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.
5 big soup carrots, washed chopped

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.Read Full Post »

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 ofRead Full Post »

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...Read Full Post »

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...Read Full Post »

Potatoes have earned a bad rap, but they are truly a perfect food. High in fiber and low in fat, potatoes are ideal for erasing diabetes and for reaching or maintaining your goal weight. 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. I've included my favorite blend of spices, but you can use any th...Read Full Post »

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...Read Full Post »

Oat milk in this recipe is a great way to sweeten the holiday. It is naturally sweeter than other unsweetened alternative milks. This nog treat is not low calorie, but it is plant-based. It's a big improvement over recipes that contain cream and eggs.

- 1/4 cup cashew or almond butter

Another recipe from Bill... This is his lovely wife's recipe.
Bill says this is the most fantastic easy-to-make salad he's ever had. He says the key is to use a high-quality aged balsamic vinegar (William Sonoma sells one for $32). Please note that this will NOT work with just any balsamic vinegar, it MUST b...Read Full Post »

My friend Barbara had to produce a few small bites when unexpected company dropped by. She had these ingredients in your pantry and fridge and tossed them together to make a super dish. Serve by itself or over rice or salad or in a burrito or taco shell for variety.

1 avocado, chopped
1 cup frozen corn, thawed
2 cans (15 oz each) bl...Read Full Post »

These pancakes are just the best! Fluffy and warm with a little crunch, but sweet and nutritious. You can use any type of berries in the maple syrup. The juice of the thawed berries helps to flavor and to extend the small amount of maple syrup that you use in the recipe.
