The mushroom/kale soup recipe, I got from the forum and tweeked it:

Scallions (1 bunch, chopped, greens only) 1.5 carbs
Celery (1 rib) 1.2 carbs
Garlic Gloves (I put in 4) 4 carbs
Chicken broth (4 cups) 4 carbs
Water (4 cups)
Place in a spice bag:  1 cinnamon stick and 1 star anise - let it cook in pot for about 10 minutes then remove).... these two spices give it a nice warm flavor/feel.

At the end of cooking cycle, add:
Kale (5 cups, packed, chopped) 27 carbs
Mushrooms (4 8oz pkg, sliced) 12 carbs
Continue to Cook down probably another 15 minutes.

Let sit to cool down somewhat and then blend it down

Carbs in whole recipe 49.7
Makes 8 large servings for 6.2 carbs each serving

Thanks Tony!! I missed chatting with you too!  :D

Gained quite a bit of weight back, which, if I'd "fallen off the FTS wagon", that would be expected, but I didn't...just making portion size mistakes, I guess! Whatever the case, I'm here now and will continue to work on my weight and overall health!!  :)

Ask Umpa / alfalfa, broccoli, and red clover sprouts?
« on: May 08, 2014, 09:59:24 AM »
Hey sweet lady!! I am back, really never left, just have been silent for a while! lol
I have started growing sprouts in my kitchen with the kids and love them on, in and as my salad (if I have no other greens)! My question is: are the sprouts high in carbs, or are they ok!?! I usually have a romaine salad with 1/2 cup each alfalfa, broccoli, and red clover sprouts w/ 1T. olive oil and balsamic vinegar and I was double checking that the carb count for the sprout part isn't too high!?!
Trying to go more toward vegetarian and less meat, so am looking for alternatives!!
Thanks for your help!
MommaB  :D
