Simple Arugula Lunch Salad

Salads don't always have to be complicated and when you are at a bit of a loss for something different to have for lunch raid your crisper and throw something together. You might find you love the new flavour combination. For this salad I did just that. A little this [...]

Curried Veggie Noodle and Chickpea Salad

We had a Post Canada Day party on July 4th (yes, Happy 4th to our neighbours south of the border) this year as the weather was less than optimal on July 1 and we were also up north visiting my mom for her 70th birthday which was July 2 (Happy [...]

Ok, so we have already established that I love curry and I love soups. This soup is just another addition to my "MUST MAKE THIS AGAIN!" list. It is bursting at the seams with flavour and it makes enough that you are guaranteed to have lunch the next day. I [...]

A while ago we found a great line of bean pastas that are gluten-free, low carb, high protein and full of flavour. They have a nice selection of pasta types and bean varieties. The Adzuki Bean pasta is a lovely spaghetinni with only 11g net carbs, 20g protein and no [...]

Low Carb Cauliflower Cheddar Soup

It has been a rainy couple of days in our neck of the woods so I figured a thick creamy soup and a protein packed sanny on low carb bread was in order. Cauliflower is a humble little bumpy vegetable. Its creamy white flowrettes pack more of a nutritional punch [...]

Mango Chicken Salad

Mango, chicken and curry seem to be the ultimate pairing. I used the Alphonso Mango which is a seasonal fruit considered to be among the most superior varieties of the fruit in terms of sweetness, richness and flavour. Alphonso's voluptuous shape and sunshine-yellow skin reveals succulent saffron-coloured flesh that's smooth [...]

Low Carb Taco Salad

Low carb taco Tuesday. How you ask? Omit the taco shells place the middles in a bowl and you have a fantastic taco salad without all the carbs. I love chili seasoning and chili powder is actually a fairly healthy seasoning, with significant amounts of several beneficial nutrients such as [...]

Ham and Egg Spinach Salad

After work today I spent and hour and a half mowing our new sod for the first time. It was looking like a little bit of a jungle. Birds were getting lost in the luscious vegetation and our poor Boston Terrior Nico has to bound like Bambi to get from [...]

Pad Thai Salad

This spectacular summer salad is very high in protein and adds beautiful colour to your summer table. To julienne veggies I would suggest purchasing a julienne peeler. They usually come with 3 different blades and are a handy little gadget to have around the kitchen.
