I am almost as excited to share this recipe with you as I was to devour it. It was full of flavour and quite simple to make which for a week night is a win-win meal in my books. This dish is probably not what one would expect as it [...]
We love breakfast for dinner in our house and this one was an instant hit. It was different from the usual eggs and bacon and I paired it with rutabaga home fries. Rutabagas are lower in calories and carbs than potatoes and contain more calcium. These tostadas are wrapped up [...]
I love it when I make a meal and all I hear is "mmm, mmm, mmm, so good!" as everyone chews. This creamy dish did just that and it was extremely easy to make. Delicious and easy, can't get better than that. I have used low carb tortillas and they [...]
I love a medley of flavour and this salsa is a spectacular combination of heat from the hot green pappers from my kitchen garden, the sweetness of juicy ripe Mangoes and the crisp, very mild onion flavour of the shiny purple skin and red-tinged fleshed red onion. In our house [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
My kids gave me an excellent vegan cook book for Mother's Day and I have been looking forward to trying them out. It can be difficult to find low carb vegan or vegetarian foods as they are all high in carbs because most of the meat alternatives are beans and [...]
I chose to use the high protein pitas instead of traditional Tostadas as they are less than half the carbs, considering beans tend to be higher in carbs. Even though beans are higher in carbs than meat they are much lower in fat, zero cholesterol, high in fibre and rich [...]
I work for the local school board and am fortunate enough to enjoy an extra long Easter weekend with this Monday off. I spent the day going for a run with my hubby, enjoyed a delicious decaf Americano at our favourite coffee house then came home and spent a few [...]
Mexican food is delicious and high in protein but can also be very high in carbs. To lower the carbs in this recipe I used Pita Gourmets High Protein Pitas. They are lower than corn tortillas in calories and carbs and higher in fibre and protein. I also chose Tostitos [...]
There are so many variations of chili out there that you are bound to find something that suits all tastes and dietary needs. A bowl of this chili has only 22.7g net carbs and 8 Weight Watchers points per serving. My crock pot is one of my favourite appliances in [...]
This low carb high protein pasta is
This is an awesome dip for all occasions. It can be made vegetarian but simply omitting the sausage or adding avocado or portobello in its place.
This pie is awesome, very flavourful and satisfying! The key to keeping the carbs down in this recipe is using the Mission Carb Balance tortillas. If you choose to use traditional tortillas the carb count will go up an fibre and protein will go down. Although the carbs seem high, [...]
A beautiful and refreshing summer wrap. Low carb and low calories a true vegetarian delight. Try adding some low sodium soy sauce or hot sauce.
Start your Sunday with these yummy burritos. They can also be made the day before and kept in the fridge over night. For extra pizzazz, top with guacamole and sour cream. If you prefer vegetarian omit the sausage and add more veggies and tofu to keep the protein values up. [...]
