Recipes I've Shared:

Butternut Squash Soup - Vegan, Low FODMaP

On a Low FODMaP diet, soups are hard... Most broths and soups have onion and/or garlic. I tweaked this recipe so it still feels hearty and sweet without using pre-made vegetable broth.

Banana Bread - Gluten Free, Vegan, Low FODMaP

This is a wonderful hearty banana bread! Whole family loves it!

Sweet & Sour Meatballs - Low FODMaP

After experimenting with may different recipes, my family finally agreed that this one works! Even without the onion and garlic these meatballs are a big hit!

Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Low FODMaP Pancakes

I adapted these from a recipe I found online. They are fluffy and delicious! Really satisfied my craving for pancakes and sweet enough to need no topping!

"Fried" Rice - Low FODMaPs

This is a huge hit that the entire family enjoys. It satisfies gluten-free & low FODMaPs diets and is really an easy dinner or side dish!

Quinoa with Butternut Squash & Onion

Yummy high protein snack! Or use as side dish with chicken or fish.

Slow Cooker Black Bean Soup

This is a wonderful soup for those cold Winter Days.

Sweet and Savory Meatballs

Easy and delicious! My kids love these meatballs either plain or over pasta.

Apple walnut cake with cinnamon glaze

Delicious and moist cake with lots of heart healthy ingredients.

Mini Apple Crisps in Ramekins

I combined my Grandmother's apple pie recipe with an apple crumble recipe I use to create this yummy single serve dessert!

Banana Chocolate chip Breakfast Muffins

These muffins are a great snack or breakfast treat. Sweetened with ONLY over-ripe bananas, they are absolutely delicious. The calories are calculated with the chocolate chips but they are optional... or you can do chopped walnuts for an even healthier recipe that is completely sugar free!!!

Dairy Free - Deep Dish Chocolate Chip Cookie Ramekins

These are NOT low calorie... But they are delicious. I always make a few in mini-cupcake cups so I can have a bite-size taste while company is given a full ramekin.

Balsamic Dressing

I do not use sugar substitutes, but the agave nectar lowers the glycemic index and calorie count. I serve this over baby greens with red onion, strawberries, mango, and slivered almonds for a great salad.

Individual Strawberry Shortcakes - non-Dairy!!

I serve these with whipped cream and strawberries for a wonderful individual portion of strawberry shortcake! I use non-dairy ingredients but you can use unsalted butter and regular whipped cream instead of the substitutes.

Sponge Cake in Ramekins

I serve these with whipped cream and strawberries for a wonderful individual portion of strawberry shortcake! I use non-dairy ingredients but you can use unsalted butter and regular whipped cream instead of the substitutes.

chocolate chip meringues

These sit overnight in the oven. They come out beautifully crispy and melt in your mouth, but the center is wonderfully chewy - almost like nougat!

Incredible! (1 rating)
LOW Calorie Vegetarian Lasagna

This has all the flavor of a great cheese lasagna with a MINIMUM of calories. You can certainly add some shredded mozzarella or other ingredients if you'd like that flavor, but not for 256 calories a serving! In my book this is a winner!

Incredible! (1 rating)
Cocoa Cinnamon Oatmeal

This is my go-to breakfast. I and my DH eat this every morning. It has a whopping 14 grams of protein (the egg whites add that kick!) per serving plus good whole grains - 6.4 grams of fiber, and the great health benefits of cocoa, cinnamon, and raw honey... all for about 290 calories of filling yummy goodness!!!!!

Sweet Potato Chili Fries

These are a family favorite... So healthy!

Derby Pie - Nut Free

This is by no means a low calorie dessert... but it's my DH's favorite so I make it on his birthday... I'll have a sliver.

Quinoa edamame salad

The best quinoa salad I have EVER made!!!! So easy!

Spinach salad with hearts of palm, tomatoes, and avocado

This salad is a fan favorite and always goes when I have company! FYI - The calorie content per serving is higher than in reality because I can usually stretch the dressing to use for 2 salads... It is too much for one salad but I always make more because I make this salad often.

Beef and Bean Chili - from Chef Jeff Nathan

There is nothing low cal about this recipe... I just entered it in to see how many calories it was. BUT - It's great chili and every once in a while, why not?

Sun Dried Tomato Spread

Great with Pasta, in wraps, as a condiment with protein dishes....

Passover Matzoh Brie (sweet)

This is a Passover favorite in our house!

Fresh Pesto

When the basil I grow in my hydroponic herb garden overflows, this is a great way to use it up!!! Great on fish, pasta, potatoes, or as a spread on toast or crackers!

Sushi salad

This is a side dish that is an interpretation of a california roll in salad form. YUM!!!

Chicken Soup

The longer you let this cook the better it will be... I let mine cook on a very low flame overnight.

Cholent in Crock Pot

I do not use potatoes in my cholent - the classic recipe omits the carrots & uses potatoes instead. I prefer it this way AND it is much healthier!

Savory Butternut Squash with Leeks & Onions

This is a very low calorie dish that is wonderful comfort food in the winter. I buy the pre-cut squash which cuts the prep time tremendously!

Baked Sweet Potato Chili Fries

LOVE these!! Make them all the time & the kids love them too. Just the right amount of sweet, salty, & spicy.

Pumpkin Crumb Pie - Reduced Calorie!

This is a delicious crustless Pumpkin Pie recipe I created by replacing the crust with the crumb topping from my favorite cobbler recipe... YUM!!!

Best Challah Recipe EVER!!!!!

I use a heavy duty mixer to do the kneading (has a 7 pound flour capacity.) If you don't have one of these the dough will be very difficult to work with unless you add more flour (which will change the texture of the finished product a bit.)

Butternut squash & sweet potatoes

Yummy comfort food in the cold winter months. Serve plain over rice or as a side dish. Makes a really large serving!!! If you eat it as a side dish - halve the serving & nutritional info!!!

Asian Inspired Barbecued Salmon Salad

So easy to prepare. Healthy & delicious!!

Root Vegetable Soup

Delicious on a cold winter day. Makes a ton & it freezes well in freezer bags! I cheat & buy the pre-peeled yams & squash so there is virtually NO prep time!
