High Fibre, Loads of Protein, and just the right amount of Carb to start the day!
Are you a fan of Prevention Magazine? You may have seen their list of 9 Blood Sugar-Lowering Foods from the book The Carb Sensitivity Program.
This salad dressing has almost all of them! - plus a few extra.
Enjoy a guilt free dressing that's GOOD for you too!
Customize the heat in this salad by adding more or less of the fresh red chili pepper!
Nice on it's own for lunch, or as a side at dinner pared with a lovely steak.
A low Carb meal that's perfect for Breakfast, Lunch OR Dinner
These protein-packed veggie burgers will be a hit at your next picnic.
Lovely as a side dish with grilled chicken, or on it's own for lunch.
Mix this up by adding your own combo of veg, fresh herbs, and dressing. The one used in this recipe is just 35 cal for 2 tbsp. so if yours differs you'll need to adjust the calories etc accordingly.
Only 34 calories per tbsp.... nice change from the normally high calorie Caesar Dressing... good as a brush on marinade for chicken too!
For those who are watching their cholesterol, this salad can be a nice accompaniment to a lovely quiche or a meal for 1 in itself. Letting it sit overnight intensifies the flavours!
If you don't have a Remark store near you, just replace the dressing with one of your favorites that has a similar nutritional value (2 tsp = 35 calories, 3 grm fat, 0 cholesterol) or make your own!
Make this high fibre, low sodium filling meal over the weekend to enjoy on those "meatless Mondays"!
This hot cereal is packed with good fats, complex carbs and protein to keep you going strong throughout your morning.
Makes 2 servings
A lovely spicy low fat soup to warm you up on cold days.
Make it a full meal with 1/2 of a whole wheat naan or by adding 1/2 cup of leftover cooked brown rice to your bowl.
Freeze individually for when you're in a hurry! Partner up with a glass of milk and a hard-boiled egg for a balanced and complete breakfast.
Low in FAT (just 1.2 grams)... high in PROTEIN (17 grams)... and only 242 calories - the perfect chili - even for my husband who doesn't realize that this version is meatless!
Nice for breakfast or dinner, pared with a salad
Full of Potassium, Fibre and Protein to stick with you through a long cold day.
High in Potassium, low in Sodium... goes great with a turkey sandwich for a quick dinner.
A spicy dinner treat on a cool night - high in sodium due to fish sauce, so if you are "sodium aware" like me, you will want to only make this occasionally and then limit the sauce you take.
Whenever I bake potatoes on the BBQ, I always make a few extra to use in this soup.
This garlic loaded soup takes away the need to add all the fat and calories that comes with the cheese and bacon that is normally in regular baked potato soup.
A perfect mid-morning snack to keep you going
A lovely hearty "heart friendly" soup to keep you going on those cold days. Goes great with 1/2 a large whole wheat pita (not in calculation)
A satisfying meal in a bowl - great for those chilly nights.
For those of us who struggle to meet our minimum Potassium requirements, this will help you along your way with 806 mg of Potassium!
Compliment with a lovely mixed green salad and voila!
A quick and easy breakfast that's big in flavor and potassium!
With just 3.2 grams of fat, this recipe is adapted from the Weight-Watcher 20 minute Recipe cookbook.
Perfect for Pork Tenderloin!
As tastie as Dumplings without all the fat and hard work!
High on Fibre and taste!
This filling is great in 1/2 a whole wheat pita.
Makes 4 servings
Something special for the occasional treat. Chinese at home!
A lighter version of your traditional favorite.
Goes great with a nice green salad and reduced fat salad dressing.
Low in fat but not flavour!
A nice kick of Vitamin A and Potassium!
We always have an abundance of lovely Roma Tomatoes in our garden every summer. This recipe was created out of necessity - tastes great, and packed with Potassium, Vit A and C!
To save time, use leftover grilled or poached salmon - This recipe has a nice kick of Potassium for those of us to struggle to reach our daily minimum.
A satisfying dinner salad sure to hit the spot. If you are concerned about sodium customize recipe by soaking your own chickpeas and/or by omitting the Feta Cheese.
Israeli Couscous is a larger form of the couscous you may be familiar with. I find it in our local "Bulk Barn". This is a lovely side dish in the summer. Feel free to add fresh parsley or mint instead of cilantro if you prefer. Delicious!
For those of us who love Chinese food - without the fat , lower in sodium than your restaurant favorite, and with a BIG kick of Vitamin C to boot!
TIP: freeze your Ginger Root - it makes it much easier to grate, and lasts for months!
My family loves the taste of sesame oil - and just a little goes a long way in this quick and easy salad.
Can be served as a side dish or as an appetizer. The Acorn squash makes pretty scalloped-edge slices, but you can use any other firm squash if you'd like.
These smell great grilling on the Q! Serve with fragrant Brown Basmati rice.
Tip: I freeze my ginger root - keeps forever and makes grating a snap!
Great at a BBQ with baked pita chips!
This crunch/creamy salad goes great when stuffed in a pita with Lamb burgers!
These Greek-style burgers served in whole wheat pitas make a great change from plain old hamburgers!
