About my Blog

I was extremely skeptical of this diet until my reproductive endocrinologist suggested I do it since nothing else had worked to allow me to ovulate in 9 years. I started ovulating immediately after doing the 40 days of Phase 2 and got pregnant within 2 months! Not to mention I lost tons of weight too! This diet also allowed me to lose the baby weight.

HcG diet recipe phase 3 P3: LOADED CAULIFLOWER

I've seen many Loaded Cauliflower recipes float around.
This is the one I came up with.

6 C cauliflower florets, steamed or boiled for 8-10 min
8 strips bacon, cooked & crumbled
3 T snipped fresh chives
1/2 C plain, nonfat Greek yogurt
1/2 C sour cream
1 C cheddar cheese, shredded
1 t sea salt
1 C sliced mushrooms
1/2 C chopped onions
1 t garlic
1 T olive oil

3 T snipped fresh chives
1 C cheddar cheese, shredded

Sautee mushrooms, onions & garlic in olive oil until soft & browned. Mix cauliflower, bacon, chives, yogurt, sour cream, cheese, salt & sauteed vegetables in a baking pan. Top with remaining chives and cheese. Bake in preheated oven 425° uncovered for 15-20 minutes.
Serve immediately.

HcG diet recipe phase 2 P2: Strawberry Spinach Smoothie - Complete meal on the go

Although I am a purist sticking closely to Dr. Simeon's protocol, I have found a few variations that work extremely well for me. For example, 1 C plain non-fat Greek yogurt for a protein. (I get mine at Costco.) I'm on my 3rd week of the 6 week protocol currently and I lost 1.4 lbs this morning from yesterday morning. My average is .8 lb per day so I'm not being hindered by it at all.

This is a great choice for when you're on the go or to put in an insulated cup so that you have it cold for later on. Sometimes I pick up a large size cup of ice from Sonic and put the smoothie in there. Love it.

2 C fresh spinach leaves - I usually do 2 handfuls
4-5 medium strawberries, hulled
1-2 cubes ice - optional
1 C plain, non-fat Greek yogurt
1/2 - 1 C water
stevia, to taste

Blend until smooth.
