We were invited to a friends house for dinner and to watch the Toronto Blue Jays team lose yet again. Boo Hoo. I had some time that afternoon so I whipped up a batch of these tasty little guys. These low carb (3g net) little bites are easy to make and [...]
Potato pancakes or Latkas are a favourtie in our house but as everyone knows potatoes are very high in carbs and calories. Swap out the high carb potatoes for low carb cauliflower and you have a great low carb dinner. Be sure when you are draining the cauliflower that you [...]
This dish is super healthy but doesn’t compromise on fabulous taste. With only 1.9g of net carbs it is super easy and suitable for both type 1 and type 2 diabetics and those following a Weight Watchers diet. As an added bonus, I guarantee your kids will like it too.
When I can find a meat substitute that doesn't necessarily include soy products I get very excited. Sure I eat Tempeh and Tofu from time to time but I was very excited to eat these meatless meatballs. They have a very similar look and texture to real meatballs. Fairly easy [...]
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 [...]
Compared to beef burgers, vegetarian bean burgers tend to be a bit mushy in the middle. This is primarily because a black bean patty is made up mostly of starch and proteins that have already been cooked once. They no longer cling together in the same way and don't really [...]
This soup is absolutely delicious. You can choose to puree only half if you prefer it chunkier or puree the entire contents for a creamier soup. Prepare all the ingredients the night before then throw it all in the crock pot before leaving for work. At 19.8g of net carbs [...]
This dish makes a nice little side dish to chicken wings. It is also a great appetizer for your next party. Your guests will gobble it up!
I made this super easy breakfast for my family on family day. Easy enough for the little ones to help with and economical. Its a great way to get your kids to eat some veggies.
I was looking for something a little different for lunch and remembered I had some beets. They fried up nicely and I put them in the high protein pita. The result was a yummy packed pita high in protein and fibre.
This super easy pita is a hit! Easy to send cold to school or a nice weekend warm lunch. Get the kids involved in making it too, it's that easy.
Bread is simply evil for diabetics but this Cauliflower "bread" is gluten-free, grain-free, low carb, low fat and only 2 Weight Watchers point per serving. For most diabetics or anyone wanting to loose weight bread is one of those food people find the most difficult to give up or cut [...]
Our family usually has this salad on a weekly basis. It is great with marinated fish and baked fries. I like to use the packaged Fresh Express Asian Kit as it has the Chinese Cabbage, carrots and celery in the mix. If you have time you can easily shred all [...]
This was a hail mary type recipe. Didn't know what I wanted and then voila I had an over stuffed low carb high protein pita. It is a great vegetarian dish that can be changed for all types of foodies. Add some bacon or shaved ham for you carnivors or [...]
I had this refreshing salad at work yesterday. It is zesty and a very versatile salad. Get creative with the grains, greens and beans you use.
An awesome take on tater tots. These little cauliflower nuggets are gluten free and low carb. Sure to be a hit for the kids as an after school treat, appetizer or quick dinner side. Source: http://www.forkandbeans.com
