Dhokla – Steamed Mung Bean cakes

As many of you know, I have Type 2 diabetes (my story). It is pretty much in the normal range now with my low carb keto diet and intermittent fasting. I am part of a support group through the IDM program run by Toronto based kidney specialist, Dr. Jason Fung. I am so grateful to have have my health restored. Here is the link to buy the Complete Guide to Fasting, Dr. Jason Fung. The general […]

Cocoa Butter Pistachio treats

Cacao Butter Pistachio treats

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 […]

Okra with Onions and Coconut

Okra with Onions & Coconut

When I find okra in the market, I always buy it. It is a favourite of mine especially when it is a little crunchy! I’ve been trying to cook it so it’s not slimy! I was really pleased with how this recipe turned out. You could also roast the okra in the oven and garnish with the fried onion – coconut sauce in this recipe. Almost any Indian market will carry fresh Curry (kari) leaves. Get […]

Raspberry Avocado Pie

Raspberry Avocado Pie

I had some over ripe avocados and thought it would be a shame to waste them. This recipe is a little taste of how I play with left overs! It is so much fun to look in my fridge & pantry and improvise. I managed to trick my sons into eating avocados. They don’t like them. How is that even possible? I told them this was a raspberry  tart. I usually add 1 tsp of […]

Soaking & Sprouting

Soaking & Sprouting

  Studies have shown that phytic Acid is the #1 anti-nutrient found in seeds, nuts, legumes, and grains. It inhibits the absorption of calcium, magnesium, iron, copper, and zinc. Sprouting neutralizes phytic acid. Many enzymes that help with digestion are produced during the process of germination. I cannot adequately stress the importance of soaking and sprouting, thus eating live foods! It is a regular occurrence in our home and getting into this habit will become […]

Cucumber Avocado Shake

Cucumber Avocado Shake

My favourite summer time drink! I am regularly at the Vancouver farmers markets, usually selling my Chai and Spices. At every market, I will trade tea for various produce. Cucumbers being one of them during season. I really love this shake below and it is easy to make and carry especially when I am busy and have no time to stop to eat at the markets. This works really well with my diabetes prevention diet […]

Truffles

Chai Spice Walnut Truffles

I have a sweet tooth and when I went on raw food vegan diet for curing my diabetes & quit sugar, I experimented with many desserts that I could safely eat. My friends who have by now all tried these goodies asked if I would post it so here you go! I tried many sweeteners which don’t elevate my blood sugar. Stevia, it’s hit or miss for me. If I have the wrong amount it […]
