try this recipe so I can eat the same thing as other people..

Found this great recipe but it's high in calories and fat. I suspect because of the olive oil.

I'll post the link too..

Wheat Penne with Roasted Vegetables and Shrimp.

Makes: 6 servings.

1 small cauliflower, chopped.

2 medium red onions, peeled and cut into 1-inch-thick wedges.

3 sprigs fresh thyme.

1/2 pound whole wheat penne pasta.

Freshly ground black pepper.

1/2 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley.

Thanks!..

I cook with olive oil almost exclusively and make many pasta/veggie/protein combos from scratch. The first thing I would do with that recipe is cut the olive oil in half. (The second thing is cut the shrimp, but that's personal preference! :lol)..

Instead of tossing all those ingredients in all that oil, try spraying them with Olive Oil Pam instead? I did this recently with a roasted cauliflower recipe I have, and it seemed to work just fine. (Edit: Or you can try as suggested above, and just cut back on the oil by 1/2 or 2/3 and see how that works.)..

That sounds great! I was wondering if I could make some other sort of sauce that would be lower in calories than using olive oil?..

Comment #3

I haven't found anyway to do this that doesn't involve a spreadsheet. I asked the registered dietitian in my life and she said, yep, it's a lot of work. So here is what I came up with. I've included the logic at the bottom, and I'm not used to working with meat, so someone should check my computation of protein. Hope this methodology helps!.

The way I see it, you are getting (and this is approximate and I'm trying to use equivalents), per person:.

About 2 cups raw vegetables.

One low-glycemic carb serving.

5 servings lean protein.

4 servings Fat.

So I think quebedo and Sarsparilla have it right on what to do to make this recipe more NS-safe..

This is how I got there:.

Ingredient actual measurement per person.

1 small cauliflower, chopped assume 4 cups 2/3 cup.

2 medium red onions, peeled and cut into 1-inch-thick wedges assume 4 cups 2/3 cup.

2 medium carrots, peeled and sliced into 1-inch pieces assume 1 cup 1/6 cup.

2 small Delicata squash, halved lengthwise, seeded and cut into thin half-moons assume 2 cups 1/3 cup.

1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails left on 16 oz 5 oz..

1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved 2 cups by definition 1/3 cup.

1/2 cup dry white wine.

1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil 24 teaspoons 4 teaspoons or fat svgs..

4 garlic cloves, crushed not worth counting .

1 tablespoon ground cumin spice .

1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper spice .

3 sprigs fresh thyme spice .

1/2 pound whole wheat penne pasta ".75 oz. = 1 carb.

So 10-2/3 svgs total" 1-3/4 carb svg..

Freshly ground black pepper spice .

1/2 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley not worth counting .

Coarse sea salt to taste.

Parmesan cheese for garnish use less than 1/4 cup free food.

So I guess about 2 cups raw vegetables.

One low-glycemic carb svg..

5 svgs. Lean protein.

4 svgs. Fat..

Wow, thank you so much for doing that! I really appreciate it!..

Comment #5

I would probably sub in broth-chicken, veg, miso instead of the oil altogether..

And I would also just spray with Pam. Also I found little oil spritzers at whole foods. The one I have now os Truffle oil. Little bottle, not too $, though can't recall price. A few spritzes definitely adds to flavor/smell enjoyment...

Comment #6

When I need to measure serving sizes of a given recipe that can't be cut into slices- I weigh the bowl/container that the food is going to be in, then after the food is prepared, reweigh. Subtract the weight of the container and divide the weight by whatever the number of servings is.

Then I can portion out my own serving by weight...
