10 Best HCG Diet Recipes
There are several great-tasting recipes you can cook up while on the low-calorie HCG diet. Here are 10 of the best.
1. Filet Mignon and Braised Cabbage
This recipe uses a sugar substitute to sweeten the cabbage and a dash or two of lemon pepper to add some zest. Use herbs on the filet mignon to season and grill until it is cooked to your liking. Remember not to add any additional oil. In total, this meal has about 250 calories, which is well within range for the 500-calorie phase of the HCG diet.
2. Lemon Pepper Fish
This is a classic recipe for baked fish. Create a marinade with lemon juice, minced garlic, salt, black pepper, a quarter-teaspoon of cumin and a dash or two of turmeric. Place the fish in the marinade overnight, and then bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes.
3. HCG Chili
Yes, you can have chili on the HCG diet! This is a great recipe. Use a lean meat of some kind (the recipe calls for ground steak, but venison or bison can be substituted) and your favorite chili seasonings (garlic, onion, cumin, etc.) Add more cayenne pepper, if necessary, to make a hotter chili.
4. Cream Of Chicken Soup
This is a basic soup that can stretch for days if large batches are cooked. Use a blender to mix the ingredients, heat and serve.
5. Spicy White Chili
This is a variation on the HCG chili recipe, only with chicken instead of red meat.
6. Boneless Hot Wings
Use boneless strips of chicken breast to make this variation of the classic boneless hot wing recipe.
7. Rosemary Garlic Steak
A well-seasoned piece of steak, with rosemary, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Marinate overnight and then fire up the indoor grill.
8. Mini Meatloaf
Use your maximum allowed amount of ground steak and make this HCG variation of a home-style meatloaf.
9. Apple Crisp
This scrumptious dessert uses a cinnamon-flavored crushed breadstick topping as a streusel of sorts.
10. Lemon Oregano Whitefish Packet with Asparagus
A baked piece of whitefish seasoned with lemon, oregano, and other herbs, sealed in an aluminum foil pouch with asparagus.
