Crab cakes – 100g crab, salt, pepper, old bay, 2 plain melba toasts crushed to a powder, 1 TBSP milk. Makes two cakes. Bake in a glass pyrex dish for 10-15 minutes. Crab is already cooked, so it’s just to get it all warm. YUMMY!

Allotted amount of strawberries
Juice of 1 lemon
Stevia (as needed)

Freeze fresh strawberries about 1 hour.
Blend fresh frozen strawberries, lemon juice & sugar substitute in blender until very well blended.
You can serve immediately or place in freezer to allow it to firm up even further.
TIP: If you don’t want to wait, you can always use your fresh strawberries without freezing them and simply add ice any water needed.

Add the 2 cups water and italian seasonings, black pepper. You can adjust the garlic to taste. Add the Apple Cider Vinegar – vinegar will bring out more flavor in the broth.
Simmer for 35 or so minutes and serve. You can add a bit more water .. the broth will be very flavorful.
This is something I did on Atkins quite a bit, and even served when I wasn’t on a diet because it was just so yummy. It’s a bit like Italian wedding soup, only no pasta!
