TO ROAST OR NOT TO ROAST…

I LOVE VEGETABLES!  People ask me a couple of questions all the time…1. How can you eat so many vegetables all day…even for breakfast? and 2. What’s you’re favorite way to prepare and eat them?

Well as you can see from the pictures above I oven roast them ALL THE TIME…and they are SO delicious!  You see, all vegetables contain some quantity […]

TOMATO LENTIL SOUP

Well winter has finally arrived in these parts!  Something we of course expect but when you’re wearing a sweater one day and a parka the next…well let’s just say it makes one contemplate hibernation.  It was a “balmy” -15c. today and when one factors in the “wind chill” it “felt” like -27c.  Now, normally I wouldn’t […]

GLUTEN FREE PANCAKES

I’m always looking for ways to make good old comfort food in a healthier way.  I was really in the mood for pancakes, I’ve made Quinoa, Pumpkin and Coconut pancakes and they’ve all been quite yummy without causing me stomach upset – from the wheat & gluten.  Figured I’d make one of these choices.

When I started to […]

OKRA FRITTERS

Okra is one of those under-estimated vegetables.  People often walk by then in the produce section of the grocery store, mainly because they don’t know what to do with them!

Often used in North East African and East Indian cooking.  I could put Okra into just about anything!  I figured if I could make corn fritters, […]

RICED CAULIFLOWER

I live a pretty “low-carb” lifestyle.  I’ve recently added back good high fiber carbs in the form of certain fruits & vegetables.  I do love to make food that has a lot of flavor, sometimes with exotic sauces as in Asian or Indian cooking, when I do I really miss the rice.  That’s when I decided […]

Red Thai Chicken & Vegetable Curry

I started my journey of health & wellness on October 1, 2014.  Believe me when I tell you…if you stay on a very limited diet long enough, boredom can set in pretty quickly.  LOTS of flavor is the key to staving off the boredom and staying on course.

I absolutely LOVE curry of any kind, and […]

LOBSTER GUACAMOLE

One of my all time favorite foods is the avocado.  For the longest time avocadoes received a bad wrap because of the fat content, until scientists proved that the fats in the sublime creamy avocado are really good for us!

The Avocado comes from the same family as cinnamon and camphor.  They are high in Dietary […]

IT’S ALL IN THE DRESSING

Salad Dressing is one of those wonderful caloric conundrums that can pack a flavorful punch to often bland vegetables, the conundrum comes when commercial dressings add high empty calories.

In my opinion the best value for your caloric buck is a nice simple vinaigrette dressing, it also happens to be my favorite!

A true vinaigrette consists of 1 […]
