They are high in protein, low in sugar, gluten free, high in potassium and antioxidants {And… each muffin is below 100 calories with only a few carbs}….

Spinach Cauliflower Mash with Garlic Shrimp

I love mashed potatoes, always have. I am not joking when I say this cauliflower spinach mash tastes just like it. It is creamy and hearty. With a touch of added spinach, it is even more nutritious than just plain cauliflower. Don’t let the GREEN scare you, this recipe rocks. I have a few friends…

Zucchini Pasta alla Carbonara

Carbonara sauce is creamy and delicious, but not so friendly on your hips. I decided to change that. You can have the taste and the healthy aspect all in one. I chose not to incorporate the egg yolk into the dish because I believe you can still get the same flavor here. The below recipe…

Cheesecake Oatmeal Pancakes

Dessert for breakfast?? These are flourless pancakes made with oats and egg whites, topped with a light cheesecake mixture.

Loaded Baked Potato Crepe (Flourless)

I love fluffy egg whites. I came across the recipe by accident one day attempting to make an omelet with potatoes. I couldn’t understand why the omelet was much thinner and delicate than usual. I realized that the starch (sweet potato, rustic potato, butternut squash, pumpkin) acts as flour and changes the chemical composition of…

I like to call this the “Commuter Special.” If you commute to work and need to grab breakfast on the “Go” in the morning, this is for you. I get ready in the morning, grab a jar of oatmeal from my fridge and I’m on my way. Once I get onto my LIRR train, I…
