does anyone have any recipes for an easy yet dietetic cake or cookies? I want a very simple one but not a typical one. Thanks!December 23, 2008 3:28 am at 3:28 am #658446
meringue cookies are made with egg whites and a little sugar (or substitute). They have no fat and are relatively low in calories.December 23, 2008 6:51 am at 6:51 am #658447
maybe you can try the kosher by design light? i think thats what its called…December 23, 2008 5:12 pm at 5:12 pm #658448bored@workParticipant
you never know if the things in the cookbooks come out good, keepinentertained, judging by your username you do a lot of baking, so maybe you can give recipes that worked out well for you…December 23, 2008 5:32 pm at 5:32 pm #658449
It’s a good idea to only make healthy cakes, because who has the extra money to spend on taking the cake to the doctor?December 23, 2008 6:34 pm at 6:34 pm #658450
bored@work, funny that that’s what you pulled from my usuer name, but yes i do enjoy cooking and baking…when im not busy with school work and everything else…i would love to share…just let me know what type. and there are lots of other people here too who i know share lots of delicious recipies for anyone who needs.December 23, 2008 6:41 pm at 6:41 pm #658451
sqeak – that was so not funny. and anyway, if you have insurance, the money’s not the big deal, it’s the time.December 23, 2008 7:39 pm at 7:39 pm #658452
brooklyn, I think you misunderstood squeak’s joke which actually made me literally lol like I often do here in the cr (my coworkers must think I’m out of my mind, but then again they may be right).
He wasn’t joking about a person getting sick from eating the cake, he was talking about taking an unhealthy cake to the doctor to help the cake get healthy.December 23, 2008 8:07 pm at 8:07 pm #658453
squeak, errrrr…December 23, 2008 8:12 pm at 8:12 pm #658454
i GOT it, Charlie! how slow do you think I am??? (don’t answer that – i don’t wanna know…) i just didn’t think it was funny.December 23, 2008 8:17 pm at 8:17 pm #658455
brooklyn, when you mentioned insurance that made me think you didn’t get it. sorry.December 23, 2008 8:20 pm at 8:20 pm #658456
well i was answering one poor quality joke with another poor quality joke. (sorry squeak – it wasn’t supposed to get this far!)December 23, 2008 8:21 pm at 8:21 pm #658457
It’s not a joke, folks. It’s grammar.December 23, 2008 8:39 pm at 8:39 pm #658458
so squeak, is there any grammatically correct way to say unhealthy cake other than to use the long hand “cake which causes those who consume it to become unhealthy”?
can we dissect this any further? 🙂December 23, 2008 8:41 pm at 8:41 pm #658459
So far no healthy recicipies. Guess we gota just stick wit da good stuffDecember 23, 2008 8:42 pm at 8:42 pm #658460
Yes. The correct term would be “healthful” or “unhealthful”. I hate how that sounds but that does not prevent me from pointing out its correctness 😉December 23, 2008 8:43 pm at 8:43 pm #658461
lol charlie – THAT actually got a laugh! (first one for the day! thanks!)December 23, 2008 9:21 pm at 9:21 pm #658462
brooklyn, glad to hear that!December 24, 2008 4:25 am at 4:25 am #658463AshreinuParticipant
1) Try a site like epicurious.com or another cokking site. Search in the lite or healthy department.
2) Just google it and see what you come up with…
3) If you don’t want to go out and buy a cookbook at any bookstore, try taking one out of the Library.
4) There are lots of sites devoted to healthy eating, recipes, wieght loss, etc. it’s out there, have fun finding some good ideas!December 24, 2008 7:00 am at 7:00 am #658464
charlie brown, thanks 4 explainin!! didnt get at first but now that i did must say im actually laughin out loud … thanks!!!December 24, 2008 10:26 am at 10:26 am #658465
soon as I saw your post, I knew you were referring to the grammar. But my 8th grade teacher (I still remember!) said it is supposed to be “healthy for you”! I guess maybe she was wrong or I remember wrong. (Now, please don’t comment on my grammar usage. thanks!)
