Turkey Veggie Cheeseburger Sloppy Joe

This sloppy joe isn’t your standard. In addition to lean ground turkey it punches up the nutrition by adding pureed veggies into the sauce–so you don’t miss the sweetness of a traditional sloppy joe sauce that is full of added sugars (a really good thing since experts recommend everyone watch their intake of added sugars, not just those with diabetes or prediabetes). Except for...

Amy’s Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas

This cheesy chicken enchiladas recipe is one my sister Amy is well known for. I’ve adapted it to make it a bit healthier, while still keeping it super creamy. To make the recipe low-carb just omit the tortilla and spoon the chicken mixture directly into the baking dish to top with cheese. We like to have a side of roasted bell pepper and lots of individual toppings–to make it a truly...

Ground Chicken Chili

This ground chicken chili makes for a hearty, tasty, and mildly spiced dinner on a cold night. It includes cannellini beans and a small amount of corn, but I’ve also left them out and had my hubby add them to his own bowl, so my serving is low-starch (also a great choice for those with diabetes or prediabetes, or those eating low-carb). Of course, I’ve also loaded it up with extra...

Turkey Meatloaf

This turkey meatloaf is virtually the same recipe as my low-carb turkey meatballs–with the exception of oats in place of the breadcrumbs. I also do an organic beef version with the addition of sauteed onions, which is just as good, if not better. Both limit the starch addition to make it friendlier to a low-carb or diabetic lifestyle. That being said, I still like to serve it with a squirt...

You have a low-starch, low-carb recipe for a cold evening. It also makes a wonderful leftover for lunch the...

Chicken Pesto Cauliflower Bake

This chicken pesto cauliflower bake is another one of those recipes I just made up. I got the idea for flavors from one of the low-carb pizza options we make, which uses chicken, pesto, a mix of cheeses, and tomatoes. As usual, roasted cauliflower stands in for pasta, making it a wonderful low-starch casserole for those following a diabetes or prediabetes diet. Also note this dish is fast to...
