Intensely flavorful, filling, and satisfying combinations of vegetables, eggs, dairy and whole grains.

Low carb Mac and Cheese

Delicious, cheesy and buttery, in this low-carb mac and cheese, the elbow macaroni is replaced by shirataki rice. Shirataki rice is not just zero-carb and very filling, it is also highly beneficial to gut health. Click for the recipe

cauliflower gratin

Of all the many ways to prepare cauliflower, this creamy cauliflower gratin is one of my favorites. Granted, adding sour cream and gruyere to almost anything would make it taste good, but this is especially true for cauliflower. As versatile as potatoes, but healthier, it readily absorbs the richness of cream and cheese and is then elevated from a tasty veggie into a delicacy. Click for the recipe

Mini Spinach Quiches

Tasty little spinach quiches, crustless and grain-free. Great as an appetizer, as a side dish, or even as a quick snack – I simply grab one and eat cold, or briefly heat in the microwave.

These mini quiches are best baked in 3-ounce ceramic ramekins or in well-greased silicone muffin cups – they tend to stick to regular muffin tins, even when lined with paper liners. Click for the recipe

Eggplant Bake

In this eggplant bake recipe, a well-seasoned mixture of eggplants and onions is baked until everything is browned, roasted and very flavorful. I’m sure tomatoes would be a welcome addition here, by the way – I just didn’t have any on hand tonight! Click for the recipe

Goat Cheese Omelet

Tangy goat cheese, savory sun-dried tomatoes and oregano add lots of flavor to this tasty goat cheese omelet. Click for the recipe

sesame noodles

I already told you that I love shirataki noodles and feel that when prepared correctly, they provide a wonderful, low-carb, gluten-free alternative to noodles and pasta. I normally prepare them by boiling and dry-roasting and then simply toss with butter, garlic and Parmesan. But today I decided to try using them in a sesame noodles recipe.

Success! These sesame noodles are delicious, flavorful, super-filling, and healthy! No carb overload, and some great fiber for your good tummy bugs to work with. Click for the recipe

Fried Cauliflower Rice

This fried cauliflower rice is amazing! Try serving it to unsuspecting guests and they’ll never guess it’s made of cauliflower. Really, really good. And while we now know that rice that has been cooked, cooled and then fried contains beneficial resistant starch, for some of us, the carb load from a plate of fried rice is still too much, and this fried cauliflower rice is a great, tasty alternative.
