It’s June and many people have been participating in our Philadelphia medical weight loss program and have already gotten their body ready for the beach. But if you don’t have your beach body yet here are a few recipes that when combined with our medical weight loss program can help you lose 2 to 5 pounds a week just like most of our patients do.
These are some of the recipes that I myself have enjoyed while dropping from 247 lbs to 177 lbs over the past few months.
Fruity Smoothie for Two:
- A half cup of blueberries
- 1/4 cup of cherries
- 1/4 of a small banana
- 6-8 ounces of unsweetened almond milk or any non-dairy milk
- 1 handful kale
- 1 tablespoon of coconut butter
- 1/4 cup of flax seeds
- 1 teaspoon of butter
- 4-6 ice cubes
Combine all of the ingredients into a blender and enjoy.
Chocolate Nut Muffin
- 2 tbsp ground hazelnuts / hazelnut meal
- 1 tbsp unsweetened raw cocoa powder
- ⅛ tsp baking soda
- 2 tbsp of Stevia
- 1 large egg
- 1 tbsp extra virgin coconut oil or butter, melted
- 3-5 drops liquid stevia
- Can add 1 tbsp reddiwhip or greek yogurt and sprinkle a touch of cinnamon
Place all the dry ingredients in a mug and mix thoroughly. Add the egg, coconut oil and stevia and mix well using a fork. Microwave on high for 70-90 seconds. After it is cooked you can add reddiwhip, greek yogurt and even top with cinnamon.
Blueberry Cheesecake Candies
- 1/2 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen – or any berry that you like
- 3/4 cup cream cheese, softened
- 1/4 cup butter or coconut oil, softened
- 2 tablespoons of stevia
- 1 vanilla bean OR 1/2–1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Cut the butter and cream cheese into small pieces and place in a bowl. Let it sit for 30-60 minutes and soften at room temperature so that is is soft but firm. Place the strawberries into a blender and pulse to a smooth consistency. Then add the powdered stevia, vanilla extract and mix well. Add the softened butter and cream cheese. Pulse everything so that it is blended nicely and creamy smooth. Then spoon out the the tasty treat into small tins or candy molds. Put this into the freezer for about 2 hours or more until everything is set.
