Tofu Noodles with Mushrooms and Eggplant

This tofu noodles recipe is one my sister Jo created (although since she only gave me general verbal instructions I’ve kinda been winging it, too). She is the queen of finding time-saving hacks for making her low-carb lifestyle easy to navigate. And as with all my low-starch recipes, my husband likes this Asian-inspired dish, too–so I’m betting those of you watching a...

Low-Carb African Peanut Soup

This low-carb African peanut soup practically transforms the original recipe, which is decidedly high-starch, into something different entirely.

This way you get the nutrition of the full egg without extra additives–natural or not (which is often the case in commercial mayonnaise or salad dressing brands that contain added sugars.) This is good news if you have heart health issues, such as high...

Stuffed Zucchini

This stuffed zucchini (or summer squash) actually calls for chicken sausage, but to make it vegetarian the sausage can easily be left out or swapped for beans. The mix of flavors and melted goat cheese make it a surprising bake. It is both a good side dish and, with double servings, a light low-carb summer entree. I’m getting more wellness coach testimonials about my low-starch recipe...
