I have been craving an old recipe of mine that I no longer can have due to my tomato allergies, but created this one as a substitute. There a ton of variations to this recipe which is great because you’ll never tire of it. You can either keep it vegan or add meat, cheese, etc. You can use traditional shaped zucchini or round ones if you can get a hold of some. The one I used in the photo below is from my garden.

The other day I was watching the Paula Deen show and she made water melon coolers. I happened to have had a huge watermelon that I had planned on using when I had company, but didn’t. Making a watermelon smoothie was a perfect way to consume the watermelon fast and watermelon is a great diuretic. I am allergic to citrus so I skipped the lemon juice, but wish I could have used it. But even without the lemon juice, these are
great! And if you choose to add Greek yogurt, it will assist those with candida, though they should avoiding sugary drink. Paula used watermelon, lemon juice and a big scoop of lemon sorbet. Lemon juice is also a great diuretic. I don’t recall her portion sizes on ingredients, but you can’t go wrong with this smoothie recipe, as it is very forgiving. I used Greek yogurt and pineapple juice, but you can use just about anything creamy with any juice you wish. Suggestions for creaminess are: vanilla ice cream, flavored yogurt, whipping cream, etc. All you need is a blender. Enjoy this refreshing watermelon smoothie! You can even make popsicles or other gluten free beverages and cocktails! Continue reading “Watermelon Smoothie Recipe”

Let’s face it french fries that have been deep fried are high in calories. If you’d like a french fry lower in fat and calories just bake them. I’m all for low fat french fries! I recently purchased a Nonstick French Fry Baking Pan which allows the heat to rise form the bottom through holes in the pan, allowing browning to occur on both sides. A little olive oil spray makes them taste like regular french fries. UPDATE: I have successfully made these using a regular baking sheet. You may use russet potatoes, sweet potatoes, or golden or red potatoes. Guilt free French fries! What’s not to enjoy? Continue reading “Low Fat Healthy Baked French Fries”

This recipe is adapted from Cuisinart. It is your typical easy vanilla ice cream recipe, but instead of using whole milk and whipping cream, I use non-fat milk and whipping cream, sometimes, raw almond milk, etc. If you use non-fat milk it will be lower in fat, not by much, but every little bit helps. Using almond milk raises the protein and makes it more nutritious, especially if you make your own homemade raw almond milk. I like topping it with fresh fruit or my homemade fresh blackberry topping. Either way, it is very yummy!
