Email your favorite "strictly protocol" VLCD recipes to us at support@hcgmiracle.com.

Note:  When using recipes from the VLCD Recipes page make sure that you use each protein, vegetable, or fruit ingredient as your protein, vegetable, or fruit for that meal.  If you are using only a small amount of a fruit or vegetable ingredient in a recipe, you may still be able to have an additional "side" of that fruit or vegetable with your meal.  For instance, Jai's Orange-Vinaigrette Dressing only uses 3-4 orange segments.  You may have the rest of that orange as your fruit for that meal.  You would not, however, want to have an apple or strawberries with that meal.

Cabbage
1/2 Cup homemade chicken stock (boil chicken slowly for about an hour)
Salt
Pepper
Garlic
Italian Herbs
Boil stock and place large strips of cabbage carefully in the pot and lower the heat to a simmer.  While the cabbage is softening, take 3.5 oz of chicken breast, left over cabbage and seasonings and pulse them in the processor until desired consistency.

Water
1 Tbsp tabasco course ground mustard
2 gloves of garlic minced
2 Tbsp organic chicken broth (read label!)
Pepper to taste
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
Place chicken in saute pan with 2 Tbsp  Braggs liquid aminos, black pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder. Cook chicken until done, adding water to deglaze pan and keep chicken moist.
While chicken is cooking take another large pan. ( I use a 8" pan with high sides so the cabbage leaves lay open and will not tear.) Add water and bring to a boil. Add cabbage leaves, one at a time, and cook until cabbage leaf is tender and plyable. (I also remove the hard veins of larger leafs). As they are done take out set to side.
Once the chicken is completely cooked remove chicken from the pan, cool, and cut up. Add the minced garlic, 1 Tbsp mustard, and 2 Tbsp broth to pan drippings. Bring to boil and cook your apples in this mixture. Once the apples start cooking down and are tender, return the chopped chicken to the apple mixture.   Take your large steamed cabbage leafs and, spooning in the mixture, roll into wraps.
Whaley says, this is satisfying, sweet and spicy, and very filling.
