Recipes I've Shared:

Crème de Vert Soup

This is a comfort soup I make every fall at least once. I add anything green I have on hand so it's never the same. However, I decided to measure the ingredients this time so that I have some idea of it's nutritional value and goodness :)

Banana Fluff

This is not diet food, but at least you know if you want to indulge how good to be!

Chickpea Coconut Curry with Rice

1) If you don't have Garam Masala, see the tips section on how to make your own.
2) All curry is not equal, some is hot, medium and mild. I used a mild curry and found it was not enough flavour. I added more curry.

Approximately 1/2 cup rice and 1+ cup of curry topping per person.

Quinoa Pancakes

Makes about 12 pancakes, 1 serving = 3 pancakes

Smoked Salmon Mini Pita Appetizers

These are amazing and so easy to make! Low cal but very rich and decadent.

* Note: Because I take off 1/4 of the pita top and discard it, I adjusted the number of mini-pitas so that the calorie info would be accurate, but you really do use 18 mini-pitas for this recipe.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Brownies

These are very rich, so you only need a small piece to satisfy that sweet craving.

South American Slow Cooker Pot Roast

This recipe came from Robyn's Home Remedies facebook page :)

Zucchini Pizza Casserole

I modified the original recipe to my taste. For instance, I swapped out Mozzarella for old cheddar cheese. I also prefer ground turkey to ground beef, and sausage to pepperoni. You can play with this and make it your own.

Bavarian Apple Torte

This is not diet food, but something I enjoy a bit of every now and then. I input it so that my calories would be accurate the odd time I do have it, and to know how big of a slice I can have and still be on track! Enjoy, this is a family favourite :)

Hummus (1 serving = 4 Tbsp)

This is a hit with everyone! Pair it up with celery and you have a healthy and low-cal snack. Enjoy!

Estimate: makes 2 cups .... change when I know actual amount

Spinach Kale Pear Banana Smoothie

Because I use Vanilla flavoured Almond milk, I don't add honey. If using unsweetened Almond milk, add up to 1 tablespoon of honey. It is healthy, but does not taste as healthy as it really is!


Incredible! (1 rating)
Spanakopita (spinach triangles)

1 serving = 2 spanakopita

Harvest Vegetable Soup

You can substitute the squash with pumpkin and it's just as tasty! A lovely, fall and winter comfort food.

Iris' Pumpkin Cheesecake

1 serving = 1/16 of the cheesecake

Easy Cheesie Veggie Omelet with Zing!

I don't like my eggs overcooked, and I always end up having trouble folding the egg over ... so I just cut the egg in half and sandwich the cheese in between!

Seedless, Smooth Cranberry Sauce

Best ever cranberry sauce. I don't like the seeds or chunks in regular homemade cranberrie sauce, so I puree it and strain it, mmmm good!


Incredible! (1 rating)
Diabetic Chocolate Cake

I swapped out the white sugar for SPLENDA to make it more diabetic-friendly.


Very Good (3 ratings)
Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts (per 2 pieces)

This recipe is always a hit, and very easy to make.

Christmas Punch

I make this punch for all gatherings, it is loved by kids and adults equally. It's very thirst quenching.
