Apple "Sausage" Thanksgiving Stuffing

Posted on November 11, 2018 at 9:25 AM Comments comments (0)



My family loves this stuffing. There's no oil, no butter, and no eggs. The broth is what makes it moist. You can prepare the stuffing days in advance and keep in fridge. It even freezes well. Just allow plenty of time to heat thoroughly.

Pre-heat oven to 375°F


1 bag (15 oz.) dry seasoned stuffing cubes

1 to 1 ½ cu...

Curried Carrot Soup with Pistachios

Posted on October 8, 2018 at 8:20 PM Comments comments (0)


This soup is a favorite at my house. It seems we never get tired of eating it. It's as delicious as it is nutritious. One serving gives you 120 calories, 6 grams of fiber, and all the vitamin A and beta-carotene you'll need for the day. It's rich in vitamins B1, B6, C, and K, and it brings a smile to your face. 


Serves 6

5 big soup carrots, washed chopped

High cholesterol? Diet changes as effective as statins

Posted on February 18, 2018 at 7:10 AM Comments comments (0)



A recent study showed that when you eat plant protein instead of animal protein cholesterol levels go down.


Researchers looked at more than 100 papers that studied what happens when you add plant-based protein, e.g. beans, lentils, soy, grains, etc., to the diet, and, at the same time, you limit or eliminate animal-based...

Crockpot Bean Chili with Sweet Potatoes and Barley

Posted on January 2, 2018 at 12:45 AM Comments comments (0)



While these ingredients render a delicious pot of nutritious, plant-based, erasing diabetes chili, you can add just about any vegetable that's wilting in your fridge. Instead of using a slow cooker, you can make this in a pot on your stove, letting it simmer for at least an hour to maximize the flavor. Even so, I find that the Crockpot is best for letting the chili cook slowly and for letting the flavors explode.

Have pain or funny feeling in your feet? Cure it with diet.

Posted on January 1, 2018 at 10:30 AM Comments comments (0)




Neuropathy, damage to the nerves of the feet, can be crippling. At best, some describe it as having rocks in their socks or a loss of sensation, but many describe it as severe, stabbing pain. The longer you have diabetes, the greater your chance for developing neuropathy. Half of people who have diabetes for 25 years have neuropathy.


If you ask around, most health practitioners will say t...

Weight loss tip 4: Speed it up

Posted on December 6, 2017 at 6:55 AM Comments comments (1)



Research shows that interval training—workouts in which you alternate periods of high-intensity exercise with low-intensity recovery periods— lowers glucose better and burns more calories over a short period of time than steady-state cardio (doing the same thing for your whole workout time). Also known as HIIT (high-intensity interval training) and MIIT (moderate-intensity int...

Sweet Potato Vegetable Lasagna

Posted on October 29, 2017 at 1:20 PM Comments comments (0)


This dish is super! The combination of sweet potatoes and vegetarian meatballs make this lasagna better than any other. I’d love to add a layer of spinach or kale, but my husband doesn’t care for greens inside his food. Go figure. Instead, we eat steamed greens on the side. But you can add them in if you’d like. Just chop them fine. A bit of

Weight loss tip 3: Limit the nuts

Posted on October 29, 2017 at 2:55 AM Comments comments (0)

Nuts can stop weight loss in a nanosecond. If you are having trouble losing weight, you might be eating too many nuts.


I agree that nuts are a good source of omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, and other essential nutrients. In research, nuts have been shown to lower blood cholesterol and not to cause weight gain; however, this is not what I see in practice.


I like to borrow a line from...

Linzer Tart Oat Bran Bread

Posted on September 23, 2017 at 11:15 AM Comments comments (0)


I bake these in a glass baking dish and line it with compostable parchment paper, so there’s no need for oil. The bread doesn’t stick to the baking dish. Just rinse the dish, and it’s clean. The parchment paper gets tossed into the compost. See, it’s a win-win all around.


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a 8X8 backing dish with parchment pa...

Weight loss tip 2: Limit flour products

Posted on September 20, 2017 at 12:05 AM Comments comments (0)



Eating foods that are made from flour can be a problem for weight loss. When you eat flour, your body answers back with insulin. And when there's insulin around, it's harder for you to lose weight.


Insulin is a hormone made by the pancreas. It's a mover. It moves things around.

This recipe delivers delicious crispy fries without oil or salt. You can use any kind of potato, but I find that Yukon gold work best.

Chocolate chip, chickpea blondies

Posted on June 25, 2017 at 10:05 PM Comments comments (0)


Processing the chickpeas until they’re not yet smooth, gives an almost crunchy and definitely crumbly texture to these sweet treats. Using chickpeas instead of flour brings blood sugar down because beans give more fiber to the mixture than flour does. Beans are low-calorie and low-fat, a recipe for weight loss. Sprinkling chopped walnuts on top before baking gives more of crunch and magnifies the ta...
