The Inferno 3.0 Diet Plan Recipe: Sinless Chocolate Cream Cheese Sandwich

This recipe is long overdue since quite a lot of people including foodies like Chantal Royer has been demanding for the recipes since I post up the pictures of the end product over in Facebook. Sorry…I didn’t take the exact measurements of the ingredients I used when I made it. It was actually a spur of the moment thing as I was craving desserts really badly, especially baked chocolate cakes and cookies, so I thought I might as well make an Inferno version (meaning, ingredients used are within the Ignition list). A diet is no fun when one can’t have desserts that one loves. It makes it easy for one to fall off the wagon. That’s why there are cheat meals from third weeks onward too. To stave the cravings, to trick the body (and mind) and to keep you on the diet wagon. Lets look at what’s been making everyone demand for a recipe:

I’ve been told that it looks like whoopie pies…I’ve never ate one really so I wouldn’t really know but I can tell you it tastes like rich chocolate bread with cream cheese filling.

Here’s the recipe:

Sinless Chocolate Cream Cheese Sandwiches

choccreamcheese The Inferno 3.0 Diet Plan Recipe: Sinless Chocolate Cream Cheese Sandwich

 

Ingredients


5 tbsp protein powder, preferably chocolate or just plain

2 tsp 100% cocoa powder

3 egg whites, 1 egg yolk

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

2 tbsp sweetener

1 tbsp nonfat yogurt

Instructions

1. Mix the dry ingredients together, then add in the eggs and yogurt.

2. Stir vigorously (or use a hand mixer) until well combined. The batter is supposed to be sticky and not watery. If it’s watery, add a bit more protein powder.

3. Drop the batter on a baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper.

4. Bake at 180°C for about 10 minutes. Remove and leave to cool. Makes about 10 pieces, depending on how big you want it to be.

For the filling

Ingredients

1/2 cup nonfat cottage cheese (I used homemade cottage cheese, made from skim milk so it’s nonfat and quite dry)

3 tbsp nonfat yogurt

2 tbsp sweetener

Instructions


1. Mix it all together. If you prefer it to be sweeter, just add more sweetener. Just remember, sweeteners (including Stevia) have a bitter after taste so use moderately.

2. Scoop one tablespoon and use as filling for each sandwich.

This is how popular these babies are when I took it to bootcamp….

Enjoy!

Other tips:

If you don’t like chocolate, you can use plain protein powder, skip the cocoa powder and add vanilla essence instead.

The Inferno 3.0 Diet Plan Recipes: Lazy Yummilicious Chicken Curry

You will probably have noted I have this thing for spicy food…well, I do have a thing for spicy food. I can’t live without chilies and some spice to my food. It is NOT a proper meal if I don’t get to eat anything spicy! Heck, I even eat chili when I have a sorethroat or down with fever. So yes, I have a chili-addiction but I guess it’s okay because I read somewhere that it’s actually quite good for the metabolic rate (actually I posted about it here). Not that it’s helping me much but still. Heheh.

Anyway, last night I did a lazy yummy chicken curry. Lazy as in, I used the least ingredients and dump everything to my favourite sous chef: the slow cooker. Yes, the slow cooker is a very versatile kitchen equipment. It’s not only to make soups but you can use it for a whole host of other sorts of cooking. Such as creating this:

I know. It looks like the real thing right? And no, in case you are wondering, you don’t need to get a million ingredients to blend and mix to make this curry! Ok, confession time. It may look good and smell heavenly (imagine waking up to the smell of simmering chicken curry…YUMZ) but it doesn’t really taste like the real thing. However, it still tastes good. It’s a great alternative (to the real thing) and the best part, EASY to cook!

Here it is:

Lazy Yummy Chicken Curry Recipe

(Makes 2 – 3 portions)


Ingredients

2 pieces of chicken breast meat, cut into thick chunks

a few pieces of chicken liver (that is if you like liver)

3 – 4 dried chili

1 cinnamon stick

1 tbsp kunyit (turmeric) powder

2 small onions, chopped

half clove of garlic, chopped

2 tbsp chili powder

a dash of sea salt to taste

100ml skim milk (or more if you like it thicker)

1/2 cup water (about 8 tbsp or more)

Instructions

1. Place the chicken into the slow cooker (or crock pot). Put in the cinnamon and dried chilies.

2. Dilute the chili powder and turmeric powder with the water. Add the salt into this mixture and stir.

3. Add the skim milk to the chili mixture and stir.

4. Pour the whole chili and milk mixture over the chicken and make sure it covers the chicken pieces. Sprinkle the onion and garlic over the chicken.

5. Set the slow cooker to low and let it cook (preferably between 4 – 8 hours). Switch it off in the morning and serve hot or store it into several containers.

Other useful tips:

You can stir the mixture a bit before you go to sleep. And since it will be cooking overnight, you can absolutely use frozen chicken pieces! Don’t thaw the chicken, just place the frozen chunks into the pot, add the ingredients and let the slow cooker do the cooking. It’s that easy.

Of course, it’s not as rich or fragrant as the real deal…after all, this is a lazy chicken curry recipe! icon wink The Inferno 3.0 Diet Plan Recipes: Lazy Yummilicious Chicken Curry If you want a really fragrant chicken curry, I can try out with all the required herbs and spices, then I’ll post it up next time.

The Inferno 3.0 Diet Plan Recipes: Healthy Ham Omelette

It’s been three days since I started the Inferno eating plan where all we are allowed to eat are just protein, protein and more protein. Sounds boring? Actually not at all! In fact, I find that there are actually endless possibilities if you know which ingredient to combine with which spice or herbs. Not a cook or you don’t cook much or you don’t have all the time in the world to cook?

No worries, neither do I. Every morning after bootcamp (or home workouts), I’ve only an hour or so to get the kids up, prepare their breakfast, bathe them, prep them for kindy/nursery AND on top of that, prepare my own food, bathe and change before going to work. So, I don’t have the luxury of spending precious time toiling away in the kitchen. My recipes are mostly easy, as simple as possible and fast to prepare.

Usually 5 – 10 minutes prep time max. So, here’s a healthy ham omelette I prepared for my morning break today.

easyhamomelette 1024x1024 The Inferno 3.0 Diet Plan Recipes: Healthy Ham Omelette

It’s what I’d call ‘fast and easy’ food with all the protein requirements that we need for our snack / breakfast or even for lunch / dinner. Whenever you wanna eat it.


Here’s the recipe:

Easy Ham Omelette

Ingredients

2 – 3 slices of lean turkey ham / chicken ham, cut into small pieces

3 egg whites & 2 whole eggs, beaten

dash of dried mixed herbs

dash of black pepper (optional)

Instructions

1. Dry pan fry (without oil!! Remember to use non-stick pan) the ham till it turns brown.

2. Add the dried mixed herbs and black pepper to the eggs.

3. Pour the egg mixture all over the brown ham bits. Set fire to medium low.

4. Let the eggs cook till you can see the bottom is cooked ( a few minutes), then only you flip it and cook the other side. Once done, serve hot or keep for your next meal!

As you can see, it is pretty easy, simple and best of all, so good to eat! One more thing, DO NOT ADD SALT. The ham is quite salty already so adding salt will make the whole omelette salty. Enjoy.
