Today I share my HCG version of what reminds me of “Chicken Egg Foo Young” and Asian inspired sauteed cucumbers ( I do mix my veggies on P2.) Here is what I used & the estimated calories of 141 calories. In the video I said 123 calories, but I recalculated & it’s closer to 141 cals. These are just estimated amounts & calories, but I try to be as accurate as possible. I hope you enjoy!
First squeeze out the water of thawed frozen spinach & use approx. 60g (approx 1/3c) & combine with 120g.egg substitute ( 1/2 c.) or you could use egg whites, 28g (1oz) cooked diced chicken, 17g of green onions (approx 2), 1/2 tsp. minced garlic, 1/2 tsp.’fresh ginger’, 1/2 tsp.Bragg Liquid Aminos, dash of salt & pepper, stir ingredients then make into 5 patties in your frying pan, I do use a little coconut oil to fry. Brown both sides & serve.
For cucumbers I used one large cucumber approx. 400 grams, cut out the center & season for a cold salad. Saute the remaining cut cucumber in a little coconut oil (optional) season with seasoning of your choice. I sprinkled with Mrs. Dash Garlic & Herb Blend, Bragg Liquid Aminos, Salt & Pepper to taste. I like to cook them until lightly browned but still crunchy.
Here is the approximate calorie break down:
Spinach= 14cals, Egg Substitute= 60cals, 1oz cooked chicken=approx 22cals, green onions= 5cals, 400g cucumber =40cals Total for meal approx 141 calories not including the coconut oil or seasonings.
You can also make them with more of a Mexican flair by switching out the seasonings with cumin, garlic & cilantro. Then top with a little salsa & plain greek yogurt. (optional).
