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 [...]
It has been very hot here in Southern Ontario over the last week or so and I have to say this is one of the driest springs I can remember. Normally I would be doing a happy dance but this is the year we laid sod and re-seeded at least [...]

I love to cook in my Tagine that was given to me by a good friend a while back. This hearty meat dish will fill your home with a tantalizing smell. A perfect dish for a cool Sunday evening dinner with family.
This Malaysian egg curry is my obsession right now and it requires only steamed (basmati) rice to serve. Traditionally, the eggs would be hard boiled, but this dish is far more delicious when they are a little soft inside. To soft boil the eggs, cover them with cold water in [...]
I love refreshing desserts and this is definitely that. The combination of sugarless Jello and whipped cream blend makes for a sophisticated dessert. It reminds me a bit of trifle minus the high carb jelly roll and high fat custard cream. Don't get me wrong trifle is delicious but its [...]

These rice wraps make a nice light snack at 16.2g of net carbs. You can follow the recipe to the letter or be creative and add your own flare. I prefer to use black kale as I find it a little less bitter than regular green kale. Try pairing this [...]
This traditional recipe is low carb if you substitute regular spaghetti for Mung Bean Pasta. If you have a hard time finding the pasta use farro pasta instead of regular white pasta. This will still increase the carb count so read your lables. Although it also seems high in calories [...]
This Creole classic is a heart warming dish sure to keep you warm and fill your belly on a cool fall evening. Try adding some seafood like shrimp or mussels. This dish freezes well so make a double batch for another quick meal. At 15g of protein and only 4 [...]
There is a huge misconception out their that nuts make you gain weight. It is just that, a misconception. Nuts are full of healthy fats, which have been proven to help you feel full, and that’s one major thing that helps with losing weight. The more satisfied you are, the [...]
This coconut shrimp can be used as an appetizer, party food, or main course. There is a little sweetener in the coating, but this is optional. Pair them with seafood dipping sauce or check out our garlicky aioli sauce.
This dish is such a lovely light and refreshing dessert. You can substitute the coconut milk for heavy cream if you prefer dairy (more carbs though) or almond milk if you are dairy free but want less calories and fat. If using the almond milk you will need to make [...]
