Scarsdale dieters ideas, recipes and more...

Toast up some protein bread (I use 2 slices)
spread on a little tomato puree
top with lots of cooked spinach
(seasoned with garlic & squeezed dry)
then top with cheese
Then I pop it in the oven until it gets hot and melted
(you have to watch it so it wont burn).
When it comes out of the oven you can add some oregano, crushed red pepper, and parmasean cheese
"Here is another variation on the tomatoes....
Hot tomato salsa Onion dry fried in a non stick saucepan, add chopped tomatoes, basil, red wine vinegar, garlic and some sweetner (if needed to taste)....
it is lovely hot and goes really well with the chicken and fish dishes :)"- Caroline
"I do like to experiment with spices and vinegars for variety. Here's a few of my favourites from past diets.
  Tomatoes Indian Style - curry, salt & pepper. A wee bit of dill pickle juice.
  Tomatoes Mexican Style - chili pepper, cayenne pepper, salt & pepper, lime juice.
  Tomatoes Greek Style - basil, parsley, garlic, dehydrated onion, lemon juice. -Darlene

"the 1st day on the SMD,I made fish with 1 clove of grated garlic, a bit of grated ginger, leek, mushrooms in japanese soy sauce in the oven...." -Yunah
"For Friday lunch a portabello mushroom to top with spinach and cheese, since dinner calls for as much vegetables as you want."
"I also make deviled eggs on Thursday by scooping out the yolks from  hard-boiled eggs, add dijon mustard, salt, black pepper, cayenne and lemon juice. Stuff the eggs with this mixture and sprinkle with finely chopped cilantro." -Simone 
Some ideas for salads:
Toasted bread as croutons (toast, spritz lightly with garlic cooking spray and pop in the toaster oven to crisp up);...
Dice up tomato, cucumber and add dash of salt, pepper and vinegar. Let sit at room temp for 5 minutes to release juices, creating a flavorful dressing.

Spinach Fritatta (Keep Trim)
1 egg and 3 whites (3 whites still has less fat and cals than one egg), blended that with 1/4 cup of cottage cheese. I sauteed tomatoes, zuccini and a few mushrooms with garlic, then added the egg mixture and made a fritatta. HUGE and filling!!

Spinach Dip
I sauteed garlic and about 1 1/2 cups spinach. I added cinnamon, salt and pepper to that. Then in a blender mixed 1/2 cup low fat cottage cheese and about 3 Tbl water. Then added the cottage cheese and about 3-4 Tbl of low cal parmesan cheese to the spinach. So basically a hot spinach dip.

"I just bought a Foreman grill because others in this group raved about
it, and I love it! I grill chicken or fish without sauces, but then
top it with a fat-free cilantro pesto that I make in the blender, or
if fruit is allowed that meal, I use some to make a mango, pineapple
or papaya salsa."--Simone