P.S. Did I put the e’s and i’s in the right places?December 24, 2008 2:44 pm at 2:44 pm #658466
Yes you did 🙂
You are well on your way to becoming “intelligent”!December 24, 2008 7:21 pm at 7:21 pm #658467
you;re welcome! Keep laughing. Its healthy, err healthful to do so. 🙂December 24, 2008 11:02 pm at 11:02 pm #658468
Kay, 2 make e/o clear i’m lookinf for a recipe that is either low fat or fat free but I NEED IT TO BE EASY! Please answer me quickly!!!!!!!
btw I tried looking in Kosher by design light but many ingredients are not typical ones, but thanks anyway so answer me fastDecember 25, 2008 1:14 am at 1:14 am #658469
1. Open a box of Dunkin Heinz cake mix.
2. Follow directions on box
3. To reduce fat by 50%, throw out half the cake.
Quick, easy AND low fat!December 25, 2008 1:32 am at 1:32 am #658470
but unhealthy. (or is it “unhealthful???”)December 25, 2008 2:30 am at 2:30 am #658471shindyMember
Squeak…good idea, but isn’t that baal tashchis? I do have a recipe for low fat muffins and when chanukah is over i will dig up the recipe in my recipe box and type it here.
In the meantime, you can use the Dunkin Heinz cake mix and substitute apple sauce for the oil, and it still tastes delicious.December 25, 2008 3:02 am at 3:02 am #658472
I think that ANY carrot cake is intrinsically healthful, as are banana cakes, zucchini cakes, cheesecakes, and chocolate cakes (chocolate comes from a vegetable, no?). That’s my story, and I am sticking to it…December 25, 2008 11:06 am at 11:06 am #658473
Thanks! Let me know when I reach that milestone!
About the cake, good idea! (I think yoyo wants a cake that you can eat !)
LOL-literally :-December 25, 2008 2:23 pm at 2:23 pm #658474
Hello oomis wow same line of thinking over here! anything that has something natural in it gota be healthy!December 25, 2008 2:36 pm at 2:36 pm #658475SJSinNYCMember
oomis, I see we hold by the same shitta!December 25, 2008 5:18 pm at 5:18 pm #658476lakewoodwifeParticipant
‘all recipes’ has some great recipes and many of them are low-fat. Also in many cake/ muffin recipes you can replace most or all of the fat (marg or oil) with applesauce, measure for measure, and the taste & texture will be great. I usually recommend replacing half of the fat first (if it calls for marg, you can replace the other half with oil). If that works (which it usually does) then I’ll try a total replacement.
I do have a great banana oatmeal muffin recipe that I got from ‘all recipes’, and made some changes, if you’re interested I’ll post it after Shabbos.December 25, 2008 6:22 pm at 6:22 pm #658477
“I usually recommend replacing half of the fat first (if it calls for marg, you can replace the other half with oil).”
Did you mean to replace half with apple sauce or you meant oil?
I heard of this concept before but i don’t get it, if it really works why would the recipe be oil? is there a difference in taste. Also should you put less sugar because the apple makes it sweeter, no?December 25, 2008 7:15 pm at 7:15 pm #658478
My SHadow and SSJinNYC, clearly we all have great taste!December 25, 2008 8:34 pm at 8:34 pm #658479
Definately!! And we clearly all needa go on a crash diet!December 25, 2008 11:00 pm at 11:00 pm #658480
well good luck on that but still help me please!!!!!!!!!!!!!! have rachmanus and open up you’re cookbooks to help all those who need to lose weight but seriously it can be done if a/o out theirt can find me a recipe!!!!!!!December 26, 2008 1:38 am at 1:38 am #658481lakewoodwifeParticipant
yoyo- go to allrecipes.com and check out their low fat recipes.
intel- I meant 1/2 with app sauce & 1/2 oil. I use unsweetened app sauce & have never found the recipes to be too sweet, but you can often cut down on the sugar without a prob anyway. Most people do not notice a difference in texture or taste, but there is definitely a slight diff, and I’m sure some people like it better with the fat.September 14, 2009 2:55 am at 2:55 am #658482
an really easy recipe:
one cake mix
a can of diet soda
mix together and bake regular and tada a perfectly dietic cake
but does anyone have any lowfat recipe that is tested, tried and true that has oatmeal in it and no wheat germ? thanks soooooooooooooo much
