This dish was born from the deep draws of my fridge. I am usually meticulous with my meal planning as I hate to waste food and lately one trip a week is all I wan to do. I had a bunch of veggies left over and a package of frozen [...]
In the past I have planted so many zucchinis in my garden that I had a hard time keeping up with the yield and I don't want them to go to waste. A friend of mine suggested grate them all and freeze them in 1 cup portions. Brilliant, thanks Leanne! [...]
From week to week I plan our menus. I only have one big shop to do at the grocery store, I know exactly what I am going to make and I usually look at my garden and I know what fresh fruits and vegetable I have available. On this occasion [...]
I know we have already discussed this but my garden never ceases to amaze me. The fruits and vegetables that I am harvesting are beautiful, full of colour and absilutely massive. The zucchinis are the size of a small baseball bat so naturally stuffed zucchini are the fist thing that [...]
Salads don't always have to be complicated and when you are at a bit of a loss for something different to have for lunch raid your crisper and throw something together. You might find you love the new flavour combination. For this salad I did just that. A little this [...]
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 [...]
This spectacular summer salad is very high in protein and adds beautiful colour to your summer table. To julienne veggies I would suggest purchasing a julienne peeler. They usually come with 3 different blades and are a handy little gadget to have around the kitchen.
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.
My original intention when I set out to make this soup was to make a parsnip soup but for some reason I didn't pick any parsnips up on my last trip to the grocery store even though they were on my list and I could have sworn I actually picked [...]
These rice wraps make a nice light snack at 16.2g of net carbs. You can follow the recipe to the letter or be creative and add your own flare. I prefer to use black kale as I find it a little less bitter than regular green kale. Try pairing this [...]
These pancakes are a remake of simple banana pancakes. If you have ever had zucchini bread you will know that it has a similar flavour to that of banana bread. Although banana's are good for you they can be very high in sugar (16.6g) which makes a large banana very [...]
Adapted from: CHICKPEA QUINOA BURGERS by Esther's Executive Chef Deb Gleason I have been following Esther the Wonder Pig's FB for the last few months and recently they began Esther's Kitchen. It is full of fabulous recipes and kitchen hints and tricks. I tweeked this recipe a bit to bring [...]
This breakfast can be served as a tapas or as an entr
Recently I put a challenge on Facebook to send me recipes for a diabetic makeover. This recipe was already decent in moderation but I made some changes to make it more diabetic friendly. I substituted the all purpose flour (Carb: 47.7g, Fibre: 1.7g, Protein: 6.5g) for soy flour (Carb: 16g, [...]
This dish is perfect for those over sized zucchinis being harvested around Ontario right now. You can also omit the beef and add portabello and cheese for a vegitarian option. To keep it high protein pack in the cheese and you can even add an egg to hold it all [...]
Great high protein, high fibre appetizer. You can also use them as a side dish to a perfectly BBQ'd burger.
