Cabbage Noodle Tuna Casserole – Low Carb, Gluten Free

Before I began doing low carb I loved tuna noodle casserole as a comfort food. This recipe meets that need. After a rough week at work I needed comfort food tonight so I made this. The recipe is below the picture. When I used to make it we were very poor and I used American cheese. I think the next time that I make this I will use either cheddar or American instead of the Parmesan.

Tilapia Veracruz by Trim Healthy Mama

I spent the day with my son and his family and got the joy of holding my newest grandchild, Josie while my son and daughter-in-law cooked my dinner. I took my Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook with me and they made the Tilapia Veracruz that is available on page 70. Their picture of it is much prettier than mine because I just snapped mine with a cell phone. I am down 13 pounds now while following their diet plan and eating mostly meals from their cookbook. I am getting more vegetables than I have been eating for the last few years. I really needed their book to help get me back on the path of regaining my health again. If you haven’t gotten their books yet I highly recommend doing so.

Thin Mint Chocolate Chip Shake

Once again this isn’t my recipe so I will share the link under the pic. My pic isn’t glamorous or fancy. The recipe makes a single serving of almost a quart of shake so I just used a mason jar to drink out of. I had it for breakfast this morning and it was so good that I worried that it would spike my glucose. When I tested two hours later my level was only at 90. I will make this often! I found it in the Trim Healthy Mama cookbook but it is also available at the link below. I highly recommend getting the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook. I am getting fabulous recipes out of it and my glucose is staying close to 100 with each meal.

Caramelized Onion & Bacon Smothered Pork Chops

This recipe is once again not mine. I made it exactly as it was written on another blog so I will post the link under the picture. I am really enjoying doing the Thin Healthy Mama plan and the food is fabulous while the weight is coming off. The plan is big on eating veggies so I am finding unique ways to add them to all of my meals and snacks. This recipe is so simple to make and very light and filling. Another meal made in less than 30 minutes. The brussel sprouts were frozen and I simply heated in the microwave and lightly topped with parmasan cheese. Enjoy!!!

Caramelized Onion and Bacon Smothered Pork Chops

Lemon Butter Scallops

I made this tonight for dinner and it was very good, quick and easy to make. I found it over at another blog and I made it exactly as was given so I am not posting the recipe here. You can easily find it below.  This is not a low carb blog but if you look carefully you will see many low carb recipes.

Avocado Tuna Salad

This recipe is quick and easy and made a perfect lunch for me today after going to the gym and working out. I can’t take credit for it. I found it over at Peace, Love and Low Carb. The only thing that I changed about it was that I left out the onion. I don’t like to crunch into raw onion but that is just a quirk of mine. If you love onion as most people do you will definitely want to add it too.

I know that some people don’t like the fat that is in avocados but this is the good kind of fat. I am buying a couple of these a week and including them in my diet. 🙂

Meatloaf Soup

This week I was at a client’s home and the scent coming from her kitchen was distracting me. It was every bit of heaven and I had to stop discussing insurance to ask her for the recipe. I didn’t get to try it as it wasn’t finished cooking while I was there but I did quickly get all of the  ingredients to make it for myself. This is one of those quick dump into one pot recipes for a quick meal too which is a plus.

I told my sister, Donna about it since David absolutely loves meatloaf she came over to try it too. David loved it as did I and Caleb but Donna didn’t care much for it. So three out four enjoyed the recipe. I hope you do too. By calculations it has come out to 17 carbs minus 5 fiber to make 12 net carbs per serving.

Meatloaf Soup

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 red/purple onion, finely diced
  • 1 can Hunts Meatloaf Tomato Sauce
  • 1 large can tomato juice (I used Kroger brand)
  • 1 bag tri-color coleslaw mix (green cabbage, purple cabbage, carrots)
  • 2 envelopes McCormicks Meatloaf seasoning packets
  • cheddar cheese, shredded

Add onion and ground beef into a large pot and cook over medium high heat until ground beef is browned. Drain grease and add remaining ingredients except cheddar cheese. Cook for 20-25 minutes until cabbage is tender. Spoon into bowls and top with cheddar cheese. Enjoy!
