Creamy Spinach Enchiladas

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 [...]

Low Carb Vegan Tacos with Leek and Avocado

Our family LOVES tacos but the tortilla wraps are very high in carbs and fat. To avoid a family mutiny I served regular tacos and cheese to the family but made myself these lovely fresh and low carb tacos. They took no extra time to prepare but I did have [...]

Mexican White Fish

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 Salad

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 [...]

Crispy Fish Tacos

A few summers ago we took the family to New York City. It is such a vibrant and exciting city and I highly recommend that if you have the chance you need to go. We ended up staying in a great little studio apartment in the centre of Brooklyn which [...]

Oven-Fried Drums

I adapted this saucy little recipe from Canadian House and Home January edition. The original recipe was higher in sugar and fat. I made a few revisions to lower the carbs and after making the dish for the first time decided to replaced the wings for more meaty skinless drumsticks. [...]

7 Layered High Protein Tortilla Pie

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, [...]

Turkey Chili

Chili is a perfect meal for families on the go. Turkey is low fat and high protein and the salsa adds a little extra flair. Top with low-fat shredded cheese and for a little kick add some jalape

Low Carb, High Protein Shepherds Pie

This is one of our family favourites but as we all know the key to a happy family is compromise. So to please all I usually make 1/2 traditional potato and the other half low carb mashed cauliflower for the carb conscience. You could also try mixed veggies or chopped [...]
