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 [...]

Easy Oven Meatballs

These little meatballs are virtually carb free but full of flavour. Experiment with different flavours by adding a combination of different herbs and spices or even cheese. I found these meatballs cooked better after being chilled for half an hour in the fridge. You can still bake them straight away [...]

Kale and Apple Smoothie

This has been a week of kale for our family. Kale in salads, kale in soups, and kale in this smoothie. The reason for this is the kale growing in my garden is massive. Little shop of horrors if you will. No to mention the kale is in fierce competition [...]

Fast Fry Beef and Kale

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 [...]

Scalloped Sweet Potatoes and Thyme

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.

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 [...]

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 [...]
