My DH has diverticulitis and that means high fiber, low fat, large seeds and corn in moderation, and easy on beef! Imagine a man without a steak YIKES! These are the recipes that have kept his tastebuds dancing long enough to hold him over until he gets to have his once-a-month steak! For the fiber part check out my breads cookbook! Also check out "On the Grill" and "I Feel Like Chicken Tonite" cookbooks for lighter choices.
Cooking in a tightly sealed foil packet keeps all the flavor and moisture trapped inside, allowing one VERY lucky person to enjoy a terrific, flavorful, and healthy dinner. Diabetic Exchange, if made with Diet Mountain Dew: 4 very lean meat, 1 and 1/2 vegetable.
This is an amazingly refreshing smoothie made of starawberries, blueberry yogurt, blueberries, orange juice and ice. My newest creation to cure my early pregnancy cravings. You could do anything to this recipe, try different yogurts, and flavored orange juice.
I started throwing things in my new kitchen toy (Magic Bullet) and out came the best omelette I've ever made! All ingredients (except the eggs, milk, and spices) are optional, use whatever veggies and meat combinations you like. P.S. Don't be put off by the blending of your veggies, I always made mine with chunky veggies in the eggs (or into the center after cooking with the cheese) but I was in a hurry and these are really good! You can taste the flavors of all the ingredients throughout your omelette. A real tastebud sensation!
My friend Judy Montagu has a bi-weekly food column in the Jerusalem Post (weekend edition). She's always coming up with interesting recipes from all over the place (including Zaar). This recipe was featured in this week's column, and I know of at least 4 people who were so intrigued (myself included) that we had to try it out. It's really good. You wouldn't think it would be, but it is.
