Day 3 of Induction

Lindsey Pennington - Wednesday, October 21, 2009

It's DAY 3 on Induction. For lunch I had a Greek Salad topped with chicken, feta cheese, tomatoes, and onions with oil/vinegar dressing.  For dinner made a recipe called Taco Bake that Marianne posted on facebook.  I will post it below and under the recipe section under the Forums.  It was so good, it's definitely my favorite Low Carb meal right now.  My husband loved it too!  After work, I went to my favorite workout ZUMBA!  It was a great day!

Here is the Taco Bake Recipe:

TACO BAKE
Crust:
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
3 eggs
1/3 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon Seasoning for Tacos
8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded, 2 cups

Beat the cream cheese and eggs until smooth. Add the cream and seasoning. Grease a 9 x 13" baking dish; spread the cheese over the bottom. Pour in the egg mixture as evenly as possible. Bake at 375º, 25-30 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before adding the topping.

Topping:
1 pound ground beef
3 teaspoons Seasoning for Tacos
1/4 cup tomato sauce
4 ounce can chopped green chiles
8 ounces cheddar cheese, shredded, 2 cups

Brown the hamburger; drain the fat. Stir in the seasoning, tomato sauce and chiles. Spread over the crust. Top with the cheese. Reduce the oven to 350º and bake another 20 minutes or so until hot and bubbly. Serve with the toppings of your choice (add additional carbs).
