We're back, with another dose of hearty comfort food, that fits very nicely into a low carb lifestyle! Featuring ground caraway seed, cauliflower and slightly pickled cabbage, Kohl-cannon (from Blumenkohl which is the German name for cauliflower) is a decidedly German twist on Colcannon, a traditional Irish dish made with potatoes. This has quickly become …
Hello friends! Last week's conference was an opportunity to test our skill at frugal travel! As I have mentioned here before, we are artists and musicians, relying heavily on the gig economy for our incomes. A hotel room AND restaurant meals was a bit too "spendy" for us. We needed some travel-ready food for both …
This hearty lasagna uses thinly-cut eggplant in place of carb-filled pasta noodles. The trick here is to slice that eggplant nice and thin (slicing the short way makes this easier) before roasting to keep it tender, melt-in-your mouth gooood! We love the subtle, smoky flavor that the roasted eggplant brings to this dish and don't miss those noodles one bit... (read more)

They freeze well and you can thaw them quickly in the toaster. Start to finish, you can have a batch of these finished in 30 minutes! Add 2 teaspoons of vanilla and your favorite low carb sweetener for a sweet waffle, or a half cup of your favorite shredded cheese and a pinch of dried herbs for a more savory snack... (read more)

One of my all-time favorite meals is Spaghetti Bolognese. Once we adopted the Paleo / Primal lifestyle (which advocates eliminating grains), one of our first challenges was to find a substitute for the pasta in this dish! We tried making zucchini noodles, or "zoodles", and have never looked back! Lightly sautéed for just a minute or two, …
