This is a very simple recipe, which is also a great treat anytime! Whether you're on a sugar-restricted diet, or not, this is a lovely diversion. I hope you enjoy it. If you are watching your sugar, this will be allowable no more than twice per week. If you are watching your cholesterol, blueberries are known cholesterol blockers AND high in anti-oxidents [cancer cell-blockers]!
Perfect way to start the day. Cocoa powder is actually quite healthy, at least when the milk is left out of it. The almonds aren't just a beneficial alternative, it makes for a very tasty and distinct hot cocoa.
Low fat, high protein dessert i magically came up with after gym. Perfect post workout snack or for late at night when u don't want to be too naughty! :P
Note: to make lactose free, just replace Skim Milk with Soy Milk or Lactose Free milk.
I found this on a vegan website during Finals week (aah, chocolate!). If you can make a cup of hot chocolate from scratch, you have all the ingredients for this recipe--it doesn't require confectioner's sugar, butter, or solid chocolate. The original recipe called for cornstarch, but I used besan (gram flour/chickpea flour) instead. I also didn't have vanilla, so I stirred in a packet of non-dairy, flavoured creamer at the end. Yum!
A healthy and tasty cracker that keeps well for several days if they last that long. You can replace the ground seeds with another 1/2 cup of brown rice flour if you prefer. I grind seeds in a clean coffee grinder.
They weren't crispy with the coconut oil originally called for but they are very crispy made with olive oil.
This is very similar to the one I used to make as a vegetarian, but I had a small amount of meat to use up, so I tried this. Again it's also good as a burrito filling and topped with whatever you normally like on your chili. I use reduced fat cheddar cheese or maybe sour cream.
This is a recipe I made up one night with the ingredients I had on hand. It's very quick to make and it has a great deal of flavor from the "crispy" garlic. Try alternate/additional veggies -- mushrooms, red bell pepper, zucchini, spinach, artichokes, peapods, etc. Or substitute shrimp or scallops for the crab. Most dry or fresh pastas would work in this recipe.
This is an old recipe from Elswet's mother. We have no idea where it came from, but the family name was McQueen. ;) This is the diabetic version. The alternate ["normal"] ingredients are listed as comments.
I love crepes, and I got very tired of eggs for breakfast after going low-carb. These are best with savory ingredients (because of the buckwheat), but you could fill with berries and sugar-free whipped cream instead.
This is a recipe that I enjoy when I just want to make a treat for myself but don't want the high calories and fat or the leftovers. I think they are really good, but don't expect them to taste like regular full-fat brownies! I'm mainly posting to get the nutrition facts, but I hope some of you out there will enjoy them as much as I do!
