Sweet Potato Lasagna in Slow Cooker

Sweet Potato Lasagna in Slow Cooker

| January 15, 2015 | 2 Comments

A different spin on the classic lasagna is to cook it in your crock pot. The basic premise is the same. You layer the ingredients and then you bake. This time, however, instead of using pasta I chose to use sweet potatoes. Why use sweet potatoes? Simple, they’re nutrient rich and tasty. When I cook […]

3 and 1/2 Months of Low Carb Eating

3 and 1/2 Months of Low Carb Eating

| December 12, 2012 | 0 Comments

One thing I learned about the low-carb journey is that it’s a journey of constant tweaks. In my first month the low-carb I went hog-wild eating fats. I totally changed my eating habits to something that was foreign to my body. The immediate influx of large amount of fats took some getting used to. I […]

The other day my brother asked what was the one thing I miss since embracing the low carb way of eating. I had to think for a minute because my transition wasn’t a difficult one. After a moment of thought I had to say I missed the occasional slice of bread and butter. Having said […]

I Love Jicama

I Love Jicama

Jicama (pronounced Hik-A-Ma) looks like something you move out of the way of the lawn mower. The one I purchased looked like a huge light-colored rock. It was just as heavy as a huge rock. Cooked vs. Raw I’m sure cooked jicama works just fine for some dishes. My initial venture into jicama land was […]

Since reducing my carb intake I feel great! I no longer think of this as a dietary change. I think of it as a way of life. Just like some people don’t eat radishes or broccoli or liver, I choose not to eat foods with a high glycemic index. In other words, in general I […]

Lentil, Cashew, Lime Soup

As I toy with raw and non-raw recipes, I find that I’m using a lot of legumes. Lentils are a favorite in my household, but this time the lentil soup took on a different twist. Not being able to rely on my old standby, Goya seasoning packets, I had to get creative. So, this time […]

Making a bowl of raw oatmeal is easier than cooking it. It takes half the time and half the cleanup. I’m not 100% raw by any means, but since I’ve decided to take a trip on the road to raw eating, I thought it important to figure out how to make a raw breakfast. I […]

This is a post about baking so I think it’s only fair to say, I’m not a baker. I can cook pretty well, but when it comes to baking, well, that’s a horse of a different color. I believe the reason I’m not a baker is because baking always seemed to be a fine art. […]

Ever since I’ve been on my real food adventure, I’ve been getting excited about preparing food again. I now browse through magazines to get ideas of new recipes to cook.

Beginning the Transition

Beginning the Transition

| September 8, 2011 | 0 Comments

One thing that I found to be very helpful when transitioning from my old way of eating to making healthier choices is to have the family on board. Making the change is difficult enough but it could be even more difficult with a defiant family. If you don’t have family support, your road will be […]
