Special K Recipes
Milton Said:some good recipes to use with the special k diet?
We Answered:Well, consider that for 2 meals, you're eating carbs. Then for your third meal, you should omit them. It's not necessary to eat them for dinner. If your third meal is dinner then a lean protein and 2 vegetables would be ideal. Some options:
Grilled fish with roasted zucchini and a salad
Broiled chicken breast, steamed broccoli, and squash.
Thinly sliced flank steak with peppers and onions
Here's a good recipe you might enjoy:
***Chicken Stir Fry Wraps***
1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, halved horizontally and thinly sliced
Coarse salt and ground pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion, halved and thinly sliced
1 large red bell pepper, ribs and seeds removed, thinly sliced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 teaspoons grated peeled fresh ginger
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon red-pepper flakes
3 tablespoons soy sauce
3 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch, mixed with 1 tablespoon water
12 to 16 Boston lettuce leaves (about 2 heads)
Season chicken with salt and pepper. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over high heat. Add half the chicken; cook, stirring constantly, until opaque throughout, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Repeat with remaining chicken.
Add remaining tablespoon oil to pan, along with the onion and bell pepper. Cook, stirring constantly, until onion is tender and golden, about 4 minutes (reduce heat if browning too quickly).
Reduce heat to medium; add garlic, ginger, and red-pepper flakes; cook, stirring, until fragrant, 30 to 60 seconds.
Stir in soy sauce, vinegar, and cornstarch mixture; remove from heat. Add chicken and any accumulated juices; toss to coat. Serve in lettuce cups.

4 cups buttermilk
5 cups flour

1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup nuts (optional)
5 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons salt
1. Preheat oven to 400 - degrees F.
2. Grease or paper a muffin tin.
3. In a large bowl, combine shortening with sugars. Stir in eggs and then gradually add buttermilk. Stir in remaining ingredients (flour - salt) just until blended. Spoon batter into muffin tin, filling 3/4 full. Bake for 20-30 minutes. Remaining batter can be refrigerated in an airtight container.
