About kimmy

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.

Mary’s Organic Crackers

I am always in search for some new snacks. Something that is interesting and different from the ho hum of carrot and celery sticks. Crackers can be higher in carbs so you really need to do your homework and check the nutritional facts. These cheeky little crackers are so crunchy [...]
