Low Carb

If you’re having trouble with your blood sugar (pre-diabetes, reactive hypoglycemia or diabetes), or if you need to lose weight but find that you’re unable to do it (or to maintain weight loss) on the standard low-fat, high-carb diet, I highly recommend that you talk to your doctor about switching to a low-carb, moderate protein, high-fat diet. The recipes featured here typically contain 10 grams of net carbs per serving or less, making them suitable even for very low-carb diets.

Leg of Lamb Recipe

In this easy leg of lamb recipe, I use a 4-pound, semi-boneless leg of lamb, imported from New Zealand, that I buy in my local supermarket. Lamb is by far my favorite meat, especially New Zealand or Australian lamb, which tends to be gamey and very flavorful. Click for the recipe

Oven Baked Ribs

Tender, succulent, delicious oven baked ribs. Sure you can enjoy ribs in the winter! No need to fire up the grill – these oven baked ribs are slowly baked in the oven until the meat is tender, juicy and falls off the bones. The rub is fabulous – the perfect sweet-savory combination, and truly, there’s no need for barbecue sauce – why would you mask the wonderful flavor of these ribs with sauce? Click for the recipe

Gluten Free Chocolate Muffins

These delicious gluten free chocolate muffins are made with coconut flour. They taste richly chocolaty and indulgent, but they are low in calories and in carbs and high in fiber. Two of these muffins for breakfast will fill you up for hours and should not cause the spike and dip in blood sugar that regular muffins cause. Click for the recipe

Ribeye Roast

Tender, succulent and very flavorful, ribeye is my favorite cut of beef. Ribeye roast is very easy to make – simply rub with seasonings, then roast in the oven until done.
