R is for Recipe Contest

Whether you’ve been in the program for six days, six weeks, or six months, you’ve eaten Health One Meal Replacements. They’re tasty, nutritious, and convenient, but there’s only so much you can do with chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, and creamy potato soup… or is there?

  1. I don’t have any recipe but wanted to stop by and say hello, by the way the recipe thing is a great idea!

    not sure if this counts – but it’s easy and definitely fills my occasional desire for chocolate chip cookie dough! So here it is…

    Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
    Meal Replacement – 160 calories
    Additive – 35 calories

    1 vanilla Health One Meal Replacement
    1 tablespoon dry chocolate chip cookie mix (Betty Crocker)

    Mix dry ingredients
    Slowly add water to the consistency of cookie dough – go figure – it is cookie dough {{{smile}}}

    Act like a kid and enjoy some cookie dough!

    p.s. If you’re like me, the dry cookie dough is a temptation. So I have my roommate hide it so that I won’t “sneak” some in the middle of the night.

      Can you freeze this “dough” i love frozen cookie dough! Do the meal replacement mixtures freeze? Anyone know?

    This is my first day on the progam so i’m not ready to submit a recipe – but i’m for sure going to have to work on it… my first attempt, a banana waffle, was a was a huge failure followed by trying to turn the batter into a pancake… mistake number 2. I think i’m going to need this prize in order to figure out how to cook (and not go broke :)).

    My Health One Diet Coach is great, she recommended this site and contest. I was craving filled cupcakes until I thought, “I wonder if I could make one with the MR’s?” Well, here is my recipe for

    Sweet Chocolate Cupcakes
    Use 3 MR’s (2 chocolate, 1 vanilla)
    mix in 1 T. diet hot chocolate mix
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon vanilla

    Then, add 3 Tablespoons of unsweetened apple sauce, and blend together

    Add in enough water to make a “cake mix batter” consistency and stir.

    Place cupcake liners into standard-sized muffin tin and fill 2/3 full with batter.
    Bake at 350 degrees for 7 minutes
    Then, place 1 teaspoon of sugar free jelly (I like blackberry or raspberry) in the center of each cupcake. Press down so the filling is set inside.
    Return to oven and continue baking at 350 degrees for 5-7 minutes, until done inside.
    Makes 6 YUMMY, filled cupcakes.

    First thing I’ve baked with a MR THAT I LOVE!!! Just threw it together and it’s super tasty!!

    Cinnamon banana waffles:

    1 vanilla MR
    1 T. Bisquick complete pancake waffle (26 cal)
    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/2 T. sugar free, fat free banana cream pudding mix (5 calories)
    1/2 teaspoon Molly McButter (2.5 calories)

    Add enough water to get a semi-thin batter consistency, and pour into waffle maker. Mine cooked in 1-2 mins in my waffle maker.

    (note- they aren’t super fluffy, and they bake dark, but they are yummy! at least to me…)

  7. […] congratulations to Sarah and Joyce, the winners of the Needless Pounds Recipe Contest!  Sarah won a box of Health One Meal Replacements, and Joyce won a Hungry Girl Cook Book!  Their […]
