Goat Cheese Frittata

I’m calling this “goat cheese frittata” because it contains goat cheese, but I might as well call it “everything frittata,” since it was born out of my need to use up stuff in my fridge before it goes bad. So I threw in there said goat cheese, spinach, scallions, and a few sun-dried tomatoes. Added seasonings and baked. The result is a delicious, pretty, very filling frittata that I love having for breakfast, for lunch or as a quick snack. Click for the recipe

Spaghetti Squash Bake

This very flavorful spaghetti squash bake provides all the yumminess, cheesiness and gooiness of pizza or pasta, with a much healthier base of spaghetti squash. It’s very nutritious and filling, so I make it for two and serve it as the entree, alongside some tossed salad or steamed veggies. Click for the recipe

Gluten Free Chocolate Cupcakes

These gluten free chocolate cupcakes have a tender, fluffy crumb. They are very good even without the frosting, but the frosting elevates them into perfection. And since they are made with low-carb, high-fiber coconut flour, they are not as calorie-dense as most cupcakes, and they are very filling. Click for the recipe

cabbage stir fry

This cabbage stir fry is incredible. Seriously. I know it’s just cabbage, but cabbage has a way of absorbing other flavors, and the sauce here is phenomenal. Just try it, OK? It doesn’t look like much, I know, but it’s one of my favorite vegetable dishes these days. Click for the recipe

Beef Stir Fry

A quick and easy asian-inspired stir-fry. Beef, onions, bell pepper and noodles are quickly cooked, then flavored with a simple spicy sauce. Sesame oil, scallions and sesame seeds finish the dish, rounding out the flavors and enhancing the presentation.

This is one of those recipes where zero-carb, zero-calorie, high-fiber shirataki noodles are not a compromise – they work really well in this recipe, both in terms of texture and in terms of flavor. Of course, if you prefer, you can use any other type of noodles, including angel hair pasta, keeping in mind that the nutrition profile will change. Click for the recipe

Gluten Free Chocolate Cake

This gluten free chocolate cake has a tender crumb and a deep chocolate flavor. It’s not just gluten free but also boasts a very clean ingredients list. One square contains 15% of your vitamin E and magnesium daily needs, and 36% of manganese. It’s hard to believe that almond butter, eggs and cocoa butter can turn into a cake when baked, but it’s true – and gluten free or not, it’s one the best chocolate cakes I’ve ever had.
