This salad makes a nice light meal for lunch or dinner and the addition of the tofu ups the protein count. You may choose to not blanch the red cabbage but I like the way the purple pops after blanching and the flavour seems to be more intense. The best [...]
I love green beans! They are wonderful raw as a snack, steamed or fancied up like this peanut buttery dish. Green beans are a bit of a little power house as far as stringy little green veggies are concerned. They are low in fat, high in potassium, low net carbs [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]

I love the versatility of a great salad especially when there a re a few different dietary needs under one roof. You can add and subtract ingredients at will and the salad still tastes awesome. The one thing I really loved about this dish was the dressing. It was slightly [...]
Vietnamese food is so fresh and full of a huge combination of flavours and textures. Unfortunately it can also be loaded with carbs due to the use of rice and rice noodles so I substituted the rice vermicelli noodles for high protein, high fibre Adzuki Bean spaghetti. It is thin [...]
This chicken salad is extreamly high in protein low in carbs and only 4 Weight Watchers points. Stuff into a high protein pita or wrap in a fresh leaf of lettuce or kale. It also makes a great cold dip for nachos or whole grain crackers. If you prefer a [...]
Delicious salmon cakes made with cauliflower and the added color of red bell pepper and green onion. They are low carb
These little chicken kabobs are a perfect appetizer. They're quick and easy to prepare. They are high in protein and only 1 Weight Watchers point per serving.
A wonderful combination of both vegetable and starch. Great high protein side for fish or chicken or keep it light with chopped tomatoes, cucumber and red onion salad.
