RED LENTIL PASTA WITH SAUSAGE

RED LENTIL PASTA WITH SAUSAGE

I’ve never been a fan of pasta alternatives, but now that there is more of a demand for them, I have found that there are some really good ones on the market. When it comes to red lentils, I only eat them in a soup […]

CHIA LEMONADE

CHIA LEMONADE

Chia lemonade, also known as chia fresca, is lemonade with chia seeds for added benefits. Refreshing, full of fiber and perfect for hot summer days. So how is mine different from your average lemonade? I use stevia for sweetness which makes this sugar-free. Most lemonades […]

JALAPENO CHEDDAR BISCUITS

JALAPENO CHEDDAR BISCUITS

I’ve made many variations of this biscuit. This jalapeno cheddar is my newest one. It tasted like cornbread. The almond flour gives it the cornbread texture. It’s also keto friendly.

TAHINI FLAX HEARTS

TAHINI FLAX HEARTS

These are the perfect snack to pop in your mouth. Even though they are small, they are quite filling.

MEATLOAF STUFFED PORTOBELLOS

MEATLOAF STUFFED PORTOBELLOS

This recipe can also just be a meatloaf. That’s originally what it was. I made meatloaf for my cousin and put the slices of pancetta all over the top. The result was a moist flavorful meatloaf. We each had a thick slice with veggies on […]

SESAME SUGAR SNAP PEAS

SESAME SUGAR SNAP PEAS

Lately, I have been trying to get more veggies into my diet without eating salads all day. These sugar snap peas did it for me. They are raw, crunchy, sweet, and salty. The sesame oil gives them a wonderful nutty flavour. They are so quick […]

LEMON SODA

LEMON SODA

I was a big soda drinker a few years back. I sadly admit I was drinking at least one diet soda a day. Back then, I thought if it were calorie-free or sugar-free then it was fine. I now know better and if I’m going […]

SUGAR-FREE STRAWBERRY JAM

SUGAR-FREE STRAWBERRY JAM

I love jams with berries. Whenever I’m in the grocery store I see all these wonderful jams made with fresh berries. Then I turn the jar over and see how much sugar is in it and put it back. One of my favourite snacks is […]

ORANGE ALMOND CAKE

ORANGE ALMOND CAKE

I’m always looking for low-carb snacks and this cake it great for that mid afternoon treat or tea time. Since there is no flour in this, the key to getting it to rise are the egg whites. I use apple cider vinegar to stabilise them […]
