Meats should be broiled, grilled, poached or baked with NO additional OIL of FAT. One meal should be beef or veal, and the other meal should be a seafood or chicken choice.
Vegetables and fruits may be eaten raw or cooked in water, sautéed, baked, or grilled with NO additional fats or oils used in the preparation. DO not mix vegetables.

Here's a list of select recipes for HCG Diet Phase II. Feel free to share your own recipe here ;)

· 80g sliced onion rings
· 1 grissini
· 1 T skim milk (as allowed daily)
· 1/4 t cayenne pepper
· 1/4 t salt
· 1/4 t pepper

1. Preheat oven to 450.
2. In a small bowl, add milk, cayenne pepper, salt, pepper. Mix to make a batter.
3. Grind grissini in food processor until it is a powder. (I use my coffee grinder.)
4. Put grissini in a separate small bowl.
5. Place rings in batter bowl and toss to coat fully. (It's best to use your hands here to ensure you coat each ring.)
6. Let sit in batter 2-3 mins then toss again.
7. Dip each ring into the grissini powder by hand. I find it works best to do these one at a time, rolling the ring in the grissini coating instead of tossing or shaking it on.
8. Place on cookie sheet lined with non-stick aluminum foil.
9. Cook 6-7 mins. Then flip, cooking an additional 6-7 mins.
10. Serve immediately.

· 100g whitefish
· 2 T Bragg Liquid Aminos
· 1 T rice vinegar (be sure to read the ingredients so that it includes NO sugar)
· 2 cloves minced garlic
· 1 t ginger

1. Mix Bragg Liquid Aminos, rice vinegar, garlic, and ginger in a ziplock bag or dish with lid.
2. Place whitefish in marinade and coat.
3. Seal and refrigerate for 30 mins - 1 hr, turning once.
4. Discard marinade and pat fish slightly dry with a papertowel.
5. Grill 3-4 mins on the George Foreman until fish flakes. Or you can broil for 5-10 mins depending on thickness of fish.

TIP: I usually marinate the fish in a ziplock bag. That way I can simply flip the bag over in the refrigerator one or two times while marinating. When it's finished marinating, I simply cut off one corner of the bag and drain out the marinade and then it's much easier to pull the fish out & pat it slightly dry.

TIP: Use a glass baking dish to make these as they seem to want to stick less. Also, if you want to brown them more after cooking, you can broil them for 1-2 mins each side.

These also can be frozen in a freezer bag and then warmed up before serving. Makes a great quick meal! TOP with Marinara Sauce

TIP: Squeeze out any excess moisture from crab before adding seasonings and keeping some of the crab in bigger chunks while breaking it apart. Also, you can add some of the grissini powder to the crab mixture before forming patties as this helps it stick together if your crab is still very moist. Mix the patties and set them in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours or overnight as this helps the patties set.

· 100g whitefish
· 2 T Bragg Liquid Aminos
· 1 T rice vinegar (be sure to read the ingredients so that it includes NO sugar)
· 2 cloves minced garlic
· 1 t ginger

1. Mix Bragg Liquid Aminos, rice vinegar, garlic, and ginger in a ziplock bag or dish with lid.
2. Place whitefish in marinade and coat.
3. Seal and refrigerate for 30 mins - 1 hr, turning once.
4. Discard marinade and pat fish slightly dry with a papertowel.

TIP: I usually marinate the fish in a ziplock bag. That way I can simply flip the bag over in the refrigerator one or two times while marinating. When it's finished marinating, I simply cut off one corner of the bag and drain out the marinade and then it's much easier to pull the fish out & pat it slightly dry.

· 100g shrimp
· 200g cabbage
· 4 T homemade broth
· 1/2 t onion powder
· 1/2 t garlic powder (or use fresh minced, if available)
· 1 1/2 t Bragg Liquid Aminos
· black pepper (to taste)
· red pepper flakes (optional)

1. Preheat pan over MED-HI heat.
2. Finely shred cabbage in food processor.
3. Add cabbage, 2 T broth, and 1/2 t Bragg Liquid Aminos to pan.
4. Stir fry for 2-3 minutes just until slightly tender.
5. Remove cabbage and place on serving dish. Sprinkle with fresh black pepper.
6. Turn heat down to MED.
7. Add shrimp, 2 T broth, onion powder, garlic, and 1 t Bragg Liquid Aminos.
8. Stir fry shrimp until they curl up & turn pink.
9. Sprinkle with red pepper flakes. (optional)
10. Serve immediately over cabbage.

TIP: You can alter the amount of broth and Bragg Liquid Aminos to your personal taste. You can also use water instead of broth. It's used mainly to keep the food from completely sticking while stir-frying. You may find you can do without the water/broth totally.

Don't expect the cabbage to taste like rice. But it has a great crunch and tenderness all at the same time, and goes really great with the shrimp. Really filling and tasty. Enjoy!

Use the coffee left in the pot (you could always brew fresh coffee for this - just let it cool to room temperature) and poured it into small plastic containers (each holding about 8-12 oz worth). You could also just pour this into an ice cube tray.

Then set in freezer.

Wait a few hours until mostly frozen (works best if it's still sort of 'mushy') and put into blender. (Or, instead of waiting for coffee to freeze, you could simply add ice & room temperature coffee to blender & speed up this process.)

Add 4-8 drops of Vanilla Crème Liquid Stevia (to taste).

Blend until to your desired consistency & serve.

You can also skip the parts with aluminum foil and simply use a baking dish with a lid.

I was just curious. I see a lot of recipes that are using things that are not on the list from the book or web-site. I thought we are not allowed to have shrimp? Could someone help with this and what about the mixing of veggies...is it not mixing to use a tomato sauce with another veggie? Confused???

I had bad results when I followed some hcg recipes (not from this blog). I went back to the original dr Simeon plan and he said not to mix vegetables, so that's what I did and got better results. The main key is to have one meat/fish and one vegetable only for lunch and dinner, and don't repeat any of the foods on the same day.

HCG4Me, Looking at your salad dressing recipe, I am pretty sure (and someone correct me if I'm wrong) that the protocol specifically says not to eat raw garlic. It contains a lot of natural oil.

I have never heard anything about not using raw garlic and I used it daily when on P2. I don't recall seeing it stated anywhere in Dr. Simeons protocol that raw garlic is not allowed, is that where you read it at Juicy Babe?

I don't remember where I read it... But I remember reading it somewhere. I will look through my notes and get back to you. But if it's not in the protocol, it was probably a note or tip from someone who had previously done the diet. Carry on with the garlic, ladies!
