We are definitely creatures of habit. Every morning my darling hubby makes me a delicious breakfast of Greek yogurt with fresh fruit, nuts and flax meal. It is filling and full of protein. Sundays however is my day to make breakfast and I figure if he goes to all the [...]
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 [...]
This dish is super easy to make but just a little time consuming due to cooking times but don't let that scare you away. It makes a beautiful Sunday evening meatless meal, especially in the fall when the squash are in season and at their best. I was able to [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
When I was in high school my German language teacher had a moto, KISS-Keep it Simple Stupid. Now looking back I do have to wonder, was this her subtle way of telling us really what she thinks of us or was she actually trying to teach us a valuable life [...]
I love to find tasty alternatives to a regular dish and this pizza was just that. It was full of flavour, protein and was done in a flash. It is a warm summery pizza and the red wine vinegar adds a little bit of sour to off set the rich [...]
In a world of instant cereals, boxed cereals, breakfast sandwiches and muffins it is hard to believe that there are actually low carb high protein breakfasts that don't involve innocuous mixture of flour, water and yeast. For someone eating low carb this mixture is anything but innocuous. The more baked [...]
I think spring might finally be here but my son is still in snowboarding mode. Yesterday afternoon was a balmy +5 but off to the local ski hill we went. The conditions were still good and the boys didn't have to dress up like an Eskimo. We were at the [...]
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 [...]
These little balls are a great addition to any salad. Fairly easy to make and only 5 ingredients. You can make them a head of time and put on a plate till serving. They are dairy free and make a nice substitution for cheese in a salad with a creamy [...]
This creamy dressing is low fat and low carb. It is big on taste and will go well with just about any salad. It also makes a yummy dip for veggies or pita crisps.
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.
