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 [...]
This meal is so easy and so fast you wonder how it can satisfy your hungry crew. That is precisely the beauty of this dish. I used the kale from my kitchen garden and threw it in a little at a time so some bits were cooked but still a [...]
This scalloped potato recipe was an instant hit. I used Lancashire White Cheese instead of the cheeses listed and it was great. Use any cheese that strikes your fancy. A great opportunity to try something new. There are 19.6g net carbs, 6.1g protein and 9 Weight Watchers points per serving.
For many of our family meals I make slight substitutions as I don't eat meat but I do eat fish. This meal was a treat as it was one for all and a quick one for all at that. 30 minutes from start to finish and you can adjust the [...]
It was pancake Tuesday and I hadn't planned very well. The kids were ok with the higher carb everyday pancakes but there was no way we could do it unless we wanted a huge spike after eating. I knew I had some zucchini's in the fridge and some cheese and [...]
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 [...]
It was a lovely summer day today. Warm, humid and everything is bright green from the recent rain. A day that I prefer to spend outside than in the kitchen preparing a hot meal. I got home from work at a decent hour and off I went for a 5km [...]
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 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 [...]
This high protein, low carb dish gives an exotic twist on an other wise boring dish of fish and rice. It is not too spicy but you can make it hotter by adding a little cayenne. Fish is naturally high in protein and Omega 3. Try pairing this dish with [...]
A delightfully refreshing dessert perfect for a afternoon tea party or a zesty finish to a casual dinner with friends. You can't rush perfection and this dessert truly needs time to set. Once the filling has been mixed up and poured on the crust it will need the full time [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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.
When I was in high school my German language teacher had a moto, KISS-Keep it Simple Stupid. Now looking back I do have to wonder, was this her subtle way of telling us really what she thinks of us or was she actually trying to teach us a valuable life [...]
