Like many vegetarians I have a bit of an issue with iron but eating leafy greens like spinach will definitely help along with the help of an iron suppliment. We all know that Popeye made himself super strong by eating spinach, but you may be surprised to learn that he [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
Three out of four people in the house love mushrooms so I make them frequently in different forms. This hearty veggie dish is very filling and even though there is no meat you will still need a sharp knife to get into it. The original recipe had Tempeh instead of [...]
We are at that time of year again when spring sports start up. My daughter plays for 3 (possibly 4 if she makes the Provincial team) Rugby teams, my son plays for the local soccer house league and I play for the city women's soccer league. To say the least [...]
I love tarts but the crusts are usually loaded with fat and carbs which isn't very waist line friendly. Sure there are fabulous crustless quiches and tarts out there but sometimes you just want a little flaky goodness. This crust is made of almond and coconut flour so it does [...]
Yes, real men do eat quiche and they actually enjoy it too! Quiche can be loaded with carbs and fat but with a few simple changes you can enjoy it low carb and virtually guilt free. Due to the fact that I am the resident herbivore I get very excited [...]
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 [...]
Every Tuesday night my daughter has Rugby practice which takes a lot out of her and she comes home famished. As she comes in the door all I hear is "I'm home, whats for dinner?". When I told her meatloaf I can tell you that excitement didn't ooze from her...until [...]
Pizza is such a yummy treat but it is full of carbs. This pizza is crustless so not only is it MUCH lower in carbs, it is also gluten free. It is perfect meal for those days when you know you don't have a lot of time in the evenings. [...]
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 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.
These are a nice alternative to beef or chicken burgers with less the cholesterol, super low carb and only 4 Weight Watchers points. Cook them in hot oil but keep an eye that you don't cook them too fast and burn them. Serve with quinoa and a green salad
This is such a versatile dish. Breakfast, lunch or dinner. I used almond milk as it has half the carbs of regular milk and the high protein feta replaces meat. If you are more of a carnivore and miss the meat try different fillings like bacon and onion or leek [...]
This yummy little number is like vegetarian lasagna stuffed neatly into a thick and juicy Portabello mushroom cap. The high protien filling-ricotta, spinach and Parmesan cheese-makes you forget about the meat all together. The recipe works best with very large portobello caps; if you can only find smaller ones, buy [...]
