The Medallion Beach, a Diet Shake Recipe

Serves 3 for about 100 calories each

2 cups of ice cold skim milk
1 ripe peeled banana

1 Tablespoon of rum extract

1 - 2 Tablespoons of Quick ‘Banana’ powder

You will also need about 1/4 cup of crushed ice OR you can slice the banana and place into the freezer for about one-half an hour. The milk needs to be extremely cold in order to thicken; the crushed ice or the frozen banana will accomplish such.

Blend all of the skinny shake recipe ingredients until frothy. Enjoy while the beverage is still ice cold.

Weight Loss Tips, Low Calorie Recipes for Quick Meals

When on a weight loss plan - quicker is best when it comes to putting a meal on the table. If we allow ourselves to become famished, we're at a higher risk of pitching our weight loss plan into the 'Failed Diet Boneyard'. And who wants that?

Let's take a gander at a few quick meals that Diet Bites has in store for you - containing minimal ingredients but that are filling and will satisfy the dieter in a grand way.

Quick as a Wink Wicked Chili, a low calorie chili recipe

If you are a veggie, then simply omit the beef. Rather than using ground hamburger, we're going to use shredded unseasoned beef - because we want to be the ones that add the seasonings. Look for shredded unseasoned beef at your local market; it will reside beside the cold cuts.

Add 1/2 pound of cooked shredded beef to a deep pot containing a Tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil that has been heated but it's sizzling hot. Also add 1/2 cup of chopped onions and 1/2 cup of chopped bell pepper. Add 1 Tablespoon of ground chili powder and 1 teaspoon of ground cumin. Also add one small bunch of fresh chopped cilantro to the pot. If you don't have fresh but do have dried in your spice rack - the dried will work absolutely fine.

Next, add one medium sized can of dark kidney beans and one medium sized can of red OR pinto beans. Do not drain the beans; simply add to the deep pot. Add one medium can of Mexican style, petite tomatoes. Heat until bubbly and enjoy with crackers and shredded low fat cheese. Shoot a little chili sauce into the bowl if you wish as well as raw chopped onion.

Quick Gourmet Sandwich, a low calorie sandwich recipe

So day-in and day-out you're enjoying a sandwich and quite loving it. But after a spell, that sandwich looses its appeal. What can we do to take it to another level?

Well, for one we can veer from the standard vegetables of lettuce and tomato to more exciting options - such as spring greens, thin slices of fresh cucumber, and dried sun-ripened tomatoes. We can also add a few sliced black olives and sauteed sliced mushrooms.

And rather than the standard low fat Mayo or the yellow stuff, we can add our favorite salad dressing. Low calorie honey mustard is way-different than plain mustard. And poppyseed dressing that is low in fat is the bee's knees.

Finally, let's take that whole grain bread to the grill. We don't necessarily need to go outdoors to grill; we can use a non-stick pan to 'pan-grill' our whole grain bread.

If you need to keep the caloric values as well as the fat content to a minimum, then you can use the cooking sprays that are olive-oil based or butter-flavored; I do this quite a lot at my house - but at times, I would rather have something more substantial, so I grab the low fat margarine - the 40 calories per serving varieties.

Be sure to prepare your bread before you fill it with sandwich fixings.

Speaking of bread - when those slices of whole grain get boring - then try something different.

There is a whole wide world of breads out there - pumpernickel, Jewish rye, New York Rye, Russian Rye, pita or kangaroo pockets, ciabatta bread, whole grain rolls, honey oatmeal bread - and we could go on forever.

Quick Chicken, a low calorie diet recipe

You will need strips of lean chicken breast to prepare this recipe. Marinate in your favorite low calorie, low fat salad dressing. We enjoy the poppyseed variety - and it really tastes lovely on the chicken.

Another favorite is ultra low, 5 calories per serving balsamic vinegar. Speaking of vinegar - all flavors make great marinades for meat proteins.

Marinate the lean chicken for at least an hour in your refrigerator. Remove and cook on the stove top in a non-stick pan using just a bit of extra virgin olive oil. Cook the meat until it is a beautiful golden brown on both sides and of course, thoroughly done in the middle yet still moist.

From here we can take our recipe into a billion different ways. We can add it to salad along with dried fruits and nuts to create a gourmet salad.

We can cut the chicken into cubes and add it to a casserole dish. We can simply enjoy it as prepared with a serving of our favorite vegetables and whole grain bread.

That's the key in making weight loss more doable; taking food to a place where we'll be satisfied with what we are eating.
