We have another vegetable to consider beyond green beans and broccoli. It’s cauliflower. Cauliflower is a vegetable that really stands out in fiber, magnesium and Vitamin C.

A gluten free dish, made with a little potato as a binder, great spices, lots of cauliflower bound and with an egg. Mix with with coconut flour or other flour of your choice and now you are ready cook them up. A great way to get kids and adults to eat their vegetables. I assu ..read more

Hi! Its been a while since I  blogged and share some tasty new food finds from my shopping sprees.   Today it’s a fruit I found called the Mandarinquat.  A hybrid fruit cross between a mandarin and a kumquaut  is short seasoned, January through March only.  Sorry we are getting to the finish line but Frieda’s on Amazon may ship some to you.   Originally they were cultivated in Southeast Asia now California in the citrus belt. I used to love the original kumquat around the holidays, in specialty food stores you could buy them candied. This fruit, the Mandarinquat ..read more

We are in Apple heaven now, October and November and pies are all around  us.  Dietitians and nutritionists promote the apple as a super food with a lot of great nutrients in every bite. Fiber stays the same, enduring baking and roasting.  I brought 6 lbs of apples in my luggage back from Connecticut and  used Macouns and Cortlands, but any type will do. So what do they taste like roasted? Real apple taste and crispy like well bacon ? When we bake a pie, lots of the real good stuff gets left behind..like the peels! They contain both soluble and insoluble fiber and a antioxi ..read more

It’s hot and sometimes we overlook the low carbohydrate ideas for snacks and light meals in favor of  high blood sugar rising foods…you know what they are and nothing wrong with them .. no soap box today it’s too hot! I made these rolls the other night when 115 degrees made one say oh no I’m not cooking!   Made these 3 years ago so a repeat this summer is in order.  I am always thinking of new snack ideas for patients in my diabetes education class I teach.  I started to go more ethnic which is a process free, fresh and most times gluten free food world to begin with!  ..read more

Recreating a high fiber oldie but goodie with roasted grapes

Sometimes resurrecting an old dish can be seen with a new set of eyes (and palate). Take a salad which was created by a  a maître d’hôtel,  or dining room manager, Oscar Tschirky,  in 1896, for charity ball at St. Mary’s Children’s hospital in NYC.  It is the Waldorf Salad  and a comeback is in order. When grapes,  apples and celery in your refrigerator bin are sitting in waiting, a salad like the Waldorf  can be made. This includes all your fiber and a  sprinkling of omegs 3’s with walnuts does the trick.  So all those buzz words you know fiber, om ..read more
