I was featured on The Fasting Method. Read more about the article here. Please go to the page to learn more about the Fasting Method. Post brain surgery, I had no excuse for not dealing with my diabetes. It was time to research cures. I wanted a magic pill but quickly learnt, that does not exist. I was sure that I would end up crippled, with dementia and other diseases. In July 2017, while on […]
On a recent visit to India, my brother’s chef Manju made me lots of delicious low carb vegetarian dishes. I choose to eat a lot of dark vegetables because they also seem to do well for my inflammation issues. Manju spoilt me with her delicate dishes. The dark vegetable (in the red bowl) is the Tambadi Bhaji (or red vegetable) in Marathi, the language spoken in Maharashtra State. Use this recipe with spinach, kale, chard, […]
This is an adaptation of my Tummy Tea. I created this delicious drink with a combination of my products. It really prevented me from getting sick during my long work hours at the Craft shows.
Sometimes all my body craves is plain yogurt and fruit. We often make our own yogurt and I will try to post a recipe for that. This yogurt was made with raw milk, direct from a local farm! Thanks to Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon Morrell, I eat real human food all the time and stay healthy. The berries were bought from the Vancouver farmers market, where I regularly sell my teas in the spring […]
My husband John, makes the best Keto Dutch Baby, and often when we stay with friends he makes one for breakfast. I just love how it puffs up and we often eat ours with bacon on the side. After this, I don’t need to eat a lot more! However, I cannot eat it anymore as it has gluten. So I tried to adapt the many keto pancake recipes out there to one that […]
I had a craving for caffeine and a popsicle! I decided my Saffron Chai had all the makings of the Indian ‘Kulfi’ ice-cream. Of course, as I am diabetic I try to make low carb treats. This one kept me happy most of the summer. I would eat them at the Farmer’s Markets and customers asked if I am selling them. I am not! I don’t need another project but you can enjoy. Please check out […]
As many of you know, I am diabetic so I eat gluten and sugar-free. I am also prone to nausea when in a car and sucking on ginger really helps. I also get nauseous during my longer keto fasting days. I knew that ginger would help but needed a sugar free recipe. I sucked on these sugar free candied ginger during a recent road trip and was able to not take any of the “tablets” […]
Being diabetic, I’m constantly making low carb/ low sugar treats. These 2 sweeteners are zero or 1 on the GI Make sure the sweetener you use does not have added ingredients that can raise your sugars. Substitute nuts and berries for any of your favourite. I use the low carb nuts usually. If you don’t have moulds, pour into a tray & cut when it sets. Ingredients: 1/3 C Cacao Butter 1/2 C butter or […]
