Recipes I've Shared:

Chana Masala

Fast, cheap, healthy Indian dish.


My recipe. Make a ton when basil is in season and freeze it in ice-cube trays, Then seal cubes in air tight containers.

White sauce for fish tacos

It's really good, and guilt free.

Beach's White Bean Chili

Quick, easy, satisfying.

Cilantro Sauce

Great as a salad dressing or condiment on anything Mexican, Thai, Vietnamese, Indian... Anywhere you might use cilantro. Also pretty fabulous on a sandwich or fish taco

Arroz Con Pollo

I use my rice cooker to do this. It takes awhile because of the whole grain rice, so be prepared for the fact that it will bubble for about 1-2 hours.

Balsamic Parmesan Dressing

From 1001 low-carb recipes.

Japanese Breakfast Soup

This is a nice high protein, low carb breakfast for a snowy morning.

Southeast Asian Turkey Burger

You could make this into patties, but I usually make it like taco meat. Then I use it to stuff fresh spring rolls, or top a salad with it. In spring rolls, use leaf lettuce, chopped fresh basil, mint, and cilantro, and maybe some bean thread noodles. Wrap with the kind of wrappers that you just soak in water for a few seconds to soften. I have a dipping sauce that goes with this in with my other recipes.

Thai/Vietnamese dressing/ dipping sauce

Tangy, spicy, good on fresh spring rolls, great on a low carb salad with Asian spiced turkey burger and a generous helping of the Holy Trinity of Southeast Asia cooking; chopped basil, cilantro, and mint.

Low Carb Asian Chicken Salad

Adapted from a recipe

Frittata, red pepper and mushroom, spinach

This makes a filling, healthy low-carb breakfast and it is very versatile. Any combination of veggies, cheeses and spices can be used. Can also be made in individual cups and baked if you want. If you do, be aware that this expands as it cooks and you probably don't want to exceed 2/3 of the depth of your cup or it will overflow. Adjust cooking time accordingly.
This can be made ahead and stored in the fridge so that you have a fast and portable breakfast for the work-week.

Brazilian Shrimp Stew

It's probably not diet food, but I needed to know how many calories are in it because I make it for company sometimes. It's worth saving up some calories for, it's really good.

Cream of Tomato Soup

Well, nothing beats this on a rainy fall day. Chases an afternoon spent on the ice-rink well...

Flourless Chocolate Cake

Easy to make, and obscenely delicious. I bake it in mini-souffle cups ( the paper ones, like your butter comes in at a pancake restaurant ) for portion control. Good warm or chilled the next day.

Curried Quinoa Salad with Mango

This is good. Adapted from a recipe found on

Energy Bars

Good snack for kids, portable, not too messy, and you know exactly what's in them, unlike store bought granola bars. This is really easy to adapt by changing the nuts and fruits and spices you add. Could also use other extracts besides vanilla.

Banana Cake

Great cake for kids B-Day

Tzatziki Sauce

The yogurt sauce that goes on gyros. Great as a dressing on a Greek salad, and fat free! Who knew?

Squash Soup

Good on a rainy fall day. Hearty, warming, and cheerful. Makes approximately 15 one cup servings.

Feisty Caesar Dressing

This is a good zippy homemade version. Lots of flavor. Makes about 18 oz. so this is calculated with a 1 0z. serving size.
